In this video, Detective J. Warner Wallace discusses a frequently raised objection to theism: if God made the universe, who made God? Whether it’s from an innocent child or a snide secularist who thinks he’s just debunked Christianity, this question can help us understand more about who God is. Wallace points out that this question becomes incoherent when you understand that God is uncreated. “Who made God?” God wasn’t made. He just is. Furthermore, Wallace… Read More →Who Made God?

This week’s episode of The Point by John Stonestreet shows the history of one of the most common pro-abortion arguments. Stonestreet cites Robert George, who reports that dehumanizing language, as seen in the words of abortion advocates, was a strategic maneuver used by other genocidal people, like the Nazis, to justify killing their subjects.

Earlier this week Detective J. Warner Wallace posted an important video on the resurrection of Jesus. Wallace says that after looking at the various theories that attempt to explain the facts surrounding Jesus’ death, only the resurrection hypothesis can account for all of the evidence.

Wallace challenges us to look at the facts and the theories to… Read More →Can We Trust the Resurrection?
