What does it mean to be “Born Again”? The church has taught that it is the reformation of the self, a renewal of the flesh that will become more inclined to God. But did the cross do something even more?
A few years ago I responded to a few videos from atheist activist Hemant Mehta (which you can fine here, here, and here) and I thought I’d settle back into the flow of things with a fun response to one of his new videos.
What does it mean to “be saved”? If the reality of our salvation has been brought by Christ Jesus, what should our evangel be?

Have you ever been told that sin wasn’t God’s plan or that God never intended for evil and death to enter into the hearts of man? Is this the gospel we should be believing?

How could the place of Christ’s birth be a valuable piece of evidence for the historicity of His resurrection?
Can the rise of Christianity be explained by the occurrence of hallucinations? Were the disciples only seeing things that weren’t really there?
Is it better to be joyful or filled with sorrow? How do we reconcile these two verses?
Could the empty tomb of the Gospels be the result of an unfortunate mistake? Perhaps Jesus’s burial in the tomb of Joseph of Arimathea was merely temporary?
Why do female witnesses serve as powerful evidence for the existence of the empty tomb?
The final piece of the minium facts approach details the conversion of Jesus’ unbelieving brother, James. Why is this such an important piece of evidence and why should we believe it’s true?
The conversion of Saul of Tarsus, better known by the name of Paul, is one of the most convincing (or perplexing) pieces of data surrounding the Resurrection. But why should we believe Paul’s conversion was genuine?
Some critics have raised the objection that Jesus’ appearance to the apostle Paul on Damascus Road was purely spiritual or visionary in nature. Does this mean Christ’s Resurrection appearances in the Gospels were spiritual also?
In 1 Corinthians 15 is Paul teaching a spiritual, non-physical Resurrection? If so, does that mean the Gospel accounts are products or later, legendary embellishment?
