Jesus’ Resurrection Has Implications for Your Life

A few decades ago, a lot of scholarly research was dedicated to finding the answer to the question, “Did Jesus really rise from the dead?”  Now, it seems as if everyone in this postmodern, relative society is not asking, “Did he?” but rather, “So what?” Let’s answer this practically: If a man died from a brutal execution — so much so that his body and face were hardly recognizable as human — and then rose from the dead with a healed and restored body, then this man must be more than just a man.  “So what?” you ask.  Well, if … Continue reading Jesus’ Resurrection Has Implications for Your Life

Some arguments are better than others, and this one is just bad.

Check out the video below of Douglas Wilson and Christopher Hitchens, stars of the new documentary Collision, appearing on the Joy Behar show. During the video, Behar asked Wilson if he really believed “that all those animals were on the ark” with Noah.  That puzzles me.  Out of all the things that happened in the Bible (like say, God becoming a Man, being killed, and rising from the dead) she wants to know about animals on a boat?  Seriously? That’s not the most miraculous and mind-boggling thing you’ll read in the Bible. Hitchens comes across as a bitter, arrogant, angry, … Continue reading Some arguments are better than others, and this one is just bad.

Truth is Truth is Truth

From the urban philosopher Lecrae: Man, see some folks say, “All truth is relative, it just depends on what you believe.” You know, “Hey man, ain’t no way to know for sure who God is or what’s really true.” But that means you believe your own statement: that there’s no way to know what’s really true. You’re saying that that statement is true. You’re killing yourself. If what’s true for you is true for you, and what’s true for me is true for me, what if my truth says your’s is a lie? Is it still true? Come on man! … Continue reading Truth is Truth is Truth

It’s Not About Your Intentions

People who oppose the gospel do not have good intentions.  Their intentions, in fact, are evil because they come out of an evil heart (Prov. 27:19; Mark 7:14-23; Titus 1:15).  Their “intentions” oppose the only way that we can obtain salvation, namely through Jesus. How do non-believers oppose the only true way of salvation?  They do it through self-righteous asceticism by abstaining from foods, drink, or other things (Col. 2:21-23; 1 Tim. 4:1-4; Titus 1:10-16).  Or they do it through self-righteous relativism by doing whatever they want (Rom. 1:21-25; 1 Cor. 6:9-11).   Likewise, Christians can fall into these sinful traps, … Continue reading It’s Not About Your Intentions
