"Believers who aim to defend their faith make a very serious mistake when they imagine that something like "reason" should displace Jesus Christ as the ultimate authority (Lord) in their thinking and argumentation... reason can be thought of as an ultimate and independent authority or standard by which man judges all claims to truth, even God's. In this sense, reason is a law unto itself, as though man's mind was completely self-sufficient with no need of divine revelation."    Dr. Greg L. Bahnsen

God's Ownership Rights

God's Legal Standing

The law of the Lord is perfect, reviving the soul; the testimony of  the Lord is sure, making wise tthe simple; the precepts of

the Lord are right, rejocing the heart;

the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes; the fear of the Lord is clean, enduring forever; the rules of the Lord are true, and righteous altogether.

Psalm 19:7-9

 

Genetic Entropy presents compelling scientific evidence that the genomes

of all living creatures are slowly degenerating  due to the accumulation of slightly harmful mutations. This is happening in spite of natural selection.

Dr. Sanford's findings have enormous implications. His work largely invalidates the classic neo-Darwinian theory. The mutation/selection process by itself is not capable of creating the new biological information that is required for creating new life forms. Dr. Sanford shows that not only is mutation/selection incapable of creating our genomes - it can't even preserve our genomes.   Read More....    

When Sam Harris wrote his book Letter to a Christian Nation, stating that Christians display "murderous intolerance," Dr. Ravi Zacharias felt called to answer. The End of Reason is a clear and powerful response to the "utter bankruptcy" of Harris's New Atheism as it explains the true nature of God, the foundation for evil in the world, and the basis of true morality. Far from an academic treatise, it is a book that you can readily share with your friends and family. It is a book that is written to empower Christians in their daily lives as they encounter daily struggles and challenges. 

Secularism has swept through the land, removing the moral compass from culture and replacing it with narcissism.  People are directionless, guilt-ridden, and hopeless.  It's time for Christians to stand up and give answers from a biblical worldview.  Right Thinking in a World Gone Wrong provides biblical answers to cultural issues of our day.  Whether you're talking about video games, the Internet, environmentalism, illegal immigration, the problem of evil, it's all here.  Written by John MacArthur and the pastoral team at Grace Community Church, it will help you navigate through the issues and give you answers for an unbelieving world.    Dr. John MacArthur

"The world lives in a time of crisis.  Christians alone are in a position to rescue the perishing. We dare not settle down and try to live as if things were normal." —A.W. Tozer

"If by excessive labor, we die before reaching the average age of man, worn out in the Master's service, then glory be to God, we shall have so much less of earth and so much more of Heaven!"  —C.H. Spurgeon

     "...the gospel... of first importance..."            1 Corinthians 15:1,3

 If there is anything in life that we should be passionate about, it is the gospel. And I don't mean passionate only about sharing it with others. I mean passionate about thinking about it, dwelling on it, rejoicing in it, allowing it to color the way we look at the world. Only one thing can be of first importance to each of us, and only the Gospel ought to be.   —C.J. Mahaney, The Cross Centered Life

This book is about the enormous flaws in atheism, the quest for Truth, and why it is rational to believe in God. The book will begin with the link to consciousness and science to God, and then it will lay out the most rational candidate for the Creator. Before reading the following chapters, it is worth pondering these two questions:

.

1.   Do you have an open mind, and is the Truth important to you?

2.   If you had proof that God really does exist, would you believe in Him?    Kenneth Francis

For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought captive to the obedience of Christ.   2 Corinthians 10:5

For this is what the LORD says, He who Created the Heavens, He is God; He who Fashioned and Made the Earth, He Founded it; He did not Create it to be empty, but Formed it to be Inhabited.     I am the Lord, and there is no other.       Isaiah 45:18

1. We Have 24,633 Biblical Manuscripts

There are 5,300 Greek manuscripts, 10,000 Latin manuscripts, and 9,000 other manuscript copies of the New Testament extant today.  The combination of early dating and enormous number of New Testament copies causes historical experts such as Sir Frederic Kenyon (former director and principal librarian of the British Museum) to say, “The interval, then, between the dates of original composition and the earliest extant evidence becomes so small as to be in fact negligible, and the last foundation for any doubt that the Scriptures have come down to us substantially as they were written has now been removed. Both the authenticity and the general integrity of the books of the New Testament may be regarded as finally established.”

2. Archaeology Supports/Confirms the Biblical Record

Archaeology has repeatedly confirmed the accuracy of Biblical places, events, and people. Thousands of finds have corroborated the accounts of the Bible, and to date, no archaeological finds have ever disproved a single Biblical event, civilization, or individual. Not one.

.

3. The Original Writings Were Faithfully Preserved

Scribes listed the important statistics at the end of each book copied. As an example, the total number of verses in Deuteronomy is 955, the total in the entire Torah is 5,845; the total number of words is 97, 856, and the total number of letters is 400,945. By assessing the statistics, each book copied could be mathematically measured for errors.

.

4. The New Testament Was Written Shortly After the Events it Records

The New Testament gospels were recorded relatively soon after the events which they record. At the very latest, the four gospels were written 40-60 years after Jesus’ resurrection. Many New Testament books predate the gospels. Paul’s letters to the Galatians and Ephesians, for example, were written 15-20 years after the time of Christ, while living eyewitnesses who could have easily discredited these texts if they were not accurate. No such accounts exist.
