I received this question recently: Is it really necessary for an isolated people group to hear the gospel? I remember sitting through a sermon a long time ago about accountability and God will judge each person accordingly. It made sense that God would not condemn a person if he/she has never heard the gospel or […]
I got this question from an Atheist friend recently. I thought it was a really good question and worth an official response. Question: “You don’t believe in Zeus, I’m assuming. Why do you think he was created, why did people believe in him, and why don’t they anymore?” Answer: Actually, I do believe in Zeus. So you […]
Question: What’s up with the stoning for picking up sticks in Numbers 15? Answer: Good question. Seems severe right? The previous and following paragraphs in Numbers 15 give a pretty good indication as to what’s going on. Let’s first look at the story so we have a good understanding of the situation. While […]
Question: Did God command genocide in the Old Testament? Answer: Nope. Here’s why: Israel was only instructed to annihilate the Canaanites who remained in Israel Deuteronomy 7:1-2 says When the Lord your God brings you into the land you are entering to possess and drives out before you many nations… and […]
Question: Why was Israel under the law? And why don’t we follow the law today? Answer: There are a few reasons. Let’s take a look. Deuteronomy 11 answers the questions of why: “Observe therefore all the commands I am giving you today, so that you may have the strength to go in and take over […]
We got this fantastic question recently. Hey Lucas I had another question. Do you know any scriptures on reading other religions books? 2 John 10-11 says don’t bid anyone Godspeed who has another doctrine. Is it still okay to accept a copy of the Book Of Mormon even if you already know it to be a […]
A question from a reader: There are various commands in the Bible to “love your enemy” in Matthew and Romans. However, there are other times when justice is called for (example: conquest for stubborn Canaanites, capital punishment in Law). I know that justice is an act of love. However, how do we treat the “enemy” […]
THE SHORT ANSWER: We should believe the bible because it shows us how to receive eternal life. It validates that claim through, historical accuracy, fulfilled prophecy, supernatural events, and eye witness testimony. In the first century things were easier. There were eye witnesses of Jesus available to speak with. I am convinced that virtually all […]
A subscriber writes: I’m currently in online school and the classes all teach evolution to be true. I’m not sure what I believe about that and how it would correspond with my Christian faith. I was curious what you thought in that area because secular evolution is forced down my throat at school. My security […]
Question: Is it possible for a Believer to Commit the unforgivable sin? Answer: The unforgivable sin is widely misunderstood. Let’s explore. I had a Bible professor who said something very profound once… well I’m sure she said profound things all the time, but I remember this one. A student was trying to prove a point; […]
The short answer is, “no.” There are a few studies on war that will help support that very resounding no. Charles Phillips and Alan Axelrod released a three volume set in 2008 called Encyclopedia of Wars. Just so you know, I don’t have a copy of these books. That’s mainly because even a second hand […]
A reader recently claimed that it would be wrong for God to force a Christian-Turned-Atheist into Heaven because it would violate his or her free will. This raises an interesting question. This is my response to that claim. If you’ve believed in Jesus for salvation then these verses apply to you. “I give eternal life […]
I posted a response to an atheist’s question about a Christian who had become an Atheist. I made the claim that, “if someone believes in Jesus for eternal life, nothing can ever take their eternal life away. Not even if they become an atheist.” So, this elicited a response from a number of my atheist […]
My daughter woke up crying at 6:30AM. After my wife got her back to sleep I laid in bed for another few minutes but I couldn’t sleep. I had something running through my head. It was this question, “can a Christian become an atheist and still be saved.” I felt like this would be a […]
I got this comment from an anonymous reader. ‘…when he and I were talking about your site and the christian turned atheist question on your blog. His argument was that someone who completely proclaims atheism and denies god would not have ever been filled with the holy spirit in the first place. ’ Before we […]
We received this question not long ago. Question: Why is your god so evil? If he is all powerful, why does he do nothing to stop 5000 children under the age of five from dying every single day, just from dirty water alone? Because he is evil. He inflicts suffering upon innocents. Why would you ever worship a […]
Rule # 1: Shut up! That’s right. Stick your balled-up fist in your face hole if you have to, but most importantly stop talking. And yes, I’m saying you should START by STOPPING the incessant blather. In most cases, everything you will say to them has already been said to them multiple times. We’re not […]
If you haven’t seen them yet, you will. A new rash of articles have hit the web claiming that a new DNA study has disproven what the Bible says about the fate of the Canaanites. But did it really? Nope. Here’s the scoop. The study took DNA samples from five ancient corpses in the region […]
Popular objections to the New Testament, and what you should know about them. 1. It’s not scientifically proven This is an untenable objection because: For the scientific method to work the event in question must be observable, measurable, and repeatable. History is not measurable or repeatable, so the scientific method does not apply to historical events.
What happens when science and religion agree? Let’s imagine you have a bicycle. The purpose of this bike is to move you toward a better understand of God. One of the wheels on the bicycle is called scripture, the other is called science. Could you ride the bike with only one wheel? Well, yes you […]
