As a Christian, are you aware of the most basic arguments against your faith? For instance, if someone asked you to explain the dinosaurs from a Christian perspective, could you? We're looking at that question and more in the second and final part of our two-week series, "10 BIG Problems Many Christians Don't Even Know About."

"It should not be surprising, then, when cultures consistently believe that there is nothing special about being human, that soon they deny ultimate moral obligations and unalienable human rights too. When man is reduced to a mere animal—when the force of one’s worldview logic demotes humans to mere biological machines—morality and human rights die and power is all that remains." -- Greg Koukl, The Story of Reality
A good reminder. "Let your speech be always with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man." (Colossians 4:6).
“If we are nothing more than the product of undirected chemical processes, there is no reason to assume we would somehow end up with the ability to make logical and rational decisions, to feel remorse for any action we take, or to love someone so much we would not dream of hurting them. For me, consciousness arriving out of the matter that arrived out of nothing takes WAY more faith to believe in than a creative, intelligent, personal being choosing to create, telling us how He did it, explaining the human condition, and giving us a way of escape from the judgment of our rebellion.”
Does the #Bible take a position on deathbed conversion? The answer might surprise you!
"A behavioral inconsistency shows that the evolutionist does not actually believe in his heart of hearts what he is saying. For example, consider the university professor who teaches that life is just a meaningless sequence of accidents, and that humans are just evolved animals — rearranged pond scum. But then he goes home and kisses his wife and kids, as if they were not just rearranged pond scum. Or consider the determinist who teaches that human beings have no choice in wh...at they do; their actions are totally predetermined by the laws of chemistry in their brain. Yet he is outraged when someone steals his car. He insists that the thief be found and prosecuted. But why should a thief be punished if he had no choice? In both cases, the behavior of the unbeliever is contrary to his actions. This shows that he is living according to a different worldview than the one he professes." -- Dr. Jason Lisle, The Ultimate Proof of Creation
Resolving a Bible scientific "error."
The #Origins debate is tricky. Many claim "science proves evolution," but can science even comment on it?
This week, we deal directly with the age of the earth and why it matters so much to theology. Despite many Christians' belief that this issue is secondary, I believe it is extremely important!

Why do Christians care about the age of the earth? Isn't it a FACT that it's billions of years old?
Excellent video by our friends at Stand to Reason. The Christian story is not mythical, nor is it wishful thinking. Like it or not, believe it or not, it's your story!
I'm glad the timeless truths of the #Bible transcend what the news report says!
