WHY THE JUDICIAL USURPATION OF POLITICS IS A THREAT TO THE AMERICAN CONSTITUTIONAL ORDER The federal judiciary looms larger over the American political landscape than in any previous moments in American history. Many have actually described this as the judicial usurpation of politics, pointing to the fact that over the last several decades, the federal courts have basically usurped much of… Read more

WWUTT: Jesus is the Firstborn of All Creation?

Colossians 1:15 says that: Jesus Christ is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. Now, there are many we’ve interpreted, “firstborn of all creation,” to mean that Jesus is the first being created by God. The Mormons teach He is the literal offspring of “Heavenly Father and Heavenly Mother” (also, literally the brother of Satan). The Jehovah’s Witnesses believe Jesus is the Archangel Michael. However, the very next verse says: He is the image of the… Read more

Jesus in HD 191: Of Slugs and Kings

Not to be clichéd! But if the words, “Mission Accomplished” ever meant anything to anyone in any situation, they absolutely apply here in John 17. As you are about to hear in this PODCAST, this is the moment, courtesy of John, now forever frozen in time. The singular moment toward which all of human history, going all the way back to the Garden of Eden, had been slowly but steadily building. The seminal moment from which the remainder of human history, down to our present day,… Read more

Story Team Weekly: The Author and Perfecter

Bitia Buenrostro was born on November 13th, 1984 in the tiny border town of Brownsville, Texas. Much of her youth was spent carpooling back and forth across the border into Matamoros, Mexico. Summers were full of youth group adventures, family dinners, and plotting her illustrious Quinceañera, a life event that rivals the importance of a wedding day to a little girl in Mexico. Just before she entered fifth grade, Bitia’s parents withdrew her and her little brother from the private… Read more

5 Minutes in Church History: Feathery Christians

What is a “feathery Christian”? In this episode of 5 Minutes in Church History, Stephen Nichols explains the significance of the great Puritan pastor Thomas Watson. Have you ever heard of “feathery Christians”? It’s a line from a book by Thomas Watson. Here’s what Charles Haddon Spurgeon had to say about the book: “Thomas Watson’s Body of Practical Divinity is one of the most precious of the peerless works of the Puritans and those best acquainted with it prize it most.

Reasonable Faith Podcast: Jesus Under Fire

Was Jesus wrong about divorce? What about imperialism? Was Jesus merely a legend?

WILLIAM LANE CRAIG:You mean that people who sent these to you were really disturbed by these things? KEVIN HARRIS: Sure. Possibly just disturbed by the title. But you have to read them, too. DR. CRAIG:Yeah. When you read them they are almost… Read more

Breakpoint: The Story of Reality—Really… A Fresh New Look at Worldview

Can we ever really know the meaning of life? A new book dares to say “yes,” and then shows us how.

The cover of a new book my good friend and apologist extraordinaire Greg Koukl makes a very bold claim. It promises to deliver “The Story of Reality: How the World Began, How It Ends, and Everything Important that Happens in Between.”And in only 200 pages, Koukl delivers, walking us through, in a new and fresh way, God’s grand… Read more

White Horse Inn: A Life of Doxology & Praise

As contemporary Christians have become increasingly detached from both the drama of Scripture and its doctrinal significance, our praise has shifted from a focus on God and his glory to our individual worship experiences. Yet we are not only called to gather once a week to sing God’s praises and to receive his good gifts, but also throughout the rest of the week to be loving, generous, and hospitable to others in grateful response to all that God has… Read more

WWUTT: The Shack vs. the Bible?

The Shack, a novel by William Paul Young, has sold over 20 million copies and has been made into a feature film. It’s about a man whose daughter was murdered, leading him to ask why a loving God would allow such evil. He goes back to the place where she died and meets God as a woman who goes by “Papa”, the Holy Spirit (also a woman) and Young’s version of Jesus.
