CHRISTIAN FAITH AND
LOGIC - MATTHEW J. SLICK
|This show we
deal with some classic themes and issues in Christian theology
as well as some matters less orthodox. We talk about how
to establish credibility and divine inspiration in scripture,
the existence of God, the nature and origins of logic, during
which guest Matthew Slick offers a somewhat unique argument for
the necessity of God's existence. We also deal with
matters of the nature of existence and the universe,
consciousness and how to begin to select one religion from
another in one's search for truth and spiritual substance.
A lively and fluid discussion!
Matthew J. Slick
My name is
Matthew J. Slick, President of
CARM. I am 49, married, have children, and live in Idaho.
Studying cults and apologetics is a passion and I have
spent more than 26 years doing it. In 1991, I graduated
from Westminster Theological Seminary with a Masters of
Divinity. I'm reformed in theology (but do not push it
on CARM), ordained, and my main goal is to point people
to Jesus. I attend a home based church
and am non-denominational at heart. CARM is not
representing any denomination.
CARM is linked to hundreds and hundreds of other
websites, has been quoted in Newspapers, magazines, and
on radio. It gets around 12,000 emails a year and about
28,000 page views per week on the home page; this is not
counting the page views internally to the site!
CARM is 501(c)3 non-profit, Internet based ministry
with three main goals:
Bring glory and honor to God.
CARM does this by presenting the gospel of our Lord and
Savior Jesus Christ....
Equip Christians in the truth.
CARM does this by providing information on Christian
Doctrine, theology, evangelism, and other subjects. The
goal is to present an accurate and biblical
representation of Christian truth and answer the
objections of critics of Christianity. Lead non-Christians to Christ.
CARM does this by answering objections, teaching
biblical truth, and promoting the saving gospel of
History of CARM
I began studying cults in 1980 starting with Mormons and
Jehovah's Witnesses. After a few months, a friend of
mine and I started a swap-meet ministry (flea market).
We set up a booth every Saturday for 2 1/2 years and we
passed out literature on cults, evolution, evangelism,
the new age, etc. It was there that I learned most of
what I know today -- by debating with hundreds of
people. Next, I began doing beach evangelism where I
dressed up like a punker (really), pierced my ear, and
carried a huge Bible. It was a very interesting
experience. Then there was the year when I put an ad in
a local publication that said, "Learn the truth about
Mormonism, Jehovah's Witness, Christian Science, and
Unity. Call - phone number." That too was very
interesting. Next came a position teaching evangelism at
a local church, then teaching Bible studies, then a few
speaking engagements, then college, then seminary, more
speaking engagements, pulpit supply, pastoring, radio, a
TV interview, the web, and getting Right Answers for
Wrong Beliefs published. CARM first appeared on
the Internet in October of 1995. Initially, I only
wanted to publish some of the information I had on
doctrine and cults. But, with the inundation of emails,
requests for information, the hundreds of links from
other sites, and the surprising joy it is to work on
CARM, etc., this ministry began to grow.
