Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who

asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have.

1 Peter 3:15

When I first began interacting with LDS missionaries, I was struck by their reasons as to why they believed Mormonism to be true. I started doing some research and was shocked by what Joseph Smith, their founder, claimed had happened. There was no historical evidence to back any of what he said, and yet Mormo...

Now all of us can come to the Father through the same

Holy Spirit because of what Christ has done for us.

Ephesians 2:18 (NLT)

I am using the Cold-Case Christianity podcast, It's Narrow-Minded to Think Jesus is the Only Way to God, to write this post. Cold-case Christianity teaches Christians how to respond to skeptics and atheists. Suppose you are talking to a person about Jesus and they say, "...

In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.

Genesis 1:1

The debate over creation vs. evolution has been going on for a long time. Why? Because neither side can prove to the other they are right. Why not? Because both sides require faith, and your starting point will determine how you view the evidence. The evidence is the same for everyone. But not everyone sees the evidence in the same way.

EVOLUTION

I will be the fi...

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

John 3:16

Everyone has a worldview; what a person assumes to be true. Your worldview is how you interpret reality. It is a set of fundamental beliefs about life and death, God, the world, people, history, knowledge, and faith. Your worldview will determine how you...

Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.

John 8:32

I recently heard senators in the Kavanah hearing say, "It's her truth, and that's all that matters." I asked myself, "What does that mean? She (Christine Blasey Ford) is accusing Kavanah of rape and either he did it or he didn't." If her truth is different from his truth, someone's truth is not true! The truth of what hap...

Our God is in the heavens; He does whatever He pleases.

Psalm 115:3

There really is no satisfactory answer to the question of why God allows evil when you are in the middle of evil happening to you or your loved one, or when you remember past wrongs done. Maybe you have already worked through this question and don't struggle with why God would allow evil to exist in the world He created, but ke...

To him who is able to keep you from falling and to present you before

his glorious presence without fault and with great joy--to the only

God our Savior be glory, majesty, power and authority, through Jesus

Christ our Lord, before all ages, now and forevermore! Amen.

Jude 24-25

We live in a culture where we are taught that tolerance is the highest form of respect. To claim objective truth is a...

Your word, O LORD, is eternal, it stands firm.

Psalm 119:89

In the last post, we talked about what truth is and whether we can know it. We determined that it does indeed exist and can be known. When it comes to Christianity and the Bible, what are some ways we can be certain the Word of God is accurate? How can we know that what we are reading wasn't just made up or changed throughout the centuries? In short, what is the evidenc...

You will know the truth and the truth will set you free.

John 8:32

In our world today, you will find many people who no longer believe in absolute truth. Of course, most aren't talking about truth that can be seen. For example, if you are getting ready to cross a street, you will only cross if no cars are coming. You understand the fact that if you walk in front of a moving vehicle, you wi...
