Evidence and unbelief

“Many think that belief in God and the gospel depends on reasons and evidence. Jesus, however, shows that in spite of five irrefutable lines of evidence, people still rejected Him. He then exposes the real heart of why people don’t believe.”

Equality, Unity and Distinction in God

Does the Trinity really matter? Or is it a complicated, theoretical teaching with no practical benefit? When Jesus taught in John 5, He explained that the very meaning of “God” is at stake if we do not understand the ideas of the tri-une God.

The working Word

Many people spend their lives in passivity, waiting for life to happen to them. The lame man healed by the pool of Bethesda illustrates how we should respond to the voice of God, instead of wasting our lives merely waiting for life to happen to us.

Trusting the words of the Word

Why doesn’t God dazzle us with sky-writing and unmistakable miracles? Why does God tend to speak softly, and expect us to trust His Word, rather than signs? We see the answer in how Jesus healed a nobleman’s son in John 4

Apologetics - Resurrection of Christ

Christianity rises and falls on one historical event: the resurrection of Jesus Christ. If this event did not take place, then Christianity cannot be true. If it did take place, it must be true, and its exclusive claims are also true.

Apologetics 4 - Dismantling Unbelief

“Should Christians be the ones on the back-foot when it comes to explaining our faith? What if Christians expected non-believers to give an account for their worldview? We might find that the non-Christian is secretly borrowing from a Christian worldview to make his worldview work.”

Apologetics - what an unbeliever needs

Why are there so many churches?

Why are there so many churches? Why are there so many denominations? Some of the answer has to do with how people do theology, and in particular, how they use the Bible. We consider a good theological method for weighing texts together.
