  • Why are you a Christian?

    Part of the interview process, during my time as an Air Force recruiter, was to ask the applicant numerous questions. The first few questions consisted of what the person enjoyed doing, such as hobbies, interests, and entertainment. It was a way of establishing rapport. However, as the interview progressed, the questions became more focused. Many times, it was a little uncomfortable, due to the nature of the question. You see, every answer given, had a purpose behind it. Basically, everythi...   More

  • Inerrancy and Evangelism

    Weekly Small Group Meeting Notes: by Erica Broadbent

    The Inerrancy Argument in Evangelism

    Although Christians know of the Bible’s inerrancy, is it best to make that argument when trying to evangelize?

    The Ratio Christi team at Liberty University concluded that one could make a point on the reliability of the Bible, but should, in most circumstances, refrain from making the inerrancy argument. It is not that the Bible isn’t inerrant or that o...   More

  • Millennials Losing Knowledge of God and Faith

    In Late October and early November 2017, RC's Director of College Prep Michael C. Sherrard did a series of written, video and audio interviews on the topic of Millennials - the generation of 15-to-30-year olds, and why they're losing faith in Christianity and they have no knowledge of God. He calls listeners and readers to be aware that discipleship of this generation (born between 1987 and 2002) has been shallow to non-existent, and what can be done to improve the numbers of young...   More

  • The Bowery and the Church!

    During my teenage years, on vacation with my parents to Myrtle Beach, we walked by The Bowery. I was instantly intrigued. The music first caught my attention. Not that I was a country music fan, but the resemblance to the original performer of whatever song was being played. Then the confederate flag, before confederate flags were bad, was, and to the best of my knowledge, still painted across the front of the building. I thought this must be the coolest place on earth! After all, one of th...   More

  • Is Morality Real?

    Few philosophers are willing to abandon the notion of morality when they adopt atheism as their worldview.  But when they try explaining morality without a theistic foundation, they explain something else.  They explain “what is,” and think they have explained “what ought to be.”

    The evolutionary explanation for morality is that the development of the “altruistic” gene enabled some species, including humans, to better survive th...   More

  • Christian Student's Answer to Religion Exam Essay Prompt Impresses Professor: Student Guest Blog


    My name is Holly Morgan and I am a senior mass communication student at Winthrop University. This semester, I am taking a Religion course on the Old Testament. The aim of the course is to give students a basic understanding of the Old Testament and how to interpret the text. Obviously, the information presented in class must be taken with a grain of salt because Winthrop is a liberal arts university. As much as I like to joke that the course is heretical, it is my favo...   More
