The Kalam: Deeper Questions

Question I really enjoyed the guest article on the Kalam by Ronald Cram. I thought Dr. Craig’s debate with Carroll was a little troubling as some technical literature on cosmology was offered that I didn’t think Craig responded to as well as he could have. Cram’s article really helped to clarify some difficulties. I have one more question about the application … Continue reading The Kalam: Deeper Questions

The Kalam: An Overview & Defense

William Lane Craig is famous for resurrecting and defending the Kalam Cosmological Argument (KCA). The argument appeals to both philosophical and scientific evidence for the beginning of the universe. If the Kalam is sound, it seems to prove the existence of God. The question is raised: Is the argument sound given our modern, scientific understanding … Continue reading The Kalam: An Overview & Defense

A Logical Christmas Message

John 1:1-14 states “In the beginning was the Word (Logos), and the Word was with God and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made…. And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and … Continue reading A Logical Christmas Message

Introducing the Conscious Community: Part 2

In my last article, I laid out a context for what appears to be a growing problem in the black community. I discussed the lingering identity issue that seems to grip so many people of African descent and then illustrated how it poses a barrier to the spreading of the gospel as well as a … Continue reading Introducing the Conscious Community: Part 2

Introducing the Conscious Community: Part 1

We are all searching and seeking identity. For many it is mistakenly found in material objects, a sports team, money, or in human relationships. For African American folks, the identity crisis is coming in a virulent form that attacks their faith in Jesus Christ and their eternal lives. I have asked my colleague, Adam Coleman, to address this particular … Continue reading Introducing the Conscious Community: Part 1

Destroying the Kalam Cosmological Argument!!!!! – Round 2

This is the second round of Destroying the Kalam Cosmological Argument!!!!! Last time Tim Stratton successfully fended off four arguments that could have totally annihilated him!!! Can he refute another four objections or will he be completely owned?!?!? Let’s see!

Destroying the Kalam Cosmological Argument!!!!! – Round 1

The Internet is not subtle. When people attack others’ beliefs and ideas, they don’t just refute them; they utterly obliterate them!!!!! Because who wants a boring headline? “Christian debates atheist.” Lame! “Christian completely owns atheist!!!” “Apologist embarrassed by scientist!!!” That’s exciting! I’ve challenged my colleague, The FreeThinking Theist himself, Tim Stratton, to respond to 12 arguments spread over three rounds that completely destroy … Continue reading Destroying the Kalam Cosmological Argument!!!!! – Round 1

Logic Is Bedrock

All philosophical conversation, scientific hypotheses, mathematics, and conclusions based on the historical method entail the reality of logical laws. It would be impossible to engage in any of these disciplines if there were not logical absolutes providing parameters to help us reach conclusions that follow from given premises. Here are three fundamental Laws of Logic … Continue reading Logic Is Bedrock

Truth & Reality

What is truth? People have been asking this question for centuries. In fact, Pilate asked Jesus this very question over two thousand years ago (John 18:38). The answer to this intriguing question is quite simple: statements that are true correspond to reality. This raises another question: what is reality? The answer to this question is uncomplicated as well: … Continue reading Truth & Reality
