Mark Wahlberg Asks Pope for Forgiveness for the Movie ‘Ted’

Over the weekend, actor Mark Wahlberg emceed a large event called the Festival of Families, which hosted a very special guest who happened to be visiting the United States—Pope Francis. While onstage with the pope, Wahlberg praised an opera performance by the Keystone State Boychoir, but made a public confession after the song, along with a plead for forgiveness. After a 14-year-old boy’s solo, Wahlberg said, That right there was truly the voice of an angel. But then he whispered in my ear that he liked the movie Ted. I told him that was not appropriate for his age. Holy Father, please forgive me. I’ve always hoped that the Good Lord has a sense of humor when it comes and pertains to many of the movies that I have made. It’s hard to tell if the had any idea what Ted was or if he just wasn't amused at the thought of it.

President Obama: We Must Do Something About Gun Violence

Following the tragic shooting at an Oregon college yesterday that left 10 people dead, President Obama addressed gun violence in America. During the speech (which you can watch below), he said, “America will wrap everyone who’s grieving with our prayers and our love,” but added, “Our thoughts and prayers are not enough. It’s not enough. It does not capture the heartache and grief and anger that we should feel. And it does nothing to prevent this carnage from being inflicted someplace else in America—next week, or a couple of months from now." As he as done following other mass shootings, President Obama said that in order to address on-going gun violence, the nation must implement more effective gun safety laws. When Americans are killed in mine disasters, we work to make mines safer. When Americans are killed in floods and hurricanes, we make communities safer. When roads are unsafe, we fix them to reduce auto fatalities. We have seatbelt laws because we know it saves lives. So the notion that gun violence is somehow different, that our freedom and our Constitution prohibits any modest regulation of how we use a deadly weapon, when there are law-abiding gun owners all across the country who could hunt and protect their families and do everything they do under such regulations doesn’t make sense. He also asked media outlets to publish information on how gun violence in America differs from other developed countries. As we recently showed in this info graph, the United States has far more deaths from guns than most other developed countries.

Justin Bieber: I Just Wanna Honestly Live Like Jesus

I just wanna honestly live like Jesus. Not be Jesus—I could never—I don’t want that to come across weird. He created a pretty awesome template of how to love people and how to be gracious and kind. If you believe it, he died for our sins. Sometimes when I don’t feel like doing something, but I know it’s right, I remember, I’m pretty sure Jesus didn’t feel like going to the cross and dying so that we don’t have to feel what we should have to feel … We have the greatest healer of all and his name is Jesus Christ. And he really heals. This is it. It’s time that we all share our voice. Whatever you believe. Share it. I’m at a point where I’m not going to hold this in.

The Targeting of Christians and How Christians Respond: Reflections on the Oregon Shootings

God is good, this we know; what we do not know is how God can use mass murder to work out his good plan for his people. This is cloudy and difficult for us, as it should be—we should never be comfortable with the ever present reality of evil and its fruit. But we must remember who has ultimate authority. God is always at work in the darkness. His sometimes silence should not be interpreted as apathy or disinterest.

Why Knowing Your Flock Is Critical to Meaningful Preaching

Many preachers carry the burden of God’s Word into the pulpit, and this is a good thing. Receiving the heavy mantle of preaching hot with Christ’s glory—being burdened to proclaim the Lord’s favor in the gospel—is a noble, worthy, wonderful task. But the preacher must also feel the weight of his people in that pulpit. He must ascend to preach having been in the valley with them. His manuscript should be smudged with the tears of his people.

It is almost universally accepted now that Christians, and especially pastors, should try to make a name for themselves, build their own kingdoms, and cultivate cult-like followings — always commending their own books and ministry activities, praising themselves, and getting others to do so as well. In sum, convince your patient that our Enemy didn’t really mean what it seems when he said, “Beware of practicing your righteousness before other people in order to be seen by them” (Matthew 6:1).

The Bait-and-Switch over Same-Sex ‘Marriage’

Kennedy states repeatedly that the function of the Court is to grant “dignity” to same-sex couples. Ultimately, he claims, the decision was informed by “new insight” into the “nature of injustice.”

The Definitive Ranking of Dope Televangelist Suits

OK, so the pope isn’t really a televangelist, but, he does regularly appear on TV and is involved in evangelism, so technically, he qualifies. Plus, his outfit consists of a cape, a scepter and a legendarily boss hat, so there’s no way he can be left off. Plus, the key to any great suit is that it is timeless. Considering these threads date back hundreds of years, it’s safe to say that the look has stood the test of time. ( Image )

The Day Christians were Martyred on American Soil | The Stream

I’ve been educated, by experience, not to pay any attention to a person’s claim to Christ, but to seek out the evidence of their life as to whether Christ has claimed them. One excellent place to look for evidence is in how they handle Matthew 25 in their daily lives: when He was sick or in prison, did they visit Him; when He was homeless, did they invite Him in? Whatever they do to the least of these, they do unto Christ. Ignore Him, and on the Day of Judgment He will ignore you.

3 Ways You Might Be Teaching Your Kids the Prosperity Gospel

The truth is that while parental affection and care should abound, we must also love our children in the truth. And a core truth is that kids are cherished members of our family but not the center. We train them to love and honor others, including their parents. Gospel-centered parenting leads us to call our children out of their natural self-orientation to a sacrificial love for God and others.

‘Don’t Like Me Too Much’: The Power of a Counterintuitive Plea

In his mercy, though, God laid low any notion Paul may have had toward using this experience for his own gain.

Paul declares he won’t boast of the visions, only his weakness. Why? False humility? No. Because boasting in weakness makes much of Christ.

Are Moral Truths a Product of Culture? - Cross Examined - Christian Apologetic Ministry | Frank Turek | Christian Apologetics | Christian Apologetics Speakers

Many atheistic philosophers and thinkers seek to explain moral truth from “inside the room” of the natural universe by offering societies and cultures as the source of morality. According to this view (termed “moral relativism”), morality varies from culture to culture. There are no objective, transcendent, universal moral standards “on all men at all times.” Moral relativists believe cultures and people groups create their moral codes rather than discover them. Moral codes are a social construct designed by the majority to help the group maintain social harmony and increase their ability to survive. But if cultural agreement determines moral truth, several problems emerge:

A Search Committee Is Not a Stealth Committee

Let’s make sure we are extremely courteous and professional in communicating with applicants (when the time comes). While some people may apply for any and every ministry job they can find, more often than not people submit their application with a prayerful mix of excitement and apprehension. It’s a big deal to throw your hat into the ring for a new job. People may naturally start thinking about life in a new place or what they would do in their new job. Some applicants will apply eagerly, knowing they need or want a new job, while others will apply reluctantly and with many reservations. But everyone who applies will be very interested to hear where they are in the process. This means not stringing people along and not letting months go by with no communication. This means we should be as transparent as we can with our estimated timetable. Let’s make a commitment that even if people are disappointed not to get the job, they will feel like our church cared for them well and communicated clearly throughout the search process.

I Don't Have Enough Faith to Be an Atheist (Book)

Norman Geisler and Frank Turek argue, however, that Christianity is not only more reasonable than all other belief systems, but is indeed more rational than unbelief itself. With conviction and clear thinking, Geisler and Turek guide readers through some of the traditional, tested arguments for the existence of a creator God. They move into an examination of the source of morality and the reliability of the New Testament accounts concerning Jesus. The final section of the book deals with a detailed investigation of the claims of Christ. This volume will be an interesting read for those skeptical about Christianity, as well as a helpful resource for Christians seeking to articulate a more sophisticated defense of their faith.

Absolute, Sovereign, Almighty Love

The absolute existence, the sovereign freedom, and the omnipotence of God are the volcanic fullness that explodes in an overflow of love.

WORLD | Don’t despise your sister | Andrée Seu Peterson | Oct. 17, 2015

This requirement to be “fully convinced in his own mind” is no low bar in the debased sense that people nowadays seem to reach “conviction” out of nothing more than emotion, hunch, or digestive issues. It is a stern requirement to investigate the matter thoroughly (Deuteronomy 13:14; 17:4; 19:18) and to arrive at a stance grounded in one’s best assessment of the situation and of Scripture. The author of “the fraud Kim Davis” epithet invokes Joseph and Daniel as examples of “believers who, even though somehow bound to secular, and more often than not, vile and wicked governments, … continued to perform their assigned duties.” But there is no evidence that Joseph and Daniel agreed to violate God’s law in deference to government law—and much evidence that they did not.

Guard your hearts at all costs in the war with porn

Engaging in pornography not only erodes the soul, it also physically impacts the way that your brain is wired. John Piper in a recent article explains some research within the medical community that shows pornography has an addiction effect similar to cocaine and heroine. Cocaine and heroine cause a “high” in two distinct ways. Yet, as the article explains, viewing pornography actually taps into both these causes. A drug addict needs more and more drugs to realize the same sensation. Likewise, pornography re-wires the brain in the same way and, thus, needing more and more pornography to feel the same effects. Therefore, pornography is not only addicting in a spiritualized, sin-craving manner, but your body becomes physically addicted to the “high” and *needs* more material to achieve this high. This addiction is both spiritual and physical. It can all be accessed alone—”anonymously”—in the comfort of your personal computer or smartphone.

An atheist explains the real consequences of adopting an atheistic worldview

I see a lot of atheists these days thinking that they can help themselves to a robust notion of consciousness, to real libertarian free will, to objective moral values and duties, to objective human rights, and to objective meaning in life, without giving credit to theism. It’s not rational to do this. As Frank Turek said on the latest episode of “Cross Examined”, atheists have to sit in God’s lap to slap his face. We should be calling them out on it. I think it’s particularly important not to let atheists utter a word of moral judgment on any topic, since they cannot ground an objective standard that allows them to make statements of morality. Further, I think that they should have every immorality ever committed presented to them, and then they should be told “your worldview does not allow you to condemn this as wrong”. They can’t praise anything as right, either. This is not to say that we should go all presuppositional on them, but if the opportunity arises to point out how they are borrowing from theism in order to attack it, we should do that  in addition  to presenting good scientific and historical evidence.

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?

Consider the following seven reasons motivation for the pursuit of godliness and guides to praying for your own growth.

8 Ways to Stop Biggering and Start Bettering the Church

The little children’s book seems to leave us with the impression that biggering is bad. But I’m not convinced that should be the big lesson.

But teachers like White don’t teach the true Christian gospel. Trump—who claims to be a Christian but says he’s never asked God for forgiveness—desperately needs to hear that spiritual riches are found in repenting and trusting in Christ’s atonement for sin, and that the kingdom of heaven belongs to the poor in spirit.

RS: We talked about how there has been a decline in the quality of music. Take the song that is at the top of the charts this week, lock yourself in a room for five hours, and listen to it over and over again. At the end of five hours, you’ll throw the music against the wall. Now, go in there with Bach’s “Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring,” and listen to it for five hours. At the end you’ll be picking up nuances that you missed for the first four hours.It never gets old or stale. There’s a reason why hymns like “All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name,” “When I Survey the Wondrous Cross,” “Rock of Ages,” and “Holy, Holy, Holy” have survived for so long. Out of the thousands of hymns that have been written, they’ve endured. Why? It’s because of their content and beauty. Our dream is that one or two of the hymns from this project might still be around a hundred years from now.

Country a Mess? Blame the Church.

I’m sorry that I do not have the time or the desire to comment on the blogs that Dr Turek has received thus far. I would like to say that when he stated that the primary blame of our moral decline goes to the church, pastors everywhere should be jumping up and down with joy. Finally someone is bold enough to speak the truth. Although I understand that we all have to be aaccountable to someone, authority always goes up. Pastors were called by God, deacons were called by man. I feel the church has been stripped of its spiritual authorithy and satan is being unchallenged in the areas the church will not go, such as politics. God should be a part of everything that we do! If the sheep are going to vote they should have a spiritual understanding of what they are looking for in a candidate. I recently heard the governor of Mississippi say that we need to bring the republican party together, it did not matter if they were pro life or pro choice. He said we have to stop looking for purity. ” Somebody, an Ibuprofen please”. The church should be built on a foundation of Gods love, mercy and grace, which is Jesus Christ .

Alexander Vilenkin: "All the evidence we have says that the universe had a beginning"

Vilenkin’s final strike is an attack on a third, lesser-known proposal that the cosmos existed eternally in a static state called the cosmic egg. This finally “cracked” to create the big bang, leading to the expanding universe we see today. Late last year Vilenkin and graduate student Audrey Mithani showed that the egg could not have existed forever after all, as quantum instabilities would force it to collapse after a finite amount of time ( arxiv.org/abs/1110.4096 ). If it cracked instead, leading to the big bang, then this must have happened before it collapsed – and therefore also after a finite amount of time.

“Bolt’s portrait of Bavinck and his theology captures the man himself: clear, elegant, biblically saturated, theologically rich, philosophically nuanced, irenic, and aimed at the Christian life. Drawing on a diversity of sources, Bolt not only brings the riches of Bavinck’s mature theology into conversation with current theological concerns, but also applies it to the most practical elements of faith, marriage, family, work, and culture. He ably introduces readers to Bavinck’s vision of the Christian life as part of God’s movement of grace restoring nature and a cosmic redemption aimed at restoring and elevating creation to its intended goal. Most of all, it is a vision of following Jesus out into the world as the Father conforms his children into the image of the Son in the power of the Spirit for the sake of his glorious name.” Derek Rishmawy , Director of College and Young Adult Ministries, Trinity United Presbyterian Church, Santa Ana, California
