Pres. Obama: We Have to Take the Black Lives Matter Movement Seriously

Yesterday, President Obama spoke to law enforcement officials at the White House forum on criminal justice, and took some time to address and defend the Black Lives Matter movement. The phrase has become a rallying cry among activists calling for reforms in law enforcement and the criminal justice system after the several high-profile cases of unarmed black men and women being killed by police or while in police custody. President Obama directly addressed critics who have countered by insisting that “all lives matter." The president explained: Black Lives Matter is a social media movement that tried to gel around Ferguson, the Eric Garner case and some other cases that came up. And very rapidly, it was posited as being in opposition to the police. And sometimes, like any of these loose organizations, some people pop-off and say dumb things. On the other hand though, it started being lifted as “These folks are opposed to police. They’re opposed to cops, and ‘All Lives Matter.’” So the notion was, somehow saying “Black Lives Matter” was reverse racism or suggesting that other people’s lives didn’t matter, or police officers’ lives didn’t matter. And whenever we get bogged down in that type of discussion, we know where that goes … I think everybody understands all lives matter. I think the reason that the organizers used the phrase 'Black Lives Matter' was not because they were suggesting nobody else's lives matter. Rather, what they were suggesting was there is a specific problem that's happening in the African-American community that's not happening in other communities. And that is a legitimate issue that we've got to address. The president praised “the overwhelming majority of law enforcement” who he said are “doing the right thing and want to do the right thing.” He also said he recognizes “that police officers have a really tough job and we're sending them into really tough neighborhoods that sometimes are really dangerous and they've got to make split-second decisions.” He also said other large social issues should be acknowledged. “We as a society, if we're not investing in opportunities for poorer kids, and then we expect police and and prosecutors to keep them out of sight and out of mind, that's a failed strategy.” Still, he insisted that the issue must not be politicized and that the issue of police violence is a serious one, and that the concerns of the Black Lives Matter movement must be addressed: But having said all that, we as a society, particularly given our history, have to take this seriously. And one of the ways of avoiding the politics of this and losing the moment is everybody just stepping back for a second and understanding that the African-American community is not just making this up. It’s not just something being politicized. It's real and there's a history behind it and we have to take it seriously. You can watch the entire discussion below:

“During my time at Southern, above all, I was equipped with the knowledge of how to interpret the Bible and the wisdom for how to apply it in a church setting. But getting the opportunity to serve on staff in a local church as I was getting seminary education was, perhaps, my most important experience. Nearly every professor I had in seminary was pastoring or had been a pastor at some point. Their instruction and care for future pastors like myself made a lasting impression on me.”

At some point in our lives, all of us have faced new challenges to our faith. If you haven’t yet, just wait! Depending on our age and maturity, new challenges can be quite unnerving. I remember the first time I was confronted with the claim that Jesus was a mythological figure patterned after ancient near eastern “mystery religions.” Now I can see that this charge has little merit, but it was quite unsettling at the time.

What criteria do historians use to get to the minimal facts about the historical Jesus?

Have you ever heard Gary Habermas, Michael Licona or William Lane Craig defend the resurrection of Jesus in a debate by saying that the resurrection is the best explanation for the “minimal facts” about Jesus? The lists of minimal facts that they use are typically agreed to by their opponents during the debates. Minimal facts are the parts of the New Testament that meet a set of strict historical criteria. These are the facts that skeptical historians agree with, totally apart from any religious beliefs.

As I demonstrate in my recent book The Fate of the Apostles, the historical evidence for the martyrdom of Peter is quite convincing. From the first century onward, the unanimous testimony is that Peter died as a martyr (likely in Rome). And given both the early reference in John 21:18 (“…when you are old, you will stretch out your hands, and another will dress you and carry you where you do not want to go”) and that crucifixion was a common form of punishment for slaves and non-Roman citizens, the crucifixion of Peter is historically likely as well. But what about the claim he was crucified upside down?

Renewing Your Mind | The Christian Sexual Ethic | October 23, 2015

Perkins goes on to say that marital sex is a "due debt" or "due benevolence" (1 Cor. 7:3) that a couple owes to one another. That must be shown, he says, "with a singular and entire affection one towards another" in three ways: "First, by the right and lawful use of their bodies or of the marriage bed." Such physical intimacy by "holy usage" should be "a holy and undefiled action (Heb. 13:4)… sanctified by the word and prayer (1 Tim. 4:3–4)." The fruits of God-honoring, enjoyable sex in marriage are the blessing of children, "the preservation of the body in cleanness," and the reflection of marriage as a type of the Christ-church relationship. Second, married couples must "cherish one another" intimately (Eph. 5:29) rather than having sex in an impersonal way as an adulterer with a prostitute. Third, a couple should be intimate "by an holy kind of rejoicing and solacing themselves each with [the] other in a mutual declaration of the signs and tokens of love and kindness (Prov. 5:18–19; Songs 1:1; Gen. 26:8; Isa. 62:7)." In this context, Perkins particularly mentions kissing.

A Good Shepherd for Needy Sheep

The hope of all who look to heaven for help sings, “Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever” (Ps. 23:6). Beyond everything I can see right now, and lasting forever, is a gift that can satisfy and protect me long after all my enemies are dead and gone. That gift is God himself. He is the goodness better than any good we’ve seen or heard or tasted here (Ps. 16:11), and he is the shelter safer than any government or laws or armies in any nation on earth. The promises of our Shepherd flood every valley in this life with light, and reveal the path to never-ending, never-waning, never-in-danger-again peace and happiness.

Why You Shouldn’t Give Up On the Church

Jim, Calvinism teaches that the Holy Spirit irresistibly pulls us to the Father not because of our merit, but because of God’s unmerited favor. Anyone who understands that obviously would not suggest that salvation is a personal choice. To believe that “God loves everyone” has no biblical basis, and would make him horrific in condemning any of them, but he does. This is evidenced is Christ’s story about the selfish rich man in torment, crying out for the poor beggar Lazarus to bring him some water, and to warn his brothers against the torment. Having condemned all Calvinists I would presume that you are an Arminian, and believe that through some work of your heart, mind our courage, YOU CHOOSE CHRIST. To me, that is unbiblical and prideful.

The musicality itself is incredible, but the biblically and theologically rich lyrics are what truly sticks out for me in their music. I've thoroughly enjoyed every album they come out with, and I'm confident that this new Psalms album will be incredible. All to the Glory of God alone!

Hyatt Hotels Will No Longer Offer Pay-Per-View Porn

Following similar recent moves from both Marriott and Hilton, Hyatt has announced that their hotels will no longer offer on-demand, pay-per-view porn for guests. The group the National Center on Sexual Exploitation, which has been pressuring those in the hospitality industry to ditch adult content in recent years, released a statement saying it "is grateful to Hyatt for its policy change and commitment to oppose sexual exploitation.” The hotel chain didn’t say why it was making the change, though, as a the Los Angeles Times notes , the Internet and digital devices have changed the way many people consume any type of video content. They cited a study by PKF Hospitality Research that found “annual hotel revenue in the United States from in-room movie rentals—including adult films— dropped from $339 per room in 2000 to $107 in 2014."

Your Husband’s Infidelity Is Not Your Fault

A recent blog post from Anna Duggar’s mother-in-law Michelle carries that implication. When asked to share marital advice, the mom of 19 said that wives should always be available to meet their husbands’ sexual needs, even when they are exhausted or pregnant. “He can get his lunch somewhere else,” Duggar wrote. “But you are the only one who can meet that special need that he has in his life for intimacy…. So be available, and not just available, but be joyfully available for him. Smile and be willing to say, ‘Yes, sweetie I am here for you,’ no matter what.”

Why the Church Needs More Troublemakers

"Troublemakers are different—they talk about what they are for." This quote sums it up. There are many Christians "outside the visible church". They are in the Wilderness because they want the Church to Be More. To actually BE the Body of Christ. We need a new reformation in the Western Church. The old model of "pastor as lord" running and owning his own local church has got to go. It is stifling real spiritual growth. We need a return to the NT model of elders, deacons, prophets, evangelists, as well as pastors in leadership, not just the One guy. The head of the Church is Christ not a pastor. Today, most pastors are Bible teachers and not pastoral. Evangelists and prophets are excluded. And so the church stagnates.

Why Don’t Christians Talk About Sex After Marriage?

We could do a better job and have a sex-talk that is more than the usual "don’t have sex" talk. We seem to think that we’ve done our job if we’re sending our young people into the marriage bed as virgins. But things don't always happen that way, and even if they do, being a virgin doesn’t guarantee that you’ll have a good sex life. Either way, the amount of conversations I have had with young couples who have struggled with their sex life is staggering. And often, they feel like they don't have many places to turn to for help. Sex is found in a lot of areas of Scripture. It was designed by God. And we Christians need to speak up about it, in non-judgemental, honest ways.

David Was a Rapist, Abraham Was a Sex Trafficker

This reality makes studying sexual violence in Scripture all the more pressing. Paul said all of Scripture—including what we might consider the R-rated stories of the Old Testament—is God-breathed and can train us in righteousness (2 Tim. 3:16–17). It’s not that we skip over such stories, but that we tend to use euphemisms when telling them. We don’t pay close attention to the details, and as a result miss what the biblical authors intended to communicate. Stories not just of prostitutes, adulterers, and fornicators, but also of sexual predators and human traffickers, teach us profound lessons about God and his grace. He came to redeem all people, even those who are sexually violent, as the genealogy of Jesus shows.

How to Rest for Real

Everyone had different opinions. Frustrated, I turned to the Bible, at 5 a.m. as the sun was beginning to peek up and my coffee was brewing. Psalm 62 jumped out at me instantly: “My soul finds rest in God alone.” Maybe part of the problem is that the things we’re choosing to relax with aren’t giving us true rest. Maybe we don’t have to always stay late after events, chatting and eating snacks and glancing at our iPhones. Maybe we don’t have to join every small group, Bible study, prayer circle, but instead need to make sure we’re making time for our relationship with the One who created time. Maybe the secret lies in just knowing ourselves, knowing our own limits and our own intentions.

Why Can't Two Gay Brothers Marry?

One of the strongest arguments against consensual adult incest is that incestuous unions could result in children with genetic defects, but since that concern wouldn't apply to same-sex couples, an Irish political leader has argued that gay cousins should be allowed to "marry." And that only begs the next obvious question: Why not gay brothers or gay sisters?

Chuck Colson Was Not a Culture Warrior

Colson’s time in jail was not easy. The air was foul. At night, many fellow convicts struggled to sleep. He watched as inmates fought one another to no purpose, and he struggled to experience spiritual health in this deadened environment. In January 1975, Colson received incredible news: He was released from jail. He returned to everyday life and puzzled at his future. As he prayed, Colson could not shake an emerging, and surprising, conviction. He felt that he should launch an effort to help prisoners. You could say it like this: As soon as he got out of prison, Chuck Colson went right back in.

Accidental Saints: Finding God in All the Wrong People

Ultimately, the book’s description of the church as a brightly colored circus tent for eccentrics distracts readers from the church’s true beauty. The glory of the church is not the sensational sins of her people; the glory of the church is the sacrificial love of her bridegroom. The welcome of the church is not measured by how radical her members are but how radical her redemption in Christ is. And the amazingness of grace is not that it affirms us as we are but that it changes us to be like him.

What Does 'Unwholesome Talk' Really Mean?

What it comes down to is what Paul writes in Romans 14. He says different people, in Christ, have different convictions. In his day, it was about eating meat sacrificed to idols. That’s less of an issue in the modern world. The overall point he makes is we should not quarrel over disputable matters. We have freedom in Christ. That freedom is not an excuse to judge or to try to change the convictions of others. While one person’s faith may allow them to use certain language, another’s will not. It is not our place to judge others. Nor should we behave in a manner that causes them to struggle with their own convictions.

36
Does God Delight in Destroying Sinners?

Another analogy that has helped me with that text and the other passages from Ezekiel 18:32 and Deuteronomy 28:63 is to suggest that God’s infinite complexity is such that he can look at the world through two lenses. He can look through a narrow lens or a wide-angle lens. And when God looks at a painful or wicked event through a narrow lens, he sees the tragedy of sin for what it is in itself, and he is angered or he is grieved at what he sees. “I have no pleasure in the death of anyone” (Ezekiel 18:32) — when God looks at a painful or a wicked event through his narrow lens.

She wrote that she was mad at herself for not being a better negotiator, but said she was concerned about being labeled a “spoiled brat” in the process. She continued, “For some reason, I just can’t picture someone saying that about a man.”

My personal journey of investigation took months to complete, and my study of the evidence became a daily devotional of sorts. As I sifted through the cosmological, biological, mental and moral evidence, I found myself more and more convinced of God’s existence. I examined the universe using the same skills and techniques I would use to investigate any crime scene to see if an external suspect is the most reasonable suspect, and once I was convinced an all-powerful God outside the “room” of the natural universe was the best explanation for the evidence “inside the room,” I returned to the Gospels. While most of my suspects are reluctant to confess, this “suspect” already had. The Gospels describe the God I identified in my investigation of the universe.

We can leisurely toss the phrase around like we are playing frisbee at the park. It would seem that for a subject as important and enduring as love that we might want to have a handle on it and make sure we know what we are saying and then actually mean it.

Back to the Future: Throwback with Ravi Zacharias | RZIM

“Before RZIM was formed, I was a professor at Nyack, the Alliance seminary, and I had just spoken for Billy Graham in Amsterdam in 1983 [see clips in the video below]. I was flying back from there and I thought to myself, ‘Apologetics… How desperately it is needed.’ All of my evangelism, as I heard it then, was geared to the unhappy pagan, as it were. And I thought, ‘What about the happy pagan? What about the person who has questions and feels no need? What about that type of person? They are more lost in a sense, and desperately in need of finding the Savior,'” Ravi says.

White evangelicals are also far more likely (47%) to say that scientists don’t agree on global warming than black Protestants (33%) or weekly worshipers (38%).

Has it become so much a part of me that it has shaped my very being and given me life and guidance?

6 Devotionals You Should Read Next

How do I forgive someone who doesn't think she did anything wrong? Or who doesn't care? Why would I forgive someone who doesn't even think she needs to be forgiven? Because I want my neck and my back muscles to stop hurting. Because I want to sleep, instead of having endless  imaginary conversations. Because I want my mind back. Because I want my life back. So I let her off the hook. I let her off once, to start, and felt pretty good about myself, until someone brought up her name at lunch, and then I got mad all over again, which threw me for a loop. I forgave her. Why am I still so mad at her? I felt like I bought expensive wrinkle cream and woke up more wrinkly than ever. I wanted my money back. Forgiveness is both a decision and a process. It's hard enough to choose to forgive in the first place, and then we have to do it again. And again. And again. And again.
