The Dessert Cart Paradox — A “Gaping Hole in Evolutionary Theory”

Darwin's 'natural selection' is a favorite idea of philosophical naturalists - people who believe the physical world is all that exists. The problems begin when trying to explain how ANYTHING exists. As Doug Axe clearly explains in this video (5:38), evolutionary biology can't account for the origin of things. "The power of invention resides elsewhere."

Rachel Gilson is same-sex attracted and a Bible-believing Christian

We all want things we should not want. Each of us has to struggle with the decision either to indulge unhealthy desires or to obey God. However, not every struggle carries the same weight. Rachel Gilson's struggle was about relationships: oneness, love, sex, and romance... and faithfulness.

Atheists in Praise of Christianity?

Historians have traditionally acknowledged the impact of Judaism and Christianity on western culture. That's no surprise. What IS surprising is the modern trend of atheists defending biblical values. Skeptics like Tom Holland, Richard Dawkins, and Jordan Peterson are now willing to admit that the values of Christianity are not only good, but necessary for human flourishing.

Original Sin or Original Blessing?

Mormons and New-Agers have something in common: they often consider the Fall of Man to be a positive development for humanity, rather than a negative one. This contradicts what we read in the Bible, of course. Alisa Childers outlines the problems with this view.

Autobiography as Apologetic

It's important to tell our own stories. When we explain that we were lost and then were found, people listen. While personal testimonies aren't necessarily evidence that Christianity is true, they are powerful nonetheless. Here Douglas Groothuis tells his own story.

The Modern Evangelical Church is Sick. Here’s Where it Fell Apart

It seems like there's a new scandal in the American church every week. We tend to dismiss them as anomalies... good leaders who blew it. What if these moral failures, which seem to be more common than we'd like to admit, are actually baked-in results of the recipes we're using to grow churches, rather than growing God's Kingdom?

Why I Am a Christian (David Wood, Former Atheist’s Conversion Testimony)

David Wood's personal testimony explains his path from believing that dogs and cats ruled the world to understanding that there must be a Creator, to whom we are morally accountable. Along the way, he tried to murder his father, to out-fast a Christian friend, and debunk the Bible. Video, 34:05

Out of a Far Country: a Gay Son’s Journey to God, a Broken Mother’s Search for Hope

Christopher Yuan is a Christian speaker, author, and professor of Bible at Moody Bible Institute. In this video he shares how God rescued him from a life of promiscuous sex and drug dealing, sent him to prison, then set him free... both personally, relationally, and spiritually. Video, 21:10

Can Morality Be Based in Our “Selfish” Evolutionary Past?

Philosophical naturalists believe that the physical universe is all that exists. As a result, they reject the idea of God, and the idea that morality - our sense of right and wrong, and what ought to be - comes from God. Can morality be explained in purely physical terms?

There is No Truth

Some like to say that there is no absolute truth. It’s a fun mental exercise, but nobody – absolutely nobody – lives that way. We all act as though what we believe is true. You do, and so do I… all day, every day. Try a little experiment: when someone tells you that there is no absolute truth, ask them, “Is that absolutely true?”

CSNTM’s Brand New Manuscript Viewer

A Tale of Two Worldviews

A worldview is a person's attempt to combine what they believe is true into a single narrative. There are a number of competing worldviews, but the most common pair in the western world is that of naturalism vs creationism. There are inherent flaws in naturalism that make it unworkable.

Prayer and Fasting for Discipling Relationships

How Evangelism is Kind of Like Fishing

Jesus told Simon and Andrew that He would make them 'fishers of men.' Because they were fishermen, Jesus' words carried more meaning than if they had been tailors, or football players. Here, Tim Challies details a few of the more significant ideas behind fishing for people.

Death of Moses in Deut. 34 and Authorship

Moses is believed to have written the Pentateuch... that is, the first five books of the Old Testament. Would that include the account of his death and burial found in Deuteronomy 34? Some suggest that Moses prophesied his own death.

The Demise of the Artifact Hypothesis

A primary critique of Darwinian evolution is that there are large gaps in the fossil record. We don't see the transitional forms - animals in the middle of changing from one kind to another - that evolutionists claim to have existed. Günter Bechly says that this isn't a minor problem for Darwin... it's a fatal one. Audio, 16:57

What was the Physical Appearance of the Serpent Prior to the Fall?

The Bible describes the devil, our spiritual enemy, in a number of ways. The most well-known is the serpent, who was cursed by God to crawl on his belly for deceiving Eve. What was he like before the curse? Video, 5:44

Donall and Conall Learn that Jesus isn’t Divine

Jehovah's Witnesses teach that Jesus was God's first creation, and not God Himself. This is rightly considered heresy, of course... but can you explain why they're wrong about the interpretation of John 1:1, where - they claim - Jesus is "a" god and not "the" God? Video, 5:30

Understanding Salvation with Bruxy and Nina!

The 50 Countries Where It’s Most Dangerous to Follow Jesus in 2021

Jesus warned us: “If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first. If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you."
