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 …

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 …

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, …

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 …

Monday Q&A 4: Foundations of Christianity pt.2

Hey, and welcome back to another Monday Q&A! Today's topic is "The Foundations of Christianity", the second and last discussion here. Last week, we talked mostly about the depravity and utter sinfulness of man, but this week, our focus turns to Jesus and His effect upon man and sin. So, without any further ado, let's …

The False Pretense of Teenage Christianity

Last week, I blogged about the true meaning of our teenage years. In that post, I laid out what our culture expects of us, the teenagers. Directly after, I gave a call. I called all teenagers into the "Do Hard Things" movement, a commitment to rebelling against low expectations and doing the hard things. But, …

Three Popular Misconceptions About Christianity

Any person with even the most mediocre understanding of religious statistics will tell you that out of every three people you meet, one will be a Christian. Or, at least, they claim to be Christian. In every culture, we find watered-down Christianity. In Africa, we find Christianity mixed with semblances of witchcraft. In the East, …

What is True Fulfillment?

Teenagers struggle with fulfillment. Somehow, as we transition from children to adults, we begin feeling this never-ending thirst for something. We don't know what it is, but we certainly feel that it can be filled. Some seek this fulfillment in family or a significant other in the hope that a relationship will fill this gap. …

God’s Glory Through Sinful Man

God's glory is perhaps the most fascinating and central subject for a Christian. It is a key factor to the death and resurrection of Christ, and actually is one of the reasons for Christ's death in the first place. Furthermore, God's glory is the biggest reason for Christians to act as they do. Truly, it …

Avoiding Passivity in a Time of Crisis

Four days ago, I published a post talking about the Universal Sabbath. The post was well received, but one of the comments stuck with me. A woman gracefully reminded me of the fact that this is a crisis, not a vacation. While many of us are stuck in our houses, there are others out there …

Throwback Saturday: The Politics of YouTube

I spend around three hours a week on YouTube. While not even close to the amount of time others may spend on the mega site, three hours is still a lot. In fact, three hours is enough to do a very long, very nice blog post or advertise this blog. These are three hours that …

What We Learned From Hacksaw Ridge

Hacksaw Ridge is the most brutal, gory, bloody, and redemptive movie I have seen in my entire life. Rated R for "intense prolonged realistically graphic sequences of war violence including grisly bloody images," the film is quite possibly the most gory movie to be made, and yet it does justice to the story it was based …

Hope: The Defining Line Between Salvation and Disbelief

Hope. The defining factor between Christianity and Secularism. As I wrote about in my previous post, defining hope within Christ, we understand hope as being grounded on the death and the resurrection of Jesus Christ and truth of the Gospel, complete contentment within Christ and His plan, having released our sorrows and stress to Him, …

God’s Fulfillment Through Man’s Insufficiency

"And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."Philippians 4:7 One of the most fulfilling experiences as a Christian is to discover the full measure of Christ's grace. Not only does His grace encompass all sin, death, and hatred, but it also covers our weakness. After all, …
