God's Filter  |  January 24, 2013
Satan disguises himself as an angel of light, and we fall for it. The glare can blind us. But if we look from the perspective of God's worldview, we can see beyond the glitz and glamour, success and fame, money and popularity. Seeing the world from God's perspective alerts us to the dangers the enemy has set up to destroy us.

Spiritual Beings are Forever  |  August 29, 2012
Like God, the human soul is invisible and eludes the capability of men to place it under a microscope. If soul and body are one and the same as suggested by atheists, then how is it possible for the soul to experience life outside the body? The soul and body are separate entities.

After Jesus resurrected from the dead, He expressed unique supernatural abilities. These included the ability to disappear (Luke 24:31), to appear inside a locked room (John 20:19), and even the ability to fly into the sky when He ascended to Heaven (Acts 1:9). Will our new bodies in Heaven have the same abilities, including the power to fly?

Where is the empirical evidence for the big bang, the multi-verse, or evolution? DNA contains information, but atheists say there is no intelligent source behind it. Is this even possible? And since we know that chaos creates unreliability, how can an atheist even trust his own intelligence?

The implied idea that just because a person holds a worldview that is devoid of God means that no evidence needs to be brought forth in defense of that held belief is absurd. Christians hear it all the time in one form or another from atheists and skeptics: they want evidence for Christianity.

Evolution Facts: A Few Reminders  |  January 24, 2012

The God Virus   |  January 7, 2012
