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.

4 Arrive Alive

Now since this is a Christian worldview broadcast, let me give you a Christian worldview take on all of this: Needlessly endangering your life and the lives of others is bad. When you’re behind the wheel, to quote the Bible, do it with all your might. So put down the phone. Turn off the apps. Arrive alive.

#1: Are We Raising a Generation of Almost Christians? [Podcast] - Jonathan Morrow

Are we raising a generation of almost Christians? Why are students walking away from the faith? As moms and dads, how do we help our children build a lasting faith? How do we overcome a culture dominated by feelings? How do we make a difference in the lives of our children? These are just few of the questions I talk about in this episode of Your Worldview Podcast.

Philosopher Stephen T. Davis on Tolerance

"There is no necessary connection between being an objectivist on truth and being intolerant.  Of course, there is a historical tendency that can be disturbing--a sense of absolute certainty does lead some people to intolerance and imperialism.  Still, relativists who try to make this point don't seem to realize that there can be moral systems that are taken to be objectively true and that teach or even require tolerance...The Christian motivation for tolerance is not that nobody has the objective truth but that Jesus told us to love all people and especially our enemies.  And we Christians try to practice tolerance and respect for people precisely because we believe that Jesus' teaching is true (i.e., objectively true)." 1 Courage and Godspeed,Chad Footnote: 1.

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).

11 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.

12
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.

Sin Will Never Make You Happy

What is the sword of the Spirit? It’s the word of God (Ephesians 6:17). Here’s where faith comes in. “Faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ” (Romans 10:17). The word of God cuts through the fog of Satan’s lies and shows me where true and lasting happiness is to be found. And so the word helps me stop trusting in the potential of sin to make me happy, and instead entices me to trust in God’s promise of joy (Psalm 16:11).

Who Could Be Happy in a World Like Ours?

And yet, so often, happiness seems to be pulled just out of our reach — institutionalized abortion, mass shootings, the recurrence of cancer, moral collapse, unfaithful friends, personal sins that seem so embedded in our bones that they just won’t die. Who could be happy in such a world as ours?

My book assembles the most important of these remains and then interprets the remains and the written records in a way that sheds light on one another.

27 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.

Like 'the Old Testament is filled with violent passages yet you choose to believe Christianity is peaceful. It's for the same reason I believe Islam is peaceful despite some violent verses.'"

35 The 2016 Youth Reads Christmas Book List

If you have teens or preteens to buy books for this Christmas, we're here to help! I've compiled a list of all the best-reviewed books on the Youth Reads page over the past two years, with direct links to Amazon or the Colson Center store. (Note: Where series are mentioned, I've linked instead to the original Youth Reads review, which contains links to all the books in that series.) "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn" by Mark Twain. Target audience: Middle school, high school. This classic is a cultural snapshot, a critical look at a particular time and place in our nation’s history, delivered with perceptiveness and wit that could only come from Mark Twain. (Reminder: What is now a highly offensive racial slur was then a common part of speech and as such is used liberally, causing the book to be challenged frequently in schools. Parents should be aware.) "Breeder" by K. B. Hoyle. Target audience: High school. Hoyle's award-winning sci-fi novel tackles weighty topics—trustworthiness, human worth, reproductive technology, cloning—realistically and honestly. The author's Christian worldview shapes her vision of dystopia, and offers a note of hope.

Oy With the Poodles Already

In case you lived under a rock in a prior decade, Gilmore Girls was a WB (and CW) dramedy that aired from 2000 to 2007. In it, Lorelai Gilmore (Lauren Graham) was a single mother who raised her brainy daughter Rory (Alexis Bledel) in the small Connecticut town of Stars Hollow, populated by quirky, lovable characters, especially Luke (Scott Patterson), the gruff guy who owned the diner and Lorelai’s on-and-off love interest, and Lorelai’s best friend Sookie (Melissa McCarthy!), a chef. The show was funny, noticeably fast-talking, and mostly friendly enough for parents and teens to watch together; it grappled with some very big themes in both Lorelai’s and Rory’s coming-of-age stories, and it did it without seeming like a Story About Growing Up.

The Book of Revelation: How Difficult Was Its Journey into the Canon?

The Book of Revelation: How Difficult Was Its Journey into the Canon? by Michael J. Kruger The story of the New Testament canon is a fascinating one, with many twists and turns.  There are books that were accepted very quickly, almost from the start (e.g., the four gospels), and there are other books that struggled to find a home (e.g., 2 Peter). And then there is the book of Revelation.  Few today would contest the claim that the book of Revelation stands as one of the most controversial, complicated, and esoteric books in the New Testament canon.  Perhaps it should come as no surprise, then, that its reception by the early church was equally complicated and controversial. But, the story of the book of Revelation is not what one might expect. Other debated books tended to have a lukewarm reception at the earliest stages, only to gain more and more acceptance over time. Revelation, on the other hand, had nearly the opposite experience; it had a very early and positive reception in many parts of the church, only to run into serious challenges at a later point.

Do You Hunger and Thirst for Righteousness?

I thought, “What’s wrong with this picture? How could a Christian establish life goals and not have at the top the attainment of righteousness in the sight of God?” Did not our Lord say, “Seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you” (Matt. 6:33)? One of the scariest things that Jesus ever said was the warning He gave that “unless your righteousness exceeds that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven” (Matt. 5:20). The Pharisees were devoted to the quest for righteousness, but they ended up in a distorted pursuit of self-righteousness. It can be easy to dismiss the pursuit of righteousness as always ending in an inflated self-righteousness. But this does not eliminate the obligation that Christ gives us to seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness.

Christian Case Makers: Don't Allow Your Vigilance To Become Vitriol | Cold Case Christianity

When the authors of Scripture encourage us to evangelize the lost, they seldom warn us about being disrespectful or harsh. Peter, however, when encouraging us to make a defense for the hope we have in Jesus, does find it necessary to warn us about these two attributes of vitriol. Interesting isn’t it? There’s something about Christian Case Making that can sometimes lead to vitriol. It’s our prideful nature as fallen humans, even as we do the best we can to be vigilant; God has warned us not to let this vigilance turn into vitriol.

42 The Bodily Resurrection of Jesus | Reasonable Faith

In conclusion, we have seen that the critical argument designed to drive a wedge between Paul and the gospels is fallacious. Neither the argument from the appearance to Paul nor the argument from Paul's doctrine of the resurrection body serves to set Paul against the gospels. Quite the opposite, we have seen that Paul's evidence serves to confirm the gospels' narratives of Jesus's bodily resurrection and that their physicalism is probably historically well-founded, that is to say, Jesus did rise bodily from the dead and appear physically to the disciples. And finally we have seen that the gospels present like Paul a balanced view of the nature of Jesus's resurrection body. On the one hand, Jesus has a body--he is not a disembodied soul. For the gospels and Paul alike the incarnation is an enduring state, not limited to the 30 some years of Jesus's earthly life. On the other hand, Jesus's body is a supernatural body. We must keep firmly in mind that for the gospels as well as Paul, Jesus rises glorified from the grave. The gospels and Paul agree that the appearances of Jesus ceased and that physically he has left this universe for an indeterminate time.

But ask yourself,  if relationships with people are important—what about a relationship with God?

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).

God speaks to us through our circumstances. If we’re going to live a life of significance, God’s got to make constant course corrections, and one of the things he uses to do that is the circumstances that come into our lives. When you start to listen to God through circumstances, impressions, teachers, or the Bible, sometimes he’s going to lead you in ways that you don’t understand. Hang in there! Following God is not always easy, but it will reap more blessing in your life than you can imagine.
