The Significance and Importance of the Virgin Birth of Jesus



With all the attacks on the New Testament over the last few years, I thought I would post the material again. However, before we "go there", many of the mythologies that claim to have "savior/virgin birth stories" are either forgeries, or fabrications that have been well after, even centuries of the prophecies and one hundred to two hundred years following the actual historical events. In either case, none of the mythology stories have a single shred of salvific value, since they were based on "myth."

What Are the Essentials of Biblical Christianity?

by Rob Lundberg

The other day my daughter and I were having a conversation about some of the basic essentials of the historical faith, what it teaches and what some groups within the array of Christian faith believe. What are the common teachings that bring us together when it comes to embracing this faith known as biblical Christianity?


To give you an abstract illustration allow us to imagine that we have a bowl of M&M's but I tell you that there are a few candy coated pieces of cyanide in the same bowl.  Would you dive into those M&M's.  Here is another illustration.

The Bankruptcy of Atheism

by Rob Lundberg

When you look at the title, you might be saying, "Hey Rob, what do you mean that atheism is a bankrupt worldview?" First off what prompted this topic for this posting is from finding a meme asking this same question on a Facebook apologetics group.  The meme asked, "Is Atheism Impossible?" This can be taken a couple of ways.

One way is in the thinking that it is hard to win an atheist to believe in the existence of God and the become a follower of Jesus Christ, God in human flesh. The other way is to look at this from the angle of two terms in the question, "atheism" and ideologically bankrupt."  Here is the approach that I wish to take on this subject since there are those a whole lot philosophically astute who have written on this, like Dr. William Lane Craig.

Apologetics Awareness Week, September 10-17

Apologetics Awareness Week is next week!  What is Apologetics Awareness Week?  The purpose of Apologetics Awareness Week - September 10-17, 2017 - is two fold.  First it is to motivate and inspire Christians to promote apologetics in their local area, online, and within their sphere of influence.  

Second it is to unite the apologetics community in promoting rational faith in the church, Christian schools, and throughout the culture. You can help with this effort by networking intentionally, particularly through social media during this week. And don’t forget the power of personal, face-to-face communication, especially with your church’s leadership.

Thoughts About the Tragedy in Charlottesville

By Rob Lundberg

This past weekend—both Saturday and Sunday is a bit of a blur for me due to my job schedule and environment, which puts me only hearing about the Charlottesville rally and the the tragic incidents that occurred there this past weekend.  While I am still piecing things together, what I do understand is that white nationalists that include neo-Nazis and other hate groups staged a rally in Charlottesville this weekend. 

And the perception is that it was a rally intended to protest the removal of a statue of Robert E. Lee.  Confederate flags were flying high at the protest. Then, in the early afternoon, some “thug” rammed his car into some of the counter-protesters, killing one woman and injuring dozens of others.
