Divine Command Theory Explained

A popular argument for God’s existence is the moral argument. Here Christians have the advantage of grounding objective moral values, such as “good,” in God himself. God is the good; He is the greatest conceivable being. As such, He is all-loving, fair, and just. That is to say, that these moral values really do exist because they exist in God himself.

Now if you’re talking to an unbeliever who agrees that moral values Continue reading “Divine Command Theory Explained”

Don’t Miss Christmas

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the Continue reading “Don’t Miss Christmas”

Good Works Cannot Save You

I’ve often heard Christians say that, “The evidence of salvation is good works,” while others have said, “No, the evidence of salvation is inward belief.” Why do Christians feel the need to make a distinction here? While it is true that both are evidence of salvation, proponents of each needn’t argue in favor of one over the other; it’s completely unnecessary.

Make no mistake about it: Christians are Continue reading “Good Works Cannot Save You”

Evolution Is a Belief

We have often heard that evolution is a fact. As a matter of fact, some claim that it’s not even a theory since we know it to be true. But what do we actually know about evolution to be true?  Before we consider the answer to that question, it’s important to understand Continue reading “Evolution Is a Belief”

Importance of Social Media in Evangelism

For years, I had no interest in using social media for any reason; I thought it was dumb, to be honest. My thoughts haven’t changed much since then, having used it for a couple of years now, but let me share with you the reason I started in the first place.

Why Would God Allow Evil?

When considering this question, it’s not advisable to do so with an emotional appeal. In order to address this question effectively, we must do so from an intellectual perspective . . . not an emotional one.

To ask, “What kind of God would allow evil and suffering in the world?”, is Continue reading “Why Would God Allow Evil?”

Police Are Ministers of God

For the purpose of this post, I am going to refrain from sharing my thoughts on the officer’s careless and reckless behavior (or lack thereof) concerning the recent school shooting in Parkland Florida . . . let’s put that aside for a moment.

Having said that, I think there are way too many people who Continue reading “Police Are Ministers of God”

How to Pray

When it comes to prayer, look no further than the model put forth by Jesus himself . . . when He said, “This, then, is how you should pray: Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us today our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one. For yours is the kingdom, the power, and the glory forever. Amen” (Matthew 6:9-13).

Now some manuscripts don’t have Continue reading “How to Pray”

Christian Apologetics Course

Starting March 4th, I will be teaching a class on Christian apologetics, a topic I am very passionate about. For those of you who are unfamiliar with apologetics . . . basically, it is a branch of Christian theology that seeks to explore the rational warrant for Christian truth claims. Contrary to popular belief, there are actually good reasons to believe that Christianity is true, and that’s what apologetics is all about.

The class will also focus on Continue reading “Christian Apologetics Course”
