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.

A Fresh Defense of the Faith: The Laws of Logic and God

AfterLife BOGO Package - Christian Research Institute

If there was ever a need-to-know book,   AfterLife   is it. On his daily call-in radio show, the most common questions Hank fields are about the hereafter. For instance, millions are voraciously reading about the near-death experiences of young children. Consumers are desperate for knowledge and reassurance about what comes after life on this earth. Hank Hanegraaff, one of the most remarkable theological minds of the twenty-first century, explains the marvelous way this physical life connects our past to our eternal future.   AfterLife   gives readers a clear and concrete understanding about what happens after death to us and to those we love.

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!

Practical Apologetics: The Peter Principle

I have written in the past about the dangers of abandoning apologetics in the Church (see: Apologetics: Never Having to Say You’re Sorry ).  In that article I had taken issue with the number of believers who rely on a blind faith rather than being able to “give an account for the hope that is within you,” as Peter put it (1 Peter 3:15).  Another part of the problem is the mental connection that apologetics has with academia.  Not only does this connection tend to relegate apologetics to higher education or the clergy, it also compartmentalizes apologetics into an intellectual or theoretical endeavor that does not have real and practical use for the layman.  I have the highest respect for the professional apologist, and indeed, rely on their knowledge and research.  I also think that without a practical application for all Christians, the field would be nothing more than knowledge for knowledge’s sake.

Christians Never Outgrow the Gospel - Jonathan Morrow

D o Christians ever outgrow the Gospel? I mean isn’t the Gospel what you heard in Sunday school or vacation Bible school when you were a kid? Surely we are beyond that now right? Nope–not if we really understand how wonderful and radical the Gospel truly is.

Do You Exercise for the Wrong Reasons?

The biblical take on exercise is not “Life is short; let your body go.” Rather, with God’s revealed truth ringing in our ears, we say, “Life is too short to not harness the body God gave me.” Our assignment in this age is a vapor. We are “a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes” (James 4:14). Too much is at stake, and our days are too few, to limp our way through by not leveraging our bodies (as we’re able) as the gift from God they are.

Lies, Darned Lies, and Planned Parenthood

In fact, according to Live Action President Lila Rose, “Our investigators who wanted to keep their babies were turned away by 92 out of 97 Planned Parenthood centers . . . Despite its claims, abortion is the priority and the only option for pregnant women that visit Planned Parenthood.”

18 The Briefing 01-26-17 -

Here we need to look at the fact that biblical Christianity, Christian orthodoxy, biblical theism as we might describe it, absolutely requires adherence to biblical terminology. If we free ourselves from biblical terminology, we are actually abandoning the God of the Bible. As one great literary scholar said during the 1980s, this is a God who definitely likes his name. He has the right to name himself. And in Scripture he does so over and over and over again, even declaring in the Ten Commandments “Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain.” He names himself. The creature does not get the right to name the Creator. The Creator has the sovereign right to name himself, and in Scripture it is abundantly clear that God is not male in the sense that he is a spirit who has no body. But it is consistently true in Scripture that God reveals himself in terms of masculine language, including naming himself as Father.

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.

Jesus Is A Myth, Just Like President Kennedy

There are lots of skeptics who try to deny the historicity of Jesus just because he allegedly shares some similarities with gods or mythologies that pre-date him . Truth be told, the similarities related to Jesus are more fiction than reality , but even if they were all true (like those I’ve listed related to Kennedy and Lincoln), the mere existence of similarities does not invalidate the historicity of Jesus (or Kennedy, for that matter). If we’re prepared to say that Jesus is a myth just because he shares a few characteristics, we better be ready to tell the world that there was never a president named John F. Kennedy.

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).

23 Mexico City Policy, Christian Persecution, and the Intolerance of the Tolerant at Women's Marches

Christian Persecution Continues. Religious persecution extends well beyond India. The global refugee crisis is “exacerbated by religious persecution,” according to a new report by Open Doors UK and Ireland. A statement by the group said persecution plays a “central role in the global displacement crisis.” The charity surveyed 50 countries and found that more than half of the world’s 65.3 million refugees come from Somalia, Afghanistan, and Syria. These are countries “in which identifying with the Christian faith was, or had become, extremely dangerous.” About half of Syria’s 1.7 million Christians have left the country. About 2.1 million Nigerians “have fled their homes because of various factors, including the attacks on Christians by Boko Haram jihadists.” Even Mexico has what Open Doors calls “village-level displacement,” caused by “Christians [being] driven from their villages for practising a faith that differed from that practised by the majority.”

Apologetics in the Wired World: Recovering the art of Christian persuasion

One of the effects of this level of globalization is plain. Active and interactive communication is the order of the day. From the shortest texts and tweets to the humblest website, to the angriest blog, to the most visited social networks, the daily communications of the wired world attest that everyone is now in the business of relentless self-promotion—presenting themselves, explaining themselves, defending themselves, selling themselves or sharing their inner thoughts and emotions as never before in human history. That is why it can be said that we are in the grand secular age of apologetics. The whole world has taken up apologetics without ever using or knowing the idea as Christians understand it. We are all apologists now, if only on behalf of “the Daily Me” or “the Tweeted Update” that we post for our virtual friends and our cyber community. The great goals of life, we are told, are to gain the widest possible public attention and to reach as many people in the world with our products—and always, our leading product is Us.

30 Evangelicals for Life 2017 - Be a voice for life

The value of human life isn’t just an issue for Congress or activists or ethics professors. It’s an issue for every single Christian and every single local church. The church is the embassy of the Kingdom of Christ, and the Kingdom is where the unborn are prayed over, where the widows are visited, where the orphan is adopted, and where the disabled and the “unwanted” are made heirs with Christ of the universe. The church must speak a prophetic, gospel word to our culture of death. The cause of life is not a liberal vs conservative or red state vs blue state issue. It’s a Kingdom issue, and children of the King must stand up in defense of all human life. Will you join us as we do just that?

Is Jesus the Creator God?

That is, God the Father, whose voice was never heard, nor his shape seen by angels or men; for though Jacob, Moses, the elders of Israel, Manoah, and his wife, are said to see God, and Job expected to see him with his bodily eyes, and the saints will see him as he is, in which will lie their great happiness; yet all seems to be understood of the second person, who frequently appeared to the Old Testament saints, in an human form, and will be seen by the saints in heaven, in his real human nature; or of God in and by him: for the essence of God is invisible, and not to be seen with the eyes of the body; nor indeed with the eyes of the understanding, so as to comprehend it; nor immediately, but through, and by certain means: God is seen in the works of creation and providence, in the promises, and in his ordinances; but above all, in Christ the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person: this may chiefly intend here, man’s not knowing any thing of God in a spiritual and saving way, but in and by Christ 11

Trump’s Inauguration Speech: Two Feet Firmly Planted on Our Fallen Earth | The Stream

Trump’s foreign policy principles are clearly drawn from that same Jacksonian heritage, which does not use lofty promises of global transformation that are sometimes hard to distinguish from Jacobin or Leninist rhetoric. Instead, Trump speaks plainly of defending our national interest in a fallen and perilous world. How often over the past 16 years have our decisions on crucial questions, from Iraq to the “Arab Spring,” been distorted and rendered delusional by universalist abstractions, which ignore the stubborn facts on the ground in Fallujah or Benghazi.

Pro-Woman, not Pro-Abortion

The Women’s March was, Yoest concluded, a “wholly owned subsidiary of the abortion movement.” And were it not for the unexpected coverage by the Grey Lady, these organizers may have succeeded in drowning out the pro-life message.

5 Ways to Find Community Outside Your Comfort Zone

One of my closest Christian friends is named Christian. We found we were kindred spirits over lunch at the school cafeteria. A few months later he told me if it wasn't for my unrelenting persistence and overbearing honesty, he wouldn't have felt comfortable engaging in a real spiritual conversation. It took a random kid on a personal, community-building journey for relationship to happen. We’ve never attended the same church, but Christian is an integral part of the faith family I've built.

New Poll: Majority of Americans Want Bans on Late-Term Abortions and Abortion Funding |

In addition 59% of Americans believe abortion is morally wrong, 78% agree it is possible to have laws “which protect both the health and well-being of a man and the life of the unborn,” and only 31% believe abortion improves a woman’s life compared to 50% who believe abortion “does more harm than good.”

10 ways to overcome culture shock — Southern Equip

Until the abnormal becomes normal, and you figure out how to keep your cultural shock absorbers in good condition, you may start mentally packing your bags when the going gets tough. You need to remember why you came and decide once and for all whether you want to be there. When you settle that, write it down somewhere so you can remember when hard times hit again. Culture shock never goes completely away, it goes underground and springs up whenever life is hard or doesn’t make sense.

The Biblical Undercurrents of 'The Crown'

It’s true that I am not an earthly heir to a throne, but those who are of Christ are a part of a “royal priesthood“ (1 Peter 2:9). Like Queen Elizabeth, discovering our new life and new identity can be challenging and is often a journey. In reality, becoming who we are in Christ is a lot like becoming a royal of a nation—we are constantly revealing aspects of our new identity. Like the Queen, our new life in Christ does not come without lost, suffering and imperfection.

The Creator of ‘The Path’ Has Some Really Interesting Thoughts on the Rise of Religious TV

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.

Liam Neeson: God Is Love. If God Were a Stern Master, I Would Have Given Up the Faith

I think Ferreira’s idea of God was ultimately one of love, but this is what I choose to believe myself. If God were a stern master, I would have given up the faith long ago. God is love, love is God. I have had personal experiences of God’s love, beautiful and calming, all the things the Psalms talk about. If he was a stern master, well, I don’t know.

Obama Gave $221 Million in Aid to the Palestinian Authority Moments Before Leaving Office

Years ago, Congress approved the aid package (twice, in fact, in 2015 and 2016), but two Republican lawmakers placed a hold on it, preventing it from being released. They said that they took issue with the Palestinian Authority attempting to become official members of some international organizations. However, the “holds” aren’t legally binding. So, in order to prevent any additional hang-ups with lawmakers, the Obama administration made the move just before Trump was sworn in.
