Bible Review: The CSB Worldview Study Bible

Holman sent me a copy of their CSB Worldview Study Bible awhile back, after I requested one. This is the second Bible they've sent me, and I sincerely appreciate them for it. I told them I would be happy to write a review, and I did that tonight. First of all, I really love the… Continue reading Bible Review: The CSB Worldview Study Bible

Introducing the Think Institute

I (Joel Settecase) started blogging on apologetics in 2012. But that wasn’t my first foray into the sharing (evangelism) and the defense (apologetics) of the faith. Back in high school I would engage my fellow students and wrestling teammates with the Gospel and why I believed the Bible’s message was true. I also sought out… Continue reading Introducing the Think Institute

This Is Apologetics: An Argument from Truth (Part 4)

Much ink has been spilled by apologists over the centuries, demonstrating that the Christian worldview is true. But what if the very concept of truth were impossible without first believing in the Christian worldview, in the truth of Scripture and the God revealed therein? In this series we've defined truth according to three criteria, defined… Continue reading This Is Apologetics: An Argument from Truth (Part 4)

One of These Worldviews Is Not Like the Others

The Bible, the biblical worldview, stands on its own. It is internally consistent non-contradictory, coherent, cogent and cohesive. It is existentially satisfying. Best of all, it is in accordance with the facts--it is objectively true. Because of all this, we can share the Gospel and defend the truth of the Christian message with all the… Continue reading One of These Worldviews Is Not Like the Others

What the Greeks Got Wrong

"The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom." This sentence, from Psalm 111:10, was written about 536 B.C.--during or immediately after the lifetimes of the first Greek philosophers, Anaximenes, Anaximander, and Thales. Anaximenes wrote that "all is air." Anaximander said that "all is indefinite." And Thales believed that "all things are full of… Continue reading What the Greeks Got Wrong

On Lordship and Apologetics

"I am false or confused if I sing about Christ's Lordship and contrive to retain areas of my own life that are autonomous" (Francis Schaeffer). When defending the Christian faith, it's important to remember that we are doing so as subjects of King Jesus. He doesn't need our defense, but he's given us the privilege… Continue reading On Lordship and Apologetics

On Staying Salty

How should Christians answer those who ask us about our beliefs or our lifestyle? There are many ways we could respond. When Paul addressed that question, though, he told the Colossian believers to keep their speech gracious, and to keep it salty. "Salty" in our day means getting upset over something unimportant. But in the… Continue reading On Staying Salty
