Why Does God Hide Himself from Unbelievers

Why Does God Hide Himself from Unbelievers

Perhaps that is too bold of a claim. After all, the Psalmist reminds us that “The heavens declare the glory of God” (Psalm 19:1) and Paul argues that God’s “eternal power and divine nature have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made” (Romans 1:20).   Indeed, this is true now more than ever: we know the universe had a begin

Matthew 4: The Mechanics of Faith (Part 2)

When Christ encountered the temptations of Satan in the wilderness, He was merely participating in the physical manifestation of an invisible conflict which has raged unabated throughout the universe for the past 6,000 years.

Bible Prophecy for Atheists, Part 3: Prophecy 101

Prophecy 101 - Daniel Chapter 2 Because this article is only intended to be a brief introduction to Biblical prophecy in apologetics, it is far outside the present scope to cover the topic of Biblical prophecy in its entirety, a task which would require hundreds of pages. We will, however, briefly discuss chapters 2 and 7 of Daniel, as well as poin
