If God created the universe, who created God?

One of the men attending our early Sunday morning apologetic class, Anthony, shared with me that someone actually asked him this specific question. We started watching the six week Greg Koukl DVD series on Tactics. At the end of the 2nd session, I made eight statements, or claims, that I wanted those attending to think about. The second one on my list was, “If God created the universe, who created God?” So when Anthony heard that one, it reminded him of someone asking him that question. This question has been around for a long time. What some of you may find interesting is that the response,...

43 Questions Christians can’t answer

How is it that the bible explains the earth to be 6,000 to 8,000 years old when we know that dinosaur bones are at least 65 million years old? This isn’t the only example of our planet’s age by any means, either. This is one of those ‘in house’ discussions that even educated and intelligent Christians do not agree on. Pucket is also guilty of a strawman fallacy, by misrepresenting or fabricating someone’s position on an issue, so it is easier to attack. Pucket, who asked the above question, and 49 other questions, lump all Christians as ‘Young Earthers, when many...

Counting Hairs

You’re impressed with the fact that He knows the number of hairs on our heads? It seems hard to imagine that God would really know the number of hairs on our heads, especially when you think about the number of people in the rapidly growing population of our world. At the moment I am typing these words the population of our world is seven billion, one hundred and ninety four million, four hundred and twenty five thousand. The average person has from one hundred thousand, to one hundred and fifty thousand hairs on their head. That is a lot of hairs to keep track of. If I was a god, I...

God’s Not Dead

God’s Not Dead

The News Boys have a popular song titled God’s Not Dead, in response to the German Philosopher Nietzsche who proclaimed “God is dead.” Time magazine asked the question in 1966, “Is God Dead?” The article was written by John Elson, who passed away in 2009 and now has an answer to that question. This article and cover gave Time magazine its best sales in 20 years, and prompted a response that resulted in 3500 letters to the editor. Supposedly, over 300 interviews were conducted for this article, and Time had over 30 correspondents work on it. Mr. Elson wrote in his article,...

The Miracle of Existence

Boys do it naturally, sometimes by the early age of three or four. Girls, not so much; they are too busy making conversation to worry about the Doppler effect. Ever watch girls play with dolls or stuffed animals? They (the animals or dolls) are chatting about this or that, and the girls tilt the Barbies or animals a bit left, then a bit right, as they converse about the latest news, or chat about what their plans are for the day. The tone of their voices rise and fall during the conversation. I know this, after having raised three lovely girls. My boy though, was too busy setting up armies...
