Watch Big Sean Perform His New Faith-Inspired Song ‘Sunday Morning Jetpack’ on 'SNL'

This weekend, rapper Big Sean was the musical guest on Saturday Night Live, and used the stage for a debut performance of his new, faith-inspired song “Sunday Morning Jetpack.” The song starts off with the lyrics, Thank you God for all my setbacks / 'Cause he the reason I'm able to give back / This feels like my Sunday morning jetpack / Feel like I sent the prayers up and got blessed back. The song references his upbringing, love for his family, church, prayer and faith: "It reminded me of how we used to dress up as a family and go to Sunday service and be at church singing / Ain’t been to church in while, but it ain’t just about how you praise him in the building, it’s about how you praising him while you out.” The song also references collaborating with Kanye West and Kirk Franklin, saying, “You the reason I ever touched my first Franklin / Fast forward, I'm in Kanye crib with Kirk Franklin.” Last year, Kirk Franklin took the stage with Kanye West on Saturday Night Live, and performed their song “Ultralight Beam” which featured a full gospel choir and even a prayer from Franklin.

Christians Never Outgrow the Gospel - Jonathan Morrow

Apologetics is for Everyone

Does any of that sound familiar? It should because it’s a picture of the times we live in. Christianity and the Bible are under attack from all angles, and if you believe in the God of the Bible, you’re viewed as someone who is antiquated and needs to get with it or shut up. While it is sometimes easier to keep our faith to ourselves, Christianity is a perfectly rational and defensible worldview. We do not hold to a blind faith. There is plenty of evidence and logic to back up our claims. As Christians, we ought to be ready to defend our faith against its opponents. The Apostle Peter tells us in 1 Peter 3:15 that we should always be prepared to give a defense to anyone who asks. This wasn’t a command he gave only to church leaders; it was for everyone, including you!

What They Don't Tell You About Pursuing Social Justice

I can easily agree with much of that. I too believe that relationship is a very important step in the process to sharing the Gospel. Earning the right to be heard is an important thing. We need to act and we need to be ready to speak. Sometimes the Lord brings opportunities to speak quickly, but many times it's a long haul. In my long years of ministry and practicing the Christian faith I have seen the pendulum strike both ends but rarely fall in the middle. I have seen many a believer, church, and denomination focus on sharing the Gospel with little or no concern for the needs of others beyond that, and I have seen many take on justice as the central tenet and as a result move off of the Gospel entirely. As you say, we must certainly do both, but I would add that one supersedes the other. I would debate as to whether or not Jesus's work centered on justice. It was a part of it for sure,and an important part which I am glad you are passionate about - but I don't think it was the center. The center is the Gospel of salvation - all things flow from that.

Why You Should Be a Christian Feminist

I live just miles from the plantation where Harriet Tubman lived and worked as a slave. The UGR runs a bike ride from our farm, so I am familiar with Tubman's story and I can tell you that fighting for the rights of women was not the motivation behind her cause. She paved a way for a race to experience freedom. Why is it so necessary to apply a label to a gender? Does the feminist label generate empowerment? A complimentarian role for women fits into the biblical context much more than feminist. I will,continue to reach mybdaughtets to breach deep inside themselves to make their mark in the world, that is true freedom. Assigning a label does not define a gender.

Is Your Conscience Captive to God?

Here is the supreme irony and tragedy of sin: the more we repeat our sins, the greater the guilt we incur, but the less sensitive we become to the pangs of guilt in our consciences. Paul says that people store up wrath for themselves on the day of wrath (Romans 2:5). That’s objective guilt — they are guilty because they have broken God’s law. But some people have so destroyed their consciences that they believe it really doesn’t matter what they do as long as it is consensual and they can see no harm. Their subjective guilt — their feeling or sense of guilt that accompanies wrongdoing — diminishes.

Secret Church

What to Do When We’re Prayerless

Often our first attempt at fixing our prayerlessness is to try and be “more disciplined” in prayer. We look at heroes, mentors, and peers who seem to have vibrant, powerful prayer lives and figure the solution might be doing what they do or did. If we get up earlier and use a more effective list or app or acronym we’ll fix our problem. Methods are necessary and beneficial as we’ll see, but “more discipline” is a false hope if faith is the problem.

Why Abortion Workers Need Our Forgiveness and Support

When I worked at Planned Parenthood, I heard a statistic that about 70 percent of people who work inside of Planned Parenthood clinics have had abortions themselves. So we’re dealing with seriously wounded people. And many times they don’t even know that they’re hurting. They know that they’re angry and defensive and don’t have joy. But they don’t know where it’s coming from. And so we have to use compassion. That’s the only thing that changes hearts. Telling them, “You’re a baby killer” or “You’re a murderer” doesn’t address the hurt in their heart. It doesn’t address where they are or how they got there in the first place. And it reinforces the stereotype that pro-lifers only care about babies.

Lay Aside the Weight of Insecurity

But if those promises are not satisfying to us — if we need other people’s approval to feel validated, if we find criticism or rejection debilitating, if we see a pattern of regularly disobeying Christ because we’re trying to escape or demand attention, or if we are caught in habitual or addictive sins through which we seek relief from our fears — then our insecurity is telling us we have an idol problem. We have a false god that needs to be knocked down, a sin-weight that must be laid aside (Hebrews 12:1).

How Can You Trust Christianity Is True If You Haven’t Examined All the Alternatives? | Cold Case Christianity

The case for Christianity is made in a similar way. While it may be helpful to examine a particular alternative worldview on occasion to show its inadequacies or errors, these deficiencies fail to establish Christianity as factual. How can you trust Christianity is true if you haven’t examined all the alternatives? The case for the Christian worldview must first be made affirmatively even if no other claim is examined negatively . If there’s enough evidence to reasonably infer Christianity is true, we needn’t look any further. The affirmative case will either stand or fall on its own merit, even if we’re unable to examine any other “suspect”.

3 Bad Reasons To Reject Christianity

As a former atheist (and really, an antitheist), there were many reasons why I was not a theist (nonetheless a Christian). Usually when the discussion of Christianity would come up I would have a few pocketed arguments I would reach for when pressed on the issue. You know, the usual, “Well I’ve met some bad people who are Christian, therefore I am not a Christian” or even the “All religion is evil!” argument. Or, I would just mock their lack of what I would call “intelligence” for even insinuating that Christianity could possibly be true. However, the more I learned about logic, Christianity, and my own personal biases, I realized that I was not being intellectually honest, open-minded, or rational. Surely, many reject the Christian faith for many reasons, some I have held in the past and some I have not. But, here are three (of many) poor reasons to reject Christianity.

Not long ago I met with a local pastor who had heard about The Poached Egg from a third party and was interested in finding out more about what I do. I was more than happy to oblige. One of the obstacles I commonly face with meetings like this is that I often have to start with an explanation of what apologetics is (yes, even with pastors) before I can even begin to get into why we need it, and more specifically, what my role in apologetics ministry is. Fortunately, this pastor was familiar with what apologetics is, but had thought of it as a discipline limited mostly to higher academia.

Faith is one of the biggest human questions that we all face. Most people in their lives will go through some kind of questioning at some point in their life. It’s rare to find a person that’s just born into something and then completely stays with it without some sort of grappling. And then people born without it, things happen — someone gets sick, or you have to deal with suffering, or you see something painful in your life. I think because it is such a human question. It’s something we all think about.

So, in order to prevent any additional hang-ups with lawmakers, the Obama administration made the move just before Trump was sworn in.

'Missionary Dating' Isn't Just Unbiblical, It's Selfish

"Unequally yoked" starts very much with whether or not they are believers. Yes, the original context isn't particular to marriage. But that's only half the story, isn't it? That passage isn't specific to anything that scholars have been able to definitively trace. That's because it's a general principle meant to be applied in numerous applications. If they don't serve Christ, you'll find yourself at odds with people whom you intend to enter any type of serious contract. Think about it: if a Christian enters into a business contract with a Muslim, they could very well have different extracurricular goals in mind. Sure, you can have common BUSINESS goals, but what might each do with their cut AFTER business is done? What if said Muslim happens to be funding certain organizations that cater to the demise of your brothers and sisters in the Lord? You have zero business with unbelievers, either, as far as a romantic relationship goes. You serve two different masters--unless your faith is a sham and you only use Christian thought and language to bless your secular idols. Until a commitment is made FIRST to Jesus Christ, you're kidding yourself in terms of your true loyalties! They--and you--need to come to a grave understanding that Christ is first in your life and that means you don't entertain high stakes relationships where Christ is not the center of attention, the focus of your purpose.

Are Mutations Part of the “Engine” of Evolution?

In the evolutionary model, mutations are hailed as a dominant mechanism for pond-scum-to-people evolution and provide “proof ” that the Bible’s history about creation is wrong.

Let’s look at mutations in more detail and see if they provide the information necessary to support pond-scum-to-people evolution, or if they confirm God’s Word in Genesis.

What If I Ruin My Kids?

5. Lastly, the sorrows that every mother will experience in giving birth and raising her children will be glorious sorrows. And what I mean is that, when a mother has sorrows — even over the forsaking of God, the forsaking of a family by a child — when a mother has such sorrows, it is a glorious sorrow because it is a partaking in the very sorrows that Jesus himself experienced at the one point where he compared himself to mothering: “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the city that kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to it! How often would I have gathered your children together as a hen gathers her brood under her wings, and you were not willing!” (Matthew 23:37). So, here we have Jesus comparing himself to a hen, a mother longing and aching and crying and praying out for the wayward children in Jerusalem, and they are not coming — and he is weeping over Jerusalem. Your sorrows as a mother are glorious sorrows because they share in the very sorrows of the Son of Man when he compared himself to motherhood.
