Anti-Intellectualism in the American Church is Not a Spiritual Gift

trojan-horse  Over the past few months, even years, I have been wrestling with a gnawing issue on why the church is not amenable to apologetics. This is evidenced by the overwhelming anti-intellectualism that has been plaguing the church ever since 1859 when Darwin wrote his On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life as well as other influences.

This post is by no means going to be exhaustive, and I will be referring to others who have cogently written on this same subject. We share in this burden and are seeking ways to show that “ignorance” about why we believe is not a spiritual gift, nor is it found in Scripture.[1] Continue Reading »

Can You Test the Existence of God Like You Can Test Air?

The other day I received an email in our ministry inbox from an anti-theist. The reason I say anti-theist is because the person would be considered a lightweight in contrast to folks like Michael Ruse, John Gray, Alex Rosenberg, Kai Neilsen, or Brian Lieter.  
 
The purpose for emailing me was to take me on about something that I said in the Truth Matters program I was on back in March of this year. As it has been the case ever since I stopped allowing comments on my YouTube video, I get these humorous accusations from anti-theists telling me that I am dishonest and afraid of the dialogue.

The real reason is that I don’t like having to follow the venomous vitriolic rabbit trail seeking someone who wants to have a civil exchange. This is the reason why I have an email at the end of the videos, so as to give an opportunity for the viewer to contact us. By the way, I always welcome comments (so long as they abide by our comment policy) at the bottom or sending an email. I promise to keep it cordial.

If God Made the Universe then Who Made God?

Have you everbeen involved in a conversation with a skeptical co-worker or a friend who has asked you this question: “If God made the universe then who made God?” Let’s get to the real issue of this objection for God’s existence by looking a three of understandings for answering it.

First, this objection makes a categorical mistake. It would be like asking, “How does your favorite song smell?” It just does not make sense, does it? This objection is often asked by those who are fans of the famed atheist, Bertrand Russell who once said, “It everything must have a cause then God must have a cause.”  But everything does not need to have a cause.

Engaging the Religion Worshiping at the Altar of the “Unknown God”


“So Paul stood in the midst of the Areopagus and said, Men of Athens. I observe you are very religious in all respects. For while I was passing through and examining the object of your worship, I also found an altar with this inscription, ‘TO AN UNKNOWN GOD.’ Therefore what you worship in ignorance, this I proclaim to you.”
~ Acts 17:22-23

I have been spending some of my devotional time in Acts 17 and interacting with Paul’s encounter with the Greek philosophers on Mars Hill. Many of you know that this chapter in Acts is Paul’s Gospel polemic to the Greek intellect of his day, the Stoics and the Epicureans. Continue Reading »
