The Power of Knowledge

If you could know anything, what would you want to know? We all have an insatiable desire to know something. It’s what drives new discoveries, new creations, and new ideas. We may want to know where we will be in five years, or when the pandemic will be over, or how to create light without a lightbulb or a candle. Yet that information escapes us until given proper permission. Want to know what happens in five years? Wait five years and see.

How to Use Discernment in an Age of Illiteracy

False teachers are everywhere. Everyone thinks that they're the next John Piper, prepared to give controversial opinions with little care given to the legitimacy of their claims. In an age of false news and quick, unresearched opinions, it can become almost impossible to properly research current events. Every smalltime blogger, podcaster, youtuber, and writer thinks that their take on current events is the most factual, needed piece of content on the web, and they're usually wrong...

Monday Q&A 8: Christianity Compared

Comparing Christianity is an easy discussion for a missionary kid formerly based in a continent dominated by Muslims. Having seen firsthand the similarities and differences between Christianity, Islam, non-belief, and the rest, I have looked forward to this discussion since beginning the Monday Q&As. Because this is the last Q&A from Stoa Apologetics, I will …

The Tragic Loss of Real Masculinity

Our culture has completely lost what it means to be a man. What was once a proud and accomplished status now lies discarded in the dirt. Boys have taken over our country. They have normalized non-manhood, brought themselves and their immaturity into popularity, and they continue to reject the true calling to manhood. This travesty …

Monday Q&A 7: Christian Worldview Application

Worldview is a difficult topic to discuss, given the fact that the subject changes based on the person. Because everyone has a different worldview, it can become difficult to even speak on the subject, let alone have a decent discussion on the topic. Christian worldview, on the other hand, is a unifying topic that needs …

What Does It Mean to Be Grateful?

Monday Q&A 6: God and Man

In our past three Q&A's, we have discussed three highly important topics: the character of God, foundations of Christianity, and Scripture. Yet so far, none of these topics have been as important as the one to be discussed today. God and man. Deus et Hominum. Theós kai ánthropos. The center of Christianity. So why, exactly, …

John Grisham’s Guide to the Depravity of Man

Over the summer, I have made it a point to increase my reading load. Mein Kampf, Pride and Prejudice, A Man Called Peter, Pontius Pilate, and many others have been the subject of my reading. Yet, standing apart from the rest, a single author has recaptured my attention, returning my reading to the world of …

Monday Q&A 5: Scripture

Scripture. The key component to Christianity at its core. The cornerstone of our beliefs. Without Scripture, we have no belief, no Faith, no arguments, and no understanding of God and His existence. The defense of Scripture is so important that it has become a large tenant to Apologetics. Without it, Christianity fails. Because of its …
