First what part of us as a human person is involved with loving God?

As a Christian this might be an important question to think about: What is the difference between remorse and repentance?

Both repentance and remorse is associated with the emotions of sorrow. But there are differences between the two.  So what are those differences?

If you are a Christian for a significant amount of time you would have no doubt ran into people who called themselves Christians but denied the essential doctrine of Christ being God and also the doctrine of the Trinity.  No doubt they will throw out verses and argument to say that Jesus was not God.  Is there a witty ditty one can have that helps us remember the principle of how to respond to such doctrinal attack on the person and work of Christ?

Two months ago I wrote “Problems with Reza Aslan’s Rejection of Jesus Before Pilate Part 1.”  This is the second installment.

Reza Aslan has gotten into more controversies since my last post.  He’s managed to get himself kicked out of CNN. And that reminded me to work on part 2 of this series.

Aslan’s most popular book is Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth.

Reza Aslan questions the historicity of Jesus being before Pilate as the Gospels presented it.  On page 148 of the book he writes:

Either the threat posed by Jesus to the stability of Jerusalem is so great that he is one of only a handful of Jews to have the opportunity to stand before Pilate and answer for his alleged crimes, or else the so-called trial before Pilate is a fabrication.  There is reason to suspect that latter. (148)

We are examining his “reason” to question the Gospels’ accounts of Jesus appearing before Pilate.  In part 1 I pointed out the problem with Aslan’s academic credentials and also refuted Aslan’s argument based upon Aslan’s assertion that Pilate was one who was not for trials.  Here in this post I want to look at another of Aslan’s “reason.”

Sam Shamoun has two videos and a couple of posts on his blog critiquing Inglesia Ni Cristo arguments that Jesus is not God from the James White debate with Iglesia Ni Cristo apologist Joe Ventilacion.

It’s worth praying that God would use these resources knowing that this group is the third largest religion in the Philippines.

Here’s the first video:

Happy Mother’s Day!

On this day many in America will be honoring their mothers.  As Christians we must live out what God wants that we honor our parents.

I know Resurrection Sunday/Easter was last month but I’m still on a spiritual high after preaching the whole month of April on the death and resurrection of Christ.  There’s some famous final words of Jesus on the cross.

But I think there’s one set that we often miss over.  And its totally appropriate on Mother’s Day.

Last month I posted Who Is God? Trinity Debate: Dr. James White vs Bro. Joe Ventilacion.  This was a debate between Christian apologist James White and a defender of the cult Iglesia ni Cristo.

Iglesia ni Cristo denies the deity of Christ.  In the comment section of my post someone introduced some arguments and verses against the divinity of Christ. In this post I want address one of the commentator’s argument:

God dies not get tired Isa40:28 . Christ got tired ,John 4:6 .

Isaiah 40:28 states “Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth Does not become weary or tired. His understanding is inscrutable.

John 4:6 states “and Jacob’s well was there. So Jesus, being wearied from His journey, was sitting thus by the well. It was about the sixth hour.

Does the fact that Jesus got tired meant that Jesus was not Divine?  I don’t think so let me explain.
