Most Christian moms and dads have thoughts about Jesus throughout the day. Therefore, talking to your children about God can be a simple as opening up about what’s already on your mind. Below are 10 simple topics to help get conversations started. Use starters that feel natural to you, or think of other.

The Problem of Naturalism

Lately, I’ve thought a bit about the idea of what is known as “naturalism.” There have been a lot of different thoughts about why this philosophy does not have the explanatory scope or power necessary to explain much of the universe. However, I’ve been thinking about a different aspect of naturalism lately. Mostly, I’ve been thinking about how closed-minded and limited this worldview is.

Take My Word for It

I recently heard one atheist mention (several times, actually) that a person’s personal testimony of an experience with God would not be sufficient evidence to make a claim of His existence. Now, to a degree, I would have to agree with him. However, there are some inconsistencies with this idea.

Who Designed the Designer?

Originally, I had wanted to write something about a quote that I had read from Richard Dawkins where he said something to the effect that, by all outward appearances, if we didn’t know any better, it looks like life is the product of design.

Evolution Lacks Explanatory Scope/Power

One of the more hotly debated issues of evolution these days is the alleged lack of what are called “transitional forms.” This refers to the idea that, in the fossil record, one would expect to find fossils of creatures who exhibit various stages of form from one species to another. Evolutionists, of course, claim that these transitional forms exist and creationists claim that they do not.

Let’s Talk About Jesus…Nicely!

I cannot say that my memory is not what it used to be. It’s been bad for as long as I can remember. So, just from last week to this week, I had already forgotten that I was going to write about this topic and I had already written a whole post about something completely different. Fortunately, I caught myself and will post the other article next week.

The Truth Hurts… But It’s Still the Truth

Interesting thing about truth…it’s true whether you want it to be or not. Sometimes we like it. Sometimes it doesn’t matter either way. Other times, however, we don’t particularly like it at all. It’s those times that we have to be very careful.
