Evil Proves the Existence of God

Evil Proves the Existence of God Whenever something terrible happens on the news, like the murder of innocent people, atheists often rage and say, “This proves that God does not exist, because if God is good and all-powerful, then He would stop all of the evil in the world.” The truth, however, is exactly 180 degrees in the opposite direction. The existence of evil in the world can only be adequately explained within Theism...

Who are the Most Influential Evangelicals in America? (2015)

Who are the Most Influential Evangelicals in America? (2015) Who are the most influential Evangelicals in America?

Should We Expect Non-Christians to be Moral?

Should We Expect Non-Christians to be Moral? I have been hearing a lot lately, “We shouldn’t expect non-Christians to live like Christians. They don’t know God, so they sin. That’s what sinners do. Stop expecting them to be moral.” Or even, “God’s laws apply to Christians, but they don’t apply to non-Christians.” Is this thinking Biblical? Should we refuse to mention to non-Christians that they...

Thoughts on 30+ Years of Homeschooling — w/ Chris Davis As a homeschooled graduate who began homeschooling in the late 1970s and 1980s, I have a desire to introduce current homeschoolers to their history. Chris Davis was one of the pioneers of the modern-day homeschooling movement. He was the founder of The Elijah Company, one of most successful homeschooling book catalogs of the 1980s and 90s, is an author of several books on home education, and is the...
