Can One Use Reason to Make Moral Decisions?

As it is with migrating posts to Word Press, I have the opportunity to rework or refresh old posts from my previous provider.  This one is definitely one that I needed to rework and reconstruct from a few years ago. It is a question that is very relevant and you see if come up in online forums in various ways.

The question comes from a few years ago, having the privilege of speaking to a Christian student group at Christopher Newport University (CNU), where the topic for the evening was “The Problem of Evil and Suffering.” Much of material that I shared in that talk can be found in a piece I wrote on “The Three Faces of Evil and the Christian Response.” Continue reading “Can One Use Reason to Make Moral Decisions?”

Is Absolute Truth Compromised by Time or Temperature?

cropped-robgoodgravatar.jpgby Rob Lundberg

This week has been a busy week getting back in to the normal day in and day out schedule (not one that I desire but a necessary evil right now) after a wonderful weekend sharing with the folks at Iglesia Cristo La Roca. One of the questions that came up on the first night of the question and answer sessions had to do with the topic I shared that evening.  That topic was Are Truth and Morals Absolute or Relative?   Continue reading “Is Absolute Truth Compromised by Time or Temperature?”

Why Does the Bible Include Certain Books & Not Others?

robgoodgravatarby Rob Lundberg

Some time ago, a good friend on (and outside of) Facebook posted an apologetics video on my wall summarizing evidence for the resurrection of Jesus. The video, as one might guess sparked all kinds of conversation with one of his friends.  This friend committed the red herring fallacy when raising the issue about the issue of which books were chosen to be included in the Bible. Though the main topic was the resurrection, I am taking the off topic question to task in this post.  Continue reading “Why Does the Bible Include Certain Books & Not Others?”

Ministry Event, July 13-14 Apologetics Boot Camp

Truth Be Told ABC
Join us for the Apologetics Boot Camp, July 13-14 2018

Have you ever wondered how to answer objections like:

  • Where do truth and morals come from and are they absolute or relative?
  •  
  • Do all religions say the same thing and lead the same place when life is done?
  • Is the Bible credible and is it the Word of God?
  • Why is Christianity true? and
  • If God exists, then why is there evil in the world?

Do you have another question that might be plaguing you about the Christian faith, that you have wanted to get an answer for?

On Friday July 13th (7:30 PM) and Saturday July 14th (9:00 AM) we would like to cordially invited you to an event that is in conjunction with this ministry and the student ministry team at Iglesia Pentecostal Cristo la Roca called, “The Apologetics Boot Camp.”  This is a FREE event, and it is the first of its kind in the Fredericksburg area. 

The event is open to all, but the target audience is ranging from Middle Schoolers on up to Young Adults (college). If you do not fall that range, do not let that prohibit you from attending.  With 75-88% of our kids walking away from the faith in Middle School, High School, and college, and the rise of secularism and the post truth ideology pervading, this event is too important not to miss.  We are told by the Apostle Peter that we as the  church need to be “ready to give a reason for the hope that we have with gentleness and respect” (1 Peter 3:15).  

Our desire is to demonstrate this and equip you to do that as well.  Join us on July 13th and 14th for the Apologetics Boot Camp. The event will be held at 15 Butler Road, Fredericksburg, VA 22405.  For more information contact this ministry at 540.424.2305.

Is the Historical Christian Faith Compatible with Socialism?

I usually do not get involved in the political issues but because of the temperature of our nation and around the world, I believe it is important to clarify what it means to have a biblical worldview in an ever changing world.  Besides, Jesus spoke to not just religious issues of His but also delved in matters of politics as He addressed the religio-political groups of the Pharisees and Sadducees of that day.

Someone once said that there are a couple things you do not want to argue about. One is religion and the other is politics. However with the culture creeping into the church, there seems no better of a time to engage a matter that often challenges people when it comes to the church and the matter of socialism.
