3

How many of us out there are passionate about saving babies from abortion? Hopefully a lot of us. I’ve seen several pro-life articles here on TheReb, and I’ve written one myself. Yet, while I’m so passionate about standing for life, I often feel at a loss about how to put my convictions into action. What are some practical ways we can stand up for the millions of babies being aborted worldwide...

The Problem with “That’s Your Truth”

T

I was staring at my phone, waiting for a message from my good friend. I felt pretty confident about the last text message I had sent him. I was proud of myself; it was so well thought out and full of truth. Finally, my friend’s message came through. Upon reading it I was suddenly filled with frustration and anger. “Well, Ryan,” it read. “We are both just on different paths, headed to the same...

Understanding Atheism—How Denying God’s Existence Leads to Unrestrained Evil

U

Editor’s Note: Several months ago, Levi Dade, founder of Defending Christianity, shared with us why we need to love God with not just our emotions, but also our minds. Now, Levi is back and showing us a glimpse of what that looks like by helping us understand the viewpoints of other worldviews—in this case, atheism. Joseph Stalin, political leader who governed the Soviet Union for 29 years, is...

The 3 Biggest Arguments for the Existence of God

T

There are many arguments for the existence of God. This article covers the top three in simple terms and gives brief summaries of each. To go more in-depth on each subject, additional resources are recommended at the end. The Moral Argument This is my favorite and most compelling argument.

The Gospel As Told By A T-Shirt

T

Each morning when I wake up I make a decision. Consistently every day I get out of bed and I put on this t-shirt. Well, not this exact one every day, but I have six identical t-shirts that all say, “Because The Gospel Is Really Good News.” I’m not kidding when I say that this decision affects my whole day, every day. Least of all because walking around shirtless in public is both impractical and...

With All Your Mind: 4 Reasons Why We’re Called to Love God Intellectually

W

We live in an anti-intellectual age. To grasp this, all we have to do is observe the surrounding culture. Seemingly everywhere we look, our feelings are valued over reality and our emotional experiences over reason. Anti-intellectual Christianity This spirit of anti-intellectualism has not only invaded the culture but the church as well. In worship, sermons, and even evangelism, one’s subjective...

Loving God With Your Mind: How God Wants Your Brain Too

L

Recently, I spent an afternoon with my youth group distributing food to people in our community. Somehow, the topic of apologetics came up in a conversation between me and one of the adults. After they told me they have no interest in learning why they believe in Christianity, I asked them one of my favorite questions. “What are you going to do when a friend, who is not a Christian, asks you for...

What If God’s Not Real?

W

I’ve struggled with it. You’ve struggled with it. We all have. Does God really exist? Billions of people think that the Bible is false, and Christians are sometimes tempted to believe them. Jesus can start to look like a fairytale at times because of how bad the world around us is. “Is God real?” This question isn’t bad in itself, but we need to make sure we come to the right conclusion. We need...

Are All Religions the Same? How Jesus Sets Christianity Apart

A

“All religions are basically the same because they all have the same root idea of God.” A work friend of mine made this claim, arguing that there were no important differences between Christianity and other religions. Is that really the case though? My thoughts immediately went to the different views of Jesus within Christianity and Islam. At first, it seems like Christians and Muslims have many...

Those Who Have Never Heard: Why and How Teens Can Respond to Christ’s Great Commission

T

“Preach the Gospel” Is a Clear Command for Every Believer Paul said in Romans 15:20-21, “It has always been my ambition to preach the gospel where Christ was not known, so that I would not be building on someone else’s foundation. Rather, as it is written: Those who were not told about him will see, and those who have not heard will understand.” The question is, hasn’t everyone heard about Jesus...
