180 In A Matter Of Seconds!

Image
I have some exciting news for the Ray Comfort fans out there: Living Waters is putting together a documentary entitled 180 which will feature interviews with people on the streets showing how they change their minds from a pro-choice to pro-life stance in a matter of seconds.  Here's the trailer:



And here is a message from Ray on why this is an important message and what you can do to support the movie:


After it's release on September 26, the movie can be watched for FREE at the official website. You can find out more here: http://www.180movie.com/

And as a side note, if you've not yet seen Living Waters' On The Box program and blog, you should consider doing so today. The program tackles evangelism and other topics relevant to sharing the Gospel in today's society. Also, if you're an apologist or someone who likes a good debate, you may want to consider checking out Ray's blog where there are many hecklers/trolls... just saying :-)

Celebrating Three Years!

Today marks three years since I first began this blog! How time flies! I initially became interested in apologetics through a friend who began lending me books, most notably Josh McDowell's The New Evidence That Demands a Verdict (which my blog is giving away to one lucky winner; see bottom of post) and Lee Strobel's The Case for Christ; I became so interested that I eventually purchased my own copies of these books and many more. Then, in February 2008, I met an atheist and that is where the idea for a blog originated. After some thought,  I started this blog on August 23, 2008.

Here are just a few of the highlights from the past year.

At the beginning of this year, apologetics trainer and speaker Mikel Del Rosario did a guest post for the blog; he tackled the question "Can people be good without God?" And in February, the I had the privilege of reviewing his Accessilble Apologetics curriculum, a curriculum that I highly recommend.

I've also started to put out…

The Inconsistency of Atheists Denying Objective Morality

Image
I stumbled across this video today, and I think whoever put it together did a pretty good job. It demonstrates the inconsistency of atheists denying objective morality while affirming that there is moral good and evil.

And while we're on the topic of atheism and morality, I would like to point out that no one is claiming that atheists are immoral; when Christians say that atheists can't be good without God, we are merely pointing to the obvious fact that there must be a moral standard in order for an atheist to claim that something is right or wrong (which they do, often contradicting themselves as this video will show) -- and if there must be a moral standard, then there must be a Moral Lawgiver (whom we Christians say is God). Keep that in mind as you watch this video...

Book Review: I Don't Have Enough Faith to Be an Atheist

Image
My introduction to the book I Don’t Have Enough Faith to Be an Atheist by Norman Geisler and Frank Turek began when I was making a wish list of apologetics books one day. The title was very intriguing to me, especially since I have had many an encounter with atheists, and the material presented within the pages did not let me down in the least!

Norman Geisler describes the book as follows: “… the fact that we are Christians is not the issue; why we are Christians is the important point. And that’s the focus of this book.”
The book, which makes for a great reference tool, covers such topics as absolute truth, SURGE as proof for creation by God, naturalism, evolution, miracles, early eyewitness testimony about Jesus, Mother Theresa vs. Hitler, Top ten reasons we know the New Testament writers told the truth, the Resurrection of Jesus, Was Jesus God or just a moral teacher?, and Jesus’ teachings about the Bible. Also included are three appendixes in which you will discover the answers to t…

A Challenge to Theistic Evolution

The following was written (by me) in response to some comments made on another blog a while back. I stumbled across this last night and thought it provided some good insight into why theistic evolution doesn't hold it's own weight. The quote at the beginning was written by a Christian who was rebuttling this TE.

---------- I know you may say your natural reading of the text isn't necessarily my natural meaning of the text etc. but words have specific, objective meanings, and in the context of the Bible most of these words, chapters and books can be understood straightforwardly in their immediate context and in the context of the rest of the Bible.
While it is true that people interpret the Bible in different ways, we are called to "rightly divide the Word of truth." We are also told to "test all things." God made it perfectly clear what He was talking about; that's why the same things are stated in the Bible in so many different ways, and when we put t…

Quote of the Week: Wilberforce on Defending the Faith

Image
"In an age in which infidelity abounds, do we observe parents carefully instructing their children in the principles of faith which they profess? Or do they furnish their children with arguments for the defense of that faith? ...it is not surprising to see them abandon a position which they are unable to defend." ~ William Wilberforce
