Happy New Year!
At the start of every new year, there's a tradition practiced by many people of telling a big, fat lie called a “new year's resolution.” I say it's a lie because the failure rate on these resolutions is abysmal. Many don't even make it past the first week. Most don't...

God Must Exist: Truth Telling and Lying
Lying and Moral Apologetics by Mike Robinson Lying is a sin - and God loathes liars. We tell lies, yet it is easy to show that lying is immoral (Epictetus). Every person has an incentive to deceive others for personal gain. But, until recently, no generation has practiced deception to...

Christmas: A Perfect Portrayal Of God’s Love & Sacrifice
Christians commemorate three major historical events surrounding the Lord Jesus: Christmas (birth), Good Friday (death) and Easter (resurrection). Although Jesus is the central figure, God’s love and sacrifice is the common denominator of these three events. But Christians often tend to overlook God’s love and sacrifice while celebrating Christmas. The...

Breaking News: Charles Darwin was an evolutionist!
In the years I've spent engaged in apologetics, one of the most frustrating things I've had to put up with are the word games employed by unbelievers. “Evolution” doesn't mean humans are descended from apes. An “atheist” doesn't deny there's a God. What most people call a “theory” isn't really...

Follow @Apologetics_Qts If feelings don’t inform faith, then what does? Biblical faith is informed by evidence. Jesus said, “Even though you do not believe me, believe the works” (John 10:38). What works is He talking about? The blind are seeing. The lame are walking. The deaf are hearing. The dead...

IntroductionOne of the more convincing reasons to believe that atheism is false comes from man's desire for life to have purpose. If there is no designer behind the universe, life in general, and our individual lives in particular, have no ultimate purpose, no goal to guide our decisions, no finish...

One of the first popular apologetics books released was Josh McDowell's Evidence That Demands a Verdict in 1972. But much has changed in the forty-five years since that initial publishing.
