Recitations

The Book of Hebrews

Presented as a sermon on the supremacy of Christ, this recitation from memory of the Book of Hebrews will help you see an old, familiar book in a fresh new light.
(45 minutes)

Philemon

A brief and highly personal book, Philemon recited will give you insight into the love of Christ as practiced by the Apostle Paul.
(5 minutes)

That was nothing short of magnificent. The power and confidence of your presentation of scripture is awe inspiring.

Lectures

Proving God

Deductive Proof of Monotheism
Presenting, explaining, and defending a simple proof that a rational, omnipotent, omniscient creator God exists, and that there is only one such God.

Proving the Son of God

Deductive Proof of the Shared Deity of the Image of God
It's easy to prove that a creator God exists, but in this lecture, in addition to deductively proving that God exists, all of McCabe's deductive arguments will be combined to demonstrate the deductive necessity of not just God, but also of His Son.

Presuppositional Apologetic Methodology

How to Discern the Most Critical Differences Between Worldviews
Presuppositional reasoning is often mocked, ridiculed, and misunderstood. However, it is one of the best ways to accurately represent both one's own view, and one's opponent's view. It is also particularly adept at enabling the apologist to discern the root of error in the non-Christian's view.

Attributes of God

What is God Like?
Dealing with complex theological difficulties, this presentation covers God's omnitemporality, omnipresence, omniscience, omnipotence, and moral character. Dealing with common objections such as the Euthyphro Dilemma, knowledge of tensed facts, and whether omnipotence entails contradictions, these difficult abstract concepts will become much simpler.

Is God Evil?

Stephen Law's Evil God Challenge Dismantled
Even if we grant that God exists, why should we think that God is good rather than evil? The question is actually far sillier than it seems at first and, in analyzing the question, the foundations for Christian thought will be brought to light in stark contrast to the foundations of humanism.

World Religions and Cults (volume 2)

In Printed Form

"If, as you claim, morality is obeying god, how do you know that obeying god is good? Isn't that totally circular?"

If morality is obeying god, then obeying god is morality. If we grant the former, then the latter follows by tautological necessity. Is it circular? Insofar as tautologies are circular, sure. Here is another circular tautology: If 2 + 2 = 4, then 4 = 2 + 2. Totally circular. Malachi 3:18; Romans 4:15, 5:13; 1 John 3:4.

"Is there anything that troubles you personally about the belief system you adhere to? What is it and why is it troubling?"

The most troubling thing for me personally, and indeed this must necessarily trouble every Christian in some way, is that according to the Bible I am a sinner, deserving of death for my sins (Romans 3:23, 6:23). This does not trouble me because it seems to be untrue, but rather because it is so plainly true. All Christians must be troubled by this, because if they are not, there would be no motivation to repent and ask for the forgiveness of their Creator.

"What happens to people who don't accept what you claim?"

Nothing happens to people who don't accept what I personally claim. However, Jesus made some striking statements about those who do not accept HIS claims. He taught that the two greatest commandments were to love the Lord God with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength; and to love your neighbor as yourself. (Matthew 22:37-39) In Luke 16, Jesus tells a story about a rich man and a beggar named Lazarus.
