God / Theism

Points to Remember When Making the Case for God’s Existence (Free Bible Insert)

There are several evidential arguments for the existence of God from Cosmology, Teleology, Axiology and Logic. I’ve described these arguments and created a Bible Insert to help you recall the detailed steps necessary to make the case for God’s Existence. This month, I’d like to provide you with a second

Stepping Toward the Christian God With A Wallet and a Dollar

I’ve been writing about an object lesson I used with my father several years ago to describe why God’s existence is reasonable. I used this illustration while I was waiting with him at a waterpark (my kids were little in those days), and I was limited to what I had

Stepping Toward a Personal God With A Wallet and a Dollar

Yesterday I described a simple illustration I used with my father to make the case for theism using a wallet and a dollar (you’ll probably need to read that article to make sense of today’s blog). The point of the object lesson was to establish the inadequacy of naturalism in

Is God Real? The Argument for God’s Existence from the Appearance of Design in Biology

There are several lines of evidence related to the existence of God, but perhaps the most intuitive argument comes from our observations of biology.  As we examine the complexity and inter-connectivity of biological systems, we can’t help but come away with the impression these organisms and cellular micro-machines have been

Is God Real? God is the Best Explanation for Objective Moral Laws

We live in a world populated with self-evident, objective, transcendent moral laws. “It’s never OK to torture babies for fun” or (my new favorite from a blog reader) “It’s never OK to torture non-believers just because you don’t like them?” are two examples of such transcendent laws. How do we
