In other words…


Jesus replied, ‘Your mistake is that you don’t know the Scriptures, and you don’t know the power of God.'”

PS–there are plenty of quality “apologetic” Biblical studies out there to answer many difficult questions about the Bible.  It’s okay to ask questions; it’s not okay to gripe about not getting answers.  After all, it really does take a little bit of rocket science to get to the moon and beyond…!  (But it’s well worth the view.)

Tends toward TMI, so here's the short list: guitar and banjo (both of which have been much neglected as of late), bicycling (ibid), dogs, very black tea, and contemplating and commenting on deep philosophical thoughts about which I have had no academic or professional training. Oh, also reading, writing, but I shy away from arithmetic.

  1. Unfortunately, I think some people just want to argue about Scriptures and not really want to learn about the real deal. I pray for the hearts of these people, so they may have their eyes opened to the Truth.

    1. Some, but not all. There are truth-seekers (who really want to know) and there are self-seekers (who just want to justify their lifestyle). Only God knows the difference, because behavior is not a good indicator…at all.

  2. Honest question: do you know anyone who has come to Faith in Christ as a result of Apologetics answers? Could you tell the story if you do. Thx

    1. Actually, that’s a really good question. I’ve heard it said that you can’t “argue” anyone into Heaven, but clearing away some of the honest reasonable questions (what’s been interestingly called “pre-evangelism”) through things like apologetics can be beneficial. In that sense, yes, for example both the writers of Evidence that Demands a Verdict (Josh McDowell) and The Case for Christ (Lee Strobel) place themselves in that camp if I’m not mistaken.
