A Powerful Apologetic Method: ABDUCTIVE Reasoning!

"What in the world is 'Abductive Reasoing'?" Well, abductive reasoning is employed by crime scene detectives, car mechanics, and your medical doctor.  Abductive reasoning is when you look at all the known facts, and seek to form the best explanation to explain the data.  Abductive reasoning seeks to find the "inference to the best explanation" for the known facts.   

This is a vital way of thinking and investigating that all serious Christians should be engaged in....

"5 Reasons the Christian Worldview is Unique: #5 - It is RESPECTABLE"

(Part 5 of 5) This is the final installment of the five part series, which has highlighted five unique and special features that are peculiar to the Christian worldview and philosophy.

In this last teaching, I discuss the

RESPECTABLE

nature of the Christian worldview by contrasting the historical character of Jesus of Nazareth with other founders of world religions.  Christ is

RESPECTABLE

by comparison, based upon the fact that He has made superior claims, has superior evidence, sets a superior moral example, and has created a broader historical impact than any other religious figure in mankind's history.

For this reason, and the other four previously mentioned, a sincere seeker of truth would do well to start their spiritual quest by investigating the Christian worldview and philosophy before any other.  It is uniquely Verifiable (through evidence); Compatible (with reality); Central (having Jesus as it's foundation); Receivable (as a free gift, requiring no performance); and Respectable (it's founder is superior in every regard).

I encourage you to honestly, sincerely investigate the evidence and proof that exists for this most unique and one-of-a-kind worldview, Christianity.

"5 Reasons the Christian Worldview is Unique: #4 - It is RECEIVABLE"

(Part 4 of 5) In this short video teaching, I discuss another very unique and special feature of the Christian Worldview, when contrasted with the approx. 25 other world religions, namely that it is

RECEIVABLE

.

By this I mean that instead of having to perform a list of duties, execute certain commands, or being obligated to undergo rigorous rituals, the Christian faith is one in which the believer comes to an understanding of the historical facts concerning Jesus of Nazareth, mentally accepts the truth claims that He made about Himself and man's condition, and then simply

RECEIVES

the accomplished work of Christ on their behalf.  

Out of all the world's religions today, only in biblical Christianity must you absolutely nothing but

RECEIVE

this "gift" that has been achieved through the work of Jesus of Nazareth on the cross.  All religious systems and secular philosophies today are man's attempt to reach up and touch the Transcendant, the Ultimate.... God.  But only in Biblical Christianity do we find where God Himself reaches down, to touch and rescue finite man.
