Why Should I Believe Christianity? by James N. Anderson

Have you read the Quran?

Given the recent attention to the horrible actions taking place in Paris by Muslims, I thought I would write this post on something that I have seen come up a few times before. “Irreligious” people who tar religion, including Christianity, with the same brush and brand it all wrong and evil and the source of many problems,  appear to come out in droves when events like what have taken place recently occur. If you want proof- check YouTube. No doubt a Christian would be in a position to respond to criticisms that come from such people, and ultimately, the truth …

Fred Phelps is dead.

Phelps is best known for heading up the Westboro Baptist Church (WBC). The WBC is infamous for preaching a message of hatred toward homosexuals (“God Hates Fags”) and picketing the funerals of United States military.

The depth of our sin is no match for the transforming power of the blood of Christ. Freedom from bondage to sin is found in Him. Do not hope in yourself, but hope in Christ.

Do not hope in homosexuality. Homosexuality cannot free you from your desire or your pain. Homosexuality has no power to satisfy or heal you. Pursuing homosexual desires will lead …

Cornelius Van Til The Covenant Apologist

“To bring out the interrelatedness of God’s revelation in Scripture with his revelation

in nature, we speak first of the necessity of natural revelation. It is customary to speak of

the necessity of supernatural revelation because of the fact that there is no revelation of

grace in nature. However, it is equally true that the revelation of grace would operate in a

vacuum if it did not operate in nature as revealing God. The supernatural can never be

recognized for what it is unless the natural is recognized for what it is: both must be

recognized in the light of …
