  • No Such Thing as "Blind Faith" (Part 6)

    MOVED TO FAITH BY DIRECT EXPERIENCE

    In support of the Central Thesis: “No one can actually believe in something blindly.” (Part 1)

    Direct Experience is perhaps the most common route to faith articulated in the Bible, and quite possibly by Christians the world over.  Seeing something “with your own eyes” is the quickest route to establishing &ldq...   More

  • Getting Ready for the 2013-2014 School Year

    We are excited to be at SJSU again this year. We plan on doing a study with Cold Case Christianity by J. Warner Wallace and hopefully we will have him come speak at SJSU for our major event this school year (Check out his website, http://coldcasechristianity.com/). We also hope to have Dr. Ken Jung come speak at our meetings (Check out his blog http://kalanjung.blogspot.com/). The students really enjoyed his talks last year on Postmodernism and Religious Pluralism. We are excited to...   More

  • A Christian's Reflections on Ramadan

    I love Muslim people. Many students at the University of Michigan-Dearborn are Muslims who are native residents of our community where I live, or other suburbs of Detroit.   (There is also a growing number of international students who are Muslims.)  On campus and elsewhere I find that many Muslims respect Christian apologetics and Christians who can intelligently defend their faith in a way that is tempered with “gentleness and respect” (1 Peter 3:15b).  The...   More

  • Is Jesus the Jewish Messiah? Dr. Michael Brown to Lecture at The Ohio State University

    Apologetics is a branch of Christian theology that helps provide reasons for belief in the explanatory power of Christian theism. It is true that other faiths attempt to provide reasons for justification for their own truth claims.

    One apologetic method that is a bit unfamiliar but is not entirely new is what is called Messianic Apologetics.

    Messianic Apologetics is not new because it deals with many of the same objections that Jesus and His followers encountered in the fi...   More

  • No Such Thing as "Blind Faith" (Part 4)

    MOVED TO FAITH BY INTUITION

    In support of the Central Thesis: “No one can actually believe in something blindly.” (Part 1)

    Having a new-born infant in the house is one of the greatest blessings imaginable.  But there are also some very disorienting aspects of the newborn that make a computer-programmer-type person a little crazy.  Lack of sleep is not a big deal...   More

  • No Such Thing as “Blind Faith” (Part 3)

    Moved to Faith by Reliable Sources

    In support of the Central Thesis: “No one can actually believe in something blindly.” (Part 1)

    What do you consider a reliable source of information?  We put our trust (faith) in others all the time.  Eating at a restaurant shows our faith in the cooks, the health inspectors, or even the friend who tell us, “It looks terr...   More

    In support of the Central Thesis: “No one can actually believe in something blindly.” (Part 1)

    This series of blog posts will explore what is meant by Christians when they say they have “faith” in Christ.  This will serve dual purposes of causing the Christian to seriously consider HOW they the...   More

  • Militant Atheists and the 'Other' Holocausts

    Where Are the New Atheists Leading Us?

    By Rick Schenker, President of Ratio Christi

    In a letter that General Dwight Eisenhower wrote to General George Marshall on April 15, 1945, he described some of the horrors he saw in Nazi Germany’s Holocaust. He indicated that it was necessary to preserve the evidence so that, “if ever, in the future, there develops the tendency to charge these allegation...   More

  • Join 'em, Separate from 'em, or Win 'em? - Ratio Christi ("the reason of Christ")

    by John Stewart, International Director, Ratio Christi

    The study of God is called “theology,” and the approach to the study of God that addresses subtopics such as salvation, sin and man is called “systematic theology.” The purpose of studying God in a systematic fashion is to cover all teaching about God, His purpose, and His work in history that are presented in the Bible. Systematic theology has be...   More
