CARM.org – Christian Apologetics and Research Ministry

As Uni4M aims to promote unity within the body of Christ by sharing free Biblically sound Christian resources, we present another great Apologetics resource.

The Christian Apologetics and Research Ministry (CARM) is a nonprofit, non-denominational, multi-staffed Christian Apologetics Ministry that supports evangelism, radio outreach, and provides full-time support for several foreign missionaries. 

On their website they describe their mission as “defending and promoting the Christian faith in all areas of life”. They go on to explain that the reason for their website is ” to equip Christians with the truth, to expose the error of false religious systems, evolution, atheism, secularism, etc., and also to teach apologetics, help Christians defend the faith, and glorify the Lord Jesus”.

For more information about this ministry and the numerous free resources they have made available for the defense of the Gospel of Christ, please visit their website.

CrossExamined.org

CrossExamined.org is a non-profit ministry started in 2006 that conducts dynamic I Don’t Have Enough Faith to Be An Atheist seminars on college campuses, churches, and high schools. Led by Frank Turek and other Christian apologists, CrossExamined.org exists to address the problem that 3-out-of-4 Christian youth leave the church while in college, many because they are intellectually skeptical. In addition to I Don’t Have Enough Faith to Be An Atheist, CrossExamined.org presenters address other topics faced by young people today.

Youth Apologetics Training

The Youth Apologetics Training ministry focuses on pertinent topics in culture, which includes issues such as creation/evolution, science and the Bible, Buddhism, Zen Buddhism, the New Age Movement, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism, witchcraft (including wica), Mormonism, Jehova’s Witnesses, the Unification Church, Christian Science, Scientology, Word of Faith, and the New Apostolic Reformation.

Founder of Youth Apologetics Training, Michael Boehm

Below is an excerpt from the ministry’s website:

This ministry is for the new Christian as well as for the seasoned saint.  Don’t think that just because this ministry has “Youth” in the title, that we ministry has little for you to glean.  We at YAT believe that today’s youth are far more intelligent than many give them credit for.  In this blog and podcast, we go deep and explore some of the most advanced apologetics ideas and worldviews you will find out there.  The difference is that we believe in teaching these often-difficult subjects in a way that is easily understood and digested.

Real Life with Jack Hibbs

I was recently sent a YouTube video of Jack Hibbs speaking to Don Stewart in a Biblical prophecy update in his series called “Happening Now”. I found this video quite enlightening and in line with Biblical prophecy and principles. For anyone interested in Biblical prophecy and wanting to know where we are in the prophetic timeline, these updates are quite insightful and eye opening. The latest video (as at the time of writing this article) is embedded below.

Bible Prophecy – Happening Now with Don Stewart (Jan. 2020)

Jack Hibbs is the Senior Pastor and Founder of Calvary Chapel Chino Hills in Southern California. You can visit his ministry’s website, Real Life with Jack Hibbs, and YouTube channel to find more videos and resources.

Below is an excerpt from his ministry’s website to provide more information about the ministry.

Have you listened to Jack Hibbs teach? Or watched him on TV? Well, if you have, it doesn’t take very long to figure out that Pastor Jack is passionate about life! That might be an understatement.

This passion comes out of his deep understanding that God, who came to earth in human skin, has through Jesus Christ provided the way, the truth and the life. Our relationship with God, broken because of our sin, can be restored through Him. Jesus said He came to give us “abundant” life. That’s real life done God’s way!

Our relationship with Christ and His instructions about the Christian life should impact every area of our being. That’s right! God’s Word – the Bible – speaks to the real life issues we all face. Depression. Joy. Suffering. Forgiveness. Peace. Fulfillment.

We trust that Real Life with Jack Hibbs is a place you will be encouraged. Listen to the daily radio programs featuring Pastor Jack’s teaching. Watch insightful interviews and discussions on our Real Life TV program. Take advantage of the resources we offer as you grow in your relationship with God. Finally, be encouraged by the Real Life Devotional by Pastor Jack.

It is our hope that through Jesus Christ you will know Real Life!

BeliefMap

BeliefMap is an apologetics tool designed for navigating four main questions that the gospel depends on: “Does God exist?”, “Is Jesus a real historical figure?”, “Does Jesus stand out as if God’s chosen?”, and, “Did God raise Jesus from death?” We aim to produce a comprehensive research tool that maps academic responses and counter-responses to these questions. BeliefMap is designed as an encyclopedia to be quickly navigated, in an interactive choose-your-own path format that feels like conversation with an expert.

More broadly, BeliefMap aims to Equip, Encourage, and Evangelize.

• We Equip Christians working to share their faith with skeptical friends and family, by providing them with a sort of pocket-apologist to train them, as well as consult and guide their live discussions.

• We Encourage Christians who are doubting by providing a customized tool for addressing their personal concerns.

• We Evangelize seekers who are exploring the truth-claims of Christianity (particulary claims central to defending the the good news of Jesus Christ), to see if it is justifiable and defensible. BeliefMap aims to be an academically rigorous resource which demonstrates and advertises that Christianity is intellectually distinguished, so that the gospel of Jesus Christ cannot be rationally dismissed or ignored.

Dr Michael S. Heiser

Dr Michael S. Heiser is a Scholar-in-Residence at Logos Bible Software. He holds a MA in Ancient History from the University of Pennsylvania, as well as MA and PhD degrees in Hebrew Bible and Semitic Studies from the University of Wisconsin- Madison.

Below is an excerpt from Dr Heiser’s website, explaining what he aims to accomplish through his online ministry.

In a nutshell, my homepage, podcasts, other websites, and writing all aim to produce quality content for people who want certain things:


1. Serious academic content for understanding the Bible in its own context, unfiltered by creeds and traditions — but made decipherable to those who don’t live in the ivory tower. In other words, I view it my duty as a biblical scholar to make scholarship comprehensible to the interested non-specialist. You could think of me as a missionary to the church in terms of exposing the normal person-in-the-pew to serious academic scholarship on the Bible and biblical theology. I believe it’s a critical need. Most churches today are more about perpetuating their denominational subculture or keeping those who attend adequately entertained than making them think. In my experience, every church has five or six people in it who are desperate for content — who are withering from content malnutrition. The rest of the people in churches don’t know they’re malnourished. I’m here to help. If you sense that there’s got to be more to the Bible than self-help platitudes and Sunday School lessons with adult illustrations, and that Jesus just has to be more than a cosmic life coach, you’re in the right place. I write at the Naked Bible blogand teach through the Naked Bible Podcast with you in mind. You’re also the person I had in view when I wrote The Unseen Realm: Recovering the Supernatural Worldview of the BibleThe book is a bestseller, despite the fact that it’s not available in stores. That was deliberate. You know that no one walks into a Christian bookstore looking for serious content. I know it, too.

2. Serious academic critique of the cyber-twaddle you find on the internet about the Bible and the ancient world. Think Ancient Aliens or Zeitgeist and you get the idea. It irritates me that people are presented with shoddy, intellectually indefensible blather disguised as research. This is why I was in the YouTube documentary Ancient Aliens Debunked(millions of views). It’s why I blog at Paleobabble. It’s why I critique the ideas of the late ancient aliens theorist Zecharia Sitchin, whose books have been translated into over twenty languages and sold tens of millions of copies. It’s why I do interviews on fringe / alternative history talk shows. Someone has to say something. I may not be able to stop the madness but I can be a voice of sanity.

3. Serious Christian engagement with modern alternative worldviews and the paranormal. Our culture is fascinated by ghosts, psychic phenomena, near death experiences, UFOs and extraterrestrials, and conspiracy theories. Movies featuring superheroes, vampires, artificial intelligence, and mutants are the rage. Why? They constitute an alternative to theism and Christianity. Science fiction and the paranormal capture the imagination by offering a means to our own divinity and glimpses of other realities. Space is heaven without the biblical God. The paranormal offers an escape from deterministic materialism and spirituality without centralized authority. It all satisfies the yearning for the transcendent and a destiny of becoming more than human, whether by modifying our bodies (transhumanism) or evolving with supernatural assistance that isn’t an (allegedly) angry deity. The message is simple and ancient: we will be as gods. Rather than belittle those who have rejected Christianity in favor of this new religion or denying someone’s anomalous experience, my goal is to help people consider that perhaps the problem isn’t the Bible, but the inside-the-box (or head-in-the-sand) thinking that often characterizes Christian approaches to these subjects. This is why I blog at UFO Religions, speak at UFO conferences, write sci-fi paranormal thrillers (The FacadeThe Portent), and host the Peeranormal.
