Wait, ‘Cars 3’ Is About Millennial Entitlement?

The director of Pixar’s upcoming movie Cars 3 was recently interviewed by Entertainment Weekly, and had some interesting things to say about the third installment of the franchise centered on anthropomorphic race-cars. Brian Fee explained that the movie is a sort of analogy about generational differences: McQueen is not the young hotshot anymore, the kid he was back then in Cars 1. He’s in the middle of his life, and as an athlete, that’s getting up there. You have your whole life ahead of you, yet your career is starting to show its age. His comments take an interesting turn when he discusses the movie’s new villain the tech-savvy “ Jackson Storm.” EW says the the character is meant to embody “the extreme entitlement that has come to plague millennial descriptions”: Jackson was born with a silver spoon in his mouth. Everything comes easy to him, and everything about him says he’s faster, so much so that we’ve designed him so that even when he’s standing next to McQueen, McQueen looks old … He thinks the world is his. He’s taking over. He’s owed it. The first trailer took the movie in an unexpectedly dark direction with, McQueen getting in a violent car crash with the words, “From this moment, everything will change” flashing on screen. Previously Pixar head John Lasseter told EW that the studio wanted to give the franchise a heavier tone: It’s a very emotional story. It’s a little bit more akin to Cars 1, where you get into a deep emotion with him. It’s really a special story. It’s very emotional.

Watch the Trailer for 'I Am Not Your Negro' Written By James Baldwin

From the mind of legendary author, poet and speaker James Baldwin comes the movie I Am Not Your Negro. The movie is based on a book Baldwin had begun called Remember This House. It was set to look at the lives and deaths of Medgar Evers, Malcolm X and Martin Luther King Jr.—all prominent figures in the fight for civil rights who were violently assassinated in their primes. Baldwin died before he could finish the book—leaving only 30 pages behind. Raoul Peck, the filmmaker behind Fatal Assistance, Lumumba and Murder in Pacot, is using I Am Not Your Negro to provide an up-to-date conclusion to Baldwin's manuscript. The film shows the deep connections in America's history between the Civil Rights Movement and the Black Lives Matter movement. It uses documents and footage from archives and juxtaposes it with current events and asks poignant questions about the assassinations of those three leaders in the larger scheme of the country's history. This, like the Netflix documentary 13th, is likely going to be one of those movies that everyone should see. It is out in theaters Feb. 3 nationwide. Warning: The trailer contains strong language and use of the "n-word."

Q & A With Dr. Craig: Are My Arguments Totally Nonsensical?

It seems that your following can only be pretending to agree with - and accept - your arguments, because they feel that they are supposed to understand them in order to be considered Christians. But in actuality, your arguments require more credulity to accept, than the core concepts of Christianity itself. You seem to be of the view that: it is difficult to challenge your arguments. This is not because they are good sound arguments; it is because they are totally nonsensical.

Worshiping with a Broken Heart

I walked into church the day after my heart broke. Broken, aching hearts fill the pews in each of our churches every Sunday. I walked into church the day after my heart broke. Although surrounded by community, the pain still felt intensely personal. “The heart knows its own bitterness” (Proverbs 14:10). The deep ache can feel as isolating as a prison cell. The enemy wants nothing more than to lock believers in that cell of pain, and keep us trapped in isolation. But God wants the opposite. Here are three things to remember when you are tempted to stay home on Sunday morning with a broken heart.

Do these models in fact have the implications which Hawking attributes to them, and will cosmology play successfully the role of a surrogate religion? In the dialogue between science and theology, philosophy plays a crucial role. In this talk, Dr. Craig will respond to Hawking's claim to have eliminated the Creator of the Big Bang.

Do Your Career Choices Show You Trust in God or Yourself?

Knowledge and education are vital to surviving in our world. At young ages, we are sent to school to better understand the world in the hopes of successfully navigating it. Those who have not lacked education are among the most privileged individuals on this planet. Is it possible to be too educated? Absolutely not. But a danger we face with education is thinking we are in control of our lives and our future. After all, that’s the message sold to us in society: Go to college and you will get the perfect job. Get a 4.0 GPA and you will most likely end up in a high-paying job. Chase your dreams and you will be happy, the list goes on.

How Would Jesus Spend?

Money is one of those topics that can make some of us feel immense shame and guilt, and it makes others of us feel superior. But what if financial well-being was not just about how much money you had but about learning to relate to it better, not based on whether or not you had more money but rather based in how you’ve matured and embraced who you are and how God designed you? There is no money mold that God handed down from on high because, ultimately, it’s really not about money at all. It’s about you, God and how you and God partner together to build the Kingdom with what He’s given you.

'Third Wheels' Are Actually Great for Your Relationship

From Ephesians 5 and elsewhere, we understand that the main purpose of marriage, is to put the Gospel on display. In this image, the husband loves sacrificially like Christ loves the Church and the bride responds in confident service. They prefer and serve each other in a beautiful dance that puts Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers to shame. In this performance, couples are given the honor of reflecting God’s beacon of love in the Gospel message. An isolated couple might as well cover the illumination they’ve been entrusted with because no one can see it anyways. If you are a Christian in a marriage relationship, you have been entrusted with beautiful truths that are meant to shine bright for ALL to see, not just those who have lots in common with you.

The One Surefire Way to Ruin Your Marriage

And if I may add, in the Hebrew translation of the Bible, God uses the word “Ezer” to describe Adam’s wife. It’s easy to look at the way woman is described in Genesis to simply be a “helper” for man. But the full meaning is much more beautiful than that. The root of “Ezer” is two-fold: 1. to rescue, to save 2. to be strong. So instead of just being a man’s helper, we’re called to be strong in their weakness. To fill the gaps of our spouse with strength. So if your spouse is forgetful, instead of having an unrealistic expectation that they’ll start remembering things, be their reminder.

5 things we learned this week - Premier

The decision by a university to warn theology students in advance they may find Jesus' crucifixion distressing and allow them to leave the class if it's too upsetting, is being branded "almost comedic". Reacting to the decision by the University of Glasgow, former-Moderator of the Free Church of Scotland Revd David Robertson said they should be prepared to encounter upsetting content. Speaking on Premier's News Hour, he said: "These are meant to be university students, they're meant to be the leaders of the future, they're meant to be our intelligentsia. If they can't cope with basic stuff like that, then one wonders whether they should be studying it all."

Why Keeping a Sabbath Should Be Your New Year's Resolution

Which is a decent enough justification to placate our conscious until we hear how serious God is about Sabbath: “Observe the Sabbath, because it is holy to you. Anyone who desecrates it is to be put to death; those who do any work on that day must be cut off from their people.” (Exodus 31:14) Or begin questioning what God was really up to on that seventh day: Why did God rest? Was He weary from His work? Was His rest a withdrawal from the world? What’s so holy about a nap? And then we read the Gospels and see a sea of instances where Jesus capitalized on the fact that it was the Sabbath, almost as if He wanted to reclaim the essence of its beauty, depth and sacredness.

All of Life as Worship

But this morning we are picking up on another point from last Sunday and the Sunday before. Namely this: if the vital essence of that inner experience we call worship is a being satisfied in God or a cherishing Christ as gain above all things, this accounts for why Romans 12:1–2 portrays all of life as worship. You remember that I asked last week, “Well, what is the Christian life if God cannot be served by human hands but loves to serve us? What does life look like?” And the answer would seem to be that we get up in the morning and we get our hearts fixed on Christ. We go to him and renew our satisfaction in him through his word. And then we enter the day seeking to express and increase that satisfaction in all that God is for us in Jesus.

God’s Work in Your Bible Reading

A spiritual taste of the soul [1 Peter 2:3] mightily helps the soul, in its reasonings on the word of God, and in judging of the true meaning of its rules; as it removes the prejudices of a depraved appetite, and naturally leads the thoughts in the right channel, casts a light on the word of God, and causes the true meaning, most naturally to come to mind through the harmony there is between the disposition and relish of a sanctified soul, and the true meaning of the rules of God’s word. Yea, this harmony tends to bring the texts themselves to mind, on proper occasions; as the particular state of the stomach and pallet, tends to bring such particular meets and drinks to mind, as are agreeable to that state. (Edwards, Religious Affections , cited in Sweeney, 74–75)

Are Young People Really Leaving Christianity? | Cold Case Christianity

Book Findings : Nearly 25% of the 18- to 29-year-olds interviewed said “Christians demonize everything outside of the church” most of the time. 22% also said the church ignores real-world problems and 18% said that their church was too concerned about the negative impact of movies, music and video games. 33% of survey participants felt that “church is boring.” 20% of those who attended as a teenager said that God appeared to be missing from their experience of church. Many young adults do not like the way churches appear to be against science. Over 33% of young adults said that “Christians are too confident they know all the answers” and 25% of them said that “Christianity is anti-science.” 17% percent of young Christians say they’ve “made mistakes and feel judged in church because of them.” Two out of five young adult Catholics said that the church’s teachings on birth control and sex are “out of date.” 29% of young Christians said “churches are afraid of the beliefs of other faiths” and feel they have to choose between their friends and their faith. Over 33% of young adults said they feel like they can’t ask life’s most pressing questions in church and 23% said they had “significant intellectual doubts” about their faith.

When Depression Descends, Do the Next Thing

Have you realized that most of your unhappiness in life is due to the fact that you are listening to yourself instead of talking to yourself? Take those thoughts that come to you the moment you wake up in the morning. You have not originated them, but they are talking to you. They bring back the problems of yesterday, etc. Somebody is talking. Who is talking to you? Your self is talking to you. Now this man’s treatment [in Psalm 42] was this: Instead of allowing this self to talk to him, he starts talking to himself. “Why art thou cast down, O my soul?” he asks. His soul had been depressing him, crushing him. So he stands up and says, “Self, listen for a moment. I will speak to you.” ( Spiritual Depression , 20–21)

Best of 2016: Tabletalk Magazine

“ Some people fill in their lottery tickets, lie back on their sofa, and hope their numbers will finally come in. But such a hope is uncertain, and it is temporary even if it comes to pass. Our hope is so certain that it actually lives. Our joy and certain hope for the future are tied up in the fact that He rose again (1:20–21). Don’t forget, Peter was a guy whose whole life was crushed when Jesus was killed. All of Peter’s greatest hopes died with Jesus.”

34 Fierce Convictions: The Extraordinary Life of Hannah More? Poet, Reformer, Abolitionist eBook: Karen Swallow Prior, Eric Metaxas: Kindle Store

I have just finished reading "Fierce Convictions -- The Extraordinary Life of Hannah More: Poet, Reformer, Abolitionist". I knew a little about Hannah More (1745 - 1833) prior to reading this book, particularly that she was one of the Clapham Sect, with William Wilberforce and other abolitionists of the late 18th and early 19th centuries in England. But "Fierce Convictions" makes clear that her brilliant work as an abolitionist is only a small portion of the story of Hannah More's life. Karen Swallow Prior has done a marvelous job of writing a thorough, balanced biography of Hannah More, who accomplished so much in her lifetime that it's mind boggling. She was certainly a celebrity in her day, and deservedly so. In her long and prolific life, Ms. More wrote acclaimed poetry, plays and a novel, started a school for women, spoke persuasively to the upper classes of England about moral reform, and reached out to the poor of her area by starting Sunday schools, which were vehicles for teaching literacy. One should remember that Hannah More did all these things at a time in history when being a woman was a liability, and to be seen doing any public work at all was considered unseemly.

If you’re wearing a coat already, you don’t go in there and put the new coat on over your old coat. That would be silly, because you’re not going to know if it fits! It makes sense to take off the old one before you put on the new one.

Marijuana to the Glory of God

God is glorious beyond measure, and Christians seek to experience the reality of his glory, for the sake of his glory. Sin has distorted our vision and corrupted our world. Ever since sin first entered the world, all of us have been born spiritually dead, unable to discern the true glory of God (Ephesians 2:1–5; Colossians 2:13; 2 Corinthians 4:4). When we experience the redemptive work of Christ through the Holy Spirit, we are awakened to the reality and beauty of God (2 Corinthians 4:6). But until we see him face to face, we still see his glory as through a glass dimly (1 Corinthians 13:12). As redeemed believers, we are on a journey to knowing him without obstruction. Therefore, we do not want to distort reality; rather, we aim to know him as he really is. We want to see things as they really are.

Should Churches Discipline Gay-Affirming Members?

Earlier today, I participated  in a debate for a radio program about homosexuality and church discipline. The program is “Up for Debate with Julie Roys,” and three of us were debating this question: “Should Churches Discipline Gay-Affirming Members?” I argued that they should. The other two guys argued that they shouldn’t. Here’s the description of the show from the website:

What We Need to Learn from the Early Church

Why? It was expected that people would have their own gods, but that they’d be willing to show honor to all other gods as well. Nearly every home, every city, every professional guild—including the empire itself—each had its own gods. You couldn’t even go to a meal in a large home or to a public event without being expected to do some ritual to honor the gods of that particular group or place. To not do so was highly insulting, at the least to the house or community. It was also dangerous, since it was thought that such behavior could elicit the anger of the gods. Indeed, it was seen as treason to not honor the gods of the empire, on whose divine authority its legitimacy was based. 

Weddings: Don’t Break the Bank

But, of course, this is not an attack on joy. Just the opposite. It is a plea for drinking from the deepest pools of joy, not the peripheral puddles of happiness. Godly poor people regularly have more joy than rich people. There is no correlation between expensive and joyful — none. Unless it is this: more expensive means more hassle, more stress, more distraction — less joyful. This is a plea to leaders to cultivate an expectation of simplicity so that no one with modest means — and that is a lot of people — feels like a simple wedding with a mints-and-nuts reception — no meal, no dance, just joy — is somehow less honoring to the Lord and the couple. That is tragic if we have cultivated a situation like that.

Chapter 24, Sec. 3-Chapter 27, Sec. 1 by John Gerstner | January 7, 2017

Building Faith Muscles in Your Kids

Last week, I got to have a nice conversation with my eighteen year old son about some different things that's been on his mind. He told me that he's been mulling over concepts of predestination and free will, and reading up on the subject.  We discussed the Calvinist and Arminian models as well as Molinism . We also talked about the nature and purpose of salvation and touched on creation models.

Stop Worrying About Being a 'Good Person'

For I know that good itself does not dwell in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For I do not do the good I want to do, but the evil I do not want to do—this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it. So I find this law at work: Although I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God’s law; but I see another law at work in me, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within me. What a wretched man I am! (Romans 7:18-24)
