PREFACE

The author of this brief Doctrinal Catechism knows of no work of the kind in circulation among Baptists. Keach’s Catechism, generally called the “Baptist Catechism”, is scarcely used at all. No reason can be assigned for this, except that it is too difficult for children. In the present work, an attempt has been made to simplify, as far as possible, without sacrificing important truth. The teacher may have to give some further aid, by explaining a few words here and there. The aim has been to bring the truth taught within the comprehension of children of ten to twelve years old and upwards. The desire has been felt to promote catechetical instruction in the family and the Sunday School. It is believed that there are many who appreciate its value as a means of teaching the truth of God. To the attention of such, this little work is commended, with the hope that it may meet their wants. At the same time, Pastors of churches, Superintendents and Teachers of Sunday Schools, and pious parents, are urged to consider how far a partial recourse at least to catechetical instruction may tend to restore the vigorous piety of bygone days.

William Lane Craig vs. Frank Zindler

I listened to a debate today between Craig and Zindler on “Atheism vs. Christianity or “Does God Exist”?

William Lane Craig won this debate by a long shot. Frank Zindler offered no evidence whatsoever to prove that God does not exist. It seemed to me that he had problems or questions on whether the Bible was historically reliable, whether it actually means what it says, and with the ethics of the scriptures.

Craig on the other hand took Zindler to task and not only did he offer proofs for God’s existence, but he also countered all the fallacies of his opponent and all the twisting of the scriptures of his opponent.

I recommend that if you have time that you should listen to this debate. You can find the debate  by clicking right here.
