To Be or Not to Be – That is the Question

“Honest questions deserve honest answers, but dishonest questions don’t deserve any answers” is a bit of advice passed on to us by our friend and co-founder of Jews for Jesus, the late Jahn Moskowitz. It came at the end of a story he was relaying about a conversation he had with a Jewish atheist who raised an objection to Christianity. Would God reject the man’s “good” mother when she died if she didn’t receive the … Continue reading

To Their Own Destruction

Out of concern that the First Century believers were susceptible to deception, the Apostle Peter warned in chapter 3 of his second epistle to be careful of those who distort Scripture “…to their own destruction.” The ones Peter warns about here seem to be a different type than the false prophets in chapter two or the mockers in the early part of chapter three. In verse14-16 he writes: Therefore, beloved, since you look for these … Continue reading

Initially, science was based on the belief that God existed and created … Continue reading

According to comedian, serial tweeter, and sci-fi author, Patrick S. Tomlinson, this one argument is like holy water to pro-life vampires. You know, if we were vampires. Whenever abortion comes up, I have a question I’ve been asking for ten … Continue reading

Conversation with a self-described atheist

I have recently been involved in an online conversation with a self-described atheist. He raised some questions that I thought might be of interest to our readers. He writes: I just find it fascinating how each of the more significant divisions of Christianity consider all the other ones so wrong on some pretty major things.  I was curious why you thought that was. Certainly you have experience with having differences in more minor details with … Continue reading
