Do You Seriously Think God Can’t Use You? Think Again!

I came across the following image on Facebook. I’m not sure who originally created it but I just love it. The image entitled “Do You Seriously Think God Can’t Use You?” is a simple reminder that God can use anybody… including you and me. Never let the enemy tell you otherwise!

The Paradox of Karma

Posted by on 8:00 am in World Religions | Comments Off on The Paradox of Karma

I wonder if many people have really ever thought about the idea of Karma. The way that I have always understood it, when you did something selfish, insensitive, rude, cruel, mean, or otherwise unkind you will accumulate “bad Karma.” On the other hand, when you do things that are kind, considerate, selfless, caring, loving or otherwise “good” you will earn “good Karma.”

Emotions vs. Reason

Posted by on 8:00 am in Belief | Comments Off on Emotions vs. Reason

For Easter this year, my family and I were out of town. We ended up attending Easter services at Central Christian Church in Henderson, NV. After the opening worship band left the stage, there was a young man who came out and presented a monologue/poem/rap that highlighted a good deal of what Christianity is about. I was impressed at the broad spectrum of doctrine, challenges and truths that were professed during this brief presentation.

The God-Man

If you’ve been around Christianity long enough, you’ve probably heard someone say that Jesus was “fully man and fully God.” Perhaps you’ve heard some other variation. Perhaps you’ve wondered how that is possible. Hopefully, at the very least, you took it on faith. Better than that, hopefully you’ve wrestled with it a bit in order to get an understanding that you feel comfortable with intellectually.

Picking and Choosing

Posted by on 8:00 am in God's Character | Comments Off on Picking and Choosing

If you were to ask most apologists, Christian philosophers or theologians what the most difficult objection was to Christianity, they would mostly give you the same answer. The Problem of Evil. Some might refer to this as the “Problem of Evil and Suffering” or some such thing, but it usually involves the same idea.

Easy Wins or Baby and Bathwater

Posted by on 8:00 am in Christian Living | Comments Off on Easy Wins or Baby and Bathwater

Recently I had one of those strange moments. I had seen something that made me think that it was not something that I would do. What it was isn’t important. What is important is that the reason I felt that I wouldn’t do the same was because it wasn’t a very “Christian” thing to do.

Double Standards

Posted by on 8:00 am in Apologetics | Comments Off on Double Standards

It always is fascinating to me when people will try to refute a theistic claim and then turn around and make a claim based on the very logic they are trying to use to refute the other’s claim. An example of this came up during a recent debate with Dr. William Lane Craig and Dr. Lawrence Krauss. The topic of the debate was “Is there Evidence for God?”

The Truth – Works Both Ways

Posted by on 8:00 am in Apologetics | 2 comments

The truth has an interesting characteristic about it. If something is true, you can generally work the idea backward or forward and it just works. Let’s take a simple math problem, for example. If you add together 2 + 3, you get 5. Now, if you work it backwards and start at 5 and subtract 3, you end up back at 2. Most math teachers will tell their students that this is a good way to verify that they have answered a math problem correctly.

What About the Alternatives?

Posted by on 8:00 am in Apologetics | Comments Off on What About the Alternatives?

There are many arguments for the existence of God. Many of the best philosophers in the marketplace today will use various cosmological arguments, teleological arguments (arguments from design) and moral arguments among others. A common tactic from non-believers is to post some alternative explanation and claim that this eliminates the necessity of belief in God.
