There seems to be a grave misimpression among skeptics regarding the meaning of faith. It is true that Christianity is a faith; it is also true that faith is needed for salvation. However, suggesting that Christians blindly believe something to be true without any evidence is grossly mistaken. Faith is simply having confidence or trust […]Read More Verses About Blind Faith
A good friend of mine once told me that he learned a lot about God’s love when he finally had kids. I asked him, “Why is that?” What he told me was fascinating . . . He said, “When they’re born, you love them so much, for no reason; you realize that they’ve done nothing […]Read More God Became Man
The Doctrine of Original Sin is the idea that all humanity after Adam has been born sinners because of Adam’s sin. Whether this doctrine is true or not is irrelevant to the truth of Christianity . . . because one can still be an orthodox Christian without holding strictly to it. I say strictly because […]Read More What Is the Doctrine of Original Sin?
Here recently, I’ve noticed a lot of confusion around the deity of Christ and the Trinity, so I’m going to try my best to explain it biblically. Do I believe that Jesus was God? Yes! Do I believe that God is a Trinity? Yes! I think we have to answer these questions in the affirmative […]Read More The Holy Trinity Explained in the Bible
The so-called Euthyphro Dilemma has been said to present problems for many theists; however, I would argue that it really doesn’t present any problems at all, especially for the Christian theist. Consider this modified version of the dilemma: Is something good because God wills it, or does He will it because it’s good? At first […]Read More Euthyphro Dilemma Crash Course
Unfortunately, there seems to exist many people who think that the God of the Bible shows favoritism; they think He’s racist, sexist, what have you (we’ve heard it all). However, I’m here to tell you that those claims are simply outrageous (pray for me). For the love of everything holy, please do not listen to […]Read More Does God Show Favoritism?
Bury me smilin’ on YouTube asks, “If Adam and Eve had Cain and Abel, then how did Adam and Eve’s grandchildren come about?” Well, thank you for your question, but the answer can easily be found in the Genesis account: “Cain made love to his wife, and she became pregnant and gave birth to Enoch” […]Read More Who Was Cain’s Wife?
Predestination is the idea that God has predestined everything that comes to pass, including those who will be saved. In my opinion, there seems to be two errors concerning this doctrine: 1) People deny predestination, or 2) People accept predestination and deny free-will. Both of these errors are unbiblical; a sound Christian theology will affirm […]Read More What Is Predestination?
I did a YouTube video, not long ago, about what is meant by “true Israel”, where I concluded that “true Israel” is all believers who have been saved by grace through faith. The idea that God’s chosen people is the nation Israel is simply mistaken, and Paul makes this crystal clear in the book of […]Read More Grafted Into the Olive Tree
On one of my YouTube videos, a viewer by the name of “Bernard Da Costa” asked me the following question: “Chris, would you rape and (or) murder someone if you didn’t believe in God?” My obvious response was, “No, Bernard, of course not!” This comment was made on a video I did titled “Morality Without […]Read More Does Morality Depend on Religion?
