Apologetics – All Articles
This is an important page on this website! An apologist is a person who defends his faith, and it needs no explanation about the importance of this fact. Most apologists are likely people who like to read books, follow lectures, or gather information differently. If this information contributes to the arsenal of a defender of the faith, we can talk about genuine apologetical information. The aim of this page is to contribute to this need of information.

🇬🇧 CONSPIRACIES — Don't we have Anything Better to do?

Conspiracies – Don’t we have Anything beter to do?

Conspiracies. We’re busy at it! And let’s face it, we’re good at it! So just a few theories: The moon landing was staged; the earth is flat, and they don’t want us to know it; the construction of the temple is all prepared; big pharma controls all medical research; the Covid jab was meant to […]

🇬🇧 Is it Child-Abuse to Teach Religion to Your Child?

Is Religious Upbringing like Child-Abuse?

We have been blessed with five children. All five we have brought up with the Christian faith as our guiding principle. They don’t know any better or daddy preaches Gospel to everybody and everyone else. Three of them have been baptised. Entirely on their own initiative, by the way. But yes, if some people are […]

THE RAPTURE [Dangerous Ideas Emerging in the Church of Christ]

The Rapture

Dangerous Ideas in the Church of Christ Introduction Many dear brothers and sisters I know believe in the rapture before the great tribulation or pre-trib rapture as they call it. The main text used for this comes from 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18 For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with […]

GEN Z and the GOSPEL - apologeet

Generation Z and the Gospel

We have all heard about the ‘millennials.’ This generation was born between 1984 and 1998. But what about the generation right behind them? Generation Z, born between 1999 and 2015. I myself have 4 children from this generation, 5 if you count my youngest (who was born in July 2015). This generation is starting high […]

How to evangelise - apologeet

Evangelising … How Then?

You’ve probably heard the following two comments: “I’m not much of an evangelist …” and “Evangelism isn’t really my thing.” Maybe you are that person who has also said this at times. And, it still gnaws at you! After all, we have received the command plain and clear in Matthew 28:19-20a Go ye therefore, and […]

Why do Christians Bother Others with their Faith?! Are they power-hungry?

Why do Christians Bother Others with their Faith?!

I have sometimes wondered why atheists bother others with their atheism. Well, I kind of received that answer a long time ago. But here is the counter question asked by some atheists. Why do Christians bother others with their faith? Why do Christians seek to rule over others with their religious ideas? This question is […]

Is matter inherently evil and was this the reason that God could not become human or was Jesus just an illusion?

Heresies all around us – Docetism & Gnosticism

Part 10 – Docetism & Gnosticism Some would say that the material world is inherently evil. If that is true, God could not have become flesh like we read in John 1. This teaching is also called ‘Docetism’ and it seems to tight in closely with Gnosticism. Which is Which? Okay, it might be a […]

Is Jesus less than the Father? (Subordinationism)

Heresies all around us – Subordinationism

Part 9 – Subordinationism We read in the Bible that Jesus voluntarily placed Himself under the authority of the Father. But could it be that Jesus and the Holy Spirit are subordinate in terms of their nature and in essence? This is what we are going to discuss today. Subordinationism Subordinationism teaches that Jesus (and […]

Did Jersus leave His Divine Nature behind in Heaven?

Heresies all Around us – Kenosis

Part 8 – Kenosis Did Jesus empty himself of divinity in the incarnation? In other words, did Jesus give up His deity when He became human? This idea is sometimes called kenotic theology. Confusing This word, kenosis, is confusing at best and misleading at worst. The word kenosis comes from the Greek kenoo, which mean […]

adoptionism

Heresies all Around us – Adoptionism

Part 7 – Adoptionism As far back as the second century, several groups already debated Jesus’ preexistence. One such group are called Adoptionists. They denied the preexistence of Jesus and, as a consequence, His deity. Jesus was tested by God According to these teaching, Jesus was just a human like you and I. Adoptionism, says […]

Can You Realy Decide to Follow Christ? [About Free Will and Pelagianism]

Heresies all Around us – Pelagianism

Part 6 – Pelagianism I came to Christ around 1994. In my testimony I often say that I chose to be saved by Jesus. I think you can even hear me saying that in my online testimony.i But, does that mean that I was capable of deciding all one my own? Pelagianism Well, it might […]

Heresies all Around us – Donatism

Part 5 – Donatism Is your baptism invalid if your baptiser was adulterer? Picture this: You decided to become a real follower of Christ. You realised that you needed to be baptist. That is your first step of obedience to Jesus. Your pastor was more than willing to baptise you. But, two weeks later you […]

Heresies all Around us Part 4 – Modalism

Heresies all Around us – Modalism

Part 4 – Modalism Jesus is like an uncle, nephew, father, brother, or son… Come on Patrick! Try this: Ask your pastor, youth leader or someone else in your church to explain the trinity! That is a fun question to ask, don’t you think? Many will struggle to give a good answer, and that is […]

Heresies all Around us Part 3 – Antinomianism

Heresies all Around us – Antinomianism

Part 3 – Antinomianism Let’s ditch the Old Testament laws! We are no longer under the law, right? Romans 6:14 For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace. Still, in many churches, we find the commandments written on banners. What’s more, every Sunday many congregations […]

Part 2 Arianism - What if Jesus was just a mere created man like you and me?

Heresies all Around us – Arianism

Part 2 – Arianism ➜ ➜ ➜ PS. Who noticed the mistake at the end of the video? No, it wasn’t a slip of the tongue. It was really in my head…. But what? A Christian believes that salvation cannot come through works or by another created being. We believe that we can only be […]

Heresies all Around us – Introduction

Part 1 – What is heresy? Jehovah’s Witnesses are like the Dutch people… You’ll find them all around the world. Please don’t complain about this comparison. I myself am Dutch. And I know, the Dutch mostly go around the world to do business, which can be good, right? The Jehovah’s Witnesses mostly go around to […]

don't use leftist words - english

Don’t use those Left-winged Words

Despite living on Madagascar, the new developments in the West have not escaped my attention. What strikes me, and annoys me, is that many words are being redefined. This happens mainly because of the left-liberal movements we see popping up every where in western countries. For a Christian, words and their definitions are very important. […]

Islamic Ideology

I am not a Big Fan of Islam

Before I came to faith, I really did take a critical look at other religions. Later, when I was already a Christian, I studied Islam over and over again. My conclusion? I am not exactly a huge fan of this religion. But that is too short and some might think I would dislike the people […]

Evidential apologetcs, what is it, and what can we do with it?

Evidential Apologetics?

If you think defending the Christian faith is just a small discipline within theology, you might be surprised that there are several styles. These styles come with their own extensive literature. There are four main types of Christian apologetics: Classical, evidential, presuppositional, and fideism. In this video I would like to look with you at […]

Did Paul invent Christianity?

Introduction I recently received a comment on one of my posts on my website. The person wasn’t really polite towards me because apparently I am completely brainwashed with complete loss of self-identity and therefore critical thinking. Not only that but I am also in a psychosis, totally trapped in a delusional system. Don’t you just […]

5 Bible Passages that Caused her to Lose her Faith

Romans 9:14-24 Did God created people to go to hell? Firstly, this is an important issue which demands an answer. The letter to the Romans is considered by many to be the most influential letter of Paul’s writings. Up till today it is still deemed to be the most doctrinal Epistle of the New Testament. […]

5 Questions Every Christian Should Learn How to Answer

5 Questions Every Christian Should Learn How to Answer

1. Have the New Testament documents not been corrupted? True enough, we hadn’t had the possibility to copy and paste the documents back then. So, all the documents had to be copied by hand, which was a tedious job. On top of that, we do not have the original documents, as written by the apostles […]

Apostasy in Church part 2

Apostasy in Church – 2

Part 2 – The Signs of Apostasy You might have heard this word before: Apostasy. It’s basic meaning is to fall away from the truth. It is a kind of rejection even though someone knows the truth. Therefore, an apostate is someone who has once believed and then rejected the truth of God. In the […]

Why they Persecute you?

Persecution, you know? I don’t really like this word. Not that I deny that there is persecution in this world. No, more because many of us use this word in the most inappropriate situations.

The 73 books of the roman catholic church

73 Books of the Roman Catholic Bible

I never really bothered about the extra books in the Roman Catholic bible. I always thought that this was just about a dispute in the early church. But is it? Let’s find out. Many of our more respectable Bibles, such as the King James Version, Revised Standard Version, and the New International Version, have just […]

Real Masculinity – Patriarchy

Masculinity or manliness, is the topic I started to address in my last video. In that video we have discussed the moral duty of a man to be virtuous. Virtue is the habit of choosing what is good and right, despite our own inclinations. So, a real godly man will try to find out what […]

Real Musculinity - Virtue

Real Masculinity – Virtue

Masculinity or manliness, is a topic I wanted to address for a long time already. I have already did a video about the idea of ‘What is a man.’ Actually, I have been thinking about what it means to be a man ever since I became a Christian somewhere in 1994. When I was a […]

Crybaby

Crybaby

I grew up with the books of Roald Dahl. I wasn’t such a great reader myself, but the teachers were doing a great job during the read aloud. I loved the story of the Twits and the Big Friendly Giant. These stories were colourful and exiting! But not very politically correct. What did I know […]

Sola Fide - Faith Alone

Sola Fide – Faith Alone

You might have heard of the five ‘solas’ of protestantism. It is basically a summary of what the protestants believe to be true after the reformation. Sola is latin for ‘only’ or ‘alone.’ I will explain a bit more about these ‘solas’ in a minute. But I mostly want to think with you about ‘sola […]

universalism

Universalism

Last month I received a question through my website about universalism, and whether I could say a thing or two about it. Universalism (Greek: apokastastasis) states that sooner or later all people will be saved for eternity. This position holds that the concepts of hell and punishment are inconsistent with a loving God. Early Church […]

the woke christian

The ‘Woke-Christian’

We hear a lot about the ‘woke’ movement. Everywhere you come you’ll meet people who refer to themselves as being ‘woke.’ In the supermarkets, on our universities, in the big companies, and even within some churches. What is this idea of being ‘woke’ anyway, and why do some Christians embrace this idea? Definition of the […]

Do I Have the Holy Spirit?

Do I have the Holy Spirit?

Have you ever wondered whether the Holy Spirit lives in you or not? I know I have! When I became a Christian the whole concept of the Holy Spirit was baffling to me. Well willing Christians tried to explain it to me, and they came with all sorts of terms: Baptism in the Spirit; receiving […]

can a christian los his salvation?

Can a Christian Lose his Salvation?

I guess this is the follow-up of the last video in which we tackled the doctrine of ‘once saved, always saved.’ Can a Christian lose salvation? Good question! What is a Christian? First, I think it will be smart to determine what a Christian is. A ‘Christian’ is not someone who sits in church every […]

Critical About the Idea of ‘Once Saved, Always Saved’

Today, I would like to take a look at this doctrine of ‘once saved, always saved.’ Actually, I don’t think it is an official church doctrine today. The doctrine has been around for a long time already. This time, I think I am not going to give you just one answer. To be honest, I […]

Biblical Diversity

Unity or Diversity… or Both? Last week we’ve had the annual conference with all the Missionaries from our organisation on Madagascar. My wife and I helped organising the week and that is nice because we get to plan when we have breaks and what kind of programme we have. We don’t really like the kind […]

What Not to Say to an Atheist

or, How not to Debate an Atheist What not to say to an atheist or how not to debate an atheist. Two different approaches to the same topic in my opinion. First of all, let me say this: I do not like to debate with atheists, sceptics or any other who says they don’t believe […]

Epicurean Paradox

Epicurean Paradox

The Problem of Evil The Epicurean paradox is very often used as a tool to deny or at least too seed doubts about the existence of a God. Now, I am very luck to have my own atheistic and sceptical followers on my video channels. I mean, some would even say that a self-respecting apologist […]

Divine war in the bible, genocide?

‘Divine War’ in the Old Testament

Utterly Destroyed Intro I have touched on this subject, differently, several times before. Divine war is a confusing subject. How can a God of love command His people to kill others? How can this be seen as ‘divine’ while it more or less looks like genocide. First things First Before we discuss the topic we […]

Shaming and Naming

Are They Shaming and Naming Your Kids?

Intro In the last video I talked about how you should not raise your kids, and hopefully it helped you to be more conscience about the importance of your role as a parent. Now, there is another thing I would like to discuss. I came to realise that one of the biggest weapons of Satan […]

How not to Raise your Kids

I am going to do it again… That one thing that has brought me in trouble several times before. I am going to talk about raising children. Trouble So, why would this topic bring me in trouble? I think it is because it is a very emotional issue. I don’t know of any parents who […]

Why do we Need Apologetics?

[Part 1] Go to part two In the last video I already touched on one aspect of the importance of apologetics. I know, I am a bit strange. On the one hand I say that I will not use it, to much, in online debates. But on the other hand I believe it is very […]

Why I don’t Debate Atheists

Why I don’t debate atheists? Well, that statement is not entirely true because, so now and then, I do respond on their remarks. However, I try to avoid these endless debates on forums, YouTube and other online platforms. You see, it is often a quite different situation if you meet someone in person, and it […]

Atheist’s Opinion – Again the Wager

Atheist Experience 30-03-2008i This wager thingy was still on my mind when I came across a YouTube channel called the ‘Atheist Experience.’ This channel is already running 13 years, so you could say that these guys are pretty experienced in them being atheistic and all. One of the faces of this channel is mister Matt […]

Pascal’s Wager

You Wanna Bet on it? My kids love to climb trees. Overall, I’m okay with that, but I normally give them one very important but simple rule: You are not allowed to fall out! And whatta you know… They tend to break that one simple rule every time. One day, one of them came running […]

Christian Stance on Abortion

In this series, we will discuss the Christian Stance on abortion. Many Christians are mute on this topic. This is unfortunate and unnecessary because there are good theological and reasonable arguments to take a firm stand in this debate. In this first part, I’ll lay out the lines along I would like to tackle this […]

Refuting Deism… (is it beneficial?)

A bit overdue but, better late than never. Last year, Brett send me a question about Deism. He said: In the Deistic model, a world with a God or a world without a God look the exact same. If God is a non-interventionist [in other words: When God is not intervening with the world], then […]

The Common Consent Argument Made Simple

In the last video, and the videos before I asked you whether you have any topics you would like me to discuss. So far, I have several. One of you want to talk about deism and why it is or isn’t a flawed idea. And Nortega came up with also a good topic. He said: […]

The Argument from Conscience Made Simple

What is good for you, isn’t necessarily good for me. Did you hear that one before? I did! It is called ‘moral subjectivism’, and it is very popular in our western society. But things seems to change if you start to talk about one’s conscience. I have met many who do not, or who refuse, […]

Argument from Miracles Made simple

This argument from miracles, and others, like the argument from religious experience and the argument from change, are not designed to prove the absolute existence of God they only claim a strong probability. Still, I include these kinds of arguments because they, together with all the other arguments, form a strong cumulative case. Other arguments […]

Argument from the Origin of the Idea of God Made simple

This argument is closely related to the ontological argument. It starts from the idea of God. However, unlike the ontological argument, it does not say that real being is part of the content of that idea. Nope, it tries to demonstrate that only God Himself could have make this idea to develop in our thoughts. […]

Argument from Change Made Simple

The material world we know is a world of change. My oldest son is about 1.76 metre. But he was not always that height. When he was born, he was about 51 centimetres. Yes, he changed a lot during the last 15 years. General Sherman is the biggest tree in the world. According to estimates, […]

Christ, not Caesar, Is Head of the Church

A Biblical Case for the Church’s Duty to Remain Open Christ is Lord of all. He is the one true head of the church (Ephesians 1:22; 5:23; Colossians 1:18). He is also King of kings—sovereign over every earthly authority (1 Timothy 6:15; Revelation 17:14; 19:16). The Church should stand immovably on those biblical principles. As […]

Religious Experience Argument Made Simple

We have discussed several arguments for God. Now we’ve come to the fifth argument and I think this one will tricker most resistance. The Religious Experience argument for the existence of God! A religious experience is when someone feels they have had a direct or personal experience of God. This argument basically says that if […]

Moral Argument Made Simple

And the Church Said Nothing…

Not a topic about apologetics this week. Something else got my attention. Last week I was reading the news items concerning my home country, the Netherlands. One article triggered my attention. It was an interview with a doctor about all the measures the government took and is still taking to prevent people from getting Corona. […]

What About Those Who Have Never Heard the Gospel?

As missionary among the un-reached Antanala-people of Madagascar, I have heard this question a million times… Well, maybe not a million but many times. Mostly these questions are hidden in presuppositions. Among Christians some think that nobody will be saved, except those who’ve heard and believed the Gospel. While others, say that there are people […]

Teleological Argument Made Simple

What do you think? Are we like orphans or are we citizens of our universe? Are we just an accident, a fluke, a product of mere chance? If we have to belief the secular world we are just a result of time, space, matter, chance and impersonal laws. No, the universe is just what it […]

Cosmological Argument Made Simple

Do you know mister William Lane Craig? This is a hugely smart man, and listening to him sounds like you’re reading an official academic essay. I’ve written a lot of essays and I wish I could write them as fast as he formulates his sentences. Mister Craig is well known for his philosophical way of […]

Ontological Argument Made Simple

Introduction In his 1078 work Proslogion, Anselm of Canterbury came with the idea which is known as ‘the ontological argument’. In this argument God’s existence is not just possible or probable or very likely, but is logically ensured. Anselm defined God as “that than which nothing greater can be thought”. Anselm said that this being […]

Eight Reasons why people won’t accept the Gospel of Jesus Christ

Some, especially my kids, were wondering why I did that. One of them said that it is kind of offending to her. And she is quit right. I am […]

Silly Christian, How about Obesity?

Oh boy, this video is going to cost me some followers…. How about obesity? Or in other words, how about living an unhealthy lifestyle? Do we, as Christians, have anything to say about that? And if so, are there consequences for those who are mistreating their bodies? Nissan Patrol Well, before I dive into this […]

Silly Christian, isn’t God Against Capitalism?

Some words seem to carry an enormous load. Capitalism is such a word. Democracy is another one. In a previous video I already touched on democracy in the sense of freedom. In that video I also said that a Christian should promote freedom. Freedom of speech, religion and the freedom to have property. But now […]

Silly Christian, Does God even Bother About Our Carbon-footprint

Short Answer Short answer is yes! That is it, you can watch something else now. Bye! Longer Answer Not satisfying enough? Okay, there is a slightly longer answer as well. God is the Creator of all things and as such He is concerned with the world. We can read the creation account in the book […]

What is God Like?

Silly Christian, you can’t even explain who God is. I would love to explain to you what God is like… But, to do so would be of no value to anyone. All I can know and explain is what God revealed to us in the Bible. And that is what I will do! As I […]

Christianity is against freedom of speech… Right?

This accusation is a wide spread, and often celebrated argument against Christians. True enough, we have seen examples in the past where people were not allowed to believe or to say what they wanted. Blasphemy, criticism and disagreement within the ruling church was a perilous undertaking. However, before I continue I would like to quote […]

Christians are Anti-Vaxxers!

I have heard this accusation on the internet and it kind of intrigued me. This video is going to be a little longer than normal because I want to be a bit more precise in my explanation. Am I Anti-Vaxx? Am I an Anti-Vaxxer? Are Christians per definition Anti-Vaxx? For me personally I can answer […]

Scandals in Church

How much I would like to deny that things go wrong in church, I cannot do that. Church is a gathering of often a messy group of humans. People from all layers of society, people with their short comings, people who still drag their sin loving nature with them. However, Christians also believe that they […]

Christianity is just a Crutch for Weak People

This is what I thought about Christianity before I became a Christian. What a bunch of losers. They need an invisible friend, an invisible daddy to comfort them in this tough world! Now, when I look back at that time I only partially changed my mind. Let me explain what I mean. You see, you […]

Churches are Full of Hypocrites

Definition of hypocrite according to the Merriam-Webster dictionary: 1 : a person who puts on a false appearance of virtue or religion 2 : a person who acts in contradiction to his or her stated beliefs or feelings So I am sure there are many hypocrites in and outside the church. The Bible calls hypocrisy […]

Is the Church Losing Her Credibility?

Yes, you heard it right. I am worried about the credibility of the church and with that the message the churches ought to preach. Before I continue, I would like to say that when I talk about Christians and the church I tend to talk about ‘we’ and ‘us’. This is because I believe that […]

What is Sin Anyway?

Silly Christian, you always talk about sin! What is it anyway? Biblical Christianity boils down to this main theme: God created us, we rebelled against Him this rebellion separated us from God for ever we need to be saved from this rebellious state we cannot solve it by ourselves Jesus Christ stepped in and sacrificed […]

Religion Cause Wars

Silly Christian, the only thing religion does is cause wars! Actually you can not strictly say that this is the fault of religion. It is more accurate to say it is our sin that causes wars. In many cases it is about greed, lust, power, and tyranny. Even when a country goes to war to […]

Genocide in the Bible

The Bible is such an awful book! It even mentions genocide. You must be silly to say you follow that Book! Before we tackle this question I would like to point to my channel on LBRY. You’ll find the link in the description. LBRY does not censure or alter content and guarantees freedom of speech. […]

The Bible is Written Years After the Actual Events

Silly Christian! Why do you trust the sources of the New Testament? They have been written many years after the actual event! Introduction Good, let’s start with Luke’s words when he starts his account — I will read to you from the Good News Bible Translation, just because the language of this translation is a […]

Doesn’t the Bible Contradict Itself?

The Bible is full of contradictions, right? Still, those silly Christians believe this not to be a problem! Introduction I became a Christian around 1995 and have studied the Bible ever since. To say that I never found one strange thing would be a lie. Sometimes I read stuff I didn’t understand or things that […]

Dealing With Corona

To be clear, I am Dutch. Some things I say may not be applicable for those living outside the Netherlands… Or maybe, it does. Anyway. Christians, like all other people in the Netherlands, are affected by the Covid-Sars2 virus. How do we deal with it? Are we going to get caught up in the panic […]

Why Do You Believe the Bible?

Silly Christian, why do you believe what the bible says? It is ancient! Introduction to the Bible Yes, the Bible is ancient! So much is true. Actually the Bible is a collection of sixty-six books divided over two sections. By the year 90BC, 39 books had already been included in the Old Testament. The Old […]

If God is a God of Love how can He Judge too?

Questioner: You say that God is love right? Jurgen: Yes. Questioner: But God will judge as well, right? Jurgen: Yes, of course! Questioner: Silly Christian, if God is a God of love how can he judge too? The two, judgement and love, are actually connected. Judgement proves God’s love. Many of us are thinking about […]

Textual criticism of the New Testament

How We Can Verify The Reliability Of The New Testament Narratives Of Jesus It is a common fact that the New Testament was written closer to the events than any other ancient event in history. More copies (24,593) of the New Testament manuscripts have survived time and decay, than any other manuscript copies in existence, […]

How About Other Religions

One of the most basic claims of Christianity is that Jesus is the only way for salvation. Silly Christians! There are hundreds of religions, why should yours be different? I think I am going to disappoint you with my answer. The question actually says that there are many religions. But whenever I study a new […]

How do You Know that There is a God?

Christians say that there is a God. So tell me silly Christian, how do you know that? Basically the answer is very simple. Christians believe that God revealed Himself to us in different ways. Nature One way he did that was through nature. The apostle Paul said the following in Romans 1: 19-20 since what […]

Who Made God?

Silly Christian! Tell me.The famous Kalam cosmological argument says this: Whatever begins to exist has a cause. The universe began to exist. Therefore, the universe has a cause.Then you Christians say that the cause must be God. So, tell me: Who made God? Here we go! You’re right. If we only take the first three […]

Free Will

If God is all knowing, He would have known that humans would sin. So why did He create them? Two counter questions: Before you were born, your parents knew that you would disobey them and be bad from time to time. Still, they desired to have you. Before you got married you must have known […]
