Five Minute Apologetics

Video
Episode 1
How our desires point to God: a 4-minute video/excerpt of an interview of Dr. Peter Kreeft by Luuk van de Weghe about the Argument from Desire.
Episode 2
Jesus of Nazareth was a nobody in every aspect if you compare Him to the great men of History (Alexander the Great, Julius Caesar, Napoleon, George Washington, George Bush or Barack Obama), however He has impacted mankind more than any of them could ever imagine. Rob van de Weghe recounts his own reluctance to believe and his realization that Jesus was more than an ordinary man.
Episode 3
The Titanic vs the Resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth: every day we believe extraordinary claims on less than extraordinary evidences. A stranger wins the lottery. The odds are astronomical. All we need to be convinced is a single ticket, a piece of paper.
The resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth provides so much more than a winning ticket. It alone explains, grounds, begins, and justifies the most significant movement in world history. Naturalistic explanations do not even begin to touch it.
Episode 4
All information comes from an intelligent source. DNA in the first living cell contains extensive information. Therefore the information in the DNA of the first living cell came from an intelligent source whose intelligence and power are beyond anything ever discovered in the natural world.
Episode 5
Why does a good God allow suffering? Why is there suffering in the world? Why is not everybody healthy and wealthy?
The existence of evil and suffering is not a logical problem for theism; actually, it confirms the case for the existence of God as the Moral Lawgiver.
Episode 6
Why did Jesus die as the Lamb of God? Unless we know the answer, we are missing the big picture of the Bible. In this 2-part series, Ken Craig explains how the sacrificial system of the Old Testament reveals profound spiritual realities about holiness, mercy, justice, and eternity. Jesus did not die as a man molded by his time; He died as the Master of time itself, the Joint-Architect and the Fulfillment of an eternal plan to unite mercy and justice by the gift of an indestructible, holy life. He was the Lamb of God. Based on an interview by Luuk van de Weghe.
Episode 7
The Bible is a collection of 66 books: law poetry, history, and narrative, written by over 40 men, on 3 different continents, over a 1500-year period, in 3 languages. Yet the Bible is a single story with a main theme that runs from its beginning to its end. The Old Testament prefigures the New Testament, while the New Testament fulfills the Old. Ken Craig reflects on the incredible nature of this consistent theme in this 5-minute excerpt from an interview by Luuk van de Weghe. Part 2 in a 2-part series on the Scheme of Redemption.
Episode 8
Why did the universe come into being? What caused the universe to come into existence? There must have been a cause outside of the universe which brought it into existence. Therefore the universe has a cause which itself by definition is outside of the universe and is therefore a spaceless, timeless and immaterial causal agent - this is what most people mean when they use the word, "God."
Episode 9
Excerpt from Luuk VandeWeghe's interview with Dr. Phil Fernandes
"So they’re actually appealing to a moral standard above all individuals, all societies, any world consensus, and they’re acting like this moral standard doesn’t change with time! If that doesn’t imply the existence of a moral lawgiver above all individuals, all societies, any world consensus – and it’s the moral lawgiver that doesn’t change with time – I don’t know what does."
As a windmill depends on the wind, so mankind depends on God
