| August 16, 2013

Post Author: Darrell (This post originally appeared on Darrell’s Thoughts and Reflections on Aug. 5, 2013 and is being reposted here for Tough Questions Answered readers.)

Is the Biblical Canon Closed? Part 2

| August 17, 2012

Post Author: Bill Pratt This is a profound question for the Christian church.  Every year, there are new cults that emerge where a charismatic leader claims that he or she has received a revelation from God that must be added to the biblical canon.  In fact, this is exactly what happened almost 200 years ago […]

Did The Church Fall Away?

| July 22, 2011

Post Author: Darrell One of the foundational teachings of Mormonism is that shortly after the death of the Apostles, the bulk of mankind rejected the teachings of Christ and the Apostles, and the world fell away from the plain and precious truths of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  As a result, the Church and the […]

Do the Creeds Matter? Part 2

| January 3, 2011

Post Author:  Darrell In my last post, I conducted a poll as to whether or not the Nicene Creed is relevant and authoritative in Christianity today.  Thus far, the results are as follows:  48% believe it to be both relevant and authoritative, 21% believe it to be relevant, but not authoritative, and a relatively small […]

Do The Creeds Matter?

| December 13, 2010

Post Author:  Darrell I recently spent some time on a Christian Facebook page that ministers to Mormons.  It is mostly made up of ex-Mormon Christians who feel very strongly about their faith and want to reach out to Mormons.  They write articles explaining the differences between Traditional Christianity and Mormonism and the problems with Mormon Theology […]

Analogous God-talk ultimately tells us what God is like, but it does […]

Do Mormons Worship the God of the Bible? Post 7

| June 11, 2010

Post Author:  Darrell When comparing the nature of the Mormon Jesus to the Jesus Christ of the Bible, several significant differences become readily apparent. Deut. 6:4 tells us emphatically that God is one in nature: “Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one.” In addition, in John 10:30, Jesus tells us that […]
