SORT BY Relevancy
Even in the most loving, peaceful relationships, arguments happen. Sometimes they get heated and very ugly. What happens when in a moment of rage, you and your spouse begin to say the unspeakable? What happens when bad names are called and someone hits below the belt with hurtful remarks? What happens when someone threatens divorce? When it gets this bad, can you reconcile? What words can you say to erase the effects of the extreme hurt caused by the argument
It's All Star Week, and as the #HomerunDerby comes to an end, and the #ASG on deck . . .
I'm mindful of all the meaningful memories I have that are centered around baseball. I remember when I was little and my bother would get so mad when his team would lose. I'd stay up, after he went to bed, just to see the final out, always believing that there was a chance that his team would win in the end. I never gave up, until that last out.
I wanted to play the 'Closing Argument' that didn't get to be aired earlier today, because I was waiting for the founder of @LawandBO to call in to the show. Sadly, I learned the reason he was unable to was because his mom had a stroke and doctors found a mass. I'm doing this special segment to air it now, and also share a prayer for my friend Tony, his mom and his family. I hope you'll join me in following @LawandBO, vote for his blog to be named in the top one hundred of ABA blogs, and just say a prayer for his mom. Thank you.
The universe appears to be designed. DNA is a code, and codes come from intelegent minds. Look at how complex the universe is! How could the eye possibly have evolved?
In this epidose, we'll discuss the design argument. Is irreducuble complexity reasonable? How do we get an eye?
Plus your calls makes the show more awesome than awesome. That makes sense, right?
Before I get to the meat and potatos of the episode, I want to talk briefly about the Nye vs. Hamm debate that just happened. Then, the First Cause Argument.
Does the Cosmological argument hold water? What if there is a cause for the universe? How does the atheist deal with this all-too-common argument? This is my take on it.
Your calls make it awesome.
The Reasons to Believe #41
Our Reasons to Believe Scripture passage for today is Colossians 4:5-6. It reads, "Walk in wisdom toward them that are without, redeeming the time. Let your speech be always with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man."
Our Reasons to Believe quote for today is from Ron Carlson and Ed Decker. They said, "To be an atheist you must have infinite knowledge in order to know absolutely that there is no God. But to have infinite knowledge, you would have to be God yourself. It's hard to be God yourself and an atheist at the same time! The Bible says in Psalm 14:1, “The fool says in his heart, ‘There is not God.’"
Our Reason to Believe powerpoint today is titled "The Argument from Change for the Existence of God" from "The Handbook of Christian Apologetics" by Peter Kreeft and Ronald K. Tacelli:
The material world we know is a world of change. This young woman came to be 5'2", but she was not always that height. The great oak tree before us grew from the tiniest acorn. Now when something comes to be in a certain state, such as mature size, that state cannot bring itself into being. For until it comes to be, it does not exist, and if it does not yet exist, it cannot cause anything.
As for the thing that changes, although it can be what it will become, it is not yet what it will become. It actually exists right now in this state (an acorn); it will actually exist in that state (large oak tree). But it is not actually in that state now. It only has the potentiality for that state.
The Reasons to Believe #42
Our Reasons to Believe Scripture passage for today is 1 Peter 3:15. It reads, "But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear."
Our Reasons to Believe quote for today is from John MacArthur. He said, "Truth is never determined by looking at God’s Word and asking, “What does this mean to me?” Whenever I hear someone talk like that, I’m inclined to ask, “What did the Bible mean before you existed? What does God mean by what He says?” Those are the proper questions to be asking. Truth and meaning are not determined by our intuition, experience, or desire. The true meaning of Scripture—or anything else, for that matter—has already been determined and fixed by the mind of God. The task of the interpreter is to discern that meaning. And proper interpretation must precede application."
Our Reason to Believe powerpoint today is titled "The Argument from Efficient Causality for the Existence of God" from "The Handbook of Christian Apologetics" by Peter Kreeft and Ronald K. Tacelli:
We notice that some things cause other things to be (to begin to be, to continue to be, or both). For example, a man playing the piano is causing the music we hear. If he stops, so does the music.
Now ask yourself: Are all things caused to exist by other things right now? Suppose they are. That is, suppose there is no Uncaused Being, no God. Then nothing could exist right now. For remember, on the no-God hypothesis, all things need a present cause outside of themselves in order to exist...
The Reasons to Believe #44
Our Reasons to Believe Scripture passage for today is 1 Thessalonians 5:20-22. It reads, "Despise not prophesyings. Prove all things; hold fast that which is good. Abstain from all appearance of evil."
Our Reasons to Believe quote for today is from John Lennox. He said, "We have only to see a few letters of the alphabet spelling our name in the sand to recognize at once the work of an intelligent agent. How much more likely, then is the existence of an intelligent Creator behind human DNA, the colossal biological database that contains no fewer than 3.5 billion "letters" - the longest "word" yet discovered?"
Our Reason to Believe powerpoint today is titled "The Argument from Efficient Causality for the Existence of God" (part 3) from "The Handbook of Christian Apologetics" by Peter Kreeft and Ronald K. Tacelli:
Why not have an endless series of caused causes stretching backward into the past? Then everything would be made actual and would actually be --- even though their causes might no longer exist.
First, if the kalam argument is right, there could not exist an endless series of causes stretching backward into the past. But suppose that such a series could exist. The argument is not concerned about the past, and would work whether the past is finite or infinite. It is concerned with what exists right now.
Even as you read this, you are dependent on other things; you could not, right now exist without them. Suppose there are seven such things. If these seven things did not exist, neither would you. Now suppose that all seven of them depend for their existence right now on still other things. Without these, the seven you now depend on would not exist --- and neither would you...
Can morals be grounded without an external source? If there are standards of morality, from whence do they come? How can anyone make a judgement of good or evil without a standard?
Let's look at the moral argument for god, and condemn the bastard to the realm of imagination for failing so badly!!
Plus your calls.
Do I even have to say awesomesauce?
The Reasons to Believe #43
Our Reasons to Believe Scripture passage for today is 2 Corinthians 10:5-6. It reads, "Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled."
Our Reasons to Believe quote for today is from Randy Alcorn. He said, "While Western atheists turn from belief in God because a tsunami in another part of the world caused great suffering, many brokenhearted survivors of that same tsunami found faith in God. This is one of the great paradoxes of suffering. Those who don't suffer much think suffering should keep people from God, while many who suffer a great deal turn to God, not from him."
Our Reason to Believe powerpoint today is titled "The Argument from Efficient Causality for the Existence of God" (part 2) from "The Handbook of Christian Apologetics" by Peter Kreeft and Ronald K. Tacelli:
Why do we need an uncaused cause? Why could there not simply be an endless series of things mutually keeping each other in being?
This is an attractive hypothesis. Think of a single drunk. He could probably not stand up alone. But a group of drunks, all of them mutually supporting each other, might stand. They might even make their way along the street. But notice: Given so many drunks, and given the steady ground beneath them, we can understand how their stumblings might cancel each other out, and how the group of them could remain (relatively) upright. We could not understand their remaining upright if the ground did not support them --- if, for example, they were all suspended several feet above it. And of course, if there were no actual drunks, there would be nothing to understand.
The Argument: Covenantal or Dispensational?
Switch on almost any Christian TV or radio broadcast, buy almost any Christian book dealing with the Last Days, and what you'll hear is a viewpoint called "Premillenial dispensationalism". Popularized and taught at many American seminaries today including Dallas Theological Seminary in Texas, it gives a perspective on the Jewish People, the nation of Israel, the Middle East and the Second Coming of Christ that historically the Church has rejected for most of her 2000 years. This Thursday at 9:30 pm, we'll talk about WHY that's been so. Tune in and take notes! Your host, Rev. Rick Anderson on "Jewish Roots" a podcasted radio talk show. Listen LIVE at http://www.blogtalkradio.com/fougcrew, twitter, linkedin, Googleplus, and facebook.com/fougcrew. To call with a question or comment: 347-324-5759.
In this re-airing, blogger Sacerdotus responds to the fallacious argument of 3000 gods that atheists often use. They claim that since mankind has a variety of "gods," that theists are atheist to the rest of these gods that they do not believe in or worship. Sacerdotus explains this argument and shows using history, anthropology, philosophy, psychology and logic to show that this argument is bunk and shows the ignorance atheists have regarding what "God" really is. He explains why there are so "many gods" in human cultures throughout the world and how this does not contradict monotheism in the sense atheists believe it does.
So now that you argued and had a disagreement, what do you do?
How do you transition from angers, disappointments and misgivings to balance again?
How do we build relationships that have enough trust built into them that we can disagree and work our way through those disagreements without causing a wedge between us?
