God is One

The Bible very clearly teaches that one God exists. “Hear O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD.” (Deut. 6:4) God said in His first commandment, “Thou shalt have no other gods before Me.” (Ex. 20:3) This doesn’t mean other gods actually exist. The apostle Paul told the Corinthians, “We know that an idol…

Rethinking What’s Possible

The Bible is based on the supernatural. It says “the Lord God [is] omnipotent [all-powerful]” (Rev. 19:16), and that “there is nothing too hard for [Him]” (Jer. 32:17). “[He] canst do every thing” (Job. 42:2), and “He ruleth by His power for ever” (Ps. 66:7). “[He] only hath immortality, dwelling in light in which no…

Arguments and Rebuttals

Saying God is the cause of intelligence doesn’t tell us what caused God. This argument is powerless. If you were walking up to the entrance of a park and saw a group of flowers that were arranged to spell “WELCOME TO THE PARK,”  you would know they were the cause of intelligence. No sane person…

Biblical “Contradictions” Explained

There are a multitude of so-called contradictions in the Bible, some of which are minor copyist errors that involve numbers. For instance, I Kings 4: 26 says Solomon had 40,000 stalls of horses for 12,000 horsemen, while II Chronicles 9: 25 says he had 4,000 stalls for the 12,000 horsemen. 40,000 stalls are way too…

Homosexuality

Many people these days claim the Bible doesn’t condemn homosexuality. II Timothy 4:3, 4 speak of a time like this when people won’t endure sound doctrine, but will turn their ears away from the truth and instead turn to fables to satisfy their own desires.  Leviticus 18:22 clearly calls homosexuality an abomination, yet people stubbornly say…

Fornication

Fornication is any sexual act done outside of marriage.  This includes pornography, which comes from “porneia,” the Greek word for fornication.  Even something you may not consider pornography (such as a swimsuit catalog) can make you guilty of fornication if you view it with lust, since lust alone is a sin (Prov. 6:24, 25; Matt.5:28;…

In the Name of Religion

A lot of violence has been committed in the name of religion, but nearly all of it comes from radical Islam. In spite of this, there are atheists who say the Bible causes violence.  If they think bringing an end to Christianity would do a lot of good, they should think about all of the…

The Satanic Bible

The Satanic Bible was created in 1969 by Anton Szandor LaVey to explain the philosophy and ritual practices of his Church of Satan, which he founded in 1966. He was an atheist who didn’t actually believe in Satan, but he claimed to believe in what Satan stood for. According to him, Satan is a liberator…

Blaming God

In a world with so much evil and suffering it can be easy to blame God.  A sovereign God has control over His creation, so He’s often deemed to be wrong for allowing corruption.   He created the angels knowing that some of them would rebel against Him.  He knew these evil spirits would then tempt…

Old Testament Vengeance

Some of God’s judgments from the Bible’s Old Testament are often misunderstood and called atrocities.  One of them is the hardening of Pharaoh’s heart.   Chapters 3-12 in the book of Exodus tell the story of Moses and his brother, Aaron, pleading with Pharaoh to let the Israelites leave Egypt instead of keeping them in bondage. …
