Does God Exist?

What evidence is there that a god exists? If a god doesn’t exist, certainly the God of the Bible doesn’t exist. And if the God of the Bible doesn’t exist, why should we behave like he does?

In this video, Dr. Fernandes presents a number of philosophical and scientific reasons that a god must exist. The evidence spans from the thoughts of ancient Greek philosophers to modern scientific discoveries. If you would like a great overview of the modern evidence, this video is a great place to start.

Did Jesus Rise from the Dead?: Phil Fernandes vs Mark Fulton

In his “Did Jesus Really Exist” presentation at the Worldview Apologetics Conference 2015, Dr. Fernandes mentioned this debate as a great example of how the Jesus Myth theory collapses before even basic scholarship. Here is the Summary:

“Institute of Biblical Defense (2014) – Christian philosopher Phil Fernandes and atheist Mark Fulton debate the resurrection of Jesus. Fernandes shows how incredibly radical Fulton’s views are and how out of touch they are with historical reality on Jesus of Nazareth. Fulton represents so many young gullible atheists who would believe anything about Jesus – but no serious scholar or historian would.”

Worldview Apologetics Conference Bellevue, Washington

Dr. Fernandes was recently invited to speak at the Worldview Apologetics Conference. THis year, it was  held at Westminster Chapel in Bellevue, Washington. Speakers at this prestigious event included (from the website):

” … Dr. Ravi Zacharias, Leader of Ravi Zacharias International Ministries, Dr. Doug Geivett, a professor at Talbot School of Theology, BIOLA University, Dr. Norman Geisler, Ph.D, prolific author, veteran professor, apologist, evangelist and theologian and Dr. E. Calvin Beisner, Ph.D., founder and national Spokesman of the Cornwall Alliance for the Stewardship of Creation.”

The event covered a number of popular level apologetics topics. These included (once again from the website):

“They will cover a myriad of topics that concern each of us in light of today’s worldviews from a biblical point of view. Some of the topics will address Apologetics for the 21st Century, Can Atheists Live by Bread Alone?, What is a Wise Christian Understanding of and Response to Climatic Change?, Is the Bible Without Error?, An Ancient Message for Post Modern Times Through Modern Means and more.”

Being part of this event, Dr. Fernandes had had the honor of sharing the stage with apologetics giants like Dr. Ravi Zacharias and Professor Normal Geisler.

While at this conference, Dr. Fernandes delivered three powerful presentations.

The first was titled Redating the Gospels. During his short presentation, Dr. Fernandes looks at the evidence for the traditional dating of the gospels. What evidence is there?

The second was titled Depraved New World. In it, Dr. Fernandes looks at how our new enlightened, secular culture is becoming one based on power rather than based on good and pure moral standards as we read in the Bible.

The third was titled Did Jesus Really Exist. Dr. Fernandes delivers an emotional response to the wacky “Jesus Myth” theory that so many youth believe.
