Arian Foster’s Atheism: Part 1

Every year around this time I start thinking about football. Although I never played football (I ran cross-country), since I grew up in Nebraska, football has always been my favorite sport to watch (I am also a huge NBA and MMA fan). This time of the year also means Fantasy Football and I begin to question who … Continue reading Arian Foster’s Atheism: Part 1

Stuff Atheists Say: You’re Almost an Atheist

We at FreeThinking Ministries are dedicated to answering the biggest objections to Christianity. We respect sincere skeptics and seekers and understand that everyone has doubts. We do too at times. If there’s a certain obstacle that is keeping you from faith, we want to help remove it. Responding to objections is mandatory to the Christ-follower: “always being prepared to … Continue reading Stuff Atheists Say: You’re Almost an Atheist

Natural Evil & Perfect Being Theology

Many atheists exclaim that the existence of natural evil leading to suffering (gratuitous or otherwise) is proof that God does not exist. Is this a logically valid objection? Here’s something to think about: (1) Evil is privation of good (metaphysical evil) (2) Absence of good is evil; to a degree that something is not perfect, … Continue reading Natural Evil & Perfect Being Theology

An Army of Straw Men

In December of 2014, after three years of hard work and long hours of study, my colleague, Timothy “Orthodox” Fox, and I finally graduated from Biola University with a couple of Master’s Degrees in Christian Apologetics (both of us graduated with highest honors)! This field of study focuses on logic, science, metaphysics, the historical method, philosophy, … Continue reading An Army of Straw Men

Interview feat. Tim Stratton

Recently, our own Tim Stratton was interviewed by Apologetics 105. (By the way, look up why his name ends in 105! It’s a great name for sure) The topic was the controversial Petals Drop series from a few months ago. Take a listen as Tim debriefs the experience, and answers some objections! Click the link … Continue reading Interview feat. Tim Stratton

Faith vs. Knowledge

Can Faith Ever Be Knowledge? This is the title and central question to the first chapter of Knowing Christ Today, by Dallas Willard.[1] The questions addressed in this précis will include the following: are Christians more than just “people of faith,” but are we also “people of knowledge?” What is the distinction, and does it even matter? … Continue reading Faith vs. Knowledge

You Don’t Understand the Old Testament

Unbelievers rip its verses out of textual and historical context. Christians use expired laws as bludgeons and others’ promises as life-verses. Just admit it: You don’t understand the Old Testament. And that’s okay. The OT writings are thousands of years old. They consist of various literary genres like history, poetry, and prophecy. And what about … Continue reading You Don’t Understand the Old Testament

Freethinking Atheists are Oxymorons

Atheists like to label themselves as “freethinkers.” However, if they happen to be right, about the non-existence of God, it follows that it is highly implausible that the immaterial aspect of humanity called a “soul” exists. This has led me to the conclusion that it is impossible for an atheist to really be a “free thinker!” … Continue reading Freethinking Atheists are Oxymorons

An OUGHT From An IS

Does objective truth apply to morality? This question has major ramifications depending on how you answer it, because it ultimately asks, “DOES GOD EXIST?” We can see this demonstrated through the use of logic in a deductive syllogism known as “The Moral Argument.”[1] Here it is: 1- If God does not exist, objective moral values … Continue reading An OUGHT From An IS

Evidence for God

A few weeks ago I wrote an article discussing why there isn’t more evidence for God’s existence. Why we don’t see Him floating around everywhere we go. But many an atheist will say there is no evidence whatsoever, therefore one should not believe in Him. But before we fall for this claim, we need to … Continue reading Evidence for God

The B-Theory of Time, Rationality, & Knowledge

In my last article I demonstrated that if a committed atheist rejects the logical conclusion of the Kalam Cosmological Argument by appealing to the B-theory of time, then they must also reject Darwinian evolution as an explanation of primate biological complexity.[1] It follows that if one thinks evolution is true, they must reject the B-theory of … Continue reading The B-Theory of Time, Rationality, & Knowledge

A World(view) of Pain

In my last article, I examined the problem of evil, asking if it would be possible for God to create a world without evil while allowing us to have free will. (Spoiler alert: No.) This week I want to look at pain and suffering through the lens of worldview. It’s easy to kick back and ask … Continue reading A World(view) of Pain

The Kalam, Evolution, & The B-Theory of Time

In my last article I discussed and explained one of my favorite arguments for the existence of God known as, the Kalam Cosmological Argument.[1] This argument is based on logic and utilizes science to confirm what we can logically prove. From the deductive conclusions of the Kalam, we can rationally infer the existence of God. … Continue reading The Kalam, Evolution, & The B-Theory of Time

Preventing the Problem of Evil

The #1 argument against God’s existence is probably the problem of evil. If an all-powerful, all-knowing, and all-loving God exists, why is there so much evil and suffering? It’s been asked (and responded to) for centuries and we’re still asking it. However, I want to narrow it down and look at it from a specific … Continue reading Preventing the Problem of Evil

Logic, Science, & God: The Kalam Cosmological Argument

One of my favorite arguments for God’s existence is called the Kalam Cosmological Argument (KCA). It consists of two premises that lead to a logically deductive conclusion. The syllogism goes as follows: 1- Whatever begins to exist has a cause. 2- The universe began to exist. 3- Therefore, the universe had a cause. Premise One … Continue reading Logic, Science, & God: The Kalam Cosmological Argument

Why God Hides

Where is God? If He exists, why is He so hard to find? This is known as the hiddenness of God. Believers and nonbelievers alike seek signs from God, either for guidance in their lives or for evidence of His existence. Why does He hide Himself from us?
