  • carm bottomHelp 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


  • "Just a short email to thank you for such good teaching and defense of the true word of God. In today's world there is so much error and I really thank God for you and your ministry. I pray that you will continue to be strong and that God will protect you, your family and your ministry from the evil one so that you may continue this wonderful ministry."
  • "I just wanted to say that love the show, unfortunately i am only available to hear it in its podcast form. But it's a daily routine for me to listen to that podcast every morning while at work. I like most subject matter on the show, but my favorite is listening to Matt debate the atheists. I tend to enjoy the actual debate format, so both parties can talk and present their arguments in a organized manner.  Great ministry and dedication from the whole CARM team, bless you guys." JP


  • "I have listened to your interviews with William P Young and I have been to the CARM site and I have many concerns.  First of all you hurt my faith and relationship with the Lord.  You have created this image of the Lord being totally unapproachable and a God that rules with a baseball bat ready to strike anyone who falls short.  I can understand where you are coming from but I also understand William Young's approach and I feel Young's approach is needed in the world because people don't understand that Jesus died for our sins and that he bore all of our sins on the cross so that we can be saved from our sin...I feel you discount messages, no matter how good, because of a theological error, no matter how small, that may not even impact the overall message....Your words hurt me deeply because I know it pains the Lord to see this type of polarization happening in the Church, His Church.  I feel your testimony is very harmful to the church and people who are searching for Jesus and don't know about His grace.  It's not about words and knowledge, it's about a relationship with our Lord Jesus.  A deep, intimate relationship.  I don't pretend or try to understand the Lord, I just know that he sent Jesus to die for our sins because He loves us.  I know I have him and I know he has me in his hand.  I am sorry for my objections and concerns but I ask you respect them and try to see it from my eyes." Mark
  • "I am getting sick and tired of you CARM censors attacking this Gnostic Christian for posting my Gnostic Christian beliefs. You are not God nor do you have a monopoly on Christian beliefs. What you CARM bigots are doing is carrying on religious warfare against Gnostic Christians who have every bit as right to their Christian beliefs as you do. If you had any recognized higher level religious scholarship behind your type of fundamentalist Christian views then I might be able to recognize valid and honest intellectual criticism. But you guys don't bother with honesty or intelligence. All you care about is protecting your own belief system from criticism by getting rid of the criticism and the critics. This is intellectual cowardice and not fitting for any Christian who believes the truth shall set you free. Please stop your prejudicial and unfair attacks on my posts. You let fundies post their views without censorship so why pick on me? Well, we know why you do it but religious warfare is unnecessary for those of us who do follow Jesus and God's teachings which need no strong arm protection." Stephen
