With the exception of an occasional guest post by the seminary-trained, Bible-schooled or just general over-achieving student of all things Biblical, ancient and anthropological, the views expressed on this blog are very much intended to be from the perspective of the Average Joe (me) just trying to read God’s Word and make sense of it with the help of the Holy Spirit.
In the case you should want to dig deeper, research or even argue a bit, I’ve accumulated some websites below. Welcome your comments for other helpful resources that should be included.
GotQuestions.org is a volunteer ministry of dedicated and trained servants who have a desire to assist others in their understanding of God, Scripture, salvation, and other spiritual topics. We are Christian, Protestant, conservative, evangelical, fundamental, and non-denominational. We view ourselves as a para-church ministry, coming alongside the church to help people find answers to their spiritually related questions.
All of our answers are reviewed for biblical and theological accuracy by our staff, with final approval given by our President and Founder, S. Michael Houdmann. He possesses a Bachelor’s degree in Biblical Studies from Calvary Bible College and a Master’s degree in Christian Theology from Calvary Theological Seminary
Reasons to Believe
RTB’s mission is to spread the Christian Gospel by demonstrating that sound reason and scientific research—including the very latest discoveries—consistently support, rather than erode, confidence in the truth of the Bible and faith in the personal, transcendent God revealed in both Scripture and nature.
Reasonable Faith aims to provide in the public arena an intelligent, articulate, and uncompromising yet gracious Christian perspective on the most important issues concerning the truth of the Christian faith today, such as:
- the existence of God
- the meaning of life
- the objectivity of truth
- the foundation of moral values
- the creation of the universe
- intelligent design
- the reliability of the Gospels
- the uniqueness of Jesus
- the historicity of the resurrection
- the challenge of religious pluralism
Reasonable Faith features the work of philosopher and theologian Dr. William Lane Craig in order to carry out its three-fold mission:
- to provide an articulate, intelligent voice for biblical Christianity in the public arena.
- to challenge unbelievers with the truth of biblical Christianity.
- to train Christians to state and defend Christian truth claims with greater effectiveness.
The Gospel Coalition
The Gospel Coalition is a fellowship of evangelical churches deeply committed to renewing our faith in the gospel of Christ and to reforming our ministry practices to conform fully to the Scriptures. We yearn to work with all who, in addition to embracing our confession and theological vision for ministry, seek the lordship of Christ over the whole of life with unabashed hope in the power of the Holy Spirit to transform individuals, communities, and cultures.
Radical exists to serve the church in accomplishing the mission of Christ.
We long to see the church making disciples who make disciples who make disciples throughout the world – from our neighbors across the street to the unreached people groups across the globe – all for the glory of God.
