Historical Reasons Intelligent People Believe In Jesus
Jesus Vs. Horus.

In a conversation with a good friend, I was asked about the times in the old testament where God kills men and women. I didn't have a good response at the time, and possibly still don't. After thinking about it for a while, though, this is what seemed appropriate to say. God only gives life […]

15 Reasons Intelligent People Believe In Jesus

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. It would be like trying to apply the Pythagorean theorem to a poem.  History uses the evidentiary method, not the scientific method. The evidentiary […]

Who Will Deliver Me?

A fingerprint is said to be unique. It’s been estimated that the chances that 2 people will have the same fingerprint is about 1 in 64 Billion. That’s why fingerprints are used in criminal cases because it’s nearly certain that if a matching fingerprint is at the crime scene, you were there too.  The fingerprint […]

Is Jesus as trustworthy as a fingerprint?

Some have claimed that the myth of Jesus was borrowed from other pagan mythological figures like Horus, Mithra, Osiris, Buddha, etc etc etc. This argument is banking on the fact that most people won’t go read about Horus, Mithra, Osiris, or any of the other mythological claims. The so-called similarities are laughable. I’ll post some links […]

Is Jesus' Story Really Just A Retelling Of The Egyptian god Horus?
How The Space Station Proves There Is A God.

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 copy can go […]

Is Religion Really The #1 Cause Of War?

About ten years ago or so I decided to try to write a book (the first one I had ever written.) It was going to be a philosophy book... Although I am not a philosopher, I had a purpose for the book. I wanted it to be a large-scale thought examination; A mental Science experiment. […]

The Leap From God's Existence to Christianity

 Atheists often claim that Jesus never existed in history. If that is true, then we should expect to find at least some support of the Christ Myth Theory somewhere in history. So is there support for the Christ Myth Theory in ancient history? Nope! In fact, it took about 1800 years for anyone to argue […]

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 being […]

Why Jesus And Not Another?

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 […]

Can A Christian Quit?

The unique thing about Christianity is that it was so simple to disprove.  Although most religions make claims that are designed to be impossible to refute, not so for Christianity.  Christianity’s primary event, the resurrection, would have been simple to disprove if it were fabricated.  Although it should have been simple, it was never disproved, because… A bunch […]

Christianity Should Have Been Simple To Disprove

Continuing our series entitled Popular Objects, we take a look at the objection of translation. See what effect being translated multiple times has on the biblical message. 

Popular Objections: Translated Too Many Times

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 […]

Was the Bible Translated Too Many Times To Trust?

Many claims that the Bible has been translated too many times to be trusted. Learn why that claim demonstrates a misunderstanding of how the Bible is transmitted to us through the ages.

Popular objections to the New Testament, and what you should know about them. 1. It’s not scientifically provenThis is an untenable objection because for the scientific method to work the event in question must be observable, measurable, and repeatable.

7 Popular Objections to the New Testament
Don't Ask Jesus Into Your Heart To Be Saved.

Many Christians think that if a Christian turns away from the faith (even true faith) they will lose their salvation. Many others believe that turning away proves that the faith was never true in the first place. Find out why both of those options aren't right in this short video.

Did Jesus Really Really Really Exist?

I was asked this great question from a young man in South Texas. “Jesus knew the Old Testament. Could he have believed? Or was he spending his first 30 years crafting a story of the returned king that would fit in the Old Testament?" This is a fascinating idea. I’ve heard it asked another way.  “If […]

Could Jesus Intentionally Fulfill Prophecy?

Jesus was verified dead by Roman executioners. A second verification of him being deceased came when the body was taken down from the cross, and wrapped for burial. The tomb was sealed with a Roman seal, which would cost the breaker his life. The soldiers would be held accountable for letting the seal be broken, […]

The Resurrection

The international space station has an incredibly advanced life support and environmental control system. Without these vital systems working in concert, the astronauts would be turned into blood-boiled brain-dead space sicles.  Each of these vital systems took thousands of highly trained engineers, decades to conceive, design, build, test, and refine. Despite the billions of dollars, […]

The Space Station That Proves God Exists

Aristotle and many who followed him saw that the universe was in motion. He often called this energy that he recognized as “eternal motion.” He once said, “Did motion come into existence, not having existed previously, and will it again, in a similar manner, cease to be so that there will be no motion?”⁠[1] In […]

Practical Reasons To Believe In Jesus

How do you know that God exists? The teleological argument claims that nature is so complex it must have had a designer. The cosmological argument claims cause-and-effect as proof that the universe must have had a first cause. The ontological argument claims that a maximally good God could not exist only in thought but in […]

Evidence For God's Existence

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 […]

Beutiful Lines

Like many of you, we view our entertainment through streaming services like Disney+, Amazon Prime, Apple TV+, and Netflix. No doubt, you've seen how hard these platforms are pushing a new promiscuous morality. Even children's shows and movies have become permeated by homosexual themes. Recently Disney+ had a homosexual short film in a featured spot […]

Tech Companies Want to Make Your Kids Buddhist.

In the first century things were easier. There were eye witnesses of Jesus available to speak with. I am convinced that virtually all of Israel, around 2 million people in that time, witnessed Jesus with their own eyes. It was easier because most people from that region knew someone who had been healed, or seen […]

Why Trust The Bible?
Is Jesus As Reliable As A Fingerprint?

Atheists often claim that there is no evidence that The God of the Bible exists.  The problem is that the statement is simply untrue.  The bible is packed with statements that are verifiable in the modern world. We will cover 10 of them.  In Genesis 17 God makes an agreement with the Jews that would […]

Is There Evidence For God?

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 […]

Is it a sin to read other religion's books?
Christianity Should Be Simple To Disprove.

  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 […]

Is Christianity Testable?

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 the Israelites […]

Stoning for picking up sticks? Really?

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 […]

I recently received a good question. QUESTION: I have a question I can't find an answer to. Maybe you would have some kind of an answer. I literally have only one question. My faith doesn't waver. I just don't understand one thing - If God is all-knowing, and if he loves us so much, then […]

Is There Evidence For Atheism?

I had a good conversation with a friend last night. He asked a really good question.

I have a few quick ideas on […]

Many people say that the monks changed the Bible, or even made it up entirely. This is a ridiculous claim when you consider the history involved. This short video explains why.

Did Monks Change the Bible?

"How do you know the Gospels are reliable?  The gospels are Greco-Roman-style biographies. These historical documents are eyewitness accounts of mostly public events. They were written shortly after the events they describe and were circulated during the lifetime of other eyewitnesses. The Gospels survived the scrutiny of the thousands who saw Jesus first hand, and […]

Atheists often claim that there is no evidence that the God of the bible exists. HOWEVER, THE bible is Full of statements that are verifiable in the modern world.   In Genesis 17 God makes an agreement with the jews that he says will last forever.  If the Jews ceased to exist, It would cast doubt on God’s existence.  Virtually all ancient […]

God's Greatest Evidence Is His People

The Jesus Myth hypothesis: For itching ears only. This is the idea that Jesus never existed in history but was made up centuries later. Supposedly his attributes were borrowed from other pagan religions. So... yeah. I'd like to respond to that. This is an overview approach, I'll leave the minutia to the scholars.One of the […]

My father-in-law grew up on a farm in Nebraska. As most who know him can attest, he isn't afraid to get his hands dirty, or his whole body for that matter. When I first married his daughter, I had to get used to his do-it-yourself style. Often he's made outrageous sounding claims that I've strongly […]

It's Jesus' Job

Every political campaign cycle features a round of endorsements. The candidates rally for the support of famous and influential people. A candidate for Congress who receives the endorsement of his peers is admirable; but one who receives the endorsement of the president and other high offices is sure to have a considerable advantage. Did you […]

John the Baptist

Jesus is known as a miracle worker. Even those who know little to nothing about Him know at least that. Did He just like to shock and awe, or was there some purpose behind His actions? Nothing Jesus did was without purpose. In attempting to convince a group that He was the Messiah, He said: […]

For The Sake Of Signs

We learn a lot about a person from the way they face death. Some are fearful and trembling at the end. Others are calm and at peace. I remember watching my grandmother in the last weeks of her life. She faced death with a determined peace and certainty. My grandfather, who survived her by about […]

Proof On The Cross

Though all of Jesus' miraculous works were fantastic, none is greater than His resurrection. On the Sunday after the terrible events of crucifixion Friday, Jesus came out of His grave. This was the most important moment in all of human history. Years later Paul said:  For he [God] has set a day when he will […]

Proof From The Grave

Not only had John the Baptist, and Jesus’ miracles testified about the Messiah’s identity, but so too did God the Father. In an attempt to persuade the religious leaders that He was the Messiah, Jesus reminded them that the Father had given an audible endorsement of His Son. He said: “If it were just Me […]

The Father's Testimony

Jesus gives a fourth category of evidence to prove His authenticity when He says:  “If it were just Me talking about Myself, My testimony wouldn't be valid. John announced the truth about Me. The works the Father gave Me to do, prove I'm the real thing. The Father Himself has testified about Me. The Scriptures […]

Messianic Prophecy

In the first-century testimony of Christ was more accessible. Eyewitnesses of Jesus were available to whom you could go. I am convinced that virtually all of Israel, around 2 million people in that time, witnessed Jesus with their own eyes. It was easier then because most people from that region knew someone who had been […]

Jesus as a Prophet

Though it is Jesus’ job to fully convince anyone who hasn’t yet believed by providing ample evidence, there is quite a bit one can do to put themselves in the right frame of mind. In a pursuit to believe it’s easy to miss out on a powerful tool: Prayer. James wrote:  If any of you […]
