What if Someone Uses the Columbo Tactic against Us?

September 14, 2023 • Amy Hall, Greg Koukl

What should we do if someone uses the Columbo tactic against us?

I have a high respect for truth, but my Christian friends tell me that only some doctrines matter. Why not defend all that has been taught for the past 2,000 years?

How Would Persecuted Christians Have Understood Psalms Promising Protection and Rescue?

November 30, 2023 • Amy Hall, Greg Koukl

How would Christians under persecution (such as those in Rome) have understood verses like Psalm 34:19–20 that promise protection and rescue by God for righteous people? Is it a contradiction for Jesus to say both that some will be put to death and that not a hair of your head will perish (Luke 21:16–19)? Is there evidence that would contradict my coworker’s claim that the Bible has been added to throughout the years?

Are Christians Who Continue to Sin Hypocrites?

November 23, 2023 • Amy Hall, Greg Koukl

What’s the difference between sins of action and sinful character flaws, and does continued sin of either form make Christians hypocrites? Do you think Ananias and Sapphira were saved if they had accepted Christ as Lord and Savior, despite their massive blunder/punishment? Given the stakes of temporary time to choose an eternal destination, why do any Christians do anything but evangelize? Why do churches have state-of-the-art equipment and buildings for a temporary time when they preach an eternal reality? It seems like they’re not practicing what they believe.
