In the cultural climate of the 21st century unbelievers need to hear the gospel message as much as ever before. However, unlike the world of the mid 20th century, atheists, agnostics, and proponents of false forms of the faith are becoming more evangelistic for their causes. Students, workers and even ministers are being challenged to accept that modern science, philosophy and mere human desire dictate that they should live a life devoid of Christian sacrifice. For this reason, Trinity Crusades for Christ exists. We are happy to assist God’s people by scheduling evangelistic events, Christian defense conferences and personal evangelism training weeks. It is our desire to see the lost embrace the life that Christ died that they might have, and see Christians grow in their knowledge of how to preach and defend that message. If you would like to schedule an event in your community, contact us now. We are excited to work with you.
Mr. Atheist thinks these are verses Christians would rather skip. Some probably would, but in this episode, we walk through them and explain why context is key. Mr. Atheist seems unfamiliar with the ancient near-eastern contexts and languages that inform the proper translations and understandings of several passages on his list.
My friend Jon, over at Whaddoyoumeme, made a video a while back that provided a philosophical argument for God's existence. Simply put, The Messianic Manic replied, arguing that the nature of time served as a defeater to much of what Jon said. Are you ready to find out if he was right? Then LETTTTT'SSSS GGGOOOOOOOO!!!!
"Atheism is not a worldview!" At least, that's what a lot of atheists say. Are they right? We'll break it down in this episode, and expose a major mistake that has caused some people too illogically jump ships from Christianity to atheism.
I've made response videos to 24 atheists over the past few months. The stereotype doesn't always fit! Not all atheist youtube channels are the same, and the differences are important. I've categorized what I think are the four fundamental approaches that currently exist. Understanding these types will, I think, lead to better conversations.
Michael Jones of Inspiring Philosophy joins us for a live interview on a new argument for God's existence. He calls it "The Digital Physics Argument," and it's as interesting and provocative an approach as any I've ever heard. Are you merely in God's version of the Matrix? We also discuss Michael's debate history, and which debates he's most pleased with. He explains his personal debate preparation strategy, and we wrap it all up with a discussion of Genesis!
For many atheists, the seemingly unfair nature of hell is too hard to swallow. On the other hand, a lot of them continue to fear the possibility of hell even years after rejecting Christianity. It just might be that much of this has to do with misunderstandings about the nature of God, and what Christians actually believe about the ultimate state of the unbeliever. In this episode, we'll take a look at what atheists are saying, and lay out the Christian positions on the issue.
Lawrence Krauss is well known for claiming that the universe could come into existence from nothing. What some might not realize is that he thinks meaning, morality, and even spirituality came with it! With a brief excursus on the thinking of Neil Degrasse Tyson, I respond to some of the famous scientist's most common claims.
It is with great reverence that I respond to the late great anti-theist, Christopher Hitchens. There is much to commend about the man, even from a Christian perspective. Naturally, there is much that he said to which believers may object. In this video, I deconstruct his typical case against theism with an eye toward charity. I recognize that though he likely would not have responded to a youtube video, at least in life he could have. He cannot respond now, and I admit that this is a bit unfair. Nevertheless, I believe he would approve of the endeavor. It is out of respect for the man that I take his ideas seriously, and criticize them straightforwardly.
A live presentation of the case for the Christian God , at First Baptist Church of Fairhope. Dr. Eric Hankins, (Senior Pastor) hosted this night of apologetics with Braxton Hunter.
Does apologetics work, or is it usually a new love interest, friend, or some catastrophic life experience that brings people to faith in Christ? Perhaps it's a more complex question than that.
