Ten of the Top Scientific Facts in the Bible MP4

*For a limited time (through January 1, 2016), when you download “Ten of the Top Scientific Facts in the Bible” you will also get a free PDF eBook of Ray’s bestselling “Scientific Facts in the Bible.” If it’s true that the Bible contains scientific facts that were written thousands of years before man discovered them, the implications are staggering. These facts would be evidence that the Bible is the word of God, and its promise of Heaven and threat of Hell are therefore not to be mocked or ignored. “Ten of the Top Scientific Facts in the Bible” is a half-hour of awe-inspiring and faith-building video, filled with ancient biblical truths—the earth’s free float in space, the dinosaur and why it disappeared, laws of quarantine, the earth being round, and much more. This is a powerful resource to encourage Christians, and to challenge the most hardened skeptic to take the claims of the gospel seriously. “Excellent! This video will captivate you.” -Jeff Seto , Aerospace Engineer & author.

This Video of a Working Jetpack Shows That the Future Is Now

Sure, we may not have hoverboards, flying cars or robot assistants, but in 2015, we’ve finally got personal jetpacks. The company JetPack Aviation has released this new product demo video showing a test flight of their “JB-9” personal jetpack, and though it’s still a little underwhelming (it’s not exactly the Rocketeer), the jetpack still clearly a step in the right direction. The future is now!

Here’s a New ‘Star Wars’ Teaser

A new, minute-long ad for Star Wars: The Force Awakens has been released, and, as with everything related to the franchise, has already taken over a good chunk of the Internet. A lot of the footage from the spot is stuff we’ve seen before in the trailers, but if you are the type of Star Wars fan that likes dissecting each frame for glimpses at light sabers and tiny plot clues, then feel free to spend your morning watching this over and over again.

We Cannot Look the Other Way

We must stop looking the other way when it comes to abortion. Yes, it’s uncomfortable. Yes, it’s awkward. Yes, people will get mad at us. But until we start talking about abortion and what it is and who it affects, we will never see change.

2 Getting the Gospel Right Is Fundamental

send to a friend #9  Posted by Dennis W.  |  Monday, November 16, 2015 at 12:56 PM Laura, You probably already know this but just incase you haven't heard or read about this, I heard a sermon/teaching by Pastor John from 1 Peter. I have, for what ever reason, never really heard about the covenant between God and those who would believe. It strengthened me...it renewed my joy! To know that upon my heeding Jesus's command to repent, believe, and obey...I am now a child of God and when we believe we make a covenant with God. We became a part of this covenant. We promise God that we will obey His word as our part and His part is what drops me to my knees. His part is what humiliates me, crushing my pride, yet the joy that wells up can hardly be contained, because once again God shows me that none of me, contributes anything, to anything good that may be about me.

Renewing Your Mind | A Living Hope | November 16, 2015

Our hopes and dreams for things in this world vary in importance, but no matter how great the hope is, it is still of this world. The Bible speaks of the Christian's hope in a category completely different from its concept in this world. In this message, Dr. Sproul teaches us the radical difference between the hope of this world and that which we all possess if we are in Christ.

3 People You Should Remove From Your Life

It takes courage to set up healthy boundaries in relationships and give yourself needed distance from certain friends. And you always want to do it gently and carefully. But to get where you really want to go, you might need to remove some people from your life. Be gracious, but choose to love them from a distance.

If they think that somehow their advisers are better than the chairman of my Joint Chiefs of Staff, and the folks who are actually on the ground, I want to meet them.”

Sweden Opened Its Doors To Muslim Immigration, Today It’s The Rape Capital Of The West. Japan Didn’t.

But under sharia, this rape culture also impacts upon Swedish women as they are “infidels” and, as such, are — according to Allah’s teachings — sanctioned targets for rape by Muslim men. Such an Islamic belief system has born witness to a drastic increase in rapes in Sweden — more than a thousand fold — since first opening its doors to Muslim immigration.

Exegesis Has Consequences

Ideas have consequences. Since the dawn of Western philosophy, we have witnessed the good, the bad, and the ugly of this axiom. From the influence of John Locke upon the founders of America, to the disastrous results of the influence of Karl Marx in Communist Russia and Friedrich Nietzsche in Hitler’s Germany, it can hardly be argued that ideas don’t have consequences. Yet, not only do ideas have consequences, but so too does exegesis.

What Do You Tell Your Kids About ISIS?

Thanks for sharing your parenting perspective. I do disagree, though, that “They don’t love God or want to honor him.” At least at an ideological level, everything ISIS does is supposed to be for the glory and honor of Allah. ISIS is not a secular group bent on doing evil. They are a highly religious group, bent on purging the world of sin as defined in their own twisted view of Islam. That’s completely different than a group that’s simply out on a political agenda. I think that, with kids old enough to understand, they need to be taught that a perverted view of theology IS driving this group. They are, in some ways, much more passionately “acting on” their faith than many Christians are. We tell our children that, to help explain why it absolutely does matter WHAT you believe, not just that you believe it with fervor.

3 Ways to Pray for Our Enemies

Another, less frequent, reason we don’t pray for their conversion is because we fear they may actually repent. Like Jonah in Nineveh, we want our enemies to receive their just desserts, not mercy and forgiveness. Consider all of the Christians who dutifully prayed for the Nazis. How would they have felt if they discovered that Hitler, in the moments prior to his death, had truly repented of his sins and was forgiven by God? Many of those Christians would have felt cheated, as if it was unfair of God to forgive such horrific crimes. They would likely want to complain, as Jonah did when God spared the Ninevites, “I knew that you are a gracious and compassionate God, slow to anger and abounding in love, a God who relents from sending calamity” (Jonah 4:2)?

Is Allah the Worst Communicator Ever? (David Wood)

http://www.answeringmuslims.com In the Qur'an, Allah claims to be perfectly clear in his commands (see 6:114; 11:1; 12:1; 15:1; 16:89; 22:72; 24:1, 34, 46; 26:2; 27:1; 28:2; 36:69; 41:3; 57:9; 65:11; etc.). Yet when critics quote the Qur'an, many Muslims insist that Allah means something very different from what he says. This should cause us to wonder: Is Allah's speech clear, or is it horribly unclear? Could Allah be the the worst communicator ever? In this video, David Wood discusses the problem.

The Scandal of Silence

Survivors need the expertise of knowledgeable therapists as well as the compassion and safety of everyday people. But if churches really want to handle cases of sexual abuse well, survivors also desperately need pastors and clergy to share their pain and educate congregants about the prevalence of sexual trauma in the world today. Church leaders need to stand by the oppressed sister or child use their resources—practical, financial and spiritual—to fight for victims. After all, Jesus was our advocate before He was anything else.

Fixing the Most Watered-Down Church Word

Missional living became seen as the next big thing, and quickly. However, the problem with buzzwords is that they come and go, and often, the idea they represent comes and goes with them. It seems that in the past year or so, the same people working the word “missional” into every sentence suddenly stopped talking about it. The frequency of the term slipped from buzzword territory into near non-existence. It’s time we reclaimed the idea of living missionally without using it just as a watered-down church term.

What Can Be Done About ISIS?

So. No. ISIS isn't trying to weed out Christianity. That is a byproduct of their stated goal, not the end goal itself. And, may I also ask, how do we expect Muslims to stand with us when we refuse to acknowledge their suffering at the hands of ISIS too? When we turn an issue like this into an "us" vs. "them" battle (us being Christians, them being ISIS), we play into the hands of the terrorists because we divide ourselves from others rather than unifying in peace. May all of those suffering at the hands of ISIS - be they Christian, Muslim, Yazidi, or anything else - be protected by the hand of God, and may we wage peace on their behalf.

The Most Important Questions Millennials Aren’t Asking

When we ask these questions and seek the truth, we are enabled to move from living a life by default to intentional living. Life by default is living a life without asking any questions and accepting the results of whatever happens. Intentional living is asking tough questions, seeking truth and making the best decisions based on the answers we have received that help us align with the plans and directions we believe God has called us to pursue. The people with the fullest hearts and most rewarding lives have taken the time to ask the right questions.

Thirteen Practical Steps to Kill Sin

This does not mean we should become complacent about sin. It means we must fight it daily. We are commanded to constantly kill the sin that remains in our lives: “if you live according to the flesh you will die, but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live. . . . Put to death therefore what is earthly in you” (Romans 8:13; Colossians 3:5). This is not optional. This is mortal combat: Sin dies or we die. Not that we ever become perfect in this age, but we go on killing sins as they attack us from day to day. We do not settle in with sin. We fight and we kill.

Six Questions to Ask When Studying the Bible in a Group

It might be the guy who dominates the conversation, barely allowing anyone else to share something or ask a question. Or the girl whose emotional articulation of what it means to her has little or nothing to do with the actual passage at hand. Or it could be the person who always asks the peripheral and irrelevant question that sidetracks the whole discussion for way too long. Or it might be the three or four quiet ones who never say more than two or three words, even when you call on them.

Catalyst Podcast by Andy Stanley // Jennie Allen on iTunes

These are professional-quality outstanding interviews with fascinating guests. Each guest - even some who are not Christian but are insightful business people - give outstanding insights for church leaders. Having listened to at least 10 of the 20 podcasts, I highly recommend them. Those who lead the interviews do a good job of introducing the guests and giving us two minutes of other things we should be aware of. Though aimed at young leaders, any church leader would benefit. This is a true gift to the church. Well done, Catalyst.

Horror’s Most Influential Filmmaker Is a Committed Christian

But perhaps even bolder than the decision to adapt such a dark character from the comic universe was the studio’s choice for Derrickson to direct. Not only is Derrickson currently one of the most influential directors in the horror genre, he’s also a devout Christian who isn’t afraid to incorporate deeper spiritual messages into his films. His resume includes dark, supernatural films including Sinister, The Exorcism of Emily Rose, Hellraiser: Inferno and 2014’s demonic detective thriller Deliver Us From Evil .

Why Is God Still Absent from Downton Abbey?

Last year he also revealed that Downton Abbey's history is, in his conceit, similar to that of Highclere Castle, the house in which the show is filmed. This would mean that Downton was a convent or monastery before King Henry VIII appropriated it from the Catholic Church and either sold it or gave it to the Crawleys during the Reformation—or else the king let it pass to another family into which the Crawleys later married.

Articulating the Glorious Cross to an Atonement-Rejecting Culture

Welcome to a new week on the podcast. We start the week with an email from podcast listener Jessica from Davis, California, and it could not be more important. “Pastor John, as I talk with millennials about Christ and the gospel, I’ve repeatedly had people say that they don’t believe that someone else paying the punishment for another (substitutionary atonement) is just. I too have an internal push back against this, but have come to know that substitutionary atonement has roots in the mosaic sacrificial system. Our generation, however, at least in California, is biblically illiterate and doesn’t have this framework. How would you explain the justice of substitutionary atonement to this generation?”

Should We Pray for the Defeat of ISIS, or Their Conversion?

A pastor friend told me last week that he had church members enraged with him when he suggested from the pulpit that we ought to pray for the salvation of Islamic State terrorists. The people in his church told him that he ought to be calling for justice against them, given their brutal murder of Christians, not for mercy.

7 States Now Say They Will Refuse Refugees From Syria

When I hear folks say that, well, maybe we should just admit the Christians, but not the Muslims, when I hear political leaders suggesting that there would be a religious test for which person who’s fleeing from a war-torn country is admitted, when some of those folks themselves come from families who benefited from protection when they were fleeing political persecution, that’s shameful. That’s not American. That’s not who we are. we don’t have religious tests to our compassion.

When I Am Anxious

When I am anxious about being sick, I battle unbelief with the promise, “Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all” (Psalm 34:19). And I take the promise with trembling, “knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us” (Romans 5:3–5).

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.

A Call for Christian Extremists

Jesus himself spoke of the primacy of good works: “Let your light shine before others,” he said, “so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven” (Matthew 5:16). His friend Peter said it as well: “Keep your conduct among the Gentiles [those who do not adhere to Christian teaching] honorable, so that when they speak against you as evildoers, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day of visitation” (1 Peter 2:12). The Apostle Paul would also echo the theme: “For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them” (Ephesians 2:10). The theme pervades and dominates the New Testament. Does it pervade and dominate your life?

41 Evil, Suffering and the Evidence for God - www.ThePoachedEgg.net/mobile

Still, some skeptics say prayer is nothing but an empty act of desperation or sentimentality. Like wishing upon a star. In fact, The Richard Dawkins Foundation for Reason and Science posted a “Pray for Paris” graphic on Facebook altered to read, in part, “Don’t Pray for Paris…” Why? Because on the naturalistic worldview, there is no deity who hears a thing people are praying. After all, how could God exist when stuff like this happens?

Pastors in Paris: Opposing Terror with Love

Our church held its normal services. We felt a real spirit of unity yesterday. We tried to work through a Christian response to the attacks, and prayed for the city and each other. The #prayforparis reaction has been a real encouragement to us because there were as many tweets in 10 hours as for #jesuisCharlie earlier in the year over a period of five days. Paris needs your prayers—especially as the very secular French media hardly mentioned the pray for Paris hashtag.

Evil, Suffering and the Evidence for God - Apologetics Guy

On November 13, 2015, coordinated terrorist attacks rocked Paris, France: A shooting rampage, explosions, and a mass hostage-taking that left over 100 people dead and over 300 more badly injured; people who went out to see a band, a soccer game, grab a bite to eat or just enjoy the evening. The Islamic State claimed responsibility and the media called it the deadliest attack in France since World War II.

Atheism and Evil in the Name of God - Apologetics Guy

I recently saw an animated short created by an atheist on YouTube. In this video, a bunch of theists were trying to tell an atheist about God. But then the theists began to threaten each other with weapons and argue over whose religion was right! Not surprisingly, the atheist character came out as the level-headed one as he tried to calm everyone down and stop the violence. Although this cartoon caricatured religious people, it did reveal a bit about how some skeptics see religiously-motivated violence and why they so quickly reject a belief in God.

Memorize the Mind of God

But maybe the breakthrough could come with some simple change in perspective. What if Scripture memory really was about today? At least for a minute, forget decades from now; throw aside the litany of daily reviews of previously memorized texts; abandon the mentality of building the store and stocking the pile, at least as the driving motivation. Instead, focus on the present. Scripture memory, at its best, is about feeding your soul today and mapping your life and mind onto the very life and mind of God.

AMC Announces That ‘Better Call Saul’ Will Return on Feb. 15

It’s official. Better Call Saul is coming back in February. Though Season 1 of the Breaking Bad prequel drew critical acclaim, and it was clear that AMC would be bringing back the series for another season, there was no official word on a release date. In a statement to TVLine , show runner Peter Gould explained, “Jimmy McGill’s journey takes surprising, left-handed turns in Season 2. He goes to places we’d never, ever expected. As for Mike Ehrmantraut, he’s pulled deeper into a world he was sure he’d left forever. We can’t wait to share the next chapter of Better Call Saul with the fans who have embraced the show.” We can’t wait either.
