What’s Hell Like?

“What’s hell like?” my oldest child asked me, pretty much destroying every cheery thought I’d been having as I drove the road to home. Kids are full of questions. I answered as simply as I could, which [fortunately] is a habit for me. “It’s a bad place. It’s full of flames, because it’s a place of punishment;…

Defending Christ’s Resurrection

Many people flat-out object to the idea that Jesus actually rose from the dead. Of those who admit that He historically existed and that he physically died, they propose various theories for the belief that Jesus rose from the grave. The four basic arguments against the Resurrection are the Grave Robber Lie, the Wrong Tomb…

Defending Christ’s Death

It is COMPLETELY WRONG to say that I think atheists or any other non-Christians would agree with me if they would just open up their eyes and see reason.  I do not believe reason could infect someone [profoundly affect someone] so as to compel them to see my position as truth. I don’t think that…

The Crucifixion and the Issue of Blame

Who art thou, O great mountain? Before Zerubbabel thou shalt become a plain; and he shall bring forth the headstone of it with shoutings, crying, Grace, grace unto it. Zechariah 4:7 The so-called “Christ-killers” As long as I’ve been a Christian I have noticed that some are still preoccupied with the issue of whom to…
