  • In Memory of Rick Schenker

    Rick Schenker, the first president of Ratio Christi (RC), recently passed away after seeming to win a battle against leukemia. His passion for evangelism and his giftedness to start grass-roots movements and organizations fueled the engines for RC to become a national (and now worldwide) phenomenon. Rick had an infectious smile and the heart of Barnabas, the ‘son of encouragement.’ Rick was loved by many, and each of us who knew Rick can tell of his influence in our lives. I wou...   More

  • Isaiah 5:20

    There has been violence in the world since the beginning of time. Some claim it is worse today than it has ever been. I would suggest it isn’t. We simply have more access, through technology, to make us more aware of what is going on in the world. Regardless, it amuses me, there are so many experts in every case. Have you ever heard the saying concerning “armchair quarterbacks?” Seriously, and of all the experts, many of the most watched or listened to are preachers! Yelp,...   More

  • Why Fideism Isn't an Option for Christians

    If you have never heard of the word fideism, it it quite common in Christian circles. It is true that many Christians and churches don’t use the word “fideism.” But the impact of fideism is everywhere. Let me give a definition here which is offered by Stanford Encyclopedia online:

    “Fideism” is the name given to that school of thought—to which Tertullian himself is frequently said to have subscribed—which answers that faith is in some sense...   More

  • Check Out Ways to Watch Truth Matters!

    Have you been watching RC-TV's Truth Matters? This is a show dedicated to providing believers and skeptics with the evidence for the Christian worldview, introducing 'Truth' with a capital T, and leading people to the person of Jesus Christ. There are plenty of ways to watch!   More

  • The Mutist: the Limits of Apologetics, and Dude, Get Some Help

    The moniker, ‘mutist’ hit me in the face like a good Metallica (or Megadeth) riff: it rung my bell.  The term is found on page 47 of Frederick D. Wilhelmsen’s book Man’s Knowledge of Reality: An Introduction to Thomistic Epistemology. It’s a must read for our skeptical “What-if-we’re-living-in-the-Matrix?” culture. (Well, unless you’re a nominalist or a Platonist or a conceptualist or…. Still, I commend the book to you). The...   More

  • A Free Gift for You

    Here's The Good News That's Combatting the Sad News on Campus. Read on and Receive a Free Gift.

    Dear Readers,

    What's the saddest statement about today's college students? They have no memory of the gospel.

    In his book "Meet Generation Z," James Emery White states,

     

    They do not know what the Bible sa...   More

  • Division in the Church

    Have you been unfriended on Facebook lately? Sent out some type of communication such as a newsletter; and had people “unsubscribe”? Do you wonder why people, normally adults, do these types of things? Yeah, I know, we usually already know why when these things happen. Do you lose as much sleep as I do when these things happen? Sarcasm, sorry. Anyway, what does this have to do with causing division in the church? I am glad you ask!   More

  • “My Teenage Years Brought a Crisis That Challenged Me to Own My Faith”

    We admit it. We love our Legatus Christi students! Summer is an exciting time for us to recognize the many students in our Ratio Christi chapters who received the Legatus Christi certificate at the end of the school year.

    Ratio Christi chapter directors select students who are both well-versed in Christian apologetics and capable of meeting the challenge of being an “Ambassador of Christ” (see the    More
