The Bogey Man Called “Euthyphro’s Dilemma”

God is Triune, He is Not a Monad An old, hackneyed, and rather obnoxious philosophical problem facing “theism” in general is Euthyphro’s Dilemma. This philosophical dilemma derives its name from a Platonic dialogue which bears the same name as its title.

How should an Apologist respond to the accusation: “Jesus was merely a Magician when it comes to the miracles?”

How to start doing apologetics

Someone recently asked me where to learn to begin to do apologetics. Well, depending on the situation, I would recommend that someone purchase a good introductory book on Christian Apologetics. You might check out Norman Geisler’s Christian Apologetics or even William Lane Craig’s Reasonable Faith. However, while reading books is effective, one of the best ways to learn apologetics, is… (more…)
