Needs

  • Join us in prayer, CARM expansion - CARM seriously needs prayer.  As best as I can tell, the needs of CARM are so great that we have got to move into an office and get a staff.  However, to do this, we need to have funding.  We must pray and seek God's will in this and the related issues.  The battle for this country's (and others') faith, culture, society and morality is worth fighting for and we are in serious need of Biblical truth!  CARM hopes to produce videos, teaching manuals, etc., for churches and families to help equip them to stand firm in the faith and refute error.  Also, we don't want to be passive in our Christianity. We want to be aggressive in a positive way doing what the Scripture says in 2 Cor. 10:5, "We are destroying speculations and every lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ."  So, please pray that God would prepare a staff, provide a location, and enable its funding.  There is so much to do...  Please join us in prayer.  
  • Video Camera - We are beginning research into getting a much better video camera.  The one we have is great and produces excellent videos for the Internet.  But now, we have need of one that will be good enough to produce DVD/Blu-Ray level videos that can be watched on HD TV's because we are going to start working on hour-long teaching videos.  It appears the price range for the Cameras is between 2000 and 3000 dollars.  If you know about cameras and want to recommend something, please email us at [email protected].  Thanks.
  • Help CARM with a simple click - Social networking is becoming a very important part of the Internet. With ministries like CARM, in order to stay relevant and show up on the first page of Google search, it is necessary for us to use Facebook, Twitter, and Google +1.  You can help us a great deal by going to CARM and clicking on any article that you like and "liking" it with the Facebook button and if you are registered with Google, you can click on the Google plus. You can also tweet the web addresses on twitter. When you do this it will significantly help CARM in search engine placement. This is important because, for example, the Mormon church is making a very strong effort at trying to get top rankings in all of the searches for things like Christianity, Jesus, gospel, Mormonism, etc. So, if you want to help the kingdom of God, help CARM, and help promote the gospel, please consider going to CARM and clicking on articles, going to the bottom of the article and clicking on the social network options. It would be a big help.
  • Amazon Wish List - Please consider the CARM's Amazon wishlist.  There is a list of things that CARM could use and some things that would just be helpful. Please consider participating in the expansion of the kingdom of God by helping CARM acquire some of the items listed there.
  • Facebook - If you want to help CARM quickly and easily, please go to the CARM home page and "Like" CARM.  It only takes a few seconds and it will really help us out.  Thanks.

Bullet Points


Love and Hate Mail

Love

  • "Message body Hi Matt and thanks for responding. Your website is really great!! I just finished reading an article you wrote about Troy Brooks! I think its sad that Troy has nothing else to do then try to argue with his fellow Christian brother. I think Troy may have some psychotic issues. You probably should not talk to him at all since you know he is only trying to make himself out to look like a theologian. Anyone who goes on a website under 50 or more different usernames must obviously have some kind of mental sickness or something like that. And the fact that Troy keeps breaking some of the rules on CARM shows us what type of a person he is. Keep doing the great work you are for God and do not let people like Troy bother you! God bless you Matt! In God's love!"
  • "I just discovered your website and I think it is a HUGE blessing! Great information and discussions. Apologetics is not often taught in churches. As a Sunday school teacher, I want to teach people (and learn) how to defend my faith. God’s blessings, Mike"
  • "I just found your site tonight when I was looking for something about Christianity and homosexuality. I found the article very interesting and it expresses my feelings pretty much exactly. I have been having a hard time seeing some Christians being so supportive of this lifestyle. I have some friends (not close ones though) and a cousin that are homosexual and I do love them but that doesn't mean that I have to approve of or condone their lifestyle. Anyway, I really enjoyed the article and went on to read Mr. Slick's testimony which I found to be very good and I'm not sure why others wouldn't want to hear it. I have bookmarked the page and plan to read some more of the articles later. I am really glad to hear someone affirm that we should love the homosexual and treat homosexuality as any other sin but also state that it is sin and shouldn't be accepted as an alternate lifestyle by Christians. Thank you."

Hate

  • "First of all, I am a Latter Day Saint. I have browsed you sight and find you severely lacking in the knowledge about us and our beliefs. I know there are a few things that can't be explained, however, there are many things that you need to understand. First, we do believe in the same Jesus that is in the Bible. I find it hard to believe that we are worshiping a 'false Jesus'. Second, we do believe that there were multiple gods that created the earth, but not some random Deity. We believe in the same Gods you do: Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. We believe that Jesus created the earth with guidance from Heavenly Father, therefore more than one God. We do NOT believe in multiple random Gods like the ancient Egyptians or something like that. Finally, I would appreciate it if you would stop dragging down other religions in an attempt to declare yourselves as the 'one true church'. I don't mind you comparing and contrasting the two, however, when you say our church is 'of the devil', that is little more than slander, not spreading your gospel. You have the same mentality as the extremist Muslims as in: "Our religion is right, everyone else is wrong and is going to hell because they're different." I am very tolerant with religion, and I have many Friends with differing faiths, it's people like you who simply bash other religions with a limited knowledge that irk me. Don't tell me that you want to 'spread the Truth' or all that bull, because we spread our gospel as well and we do not need to criticize other religions to do it. I am not an official spokesperson for our church, though I can point out many flaws in your perception of Latter Day Saints. Despite what you say, your material IS offensive and tears at other churches. Thank you for your time, and if you have any responses or questions about this, please write me back."
  • "I would like to address that, as an Atheist, you do not understand what it really means to be Atheist. There are Christian Atheists out there, believe it or not. And from observation of history, Atheists have been more moral than most Deist faiths, because they don't have a higher power to "do this in the name of..." And because your entire faith is based on fear (fear of retribution for your actions), you're less likely to reject a simple delusion on the basis that it may just be God speaking to you. It's like a kid who's abused by his parents, but because they nurture him occasionally, he still loves them. So at the end of the day, would you rather follow a faith that would enable such dangerous potential and then justify it on the basis of divinity, maintaining the threat-level because you're liable to listen to it again; or would you like to take responsibility for your own actions, recognize that you don't need an invisible force to determine what you should and should not do, and save the world from further oppression and acts of bigotry obscured by "love"?
  • "Does Matt Slick still teach Jesus is a Man outside of time and space?  Does Matt Slick still teach that people don't deserved to be saved since they are born into sin?  If so this is continued evidence Matt Slick was never born again.  Keep praying for him to receive the Jesus of non-gibberish babble, non-montanism, non-amillennialism and non-calvinism. He doesn't want to have the Jesus who will return to reign on earth for 1000 years (Zech. 14.4, Acts 1.11, Rev. 1.7, Jude 14,15, Rev. 20.4). He doesn't want to let go of his pride of assuming he was irresistibly regenerated, and that he had no choice in the matter to be given the grace to have the choice to repent and believe in Christ to be regenerated. God has confirmed Matt Slick is going to Hell. Perhaps if he learns about the Total Lunar Tetrad he will come to appreciate Daniel's last seven is 2,520 days and that Jesus is not reigning right now with a rod of iron over the nations since they are still deceived, they still war. Why be delusional about Rev. 20.3? What grace has been given to you that you are alive during the soon return of Christ but still reject Him."
