Learn Biblical Greek in a Flash: Self-Study, Home School, Small Group Bible Studies

Do you want your students or children to know enough Greek to tap into the original Biblical language but don’t want to dedicate months upon months or years upon years to do it? The ‘Biblical Greek in a Flash’ program is designed for teachers, small groups, Bible studies, and homeschooling parents as well as those who want to self-study. It is structured so that within just 3 to 8 weeks the learner will have enough knowledge to read and pronounce the Greek words they see in a Greek New Testament and then use reference tools to find out what those words mean.

Colbert Interviews Secular Lobbyist on Atheism, Sex, And Other Things

Stephen Colbert is not someone I watch regularly but when I do I usually find him hilarious. This interview follows the Democratic Convention’s refusal to allow this secular lobbyist group to participate in their faith forum. As interesting as it would be to opine on the Democratic attempt to claim the ‘high ground’ of religion I’ll pass at this time. This is all comedy of course and I can only imagine that the poor lady has had all of her best insights spliced out… but as an apologist it was still quite fun to watch… Maybe I could get Mr. Colbert to run a guest column here at Sntjohnny.com 🙂

Why did God Create the Devil Knowing He’d Be Naughty and other Free Will

Here is a second clip from a Q and A that I gave this summer. There are at least three questions here and they all surround the notion of free will, why God would tolerate bad things, why he doesn’t act, and the like. Enjoy.

Why we need to Start from Scratch in Abortion and Atheism without resorting to Presuppositionalism

One might think then that this is simply a question of shifting one’s presuppositions and evidence has nothing to do with it. Certainly assumptions have a lot to do with the matter. I think my point is that the question of abortion belongs in a different class than the question of atheism or theism. After one has decided where they stand regarding God, conclusions about abortion more or less follow. That doesn’t mean that one’s stand regarding God needs to rest only on assumptions!

Why Christians Don’t Believe in Pixies, Fairies, Ancient Legends

It is entirely plausible, according to the Christian worldview, for there to be other agents besides human agents. Since, however, the Christian proceeds based on evidence rather than presupposition, he might dismiss a recorded instance of a miracle, say, in the Odyssey, not because he knows it can’t be real because the event is so old, but simply because the attestation of that event is very weak. In other words, the reasons why a Christian might reject such things are not the same as the atheist’s.

Abortion, politics, apologetics: Observations on the conservative and liberal cultures

There is no dispute here that life begins at conception. The philosophical question has to do with when we believe that the entity is a person, and consequently entitled to the rights we ascribe to persons. There is no non-arbitrary objective measure other than conception by which to say “before there wasn’t, but now there is.” There is no place in the stages of pregnancy where one can say “Aha! Now it is a person!”
