Bible Prophecy for Atheists (Part 2)

Atheists and Prophecy Now that we've addressed some of the flaws on the part of atheists, we must take a look at some legitimate concerns that atheists have specifically with prophecy. Imagine a book written several thousand years ago that outlines important world events in advance. Let's say the book claims that, at some point in history, nation X

Making God Known

Making God Known

The Church faces the challenge of modernity: America, along with much of the Western world, has become a post-Christian society. The reliability of Scripture, the existence of God, and other foundational truths of the Christian worldview are no longer broadly shared. Additionally, traditional authority structures have been replaced.   Whereas

Bible Prophecy for Atheists (Part 1)

For over ten years, I've been meaning to start an article series entitled, 'Bible Prophecy for Atheists' with the tagline, 'Helping atheists interpret Bible prophecy correctly so they can attempt to refute it intelligently.'

Can Science and Faith Co-Exist?

Since Charles Darwin first published his landmark work, On the Origin of Species, the fields of science and religion have continually clashed over the subject of origins. In recent decades, this long-standing controversy has escalated with the rise of so-called “new atheism,” championed collectively by Richard Dawkins, Daniel Dennett, Sam Harris an

Is Christianity an Evidence-Based Faith?

Is Christianity an Evidence-Based Faith?

One of the central arguments raised against the Christian worldview is that its core tenets are anti-intellectual. Critics argue that Christianity is based on faith in the Bible’s authenticity, rather than solid evidence in its favor. Does the Bible require us to surrender our intellect and common sense in order to accept its claims, or does it wel
