Hell—A Tribute To God’s Love

All who espouse Christianity live in hope of eternal life.  Together with God’s promise of eternal life for the faithful (cf. John 3:16; 1 John 2:17; 5:13; John 4:14; 17:3; 2 Corinthians 4:17; 2 Timothy  2:10; Matthew 25:34, 46; Titus 1:2; et al.) is a corresponding promise of eternal destruction and punishment for the rebellious sinner and unfaithful Christian ...

WHEN TOWERS FALL: GOD IS ENOUGH

On the morning of September 11, 2001, the worst single act of terrorism occurred at the World Trade Center in New York City, at the U. S. Pentagon in Washington, D.C., and in the skies over Pennsylvania. A total of 2,977 people were killed. It is likely the case that every person reading these words remembers where he or she was when the news came that morning that drastically changed America in these times...

How Can We Conceptualize Eternal Life?

When we reflect on the faithful Christian’s reward, we are made to wonder what is meant by the expression eternal life?  Another way to say the same thing biblically are terms like everlasting life, et al.  Does this just mean a life that is unending from the time of our physical death, or is it truly eternal life?  Are we to think that time extends, and is present, even in the spiritual realm?  If so, is God bound by time, or is the spiritual realm timeless?  Was time created (in order to give us a history—a no more, not yet, and now) along with the physical universe, or does the physical creation act independently of time?

FATHERHOOD AND THE CASE FOR GOD

In her book, Why Me? ADoctor Looks at the Book of Job, Yale University Pediatrics Oncologist, Dr. Diane Komp, relates an experience of Rebecca Pippert. As a student in a college biology class, Pippert heard her professor, on the first day of the semester, say that humans are “merely a fortuitous concourse of atoms, a meaningless piece of protoplasm in an absurd world” (108)...

Something Or Nothing

The issue of “origin” as a concept has to begin somewhere. From whence did everything that is arrive? What is the source of all that we experience on earth? Ultimately, we are going to have to face two theoretical possibilities. Either there was a point at which there was “nothing,” or there has never been a point at which there was “nothing.” But before we go further, let us make sure that we are all on the same page regarding what nothing “is.” Look at those last quotation marks. They indicate that the very concept of “is” is opposed to the very concept of “nothing.” If we say that nothing is so and so, we are trying to give nothing some sort of ontological or “being” status, which by definition it simply cannot have. Nothing is not something. Nothing has no characteristics or qualities. Nothing is void of everything. It is the absence of anything and everything. It is the negation of all being. And by “being,” we mean existence at its most fundamental ontological level. If “nothing” were to be the absolute ultimate ontological condition at a given point, then we as men could not “think” it. As humans we cannot live with nothing and our minds are not equipped to even clearly grasp the meaning of the term we choose to describe as the absolute ontological contradiction to “being.” We have to think of “nothing” as a “something” even to bring it forward as a concept for discussion. Isn’t that amazing? And isn’t that insightful?

Is there a Substitute for God?

It is hard to say where it started. With Guttenberg? Galileo? The industrial revolution? Darwinism? Somewhere along the way, Western man began to lose his belief in God as a personal force, as decider of his fate, as ultimate judge of his actions. The idea that God created man became old-fashioned; we evolved. The notion of Hell was picturesque, but no longer compelling. Life began to be seen as more or less accidental; sin became a relative, sociological matter, and to many a pure fiction. After millenniums of living under gods, man came to regard such belief as archaic and superstitious. Like a son who decides he need not depend upon his father any longer, he set forth to make his own way in the world.

An Apologetics Treasure

The 1976 Warren-Flew debate on the existence of God has been called “The Debate of the Century.” Given the four night debate attendance that averaged several thousand, the masterful logical argumentation of Thomas B. Warren, and last but not least, the announcement by Dr. Antony Flew 29 years after the debate that he was no longer an atheist but had come to believe that God exists, it would be difficult to argue against the claim that this indeed was “The Debate of the Century.” In fact, the Warren-Flew debate may very well be the most devastating defeat experienced by atheism during the last several hundred years.
