Reason, Chess, and the Existence of God

There’s an obvious connection between Logic and chess, this is evident from the numerous logic and debate books out there with pictures of chess boards on their covers. If you think of a chess player, you'll think of a very logical, analytic person. When you think of a Logic professor, it’s safe to assume he... Continue Reading →

The Goal of Christian Apologetics 

Apologetics, Christian Apologetics, should be just that- Christian. Like I’ve said in my other posts on the subject, apologetics comes from the Greek word apologia and is most readily associated with “the defense of the faith”. But the biblical depiction is much more than mere defense. The Apostle Peter, in 1 Peter 3:15, exhorts us... Continue Reading →

Another Apologist’s Evening Prayer 

Lord give me knowledge,  apprehension of truth, Understanding and wisdom,  I don’t care if it’s couth. Teach me to honor  Christ in my heart,  To never mistake  the horse and the cart.

Christian Worldview Apologetics: an overview 

I'm hesitant to write on apologetics. A common critique of the apologetics I practice is that we spend all our time discussing and debating apologetical methodology instead of actually going out there and doing apologetics. A renowned cultural critic and apologist, Os Guinness, told himself that he'd never write a book on apologetics because he'd... Continue Reading →

I’m “Very” Christian, But…

A pervasive part of the post-modern society is personal definitions and self-identification. I've heard lots of people, mostly from my generation, say they're Christians and then espouse a series of beliefs that completely contradict the basic tenets of the Christian faith. One telltale sign that a millennial is about to obfuscate Christianity is when they... Continue Reading →

Why I Believe In God 

Why do I believe in God? That's a good question and it's been raised again and again throughout my life. It wasn't until college that I finally started thinking through a reasoned answer to why I believe. 1 Peter 3:15 tells me that I should always be ready to give a defense for the reason...

 The Problem of Evil 

(This content is taken from Appendix A of my intro to apologetics book, Defending, Contending & Commending: Worldview Apologetics Made Easy and Biblical)  The Problem of Evil is said to be the biggest defeater raised against God, specifically the one true God, the God of the Bible. The "problem" has been stated in many different... Continue Reading →

We Don’t Want To Believe

We don't want to believe in God. If you look at the stats worldwide and even in the United States you might come to another conclusion. "Most people actually do believe in God, Park". So let me expand on what I'm saying, most people don't want to believe in the God of the Bible. "Oh... Continue Reading →

What Do You Believe? 

They say there are a two things you don't talk about at a dinner party: politics and religion. Well "they" are stupid. Our political stance and our religious views are some of our most foundational beliefs. I guess it would depend on the goal of your dinner party, but if you're interested in getting to...
