Why Doesn’t God Show Himself To Me?

The British TV series Dixon of Dock Green ran for an incredible 25 years. In 1990, the atheistic playwright behind it, Ted Willis, moved an amendment to the Broadcasting Bill in the British Houses of Parliament, hoping to pave the way for the presentation of humanism alongside Christianity on religious programmes on the BBC. Explaining his motives to a committee in the House of Lords, Baron Willis confessed, “I am a total non-believer. I do not apologise to the committee for that.…

The Two Ways – Which One Are You On?

You are travelling in one of two ways. Your own way, or God’s way. The Bible says, “All we, like sheep, have gone astray, we have turned, every one, to his own way” (Isa 53:6).

Stung by Pinker’s smear,…

What is the Most Common Objection to God?

The most common objection to the God of the Bible is not “how did Noah get all the animals onto the ark?”, nor even “Where did Cain get his wife?”. Ask the average atheist why he doesn’t believe in God and he’ll simply say, “There’s no evidence.” The Bible challenges that claim in Acts 14:17, stating that throughout history “God has left not Himself without witness.” God has left a trail of evidence behind Him for all to see.
