Has this ever happened to you before? You’re having a discussion about spiritual matters with someone who has a higher level of education than you do, and almost immediately, your ideas are dismissed as primitive or untenable. I want to submit that while I highly value both higher education and the peer review process, there are at least five serious myths associated with them that cause unnecessary contention between believers and unbelievers.

"In short, Biblically speaking, we can make sense of personal tragedy because it does not define us. Our lives are not the sum of our multiplied tragedies. Our lives today ought not to be compared with what they one day will be." https://buff.ly/2mv8Fwy #Christianity #Apologetics
Do you often forget things you've learned? Perhaps it is because you have not *properly* managed the knowledge God has given you. Here are three biblical suggestions. https://buff.ly/2qMoyD9 #Christianity #Apologetics #KNOWLEDGE
John Walton—professor of Old Testament at Wheaton College and formerly of Moody Bible Institute—suggests that we have been looking at Genesis all wrong for quite some time. His view is that since it is characteristic of most Ancient Near Eastern literature to view creation in light of functionality vs. material origin, so should the biblical text be interpreted in such a way. In this lesson, we take on that view as part of our “Biblical Origin of Humanity” series.

"Could it be that if we are faithful to God in stewarding the knowledge He has given us, He will allow us to learn and retain even more? That is an exciting thought."
The Christian faith is not absent of intellect. To the contrary, throughout the centuries, Christians have been seen as some of the most well-learned individuals. Along with this comes a responsibility to steward--or manage--God's gift of knowledge. Here are three biblical habits for the new year to help you do just that.

“We Christians accept the miraculous nature of a virgin birth and of Christ rising from the dead–would it be so hard so believe God putting a light in place, miraculously, before the Sun? Not for me!” https://buff.ly/2AuP0kC #creation #Apologetics #Christianity
