Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed



Upon a recommendation, I was finally able to view Ben Stein's controversial documentary, Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed. Admittedly, when the film was released I was very skeptical about all the hype that surrounded it and was cautious not to endorse or denounce the picture until I was able to view it for myself.

Positive

With all of the negative media and venomous comments that have been made from the Neo-Darwinist camp regarding the film, I was expecting the movie to be more of a propaganda piece. However, I was surprised to see Stein sit down with intelligent men and women on both sides of the debate.

Stein seemed to be genuinely concerned about the bias that exists within the scientific community (as I am) and simply wanted to present another viewpoint that is not often seen in the mainstream media.

Clearly, Stein favored the IDers (hence why he made the film) however, I did not feel that he tried to demonize those in the opposing camp. I am sure that many of those interviewed said numerous things that they would have preferred be included or discarded from the documentary, however, atheists don't seem to mind this when Bill Maher does it.

Negative

I would have liked to have seen both the IDers and the Darwinists discuss more of the actually evidence that is in question during the documentary. However, I realize that Stein wanted to make his point in an entertaining manner.

And, on a lesser note, I could have done without some of the music during the interviews.

Conclusion

Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed is worth seeing regardless of where you stand in the debate between Intelligent Design and Darwinism. Stein makes his point in humorous ways and I really enjoyed watching him sit down with numerous scholars and scientists that I read.

After watching the film, I couldn't help but reflect back to when Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code was the center of controversy. I recall debating with someone who quipped, "What are you so worried about? If what you believe is true, it shouldn't matter. Besides, it's just fiction."

I also remember someone suggesting that the fact that so many "religious folks" were worried about the film served to prove that they are really insecure about what they believe.

Perhaps they were right; because the fact that so many Neo-Darwinists are so worried and upset about Expelled leads me to wonder: "If what you believe is true, it shouldn't matter."

Courage and Godspeed,

How to be an Intellectually Fulfilled Atheist(or not)


Author William A. Dembski worked closely as an advisor with the producers of the Spring 2008 documentary Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed starring Ben Stein. How to Be an Intellectually Fulfilled Atheist (Or Not) is the intellectual argument that helped inform significant elements of the movie. The book is co-authored by biologist Jonathan Wells, author of Icons of Evolution.

Common Objection #2

Objection: "(Religion is) the most potent source of human conflict, past and present." [1]

Whether it be your next door neighbor or one of the popular "New Atheists," the claim that religion is the main cause of humanities ills is becoming more and more common and the non-believer seems all to anxious to bombard the believer with such accusations as, "What about all the violence religion has caused?"

If those who attack Christianity continue to insist that the ordinary follower of Christ, who has never done anyone harm, must answer for the crimes committed by self-proclaimed Christians in history, then likewise atheists do not get to turn a blind eye to the brutality caused by their beliefs in recent world history.

In Dinesh D’Souza’s book, What's so Great about Christianity?, he demonstrates that while religion has been guilty of violent acts, its the atheist who has much more to answer for:

“Even taking higher population levels into account, atheist violence surpasses religious violence by staggering proportions. Here is a rough calculation. The world’s population rose from around 500 million in 1450 AD to 2.5 billion in 1950, a fivefold increase. Taken together, the Crusades, the Inquisition, and the witch burnings killed approximately 200,000 people. Adjusting for the increase in population, that’s the equivalent of one million deaths today. Even so, these deaths caused by Christian rulers over a five-hundred-year period amount to only 1 percent of the deaths caused by Stalin, Hitler, and Mao in the space of a few decades.” (2)

When one truly gives their life to Jesus Christ and accepts His invitation to follow, the fruit that results is love, peace, forgiveness, giving, etc.

German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche predicted that the “death of God” movement would lead to the bloodiest century in history and a universal madness. Nietzsche was willing to admit that atheism is devoid of conscience.

Authors Christopher Hitchens and Sam Harris, who continue to preach the “moral superiority” of atheism, would do well to reexamine the history of godless governments.

But wait! Wasn't Hitler a Christian? To get an idea of how Hitler really felt about Christianity, see here.

The New York Times Bestseller, The Shack



Admittedly, I am not a big reader of fictional novels, Christian or otherwise. However, I would have to be living under a rock not to hear about the latest hit novel, The Shack by William P. Young. It has been suggested, by pastor and author Eugene Peterson, that The Shack, "has the potential to do for our generation what John Bunyan’s Pilgrim’s Progress did for his." However, others suggest that it does not parallel with sound biblical doctrine.

Theologian and philosopher, Dr. Norman Geisler, who's work I have benefit much from in the past, offers his treatment of the novel in his article, The Shack: Helpful or Heretical?.

Convoy of Hope


Yesterday was a humbling, emotionally exhausting day. I was one of the hundreds of followers of Jesus Christ who showed up at the Convoy of Hope that took place at E. Russell Hicks Middle School in Hagerstown, Maryland. Our goal and mission was to provide for hurting families in the area and share the blessed hope that we have in Jesus Christ with whoever needed to hear it.

Reflecting on the day, I remembered the lady who asked for prayer for her husband who is dying of diabetes and has no health care.

Or the gentlemen who shared that his kidneys were failing and that he was on a list for a donor; upon finishing a prayer with him, he fell into my arms and wept. I could tell he had not felt loved in quite sometime. As I walked him out to where he could get his free groceries, he continued to thank me, tears rolling down his face.

I recall the young lady and her 1 1/2 year old son who were on there own. She shared about her past drug addiction and about how God had used her little boy to "straighten her out."

And the dear lady who accepted Christ as her Savior and with tears in her eyes, hugged me. She was a "New creation" (2 Cor. 5:17).

Upon returning home, and scooping up my oldest daughter into my arms, I could not help but weep for those whom I had met and prayed with that day. I could not help but admit to being spoiled. I remarked to my wife, "The last time I had to go to the doctor, I complained about how long I had to sit in the waiting room. Today, I met people who were dying and didn't have health care."

I was challenged by many of the things I had seen and heard at the Convoy of Hope and a few observations really stayed with me:

1) I met people that were hungry, poor, cold, sick, and/or broken, yet they longed for one thing more than any other: God. They longed for His comfort, His strength, and His provision. Their situation, in most cases, did not lead them to curse God, but to cry out to Him.

2) With all that the guests received that day- food, entertainment, haircuts, medical checks, and job opportunities- they seemed to appreciate one thing more than any other- that someone cared for them and took the time to show them love.

I was told, by a fellow worker, of a lady who had 9 to 10 of her family members with her and was able to get a free, professionally done, family portrait taken. As she walked into the prayer tent she was crying and remarked, "We (her family) have never had the chance to have a picture done all together, professionally like this." I wonder if she is still looking at the picture at this very moment.

Even more so, I wonder if God was watching and smiling because His church was together, being the body of Christ to those in need.

I was honored to be a part of the Convoy of Hope and sincerely hope that the guests gained as much from the experience as I did.

Courage and Godspeed,

Common Objections

In an effort to provide answers for those desiring truth, I am starting an ongoing series entitled Common Objections. In this series, I will be providing thoughts of my own, scholarly articles, and/or quotes from credible sources, addressing some of the more common objections to the Christian faith.

It is impossible for Truthbomb to cover every topic that is brought to our attention, therefore, this is a way in which readers can benefit from our work, as well as the work of other apologists and thinkers.

For our first objection in the series, we take a look at the growing claim made by atheists that they simple "lack belief in God." I myself have been entertained in the past listening to atheists in debates, defending the atheist position, but then are unwilling to admit that they should have to provide positive evidence that atheism is true!

Apologist Matthew Slick at the Christian Apologetics and Research Ministry, takes a look at the claim more and more atheists are making: "I lack belief in God."

Bill Maher- What Say You?

Author Dinesh D'Souza has debated the likes of Christopher Hitchens, Michael Shermer, and Daniel Dennett. He has also written a book entitled What's So Great about Christianity. As readers of Truthbomb know, I have not always agreed with Mr. D'Souza on everything, however, I'm glad to see that Mr. D'Souza has issued a challenge to Bill Maher, star of the latest attempt to bash religion, Religulous, to debate.

In his recent article, Why Bill Maher Made Me Laugh, Dinesh issues the following challenge:

"Maher simply ignores the good evidence on the other side. I would love to debate him on his show, and can easily show that Maher’s self-image as an intellectual is largely bogus. It is only in the company of obvious charlatans and simpletons that Maher comes off as the bright guy. And because he cannot stand up to real opposition, I doubt that Maher has the guts to take me up on this offer. Ultimately, he is an intellectual coward who relies on the argumentum ad ignorantium—the argument that relies on the ignorance of the audience."

In Maher's defense, I have read that he has had Christian apologist Frank Turek on his show, Politically Incorrect, in the past.

So, Mr. Maher, we a Truthbomb Apologetics want to know: What Say You? Will you accept Dinesh's challenge to debate?

Courage and Godspeed,

Truthbomb August/September Newsletter


Is Jesus the Only Way to Heaven?

Greetings and I hope all is well with you and yours! If you’ll remember (I realize it’s been awhile…new dad and all!), in our last newsletter we mentioned that we would be critiquing Eckhart Tolle’s book, A New Earth. However, after reading the first 3-4 chapters of the book, it became apparent that a more pressing issue arose from Tolle’s writings; namely, Jesus Christ’s claim that He, and He alone, is the sole source of salvation (Jn. 14:6). This claim will be our focus this month.

The fact that Jesus Christ Himself claimed to be the exclusive way to salvation and eternal life has long offended those who do not believe in Christ and even some who do! Those who embrace this claim most often earn labels such as intolerant, narrow-minded, or even bigoted.

However, one must ask: What if Jesus' claim to be the exclusive way to God is logical? What if it’s verifiable? Then, the belief that Jesus is the only way to God would be rendered essential.
The answers to these questions undoubtedly have tremendous implications on one’s life regardless if they acknowledge it or not. Truth does not change simply because it’s ignored, scoffed at, or disbelieved.

Our purpose in this month’s newsletter is to examine the claims of Jesus Christ and to assess if His exclusive claim to salvation is logical and verifiable and then, as a result, essential.

Clearing Away the Clutter-Nonsense to Sense

When discussing the exclusive claim Jesus Himself made (John 14:6), it is amazing to hear some of the unreasonable statements those opposed to this belief will make in an effort to avoid taking a definitive stance on the issue.

Before examining the question of Jesus and His claims, it’s important to clear away some false assertions so that the question being pondered can be investigated without hindrance. Please consider the logical bankruptcy of the following statements that often come up when discussing Jesus, religion, or Christ’s claim to exclusivity:

a) “There is no absolute truth in religion.”
Are you absolutely sure about that? Is this not an absolute truth claim about all religions?


b) “That may be true for you, but it’s not true for me.”
Okay, is this statement only true for you or true for me as well?

Philosopher Paul Copan exposes the fallacy of this belief beautifully:

“If my belief is only true for me, then why isn’t your belief only true for you? Aren’t you saying you want me to believe the same thing you do? You say that no belief is true for everyone, but you want everyone to believe what you do.

You’re making universal claims that relativism is true and absolutism is false. You can’t in the same breath say, ‘Nothing is universally true’ and ‘My view is universally true.’ Relativism falsifies itself. It claims there is one position that is true – relativism!

You’re applying your view to everyone but yourself. You expect others to believe your views (the ‘self-excepting fallacy’).” [1]

c) “I don’t believe you can examine religious claims logically.”
Did you come to this conclusion logically or illogically?

d) “I believe that everyone has a right to believe in whatever they want.”
I completely agree! However, I also have to right to believe that they are wrong! Further, does this apply to morality? Does someone have the right to believe murder is okay and is therefore justified? I think not.

e) “It doesn’t matter what someone believes as long as they are sincere.”

Sincerity is not a good test for truth. The terrorists who flew planes into the World Trade Center on 9/11 were very sincere, however, does this validate their actions? Of course not. Someone can be very sincere, but be sincerely wrong. Beliefs have consequences and clearly it does matter what we accept as true.

f) “I believe that all religions are equally true or valid.”

Those who claim that all religions lead to God are basing this conviction in pure sentiment, not in logic or truth.

Religions that teach opposite truth claims cannot be true at the same time. For example, the Bible tells us that Jesus died upon the cross (John 19:33), while the Koran, Islam’s “sacred scriptures,” asserts that He did not (Surah 4:157-158). No one in their right mind would claim that both could be true at the same time, however, when someone claims that Islam and Christianity are equally true belief systems, this is precisely what they are saying!

Orthodox Christianity claims to be the true religion. Islam and Buddhism, in spite of the fact that on the surface they claim to be diverse, declare to be true. Since there are mutually exclusive truth claims among these religions, it is obvious that they cannot all be correct.

Further, some religions are monotheistic (belief in only one God), such as, traditional Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Others are pantheistic (the belief that God and the material world are one and the same thing and that God is present in everything), such as, Hinduism, Zen Buddhism, and Christian Science. Paganism, neo-paganism, and Mormonism are polytheistic (the worship of or belief in more than one deity, especially several deities). These varying views of God are irreconcilable. [2]

Further, as Christian apologist Ravi Zacharias puts it, “The statement that Christians are arrogant by claiming exclusivity ignores the reality that every other major religion does as well. So when people talk of arrogance, this cannot be a logical attack they are making.” [3] Even the religion that claims to accept all religious truth claims does not allow for someone to believe that there is only one way. Therefore, even they are being exclusive; by definition, truth must be exclusive.

If one truly desires to discover the truth about God, Jesus Christ, and the Bible as it relates to other belief systems, he or she must be willing to consider which, if any, of these world views, offers the answers to life's most important questions, corresponds with reality, offers evidence to support it’s claims, and works when put into practice. Jesus Christ stands unique in every way when compared to the other so-called religious leaders of the past and present for various demonstrable reasons.

The Objectivity of Christ’s Resurrection


Before examining the radically unique claims of Jesus Christ, it’s important to point out that Jesus and His bodily resurrection from the dead provides us with an objective test for the truth of Christianity.

Dr. Gary Habermas and Mike Licona, in their book, The Case for the Resurrection, explain:

"We have the external test that, if Jesus actually rose from the dead, it appears the truth of Christianity is confirmed and all adherents to conflicting beliefs must reassess whether their assurance came from a spirit other than God's or was the result of self-delusion." [5]

Indeed, if we have good reason to believe Jesus rose from the dead then His words and claims stand authoritative over all others, past and present.

For those who may have missed our past newsletters on the evidence for the resurrection, please see here and here.

The Uniqueness of Jesus Christ

Jesus Christ was unique in that he alone, of all who ever lived, was both God and man. The New Testament teaches the fully unified deity and humanity of Christ. This claim alone makes him unique above all other religious leaders or persons who have ever lived, and it can be backed up with factual evidence.

Historian Gary Habermas offers numerous other examples of the uniqueness of Jesus:

“Jesus claimed dual titles of divinity. Particularly, He said He was both the Son of God (Mt. 11:27) and the Son of Man (Mark 2:10-11). He spoke of His Father in familiar ways (Mk 13:36) and even claimed to forgive sins, for which He was charged with blasphemy (Mk 2:5-7).

In perhaps the clearest indication of His claims about Himself, when the high priest asked Jesus if He was the Christ, the Son of God, Jesus plainly declared that He was. Then He further asserted that He was also the Son of Man who would co reign on God’s throne and come on the clouds in judgment. The high priest pronounced these claims blasphemy (Mk 14:61-64).

These sayings of Jesus were recorded in documents that were written just decades after the events, and there are strong reasons to hold that all were composed by authors who were close to the occurrences. Moreover, many of the individual passages exhibit earmarks of historicity. Last, very early creedal texts (e.g., Ac 2:36; Rm 1:3-4; 10:9) also apply titles of deity to Jesus Christ.

Many religious teachers have claimed to present God’s way. But Jesus declared not only that He was initiating God’s path of salvation (Mk 1:15-20) but also that what His hearers did specifically with Him determined their eternal destiny (Mt 10:37-40; 19:23-30). Further, of these religious founders, only Jesus taught that His death would serve as a payment for human sin, achieving what we could not (Mk 10:45; 14:22-25).

Additionally, only Jesus has miracles reported of Him by early sources. Most importantly, according to the Gospels, Jesus taught that His resurrection from the dead would be the sign that evidenced the truth of His message (Mt. 12:38-42; 16:1-4; 1 Pt 1:3-6). After all, dead men do not do much! So if Jesus was raised, God must have performed the event in order to approve Jesus’ message (Ac 2:22-24; 17:30-31).” [6]

For exhaustive documentation regarding the uniqeness of Christ and how He compares to other religious leaders, please see here.

Does this mean that all other religions are completely false?

No! As long as these truths are not contradictory to God’s revealed truth, the Bible.

Author Michael Green, in his book, Avoiding Jesus, explains:

“Christians welcome truth wherever it is found. As you look into other faiths, you will find an enormous amount that is true and worthy, that is moral and good, as well as much that is not. But you will not find anything that is good and true that cannot be found in Christ. You will not hear from them about a God who cares for you enough to die for you, to rise from the grave as a pledge of your future, and to be willing to come and share your life with you. You will not find in any other faith a revelation of God in fully personal terms, a rescue of man from his self-centeredness and sin, and the offer by this God to come and indwell the life of every man, woman, or child who welcomes him.” [4]

All truth, regardless of where it is found, originates with and comes from God alone and His only begotten Son (John 3:16), Jesus Christ.

Conclusion

1) It simply is not important whether or not Jesus’ claim to exclusivity is narrow-minded or not. What matters is if it’s true.

2) Claiming that all religions are equally valid is an illogical statement due to the fact they teach contradictory doctrines.

3) Jesus Christ was/is unique in His life, death, virtuous life, resurrection, and teachings. When He is compared alongside other major religious leaders, He alone stands utterly and completely unique.

4) The resurrection of Jesus Christ offers the inquirer an objective test to evaluate the truth claims of Christianity. If we have good reason to believe Jesus rose from the dead, then He has proved that He is who He said He was and that His words have authority over all others.

5) Truth can be found in various places. To the follower of Christ, truth is whatever doesn’t contradict the Word of God, the Bible. This is a much more opened minded view than the numerous atheists that claim all religions offer nothing of real value.

Book Review


The Jesus of Suburbia
by Mike Erre

Positive


When I picked-up this book and saw that J.P. Moreland had written a recommendation for it, I was immediately interested. I believe Moreland to be one of the bravest thinkers within Christendom today. Needless to say, I was not disappointed.

Mike Erre has had his fill of “American Christianity” and isn’t afraid to let you know:
“We have never really embraced the message and movement of Jesus Christ as a call to revolution. Instead, we have gotten comfortable with a watered-down, whitewashed, religiously safe version of him” [Intro].

I could not agree more and for those who are seeking Jesus among the 10 million dollar, plane flying evangelists or the self-help Christianity that permeates even Christian bookstores, The Jesus of Suburbia is a great place to start your search. One finds the Jesus of the Gospels alive and well throughout the book and we are reminded that Jesus is anything but safe. If obeyed, He will turn your life upside down.

Negative


I was disappointed with Erre’s treatment of apologetics in this book. Erre himself admits that he “became fascinated by the branch of Christian thought called apologetics…I learned that you didn’t have to be an idiot to believe in Jesus” [p.176].

However, he goes on to say:

“…issues like the existence of God, the possibility of miracles, and the inspiration of the Bible are no longer the primary objections people have to faith in Christ…”

I could not disagree more! The so-called New Atheists have waged war against belief in God, the Bible, and Jesus Himself. There is a desperate need for intellectuals within the body of Christ now, more than ever.

Conclusion


Overall, this book was a great read. I recommend it to those who are asking the question, “What does it really mean to follow Jesus Christ in this modern age?” Further, I recommend it to those that have bought the argument that Christianity is evil. This book will demonstrate that Jesus Christ, the Jesus of the Gospels, has started a revolution of love and He is inviting us all to join up!

Article of the Month


Brian Auten offers his Case for Apologetics and the case is opened and shut! In this outstanding defense, Brian demonstrates why apologetics is historical, biblical, and necessary.

Website of the Month

For those who have friends and/or relatives caught up in the trap of New Age beliefs, this site will prove to be a great resource. I also recommend the author’s treatment of Tolle’s New Earth.

Truthbomb Apologetics Update


With Truthbomb still being in it’s infancy, it seems that we are constantly seeing ways that we can improve our ministry efforts. Next month, Truthbomb will release it’s new Mission Statement and begin a new direction. Please pray for the ministry!

Apologetic Verse for the Month


“Do nothing out of rivalry or conceit, but in humility consider others as more important than yourselves” (Philippians 2:3; CSB).

It is easy for one who is involved in Christian Apologetics to strive to “slam-dunk” the argument in order to communicate one’s point. However, this verse reminds us that humility is the attitude in which we should approach others.

Prayer Requests


1) Truthbomb Apologetics Ministry- Pray that God will guide us in the material we present and help us to reach those who are truly seeking answers about God, Jesus, and His Word. We must have God leading the way!
2) Pray for the Convoy of Hope taking place at E. Russell Hicks in Hagerstown on October 18th, 2008.
3) Pray for the upcoming election.
4) Pray for those you know that do not know Christ.
5) Please pray for me as I am teaching a class at Faith Christian Fellowship on Evangelism.

Courage and Godspeed,
Chad A. Gross

"Religulous" Resource Page


In an earlier post I mentioned that we would have more for you on Bill Maher's "film" entitled Religulous. In the film, Maher sets out to seemingly question people all over the world and to find out why they believe in God, etc.

There are many thoughts and opinions swirling around the Internet, both positive and negative, however, most agree that Maher's film is nothing more than a witty comedian poking fun at those who believe in God, miracles, etc.

I myself am going to be addressing some of tactics Maher implements in the film in an upcoming post, however, for now I wanted to offer these reviews that I found informative:

2) Mind of Maher by Peter Suderman

3) Religulous- Review by Brett McCracken at Christianity Today Movies

4) Maher's Religulous a Call to Arms by Colleen Raezler



7) Mighty Maher Strikes Out by L. Brent Bozell, III of the Media Research Center

8) Religulous reviewed by Rev. Bryan Griem

9) Religulous reveiwed by Paul Asay

10) Religupigulous by J.P. Holding (Updated and Highly Recommended)

I believe that this film merely serves to confirm what many within the body of Christ have been saying for a long time- we need to know what we believe and why we believe it!

Finally, remember the words of Jude, written "to those who are called, beloved in God the Father and kept for Jesus Christ" (Jude 1:1b):

"But you must remember, beloved, the predictions of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ. They said to you, "In the last time there will be scoffers, following their own ungodly passions. It is these who cause divisions, worldly people, devoid of Spirit. But you, beloved, build yourselves up in your most holy faith; pray in the Holy Spirit; keep yourselves in the love of God, waiting for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ that leads to eternal life" (Jude 1:17-21).

Courage and Godspeed,
