        Our Reasons to Believe passage from the Word of God today is 1 Peter 3:15. It reads, "But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear." Our Reasons to Believe quote for today is from Norman Geisler. He said, "While many have doubted the accuracy of the Bible, time and continued research have consistently demonstrated that the Word of God is better informed than its critics. In fact, while thousands of finds from the ancient world support in broad outline and often in detail the biblical picture, not one incontrovertible find has ever contradicted the Bible." Our Reason to Believe powerpoint today is titled "The Attributes of God" part 4 from "The Handbook of Christian Apologetics" by Peter Kreeft and Ronald K. Tacelli: God Is Eternal Since God is not material, he is not spatially limited. That must be true, for God is the Creator of space and all the constantly changing material things which occupy it. Now the measure of that change is what we call "time." Is God in time? Can he be temporally limited? We experience ourselves as temporally limited. But most of us believe that human beings are more than just material things, and that something more is what we call "spirit." But our spirits or souls are finite in nature and tied to our body's matter. And therefore time is an intimate part of the way we experience our being --- even our spiritual being. It takes time to think, as well as (for us) to be. That is why we can often feel separated from ourselves by vast physical, intellectual and moral distances in time ("How small---naive---carefree I was back then!") God cannot be subject to time. For God is the Creator of everything that changes: everything that raises a question about its own being. All beings subject to time raise that question. God cannot be like that. This unboundedness by time is called "eternity." Boethius's famous definition of eternity goes like this: Life without limits, possessed perfectly and as a simultaneous whole. His words are very suggestive. But they clearly convey one essential thing: God is not bound by the kind of changing being which time measures. That is what we mean in the first place when we say that God is e-ternal (nontemporal). The Incarnation does not contradict this; rather, it presupposes it. The Incarnation means that God took upon himself, in Christ, a human nature, which included time, space and matter. This presupposes that the divine nature is different from human nature. Part of that difference has traditionally been seen as God's not being limited by time, space and matter. Only if a bird doesn't swim in the ocean but flies in the air can it enter the ocean from above; only because God is not temporal, can he become temporal.

            Our Reasons to Believe Scripture verse for today is Acts 2:38-39. It reads, "Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, [even] as many as the Lord our God shall call." Our Reasons to Believe quote for today is from Norman Geisler. He said, "While many have doubted the accuracy of the Bible, time and continued research have consistently demonstrated that the Word of God is better informed than its critics. In fact, while thousands of finds from the ancient world support in broad outline and often in detail the biblical picture, not one incontrovertible find has ever contradicted the Bible." Our Reason to Believe powerpoint today is titled "Addendum on Religion and Morality in The Argument from Conscience for the Existence of God" from "The Handbook of Christian Apologetics" by Peter Kreeft and Ronald K. Tacelli: In drawing this connection between morality and religion, we do not want to create any confusion or misunderstanding. We have not said that people can never discover human moral goods unless they acknowledge that God exists. Obviously they can. Believers and nonbelievers can know that knowledge and friendship, for example, are things that we really ought to strive for, and that cruelty and deceit are objectively wrong. Our question has been: which account of the way things really are best makes sense of the moral rules we all acknowledge --- that of the believer or that of the nonbeliever? If we are the products of a good and loving Creator, this explains why we have a nature that discovers a value that is really there. But how can atheists explain this? For if atheists are right, then no objective moral values can exist. Dostoyevsky said, "If God does not exist, everything is permissible." Atheists may know that some things are not permissible, but they do not know why. Consider the following analogy. Many scientists examine secondary causes all their lives without acknowledging the First Cause, God. But, as we have seen, those secondary causes could not be without the First Cause, even though they can be known without knowing the First Cause. The same is true of objective moral goods. Thus the moral argument and the various metaphysical arguments share a certain similarity in structure. Most of us, whatever our religious faith, or lack of it, can recognize that in the life of someone like Francis of Assisi human nature is operating the right way, the way it ought to operate. You need not be a theist to see that St. Francis's life was admirable, but you do need to be a theist to see why. Theism explains that our response to this believer's life is, ultimately, our response to the call of our Creator to live the kind of life he made us to live.
