The Priest and Imam From that Amazon Ad Are Now Actual Friends

You’ve probably seen the latest ad from Amazon featuring the friendship between priest and an imam. In the spot, they both buy each other knees pads from Amazon, so that they can both pray without knee pain. Al Jazeera tracked down the actual priest and imam from the commercial, and found out that even though they met for the first time on the set of the commercial, they have since become close friends. As the priest explains, “Really big change in the world starts from small changes. And we have made friends and that’s a friendship that will never die.” You can see the full interview below.

3 Researchers Have Found the Oldest Known Manuscript of Leviticus - Jonathan Morrow

H ow do we know that the Bible we read today is what was originally written? Has the text been corrupted? A recent discovery along with significant advances in imaging technology reveal the earliest known fragment of Leviticus (1:3). Here’s a short video explaining how this works.

Rapid Response: “Evil Disproves the Existence of God” | Cold Case Christianity

There’s a problem with this question, however. We would have to know as much as God to understand why God would allow any evil. How would we ever know all the reasons why God might allow evil to exist? In any horrific crime I’ve worked as a detective, if someone were to ask, ‘Why did that happen?’ the answer is always going to involve a variety of hidden factors working together. It’s always a combination of unique (and often unlikely) relationships between events, opportunities, and conditions. In a similar way, there are always a variety of factors we must consider when asking why God would allow any act of evil in the world. At the very least, we must try to understand the role eternity plays, the importance of free agency, the definition of love, the impact evil has in developing our character or drawing us to God, the role justice plays, and the difficulty we should expect in trying to understand how these factors interact. These complex factors must be considered before we render a verdict about God’s existence and involvement. It’s a difficult task, to be sure.

How John Loftus’s The Christian Delusion Fails: Part One - Thinking Christian

I think I am very close to concluding that this whole “New Atheism” movement is only a passing fad—not the cultural watershed its purveyors imagine it to be, but simply one of those occasional and inexplicable marketing vogues that inevitably go the way of pet rocks, disco, prime-time soaps, and The Bridges of Madison County. This is not because I necessarily think the current “marketplace of ideas” particularly good at sorting out wise arguments from foolish. But the latest trend in à la mode godlessness, it seems to me, has by now proved itself to be so intellectually and morally trivial that it has to be classified as just a form of light entertainment, and popular culture always tires of its diversions sooner or later and moves on to other, equally ephemeral toys.

The Untapped Tool for Christian Apologetics

A few years ago I was flying to San Francisco from my home in Honolulu. As I waited to board, I noticed many larger-than-average men getting on the plane. When I looked a little closer, I recognized a few familiar faces. On my left was Eddie Lacy of the Green Bay Packers. Behind me, I saw Terrell Suggs of the Baltimore Ravens. I saw Alex Smith, quarterback for the Kansas City Chiefs. There were other faces I couldn’t place, but I was confident they were NFL players. The odds of that many NFL stars ending up on the same flight from Honolulu to San Francisco would be incredibly low.

Don’t Believe in Yourself

If we allow pride to live freely in us, it can only kill us. Its prime objective is not to make us feel better about ourselves, but to send us to everlasting pain and punishment away from God. Solomon warns us, “Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall” (Proverbs 16:18). Isaiah brings that terrifying warning into higher definition: “The Lord of hosts has a day against all that is proud and lofty, against all that is lifted up — and it shall be brought low” (Isaiah 2:12).

Isn’t Christianity a myth?

“It is remarkable that such ideas should arise from a study of the behavior or the most elementary systems. That such systems point to a world beyond themselves is a fact that will be loved by all who believe that there are truths of which we know little, that there are mysteries seen only by mystics, and that there are phenomena inexplicable within our normal view of what is possible. There is no harm in this—physics indeed points to the unknown. The emphasis, however, must be on the unknown, on the mystery, on the truths dimly glimpsed, on the things inexpressible except in the language of poetry, or religion, or metaphor.”

What’s the Relationship Between Evangelism and Apologetics?

“People mistake apologetics for evangelism. Like the activities we’ve considered above, apologetics itself is a good thing. We are instructed by Peter to be ready to give a reason for the hope that we have (1 Pet. 3:15). And apologetics is doing exactly that. Apologetics is answering questions and objections people may have about God or Christ, or about the Bible or the message of the gospel. Apologists for Christianity argue for its truth. They maintain that Christianity better explains that sense of longing that all people seem to have. Christianity better explains human rationality. It fits better with order. They may argue (as C. S. Lewis does in Mere Christianity) that it better fits with the moral sense that people

What Do I Have to Do Before I Can Call Myself a Christian “Apologist”? | Cold Case Christianity

When I was a pastor, I embraced the difficult mission of equipping my congregants to do the work of ministry and to become good Christian Case Makers. Many of us think of pastors and church leaders as the people who are supposed to have all the answers and we sometimes defer our Christian responsibilities to those we see in positions of leadership or notoriety. We can also do this with well-known apologists and Christians thinkers; it’s easy to concede our Case Making responsibility to others. But, if you’re a Christian, you’re already a Christian Case Maker. You’re either a good one or a poor one; a well-equipped ambassador or an unprepared citizen of the Kingdom. It’s time to identify yourself as an apologist, train yourself to make the case and begin to reach the world for Christ from wherever you may be.

BuzzFeed’s hit piece on Chip and Joanna Gaines is dangerous

But the same polls tell us that nearly 4 out of 10 Americans — no small number! — are not on board with it. The minds at BuzzFeed are not naive: They know that the Gaineses and HGTV are going to have to come out with a public statement on same-sex marriage. They also know that if the statement is not 100 percent supportive of same-sex marriage, the network will be pressured to drop them.

Jessica searched for help for her porn addiction. What she found disturbed her.

Men will come forward when it starts to possibly threaten their relationship or maybe their wife catches them,” Harris told me. “They might just come forward because they’re tired of dealing with it or because they want to talk about it whereas women will go the other way. They will work super hard to protect this because it’s so shameful and so much a part of who they are. At the same time, they’re trying to untangle it, trying to figure out how to separate themselves from it. They will almost actually create another persona of this perfect woman who has it all together and they will push really hard to be her. I have women write to me who are pastors’ wives, missionaries, they’re worship leaders, they’re nuns. These are women who are pushing hard to look like they have it all together and try to almost convince themselves that, ‘No you don’t have to be like that woman in the video. You are worth something. You don’t have to be like that.’ So they almost live this double life that they’re trying to navigate between.

Do You Really Have a 'God-Shaped Hole' in Your Heart?

While I agree that we are made for relationship with others, community and God...I think that the article misses the point with this phrase. I happen to believe that any relationship or sense of community or feelings that come from stuff is not sufficient for our lives. The God shaped hole has to be filled before any of these other aspects will bring comfort to our individual lives. This is what I believe the cliche really points to. While I am sure that there have been some communicators or well meaning people that have misused cliche it does not mean their are not some valuable truths to some of them. Just a thought...again I agree with the sentiment of the article I just wonder if we are sometimes looking for things to be critical about.

Is Loving Others Without Loving Yourself First Even Possible?

As Christians, we need to be careful about confusing compassion with martyrdom.

Are There Early Eyewitness Accounts of the Life of Jesus? (Podcast) | Cold Case Christianity

In this blast from the past, J. Warner discusses the dating of the Gospels. Critics often claim that Jesus never really lived and that the Gospels were written centuries after his “supposed” life. These same critics claim that the Gospels are mythologies that appear late in history rather than eyewitness testimonies that first appeared within the lifetimes of eyewitnesses. Did the Gospels appear early enough to have been written by eyewitnesses? In this podcast, J. Warner examines the textual and historical evidence for the dating of the Gospels to establish whether we should trust what they say about Jesus.

The Cell's Design: How Chemistry Reveals the Creator's Artistry: Fazale ''Fuz'' Rana

 Cutting-edge techniques have revealed startling features inside the cell that force only one reasonable conclusion—a supernatural Agent must be responsible for life. In The Cell’s Design: How Chemistry Reveals the Creator’s Artistry , biochemist Fazale Rana, PhD, uses a common scientific method based on pattern recognition to identify the God of the Bible as the Creator. Dr. Rana says "this approach inherently depends on what science currently knows about life's chemistry and how the organization of biochemical systems relates to the characteristics of humanly designed systems—not on what science doesn't know." Going far beyond irreducible complexity, Rana shows how the molecular features of the cell—some of the smallest structures in nature—manifest the same characteristics displayed in human designs. This similarity points to a resonance between the mind of man and the mind of God. Molecular motors, information properties, chicken-and-egg systems, and quality-control checkpoints are only a few of more than a dozen remarkable indicators for design explained in The Cell's Design .

Christian Women Don’t Always Submit

Does any of this sound familiar? We compel ourselves to wear certain styles, even painful shoes, to keep up with what the stores have told us is fashionable. We clean our homes in a particular way with only particular products. We follow every rule and suggestion given to us by the ubiquitous “they” on how to parent our children and keep them safe from every wisp of risk. We stress and strain our muscles, three times a week minimum, because we believe it’s the “right” thing to do and maybe, just maybe, we’ll keep death at bay (or at least have a flat stomach until it comes for us). We’re religious about the kind of candle that can burn in our houses, and the smell of essential oils floats through the air whenever we’re around because we’re convinced they’re the “right” remedy to use.

The New Testament was originally written in Greek. But some skeptics say this shows many New Testament books must have been forged–that the people who wrote them probably weren’t Jesus’ disciples.

Since Jesus’ disciples spoke Aramaic, how could these guys write any New Testament books, in Greek, if they couldn’t even read or write in their own language?

Freedom of Conscience on Hacksaw Ridge: A Story for Our Times

Freedom of Conscience on Hacksaw Ridge: A Story for Our Times By Eric Metaxas At the height of World War II, there was room in America for conscientious objectors. Where are we now? It was the great cataclysm of the twentieth century—World War II. America was fighting for its life. Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan, totalitarian nightmares bent on world conquest, had to be defeated. Millions of Americans took up arms, willing to sacrifice their lives. And now there’s an amazing, powerful film about one man who was willing to give his life, but whose conscience and deeply held religious beliefs would not allow him to take the lives of others. Mel Gibson’s new movie, “Hacksaw Ridge,” tells the story of Desmond Doss, a Seventh Day Adventist from the hills of Virginia, who enlisted in the Army with the understanding he could serve as a medic—and therefore not violate his firm belief in “thou shalt not kill.” But when Doss arrived at Fort Jackson, South Carolina, he was in for a rude surprise. His sergeant, his captain, and the judge at the subsequent military hearing didn’t seem to care much for Doss’s convictions.

Which Old-Testament Promises Apply to Me?

Now here is the second step. The coming of Jesus, the Messiah, into the world and his atoning work on the cross and his resurrection and his reign in heaven and his authoritative teaching — like in the Sermon on the Mount in Matthew 5–7 — all of that together alter the way some of the promises and the teachings of the Old Testament are to be inherited and applied. In other words, when step one says that we are heirs of all the promises, we have to take into account that those promises may be fulfilled differently today because of the changes that have come into history through the words and the work of Jesus.
