Well, This ‘Cars 3’ Trailer Sure Took a Dark Turn

A few months back, Disney-Pixar head John Lasseter told fans that the third installment of the Cars franchise would be a “very emotional story,” but man, this trailer is dark for a kid’s movie about talking race cars. The almost colorless clip features the sound of a beating heart, a violent car crash and the jarring warning that “From this moment, everything will change.” Sounds like fun! The movie—which we guess now fits in the category of drama—drops next summer.

Apple's 'Frankie's Holiday' Ad Will Make You Feel All the Feels

In the spirit of emotional and sentimental ad campaigns, Apple just released an ad called "Frankie's Holiday." Frankie is the Frankenstein monster and he lives in an isolated outskirt of a town. One night during the holiday season, he stumbles out to the town square and starts singing "(There's No Place Like) Home For The Holidays" and everyone stares at him in fear. That is, until a little girl starts singing along with him. The touching two minutes end with "Open your heart to everyone" across the screen, an obvious nod to the refugee crisis.

This remarkable passage has at its center an indictment of thanklessness. They did not honor Him as God or give thanks . Paul wants us to understand that the refusal to honor God and give thanks is a raw form of the primal sin. Theologians have long debated the foundational sin — and answers have ranged from lust to pride. Nevertheless, it would seem that being unthankful, refusing to recognize God as the source of all good things, is very close to the essence of the primal sin. What explains the rebellion of Adam and Eve in the Garden? A lack of proper thankfulness was at the core of their sin. God gave them unspeakable riches and abundance, but forbade them the fruit of one tree. A proper thankfulness would have led our first parents to avoid that fruit at all costs, and to obey the Lord’s command. Taken further, this first sin was also a lack of thankfulness in that the decision to eat the forbidden fruit indicated a lack of thankfulness that took the form of an assertion that we creatures — not the Creator — know what is best for us and intend the best for us.

5 Thankful for What? Thankful to Whom?

That’s what drove the Pilgrims to hold the first Thanksgiving. Gratefulness. For survival. But some historians suggest that first gathering was nothing more than a Harvest Feast, a common occurrence from Europe that the Pilgrims were mere imitating. Therefore, they say, it really wasn’t a religious gathering at all but a secular one.

What Is Thanksgiving Day?

Thanksgiving is an American holiday that stretches all the way back to a time long before America became a nation. The Pilgrims landed in 1620. They faced brutal conditions and were woefully unprepared. Roughly half of them died in that first year. Then they had a successful harvest of corn. In November of 1621 they decided to celebrate a feast of thanksgiving.

8 Squanto and the Miracle of Thanksgiving - Metaxas, Eric &

Experience the true story from American history about the spiritual roots and historical beginnings of Thanksgiving. This entertaining and historical story shows that the actual hero of Thanksgiving was neither white nor Indian but God. In 1608, English traders came to Massachusetts and captured a twelve-year-old Indian, Squanto, and sold him into slavery. He was raised by Christians and taught faith in God. Ten years later he was sent home to America. Upon arrival, he learned an epidemic had wiped out his entire village. But God had plans for Squanto. God delivered a Thanksgiving miracle: an English-speaking Indian living in the exact place where the Pilgrims landed in a strange new world.

Lord, Break My Heart

But such remembering is perhaps most beautifully portrayed in Acts 2:44–45, where “all who believed were together and had all things in common [and] were selling their possessions and belongings and distributing the proceeds to all, as any had need.” This is a sign and wonder: to be so moved, so distressed, by another’s distress, that one gives his wealth away to provide for the other’s need. But again we remember what Jesus said, in fact, when someone would not give his wealth to the poor, “With man it is impossible, but not with God. For all things are possible with God” (Mark 10:27).

Thanksgiving

The deepest roots of Christian thanksgiving go back to the Old World, way back before the Pilgrims, to a story as old as creation, with a two-millennia-old climax. It’s a story that keeps going right on into the present and gives meaning to our little lives, even when we’re a half a globe removed from history’s ground zero at a place called Golgotha.

Millions Will Eat, But Miss the Point

Millions of Americans will sit down this week before a splendid dinner God created, but will not thank him for it. Instead, many of us will overeat, showing our devotion to some food goddess, and then collapse into a soft chair to worship the great football gods. The guy who gets the winning touchdown will almost certainly receive more praise (and definitely more headlines) than the God who made the whole day possible. The delicious turkey will be praised more than the one who created every living thing.

Book Review: Creating Life In The Lab

Introduction Creating Life In The Lab: How New Discoveries in Synthetic Biology Make A Case For The Creator is Dr. Fazale Rana's latest contribution to Christian apologetic literature. The goal of the book is to provide a case for God's existence from the controversial efforts of scientists to "play God" by creating life. He has written the book with the backdrop of Franenstein to provide some cultural connection. The book has thirteen chapters plus an appendix that includes a short refresher on biochemistry. The book, though not officially, is divided into two parts: the first examining the quest to create artificial life and the second investigates scientists research behind the origin of life. Chapter 1- Waking Up in Frankenstein's Dream Dr. Rana begins his book by giving a little of his own history- what made him want to study biochemistry and what brought him to the point he is at now. He then begins setting the stage for the rest of the book. He explains what has happened regarding origin-of-life research. He starts at the Miller-Urey experiment and brings the reader to the present.

The One Who Gave Thanks

Then one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, praising god with a loud voice; and he fell on his face at Jesus’ feet, giving him thanks. Now he was a Samaritan. Then Jesus answered, “Were not ten cleansed? Where are the nine?” (Luke 17:15-17)

Why Thanksgiving Will Always Be A Uniquely Christian Holiday (Podcast) | Cold Case Christianity

Is it possible to thank the impersonal forces of physics that govern the universe? J. Warner explores several ways atheists have tried to propose secular versions of this historically Christian holiday. Can they successfully remove God from the celebration?

A race of tiny beings known as lightlings are a picture of humanity as they pass through all the stages of the biblical drama—creation, fall, and redemption. In the end, children will understand why some people fear light more than darkness, but why they need never fear darkness again.

A Prelude to Joy: A Thanksgiving Meditation | RZIM

It is a tragic situation when a gift has been given out of love, but the receiver does not know who gave it, or worst yet, does not care. In the case of a little girl at a birthday party, the search for the giver is easy. However, there are those in this world with a sense of thanksgiving without knowing whom to be thankful to. Millions of people this week will be thanks-givers, without slowing to ponder the identity of the Thanks-Receiver. We are temporarily thankful for the turkey on Thursday that will fuel our shopping sprees on Friday. We will buy more things at the suggestion of a consumer culture that tells us we actually do not have enough. We have thus commercialized the antithesis of the meaning of the holiday and distracted ourselves from asking the big questions of life that derive from being thankful. I am not suggesting that we should not shop. What I am saying is that we should keep in mind the old doxology “Praise God from whom all blessings flow” and delight not only in the gifts we have been given, but also in the knowledge that the Giver has made Himself known. Take a moment to be still and thank God.

Asking for Proof Undermines Atheism

The Christian Apologist/Pastor Jeff Durbin, in the video below, does an excellent job of showing an atheist that a request for proof, actually undermines atheism. It’s a point which we (Christians) must be aware of when we are confronted with the challenge to prove Christianity to those we evangelize. Especially those who deny the existence of God.

I Wasn't Allowed to Read Harry Potter. Here's Why I'm a Fan Now

I’ve seen the movie, and while I wasn’t quite enamored with it, I still profess to be a fan of the other movies and books based around the wizarding world. But like many other Christians my age, I wasn’t allowed to read any of the books growing up. Some might not remember this, but Harry Potter was a bit of a taboo subject in many Christian circles in the late 1990s and early 2000s. In my own home, this was a complicated topic.

3 Good Reasons to Question What You Believe

Introduction: Many people like to ask questions, and not just basic questions that get us through day-to-day life, but questions that go beyond our basic routines. Questions that examine who we are, why we are here, from where have we come. Questions that are on all our minds, but many fear to ask. Some are afraid they may discover something they do not like; some are afraid they may offend another's answers to the same questions; some do not believe the questions can be answered with any level of confidence; and some do not believe that such questions are even legitimate to ask. Unfortunately, those fears often prevent people from asking the deeper questions, and they either struggle quietly with them or ignore them altogether.

Should Christians Accept Secular Critique?

As humans we tend to prefer to listen to those who agree with us and avoid the discomfort of having our views challenged.We find this in all sorts of people who hold all sorts of different views- be they religious, philosophical, political, or whatever. As a child my most common exposure to this attitude was from those in the church. I remember one person pointing to scripture to affirm such an attitude:

Is 'This Is Us' the Best Show of the Year?

I feel like the show is more Hollywood drama and less relatable drama. What I mean there is that Parenthood told stories that seemed real. This Is Us feels more glamorous and plastic.

I like the show, but I haven't been able to really become attached like I did Parenthood.

Have you ever wondered about the doctrine of the Trinity? How could the God of the Bible be one God, but at the same time three Persons—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit?

Paul Says to 'Renew Your Minds.' Here's How to Actually Do It

Self-talk is simply the practice of bringing one’s negative patterns to attention and then reframing them into a concrete positive pattern that embodies the truth of who they are. In order to do this there is a very simple formula that one could begin to practice that I learned from Hargrave. In his Restoration Therapy model, he lays out four simple steps to help people create change, and it is a great example of self-talk, which is the practice of speaking truth into your life.

Thanksgiving Gets the Hallmark Treatment

But don’t expect a lot of theological reflection in Kirkpatrick’s treatment of Americans’ religious beliefs. She repeatedly observes that Americans overwhelmingly think of Thanksgiving as having a religious dimension, but she seems uninterested in the specifics, and the evidence for her conclusion seems entirely anecdotal. (The people she knows say a prayer before Thanksgiving dinner.) She’s probably correct that most Americans still impute a measure of religious significance to the holiday, although where religion ranks with Thanksgiving’s other dimensions—football or Black Friday preparations, for example—is a question she avoids. She surely overstates the case in insisting that “God remains at the center” of the holiday, citing the ambiguous allusions to God that still crop up in formulaic presidential Thanksgiving proclamations that almost no one reads.

43
Even Christians Can’t Choose Their Own Facts

When arguing apologetics, a Christian’s responsibility isn’t to “win.” You wouldn’t know that from scanning through forums and Facebook debates, but it’s true. In fact, to enter into an apologetics discussion or an otherwise spiritual discussion with the intention of “winning,” can be detrimental, because it tempts us to skew the facts in order to prove that we’re right. But winning an argument with dishonest facts doesn’t make us right; far from it.

What Are “Kinds” in Genesis?

The first thing that needs to be addressed is: “What is a kind?” Often, people are confused into thinking that a “species” is a “kind.” But this isn’t necessarily so. A species is a man-made term used in the modern classification system. And frankly, the word species is difficult to define, whether one is a creationist or not! There is more on this word and its definition and relationship to “kinds” later in this chapter. The Bible uses the term “kind.” The Bible’s first use of this word (Hebrew: min ) is found in Genesis 1 when God creates plants and animals “according to their kinds.” It is used again in Genesis 6 and 8 when God instructs Noah to take two of every kind of land-dwelling, air-breathing animal onto the ark and also in God’s command for the animals to reproduce after the Flood. A plain reading of the text infers that plants and animals were created to reproduce within the boundaries of their kind. Evidence to support this concept is clearly seen (or rather not seen) in our world today, as there are no reports of dats (dog + cat) or hows (horse + cow)! So a good rule of thumb is that if two things can breed together, then they are of the same created kind.

46
A Prayer for the Worried Mom’s Heart

And as we remember, we need to turn to God in prayer. Hebrews says that because of Jesus, we can come to the throne of grace with confidence, to receive the help we need (Hebrews 4:16). Paul was referring to chronic worry when he wrote in Philippians 4:6, “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.” We are to give our worries to God in prayer, trusting him with all our burdens and cares. As a result, we will receive in return the peace we long for, “And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:7).

5 Threats Of Demanding Certainty To Change Your Beliefs

Introduction With the continual exposure to scientific, historical, and philosophical evidence for God's existence, I am continually reminded of just how strong the case for God is, in general, and the truth of Christianity specifically. Often times I wonder how someone can have enough faith to be an atheist. It is often claimed by skeptics of God's existence, and specifically the intelligent design argument, that it is best to not conclude the necessity of a designer until all naturalistic possibilities have been exhausted. This seems to provide a safe, reasonable haven for the skeptic faced with the evidence. But is it really reasonable and thus, safe? What are the implications of this claim? I want to take a few minutes to examine the reasonableness of this escape route.

What Happened to All of the November Mustache Pictures This Year?

There are people who don’t like campaigns like the Ice Bucket Challenge or the November facial hair campaigns because they’re gimmicky. The criticism is that they make a spectacle out of giving and a show out of generosity. They can make donating to charity seem like a novelty, instead of the norm.

Sexual Morality In A Christless World

Kyle: I did take a look at the links, you provided. Some of it I could click my way to the source and read it, others it would just state the book it came out of, so that was the end for me. I would encourage you to do the same, and read the sources for some of this. For example, out of the Wikipedia site “Occasionally biodiversity on the planet takes a hit in the form of a mass extinction in which the extinction rate is much higher than usual.[8]” This is one that allowed me to go to the source. Please do that, click on the “8” and read that source. Do it as though you are really interested in facts. Then come back and tell me I am denying all this “research”. Yes, I will deny research such as this.
