HOW DO WE KNOW WHICH BOOKS BELONG IN THE BIBLE? The Question of Canonicity

We have certainty about the canonicity of the books in the Old Testament, which Jesus referred to as “all the Scriptures”, and those in the New Testament. Three crucial passages from the Bible itself indicate that books of the New Testament were already considered Scripture before the New Testament was even completed. Books of the New Testament were recognized as Scripture immediately upon publication because apostles themselves designated these books as Scripture.

DNA – Designed, Not Accidental

Over the many years since I graduated from medical school, the knowledge of how the complex and unique DNA molecule functions in the cell has increased greatly.  Much of what is now basic knowledge of molecular genetics was only touched on when I was in high school and medical school.  The human genome had not yet been fully decoded.  The more I learn about this amazing molecule, the more convinced I am of the impossibility that it evolved by random chance under the guiding hand of natural selection.

HOW “PROVING” ONE OF DARWIN’S THEORIES ACTUALLY DISCREDITS THE THEORY

At this difficult time, a laugh is sorely needed, and one has been provided for us by evolutionary scientists at Cambridge University. The headlines are breathless and triumphant: One of Darwin’s evolution theories finally proved by Cambridge researcher (Phys Org)[1] Scientists ‘prove Darwin’s survival of the fittest theory’ (ITV)[2] One of Darwin’s Evolutionary Theories Has Been Proved by Scientists: ‘We Are Standing on the Shoulders of Giants’ (Newsweek)[3]

DOES JESUS MISQUOTE THE OLD TESTAMENT? Creation Ministries International (CMI) Undermines Inerrancy Again

It is late in the year for a new, winning entrant into the “Most Ironic Statement of the Year” contest, but Creation Ministries International (CMI) duo of Lita Cosner and Robert Carter seem to have done it; it is difficult to imagine that anything in the last few days of 2019 will top this one: No one should be ridiculed for not being able to do good textual analysis—unless they claim to be doing good textual analysis.[1] We …

SALVATION BY GRACE ALONE THROUGH FAITH ALONE: What about James 2:24?

Prima facie, James 2:24 seems to say that works are needed for salvation. However, careful exegesis of the original Greek text shows that James is not, in fact, saying “that a man is justified by works, and not by faith only,” but that a man is justified by acts of commitment, and not by intellectual belief alone.

THE THREE-HEADED MONSTER AND THE EVANGELICAL BETRAYAL OF THE BIBLE: Exposing the Major Weapons Levied Against the Trustworthiness of the Bible

The Bible has come under attack by liberal scholars using three main weapons: historical criticism, textual criticism, and Darwinism. The acceptance by evangelical scholars of the liberal paradigm assumptions has led to an erosion of belief in inerrancy and undermines the case for Christianity.

THE RESURRECTION ACCOUNTS: “Incompatible Contradictions” or Coherent History?

And if Christ is not risen, then our preaching is empty and your faith is also empty. Yes, and we are found false witnesses of God, because we have testified of God that He raised up Christ, whom He did not raise up—if in fact the dead do not rise. For if the dead do not rise, then Christ is not risen. And if Christ is not risen, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins! Then also those who have …

IS LUKE WRONG ABOUT THE DATE OF JESUS’ BIRTH? A Case Study in How to Do Serious Evangelical Apologetics (Part 2)

Luke says Jesus was born while Quirinius was governing Syria, but Matthew says Jesus was born before Herod’s death. There is no contradiction. Herod died in 1 BC, not 4 BC. The only testimony that Quirinius began to govern Syria in AD 6 is from Josephus. Luke is by far the superior historian to Josephus.

YES, JESUS REALLY DID EXIST: Refuting Maclean’s Magazine’s Latest Madness

The article is the same farrago of unsubstantiated allegations, bald assertions, and refusal to consider relevant evidence that always characterized this sort of article.

STILL WAITING FOR AN INTELLIGENT DEFENCE OF ATHEISM – The Latest Failure: Heather Mallick in the Toronto Star

One must wonder whether an intelligent defence of atheism is even possible.  Most attempts are nothing more than bald assertions, usually sprinkled liberally with insults and couched in bad manners.  Even the best attempts are invariably riddled with errors of fact and logic.  If an intelligent defence of atheism has been made, I have yet to see it. The latest such buffoonery is Heather Mallick’s “It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s atheism,” published in the Toronto Star on September 24, 2012 (p. A23).  It begins with a bald assertion followed by …

A PRIMER ON ENTROPY (THE SECOND LAW OF THERMODYNAMICS)

The Second Law of Thermodynamics is an insurmountable obstacle to the spontaneous formation of highly complex organic molecules. Evolutionists cannot explain away the problem by appealing to the earth being an open system. Inputting free energy into a system speeds up the rate of entropy increase.

THE “SONS OF GOD” AND THE “DAUGHTERS OF MEN”: A Case Study in the Importance of Careful Exegesis

The nephilim in Genesis 6:1-4 were not the offspring of angels and human females. Jesus proves His bodily resurrection by appeal to the fact that spirits do not have flesh and bone. This proof is destroyed if angels could conjure up physical bodies for themselves so they could have conjugal relations.
