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:
Yes, He did.
““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)
“When Jesus had finished all these words, He said to His disciples, 2 “You know that after two days the Passover is coming, and the Son of Man is to be handed over for crucifixion.”” (Matthew 26:1-2)
“Then Jesus *said to them, “You will all fall away because of Me this night, for it…

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?
During these past few months, I’ve been focusing on other projects and studies I feel are more pressing than the dated movement known as New Atheism (otherwise known as Fundy Atheism), but it’s been awhile since I’ve looked at what they’re arguing so I thought it’d be fun to clean up the house a little.
Some critics believe that Paul, in verses such as Romans 12:16 and 1 Peter 3:8, is forbidding any sort of intellectual discussion or debate in favor of being of the same mind. Is that what Paul was arguing for?
2 Corinthians 12 verses 7-10 have been the cause of many debates throughout the history of religious scholarship. I’ve come across instances where speculation has gone beyond innocent or harmless solutions into something more apologetic in nature. Let’s take a look at this dividing passage.
Easter is around the corner and that means the skeptics have once again set out to disprove the resurrection of Jesus Christ. However, the way they go about it leaves a lot of room for improvement.
Does the jealousy of God, as recorded in Exodus 20:5, contradict Paul’s view of love in 1 Corinthians 13:4?
Does 1 Corinthians 13:5 contradict Biblical judgment? Does the Bible describe two different Gods? In a way, yes, it does.
I dive back into my look at the TULIP with the doctrine of Irresistible Grace, which corresponds to the fourth letter. As with previous examples, I find the Calvinist position lacking any Scriptural support.
Are miracles prevalent today? If so, how do we approach the view of cessationism? Can one logically hold to cessationism whilst acknowledging the existence of miracles?
In part one of my look at Christian rock, I examined four common arguments opposed to it and found there to be a lack of any serious prohibition. In this article, I’ll take a look at a position that seems to turn the above findings on its head. If the Bible is silent on music does that mean it prohibits it?
