Demanding Proof

21 – A disciple of Christ, Thomas, was a skeptic. He walked with Jesus during his time on earth and physically witnessed with his own eyes certain miracles performed by him such as raising Lazarus from the dead and so forth. However, after the crucifixion, Jesus supposedly rose three days later and Thomas did not believe it was truly him despite being told, prior to the incident by Jesus, that he would rise again in three days. Thomas required physical proof. Jesus allowed him to touch him and feel the wounds in his body to offer that proof to Thomas. Why doesn’t god extend the same proof to...

Should True Seekers Start with Christianity?

Why should seekers of the true religion start with Christianity? Let’s face it, even the most basic and fundamental beliefs of the world’s major religions have insurmountable differences that make them incompatible insofar as the claim some of you may have heard, ‘All religions are basically the same’. Christianity believes in one God, (Monotheistic), Hinduism teaches there are millions of gods, (Polytheistic), Buddhism does not believe in a god, (Atheistic).

I can’t wait for Evolution

You can see that flight simulators have evolved nicely in the past 20 years. So much so that you can’t tell the difference between a real photo of the instrument panel, and one in a game. Games evolve. Cars evolve. Even animals evolve in what we see called micro-evolution, or small changes over time. Darwin’s famous finches are an example of small changes over time. But there is another example of evolution called macro-evolution that is another matter entirely. Evolution. For some parents, this is the dreadful word that comes with junior high or high school, and initiates your...

Doubt

Doubt. If Christian is honest, that is something we all have had in our Christian walk. Despite my readings in the past couple years on apologetics, which does not mean apologizing for our faith, but defending our faith, doubt still creeps in. William Lane Craig shares a story in his book, Hard Questions, Real Answers about a student who came up to him after class one day and said, “How come everything you say confirms what my pastor taught?” Somewhat taken aback by this comment Dr. Craig replied, “Why shouldn’t it?” The questioning student replied, “Well, all the other professors in my...
