Interpreting the Holy Bible will always involve a person using outside sources, according to a Christian philosophy professor giving remarks at the annual Southern Evangelical Seminary apologetics conference.
Richard Howe, philosopher and professor emeritus at Southern Evangelical Seminary, gave a lecture Saturday afternoon as part of the 23rd Annual SES National Conference on Christian Apologetics titled "Why I Don't Have a Biblical Worldview and You Shouldn't Either." Howe explained that he finds no issue when people define "biblical worldview" to mean that they have a worldview that "is consistent with the Bible."
"If that is what you mean by biblical worldview, that it isn't forbidden by the Bible, it's completely consistent by the Bible," noted Howe, "that's not what's bothering me." more >>
As American secular society becomes increasingly hostile toward Christians, many are asking if the culture war has already been lost or if they should keep fighting, refusing to yield to the siren song of premature withdrawl in a war that is not yet lost.
Speaking at the Southern Evangelical Seminary's 23rd annual National Conference on Christian Apologetics at Calvary Church in Charlotte, North Carolina on Saturday, Dr. Richard Land, president of the seminary, said Christians are called to be the salt and light of the world, and should resist any temptation to believe that because everything has already been predetermined, God will not hold believers accountable for their actions.
To emphasize his point, Land read a quote from Martin Castro, chairman of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, who issued a report in which he claimed that "religious freedom" and "religious liberty" are code words for "intolerance." more >>
WASHINGTON — Over 200 millennials participated in the Q Commons telecast Thursday night to discuss the touchiest of subjects among them: race relations and the presidential election.
In an age when tensions are running high, many are deeply cynical about what good yet another "conversation" will do. But such attitudes are not deterring the founder of Q Ideas and local pastors hosting their forums.
"I'm a cynic myself," said Dave Schmidgall, a staff pastor with National Community Church in the District of Columbia who facilitated the event, in an interview with The Christian Post. more >>
LGBT activists who cite Galatians 3:28 in an attempt to justify transgenderism are corrupting the scripture, says Southern Evangelical Seminary professor Nora Hale.
The verse reads: "There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus."
"Paul is teaching in Galatia and the Judizers say, 'You know, you need some law with this Gospel.' And Paul is saying, 'No, the law is not a Gospel at all. The Gospel is the Gospel and all of us — Jew, Gentile, male, female, all of us — are level at the foot of the Cross," said Hale, who then proceeded to reference retired Anglican Bishop N. T. Wright during her speech at the seminary's 23rd annual National Conference on Christian Apologetics at Calvary Church in Charlotte, North Carolina, on Friday. more >>
America's fall away from God has more to do with sex than unbelief in Christianity, according to Christian author and speaker Frank Turek.
If professed atheists are challenged with the question, "If Christianity were true would you become a Christian?" Turek believes that more often than not it would show that the real reason many atheists deny God is not so much because of a lack of evidence that God exists, but it would reveal a desire to pursue sexual freedom outside the confines of Christian morality.
Speaking at the Southern Evangelical Seminary's 23rd annual National Conference on Christian Apologetics at Calvary Church in Charlotte, North Carolina, on Friday, Turek explained how sex has been resurrected as a new religion in America and it is driving what he agrees is an "erotic revolt" against Christian values. more >>
Jesus still appears to people in their dreams, even to those who reject the Gospel, according to Christian apologist Barry Leventhal.
Leventhal, professor of church missions and ministries and director of the graduate school of ministry program at Southern Evangelical Seminary, told those gathered at SES' 23rd annual National Conference on Christian apologetics in Charlotte, North Carolina, on Friday that Jesus even appeared to people during the Holocaust.
As an example, Leventhal shared the testimony of a Jewish man named Joseph who during the Holocaust was forced to work in a Nazi labor camp. more >>
