The Muslim Times

Written and collected by Zia H Shah MD, Chief Editor of the Muslim Times The best way to demystify Trinity and other dogma of Christianity, where they differ from Judaism and Islam, is to study their history. Trinity should be studied in the history of the first six Ecumenical Councils and even beyond. Let me […]

Nerdy stuff from David Brainerd's brain

A collection of some comments of Rey on Calvinism, from 2009, found on a typical Calvinist PR post (here) where the Calvinist is arguing that only some Calvinists are hyper Calvinists, blah blah blah, and they need to “calm down” because they are making all Calvinists look bad.  Rey explains how not only are ALL […]

The Amateur Exegete

Below is my full translation of the first chapter in Mark’s Gospel. It is still in some ways a very raw translation but it will serve as the launching pad for work on my commentary on Mark. I plan on doing more revisions to the text as time goes on, especially since my preference to […]

Enough Light

You are likely familiar with the “trilemma” popularized by CS Lewis and others after him – that Jesus was a liar, lunatic, or Lord. Lord seems the clearest option! Case closed. Right? Yet… There is a fourth “L” option – Jesus became a legend. I think it is important that Christians have a basic familiarity […]

The Amateur Exegete

“For if the dead are not raised, then Christ has not been raised. If Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile and you are still in your sins. Then those also who have died in Christ have perished. If for this life only we have hoped in Christ, we are of all people […]

What books belong in the Bible? How do we know we have the right books in the Bible? Do we have an authoritative list of books, or a list of authoritative books? With so many today (even pastors) questioning the authority of the Bible, this question is more valuable than ever.  The questions we will […]

Pondering Truth

I have listened a lot to Bart Ehrman, Dale B. Martin (Yale), and Richard Carrier. I think between the three of them, there is ample information to understand how Christianity got started and how it developed. Richard Carrier shows that the themes of Christianity with its apocalyptic emphasis; that these themes were common at the […]

Sid Brixton's TankOBrain!

Intro: On The Thinking Atheist Seth Andrews read the intro to Bert Ehrman’s book, The Triumph of Christianity.  Throughout this post, I am only responding to the intro of the book. Boil Down I don’t buy the Argument from Embarrassment. Triumphalist movements strip away the mundane contexts of their origin so that the post hoc […]

In the latter half of my Christian life, my circles shifted farther and farther charismatic. I was always a Biblical literalist, but the crazy dial was set relatively low, or at least as low as it can be for a young earth creationist. After years of practicing fairly conservatively, my friends and family embraced things […]

The Christmas narratives in Matthew and Luke are supposed to contain fulfilled prophecies. However, these two Gospel accounts of Jesus’ birth are not only discrepant, but conflict with our historical knowledge.  It’s common for Christians to point to biblical prophecies as compelling evidence for us to consider, and Jesus himself comes up often. They insist […]
