Resurrection (Part 2): Did A Group Of Women Discover Jesus’ Empty Tomb?

SPECIAL REVELATION We previously said that the term “revelation” can be understood in its broad sense as a “communication from God” or its narrow sense as the “disclosure of something previously unknown.” The most important of these is the revelation of Jesus Christ. This includes the understanding that Jesus of Nazareth was more than a good man or wise teacher: … Read More

Exclusivity: How Can You Legitimately Claim That Jesus Is The Only Way To God?

REVIEW We’ve presented five arguments for the existence of God and answered atheism’s objections about suffering in the world, God’s origin and his hiddenness. As Christians, we’ve already borne the burden of proof in presenting five arguments for God. In raising their objection about Jesus’ claim to exclusivity, it is atheism’s turn to bear the burden of proof and make … Read More

Sometimes the excuse is “You can’t prove a negative.” Sometimes they claim that “Since we don’t want to present any evidence for atheism, let’s just make atheism the default assumption.” Well, that would certainly be convenient for atheists. How about the recent … Read More

God’s “Hiddenness”: If God Exists, Why Doesn’t He Make It More Obvious And End Unbelief In The World?

WHAT WE’VE LEARNED SO FAR: GOD EXISTS We now want to address a third objection that atheists raise concerning “God’s hiddenness.” Keep in mind that agnosticism merely says “we don’t know,” but atheism makes the claim “we know that God does not exist.” As they explain why this alleged “hiddenness” is a defeater of the arguments we’ve presented, we would … Read More
