White House Partners with Kickstarter for Campaign to Help Syrian Refugees

White House officials are hoping that Internet users will join together to help the millions of refugees who have fled violence in Syria’s on-going civil war. In response to a request from the White House’s Office of Digital Strategy, Kickstarter has teamed with the United Nations Refugee Agency for a one-week campaign to raise money for those effected by the crisis through crowdfunding. With more than six days still to go, more than $1 million has been brought in so far, but as the campaign notes, the need is massive: This year alone, half a million refugees have found their way to Europe. Many of them arrive exhausted, malnourished, and carrying the few possessions they could save. Six thousand more are arriving in Greece each day. Globally, more than half of the refugee population is under 18. Often, children end up separated from their loved ones, lost in strange new places … UNHCR is helping, in Europe and around the globe. And you can help them. At the invitation of the White House, we’re joining the effort to support their important work. Any money you give through this campaign will go directly to USA for UNHCR to provide aid to people who need it — everything from food, water, and warm clothes to special care for children separated from their families. They’ve even outlined different donation amounts, describing what impact as little as $30 could have in the life of a refugee. You can go here to give and learn more about the campaign to help Syrian refugees.

Mohler says new book responds to ‘moral emergency’ of sexual revolution | News - SBTS

“I am confronted daily with Christians who are asking one of the most basic questions and that is, ‘How did this happen?’” Mohler said in a recent interview with Southern News, noting he wrote the book to provide clear answers. “I think Christians are living with a kind of moral emergency they sense and see about them. And it’s not just what they see on the headlines and on the Twitter feeds. It’s what they hear from their kids and it’s what they see in their own neighborhood and it’s what they might see in their own church.”

Why Christians Need to Embrace a Changing Definition of Family

In other settings, these responsibilities fall to family or lifelong friends, but my husband, my kids, and I don’t have that support network here. Instead, the people God put next to us become the family we need for getting through hard times, for celebrating everyday joys, and for learning to live out our faith. Our practical family is not only a help for our physical needs but also spiritual ones, offering discernment in job situations, marital counseling, and parenting wisdom.

School Shooting Survivor: How I Stopped Being Afraid

When I was in eighth grade, I witnessed a fellow classmate—a neighbor I had known for years—shoot and kill my teacher with a rifle.

During that decade, I begged God for protection but held on to him in a fragile way, worried that he would let my world implode again without warning.

5 Things to Look for in a Church

We should be looking for a community that seeks to glorify God in all they do. Ultimately it’s this: when looking for a church, we should be seeking a unified family of believers that teaches the Word of God, that seeks to follow the example of Jesus while focusing all they do on Him, that speaks the truth but does so in love, that cares for those who are far from God, and that constantly seeks new ways to reach people with love of God.

7 crucial reasons why a pastor’s spiritual life matters to his church

Pastor, your spiritual health matters to your church. Your pursuit of Christ impacts your people. You know this, of course, but does your daily schedule reflect it? When you allocate time and energy toward the spiritual disciplines, do you do so with a view toward what is at stake? God’s sovereign purposes are not dependent on your maturity, of course, but the New Testament often speaks of the significance of a pastor’s spirituality to the health of his congregation. Consider the following seven reasons motivation for the pursuit of godliness and guides to praying for your own growth.

The Great Divorce

wow. this article really stirred up my wife's emotion but took me on a roller coaster. I have been blessed with a wife who has seen the dark side of me and has encouraged me that even that she loves about me. she has been such an amazing symbol of Christ to me and we can honestly say that if it was'nt for one of our married couple friends who we assist in marriage preparation, we would not be together but we support each other through this program as part of our Church. I don't know how extensive your research has gone but the Catholic Church offers Retrovaille, world wide marriage encounter and sponsor couples. I do agree that we do need to face the reality of divorce couples in our pews and offer support but it was difficult to agree with kids being more productive out of single parent homes. thank you for your article

Leaving Patriarchy in the Past

Stackhouse recognizes that most egalitarians will find his position too conservative. In mainstream Muslim cultures, for instance, he discourages Christians from trumpeting women’s rights too loudly, for the sake of preserving evangelistic opportunities. Nor will “soft complementarians” find Stackhouse a reliable ally, since he insists that “problem passages” from Paul and Peter mean what the vast majority of Christians in history understood them to mean: significant restrictions on women’s leadership roles inside and outside the church, and submission to male headship in marriage.

Male and Female He Created Them

Panelists discuss how they each came to a position of complementarianism, what complementarianism is not, and the enormous implications of moving away from the clear teachings of Scripture on gender roles.

5 Lies That Lead to Burnout

I bet your corporate and personal to-do list is at least a good 30-50 lines deep on a daily basis. Of all the books on time management I’ve forced myself to read, the one technique that finally put a dent in my addiction to busyness was to pick 3-5 of the most important items and complete them. If you don’t, you might start 100 percent of the items on your list, but you won’t finish a single one.

We Can Do Nothing

In John 15:5, Jesus says, “Apart from me you can do nothing.” So we really are paralyzed. Without Christ, we are capable of no good. As Paul says in Romans 7:18, “Nothing good dwells in me, that is, in my flesh.”

Arguments for the Creator Point to Inconsistent Worldviews

The LifeWay Research survey also found conflicting views from the atheists, agnostics, and non-religious surveyed when it came to the evidence for a Creator from the natural world. This group was more likely to believe that there is a Creator based on design of the universe than they were likely to believe in the existence of a creator based on the origins of human life. Without a more extensive and detailed survey, only speculation as to the discrepancy can be made. However, in the 20th century, as mentioned previously, our society was exposed to much more atheistic philosophy; a philosophy which entails that there is no ultimate meaning, purpose, or value to the universe and, therefore, to human life. Humans, according to this philosophy, are specks of dust in the enormity of a vast, indifferent universe. The undermining of the ultimate value of human life has most likely negatively influenced the view of the existence of human life as evidence towards an intelligent, personal Creator.

5 good reasons to read the entire Bible every year

During my lengthier-than-I-first-intended career as a seminary student, I followed the same practice and after a few years, I had read through the Bible several times. The results have been massively helpful for both my walk with the Lord and the teaching and preaching ministry he has given me. More recently, comments by two of my ministry heroes, John Piper and R. C. Sproul, have encouraged me to continue this approach to Bible intake. Piper: “When all your favorite preachers are gone, and their books are forgotten, you will have your Bible. Master it.” And then, there are these manly words from Dr. Sproul: “I’ll retire when they pry my cold, dead fingers off my Bible.” Words like those encourage me to stay saturated in God’s Word. Reading through it perennially is one means of accomplishing that.


“Nicholl breaks important new ground in the quest for the historical Star of Bethlehem. Not only does he develop a formidable case for identifying the Star as a great comet; he also proposes a fresh explanation as to what it may have done to so impress the Magi. Nicholl has a clear understanding of the relevant areas of modern astronomy, and especially of the nature, evolution, and orbital dynamics of comets as currently understood. This work will be of great interest to astronomers, theologians, historians of science, and the general public, and will hopefully stimulate important new lines of scientific enquiry.” Mark Bailey ,  Director, Armagh Observatory; coauthor, The Origin of Comets

Science: TV Makes You More Emotionally Intelligent

All that binge-watching might actually be helping you to have greater emotional intelligence . New studies published in the journal Psychology of Aesthetics, Creativity, and the Arts, show the results of experiments in which people were asked to watch critically acclaimed dramas like Mad Men, The West Wing and Lost and then took something called the "Reading the Mind Through the Eyes” test. The visual test asks participants to look at images of people’s eyes, and then accurately determine what emotion the individual reported feeling. The study participants who watched hours of prestige dramas performed notably better on the tests than those who just watch educational documentaries and people who watched no TV. It’s just another a reason to sit and watch Netflix all day.

The U.S. Is Soon Going to Release 6,000 Nonviolent Drug Offenders from Prison

In the coming weeks, 6,000 inmates will be released from federal prisons. The Justice Department has announced plans to lessen overcrowding by revisiting the strict sentences given to thousands of nonviolent drug offenders decades ago. The move marks the largest single , one-time release of federal prisoners in history. According to The New York Times , nearly a third of those that will be released are undocumented immigrants. They are expected to be deported immediately following their release. The others will be sent to either halfway-houses or be sentenced to house arrest. The U.S. Sentencing Commission said that retroactively applying new sentencing guidelines for drug crimes could eventually allow 46,000 inmates to be released early.

People Are Getting Buried Alive, Because Reality TV

Reality TV has hit rock bottom. Really. In A&E’s horrifying new show Fear: Buried Alive people will (as the title clearly indicates) be buried alive. Of course, it’s not being sold as a chance to torture our fellow humans (who, for the record, clearly have legit fears) but rather a “psychological” experiment, where participates will “endure a series of escalating horrors designed to test the strength of their psyches.” The press release goes on to justify this entertainment malarkey by noting “Studies show that when we willingly push ourselves outside of our comfort zone and face our fears, we come out feeling empowered and triumphant.” And, if they create some great footage of crying and freaking out, all the better, right? We think no. Just no.

Are Creationists Stupid?

I have merely argued that the belief that God created the universe is rational. However, I do also think it is an over-statement to say that skepticism about all-encompassing claims of Darwinian evolution is anti-science. (not that you were necessarily going quite that far) As Frank likes to say “science doesn’t say anything scientists do.” I don’t know of anyone who questions evolution if it is defined as change over time – however, if defined as a solely unguided process responsible for the full diversity of life forms then I think we’re dealing in a realm beyond what has been scientifically demonstrated. I’m fine with people pointing out how this type of view differs from that of many scientists etc. so long as they don’t just say that all creationists are stupid and evil etc. After all, it is quite healthy to encourage disagreement with whatever scientific theories are accepted at any given time – if no one ever questioned prevailing viewpoints we couldn’t make progress in science.

A must-read series of posts on cosmic fine-tuning by Allen Hainline

However, the assumption that any set of constants is just as likely as any other is the very thing that we want to know. Starting off with that as an  assumption  begs the question against design. As Luke Barnes articulates in this excellent podcast dealing with responses to the fine-tuning claim, suppose we’re playing poker and every time I deal I get a royal flush. If this continues to happen, you become increasingly convinced that I’m likely to be cheating. If I responded to an accusation of cheating by just saying “well any set of 5 cards is just as likely as any other so you can’t accuse me of cheating” you would be rational to reject this explanation. The question is not “how likely is any set of 5 cards?” but rather “how likely is it I’m cheating if I just dealt myself 10 straight royal flushes?” This question accounts for the possibility that I’m cheating which would almost certainly be true in this scenario. So the right fine-question is “given the fine-tuning evidence, how likely is it that the constants were set at random?” The values for physical constants conform to a very particular pattern – that which supports life.

30 Despite His Best Attempt, This Australian Man Can't Evade Cops by Driving into the Ocean

This week has started pretty well for poor-planning lawbreakers. First, a man in Italy called in a bomb threat to an airport in an attempt to avoid missing his plane. As you can imagine, he missed the plane after all. Then, today we find out a man in Australia tried to escape from police by turning right—into the ocean. And because of Internet, 7News captured the not-quite-Bond moment for all of us to enjoy. Of course, while the ethics of auto theft are pretty questionable, the vision for a high-speed car chase on the ocean floor is actually impressive. So, A for effort, mate.

Faithful Thinkers: As A Christian, Should I Celebrate Halloween?

Introduction Halloween is the day that kids dress up as their favorite heroes and go from door to door asking the same question: "Trick or treat?" Some people gladly dispense candy to add to the kids' collections. Some people see it as an opportunity to provide tracts explaining the occult origins of this holiday, and encourage the reader to come to Christ. Others completely shun the day and explain that those who participate in the festivities are enabling Satan to corrupt yet another generation of young people. Should I or Shouldn't I? Even though Halloween is not what it used to be (celebrated by the majority as an occultic holiday), I find myself still trying to figure out whether to recognize it or not. My family never participated in Halloween celebrations when I was a kid, so participation is foreign to me. Generally, I'm not a fan of the holiday because it uses way too many dark images and figures that are meant to instill fear in people. Fear Fear is an emotion that stimulates the pain center of the brain. Any time that the pain center is stimulated, it is because something is happening that needs to stop before further damage is done to the person.

Smells Like Comedy: Andy Kaufman Gets a New Fragrance

Does something smell funny? That’s Andy Kaufman’s new perfume. The late comedian is being immortalized by Los Angeles perfumery Xyrena, who is releasing a sent called “Andy Kaufman Milk & Cookies” in honor of the 40th anniversary of Saturday Night Live . As suggested by the name, the perfume smells like chocolate chip cookies and milk—a pairing inspired by Kaufman’s Carnegie Hall performance in 1979 which cumulated with him taking all 2,800 audience members out for, yup, milk and cookies. It's probably the new scent of romance. Stay tuned, the it will be officially debuted at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater during the Andy Kaufman Awards on Oct 11.

Believing in God is not Believing in Magic | Come Reason's Apologetics Notes

There can be no doubt that both the Old Testament and the New Testament were born in environments permeated with magical beliefs and practices. It should come as no surprise to find Moses contesting with magicians in Egypt, later identified as Jannes and Jambres (2 Tim. 3:6-8), as magic was a dominant factor in Egyptian culture. For Egyptians to attain to an afterlife they had to provide themselves with magical incantations such, as the Pyramid Texts in the Old Kingdom, the Coffin Texts in the Middle Kingdom, and the Book of the dead in the New Kingdom. Magic was also a potent force in other contemporary cultures, such as that of the Hittites. … Though magic and religion are not mutually exclusive categories, they have generally been understood to represent two different attitudes. Put simply, in religion one prays to the gods; in magic one commands the gods. In this sense Egyptian religion was, as often as not, magical. The Egyptian magician threatened the gods by gods by virtue of his magical power. This prime distinction between magic and religion, which is usually traced back to the pioneer anthropologists, E.

Ligonier Ministries

Dr. Sproul discusses three prepositions in this verse—"of Him," "through Him" and "to Him"—and what they teach us about the nature of God. In this lesson, we discover that God is the means and end of all things starting in Genesis 1 and everything results in God's glory. Finally, we discover that God sets the standard and is the source of all righteousness and good.

Does Romans 2:13 mean that we are justified before God by keeping the Law?

The Jews (and anyone else) can be justified before God by keeping the Law, but he or she has to be perfect. A person can’t fail even once--ever. But since all fail, that is why we have the gospel that tells us Jesus kept the Law perfectly (1 Pet. 2:22) and that we can be justified before God by faith in Him (Romans 4:3, 5, 5:1, John 1:12, 3:16).
