The Monthly Report

Mikel is back! Even though apologetics isn’t about apologizing, today’s post begins with an apology to my readers: I’m sorry the blog hasn’t been updated much apart from a daily tweet or two recently. I’ve been super-busy teaching and preparing my apologetics training materials. But the good news is you’ll soon be able to benefit from the […]

But what I’m talking about is my invitation to speak to the young adult (18-30) group next Tuesday night at 7:00 PM (Aug. 3). I’ll be discussing the importance of knowing […]

Mikel to Speak at Bayside

Update on the Bayside Apologetics Conference: I’ve just been invited to speak at a special pre-seminar breakfast entitled “Why Does God Allow Suffering?” happening right before Tim Muehlhoff and J.P. Moreland present on the second day of the conference. This is an important question I hear a lot of people asking, especially in light of our tough economic […]

Do Faith & Reason Mix?

You just saw me use Lego Indiana Jones to begin a discussion about faith and reason. Here’s what came next. See how I help students discover that Christians don’t need to check their brains at the door in order to have faith. I take 5 minutes to teach a simple concept: biblical faith requires reason. But that’s not all. Biblical faith requires that we […]

I was pleasantly surprised to […]

Leading Youth Workshops at Biola

Next weekend, I’ll be leading apologetics workshops for the Regeneration youth conference at Biola University in La Mirada, CA. As a Filipino-American and a former missionary to the Philippines, I’ve got some unique ties to this event. Regeneration Ministries was started by Filipino-American students who saw their disillusioned peers, disconnected from Filipino-immigrant fellowships, leaving the […]
