Today's New Reason to Believe

Author: Hugh Ross

Reasons to Believe emerged from my passion to research, develop, and proclaim the most powerful new reasons to believe in Christ as Creator, Lord, and Savior and to use those new reasons to reach people for Christ. I also am eager to equip Christians to engage, rather than withdraw from or attack, educated non-Christians. One of the approaches I’ve developed, with the help of my RTB colleagues, is a biblical creation model that is testable, falsifiable, and predictive.

I enjoy constructively integrating all 66 books of the Bible with all the science disciplines as a way to discover and apply deeper truths. 1 Peter 3:15–16 sets my ministry goal, "Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect, keeping a clear conscience."

    Those of us who are over 60 will never forget the chilling words spoken by the Apollo 13 command module pilot, Jack Swigert, and repeated by the mission commander, Jim Lovell, late evening on April 13 of 1970, “Houston, we’ve had a problem.”

    Our planet is endowed with extravagantly rich mineral ore deposits. How did we get them and why is it significant? It turns out that the source of these deposits is not indigenous; rather, large asteroid/comet strikes over the past 2 billion years produced Earth’s richest metal ore deposits.

  • Chilean Telescope Find Affirms Big Bang Creation Model

    August 10, 2020

    Many Christians affirm that God has given us two “books” in which he reveals himself the book of Scripture and the book of nature. The more we learn from the book of nature the more evidence we uncover for the trustworthiness and reliability of the book of Scripture. Two papers submitted to the Journal of Cosmology and Astroparticle Physics by an international team of 140 astronomers provide a recent example.1 Results from this considerable research effort deliver yet another confirmation of the biblically predicted big bang cosmic creation model.

  • How to Help Devout Jews to Not Reject Jesus

    August 3, 2020

    Many devout Jews recognize the Creator-God revealed in nature (Romans 1:20), but they reject Jesus as the Messiah. Why? And how should we respond?

  • What Does the Bible Say about the Modern Nation of Israel?

    July 27, 2020

    The Bible, especially the Old Testament, is filled with prophecies about future events in human history. The best known of these prophecies are the ones concerning the first and second comings of the Messiah. Many want to know if there are any Bible prophecies relevant to the time we are living in now, especially in regard to Israel.

  • Does the Book of Isaiah Teach the Trinity?

    July 20, 2020

    A cornerstone belief of the Christian faith, the doctrine of the Trinity distinguishes Christianity from all other faiths. This doctrine makes possible the redemption of sinful human beings and God’s eventual eradication of evil and suffering. Also, a trinitarian God enhances the free will capability of redeemed humans to experience and express his love. Due to its weighty implications, helping people of other faiths see the Trinity in texts they accept as sacred is a worthwhile endeavor.

  • Earth’s Deep Water Cycle Is Designed for Life

    July 13, 2020

    We’re all familiar with Earth’s surface water cycle. Anytime it rains or we boil water on the stove, we see that cycle in action. However, Earth’s deep water cycle doesn’t get the attention or appreciation it deserves. In fact, without a fine-tuned deep water cycle, civilization would not be possible.

  • It Takes a Dull Star to Have a Great Party

    July 6, 2020

    Some people, no matter what the occasion, are always the life of the party. They not only occupy the center of the action, but they instigate it as well. However, it is hard to sustain a lively party without others quietly serving in a consistently steady and dependable manner on the sidelines.

  • More Evidences for Biblical Claim of Unchanging Physics

    June 22, 2020

    One of the basic assumptions of physics is that the laws of physics are the same at all times and places throughout the universe. That constancy is foundational to the scientific method and is the basis for all scientific research. Recent advances are yielding an even stronger case for unchanging physical laws—a development that also supports the claim of ancient biblical texts.

  • Is Climate Change Real? Are Economic Sacrifices Needed to Stop It?

    June 15, 2020

    One of my motivations for writing my latest book, Weathering Climate Change, came from the repeated questions I heard at my outreach events and saw on my social media pages. One such question has been, If climate change is real, will immediate draconian economic sacrifices be needed to stop it?

    Two years ago at a major conference, a medical doctor/researcher who specializes in nutrition approached me. He took one look and said, “I know what you eat.” Amazingly, he identified nearly every item in my diet. His analysis gives credence to the adage, “You are what you eat.”
