  • Social disapproval or approval of homosexual marriage?

    What are the inherent philosophical presuppositions about the nature of society and about society’s relation to the individual?

    “Supporters of same-sex marriage believe that ALL traditional notions about gender, marriage and family result from artificial social institutions rather than from an immutable human nature endowed to us by God or nature.  This is the social construction theory of human nature and institutions.

    Contrast this with...   More

  • Homosexual Marriage: What is the Real Issue?

    The upcoming vote on North Carolina's constitutional amendment draws attention to the ongoing debate about the position government should take on the issue  of homosexual marriage. This topic of same-sex marriage is extremely controversial, and discussion on the topic is often heated. I believe that many people miss the key point of this debate.      More

  • Why Apologetics?

    Apologetics is an interesting discipline in Christian theology. In simple terms, apologetics is giving a defense of the Christian faith. There are many applications and views of apologetics in Christian culture. There are those that put too much emphasis on it; simply striving to “prove” themselves and their thoughts to be correct. Some say it is not useful and refute it outright. There are even some that say it is not useful, yet use apologetic techniques unknowingly. The prope...   More

  • Clay Jones on Ratio Christi/Biola Partnership

    I'm excited about Ratio Christi! Many years ago when Bill Bright started Campus Crusade for Christ the average university student was much more open to the truth claims of historic Christianity. In fact, the biggest thing that many Christians encountered in witnessing was that most students already thought they were Christians because they went to a Christian church. Thus we'd often resort to saying things like "standing in the garage doesn't make you a car and go...   More

  • Special Project Funding Request

    Coordinated Apologetics Calendar & Speaker’s Bureau

    Imagine a web site where you could find every apologetics event happening in the whole country. Ratio Christi has been developing this new web site feature, and we believe it will be the most significant unifying project in the apologetics community ever. We need $7,000 to get this project over the hump. Please consider a special gift of any amount to make this a reality. Below are the details.   More

  • Student Observations on the Reason Rally

                                         Reason Rally Diaries

    by Jonathan Shelton, University Junior at Lenoir Rhyne University and member of Ratio Christi, attended the recent atheist Reason Rally in Washington DC

    The Reason Rally was a big experience for me. It was my first mission trip. The people I engaged with were fairly we...   More

  • He IS Risen

    For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received, that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures. . . ~Paul   More

  • The Necessity of the Resurrection

    I would have a hard time being a Christian if Jesus Christ's resurrection were a farce. The resurrection is proof that Christ's sacrifice was accepted by the Father. Without the resurrection, the claims of achievement of His sacrificial death would be reduced greatly. It would logically lead me to wonder about Vicarious Atonement as a whole. "From the standpoint of an apologetic for Christian theology, belief in Jesus Christ as the Son of God stands or falls with the question of His...   More

  • Supported Missionary Program Gains Momentum at Ratio Christi

    With over 60 chapters on secular college campuses in the nation, Ratio Christi is seeking to boldly bring Christian apologetics to universities around the world. Ratio Christi is not just an organization, it’s a movement. But who are the people who make up this movement? Behind every Ratio Christi club is a Chapter Director. They are passionate about apologetics, and love what they do. Some of them are becoming full time apologists/missionaries. Jane Pantig, a Chapter co-Director of R...   More

  • Recommended Resources on the Evolution Debate

          Evolution has been a matter of debate for over a hundred years. Atheists like Richard Dawkins have vehemently defend it as fact, but others, both atheist, agnostic, and theist alike, have come out and critiqued it, daring to think that maybe it isn’t. Below is a list of resources for learning about the weaknesses in the theory of evolution as well as a variety of views on intelligent design, creation, and origins.   More

    In an interview with Ratio Christi chapter director Keith Kendrex, he gives us insight into the new partnership between RC and a Christian apologetics radio show, Evidence4Faith.

    Q: So in addition to being a chapter director at Richard Stockton college, you're also a radio show host of "Evidence4Faith". What prompted you to these two positions?   More

  • Is It Wrong to Think You're Right?

    by Josh Welch (RC Member & Student at Ohio University)

    In American pop culture, Christians who share their faith (or even admit to believing in Christ) are viewed with disdain and perceived as threatening. Of course, a few Christians do act like jerks, but this is not why people are so upset at Christians. In fact, it is evangelism itself that upsets them. I was discussing this topic with someone once, and in a burst of passion, she finally admitted what upset her about evangel...   More
