Atheists Blast Ted Cruz’s Response When Asked How Important It Is for a President to ‘Fear God’

Chris Stapleton and the triumph of twang | Think Christian

There are plenty of darker moments as well. “Was It 26” is a detailed lament over years lost to the bottle that includes some profound insight into the power of addiction. “The Devil Named Music” contemplates the strange power music has to drive a man away from home. The rowdy “Might as Well Get Stoned” paints substance abuse as a coping technique for someone trying to numb the pain of loneliness and loss. (“Nobody to Blame” accomplishes the same with more humor.) For Stapleton, drink is almost always portrayed as a lie, a sign of weakness, a medication for pain or a sign that all is simply not as it should be. The set closes with “Sometimes I Cry,” a powerful blues number that articulates the only rational response to the fallenness of this strange land we travel through on our way to Glory.

Do Objective Moral Truths Exist in Reality?

Hi my name is Logan and for a little background I watch Dr. Turek’s videos all the time and it has seriously helped me grow and defend Christianity. Anyway, I was talking to some people today at my college trying to spread the teachings of the Bible and I brought up the moral argument as to why are there morals. They responded that morals are defined by societal standards. I asked them so if society allowed for murder then murder would be OK and they stated no but to some people it is OK like psychopaths. Since psychopaths don’t feel guilt for say murdering how could it be written on our heart since say this one exception (the psychopath) didn’t know right from wrong. Another thing they brought up on my statement that God wrote morals on our heart is that morals are simply taught to us by our parents. We aren’t born having morals but are rather taught them. I am just wondering how to refute this. This stumped me and I want to get back to them with a logical argument against there case. Thank you for taking time to read this whoever does and responds!

The history of art is full of biblical themes and Christian influence. Great artists such as Michelangelo and Rembrandt made dramatic contributions to the world of art. Where has the Christian influence in art gone? Is it proper to paint biblical themes? Does the second commandment prohibit images of any kind? Dr. Sproul looks at some of these questions in this message, as he seeks to cultivate a biblical appreciation for the arts and a balanced approach to the idea of art in worship.

You Know You Were a ’90s Church Kid If …

The ’90s was to Christian music what the 2000s was to Creed and/or Nickelback: a golden age of music you would later hate yourself for (still) loving. Friday night rolled around, and instead of doing something lame, you and your friends loaded up into your church’s Ford Econoline, and stopped for some Chick-fil-A to pre-game for the Christian moshing you were about to do. If you don’t know what “Christian moshing” is, imagine a mosh pit made up of Peanuts characters.

4 Questions That Will Deepen Your Understanding of God

Questions alone do not have the power to deepen our relationship with God. However, they are often the way in which God invites us to discover some things about Him or ourselves that he will then use to move us into a deeper relationship with him. A prayerfully curious and humble faith that is willing to live into the answers one day at a time will over time become a deep faith that sustains us even in the most trying of times.

Justin Bieber Invited Journalist to Church While He Was Writing a Story on Him

Bieber told Billboard that before reconnecting with Smith, he felt “Empty. Lost. Like I didn’t know myself.” He said he was consumed with thoughts like, “You’re not good enough. People hate you. You try too hard.” The story still paints a picture of a young guy who's figuring things out, but he seems like he’s going in a different direction than a few years ago. He said, “Enough with the Justin Bieber Show. I want to veer away from the self-centered attitude.”

4 Keys to Discovering Your Calling

We live in a day and age in which everything must feel right in order to be right. Although I agree that for some people, their calling is based on what they love and are good at, I find that this article completely overlooks and doesn't even acknowledge that for others, their calling is something of a burden for which God's grace alone is sufficient. With that being said, what if your calling isn't something that makes you jump out of bed in the morning? What if you're not particularly good at it? When God gave Moses his calling, Moses wasn't jumping up and down with happiness. In fact he tried everything he could think of to get out of it. Not only that, but he wasn't good at public speaking either. Yet God called him. And God provided for Moses the grace that he needed to fulfill that calling. And about Jonas? God gave him a pretty clear calling. Jonas ran the other way and when he did fulfill the calling, it was with a wretched attitude. But God used him to bring to repentance an entire city. And what about the apostles. Most of them were fishermen, far from the public speakers they were called to be to proclaim the Gospel.

50 People in the Bible Confirmed Archaeologically - Biblical Archaeology Society

Moerover, when it comes to Joseph’s death, there was a prophecy that his body would be taken back to Israel. Genesis 50: 24-26 “Joseph said unto his brethren, I die: and God will surely visit you, and bring you out of this land unto the land which he sware to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob. And Joseph took an oath of the children of Israel, saying, God will surely visit you, and ye shall carry up my bones from hence. So Joseph died, being an hundred and ten years old: and they embalmed him, and he was put IN A COFFIN in Egypt.” It wasn’t until Joshua that it is seen that the Israelites take Joseph’s coffin and bury it in a field in, what was then, Shechem. Not very far from today’s Shechem. Joshua 24:32 “And the bones of Joseph, which the children of Israel brought up out of Egypt, buried they in Shechem, in a parcel of ground which Jacob bought of the sons of Hamor the father of Shechem for an hundred pieces of silver: and it became the inheritance of the children of Joseph.”

The Reality of Spiritual Warfare in the Home

One of the sad realities within the local church today centers on the fact that numerous born-again Christians have little or no knowledge of the spiritual warfare that takes place all around us. The Bible is crystal clear in proclaiming that there is a battle raging in the heavenlies as the forces of evil continue to wage war against not only the Creator, but also against all who trust in Christ Jesus as Savior and Lord.

Why Doubt Can Give You Hope

Interesting article. I don't quite get all of it though. Strobel makes doubt and disbelief sound like very different things, but looking up dictionary definitions of "doubt" and "disbelief" it seems the two words are synonymous or at the very least that doubt is a spectrum of which disbelief is a part of. It seems to me that there is not too much of a difference between "strongly doubting" something (e.g. a Christian tenet) and "disbelieving" it. Does Strobel see doubt as a spectrum of how uncertain someone is? It seems like Strobel logically separates the concepts of doubting and disbelieving in a black-and-white manner. This seems inconsistent and contrary to how doubt actually works. He wholeheartedly affirms doubt yet condemns disbelief strongly. At what point does doubt become disbelief and worthy of condemnation? If Strobel affirms that doubting Christian tenets isn't bad or wrong, I assume he would agree that there are legitimate intellectual reasons that people doubt said tenets. At what point do legitimate intellectual reasons that people doubt Christian tenets go too far and become disbelief? It seems that setting a specific point is completely arbitrary.

Mining for God (A Search for Ancient Truth in a Modern World)

America has long been called a Christian nation. In fact, over 70% of adults in America identify themselves as Christian. Yet when filmmaker Brandon McGuire heads to the streets to ask a few clarifying questions about how Christianity is defined within our culture, he is shocked by the answers he finds.


“Voddie Baucham’s expository approach to apologetics reminds us of the power of God’s Word for responding to objections to the Christian faith. This book hits all the right notes and guides the reader to think biblically, confessionally and theologically when engaging with those who reject Christianity. Baucham’s book will encourage the church to engage unbelief from the perspective of Scripture, rather than from a lesser perspective.” K. Scott Oliphint , Professor of Apologetics and Systematic Theology, Westminster Theological Seminary; author,  Covenantal Apologetics

We Can Absolutely Turn the Tide

In the aftermath of the Houston defeat, there were also small signs of a breach between gay activism and transgender activism, as indicated by a petition launched on by "a group of gay/bisexual men and women who have come to the conclusion that the transgender community needs to be disassociated from the larger LGB community; in essence, we ask that organizations such as the Human Rights Campaign, GLAAD, Lambda Legal and media outlets such as The Advocate, Out and Huff Post Gay Voices stop representing the transgender community as we feel their ideology is not only completely different from that promoted by the LGB community (LGB is about sexual orientation, trans is about gender identity), but is ultimately regressive and actually hostile to the goals of women and gay men."

Nine Forceful Warnings to Confront Your Friend’s Adultery

Podcast listener Nicole writes in to ask, “Pastor John, how do I confront a dear friend, who is in Christ, when I see her getting involved with a married man? I have already confronted her once before, telling her to flee from adultery. I’m afraid she is in deeper now than before. What Scripture can I be pointed towards to prepare for this hard conversation with her?”

It’s OK When Your Faith Evolves

I would love for people to know they don’t need to be afraid and they are really, deeply loved. That, to me, is the foundation of the book: You don’t need to be afraid. Jesus is just as present in the liminal spaces and in the wandering and in the questions and in your doubts. The Spirit will meet you there just as much as the Spirit met you in your days of certainty and know-it-all-ness. You are so incredibly and deeply and profoundly loved by God, and there is safety in that. You cannot outrun the grace of God, and there is space in there for you.

Blaise Pascal, the famous French philosopher and mathematician, noted that human beings are creatures of profound paradox.

How often do celebrities who have done great good through philanthropy get caught up in scandals?

Team Jeb Bush Prepares to Hand Ted Cruz the Republican Nomination - Erick on the Radio

Mike Murphy has built a machine to get Jeb Bush elected and cannot get it done. More and more Republican voters have decided they will never, ever support Jeb Bush. The Bush Super PAC ads have done nothing to boost Bush’s popularity. As revenge for their “boy” becoming his own man, Mike Murphy intends to destroy Marco Rubio. If Bush can’t get the nomination, they will make sure Marco Rubio can’t either.

I Went to Change the World ... and Failed

I think one of the hardest things is understanding why God would allow us to go to these amazing places and fail, or why He would allow us to have these amazing ministry experiences and then leave the front lines and go back to "mediocrity". I have learned that it's all a faith journey--we want to trust God in the missions field because it's exciting, maybe even romantic, but can we trust Him when we have a 9-5 that we don't particularly like? Can we still use our gifts for His glory when we hate our job?

Is Germany’s Refugee Crisis a Muslim Mission Field?

One prominent denomination has claimed in a position paper that trying to evangelize refugees is unchristian, reports Religion News Service. “A strategic mission to Islam or meeting Muslims to convert them threatens social peace and contradicts the spirit and mandate of Jesus Christ and is therefore to be firmly rejected,” said the Evangelical Church of the Rhineland in a paper entitled “Pilgrim Fellowship and Witness in Dialogue with Muslims, according to RNS.

How Not to Talk About Politics

Getting mad over political differences lets people know you care more about being right than being a good friend. The best way to do this is to take someone’s individual position on a political issue—that in no way affects your day-to-day life—extremely personally. It’s even better if every time someone criticizes a candidate you plan on possibly voting for, you view it as criticism against yourself. It’s both irrational and ineffective: a perfect storm of friendship-ruining!

3 Excuses We Use When We Mess Up

Most of us get shy and shameful when we hear the word “self-control,” mainly because most of us aren't good at it. Self-control is discipline’s ugly big brother that is almost impossible to get right, and nearly as difficult to talk about. Every since I was eight years old, the very term has made me fidget in my chair. It’s uncomfortable for me because I’m bad at eating healthy and I really like buying shoes.

3 ways to pray for Governor-elect Matt Bevin

This is particularly relevant in Kentucky for three reasons. First, for years, gambling interests have tried to expand predatory casino gaming, a practice that harms the poor, erodes communities, and corrupts government. Pray that Governor-elect Bevin will resist the temptation to resolve messy budget shortfalls through short-term gaming revenues. Second, despite Kentucky being an overwhelmingly pro-life state, government officials have served as the greatest obstacle to seeing commonsense reforms enacted concerning abortion. Thankfully, these voices are increasingly on the margins and Governor-elect Bevin has been a stalwart, vocal advocate for human dignity. Pray that Governor-elect Bevin will execute justice on behalf of the unborn and speak up in defense of those who cannot speak for themselves (Prov. 24:11). Third, Kentucky has gained national attention because of religious liberty on several occasions. From Governor Beshear’s 2013 veto of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act being overridden, thankfully, to the Kim Davis controversy, recent action on the part of government officials has shown how vulnerable religious liberty really is in Kentucky.

In Defense of Miracles - Christian Research Institute

Rumors of deception have surrounded claims of Jesus’ resurrection ever since the soldiers appointed to guard his tomb made their report to the Jewish authorities. But no one has led the philosophic charge against miracles quite as influentially as David Hume with his 1748 essay “Of Miracles.” Refined, revised, restated, his arguments still affect philosophic discussions of miracles today. During the twentieth century, strong arguments have been raised by Antony Flew, now professor emeritus at Keele University in England. Flew has contributed a fresh statement of his objections to the idea of God’s acting in history just for this volume, which also includes Hume’s classic critique as a part of the case against miracles.

Michele Bachmann: Jesus Is Coming Soon; 'We're Seeing Fulfillment of Scripture'

"We recognize the shortness of the hour, and that's why we as a remnant want to be faithful in these days and do what it is that the Holy Spirit is speaking to each one of us, to be faithful in the Kingdom and to help bring in as many as we can — even among the Jews — share Jesus Christ with everyone that we possibly can because, again, He's coming soon," Bachmann said on FRC's "Washington Watch"  radio show broadcast from Jerusalem last week, according to JTA News Agency .

Why ‘Pastor-Scholar’ Is a False Dichotomy

The ongoing dialogue about pastor-scholar or pastor-theologian, then, strikes me as both personal and perplexing. The false dichotomy some lament as existing between the two worlds—between the life of the mind and the life of the cloth—befuddles me. At its most basic level “theology” means little more than a “word about God,” an ongoing study into the mind and the mystery of our Creator. Hence all Christians are to be theologians, not just scholars. Certainly any congregation hopes for and deserves a pastor who has thought deeply about these matters as he leads them through Scripture and through life.

Ben Carson Refused DNA Test for Paternity Suit Because He Only Slept With Candy

"Well, you know, all that is public knowledge, so how are they going to pursue that on the basis of public knowledge? But they were going to do it, I had to get my attorney involved, and it escalated. And finally, they said 'Well, we can resolve all of this if you send us some of your blood, and we can do DNA testing. And I said 'Wait a minute, you people, as incompetent as you are, want me to send you a specimen of my blood?'" explained Carson. "'The next thing I know, it will be in a murder scene, and I'll be in prison for the rest of my life,' I said 'There's no way you're getting my blood.'"

Church Attendance Plunges after Nepal Becomes a Secular State

What about the Similarity Between Human and Chimp DNA?

Evolutionists have suggested that there are “plagiarized mistakes” between the human and chimpanzee genome and that these are best explained by a common ancestor. A teacher who found identical errors on two students’ papers would be rightly inclined to believe that the students cheated. The best explanation for two papers with an identical error is that they are both from the same original source. In the same way, some evolutionists have suggested that differences or deactivated genes shared by humans and chimps are best explained by common ancestry. They claim that the only alternative is a Creator who put the same error in two different organisms—a claim they would call incredible.

Christian Groups to Obama: Back Off Abortion, Gender Transition and Gay Marriage

The National Association of Evangelicals, Southern Baptist Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission, Family Research Council, World Vision and the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops and other religious groups jointly submitted comments last week expressing concern that religious groups could be required to engage in actions contrary to their beliefs about abortion, gender identity or gay marriage.
