Kirsten Powers testimony and interview

This is very significant how a liberal journalist and former atheist came to Christ.  The way she describes her conversion sounds like Reformed Christians call “irresistible grace”.  But God also uses the means of listening and reading for a year at a church, and interacting with people on a one to one basis and asking questions and seeing their good lives.  Debate or preaching formally at church is not the only means that God uses; usually He uses quiet outreach and hospitality and relationships and struggle and questions and answers in one on one or small group settings in a home over a meal or in a restaurant or over coffee.

About Ken Temple

I am a follower of Jesus Christ. I am a sinner who has been saved by the grace of God alone (Ephesians 2:8-9), through faith alone (Galatians 2:16; Romans 3:28; 4:1-16), in Christ alone (John 14:6). But a true faith does not stay alone, it should result in change, fruit, good works, and deeper levels of repentance and hatred of my own sins of selfishness and pride. I am not better than you! I still make mistakes and sin, but the Lord is working on me, conforming me to His character. (Romans 8:28-29; 2 Corinthians 3:16-18) When I do sin, I hate the sin as it is an affront to God, and seek His forgiveness in repentance. (Mark 1:15; 2 Corinthians 7:7-10; Colossians 3:5-16 ) Praise God for His love for sinners (Romans 5:8), shown by the voluntary coming of Christ and His freely laying down His life for us (John 10:18), becoming flesh/human (John 1:1-5; 1:14; Philippians 2:5-8), dying for sins of people from all nations, tribes, and cultures (Revelation 5:9), on the cross, in history, rising from the dead (Romans 10:9-10; Matthew 28, Mark 16:1-8; Luke 24; John 20-21; 1 Corinthians chapter 15). His resurrection from the dead proved that Jesus is the Messiah, the eternal Son of God, the word of God from eternity past; and that He was all the gospels say He was and that He is truth and the life and the way to salvation. (John 14:6)

    We just published our latest articles and rebuttals: http://answering-islam.org/New/new.html

    You will see a series of articles defending Petrine authorship of 2 Peter. You should also like this one where I show how Williams helped me expose Ally’s lies and deceit: http://answering-islam.org/authors/shamoun/rebuttals/ally/paul_circumcision_exposed.html

    Thanks, Sam. Trying to read your stuff; and Geza Vermes, Reza Aslan (both “no god but God” and “Zealot” – in the middle of both of them – since he is Iranian, he is very influential in the people I interact with – trying to understand his western, Sufi (as he claims) Liberal view of Islam – it doesn’t make sense, but I am seeking to grasp him. Many Iranians have the same thinking – hard to pin down; nothing is definitive or clear, all symbols and experiences and feelings of the transcendent.), Scott Oliphint (Covenantal Apologetics), Dr. White (listening to DL and going back slowly through his book on the Qur’an), etc. I have ADD – popping to too many open taps web-sites – my comments at Paul Williams blog is usually off the top of my head when I feel I have time to write something.

    Listened / watched about 3/4 of the debate between William Lane Craig and Bart Ehrman on the Resurrection. I can’t remember if Dr. White critiqued it. I thought WLC was doing pretty good so far.

    This one was put up by Nazam, but there is another one where I got through 8 out of 12 of 10 minutes each.

    I thought his 4 historical facts were good evidences for the resurrection:
    1. That Jesus was buried.
    2. The empty Tomb
    3. The resurrection appearances.
    4. The origin of the disciples/apostles belief in the resurrection.

    Trying to understand Presuppositional Apologetics and Scott Oliphint’s book. Dr. White makes sense when he explains it, and I see the problems with the way Mike Licona approaches and WLC’s Molinism and anti-Calvinism, but I also thought he (WLC) did a pretty good job with Bart Ehrman so far.
