Letter to An Aspiring Christian Apologist | J Warner Wallace

Reasoned Cases for Christ

unnamed

I don’t have the experience, knowledge or broad understanding that J Warner Wallace possesses but I can recognize sound biblical advice when I see it. Every Christian should be a Christian Case Maker, regardless of how unprepared we may think we may be. It’s much like learning to ride a bike, you’ll make mistakes but after due time and some dedicated effort and lots of Bible study and heart felt prayer, you can make a difference, both to others and also to yourself. This is a win win opportunity and you will learn much more than you have ever imagined.

This is a WordPress repost of J Warner Wallace’s advice to an aspiring Christian Apologist. Please take it to heart.


I was encouraged by your note and your desire to become a Christian apologist. I must confess that I hate that word, “apologist” and wish we would decide, as a…

Review: A Tale of Two Sons by John F. MacArthur Jr.

The Domain for Truth

I’m posting this review after my discussion with Lee Duigon in his post ‘Behold the Power’ (2016) in which we were talking about John MacArthur’s insight into the Parables in the Gospels.  As a result of that discussion I was looking for my review of MacArthur’s book A Tale of Two Sons and realized that though I read the book in 2011 I didn’t post it here before!  So here it is, with an updated and expanded review!

John MacArthur. A Tale of Two Sons by John F. MacArthur Jr..  Nashville, TN: Thomas Nelson Publishing Company, April 1st 2008.  221 pp.

5 out of 5

This is an excellent book by Pastor and Teacher John MacArthur.  Here in this book MacArthur gives meticulous care to the details in Jesus’ famous parable of what is often called the Prodigal Son.  MacArthur’s exposition brings out insights from the text, the context…

November 6th, 2018 Los Angeles County Christian Conservative Voter’s Guide

The Domain for Truth

We have quite a stream of readers of our blog from Southern California and I thought it would be helpful to post this.

This is courtesy of Craig Huey of Election Forum (HT).

I have gotten less political over the years and while I do not believe salvation or the kingdom of God is achieved by political means nevertheless I believe Christians must be informed so that when they practice the privilege of voting in the United States they vote not against biblical principles but as much as possible consistent with it.  Over the years California legislature has become increasingly tyrannical against Christians values in the name of “tolerance” such as Assembly Bill 2943 which fortunately was shelved and was a huge answer prayer.

So here’s the voter’s guide for Los Angeles County for November 6th, 2018:

Civil War and the Coming New World Order

Revelation310

by Pete Garcia

This is quite a difficult and sensitive topic being discussed here today. But I feel that it is warranted, given what we are seeing play out before us. I don’t have any particular scriptural basis for it, other than it being more of an observation of the times.  If anything, I would liken it to the condition Jesus laid out for His disciples when asked what the signs of the end would be when He said…

Nation (ethnos) would rise against nation (ethnos), kingdom (political power) against kingdom        (political power) …and the love of many will wax cold… (Matt. 24:7, 12)

There is a storm brewing in our land, and has been for some time.  Those dark, foreboding clouds have always been on the horizon, but now they are overhead and our grumbling like a Kansas thunderstorm laden with the potential for torrential rains, lightening, and tornados…

A Most Important Letter From Hal Lindsey To America — Absolute Truth from the Word of God

October 5, 2018 It is almost impossible to overstate the importance of the crossroads at which we stand today in America. The unexpected election of Donald Trump forced into open view the truth about the “fundamental change” that has occurred in our nation during the last few years. It revealed unacknowledged corruption in our government’s […]
