But even if you should suffer for the sake of righteousness, you are blessed. And do not fear their intimidation, and do not be troubled, but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you yet with gentleness and reverence; and keep a good conscience so that in the thing in which you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ will be put to shame.  1 Peter 3: 14-16

Ray Combort's Daily Evidence - Apologetic Report

In Acts 17:16 we are told that Paul was grieved because the whole city of Athens was given over to idolatry. So, in vv. 22–28, he tells his hearers that they had other gods before the God of creation. He is in essence opening up the First and Second Commandments: “I am the Lord your...

“It is amazing how many intellectuals call themselves ‘agnostics,’ not realizing that this is the Greek word for ‘ignorant.’ To be ignorant is a shame when one has the possibility of acquiring knowledge. The Christian religion gives satisfactory answers to the ultimate...

Awake, you who sleep.

Written by

Until God’s Law comes in the hand of the Captain of our salvation (see Heb. 2:10), we are asleep in our sins. It strikes us and says, “Awake, you who sleep, arise from the dead, and Christ will give you light” (Eph. 5:14). It is God’s Law that causes the sinner to revive and...

The king loved Esther.

Written by

We obtain grace and favor from our King and are given the crown of life (James 1;12), but not because of our beauty. There is nothing in us that draws out the love of God. God loves us because He is love itself.

Esther 2:17 The king loved Esther more than all the other women, and she...

There are many things God cannot do—things related to His character rather than His ability. The Bible makes it clear that God cannot lie. (See Heb. 6:18 comment.) He cannot sin. He also cannot let injustice go unpunished. As for whether God can create a rock that He cannot lift, when it...

Audible praise is not enough.

Written by

We are often too busy to consider the amazing creation in which we live. See Psa. 111:2–6 for why God’s marvelous works should be studied. When we ponder the clouds, the stars, the birds, the trees, the flowers, the animals, the vast array of foods, the marvels of the human body, etc.,...

Save this dying world!

We are in a battle for the lost. There is no higher calling than to (with God’s help) seek to save this dying world. Today, pray for divine encounters and be ready to share the gospel when the opportunity comes. Have your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace (see Eph....

Pronouncing sinners as unclean.

Written by

As priests of the Lord (see 1 Pet. 2:5; Rev. 1:6) we are to pronounce the sinner as unclean. How can we do that without appearing judgmental? Simply by doing what Jesus did and pointing to the Ten Commandments (see Mark 10:17–22). Consider how Paul did this in Rom. 2:21–23: “You,...
