Confusing Bible Verses, Free Will, & Determinism (Part 2)

Question: Tim, I can’t say I admire your exegesis in your article Confusing Bible Verses, Free Will, & Determinism (Part 1), explaining the biblical texts. Within the context of John 6:44 it’s clear the key is not the word “can” but the statement as a whole that those who come to Jesus (believe in him) … Continue reading Confusing Bible Verses, Free Will, & Determinism (Part 2)

Confusing Bible Verses, Free Will, & Determinism (Part 1)

Question: Hey Tim, after reading pretty much everything on your website, it has reaffirmed my belief in free will. Although there are a few Bible verses that are troubling me… this may just be bad interpretation, but if you could explain how these play into the free will mindset, that would be great: John 6:44 … Continue reading Confusing Bible Verses, Free Will, & Determinism (Part 1)

“The Bible Trumps Logic!”

Like clockwork, whenever I offer logic-based arguments or syllogisms that deductively conclude a certain worldview is false (like this one), those who presuppose otherwise come out of the woodwork to express their disdain. It never ceases to amaze me how some are so blindly committed to a certain view that they reject opposing conclusions based on … Continue reading “The Bible Trumps Logic!”

Inerrancy Debate

One of the best professors I have ever had is Dr. Michael R. Licona. The two of us have become good friends since my time in his classroom and he continues to sharpen my thinking today. Recently I shared his written debate with skeptical scholar Bart Ehrman on social media. The debate was regarding the reliability of the Gospels (I … Continue reading Inerrancy Debate

Counter Intuitive Truths: Easing the Pain When Loved Ones Die

“Pain,” or “evil” is a tough part of life, but the reason no prominent philosopher defends the logical “problem of pain” any more (ie: that pain proves God doesn’t exist) is that we can’t prove that God couldn’t have purposes for it. Chaos Theory shows how incredibly subtle things can have dramatic and far-reaching ripple … Continue reading Counter Intuitive Truths: Easing the Pain When Loved Ones Die

Introducing the Consciousness 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 Consciousness Community: Part 2

Islam vs Atheism vs Jesus

Last Friday, I watched in utter horror the news footage of the murderous attacks committed by Islamic terrorists in Paris, France. I was reminded of the attacks against America fourteen years ago and sickened by the pure evil that still exists in our world today. I had a hard time getting to sleep that night as I prayed … Continue reading Islam vs Atheism vs Jesus

Aron Ra & 10 Bad Arguments for Atheism

It never ceases to amaze me how many internet atheists go to extreme, ignorant, and incoherent lengths to hold on to their faith in atheism. This is astonishing given all the evidence pointing out their worldview is probably false. Contrary to what you may read from atheists on social media today, we are living in … Continue reading Aron Ra & 10 Bad Arguments for Atheism
