Who are the Noahides? Over the last 30 years, there has been this movement among Jewish apologists. They claim that God does not want everyone to be Jewish, however God apparently wants Gentiles to follow seven laws that were given to Noah. A plain reading of the Bible shows that these laws weren’t given to Noah, however these laws exist throughout the Old Testament.
The Pharisees – The Enemies of God
When you engage in apologetics whether online or in person, you need to know the caliber of the enemy you’re dealing with. This has a major effect on how you then communicate. Do you ask more questions? How much charity do you use? What arguments do you use? Even that last question is answered by whom you’re debating.
Adam and Eve
Have you heard of the Emergent Church? It’s an ultra-liberal circle within Protestantism. In 2008, a young Evangelical woman named Kristen Scharold wrote the following in First Things regarding the Emergent Church movement:
And it should not be so counterintuitive that young evangelicals such as myself prefer theology rooted in tradition to a spirituality waffling in relativism. We want a story with a climax so profound that it leaves us worshiping God, not reducing him to fit into our cultural paradigm.

It’s been one week since American citizens elected Donald Trump to be their next President and therefore politics is on everyones mind. This blog is not political but I need to share a political experience that I once had.
Matthew Vines is getting pretty cocky these days. I found this talk of his online. It’s his last major talk and it sounds like it was given not too long after the Orlando shooting.
Believe it or not, I actually read his writings
Every year in October, we tend to hear a bit about Martin Luther. After all, when he nailed his 95 Theses to the Castle Church in Wittenberg Germany, it was October 31st. October 31, 1517 is traditionally referred to as the beginning of the Protestant “Reformation”. The reason why I put the word in quotation marks is because it is a mockery of the term. True Church reformers are St. Francis of Assisi, St. Catherine of Sienna and Pope Gregory VII. They actually made reforms in the Church and hence are far more worthy of the title than Luther, Calvin, Zwingli, Tyndale, Henry VIII or Servetus. Whether you support these men or not, I think we can all agree that it wasn’t a reformation.
Ever since the 1960’s, the enemies of God have been going after Pope Pius XII. After WWII many Jews thought of Pius XII as a hero. Even Israeli foreign minister Gold Meir upon the death of Pius XII said: “When fearful martyrdom came to our people in the decade of Nazi terror, the voice of the Pope was raised for the victims. The life of our times was enriched by a voice speaking out on the great moral truths above the tumult of daily conflict.”
God Judging Jerusalem
I recently read a great column by Canadian Pro-Life apologist Jonathan Van Maren who I’ve had the pleasure of meeting on several occasions. He has also recently published a book that I will be reviewing on the blog. The column from Van Maren can be found here:
It basically exposes how Michael Coren is extremely fake. I have written about Coren before and have reviewed his most recent book on my blog. It’s been painful watching what has happened to this man.
Star Wars: Bloodline

We all need a break from our busy lives from time to time. I can’t read Church history every time I pick up a book. We all need to relax and take a deep breath and enjoy life once it a while. We can do this by reading a novel, watching a good baseball game, or going to a movie.
On February 28, 2016 I was in my hometown at my parents house and watching the Oscars. At the very end of course is Best Picture. It happened to be Spotlight, a film that chronicles a team of Journalists exposing the ecclesial cover up of priests who had been abusing, molesting, and raping children.
