Watch the ‘Inside Out’ Emotions Get Emotional Watching the ‘Star Wars’ Trailer

One of the upsides of Disney acquiring the Star Wars franchise is videos like this. In this Disney-Pixar YouTube short, Anger, Joy Fear, Sadness and Disgust from Inside Out collectively react (with expected amounts of emotional excitement) to the new trailer. They, like all of us, can't wait for the Dec. 18 release.

Universal Studios Is Building a Jimmy Fallon Theme Park Ride

Universal Studios in Orlando is finally making that late-night comedy theme park ride you’ve always wanted. Jimmy Fallon announced on The Tonight Show this week that in 2017, the amusement park would open “Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon,” an interactive ride featuring the cast of the late-night show, 3D, 4D and “8D” elements as well as, of course, an overpriced gift shop.

Fallon Brings Back '80s MLB Star Who Was Featured in Incredible Rapping Ford Commercial

As you are probably aware, the Royals and Mets are currently playing in the World Series. To honor the big event, Jimmy Fallon found a painfully awkward '80s commercial featuring MLB star Bret Saberhagen, who just so happened to play for both teams at one point. Even though the sketch (which features “1986 Bret Saberhagen”) begins to come off the rails, the rap tribute is still pure Tonight Show gold.

Passion Planner, Pay it Forward!

I decided to make a tool that helped people clearly define their personal goals and dreams and put them at the forefront of their attention, and a planner was PERFECT for this. Passion Planner helps people break down their long and short terms goals into more actionable steps and gives them a place to incorporate these steps into their daily lives.

3 How True Art Points to God

God gives us the ability to make art, but art that is put to His use. God fills the workers in Exodus with the Holy Spirit to create the tabernacle and the ark, and we should model our own art off of this inspired act of creation. Art created by Christians should do what Bezalel did: create a space in which individuals can meet with God. Art is incarnational on both sides of production and reception. Like Noah’s ark, too, true art takes on a life of its own that is completely outside the hands of the creator—a life imbued by God.

Why a Georgia state trooper waited to tell four children they were orphans

“When we were greeted by four children dressed and ready for trick-or-treating, we knew we were going to have some problems,” Bradley told The Washington Post.

5 Kel Mitchell: Christ Helped Me Overcome Drugs and Suicidal Thoughts

I have seen, felt and been in all types of sin and have been done wrong by others. I know how you feel. Don't be lost anymore! Let go of your past. Be a new creature in Christ! I did! I let Him in and Life is GOOD now, my eyes have been opened. I have always known God but now I have a true understanding of who He is and why I am here and why God has kept me safe, and sinful ways are no longer around me because I am surrounded with the love of Jesus and I have allowed Him to make the decisions in my life. I study the word I worship His name with praying and song.

6 Christians Shouldn’t Try to Scare the Hell Out of People

I am no longer a Christian. I thought I would start with that disclaimer. I was one, however, for 40 years. So, it was a legitimate experience for me. Now that I am on the outside looking in, it is so easy for me to see the corner Christianity is backed into because, while, yes, God is supposedly a "loving" god, he also sends you to hell if you don't buy into his schtick. In fact, that is the sole reason for you going to hell. You didn't buy his schtick. You can be a really great human being that lives to make the world a better place and still go to hell just because you didn't drink the kool-aid, and you can be a murdering, raping, child molesting, thieving, greedy person that believes in Jesus and the angels will meet you with open arms at the Pearly Gates. Period. There are going to be those that come to him for whatever reason, but there will always be those that will never believe he is loving because, frankly, he isn't and pll see it and know it. It's the information age. People can now research and see that Christianity is not this lovely organic relationship. It is a manipulative, master/slave relationship that is absolutely founded in fear.

I was in a committed relationship with two people—and then I got pregnant.

The night I found out I was going to be a mom I sat down next to my husband Kevin, clutching the pregnancy test in one hand and holding his hand with the other, the three minutes waiting for the test results felt like forever. I think in that span of time I felt every emotion known to man: happy at the possibilities, mad that I had thrown up the steak and cheese I made for myself earlier that day, anxious to know the results, and of course scared beyond belief. My husband has always been someone I could see myself building a family with. We were together for three years, but I knew on our first date this was a man I could spend the rest of my life with.

Breaking Free from ‘My Story’

Our culture values individual autonomy and self-authentication over things like commitment to causes and institutions greater than ourselves. From sexuality to work to divorce to friendship, we live in a world that encourages immediate and unquestioned self-recreation if our felt desires aren’t being met. The best way to resist being reigned in by some outside truth claim is to insist that it doesn’t take into account “my story”—that the person making the claim lacks empathy and would encourage (or at least, dare not challenge) my current lifestyle if they could just see things “from my point of view.”

Simultaneous Joy and Sorrow

How can someone have unshakeable joy in Jesus and deal with the hard and painful realities of life? In fifteen minutes, John Piper embraces and explains the necessary tension between joy and sorrow in the Christian life. With every trial we face, God has given us a specific grace designed for that trouble.

10 Christians Need to Stop Boycotting Stuff

I must say, I am tempted to agree with Franklin Graham, just because of his last name and the utter respect I have for his father and by extension him. But I do still agree, because I believe we need to speak up against things in everyday life that oppose God. That is how we engage the culture. What really is the other option? Ignore it? Silence? It's not so much about putting them out of business, but about making a statement, and registering our position. People have the right to their opinion yes, but evil should always be contested.. i think a fb post to a kermit cartoon is an appropriately proportioned action... Silence is not the solution.

11 Have We Made ‘Adventure’ an Idol?

It is healthy and natural to get excited about new experiences, to be passionate about the way we live, and to live with enthusiasm. But when chasing the next big thing dominates our routines and choices, we are slowly giving control of our hearts and minds to the ways of the world. If we choose to turn down good things for better things, God will reveal Himself in ways we had previously not had time for Him to do so.

12 I Repented. Why Don’t I Feel Better?

Lately, I’ve been going through an intense time of confessing and repenting both to God and to others. Without giving all the nitty-gritty details, a sin pattern in my life came to light and I’ve had to face how much I’ve hurt others and how far I’ve wandered from God. It has been a painful experience, and while I know logically that this is healthy, I still feel tempted to retreat back into that sin. I’ve always been told that repenting and turning to Jesus makes everything better, but it doesn’t feel like it. Am I wrong to feel this way?

Sherry Turkle: How to Keep Your iPhone from Destroying Your Relationships

In the late 1990s, one of my graduate students said to me, “I had the weirdest experience today. I had a friend with a cell phone, and in the middle of a conversation, he put his hand in my face and said, ‘Just hold on for a second, I need to take this call.’ ” My student said to me, “It made me feel like he was putting me on pause, like I was a tape recorder.”

14 The Problem with Saying ‘All Lives Matter’

I wish black lives mattered when it came to abortion. That's the problem. The #hashtag only comes up when a black person is affected by someone who is not black. Why doesn't the #hashtag come up when there is a black on black crime? There needs to be consistency. Your example of the house being broken into is so silly. Of course, if a black man is shot, people are going to grieve and be hurt because of the situation. If my friend John gets shot, I won't look at my buddies around me and talk about how much their lives matter to me. No, I'm going to be focused on John and his life and how much it meant. It should be John's life matters. It should be Trayvons life matters. Your example is saying the focus shouldn't be on all lives but the black lives that are affected. Well in that case, the focus shouldn't be on black lives but the life that was affected. If we focus on every life individually wether black, white, asian, then unity will exist, but if we only focus on one race at a time, then division will exist. I listen to Urban Family Talk every single day and they talk about this from a black persons perspective in a biblical view and they would disagree with everything that you have said.

15 Why Guarding Your Heart Isn't Enough

I mean to say . . . what if there is a great Christian guy out there who you don't have the luxury of hanging out with in a group of friends for a long time in advance? Maybe you've met them once or twice through a mutual friend or something. If you're so guarded that you're unwilling to go on a couple first dates then you might really miss out. Just going on those dates doesn't mean you are getting into anything serious or intense, probably the guy is just as hesitant and skeptical at that point. It just means you are interested enough to think he's worth getting to know more. And if you're not interested, then it's not fair to string him along as a friend.

16 REI Stores Will Close on Black Friday So People Can Spend Time Outdoors

The outdoor gear chain REI (Recreational Equipment, Inc.) thinks people should spend more time actually enjoying the outdoors, even if that means spending less time shopping. The chain has announced a somewhat unprecedented move: It’s closing all of its 140+ stores on Black Friday—traditionally one of the biggest retail shopping days of the year—asking customers and employees to do something outside instead. The idea is part of a campaign REI has launched to get people to use #OptOutside on social media the day after Thanksgiving, to show them doing actual outdoor activities on their day off, instead of just walking around through stores. They’ve even launched a website showcasing local hiking trails to check out on Black Friday.

18 A Christian Case for Ending the War on Drugs

America’s “War on Drugs” first came to being in the '70s as a way to fight the proliferation of drugs. But decades later, two of its main strategies—the complete prohibition of most recreational drugs and long sentences for crimes as simple as possession—are being reconsidered. And for Christians, even those who oppose drug use, the consequences are significant.

19 I Don’t Know What to Do With My Life. Help!

I have been working what I've realized is a dead-end job for the last few years, and I'm ready to move on, but I am trying to figure out what on earth I'm supposed to do for the rest of my life. I have been offered a ministry position at my church, but even though I love my church, I just don't feel like that's what I'm supposed to do. I still have a lot of debt from school, so I feel like I need to be somewhat practical. So my question is, how do I choose where to go next, and how do I know that is where God wants me, without feeling crippled by college debt making me jump at a chance to make money?

5 good reasons to read the entire Bible every year

During my lengthier-than-I-first-intended career as a seminary student, I followed the same practice and after a few years, I had read through the Bible several times. The results have been massively helpful for both my walk with the Lord and the teaching and preaching ministry he has given me. More recently, comments by two of my ministry heroes, John Piper and R. C. Sproul, have encouraged me to continue this approach to Bible intake. Piper: “When all your favorite preachers are gone, and their books are forgotten, you will have your Bible. Master it.” And then, there are these manly words from Dr. Sproul: “I’ll retire when they pry my cold, dead fingers off my Bible.” Words like those encourage me to stay saturated in God’s Word. Reading through it perennially is one means of accomplishing that.

21 How Would Jesus Vote?

We need to stop that. But how exactly does the Christian community live in this election season as a signpost of the kingdom rather than a pawn in a political power play? There are at least four ways we can start.

22 Why Doubt Can Give You Hope

Interesting article. I don't quite get all of it though. Strobel makes doubt and disbelief sound like very different things, but looking up dictionary definitions of "doubt" and "disbelief" it seems the two words are synonymous or at the very least that doubt is a spectrum of which disbelief is a part of. It seems to me that there is not too much of a difference between "strongly doubting" something (e.g. a Christian tenet) and "disbelieving" it. Does Strobel see doubt as a spectrum of how uncertain someone is? It seems like Strobel logically separates the concepts of doubting and disbelieving in a black-and-white manner. This seems inconsistent and contrary to how doubt actually works. He wholeheartedly affirms doubt yet condemns disbelief strongly. At what point does doubt become disbelief and worthy of condemnation? If Strobel affirms that doubting Christian tenets isn't bad or wrong, I assume he would agree that there are legitimate intellectual reasons that people doubt said tenets. At what point do legitimate intellectual reasons that people doubt Christian tenets go too far and become disbelief? It seems that setting a specific point is completely arbitrary.

23
That Vital Moment in Every Preacher’s Week

As a pastor I feel this pinch of impatience in a pronounced way. Pastors work all week-long putting their heart, mind and souls into their teachings for the week. Every time we open the Bible to preach God’s Word we feel as though it is the most important thing that we have ever said and will ever say. Preaching and teaching the Bible is an urgent and important matter. Like the Old Testament prophets we have a tremendous burden from the Lord that needs to be preached, heard, received and applied.

24
Coming to Terms with a Post-Christian World

Gerson and Wehner are surely correct that Christians must learn to live in a world—I would call it a post-Christian world—that accepts same-sex marriage. And they are right to say that as a general rule, Christians should work with LGBT citizens and their allies on causes both sides support.

25 Actually, God Does Want You to Be Happy

Of course, God’s desire for us to be happy doesn’t mean we won’t have times that we’re not. He takes us through seasons of suffering and difficulty, because He does desire more for us than only happiness; or what we think is happiness. He wants to refine our character, help us heal from the past and develop into our emotional and spiritual potential. This process often feels painful, and He doesn’t ask us to just pretend like everything’s OK and smile through it.

26
Your Obedience is Not Just About You

There are also horizontal implications. The Christian life is intended to be lived our in community or in the context of other believers. We are to forgive, forebear, exercise patience, love, and care for one another even as we teach, admonish, exhort, and serve one another (cf. Gal. 6:1-2; Eph. 4:1-2; Col. 1:28-29, Col. 3:16; Heb. 3:13; etc). What is the impact of you not reading your Bible, skipping out on the preaching of the Word, dozing off during the Lord’s Table, or neglecting prayer? Your church family will suffer. They need you to be growing in grace and ready to serve them with the Word (Eph. 4:15). Let me give you an example. In our church we recently had a member go home to be with the Lord. He was a younger guy and it was hard for everyone. It was especially hard for those close to him. Over the days ahead I saw dozens of people step up to serve the family. People were speaking the Word of God, bringing gospel encouragement, providing a shoulder to cry upon, crying themselves, cooking food, and opening their homes (just to name a few). Now, here is the question: How did that happen? You don’t just roll out of the rack and say, “I know how to give solid biblical counsel to a grieving brother or sister today.

27 There’s No Difference Between ‘Spiritual’ and ‘Secular’

In the one version I searched it is true that the word "spiritual" only appeared once in the OT, but this is entirely misleading, since the word "spirit" occurs over 200 times, and the word "soul" (often a synonym for spirit) occurs over 400 times. The Jewish OT authors were deeply spiritual people and understood that spiritual matters transcended material matters. But they were very familiar with secular thinking, and the fact that there is a difference.

28 Be Known for What You’re for, Not Just What You’re Against

Do Christians know what they actually are for? Can they articulate it in a graceful and non-judging way? Do they understand God's story and what he is actually trying to do? Can they communicate the positives of God's plan for sex, money, justice, marriage, humility, economics, etc.? Can they continue to watch the secularization of society and not fight against it but instead offer a new way full of life and hope and peace? Will their lives reflect theses truths or will it reflect compromise and hypocrisy?

29
How to Heal When the Church Hurts You

Churches really ought to be a refuge for the weary, a safe house for the broken, a rescue for the abused and mistreated. These local expressions of God’s gathered people are meant to offer the love, hope, and healing that God himself offers us in the gospel.

30 3 Excuses We Use When We Mess Up

Most of us get shy and shameful when we hear the word “self-control,” mainly because most of us aren't good at it. Self-control is discipline’s ugly big brother that is almost impossible to get right, and nearly as difficult to talk about. Every since I was eight years old, the very term has made me fidget in my chair. It’s uncomfortable for me because I’m bad at eating healthy and I really like buying shoes.

31 Why Aren’t There Miracles Anymore?

I’ve been doing a study on the miracles of Christ with a group from church, and it’s made me think a lot about how God works. It seems like in the Old Testament and during Jesus’ time on earth, there was a lot of very obvious, direct divine intervention. Why don’t we see those kinds of miracles happening today?

32 8 Lies We Believe About Porn

Your urges are natural, and porn is an easy if not lesser outlet to release those urges. Learn to forgive yourself and cut yourself some slack. You're not in the minority if you watch porn. And you're not a monster either. Does it effect how you see people? Absolutely, but it can be overcome, and unlike this article's statements, some(not all) can control those thoughts. I personally choose to refrain from watching porn. Friends in committed relationships watch porn together and find that it enhances their sex life in the right mindset. Learn about those people and others, understand their sexuality and their lives. Remove the weight we put on sex. It's neither as amazing or shameful as some make it out to be. Porn and christian culture alike inflate it beyond recognition. It's a smashing good time, and can be a pretty underwhelming time, but if you practice safely, it's not gonna change your entire life. It's a garnish on existence. Explore it, be honest with yourself and others about it, and enjoy it.

33 The Dangers of Church Lingo

As a pastor, I hear at least 50 words that are exclusively used in the koinonia of the church gathering. I use at least 65 of them. And it has to stop. Subconsciously we believe we need this “language”, and that’s a lie from the pit of hell (and the sinner’s prayer will not save us from it). Christian-ese is confusing for power evangelism, missional communities and servant leadership. If we want our discipleship to truly succeed, we need to die to the sub-culture of churchianity and re-learn the true meaning of being a follower of Christ. Because honestly guys, WWJD?

34
What is God calling me to? Your past could be key to your future

In fact, my first three years in school were marked by vocational uncertainty. I could tell you what I didn’t believe God’s call on my life entailed, but I couldn’t tell you what it did mean. I was certain I wasn’t called to be a pastor. I thought maybe it was to some sort of educational ministry but at that time my understanding of such a thing was limited to the educational minister that I had observed in our most recent church home. That sense of calling, however, wasn’t out of conviction. It was out of default. I just didn’t know what else was out there. As I learned more, I began to question more. What is it that God’s called me to do?

35
If Richard Dawkins Is Right

Luke: There’s no need to worry about that. We could invent a story about a synagogue ruler’s terminally ill daughter being healed, give the synagogue ruler a name, set it all in a particular place, and still no one—absolutely no one, not even the people living in that place—would trouble to fact-check. Everyone would simply swallow the story whole!

Three Ways Christians Can Be Like Jesus Amidst a More Polarized Culture

We need a renaissance of evangelism that grows from relationships. We need a renewed passion for evangelization in our churches that is currently lacking. The world is going to know we're different by our positions; they should know we are different by our actions. Let's tell them why we're different, and live the kinds of lives that give us credibility. Perhaps part of the reason we're known by our disagreement is that we're not working hard enough to by known by our love.

Why Pakistan’s Christians Want Muslims to Stop Calling Them 'People of Jesus'

“Why can’t we Muslims just call the Christians by the word they think is more respectable for them?” said Bargad executive director Sabiha Shaheen. “Today we are sowing a seed for social harmony and change. … All students have taken an oath to share this message with 100 other people. Though there is a law in place to outlaw name-calling, as responsible citizens we need to take a step towards this change.”

3 Things You Can Do to Encourage Apologetics in Your Church | Hope's Reason

One thing I started doing last year, was that I noticed the ‘Apologetics’ in our church was very thin (and mostly were outdated too). I began donating once a week my weekly ‘tithe’ in good updated apologetics books. The church librarian knows what I am doing and what I am trying to achieve (I plan to start up an apologetics training class during our mid-week class sessions at the church). The American evangelical church is woefully inadequate in its training for defending its faith, so this is my little part to help correct that.

Three Ways The Church Can Better Serve Special Needs Families

Each of these ministry opportunities demonstrates compassion and addresses a particular individual need. However, while disability affects one family member it impacts the whole family. There is mother and father who may not have been out on a date for some time because they do not know who to entrust with the care of their child. There may be a sibling whose adolescent apprehensions also include concerns for a brother or sister with a disability. Perhaps they even find themselves as the designated caregiver at times when they simply what to hang out with their own friends. An accessible church will consider how they can address the needs of the family as well as the needs of the disabled individual.

40 An R&B Singer Is Accusing Taylor Swift of Stealing Lyrics for ‘Shake It Off’

He claims to have inspired the song, but Jesse Graham just can’t follow its advice. The R&B artist, whose real name is Jesse Braham, says Taylor Swift stole his lyrics for her massive 2014 hit, “Shake It Off.” He claims the pop star tooks the phrases "haters gone hate" and "playas gone play" from his song “Haters Gone Hate,” which he released in 2013. He told the New York Daily News: "Her hook is the same hook as mine. If I didn't write the song ‘Haters Gone Hate,’ there wouldn't be a song called ‘Shake It Off,’" At first, Graham just wanted a co-writer credit from Swift's record labels—oh and a picture with Swift, of course. But after the label didn’t grant his requests, Graham is now filing a $42-million lawsuit. And, we’re told, he still wants his picture.

How Not to Pursue God

“If you turn back your foot from the Sabbath, from doing your pleasure on my holy day, and call the Sabbath a delight and the holy day of the Lord honorable; if you honor it, not going your own ways, or seeking your own pleasure, or talking idly; then you shall take delight in the Lord, and I will make you ride on the heights of the earth.”

42 JK Rowling Has Another Children’s Book in the Works

She said she is also planning on working on another detective novel under her pen name, Robert Galbraith. And she explained that the future of the Harry Potter franchise might not be in the form of a novel (she produced a play that will run in London.) "I always said, I'm not going to say 'Never' [to another Potter story] because there were things I had in my head," she said. "I personally had no particular desire to write it as a novel for reasons that I think will become clear when people see the play.”

43 Key and Peele Are Working on an Animated Movie About a Demon-Fighting Nun

Well this seems like an interesting creative decision. The duo behind the hit Comedy Central show Key and Peele are working on a new project that’s a bit of a departure from their sketch comedy high-jinks. According to Variety , Jordan Peele and Keegan-Michael Key have teamed with the stop animation guru Henry Selick—the man who help bring films like The Nightmare Before Christmas and Coraline to life—for a comedy about spiritual warfare. Selick explained to the outlet, “ Wendell and Wild is a comedy about two scheming demon brothers who must face their arch-nemesis, the demon-dusting nun Sister Helly, and her two acolytes, the goth teens Kat and Raou,”adding that supernatural tales were what “caught and held my attention as a kid. According to Key and Peele’s management, “It is not set up yet with a buyer, but the entire team is passionate about the direction.” The duo ended their Comedy Central show this fall after five seasons.

44 Missouri Man Goes Directly to Jail, and Doesn't Even Collect $200

During the 7th Annual Stone County OACAC Monopoly Tournament , a Missouri man proved it is possible to take the board game way too seriously. After being asked not to participate after a bout of “unsportsmanlike conduct,” 69-year-old John Litton grew outraged, and he now faces five counts of assault in the third degree. Dramatic yes—but after failing to build a hotel on Park Place, who can really blame him?

45 Women Make Up Half of Canada's New Executive Cabinet

Last month, Justin Trudeau beat out incumbent Stephen Harper to become Canada’s next prime minister. During his campaign, Trudeau promised a gender-equal Cabinet, and he made good on his word when he was sworn in, revealing a Cabinet made up of 15 men and 15 women. It’s a striking move in a world where the top government positions in most countries are still held by men. (Only 25 percent of the seats in the current U.S. Cabinet are held by women.)

46 ISIS Destroys Palmyra Columns By Tying People to Them and Blowing Them Up

Terrorists from the radical Islamic group ISIS have destroyed parts of Syria’s historic Palmyra Columns by tying three people to them, and then blowing them up . It is not clear yet what led to the gruesome executions, though ISIS is known for publicly murdering individuals who do not adhere to their radical ideology. The 2,000 year columns ( pictured here ), which were once part of an elaborate Roman aqueduct, are a UNESCO world heritage site, and have largely been considered one of the great architectural landmarks of the ancient world. ISIS has taken over large swaths of Syria and parts of Iraq, frequently using elaborate forms of public executions to garner international attention.

Church, Stop Doing so Many Good Things |

In most church situations you will do more by doing less. That is, once the strategy to walk more faithfully in line with the gospel at a given time in the life of a church is clear, those priorities should focus and reshape everything you do congregationally. All that you do should be consistently evaluated for how it is strategically leading toward the goal. The trauma of changing the focus of a congregation by removing ministries and tactics in which the church has previously engaged is lessened by clear vision and strategic focus, and it replaces the former with a new way to serve and contribute. The purpose of shrinking the number of things a congregation does is to expand that focus and excellence of what it chooses to pursue as a community of faith.

Christian author’s ‘marriage fight’ vow gets LGBT attention

In response, Marr, who says he “is usually found with a game controller in one hand and a smartphone in the other,” wrote, “Despite five Supreme Court justices arguing otherwise, conservatives are still unwilling to accept that same-sex marriage is now legal and supported by a majority of Americans.”

Ligonier Ministries

Dr. Sproul follows up on the concept of evil by explaining the difference between sin and evil. We are warned against a life driven by "fleshly" ambition, but in contrast to have a life imitating Christ. The difference between natural and moral evil is investigated. This lesson is concluded with an emphasis on vengance and revenge and that is should be by God.

Spiritual Warfare: What You Didn't Hear at Bible Study - Apologetics Guy

A lot. As a former missionary, I’ve seen the role apologetics plays on the mission field first-hand. But even if you’ve never been overseas, you’ve probably seen it while talking to your skeptical friends right here at home. Nowadays, most Christians feel like if they get an immediate response while sharing their faith, it’s often full of challenges and tough questions.
