Productie van proteïnen
Dat alle proteïnen, die in de levende cel geproduceerd worden, op de juiste wijze gevouwen en correct geadresseerd worden, is niet voldoende. De cel moet bovendien van elk proteïne de juiste hoeveelheid aanmaken. Indien een cel de productie van een bepaald proteïne niet op het juiste moment zou kunnen stopzetten,...

Zout in uitvoering – zoutonderzoek
Maar al te vaak krijg ik het verwijt dat creationisten niet zelf wetenschap bedrijven.

Vorige week nog was ik bij collega Stef Heerema om proeven te doen met gesmolten zout. Wetenschap is...

Atheism’s Rational Failure Leads to Unhinged Anger

Anger

The Sad, Mad Case of Belligerent Atheists

Ever since I became a Christian in my early twenties, I have spoken with many hundreds of non-Christians who have told me that I was wrong to believe in God. The most bitter and rancorous of these rebukes have come from atheists. This behavior is consistent with people who lack an absolute moral standard—therefore they sputter out caustic and biting reproofs against God and Christians. Atheism cannot impart love and patience; some atheists have these virtues but they cannot account for them, and they do not have the empowering spiritual resources to walk in them. A large amount of atheists I have engaged have been wholly intolerant of criticism. Christians may behave rudely and contentiously, but when they act this way they are in opposition to the teachings of Jesus Christ. Christians are acting in an inconsistent manner when they engage in troubling behavior. It would appear that the atheist is consistent with Darwinian thought when he acts in a hostile and combative fashion.

Atheist Peter Boghossian, the belligerent author of the book A Manual for Creating Atheists, can rail against the misdeeds of the professed Christian, but he lacks a foundation for objective moral values to justify his outrage. Only Christian theism can provide the necessary preconditions for non-subjective moral values that are needed to justify moral disgust.

While this essay is intended for all Christians, it has been written in the form of a response to Boghossian and the other combative New Atheists. In this blog series, I will refute many of the hollow arguments put forth by Boghossian and various skeptics. Another objective of these posts is to demonstrate that atheism is illogical, immoral, and absurd. I address the nonbeliever who believes that only the material universe exists, and that there is nothing more than matter and motion.

The Resurrection Answers Three Big Questions

“The resurrection of Jesus Christ is either one of the most wicked, vicious, heartless hoaxes ever foisted on the minds of human beings—or it is the most remarkable fact of history.” My father has often shared these words to me in person, and he’s written them in his books. The older I get, the more I realize they’re unmistakably true. There’s no middle ground with the resurrection of Jesus. Either it is a colossal fabrication or the most important event in history.

10 Reasons to Accept the Resurrection of Jesus as an Historical Fact

When I left the ministry due to my skepticism, one of the factors involved in my departure concerned the reliability of the New Testament documents and the resurrection of Jesus. The folks from the Jesus Seminar had me second-guessing whether I could trust what the New Testament said and if I could truly accept the literal bodily resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth. In July of 2005, my life changed. I entered the Lifeway Christian Bookstore in Winston-Salem, North Carolina and read three books that changed my life more than any other book outside the Bible. I discovered Lee Strobel’s The Case for Christ, Josh McDowell’s The New Evidence that Demands a Verdict, and McDowell’s A Ready Defense. I discovered that there are many reasons for accepting the resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth as a historical fact.

Through the years, the evidence has increasingly mounted for the historicity of Jesus’s resurrection. This article will provide 10 of the most fascinating arguments for the resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth. This list is not exhaustive and my dealings with each argument is extremely brief. Nevertheless, I hope this list will provide a starting point for you to consider the authenticity of Jesus’s resurrection.

You Can No Longer Separate Apologetics and Evangelism

Yesterday I was interviewed by Mike Spaulding for an upcoming episode of Soaring Eagle radio. During our talk, he asked me about the growing need to incorporate apologetics into our evangelism efforts. Of course, Christians are commanded to study and be prepared to defend the Christian faith. There are many verses in the Bible commanding us to defend our faith. Therefore, we should be ready to do so.

The idea of apologetics as a necessary part of one's faithful walk is new to most Christians. They understand the need to worship God, to live a set apart life, and even the command to evangelize given by Jesus in the Great Commission. However, learning apologetics isn't something preached from most pulpits today. Yet, in the first few centuries, apologetics and evangelism were inter-reliant. In fact, when you look at the writings of the early church fathers, you see how big a role apologetics played in their interaction with the outside world. Here are just a few examples:

Contemporary Atheists and Sneer

Fight

I’ll confess that I feel sorry for contemporary atheists. There was a time when “atheism” simply meant “rejecting belief in a God or gods.” Thanks to the rise of New Atheism, things are not so simple for the modern atheist. Today, the discerning skeptic can choose from a smorgasbord of brands, including antitheism, nontheism, friendly atheism, militant atheism, activist atheism, agnostic atheism, and plain old-fashioned atheism. Old-fashioned atheists are a straightforward bunch; they have rejected belief in God for emotional or intellectual reasons that they usually can articulate. Atheism is just something they happen to believe.

The newer atheists are a different kettle of fish: atheism is part of their identity, and they consider themselves part of a movement. They have arguments for atheism, but usually these have been copied and pasted from Dawkins and Hitchens and can be reduced to the length of a “tweet.” They often are passionate about their branch of “atheist movement” yet also will insist that atheism isn’t actually a belief system. In other words, their thinking tends to be a little addled, and this makes reasoning with them difficult.

So if it is difficult to be an atheist, witnessing to atheists is even more challenging. An atheist with a considered opinion can be reasoned with, but many members of the various movements have minds muddled by Internet memes and celebrity soundbites. These ideas must be untangled carefully to make progress. And, on top of all this, the atheist movement does not want for curmudgeons who simply wish to waste the Christian’s time with invective and insults. I assume that most readers of the Christian Research Journal are familiar with the best arguments for Christianity. So, in this short article, I will simply point out a method that will help you discern which atheists are open to conversation, and which are deliberately attempting to demoralize and distract you. If an atheist is genuinely open to conversation, no matter how combative that atheist is, I counsel patience and respect. Christians need to play the “long game” when witnessing to their skeptical friends. Don’t aim to win arguments; aim to sow seeds of doubt that their atheism is true, and let God give the increase.
