How the Nature of Evidence Can Help You Make the Case for Christianity

In this episode of the Cold-Case Christianity Broadcast, J. Warner Wallace presents a plenary session at the 2016 Reasons to Believe AMP Conference. What are the rules of evidence and how can these rules help us to make the case for Christianity? J. Warner explores several key characteristics of evidence that will help you become a better Christian Case Maker.


Answering Two Atheist Objections

In this blast from the past, Jim answers listener email and responds to two atheist objections. Most skeptics cite either the problem of evil or the unlikely occurrence of the resurrection in an effort to invalidate theism and the Christian Worldview. Why would God create our world in the first place if he could simply have ushered us directly into heaven and avoided all the pain and suffering? How do we account for those episodes in the scripture in which Jesus' followers seem to have trouble identifying him after the resurrection? Is this evidence that the resurrection was a fraud?

How Were People Saved Before Jesus?

In this blast from the past, Jim begins to respond to listener email by addressing two difficult issues. How were people saved prior to the life of Jesus? If faith alone in Christ alone is required to be saved, how were Old Testament saints saved prior to the arrival of Christ? Jim also addresses the ‘hot topic’ issue of abortionist murders. Does the Old Testament require us to stop the murdering of the unborn by murdering the doctors who are performing abortions? Are abortionist murders permissible in light of the Old Testament Law? How are we to reconcile the tension between what we believe and what the law of the land permits?

Answering Listener Email - Part 2

In this episode of the Cold-Case Christianity Broadcast, J. Warner Wallace responds to emails from viewers of the show. (1) Are moral standards simply a matter of personal or cultural preference? (2) Why do Christians view the apostolic martyrdoms as valuable evidence of the veracity of their claims, yet reject the martyrdoms of other religious groups as evidence? (3) How can I interact with my Mormon friends about the Book of Mormon when I seem to use the same criteria to validate what I believe about the Bible?

Answering Listener Email - Part 1

In this episode of the Cold-Case Christianity Broadcast, J. Warner Wallace responds to two emails from viewers of the show. (1) Is it unbiblical to examine evidence to confirm the reliability of the Bible? Shouldn’t we just trust what the Bible says since it is the Word of God? (2) Do the varied interpretations of Genesis 1 invalidate the Bible as a source of reliable information? If the Bible is the Word of God, shouldn’t we be able to come to agreement about what it teaches?
