  • The Man Who Gave His Consent To Be Born February 16, 2019
    News came out a couple weeks ago about Raphael Samuel, a 27-year-old Indian man who’s reportedly suing his parents for bringing him into this world without his consent. “Life was imposed on me…. I want to make it a legal right for a child to sue a parent…. Ideally the parents should not have the […]

  • Who’s Interested in Apologetics and Why? New Research Reveals New Answers February 2, 2019
    Why are some Christians more interested in apologetics than others? Do you think you know the reasons? Probably. But only partly. The Spiritual Readiness Project has just released a research report this morning on What Motivates Interest In Apologetics? Read it online or download the printable version. Prepare to nod your head in agreement with some […]

  • How and How Not to Use Psychological Research Regarding Abortion and Other Social Issues January 26, 2019
    I was just looking at a Facebook battle over whether women tend to suffer emotional distress after an abortion. A secular psychiatrist said there’s no evidence; someone else insisted there was. As Christians we are committed to truth. We need to know what we’re talking about, to make sure we’re speaking truth, before we engage […]

  • Jesus Is Too Good To Be False January 17, 2019
    Groundbreaking “Lewis-esque” article now available again! Five years ago I published an article at Touchstone magazine that I titled “Too Good to be False,” and which they titled, “The Gospel Truth of Jesus.” Leading New Testament documents scholar Daniel Wallace paid me the compliment of calling it “Lewis-esque.” For quite a long time Touchstone displayed it for free on their website, […]

  • Skeptic Shermer Won’t Be Fooled Again; Gets Fooled Again January 10, 2019
    Let’s start by agreeing Shermer is right, as he opens this interview: Humans do seek out evidence that supports our beliefs. We do tend to cement our convictions more than we question them. He’s wrong, though, when he tells Stephen Colbert (at 1:40), “The only way to tell, really, the difference between these true patterns […]

  • Why 2019 Must Be Your Church’s Year to Wake Up, Get Equipped, and Reach Out January 2, 2019
    Happy New Year! It could be a great one, if we’ll finally wake up, get equipped, and reach out. That’s why I want to ask you to take thirty minutes to watch at least the first half of this video. Dr. Michael Brown and I were talking on his Line of Fire radio program about […]

  • Why Don’t Atheists Show More Curiosity About Their Own Beliefs? December 26, 2018
    We Christians get charged with believing things uncritically, not showing sufficient curiosity about other beliefs, or about how ours could be true. I’ve got the same sort of question for atheists.* Thinking Christian commenter Benjamin Cain supposes that the God Christians worship is a “human-like,” “monstrous,” “psychopathic,” “jealous, irrational, sadistic tyrant,” waving the equivalent of […]

  • Urgent Call to the Church: Wake Up and Take Action! December 20, 2018
    Western society is rapidly moving toward totalitarianism. I never would have thought it possible — yet it’s happening. Christianity in particular is under attack, at risk like never before in our part of the world. I’m not new to these issues, but a recent National Review article by John Daniel Davidson was still a kick […]

  • Sex, Bias, and the Design of Life December 13, 2018
    I’ve been reading the competition, so to speak — not that there really is any competition with Ed Feser. I don’t agree with everything he says, naturally, but still he’s untouchable as a top-notch thinker/blogger. Anyway, I want to pick up and run with something he wrote on sex and teleology just before Thanksgiving. His point […]

  • The Death of God, The Descent of Man, The Death of Humanity December 12, 2018
    Is there any figure in all Western history more ironic than Friedrich Nietzsche, he who proclaimed the death of God? In mock tragic voice, his Madman even pretended to mourn it: God is dead. God remains dead. And we have killed him. How shall we comfort ourselves, the murderers of all murderers? What was holiest […]
