  • Free speech prevails in California for now – AB 2943 shelved in Legislature

    In 2018, California Assembly Bill AB 2943 posed a direct threat to free speech and presentation of the Gospel message. Had it passed, this bill would have made it a “consumer fraud” to operate a paid event or offer paid counseling utilizing a biblical approach to human sexuality regarding same-sex attractions and gender identity.1

    Passage of this bill would have prohibited Christian pastors, counselors, authors, educators, and ministries in California f...   More

  • Apologetics on the Campus of Wayne State University

    Thank you for your interest in Ratio Christi at Wayne State University! Ratio Christi is a Christian critical thinking club that specializes in apologetics, that is, on considering the truth claims of the Christian faith. We create a safe space for open discussions and friendly debates about faith, science and related topics. Christians, atheists, Muslims, students of other faiths (and of no faith) and skeptics bring much to these discussions. Our goal is for each of us to learn from each o...   More

  • A Visit from an Atheist...

    I recently had the opportunity to attend an event on the campus of Marshall University in Huntington, West Virginia. I challenged local pastors, Christians, and two campus ministries to join me in a Facebook post. Needless to say, no one accepted my challenge. I know, probably not the best idea anyway. The event was titled, Bringing Creationism to its Knees, and featured a popular internet atheist.   More

  • Why We Do What We Do? The Case for Apologetics

    Throughout the history of the church, there have always been vicious attacks on the existence of God and the Bible. Scripture commands believers to be prepared to give a defense.1 Peter 3:15 states: "But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear". The Greek word for defense here is "apologia", which is where we get the term apologetics. Apologetics is the branch of Christi...   More

  • Join Us for "The Reason for God" an Exploration into Questions Skeptics Ask about Christianity

    Starting Sunday, Sept. 9, 2018 in UIowa IMU Room 339

    This small group study, The Reason for God, captures live and unscripted conversations with a group of people to address their doubts and objections to Christianity. Using literature, philosophy, and Scripture, Keller and the group explore the truth of Christianity.

    In his New York Times bestselling book The Reason for God, Timothy Keller established himself as a modern-day C. S. Lewis who brings togethe...   More

  • Musings on the Mall

    While making the rounds at the club fair I had some interesting dialogues on all kinds of topics ranging from concrete canoes to armor manufacture to acapella singing.  I had hoped to get folks at the Secular Student Alliance table to enter into a dialogue with me, but I failed.  I guess my question, "When you hear the word 'Christianity', what do you think of?" wasn't a very good opener.  "Ugh.  Ugh..."  When asked what the purpose of the club was, one...   More

  • Why Apologetics?

    Many people do not know, or care, about apologetics. Most do not know what the word even means. And maybe that is okay. I don't think so. But then again it is what I do for a living. I am a full time missionary, an apologist. But do we really "need" apologetics? Seriously, outside of it being a Biblical command, which obviously is of vital importance, why would we really need apologetics?   More
