Does Christianity have an academic hearsay problem?

By jreighley - Last updated: Wednesday, October 17, 2012

The other night at our church bible study,  the speaker made a point that I have heard many times before.  It is a very compelling point, that really seems to be one of these “Checkmate” kind of “eureka” slam dunk proofs for Christ being obviously the  messiah, so long as you believe the academic analysis.

The Anti-Thesis of today’s America can be found in the 10th commandment  “Thou shall not covet”.

As a result, we rarely talk about the merits of any […]

One of the annoyances I have been complaining about is our tendency as evangelicals to leave God as a proposition. In this clip, Francis Chan demonstrates what the exact opposite of that looks like.  

Another example of what happens when we preach darwinism but fail to heed it.

Somebody lifted my Debit card and placed a bunch of unauthorized charges on it. I of course cancelled the card and the bank is sending me a new one. Today I opened the mail and recieved a new PIN for the yet unrecieved Debit card. I looked at it for a millisecond or ten and […]
