#AnywhereButTARGET Campaign Intensifies Ahead of Christmas as Conservatives Warn of 'Radical Agenda'

"However, despite the impact to their bottom line, Target continues to champion the left's radical agenda. Not only does Target contribute financially to liberal activists, but its dangerous policy of allowing men into women's restroom and bathroom facilities remains in place," Wray said Tuesday.

Common Objection #17- "Christianity Demeans Women!"

"Wherever Christianity has been introduced, it has lifted up women, not just in antiquity but even in modern times. Sex-selection infanticide was common in 1880 in pagan China before the influence of Christian missionaries. Girl babies were disposed of as a liability. In the last two centuries, because of Christian influences, the treatment of women worldwide has improved immensely. It was the influence of Christians that helped to abolish China's practice of binding women's feet in order to create the diminutive effect that men found attractive. This dangerous practice had led to gangrene infection, needless amputation, and sometimes even death.

Thank God, We Have the Meats

For a millennium and a half, God’s covenant people on earth saw his created world in categories of clean and unclean, holy and common. God was showing the separation between his holiness and humanity’s sin, and preparing the way for his Son. He had something to teach us that was drastically more important than the freedom to eat all animals. Then in the fullness of time, God sent his own Son, born under that first covenant (Galatians 4:4), and with the coming of history’s apex, and the new covenant, Jesus himself, shocking as it would have been at the time, “declared all foods clean.”

Is Christianity Reasonable? A Review of Forensic Faith by J. Warner Wallace

As with his other books, J. Warner skillfully makes use of both detective stories and visual illustrations. In fact, it’s clear that he has put as much effort in the content of the book as with its visual appeal. And this is no accident, especially since he’s trying to model for Christians how to make an effective case both reasonably and aesthetically.

Apologetics in Service of the Gospel

How are apologetics and evangelism related, then? When it comes to outreach, apologetics is not, in my view, necessary for evangelism, but it is often incredibly helpful. Apologetics is often characterized as pre-evangelism. Sometimes, hearing a straightforward Gospel message is all some people need. Other times, people must journey a long road in order to arrive at a place where they surrender to Christ in faith. On this road, there are often questions of an apologetic nature, some of which can be quite pressing. These questions often act as a kind of intellectual roadblock for faith. And, for many, these questions require a thoughtful answer…

I Thank God for My Doubts: A Personal Reflection

Second, and perhaps most important, my doubts drive me to rest in God’s grace rather than my own understanding. When doubts plague me, and I can’t resolve something in my mind, I am driven to God for his mercy. Jude 1:22 says to "have mercy on those who doubt." And I often think of the powerful words spoken by the Apostle Paul, when he reflected on his own weakness: “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness” (2 Cor. 12:9).

'The Man Who Invented Christmas' Is Not Your Average Christmas Movie

In Hollywood, Christmas flicks are basically ATMs. Put in your card of B-list stars, punch in the PIN of a thrown-together script, and often as not, a decent amount of cash is spit back out. By New Year’s Eve, even the people who saw the project in theaters likely forgot the major turns of the very thinly constructed plot, but are still glad to have spent two hours awash in nostalgia about lost love rekindled, returning home just in time and whatever other tired tropes were thrown in.

The Case for Thoughtfully Buying Expensive Things

This doesn’t mean we should simply adorn ourselves in the latest luxury clothing items and spend money we don’t have on expensive things.

However, we should also be just as concerned about being conscious consumer as we are about conspicuous consumption.

Nancy Pearcey: A biblically informed perspective on all of reality

‘Biblical worldview'. The term means literally a 'view of the world', a biblically informed perspective on all of reality. A worldview is like a mental map that tells you how to navigate the world effectively. It is the imprint of God's objective truth on our inner life. ― Nancy Pearcey (Total Truth)

What to Do When You Stop Liking Your Church

If loud music could bring someone in who didn’t know Jesus, and as a result they responded to the Gospel and fell in love with Jesus, wouldn’t it be worth it? The truth is: Worship style doesn’t matter. The Bible does not indicate how worship should be done. Nor does it prohibit certain styles of worship. It’s a preference issue. We can cross our arms and protest the “shallow entertainment focus of the church” or we can realize that God doesn’t care if there we are shredding on the guitar or singing acappella. His joy is in the worship. Not in the style we package it in. Certainly there are churches that care more about entertainment than they do about worship. We are often too quick to cast that judgment on them. Just because something is entertaining, doesn’t mean entertainment is the primary focus or goal.

22
Christians and Suicide Prevention

Though the Bible never explicitly commands, “Thou shalt not commit suicide,” it talks repeatedly about life and how we can best live it. Jesus said, “I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly” ( John 10:10 ). He wanted to offer us the chance not only to live, but to live more fully than we ever could on our own. In fact, Jesus emphasized that He is life ( John 14:6 ). Apart from Christ, we are dead in our sin; in a way, we are choosing suicide if we reject the gift of salvation, choosing rather to march toward eternal death and suffering in hell. We could say that Jesus raised the ultimate suicide awareness by giving His life so that all who receive Him can have eternal life.

23
The Art of Christian Persuasion

In the midst of an alarming loss of civility in discussing debated and controversial issues, what’s needed is a restoration of the art of persuasion and reasoned argument. This applies both to the discussion of controversial issues, but also to the gospel message itself. In this second half of a two-part interview, Sean McDowell and Scott Rae talk to Os Guinness about his book Fool’s Talk: Recovering the Art of Christian Persuasion. Dr. Guinness is an internationally known author and lecturer, who has modeled the craft of gospel persuasion throughout his life and work.

Prayer Is Advocacy, Too

For those of us who yearn for justice in the world, we begin here: counting our breaths. Meditating on faith, hope and love. Listening to the voice of God. Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh talks about contemplative prayer or meditation as entering the kingdom of God. I interpret that in terms of the Lord’s Prayer: “Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.”

Extraordinary Claims and Extraordinary Evidence

At first this statement may sound reasonable. For instance, I am more likely to believe you if you tell me you had breakfast this morning than I would believe you if you told me that you levitated off the ground this morning without anything holding you up. But does the fact that I believe you if you say you did something ordinary and I don't believe you if you say you did something extraordinary support the statement that "Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence?" Actually, it doesn't. Although I may believe that you ate breakfast this morning, I must obtain supporting evidence if I want to actually determine whether or not that fact is true. If you have cleaned up your kitchen, such evidence may be hard to find. I might have to pump out the contents of your stomach, for instance to see what you ate and when you ate it. It is one thing to say that I believe you ate breakfast because it is an "ordinary" event, but it is quite another to actually find enough evidence to validate your claim. My point is that actual validation of any event requires sufficient evidence.

Why Shouldn't We Trust the Non-Canonical "Gospel of Truth"? | Cold Case Christianity

How Does It Corroborate the Life of Jesus? Like other heretical accounts that claim to be authoritative The Gospel of Truth acknowledges canonical truths even while it twists the narrative to legitimize Gnostic beliefs and theology. The text presumes and affirms the existence and authority of a number of canonical letters and Gospels, serving as a Gnostic commentary on some of these texts. The Gospel of Truth references many of Paul’s letters (such as 1 Corinthians, 2 Corinthians, Galatians, Ephesians, and Colossians), many letters from other New Testament writers (such as 1 John, Revelation and Hebrews) and some of the canonical Gospels (such as the Gospel of John and the Gospel of Matthew). It also acknowledges the fact that Jesus was a wise teacher who far surpassed the teachers of his day. He is referred to as “the Savior” who came to redeem those who did not yet know the Father. The Gospel of Truth also affirms the parable of the lost sheep and describes Jesus as the “shepherd”. It also acknowledges the fact that Jesus was nailed to a cross.

This is slacktivism folks. Chances are high that this was written on an Apple computer in America. What exactly is the proposed solution to this problem, and don’t say awareness, that doesn’t really solve anything by itself.

10 Creation Essentials: Old Earth or Young Earth?

I frequently hear OEC critique YEC for not being scientific. They sometimes completely ignore scientific discoveries in order to keep their YE perspective. But also, YEC criticize OEC for compromising scripture. It is said that only YEC preserve biblical authority. It is also believed by some that if you accept an old universe then you also accept darwinian evolution. For that reason, we should stick to YEC. What about death before the fall? What about radiometric dating? There seem to be so many objections and points of disagreement between the two sides.

Why Francis Schaeffer Matters: The Church in Culture

Francis Schaeffer’s view of the church in modern culture is multifaceted yet cuts straight to the point.  He does not mince words or play clever evangelical games.  He believes one major problem with Christians is that they see things in bits and pieces.  They have failed to see that modern man’s despair has come to fruition because of a shift in worldview.  He contends that Christians should begin to think in terms of the big picture.  They should have a view of spiritual reality that is authentic and covers all areas of life.  Indeed, the Lordship of Christ covers all life and all life equally.

We will celebrate as we wait for God to send others to us to replenish our laborers and resources, just as he always has in previous seasons of decline for these same reasons.

Today’s Church Needs the ‘Timeless Spirit’ of Pietism

First emerging as a reform movement within the Lutheran Church of the late 1600s, Pietism quickly spread to other churches, eventually influencing the Puritan, Baptist, Methodist, and Brethren traditions. Despite its reach, Pietism doesn’t leave a clear structural trail. “Suspicious of faith becoming too institutional or too intellectual,” Gehrz and Pattie explain, “Pietists did not generate the denominational structures or doctrinal documents that would have set up their movement for long-term survival.” Describing Pietism as yeast, they see it as a “timeless spirit” or “ethos” that brings out the potential of various traditions while leaving behind little trace of itself.

Is Oral Sex Okay?

It’s episode number 400. Such a milestone should be marked with an epic episode. You ask the questions, I offer them to Pastor John, and he answers them. That’s how it works on the Ask Pastor John podcast. We get a lot of questions about relationships, dating, marriage, and of course sex. And that leads to episodes that may not be suitable for all listeners and are really designed to be listened to by married couples. Such is the case today. In the last month ten questions have arrived on the question of oral sex. The question is always the same: Pastor John, is this practice permissible in a Christian marriage, or is it always sinful?
