This is the work of demonic agents in allegiance with Satan, the opposer of God throughout history. I have never helped to organize youth, and while young myself I successfully avoided being organized. If the universe is not infinitely old, then it must have had a beginning.

That is both SHOCKING IGNORANCE and a bold display of distorting grace into a license to sin! A perusal of the apologetic writings of the Bible and the Fathers would show that the nature of the attacks changed in each generation, and that the reply had to be tailored to meet the needs of each generation. Here, perhaps no area of content is as useful as our own experience. No Christian can ever get saved and remain barren for the rest of their lives.

I’m a great fan of Aussie historian John Dickson. Catholic apologist Peter Kreeft said, “We are really, truly, objectively obligated to do good and avoid evil.” [53] In moral apologetics, the arguments for man’s sinfulness and man’s need for redemption are stressed. We try to ship items within 2 business days of the order being placed. For example, if one person claims a man robbed a bank, the evidence is relative weak. Whereas a theistic apologist appeals to creation to defend the claim there is a supreme Being who is the author, sustainer, governor, and judge of the universe, the Christian apologist appeals to historical events to defend the claims of the New Testament documents.

They would tease him about being able, as a married man, to have sex on demand, but he responded that through the use of NFP, he was required to abstain. As a lengthy interview with Marvin Olasky conducted at Patrick Henry College indicates, Champagne Butterfield embraces a view of her biography as exemplary for evangelicals and as an apologetic for what they (too) often call their “worldview”. Paulus Orosius wrote the first book advancing this perspective (History Against the Pagans), though the far more learned and influential work of this type was The City of God by Saint Augustine of Hippo (426).

Christian maturity is evidenced in obedience and love. All of the subsequent heretical movements represented deviations from this initial state. To avoid the obvious implications, naturalists have speculatively proposed there are an infinite number of universes, and we are lucky to live in the right one. Among the Puritan colonists of Massachusetts we find a professional interpreter of the Bible's teachings express a similar opinion: Puritan divine Cotton Mather, who is well known in connection with the Salem Witch Hunt of 1692, wrote: "It is possible that some of the [native] Americans may be the posterity of those Canaanites who, after the wars of Canaan, set up their pillars in Africa [sic]." [ 56 ] Moreover, in this case we have explicit evidence of what "the men who slaughtered the Indians" had in mind.

It is better for you to enter life maimed than with two hands to go into hell, where the fire never goes out. Its international scope and the range of participants – from top scholars to beginning apologists – makes it an invaluable way to keep a finger on the pulse of apologetics engagement with the culture.

He is one of a kind and I thank God for his life and work." "In admirably clear prose, Professor Craig presents important philosophical and historical issues relevant to Christian beliefs. Thomas Aquinas and the dogmatic definition of the First Vatican Council, affirms that it is a doctrine of the Roman Catholic Church that God's existence can in fact be rationally demonstrated.
