William Lane Craig’s book “Reasonable Faith” is a very fine apologetic textbook for a Christian apologetic subculture that is interested in this set of questions. But in this video, I explain why it is less relevant to the average churchgoer. ?
William Lane Craig
For years, William Lane Craig has repeated a bad argument that the existence of objective moral values entails the existence of God. He did it again yesterday: 1. If God does not exist, objective moral values do not exist.2. Objective moral values do exist.3. Therefore, God exists.#Apologetics #MoralArgument https://t.co/V5G7ysRpg4 — Reasonable Faith (@RFupdates) January 30, […]
In this video, I offer a critical response to three points of advice William Lane Craig gives to Christians who face doubts.
William Lane Craig is widely considered to be the leading Christian apologist in the world and for good reason. The guy straddles two worlds like few others. On the one hand, he is head of a very influential apologetics parachurch ministry (Reasonable Faith), a fixture at church events and lay apologetics conferences, a podcaster and […]
Here is a video by a self-described street apologist who critiques my critique of William Lane Craig on biblical atrocities. It was just uploaded in the last couple of days. I have viewed the first ten or so minutes to this point, and hope to listen to the rest later. Let me know what you […]
I was recently asked by a friend to watch and respond to this short clip in which William Lane Craig offers an argument against God as defined in Islam: In that clip, Craig appears to present an argument like this: (1) If God exists, God is the greatest conceivable being. (2) For any being to […]
We’re going to address Calvinists and Arminians in a moment. But first let’s begin with the catalyst for the discussion which is a February 2016 episode of William Lane Craig’s venerable Reasonable Faith Podcast titled “Do Christians and Muslims worship the same God?” In this podcast Craig addresses the controversial question that was first raised as […]
Editor’s Note: Since this article was posted, Jeff Lowder sent me the following note via email: “I never thought that Craig doesn’t care about the truth. I was careless and sloppy when I said I agreed with Rumraket on everything except for his tally of his debates. I simply didn’t read his comment carefully, and […]
Like many listeners I was disheartened a few months ago when “Reasonable Doubts” decided to call it quits on their popular radio show/podcast. But just as autumn death gives way to rebirth in spring, so the demise of Reasonable Doubts has given way to Justin Schieber’s new YouTube channel “Real Atheology“. And just two episodes […]
There can be no doubt that William Lane Craig is an outstanding apologist. He is, first of all, an academic who has made a significant contribution to scholarship. (Craig’s scholarly output speaks for itself, including two earned doctorates from leading universities, dozens of journal articles in the top journals in philosophy, and several academic books.) Perhaps even […]
As one of the most influential and prolific philosophers of religion today, and indisputably the world’s leading Christian apologist, William Lane Craig is one of those rare guests who truly needs no introduction. But that’s not going to stop me from giving one. Dr. Craig is Research Professor of Philosophy at Talbot School of Theology […]
William Lane Craig and J.P. Moreland, eds. Naturalism: A Critical Analysis. London: Routledge, 2000. Most of the greatest theologians have not only been conversant with the philosophical movements current in their time (e.g. Neoplatonism, Aristotelianism), but have been highly articulate expositors and critics of them. However, most theologians today appear singularly uninterested in, if not wholly […]
The first rule of hosting is simple: if you have a sidekick then treat him well because he just wants to make you look good. William Lane Craig flouted that principle on this edition of the Reasonable Faith podcast and poor Kevin Harris suffered as a result. Here’s the backstory. Craig had just made an […]
This is my eleventh installment of my ongoing critique of William Lane Craig’s podcast “Richard Dawkins and Driving Out the Canaanites.” (Yes, there is an end in sight. One final installment and I’m done.) For the tenth installment click here. This time around we join the podcast at 16:56 as Craig explains the unique nature […]
