Fast Radio Bursts: E. T. Is Not Calling Home

by Hugh Ross

On December 27, I counted more than a dozen web articles announcing that radio signals from deep space could be from intelligent aliens. These articles created a web buzz that generated a flurry of questions, including:

  1. Are scientists baffled by radio signals from deep space?1
  2. Are technologically advanced aliens trying to contact Earth?2
  3. Do...

Take Up and Read: Mere Christianity

by Ken Samples

Given its dependence on Judaism and the Hebrew Bible, historic Christianity has always been a textual and literary religion. Because of their belief in a verbal, propositional revelation in Scripture (Old and New Testaments), Christians, like Jews before them, have been known as People of the Book. With that bookish past, I think Christians have good reason to be vigorous and dedicated...

Merry Christmas!

As we head into the weekend, let me wish you a merry Christmas!

The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.

Exceptional Voices, Exceptional Humans

by Hugh Ross

One of the things I especially like about the Christmas season are Christmas carols, Christmas cantatas, and Christmas oratorios. The lyrics are loaded with doctrinal teachings that by themselves compel worship of our God who chose to become a man in order that we might be saved from sin and death.

by Fazale Rana

Never Fear an Honest Question

by Jeff Zweerink

“How does this work?” “Why did that happen?” “Is this really true?”

I love questions. I enjoy learning from insightful responses (either spoken or read) and delight in providing a helpful answer to questions others have. Even questions for which I have no answer provide pleasure through pondering how I might find a good response. Questions can indicate...

Monkey Business: Evolutionists’ Oversight

by Hugh Ross

Where Charles Darwin and evolutionists today agree is that humans and modern apes are both naturally descended from a single primate species that long ago went extinct. Darwin and today’s evolutionists also agree that nonhuman primates are incapable of mimicking human speech sounds. Darwin thought that at least part of the reason had to do with brain differences between humans and modern...
