Atheists Rejecting the Bible Due to OT Morality: Bound To Be a Bad Tradeoff

Atheists Rejecting the Bible Due to OT Morality: Bound To Be a Bad Tradeoff

Atheists rejecting the Bible due to OT morality are making a bad tradeoff. Yet they do it anyway. The other day an atheist online told me he could never follow a Bible with Old Testament laws like Exodus 21:7-11: “When a man sells his daughter as a slave, she shall not go out as the male slaves do. If she does not please her master, who has designated her for himself, then he shall let her be redeemed. He shall…

Street Epistemology: Deceit on the Street

Street Epistemology: Deceit on the Street

“We are growing. There are people who are joining and evaluating their beliefs and abandoning them.”  — Atheist movement leader Anthony Magnabosco* Three years ago, Peter Boghossian published A Manual for Creating Atheists. Today thousands of non-believers are rising up to study and use the methods he introduced, seeking to derail Christians from their beliefs. Earlier today I linked to a video showing the effect it had on a young campus Christian leader. The first 4 1/2 minutes are all…

You Can Help Equip Christians To Meet the Powerful New Challenges of the Day!

Are We Ready? Really? No, I don’t think we’re ready. But we can get there, with your help. Four years ago Sara and I moved on to other ministry after 34 years with Cru (Campus Crusade for Christ). Part of the reason is that I was seeing serious new spiritual battles arising in our culture, and I’d lost confidence we were preparing students sufficiently for those battles. Here’s an example. All you need to watch is the first 4 1/2 minutes….

The Overlooked Apologetic Significance of Two Very Bible Familiar Verses (Original Thinking Series)

The Overlooked Apologetic Significance of Two Very Bible Familiar Verses (Original Thinking Series)

There’s a powerful message hiding inside two very familiar verses in the Old Testament. That message is, These ancient Hebrews did some advanced thinking, centuries ahead of their time. Either that or they had help: God’s revelation. The first verse is really familiar: Genesis 1:1: “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” The second one comes close: Exodus 3:13-14a: “Then Moses said to God, If I come to the people of Israel and say to them, ˜The God of…

Okay, You’re Right: There’s No Evidence For Faith (Original Thinking Series)

Republished from January 29, 2014.  Part of the extended series Evidence for the Faith I thought I was about to launch into a series on evidence for the Christian faith. Recent discussion here tells me there’s one more preliminary step to take first, however. I haven’t yet defined just what it is I’m about to provide evidence for. You see, there’s one sense in which the New Atheists are right: there’s no evidence for faith. Except they’re only right to…
