Cold-Case Christianity for Kids - A Review

Cold-Case Christianity for Kids – A Review A couple of days before I met Jim Wallace for the first time, I received an unexpected package in the mail. It was a copy of Cold-Case Christianity For Kids by Jim and Susie Wallace. I’d heard about this book and was looking forward to getting my hands …

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.

Top 16 Books of 2016

8 — Vaneetha Rendall Risner, The Scars That Have Shaped Me: How God Meets Us in Suffering (Desiring God) . This year brought several books on personal suffering — for men, women, singles, couples, and parents. Every Christian suffers, and some Christians suffer inordinately, but very few have suffered like Vaneetha. In the words of John Newton, God sometimes sends extra suffering into the life of a saint, to provide a vision of God’s mercy to us all. Like a burning bush unconsumed, this saint suffers in ways unimaginable to most of us — but she survives the flame, offering us all fresh grace and hope for the various trials and suffering more normal to the ordinary Christian life. Born in India, she contracted polio as an infant, after it had been “eradicated,” due to a doctor’s error. Today she suffers from post-polio syndrome, a debilitating progressive disease, yet Veneetha is a woman unconsumed by the flame of pain in her body, in her children (she lost an infant son due to another doctor’s error), and in her relationships. I don’t think I’ve ever read a story of more diverse suffering.

Worship Interrupted

We know that God hears our pleas from the pews. “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.” (Luke 11:9). God loves to give us the gift of himself, through his Holy Spirit (Luke 11:13). So, when he hears, “Father, help me to hear from you this morning” or, “Father, help me to be patient,” he answers. In that moment, God is parenting me. And because my heavenly Father parents me, I have what I need to reflect his loving care to my children in the pews next to me.

The End Is Near — Are You Ready?

Remember how Peter dealt with this in his second letter? “Scoffers will come in the last days with scoffing, following their own sinful desires. They will say, ‘Where is the promise of his coming? For ever since the fathers fell asleep, all things are continuing as they were from the beginning of creation’” (2 Peter 3:3–4). And then he responds like this: “But do not overlook this one fact, beloved, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.” Two days have passed since Jesus left. “The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance” (2 Peter 3:8–9). Jesus told us in advance there would be a delay.

Sunday News — Martin Scorcese’s new movie “Silence”

It is striking to see the brother’s-keeper pattern show up at the other end of Scorsese’s career, in “Silence.” As the two Jesuits set out for Japan, they find a translator named Kichijiro in a seedy neighborhood and drag him into their mission. He resists. He drinks himself sick. He lies. He bemoans his fate. A convert, he apostatized and was allowed to live, while the shogunate killed his brothers and sisters. Rodrigues decides that he is Kichijiro’s keeper and grimly bears up as Kichijiro apostatizes again and again and finally betrays him to the shogunate. But as Rodrigues is racked by doubts, the peasant becomes the priest’s keeper, a man whose faith is rooted in his recognition of his own weakness. Who is more Christlike: the person who is strong in faith or the one who is weak, who is humiliated? “Humiliation: That’s the key,” Scorsese told me. “As Kichijiro says in the movie: ‘Where is the place for a weak person in the world we’re in? Why wasn’t I born when there wasn’t any persecution? I would have been a great Christian.’ ”…

The Truth about Fidel and Raul

More Fidel Castro Fidel Castro and Dead Utopianism Cuba Before Castro Castro: A Letter from Khrushchev All historical evidence points to the opposite conclusion. Raul is not a “different” Castro. He is his brother’s chosen successor who has spent the last eight years implementing his dynastic plan. Unlike Cuba, however, the United States has an actual democracy, and our recent elections suggest there is significant resistance among the American people to the Obama administration’s policy of appeasement towards hostile dictators. We can — and should — send clear signals that that policy is at an end. Among other things, we should halt the dangerous “security cooperation” we have begun with the Castro regime, which extends to military exercises, counter-narcotics efforts, communications, and navigation — all of which places our sensitive information in the hands of a hostile government that would not hesitate to share it with other enemies from Tehran to Pyongyang.

Fidel Castro: The Death of a Tyrant

Men who rose to the very top of their democratic countries admired and loved Fidel Castro. Pierre Trudeau was one of them. He asked Castro to be an honorary pallbearer at his funeral. He made the same request of Jimmy Carter. Carter and Castro met at that funeral, which took place in 2000, and this began a relationship between them. When Castro died, Carter said, “Rosalynn and I share our sympathies with the Castro family and the Cuban people on the death of Fidel Castro. We remember fondly our visits with him in Cuba and his love of his country.”

No, We Can't 'Agree to Disagree' on Marriage, And Here's Why

For years, a steady drumbeat of Christian pastors, musicians, and authors have announced they’ve “evolved” on the issue of homosexuality. Authors like Matthew Vines and more recently, Jen Hatmaker, musician Nicole Nordeman and Yale philosopher Nicholas Wolterstorff argue that the Bible doesn’t actually condemn same-sex “marriage.” Christians, they say, should bless such unions as “holy.”

Evolutionary Creationism and the Image of God in Mankind

First off let me congratulate you on your amazing defense of Christianity as you travel about the world, debate, and lecture. I am a major fan, to say the least. However I have a question that has been put on my mind lately, concerning your views about creation and evolution. First off, I think you are spot on when you say evolution (in its many meanings) is not incompatible with Theism, rendering it useless as a objection to the concept of God. Aside from this, if I understand you right, you hold that views such as evolution[ary] creationism are compatible with the account of Genesis in the Bible. What bothers me about this is that I think, by holding this view, that God used evolution to bring about the diversity of life upon the Earth, including humans, you weaken and eliminate the notion that mankind was created in God's image, or at least make it problematic. Now hopefully I understand you to mean by evolutionary creationism that you think God created life at a basic level, that being cellular, and directed it to create the diversity we see everywhere and at some point on the evolutionary timeline humans came about and where then chosen to be special to God.

When and How Did the Grand Canyon Form?

The Kaibab Plateau now stands some 3,000 feet (900 m) above the adjacent Marble Platform, both part of the Colorado Plateau (figure 5). But the lack of erosional cliffs on the north and eastern sides of the Kaibab Plateau suggests that the southern end of the plateau continued to be uplifted after the rest of the region had stabilized. If this uplifting occurred just prior to, or even during, the channelization phase of the receding Flood waters, it would account for the lack of cliffs. It would also account for the direction of the side canyons eroded into the Kaibab Plateau. For example, some of the side canyons carved into the Marble Platform that join to form Marble Canyon, drain to the northeast, which seems to be the wrong direction. But that would have been the direction in which the receding waters flowed as the Kaibab Plateau was uplifted. Since the Kaibab Plateau is higher at its southern rim, this would also account for the longer and deeper side canyons carved into the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, which also follows along that southern edge of the plateau.

Waiting in the Era of Instant Gratification

The promises of God are now but not yet. We are a part of the Kingdom of Heaven, but it is not finished yet. We get to be a part of that process. We get to be active participants in that kingdom. Sometimes, like the Israelites during Jeremiah’s time, we won’t get to see the fruit of those promises.

5 Common Objections to the Moral Argument

The Moral Argument for the existence of God has enjoyed a long tradition of defense from theistic philosophers and thinkers throughout the history of Western thought…and a long tradition of misunderstandings and objections from even some of the most brilliant minds. In its abductive form, the moral argument seeks to infer God as the best explanation for the moral facts about the universe. One popular formulation is as follows:

Can We Pray to Jesus?

This note was a promissory note with my signature. When one of the girls came to present the note to me, she was coming in my name, or authority. The girls had every right to expect that I would take them out for ice cream when they brought back the note with my promise and my name on it. Jesus gave us some promises as a divine being with the authority to make much greater promises than I could make. We come to Him or to the Father in His authority. He has given us the “promissory note” with His “signature” so that we can be assured of the answer to our prayers. Praying in His name is praying with faith that He will keep his promises as the good, faithful, and all-powerful God. Whether those faith-filled words are directed to the Son or to the Father makes little difference, since both Father and Son are the one true God. (If one wants to use the phrase “in Jesus’ name” at the end of a prayer prayed to Jesus, “in your name, Amen” can be used instead.)

Why I Love Atheists

I certainly don’t claim to represent all atheists in this post. There are a huge variety of people who consider themselves atheists (in terms of belief systems and demeanor), just as there is in Christianity, Islam, and many other religions. And there are even debates about what constitutes atheism—is it belief that God does not exist, or simply the lack of belief in God? My goal is not to enter into these kinds of debates, but simply to reflect on many atheists I have encountered personally, or through their writings, and what I love about them .

Love Does Not Begin with You

A biblical definition of love begins with God, never with us (1  John 4:9–10). God is love itself; it’s his character that defines love. And because he is love (1 John 4:8, using the related noun  agapê ), he acts with love toward an undeserving world (John  3:16 ; 1  John 3:1, 16) to save them from their sins and reconcile them to himself (Rom. 5:8). The pure and perfect love of God is typified in the love relationship between God the Father and God the Son, which Jesus shows to his disciples (John  17:26 ). 

32
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).

33
Satan’s Favorite Weapon Against You

Ferocious battles with demonic unbelief are part of the normal Christian life. This is war. If the fighting doesn’t get fierce, we are likely not engaged or doing anything threatening to Satan. But if Satan is fighting us with the Kryptonite of unbelief, he perceives a threat. When you feel yourself wilting, take heart. Through the promises of Jesus, the Spirit of Jesus will help you overcome your enemy’s most lethal weapon (John 16:33).

34
Science and God: is there a Conflict?

There is a popular perception that there is an inevitable conflict between science and belief in God. This idea is often assumed in discussions about science in the media and is promoted by some prominent scientists who are also atheists such as Peter Atkins, Richard Dawkins and Stephen Hawking. Nobel prize winner Peter Higgs, who famously predicted the existence of what became known as the Higgs boson, which was discovered in 2012, is also an atheist, but he claims that this has more to do with his family background than any conflict with science; in fact, he criticizes Dawkins for taking a fundamentalist approach . Other prominent scientists such as William Phillips (another Nobel prize winner), Don Page and Simon Conway Morris are religious believers. Clearly, there are different views and the issue can’t be settled by a vote anyway. So is there a conflict or not?

35
What to Do When Serving God Feels Mundane

Good article! Too often we think of the Call of Christ on our lives in terms of doing rather than being. We wrestle with what God has called us to do, but the real question is what God has called us to be. Paul seemed quite at peace with being a tent-maker while he told people about Christ. None of the conflict between the secular and the spiritual I have so often experienced and have seen so many young people live with.

Does Protestantism Need to Die?

The End of Protestantism is the long-awaited expansion of the provocative shorter remarks Leithart has made in this vein over the past few years. He hasn’t exactly softened his tone. Here, he announces, “Jesus bids Protestantism to come and die.” But there is more: “He calls us to exhibit the unity that the Father has with the Son in the Spirit.” That is, “we are called by our crucified Lord to die to what we are now so that we may become what we will be.” What draws all of Leithart’s arguments forward is essentially a syllogism: Jesus prays for the church’s unity, and Jesus will get what he prays for, so the church will be united.

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.

The Bible Through The Eyes Of An Atheist

Not many people have read all of it, though. I know I haven’t, and I doubt I ever will, for despite years of going to church religiously, I am an atheist. Perhaps the roots of my atheism lie in being bored during sermons and reading the bible instead. At first I was looking for amusing bits in Proverbs (“A nagging wife is like water going drip-drip-drip on a rainy day.” Proverbs 27:15 ) but the more I read of the bible, the less comfortable I became with it.
