The Growth of the Early Church: A Testimony Believed. Martyrs for what they saw not what they believed.

The Growth of the Early Church: A Testimony Believed. This essay was written in response to challenges to demonstrate that the early Christians died because of their testimony, and their unwillingness to reject their testimony. In other words, they believed that they had actually seen certain events, and chose to die rather than deny what […]

Evolutionary Origins of Religion:

As I was skimming the web this evening I came across this site reviewing Hitchen’s “God is not Great.” I didn’t spend much time on the blog so I don’t know the gent’s background.  I’m going to comment on a few things he said as a springboard since I have heard it any number of […]

DOH, one last reply on Watson and the Professor

He posted another reply and I’m not going to respond to it in full.  I saw this nonsense, though: if he weren’t so motivated to spread the slanderous insinuation that non-Christians have no ethics. This shows, I think, that the Doc isn’t really reading my entries because I am not arguing that non-Christians have no […]

Antony Flew Under Attack by Atheists

This has been the case for awhile, now, but atheists all over are not giving Flew his due.  This site has a great list of taunts. He’s losing/lost his mind. He’s in it for the money. He’s afraid of death. Etc. If this is not ad hominem, I don’t know what is.  If the challenge […]

Found another site mentioning the Christian post article

http://theexpositor.wordpress.com/2007/08/01/church-is-producing-atheists/ I really wish the Christian post had put in a link to my website. The article is generating a fair amount of interest and reaction, but without a direct way to get in touch with me, a fuller explanation on my solution to the mess will be hard to find. And here is another, […]

Responses to my Assertions are Starting

I recently made the claim that it is the Christian church itself producing atheists. I thought this guy did a good job of nailing the high points: http://cuanas.blogspot.com/2007/07/is-christian-church-producing-atheists.html He also mentions the situation in Europe, which I think is a foreshadowing of what America may look like in a few decades if we’re not acting […]

Not just any time. The right time.

When I was a religion teacher I was often asked why God didn’t perform miracles today as often as he did in the Christian Scriptures. The question is a natural one. As one starts from Genesis and proceeds through Revelation, there are a litany of miraculous events happening one after the other. However, it is […]

It’s true, that’s why. Not because it’s useful.

I’ve been plugging away on this thread here on my forum and the conversation has turned towards the question of objective morality and atheism. As happens so often, the atheists in question seem to think my point is that they would not be moral apart from God when in fact my point is that they […]

Is religion dangerous? Continued thoughts…

This particular question has been coming up fairly often of late and has even been treated on my forum (www.sntjohnny.com/smf) and in an audio debate (hosted somewhere on this domain). When the question is carefully phrased we are helped greatly in answering it because there are some senses in which we could agree that yes, […]

Authority and Transcendence

Right now on TV they are having a special on the infamous Milgram experiment (link) which reminded me of a post I had in mind to write a couple of days ago.  The Milgram’s experiment puts to shame and disgrace the asinine, arrogant, and smug assertions of atheists that, “With or without religion, you would […]

Christian Education and Apologetics

This is under discussion on my forum, here. My own story is that I went through 12 years of Christian education and went to a Christian university to be a Christian pastor and promptly was reduced to atheism or something very close to it.  When I returned to Christianity it was with a desire to […]

Outright Lies, illiteracy, or just bad scholarship?

If you read my last blog entry, you saw that I went after Dawkins for unquestioningly accepting information he has been handed without investigating to see if the information is legit. One can wonder if his whole worldview is based on information handed to him pre-biased, and one can wonder further whether or not we […]

Omnipotence, Omniscience, Etc.

I’m always amazed at how the same things come up over and over again from atheists. The funny thing is that they always think they’re bringing some new revelation, as though Christians and theists in general haven’t been hearing- and answering- these things for thousands of years.  Sparking this blog is this thread and the […]

Per fidem enim ambulamus et non per speciem…

That’s out of Jerome’s Latin translation of the New Testament. The translation is called the ‘Vulgate.’ It means, as near as I can tell, “We walk by faith, not by sight,” and comes out of 2 Corinthians 5:7 of the Christian Scriptures. What is it about ‘faith’ that sets people’s teeth on edge? Some people […]
