Is It Hateful to Critique Religious Groups?

Thou shalt not bear false witness

If you have spent a decent amount of time doing counter-cult ministry, it is quite likely that you have been accused of hate, slander, or other charges. To be fair, I have seen some apologists bully people around: trying to back folks into a corner, demanding answers, pulling pot shots, and the like. (If that’s you, stop it!) [1]

Questioning Q: Did These Manuscripts Exist?

[ Author: Kathy Petersen ]

If you’re familiar at all with issues related to the gospels, their historicity and scholarly questions about who wrote them and when, you’ve probably heard of “Q”. [If you haven’t, it’s a hypothetical written gospel that was written prior to the four canonical gospels, which the (synoptic) gospel writers drew from in writing their accounts.]

Every Christian an Apologist

[ Author: Kathy Petersen ]

Apologist? – does this mean we go around apologizing to everyone? No. In the classical sense, an apologist is one who gives an answer or a reasoned defense for what he believes or how he acts. When the apostle said that we are to be ready to “give an answer”, the Greek word (apologia) from which the English word “apologetics” is used. Similarly, when people are said to be “without an excuse”, the same Greek word, except in the negative, is used.

Belief and Sincerity in the LDS Faith

Sincerity is both an inward quality of conviction along with a perceived quality of being free from pretenses, deceit or hypocrisy.

This is a quality I admire and respect among professing Latter-Day Saint [or LDS] believers. I have found that the culture within Mormonism fosters this type of environment that is quite honestly disarming to a certain degree.

Facebook Apologetics Study Group

Christian Apologetics Study

We now have an apologetics study group on Facebook called: (CASA) Christian Apologetics Study Alliance. I’ve been meeting more people that would like to get into apologetics but just don’t know where to start. Additionally, a number of folks are flat out intimidated by some of the more complex arguments of scholars like William Lane Craig, Gary Habermas, N. T. Wright etc. So, with that, I created this group to help facilitate the beginners–I’m a layman myself but not quite a beginner–in getting their feet wet in this field of study. While we warmly welcome the more scholarly types (we definitely need these folks in our group too!), our primary focus is to cater to the newbies.

The Atheist Experience Defeats The Kalam Cosmological Argument With A Sandwich (Video)

I’ve been watching The Atheist Experience consistently for a handful of months now (I’ve watched short clips of it before but not full episodes) and I’m rather amused by what I see. I’m sad to say that the majority of the Christians who call in, are generally making bad arguments. I recently heard someone say that the main host of “TAA” (Matt Dillahunty) has made a career of going after low hanging fruit. Some may be offended by such a statement, but this person is trying to convey that there are too many Christians making terribly uninformed arguments on the program. Arguments that, are not the best that Christianity has to offer. However, there have been some good arguments brought forth as well, but at times were not properly unpacked in my opinion. In the rare case that a good argument has been brought forth, and in a cogent way, the caller has often been interrupted and subsequently muted. Following that, handfuls of logical fallacies have been offered by the hosts while improperly calling out ones that are not.
