Really Recommended Posts 12/19/14- Christmas Apologetics Edition

st nicholas-heretics-presentsMerry Christmas everybody! It’s just around the corner and I wanted to share some apologetics posts related to Christmas and our Lord going into this week. We have some awesome topics and reading here, so be sure to check them all out and let me know what you think!

Advent Series: Christological Heresies– Here, you can read about a number of historic Christological heresies. Why would you want to? Well the easiest answer is that heresies keep popping up with new names and supporters. Read through this series for some solid Christology.

God and Santa Claus– Are the cases for evidence for Santa Claus and God really on par as atheists sometimes claim? Here’s a brief post highlighting some errors with this notion.

The Jewish Background of the Incarnation in the Gospel of John– Eric Chabot here puts forward a wide-ranging look at Jewish views that are related to the notion of Incarnation as found in the Gospel of John. This is a really worthwhile read, so be sure you take the time to go through it.

Did Luke mess up on the timing of the Christmas Story?– Is the Gospel of Luke historically inaccurate on some key details?

Should Christians Celebrate Christmas– A lengthy look at this question from a Christian apologist. I don’t agree with everything here necessarily, but it is well worth the read and worth interacting with.

Picard- Make it So– Okay this is not apologetics related but it is Star Trek related and awesome. Check out Picard (and crew) singing “Make it So”- a mashup parody of “Let it Snow.”


My Posts on Apologetics related to Christmas

Jesus’ Birth: How Undesigned Coincidences give evidence for the truth of the Gospel Accounts– Undesigned coincidences are one of the major apologetics arguments that remains untapped from historical apologetics. Here, I use it to examine the narratives of Jesus’ birth.

The Virgin Birth?– Is a virgin birth possible? I look at this key issue of creedal Christianity.

Saint Nicholas- A Christian Life Lived, A Story Told– What can the life and story of Saint Nicholas tell us about ourselves and about Christianity?

Guest Post: Rev. Kent Wartick on the Virgin Birth– My dad shares some awesome insights into the virgin birth and its importance for Christianity.

  2. I think there are parallels between the “God and Santa Claus” fallacy and the Spaghetti Monster fallacy. Both take something lesser and unnecessary, and elevate them to level of God.
