“Should Christians fret and fear over financial provision, and personal safety? Jesus did two miracles in John 6, which describe the abundance of God’s provision and protection for His children. We would do well to learn these lessons.”
“Many think that belief in God and the gospel depends on reasons and evidence. Jesus, however, shows that in spite of five irrefutable lines of evidence, people still rejected Him. He then exposes the real heart of why people don’t believe.”
Does the Trinity really matter? Or is it a complicated, theoretical teaching with no practical benefit? When Jesus taught in John 5, He explained that the very meaning of “God” is at stake if we do not understand the ideas of the tri-une God.
Many people spend their lives in passivity, waiting for life to happen to them. The lame man healed by the pool of Bethesda illustrates how we should respond to the voice of God, instead of wasting our lives merely waiting for life to happen to us.
Why doesn’t God dazzle us with sky-writing and unmistakable miracles? Why does God tend to speak softly, and expect us to trust His Word, rather than signs? We see the answer in how Jesus healed a nobleman’s son in John 4
When people object to the Christian faith, they often raise the objection of why God allows so much evil in the world. Having already considered some incomplete answers to this problem, we consider six satisfying truths from Scripture that help us tackle this difficult topic.
“When defending the Christian faith, Christians are often asked, “How could a good God allow so much evil in the world?” How should Christians answer the problem of evil? In this programme, we consider ten weak or incomplete answers to the problem of evil.”
Christianity rises and falls on one historical event: the resurrection of Jesus Christ. If this event did not take place, then Christianity cannot be true. If it did take place, it must be true, and its exclusive claims are also true.
“Why should we accept the 66 books of the Bible as being the only inspired books? Who decided that, and how did they decide that? The topic of ‘canonicity’ is important for defending the Christian faith.”
Should we try to prove God’s existence? Or should we assume God’s existence and see what follows? Christians that debate non-believers should understand the pros and cons of trying to prove God’s existence to others
“Should Christians be the ones on the back-foot when it comes to explaining our faith? What if Christians expected non-believers to give an account for their worldview? We might find that the non-Christian is secretly borrowing from a Christian worldview to make his worldview work.”
Some people think that those rejecting God need proofs and evidences to persuade them. On the contrary: the unbeliever needs to be confronted with how much he borrows from Christianity in order to make his own rejection of God seem plausible
“Since apologetics is defending the Christian faith, giving proofs for the faith, and going on the offense against unbelieving thoughts, it is important to understand how the Bible describes knowledge, knowing, and truth. If we misunderstand how unbelievers think and reason, we may be in the position of using music…
“How do we know Christianity is true? How do we answer objections to the faith? How can we demonstrate that false philosophies are misleading? We begin a series on apologetics: the defence and vindication of Christianity.”
The Bible alone” sounds like the right way to approach the truth. And it is. However, when studying the Bible for good doctrine, we end up using several other sources or tools to rightly understand the Bible. We consider several of those
Why are there so many churches? Why are there so many denominations? Some of the answer has to do with how people do theology, and in particular, how they use the Bible. We consider a good theological method for weighing texts together.
Does doctrine divide? Actually, everyone is a theologian, and everyone needs theology. Find out why
