First Round Pin

Are your teens drifting away from your faith? Well if they are, it is probably because it is your faith and not theirs. You may have reasons for your faith, maybe a life changing experience, or just something you believed since you were young, but whatever the reason or reasons, it is your faith, not theirs. Once youth begin Jr. High, they begin to question everything. Not only why they have to learn algebra, (some of us still question that), but why should they listen to authority, more specifically their parents. Many young teens grudgingly do what their parents say only because they have...

The road away from Faith

How prepared are your children for college? I don’t mean academically, but spiritually. Are they solid in their Christian world view? Do you have concerns that some new friends might suggest Christianity should not be taken seriously or the Bible is full of contradictions? Or worse, actually point out some good reasons why Christianity fails as a religion? Could someone possibly point out some of those errors in the Bible? I mean, the Bible can’t be error free, it was written by men whether or not the original text was inspired by God. Do you worry they will hear from some...

Defending the Faith

Our men’s group on Sunday morning has been working through the 6 week Tactics course by Greg Koukl. We are in our final two weeks and have enjoyed some good discussions over comments, claims, or statements made by unbelievers. Some I find in books I have read, others on various atheist web sites, or simply Facebook, which can be a plethora of anti-Christian material. In the DVD series, Greg Koukl covers the material in his book Tactics, providing multiple examples for the topic of that day. Generally, I do some work ahead of time, and find other material we can wrestle with and discuss...

In But Not Of

I am reading a book titled, “In, But Not Of – A guide to Christian Ambition and the desire to Influence the World” by Hugh Hewitt. It is full of short vignettes of advice given to the young Christian. It is written for the young Christian, but certainly has wisdom that even old Christians can embrace. Dietrich Bonhoeffer shared with his sister that if he saw a madman driving a car into a group of innocent bystanders, he could not simply stand by, then comfort the wounded and bury the dead afterwards. He would have to physically attempt to stop him. Bonhoeffer was trying to explain why he...

Why apologetics?

Why apologetics?

Why would someone study apologetics? First off, do you even know what apologetics is? Well, it is not apologizing for your faith, your Christian faith. For years, as a Christian, I would on occasion hear the word apologetics and never really understood what it meant. To me it was one of those ‘theology’ words like hermeneutics, (the branch of knowledge that deals with interpretation, especially of the Bible or literary texts), or eschatology, (study of the end of things, or end times). Yes, I was a Christian, but those kinds of words, discussions that would use such language or...
