The God Who Answers Skeptics

I am scheduled to preach a sermon at the end of July and I have been studying Exodus chapters three and four in preparation. I love the story of Exodus and often turn there when asked to preach. In chapter three, we see our protagonist, Moses, admit some of his own flaws and express hisContinue reading “The God Who Answers Skeptics”

Review: Jesus Among Secular Gods

I am the youth minister at a local church in North Texas, and twice a year I walk some of our students through a discipleship course. This time I presented them with a number of Bible studies to choose from, and they landed on Jesus Among Secular Gods, a study written by Ravi Zacharias andContinue reading “Review: Jesus Among Secular Gods”

Apologetics: An Alternative for the Next Generation

It has been my observation that the next generation of Christians commonly finds themselves between a rock and a hard place. We’ll call the rock Nominal Christianity. We’ll allow the hard place to be Skepticism. Nominal Christianity Nominal means in name only. Nominal Christianity then is an inauthentic faith that is only associated with Christianity inContinue reading “Apologetics: An Alternative for the Next Generation”

Does the Old Testament Condone Slavery?

Someone once said, “Do you advocate for slavery and genocide? If not, you’re more moral than the God of the Bible.” First of all, as I always wish to point out, the atheist has no objective moral ground on which to stand. Compared to what objective standard is slavery and genocide immoral? I have anContinue reading “Does the Old Testament Condone Slavery?”

What is the Euthyphro Dilemma?

Socrates is probably my favorite philosopher. The guy just walks around ancient Greece asking questions. Who can’t relate to that? I’ve always been the annoying kid with a thousand questions. One observation I have gleamed from asking questions is that people don’t like being questioned. Even if you are genuine in your asking, many peopleContinue reading “What is the Euthyphro Dilemma?”

Can an Atheist Be Moral?

I read an article the other day accusing theists of claiming that God is the basis of morality and therefore an atheist cannot be moral. Just so we are 100% clear with each other: I’ve never heard a theist make this argument. The author of the article is making the classical mistake of conflating moralContinue reading “Can an Atheist Be Moral?”

What is Pascal’s Wager?

Blaise Pascal was a 17th century French philosopher. He “wagered” in his work, Pensées (Thoughts), that a person should endeavor to believe in God because they had nothing to lose and everything to gain. If you gain, you gain all. If you lose, you lose nothing. Why not wager to believe? Issues With the WagerContinue reading “What is Pascal’s Wager?”
