    by Anna Kitko, Ratio Christi Regional Director for Tennessee and South Carolina  

    Oprah Winfrey once provided a candid interview at the headquarters of her Hollywood studios television network (OWN). The topic: Oprah’s spiritual beliefs. We take notice because these beliefs are representative of the so-called “New S...   More

  • Heaven, Hell, and Halloween

    Happy(?) Halloween

    Do you celebrate Halloween? Does your church shy away from it or even strongly forbid it? There are a variety of views on this topic.

    A LOT of people celebrate it, obviously. Several news sources say that Americans spend 8 to 9 billion dollars on Halloween food, drinks, costumes, and decorations.
    What IS Halloween?


    Halloween is a shortened form of the phrase All Hallows Eve.
    November 1st is the Feast of All Saints (All Hall...   More

    Corey Miller, Ratio Christi CEO and President

Or perhaps you would like to be better prepared to weigh in while talking with friends or colleagues. This is a three part series that will help you understand the relationship between faith and science. This first article addresses the very nat...   More

  • Do We Not Understand or Just Not Care?

    Last week I discussed not using the bible and quoting scripture to the lost. I’m not sure I made the point I was attempting to make which was basically the Bible itself states the lost do not understand. Yet, for some reason, be it reformed theology or presuppositional apologetics, or whatever, for some reason we still want to quote scripture to non-believers. And sadly, often out of context.   More

  • Classical Challenges and Arguments For Christianity

    The October 22nd Meeting was on Classical Arguments for Christianity, and was posed around three common challenges to Christianity:

    • The Problem of Pain
    • The reliability/historicity of Scripture
    • The evidence for the resurrection of Jesus

    Here is the slideshow from that meeting.

    Of course, it doesn't capture the excellent discussion. For that, you will have to come visit us - Monday nights at 6:30 PM in CFS 123.

  • Stop Using the Bible and Quoting Scripture!

    Last week, on the RC Talk podcast, I discussed two reasons concerning why we, as Christians, are not sharing the truth. The first being if no one is upset with you, then you are not talking to anyone, and second, if you are talking to people about truth they will have questions. I have not heard of anyone being upset with any Christian’s, except me of course, and if most were being asked questions, apologetics would be a lot more popular!   More

  • What chu talk'n bout Willis?

    Don't use words too big for the subject. Don't say "infinitely" when you mean "very"; otherwise you'll have no word left when you want to talk about something really infinite.  - C.S. Lewis   More

  • Awaken the Dawn

    On Friday during our normal meeting time we had the pleasure of joining the Awaken the Dawn movement and praying under the tent on campus with some really nice local folks we'd never met before.  It was such a blessing to be there.  We went back and forth between singing songs and praying.  The worship time together was so much fun!  Thank you to the event organizers who made it possible, and to all our regular attenders - all of whom came.   More
