Pro-Life Crash Course

This is a great primer on the pro-life argument from Stand To Reason. Christians, please take time to think through the arguments. Lives are at stake.
The original post can be found here.
 
Here’s a summary of how to argue for the pro-life position that I created for a friend whose secular philosophy class was scheduled to discuss abortion. It’s a great little cheat sheet you can keep on hand for your own discussions on this subject.
 
The most important question to resolve when discussing whether or not you can kill the unborn is the question, “What is it?” If it’s not a human being, then there’s no problem killing it. If it’s a valuable human being, then one can’t justify killing it.* Read more…


APOLOGETICS

APOLOGETICS!!!  This isn’t about how to “apologize” for our beliefs. No, Apologetics comes from the Greek word apologiawhich means “a reasoned defense“.  We see this in the Scriptures in 1 Peter 3:15

(emphasis mine).
The apostle Paul also calls believers in Jesus to tear down strongholds and cast down arguments that are set forth against God.

As the Apostle Paul stated, “If Christ has not been raised, your faith is worthless; you are still in your sins” (1 Corinthians 15:17). Christianity is NOT blind faith!  Dr. Greenleaf, the Royal Professor of Law at Harvard University, was one of the greatest legal minds that ever lived. He wrote the famous legal volume entitled, A Treatise on the Law of Evidence, considered by many the greatest legal volume ever written. Dr. Simon Greenleaf believed the Resurrection of Jesus Christ was a hoax. And he determined, once and for all, to expose the “myth” of the Resurrection. After thoroughly examining the evidence for the resurrection — Dr. Greenleaf came to the exact opposite conclusion! He wrote a book entitled, An Examination of the Testimony of the Four Evangelists by the Rules of Evidence Administered in the Courts of Justice. In which he emphatically stated:
