No "Lost" Books

  Has archaeology unearthed ancient biblical texts that cast doubt on the current canon of Scripture?  Is it possible that Christians don’t have the true Bible?

I'd Like to Have an Argument, Please.

  A solid argument can be built just like a solid house:  walls first, then the roof.  Here's a building plan, plus three ways arguments collapse.     I want to teach you how to assess a basic argument.  How can you know if an argument is a good one or not?

Doing What Comes Naturally

  Is homosexuality “natural”?  Do gays have a “right” to adopt children?       Rosie O’Donnell is the latest celebrity to go public as a homosexual and take the stand as a champion of gay adoption rights.  Her challenge has reignited the controversy about rights and wrongs based on what is “natural.”

Christianity's Real Record

  It’s easy to characterize religion as a blood-thirsty enterprise, a perpetrator of witch hunts, crusades, and religious jihad.  But has Christianity been the cause of such evil, or does the truth turn out to be just the opposite?

An Audience of One

  As ambassadors for Christ, we often never know the true impact of our efforts.  Yet every once in a while we get a glimpse....       Radio is an odd medium because it is hard to know what kind of impact we’re having.  For the most part, the communication is all one way.  I sit in the studio and talk.  Three lines are flashing, callers waiting.  My screener and engineer watch through the glass as I speak.  An audience of five.

The Confusing Moral Logic of ESCR

  The embryonic stem cell research  debate is remarkable because neither side—pro-life or pro-abortion—seems to understand the moral logic of its views.       Presumably, people who are pro-life hold their views for a reason and are not just emoting.  The same could be said of pro-choicers.  I’ve long suspected that’s not always the case, though.  The recent debate about embryonic stem cell research (ESCR) confirms my doubts.

Evil as Evidence for God

  As a Christian ambassador, your biggest challenge may be making sense of the problem of evil.  When you’re able to explain that, surprisingly, evil is actually evidence for God, you will have vastly improved your skill as a diplomat for the King.  You’ll also have taken an important step yourself in cultivating a more sensible faith.

In the Presence of Hostile Witnesses

A faithful ambassador does not retreat in the face of opposition.  Instead, he’s at least willing to listen to what the other side has to say.  It’s one of the most effective ways to strengthen your understanding of the truth and cultivate sensible faith.

When Compromising Is Not a Compromise

        Eight years ago an election-year slogan circulated among Christians that sparked considerable controversy:  "It's a sin to vote for Clinton."  The same slogan returned with vigor four years later.       This year’s election slogan is different.  Bill Clinton is not on the ballot and his successor, Al Gore, offers little enticement to Evangelicals.  Something else is at stake, though, captured in a new slogan:  “It’s wrong to vote for anyone who is not consistently pro-life.”

Deity of Christ: Case Closed

Understanding the Trinity may be impossible, but proving the Trinity is not especially difficult.  You don't need to master theology and philosophy.  All you need is one irrefutable argument.  Here it is. Deity of Christ:  Case Closed
