Sean also points out that only one road, Christianity, does in fact lead to God, because it is the only road that solves the universal problem of sin. Jesus came to pay the price for our… Read More →Are All Religious Roads Created Equal?

[Spoiler Alert: This article discusses major plot points from the films Wonder Woman and Man of Steel]. Following on the heels of Christopher Nolan’s critically acclaimed Dark Knight Trilogy, DC’s extended universe films haven’t exactly had fans or critics raving.

Breaking from Marvel’s… Read More →We’re All to Blame

Oh Death, Where is Your Sting?

Death, where is your sting?

In this thought-provoking article, Detective J. Warner Wallace highlights one of the practical out-workings of belief in Christianity. If we truly accept the Christian picture of eternity, that we have an immaterial soul that will carry on forever in relationship with God, it makes sense that we would not fear death nearly as much as those who believe in no afterlife at all. It is certainly understandable that we would be afraid of the unknown… Read More →Oh Death, Where is Your Sting?

Why Don’t Christians do Miracles Today?

Why Don't Christians do Miracles Today?

At Stand to Reason, Tim Barnett’s short video provides excellent advice for interpreting John 14. Tim explains how if we look at the rest of the New Testament and the early church, we will find that no one actually believed all Christians were supposed to perform miracles. Instead, Tim argues, it makes more sense to interpret Jesus’ words to mean that we, believers in Christ, would do “greater works” than he did in the sense that… Read More →Why Don’t Christians do Miracles Today?
