Dirt and Whiteboards

I had a conversation recently with a friend that does not believe Jesus is the only way. He believes that many religions offer many paths that will lead to heaven or some nirvana afterlife. We batted around ideas and thoughts for about 40 minutes, and we both enjoyed the conversation. He was not defensive in the least but was more than willing to hear what I had to say on the matter, so I asked questions trying to understand his views and reasons. The atheist or agnostic will fall into one of two categories concerning their unbelief: Reasons and/or Causes. If someone has...

Never Lose Sight

Monday, the day after Christmas I had an unexpected experience. I was at Summerville High School running around the track and walking up and down the bleachers getting in a light aerobic workout. Was feeling slightly guilty, (on par with driving 60 mph in a 55 mph zone) from being so sedentary for a few days and eating my share of Christmas treats. After 30 minutes of walking and jogging I headed back from the car with some chest pains. I attributed it to the cold air, something I have experienced before. I drove home, but the pains would not go away, and after 20 minutes my daughters...

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...

If I was born in Iraq…

If I was born in Iraq…

I would probably be a Muslim. If I was born in India, I would probably be a Hindu. If I was born in Israel, I would probably be Jewish. If I was born in China, I would probably be a Buddhist. So? What follows from that line of thinking? You may have heard of this reason to dismiss your religious beliefs. Yes, it is probably true, if I was born in Iraq I would most likely be a Muslim. So what? If I was born on Mars, I would be a Martian, but how that relates to the truth of Martianism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, or Buddhism is completely irrelevant. This is known as the genetic fallacy...

Doubt

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...
