Challenge: Only Tyrants Demand Worship

Posted: September 18, 2012 by Amy Hall in God is Real, Weekly Challenge

I found this challenge in “Top 50 Questions Christians Can’t Answer.” Can you answer it?

God wants everyone to worship and follow him and, if they don’t, they burn in hell for all eternity. What does this type of attitude say about his character? By definition, he would be described as a tyrant.

Is God a tyrant? What do you think? How would you respond? Leave your ideas in the comments below, and we’ll hear from Brett on Thursday.

With all the violence going on in the Middle East, people believe Muslims are justified in this behavior. But they also point out that Christianity has its own form of jihad. I responded to this claim last year.

Don’t forget if you’re in the Southern California area that you can attend a free intelligent design conference tomorrow. Speakers from the Discovery Institute will be teaching. Get more details here or register here.

I’m going!

I respond to this week’s challenge that claims Leviticus 17:11 teaches that life begins only after blood is in the human embryo. This challenge is intended to undermine a Christian’s pro-life view.

Challenge: The Life Is in the Blood

Posted: September 11, 2012 by Amy Hall in Do the Right Thing, Weekly Challenge

The challenge this week was suggested by one of our readers:

I have heard pro-choicers argue that we shouldn’t believe life begins at conception because Leviticus 17:11 says the life is in the blood. I know they have missed some things because the context is about sacrifices, but what is a good response to this?

What do you think? How would you answer this challenge? Give it your best shot, and then we’ll hear from Alan on Thursday.

Watch Muslims Lead People to Islam

There were 500 Muslims at the Olympics in London this summer who were leading people to recite the shahada (the Christian equivalent of the sinner’s prayer). They even claimed their efforts were more peaceful and personable than the Christians who were there preaching.

Here’s the key question (which the late Walter Martin used to ask): “Are you willing to do for the truth what the cults do for a lie?” Well, Islam is not a cult as we or Walter Martin defined it, but the point still applies. Muslims don’t have the truth and yet look at what they’re doing. Now, I know there are many Christians reaching out to non-believers so I’m not ignoring that. But sometimes seeing videos like this gets me more motivated because it helps me see what’s at stake.
