What do I think is the best argument for God’s existence?

There are many philosophical and scientific arguments for God’s existence. Many of them are convincing and powerful like the kalam cosmological argument, teleological argument, or the moral argument. I’ve even written about those in one of my first ever blog posts. However, I think there might be an even better argument when understood correctly. Check it out!

Is the Bible scientific? with Dr. Hugh Ross

I continue my discussion this week with Dr. Hugh Ross from Reasons to Believe. As we discussed last week, Dr. Ross released his newest book on September 5th titled, Always Be Ready: A Call to Adventurous Faith. We begin this episode by telling a story from the book about a divine encounter on an airplane. The rest of the episode responds to the questions that many of you sent in. These questions include:

  • What is the scientific evidence against changing laws of nature?
  • Is the Bible scientific?
  • Where do we place the dinosaurs?
  • What is carbon dating?
  • How do you know Christianity is true?
  • Why is it important for Christians to pick a side on the age of the earth debate?

I hope you enjoy his responses and don’t miss out on your chance to send in questions for my next interview! Make sure and follow the social media links below for more info.

Always Be Ready with Dr. Hugh Ross

When I started to read Always Be Ready: A Call to Adventurous Faith, I felt like I was back on the mission field. During my four years as a missionary in the Dominican Republic, I often found myself reading missionary biographies. It was so encouraging as a new missionary to hear stories from veterans of how God had worked and done miraculous things.

apologetics

When I came back to the U.S. I began my work in apologetics. Virtually every book I have read over the last three years has dealt with a specific apologetic topic. Some books have stories to prove a point, but I never read, nor was I aware of an apologetic biography. This is exactly what Hugh Ross, Christian astrophysicist and founder of Reasons to Believe, did with his newest book.

Always Be Ready doesn’t focus on an issue in science apologetics. Instead, it is filled with story after story of people coming to Christ and God working to orchestrate divine appointments through the life of Hugh Ross and others. God will often surprise us and give us an adventurous faith if we are ready.

I hope you are encouraged by the testimony and stories just like I was.

Science and the Mind of the Maker with Melissa Cain Travis

I know this is the week that you have all been waiting for. Part 2 of my interview with Melissa Cain Travis is finally up, and I had so much fun discussing her new book, Science and the Mind of the Maker: What the Conversation Between Faith and Science Reveals About God. I really hope you enjoy listening to it as much as I enjoyed recording it. If you didn’t listen to last week, then you missed out. But don’t worry! You can go back and listen to it here. We had a great discussion relating to apologetics to children, women in apologetics, and issues about science and faith.

Melissa serves as Assistant Professor of Christian Apologetics at Houston Baptist University, where she has been on the faculty since 2013. She is a contributing writer for Christian Research Journal and has written for the CT Women column on the Christianity Today website. Melissa is pursuing a Ph.D. in humanities, focusing on the history and philosophy related to scientific and mathematical thought in the Western tradition and contemporary scholarship. She earned the Master of Arts in Science and Religion from Biola University.

Enjoy our discussion!

How does science point to God? with Melissa Cain Travis

51LBTymPneL._SX321_BO1,204,203,200_

Melissa Cain Travis joined me on the show this week for part 1 in discussing her new book, Science and the Mind of the Maker: What the Conversation Between Faith and Science Reveals About God. We ended up having a great discussion relating to apologetics to children, women in apologetics, and issues about science and faith.

I really wanted to her Melissa’s thoughts on apologetics to children because she is the author of a Young Defenders apologetics storybook series. The books in this series include: How Do We Know God is Really There?, How Do We Know God Created Life?, How Do We Know Jesus is Alive?, and How Do We Know Right from Wrong?.

Melissa serves as Assistant Professor of Christian Apologetics at Houston Baptist University, where she has been on the faculty since 2013. She is a contributing writer for Christian Research Journal and has written for the CT Women column on the Christianity Today website. Melissa is pursuing a Ph.D. in humanities, focusing on the history and philosophy related to scientific and mathematical thought in the Western tradition and contemporary scholarship. She earned the Master of Arts in Science and Religion from Biola University.

I hope you enjoy our conversation! Don’t miss part 2 next week.

How to Have a Fruitful Dialogue with Mormons

On August 4th, I got back from leading my first MAVEN Immersive Experience. I had an absolute blast spending 6 days in the Salt Lake area learning from experts and sharing the Gospel with Mormons. We had some great conversations and I want to share those with you in a hope that my experience will help you have fruitful dialogues with Mormons.

Check out MAVEN if a trip like this sounds interesting to you. I also want to encourage you to look at the resources and great ministries that we were able to work with while in Utah. They include:

What’s the worldview behind the question?

The way you see the world is going to shape how you view information. For this reason, it is critical to understand the worldview behind the question when you are engaged in a discussion. Listen this week to see how to understand this idea and apply it to conversations.

Listener Questions and the Question Behind Marriage

I decided to do things a bit different this week and get my topics from Instagram. I posted on my story for people to send in any question that they would like to have answered on the show, and four questions quickly came in. They were:

  1. How was Satan able to be in God’s presence in the book of Job?
  2. Who’s the cute girl in the pic??
  3. What has God taught you this past week?
  4. Would you live internationally again given the chance?

I then finished up the episode talking about the main question behind abortion and marriage. Check it out!
