Recently there have been a series of high-profile Christian leaders who have walked away from the Church or were involved in scandals. Understandably, this has shaken many Christians; especially those with a connection to these leaders. It has also been used by atheist and critics in an attempt to attack the truth of Christianity. BothContinue reading “When Spiritual Leaders Fail”
Simply believing that something is true doesn’t necessarily mean you trust it. It’s the same with Christianity. Let’s look at the difference between “belief that” and “belief in”.
When discussing the divinity of Jesus, critics will often put forward the idea that Jesus never made the claim “I am God”. And they are right, He never said those specific words, but is that the whole story or could there be more to it?
The questions for this post are; can these accounts be accepted as accurate eyewitness accounts of the life of Jesus, the growth of the early Church, and early Christology among believers?

The remaining six we simply stated likely dates of writing. This will be a shorter post to wrap up the likely dating of the remaining books.

Some of the most accepted dates related to the Bible center on the Apostle Paul, his missionary travels, and his epistles. Although there is disagreement on some of the exact years they are generally accepted within a small window of a few years. For the sake of simplicity, we will use either the accepted year or the later of the date ranges

Dr. Baucham is probably the most knowledgeable and eloquent person speaking out about this poison and it’s threat to the Church.

“What are you reading?” “A book on Christian apologetics.” “Apologetics! I will never apologize for my faith in Christ.” “No, no. Apologetics. It’s the art and science of defending Christianity through arguments based on science, philosophy, and history.” “So you start fights about Christianity!?” “No, intellectual arguments based on information from science, philosophy, and historyContinue reading “Why Apologetics is Important for Christians”
