Matthew Tingblad, 26 June, 2021

Hace algún tiempo, tuve la oportunidad de sentarme con alguien que quería ver si podía ayudarlo a recuperar su fe en el cristianismo; la cual había perdido hacía mucho tiempo.

How Can I Believe Christianity ?

Matthew Tingblad, 26 June, 2021

Some time ago, I had the chance to sit down with someone who wanted to see if I could help him recover his long-lost faith in Christianity. As we talked, I found myself confused about what he was actually struggling to believe in. Questions such as the existence of God,… Read more »

Didn’t Jesus Chastise Thomas for Wanting Evidence?

Matthew Tingblad, 19 June, 2021

At Josh McDowell Ministry, we seek to help people understand why belief in Christianity is true, because it’s based on a real person, Jesus, and events surrounding Him 2000 years ago.

¿Por Qué Dios Nos Manda a Alabarlo?

Matthew Tingblad, 29 January, 2021

Does the Bible Disempower Women? (Part 2)

Matthew Tingblad, 3 June, 2020

In my previous post I addressed the concern that the presence of women in the Bible is underrepresented.

I also pointed to many passages in the Bible that elevate… Read more »

Matthew Tingblad, 6 May, 2020

Matthew Tingblad, 29 April, 2020

What is “Christian apologetics”? It’s the activity of providing a rational basis for belief in the Christian faith.When we seek to demonstrate that God exists, that the resurrection of Jesus actually happened, or that the Bible is historically reliable, we are doing the work of Christian apologetics. Is Christian apologetics… Read more »

Why does God Keep Satan Around?

Matthew Tingblad, 20 April, 2020

Why Did God Create Humanity?

Matthew Tingblad, 6 April, 2020

God knew that not all of humanity would accept Him, so why did He create us? When God created humanity, He considered it “very good” (Genesis 1:31). God’s assessment can be difficult to understand, considering what people have done against God from the start. You and I, as objects of… Read more »

Has the Bible Been Altered Over the Centuries?

Matthew Tingblad, 2 April, 2020

To declare that the Bible has been “altered” over the centuries could mean a number of different things.

When most people say… Read more »

Could the Gospel Writers Know What Jesus Actually said?

Matthew Tingblad, 18 March, 2020

There was a long period of time between the life of Jesus and the composition of the four Gospels in the Bible. Even when we take conservative estimates for their dating, the earliest we typically see is the book of Mark, written around AD 55-70, about the time the apostle… Read more »

Isn’t the Bible Full of Disagreements?

Matthew Tingblad, 11 March, 2020

One common concern that skeptics have about the Bible is that it doesn’t line up. That it’s full of disagreements, which they say proves that it’s a man-made document, not inspired by God. This question can lead to very murky conversations; however, because people mean different things when they discuss… Read more »

Should Apologists Quote the Bible When Trying to Prove it?

Matthew Tingblad, 27 February, 2020

There’s a common objection apologists hear from skeptics: “You can’t quote the Bible to prove the Bible.”  The answer to that? Yes and no. Sometimes people try to prove the Bible is true by using what the Bible says concerning itself. 2 Timothy 3:16-17, for example, says that all Scripture… Read more »

Why Believe in God if I Can’t Feel, Hear, or See Him?

Matthew Tingblad, 21 February, 2020

It’s easy to believe in things that we can perceive through our senses. But the sensory things of this world aren’t the only things we believe in, right? We believe in many things that can’t be felt, seen, or heard. Consider the following. We believe in: Scientific theories, such as… Read more »

What Are the Top Religious Philosophies?

Matthew Tingblad, 28 August, 2019

A.W. Tozer, a famous Christian thinker, is known for penning the words, “What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us.” He uses this statement to open his book Knowledge of the Holy. Even if you are not a Christian, there is much… Read more »
