Southern Baptist megachurch pastor Robert Jeffress has said that he disagrees with Christian author Max Lucado when it comes to Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, explaining that he wants to see the "meanest, toughest" option for fighting the Islamic State terror group and other threats.
Jeffress, who leads First Baptist Church in Dallas, Texas, said in an interview with NPR that while he "loves" and agrees on certain things with Lucado, he disagrees on what qualities are needed for president.
"Well, first of all, I see a lot of common ground with Max Lucado. I love Max Lucado. And, you know, I've disagreed with his point of view," Jeffress explained. more >>
A Christian philosophy professor said at the Southern Evangelical Seminary's annual apologetics conference on Saturday that in some sense, the atheist argument that God is not necessary for morality can hold water, but in another it fails to see that God is needed for humans to achieve their ultimate purpose.
"Is God necessary for objective morality? There is a sense in which that answer is no, God is not necessary for objective morality. I also think there is a different sense in which the answer is yes," Richard Howe, philosopher and professor emeritus at Southern Evangelical Seminary, said at the 23rd annual SES National Conference on Christian Apologetics. more >>
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 >>

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 >>
