Readers, as part of my mission with this blog, I’d like to try to raise awareness of how many awesome sites about Christianity and apologetics there are out there. As such, rather than just leaving it to a blogroll, I’m going to start featuring certain blogs and posts here on a semi-regular basis. I encourage you to check them out!
- “The Christian and the Euthyphro Dilemma” by Erik over at The Gospel of Erik. This post is simply phenomenal. Erik shows how the Euthyphro Dilemma fails to challenge the Christian concept of God because it makes assumption about God which are false. Erik uses Scripture to point out these areas of divergence.
- “Should Governments Decide Human Worth?” by Arthur at Cold and Lonely Truth. I can’t describe how much I like this post. Arthur points out some of the difficulties with allowing the government to determine human values. It also has a really sweet clip from The Twilight Zone which lead me to watching the whole episode. Check it out. Now!
- “Barbie Girl” by Dan and Tiffany O’Day at the aptly named Dan and Tiffany O’Day. Body image is an issue which Christians should address more. There’s a really awesome video here of how much work goes into a shot of a model. I really recommend this post.
- Book Review of “The Christian Delusion” edited by John Loftus by Matthew/Madeleine Flannagan at MandM. A review from Philosophia Christi of a book arguing against Christianity. Great comments.
Thanks for the link, J.W.! Glad you enjoyed the post.
I actually like Eutyphro’s dilemma but prefer to direct it against atheists. I learned it from F. Beckwith, but since I cannot give you a precise reference, I will try to reconstruct it. It goes something like this: “Is God evil because you hate Him, or do you hate Him because he is evil?” If you opt for the first horn, then the judgment is subjective and capricious; if the second, then there is an objective standard by which you can judge God as evil. This invites the obvious retort of where is that objective standard to be found; not to mention that it sounds remarkably similar to Christianity’s view of the nature of God…
Thanks for the link! Just now getting around to catching up on your blog, sorry for the delay!
