Darwinism and Racism

-Written by H.C. Felder

As a Christian African American, I am very familiar with atheist arguments that Christianity is a racist religion. They contend that it supports slavery and genocide. And although I agree that there have been many Christians who used the Bible as a weapon of race, neither the religion itself, nor the Bible as its foundation, are at all racist. However, what I find interesting is that these same atheist, rarely if ever acknowledge the racist roots of their belief system. The purpose of this paper is to expose Darwinism as being even more racist than their accusations against Christianity.


Proving the Bible is Divine By Examining Its Prophetic Writings

-Written by H.C. Felder

Is the Bible true? Is it really the word of God? Do not all religions have sacred scripture that is just as valid as the Bible? These are questions we have all asked ourselves, regardless of our religious affiliation, or lack thereof. These are very important questions. This article will demonstrate that the Bible is divine by looking at fulfilled Biblical prophecy.


A New Look at the Crusades

-Written by H.C. Felder

The Crusades are often portrayed as the ultimate example of everything that is wrong with the west in general and Christianity in particular. The Crusaders are accused of ushering in a horrible period of intolerance and violence at the hands of Christians and European imperialists. As popular as this belief is, it is not historically accurate. The purpose of this article is to give the historical yet politically incorrect version of the Crusades.


Responding to Arguments against the Existence of God Based on Evil

-Written by H.C. Felder

Throughout the history of western thought, numerous philosophers and great thinkers have struggled with what is known as The Problem of Evil. A number of influential philosophers have posited the incompatibility between the existence of God and the existence of evil. In this article, I will explore some of the most import and powerful arguments used to reject the co-existence of evil and the God and demonstrate that in actuality, there is nothing incompatible between the existence of evil and the existence of God.


Defending Biblical Inerrancy

-Written by H.C. Felder

There are a number of scholars who claim that Scripture is not "God-breathed." Some claim that it cannot be God-breathed because there is no God to breathe it. These scholars pride themselves on the academic knowledge and alleged scientific approach to the study of Scripture. They claim to have scientifically proved that that the Bible is a book written by a number of uninspired men over hundreds of years for their own selfish reasons. They developed what is known as the Document Hypothesis to explain the man-made origin of Scripture and reject divine involvement. This article will examine these charges against the Bible and demonstrate that their positions are based on unsubstantiated presuppostions.




Claims of Divinity By Jesus in the Gospel of John

-Written by H.C. Felder

There are those who deny the Deity of Christ. Of those, there are some who believe in the inerrant Word of God, yet allege that Jesus Himself never claimed to be God. Those who would make such a claim are simply wrong. Either they have never read the New Testament or simply refuse to acknowledge the abundance of evidence of Jesus’ claims of Divinity.


Evidence for the Resurrection of Jesus

-Written by H.C. Felder

Did Jesus rise from the dead? Why is it important? What is the evidence? Even if He did rise from the dead, what difference does it make anyway? These are the questions that will be answered in this article on the evidence for the resurrection.


The Qur'an: Heavenly or Human?

-Written by H.C. Felder

Islam maintains that the Qur'an that we have is the unalterable word of God. It is now exactly what it has always been. Muslims use this as a proof that the Qur'an and the Qur'an alone is inspired and that only the Qur'an has been saved from human corruption. Allah personally preserved the text as his true, eternal, and perfect testimony. This article will demonstrate that the text of the Qur'an is neither true, eternal, nor perfect. Instead, it is a book of purely human origins, evolving over a period of time.


The Muslim View of the Christian Bible

-Written by Joseph Alrasouli

Islam maintains that the Bible is corrupt and not authoritative. But why do Muslims believe this? Interestingly, the Qur’an makes no such claim. In fact, it exhorts the Bible. Mohammed himself believed the Bible to be the Word of God. This article will demonstrate that the unfounded beliefs of Muslims concerning the Bible are not only against its own writings, but against the teachings of the prophet they so revere.


Muslims Ask . . . Why Do Christians Celebrate Easter?

-Written by Joseph Alrasouli

What is Easter? And why do Christians celebrate it? What does the Easter Bunny have to do with Easter? And isn’t Easter a Pagan holiday? All of these valid questions should and need to be answered by the Christian Community. After all, Easter is the greatest of all Christian holy days and needs to be properly explained by the Christian so it may be properly understood by the non-Christian. After briefly discussing what Easter is not, we will then answer the much more important question of what Easter is and why Christians celebrate Easter? In answering these questions we will cite the Bible as well as Muslim sources.


God's Immutability

-Written by H.C. Felder

Is God really immutable? If so, then how do we explain instances where He seems to change His mind? For instance, God decided to destory the Children of Israel after they turned to the idol of the Golden Calf, just after leaving Egypt. Moses prayed for the people and Scripture seems to indicate that God changed His mind about destoying them. This article will demonstrate that God is indeed unchanging and argue against the view held by some Christians that the God of the Bible is a changing God.


Answering Objections to the Moral Law for the Existence of God

-Written by H.C. Felder

Even though the Moral Argument for the existence of God seems to be intuitive, there are still doubters and of course that should come as no surprise. A lot is at stake. I know personally from my former life as an atheist, that atheism and rejection of the Moral Law go hand in hand. However, the reasons given to explain away an objective Moral Law, all miss the mark. The purpose of this paper is to respond to the common objections to the existence of God based on the Moral Law.


Comparing the Philosophies of Plato And Aquinas

-Written by H.C. Felder

Although separated by more than fifteen hundred years, few philosophers have had as much impact on western thought as these two men. Both introduced revolutionary ideas in the study of reality and knowledge. The purpose of this article is to present and compare the philosophical systems of the ancient Greek philosopher Plato and the medieval philosopher St. Thomas Aquinas.
