Time Proves God

I love to spend my time thinking about time. That might sound rather odd to most people; however, I have come to the conclusion that if we understand time correctly, then the rest of reality starts to fall into place. My interest in time theory began to exist when I began examining the beginning of … Continue reading Time Proves God

Presuppositions vs. Logical Reasoning (A Debate on the Best Apologetic Method)

Keith Thompson made a video taking Dr. William Lane Craig out of context. Sam Shamoun took the liberty of posting this video to Dr. Craig’s wall in an attempt to discredit him as an evangelical Christian apologist. In response to Thompson’s video (that Shamoun shared on Dr. Craig’s Facebook page), I said the following: “We must be … Continue reading Presuppositions vs. Logical Reasoning (A Debate on the Best Apologetic Method)

Can We Choose Our Beliefs?

Am I responsible for my beliefs or does something else impose them upon me? What do you believe? How do you know those beliefs you hold are any good (let alone true)? Many philosophers, scientists, and theologians today reject the idea that humans can ever make genuine choices. I freely think they are wrong as it sure seems as … Continue reading Can We Choose Our Beliefs?

Compatibilistic Free Will: Can you have your cake & eat it too?

I have spent the majority of my academic career contemplating free will. For over a decade I held the view of theological determinism and labeled myself as a “Calvinist.” For years I rejected the notion that humans were free to think or act in a libertarian sense. I found it interesting that when I began to … Continue reading Compatibilistic Free Will: Can you have your cake & eat it too?

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

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

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

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

True Love, Free Will, & The Logic of Hell

The well-known evangelical pastor, Rob Bell, has recently thrust his view of hell into the limelight with his bestseller, “Love Wins.”[1] This view of hell is called “Universalism,” because it is the view that there is universal salvation. That is to say, the advocate of universalism rejects the premise of eternal hell.[2] This typically results … Continue reading True Love, Free Will, & The Logic of Hell
