In the final instalment of our look into the famous trilemma defence, we address the theory that Jesus was a lunatic not unlike others who identify themselves the same way today.
If Jesus wasn’t a liar could He have been honestly mistaken about His divine identity instead?
Before we can begin to examine the divine claims of Christ themselves we need to first ask ourselves who Jesus really was? Was He a liar, a lunatic, or Lord? In this article, we’ll look at the first of those possibilities. Did Jesus lie about His divinity?
In the garden of Gethsemane, when Jesus was being arrested by the Temple guards of the Sanhedrin, why did the disciples flee? Is this evidence that they didn’t believe that Jesus was divine?
Did Jesus Christ really claim to be divine, or were these claims added by the church long after the fact?
As the new year rolls around many of us are beginning to wonder what 2019 has in store for us. Do you fear what’s ahead? If so, let’s step into the new year with a fresh view on the nature of faith.
Are modern translations of the Bible trying to erase the existence of God from the Old Testament?
This is the start of a new series that will look into the debate of the various translations of the Bible that have been formulated over the centuries. Where did we get our English translations and is there really only one right translation or can we trust all of our major translations?

A number of skeptics have claimed that there is evidence to suggest that Jesus really wasn’t divine, such as His cry of abandonment on the cross. Did Jesus cry out in despair or was there something more?
In part two of our look at the claims and arguments made by the anti-holiday crowd, we’ll see if partaking in festivities with the Easter Bunny and eggs mean we are worshipping pagan deities.
Proponents of materialism argue that religion and science do not mix. They claim that evolution refutes the Bible and thus undermines Christianity. Are they correct for thinking so?
Here’s another supposed Bible contradiction well refuted by The Domain For Truth.
For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: Did Jesus forewarn the apostles of His death and resurrection?
Here are the two answers which the skeptic believes shows a Bible contradiction:

““Behold, we are going up to Jerusalem; and the Son of Man will be delivered to the chief priests and scribes, and they will condemn Him to death, 19 and will hand Him over to the Gentiles to mock and scourge and crucify Him, and on the third day He will be raised up.”” (Matthew 20:18-19)

As we continue our look at this pressing objection I’ll examine how another popular variant of the creation account stands with what I proposed in the first instalment. We’ll also examine a couple of objections.
Since religious skepticism started gaining traction critics have been harsh on the Biblical texts and their scientific findings. But are they reading the texts the way the authors intended them to be read?
