Engaging Muslims Part 2: Five Common Objections - NAMB

This post gives a brief overview of five of the most common objections to Christianity that we hear from our Muslim friends. Though I cannot give an exhaustive treatment of these topics, I do want to offer some Bible passages to provide natural access points through which to invite our Muslim friends into a deeper engagement with the Christian message in the Bible.

Has God Given Enough Evidence for Rational Faith?

As a college student, I explored significant doubts I had about my faith. It bothered me that God didn’t make His existence more obvious. In fact, one skeptic made me wonder: Why doesn’t God write “Jesus Saves” on the moon or “Made by God” on each cell?

Fantastic New Apologetics Resource for Families: Cold-Case Christianity for Kids!

Cold-Case Christianity for Kids: Investigate Jesus with a Real Detective is written for 8- to 12-year-olds and corresponds to the chapter sequence of the adult version of the book, so parents and kids can study together (I love that!). Even though 8 to 12 is the target age range, you can absolutely use this with 6- or 7-year-olds if you’re working through it with them and helping them understand the concepts. My 7-year-old son was so engaged by it that he read the first 60 pages in two days after receiving it.

Is Football Too Violent for Christians?

The intensity of football is one of the main reasons it is so fun and formative, and the potential danger is why it is so intense. All those collisions do take a physical toll, and I think it is wise to improve the rules and equipment so it cuts down on injuries. But football is a violent game, and although injury is an unavoidable part of it, injury is not the goal (this cannot be said of professional boxing, where causing a brain contusion is the supreme goal). For thousands and thousands of young men like me, football taught us to be better men, and even to be better Christians. Like climbing Mount Everest, I think it’s worth the risk.

Love to Forget Yourself: How Singing Weakens Pride

Being awed at the majesty of God swallows up self-absorption. As John Piper has said, no one walks away from the Grand Canyon with a bigger view of himself. It was this insight — that life isn’t about me — that I found so liberating when I read Don’t Waste Your Life in college. It was a Copernican revolution in my soul. With the glory of God at the center, I began learning what life was for and how it was to be lived. When we sing to God about his glory, we see more of how gloriously big he really is, and we become joyfully small again.

The Case for the Pre-Existence of Christ: The Birthday that was Not the Beginning

Recently, we celebrated my wife’s birthday. As we reach a certain age, we remember the date, but the year begins to become foggy (intentionally, of course). When one celebrates a person’s birthday, the person’s life is being celebrated. The birthday celebration acknowledges the importance of the person’s existence. A person’s birth represents the person’s beginning of existence (also included are the nine months prior in the womb as this writer believes that life begins at conception). So, when we celebrate my wife’s birth, we celebrate her existence and the blessings we have in knowing her.

Was There an Exodus & Conquest? - Cross Examined - Christian Apologetic Ministry | Frank Turek | Christian Apologetics | Christian Apologetics Speakers

Greg, Archaeology can only be supportive to faith. It is vane to seek such a proof in science, especially extraordinary proof. Some things can be proved through science, some things can be proved through witnesses. The Apostles were witnesses of resurrection of Christ. There is not any chemical reaction to repeat at home, in order to prove such a claim. The only way to believe in their claim two thousand years after, is to see Resurrected Christ yourself. Why not? Do I have any chance at all, if I declare myself an atheist or a skeptic? In fact, if I want to have an appointment with Him, I must cover half of the distance, to the place of the appointment, no matter what I declare. The other half is for Him to cover. Until the age of 23 I was an atheist. At that age I went on mount Athos for mountaineering. Because I was boring in the monasteries, I asked for a priest to confess my sins, but my real purpose was to attack to him with my rational arguments to his religious beliefs. But when I met him, I decided to respect him instead, and make an experiment. I decided to confess my sins, in order to see myself if anything will ever change in my life.

May I Split My Giving Between My Church and Another Ministry?

So I think it is a good rule of thumb. Hear those words. I think it is a good rule of thumb to start your giving by tithing to the local church and then giving over and above elsewhere. But that is not a rule or a mandate. I can’t say, “Thus saith the Lord.” It is not a requirement. It simply may be a helpful guideline. And, of course, I know there are wealthy people who can’t begin to tithe to their local church because their tithe would be bigger than the church’s budget. And so there are obviously exceptions like that. But I prefer to put all the emphasis on: Let’s be lavish in our generosity. Let’s be sacrificial in our giving. Let’s be loyal to our local church. And let’s be farseeing in our support for many ministries. I think God will handle the percentages.

Women Teaching Men — How Far Is Too Far?

An externally focused, rule-based approach to women teaching co-ed audiences in the church neither reflects nor honors the beauty of God’s design. God wants us to have a grace-soaked, joyous spirit that delights in honoring headship as a beautiful aspect of his good and wise plan — one that respects and engages men and women as joint-heirs and co-workers who wholeheartedly exercise their gifts together in the service of each other and the advance of the gospel. God is far more concerned that we have the right heart and spirit than that we fall in line with man-made flashpoints.

Top 5 rookie pastor mistakes — Southern Equip

Though it may seem counterintuitive, the best strategy for any pastor assuming a new ministry is to lower expectations of the church but raise expectations of himself. In other words, instead of having a list of things the church must do, he should have a list of actions he must take. His efforts should focus on preaching well, loving his people, winning the lost, visiting people in their jobs and homes, and inviting members into his. People will more readily follow a man who works hard and loves them. There is no shortcut to credibility, but there is a direct route.

Are Comfortable Christians Compromisers?

However, my answer is that he should find in Scripture a theology of contentment in comfort, as well as contentment in pain. Yes, yes, yes. He should. And if he hasn’t found it, which it doesn’t sound like he has, he should pursue it, and I will try to give a little guideline here. That is exactly what Paul said in Philippians 4:11–12, “Not that I am speaking of being in need, for I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content. I know how to be brought low, and I know how to abound.” That would be Noah’s concern: “Can I be okay feeling comfortable?” So go to school here, right? “In any and every circumstance, I have learned the secret of facing plenty and hunger, abundance and need. I can do all things [both of those] through him who strengthens me” (Philippians 4:12–13).

32
God Demonstrates His Love Toward Us

What do I mean by “manifestly” present? For Christians, isn’t the love of God always present with us? Romans 8:35 and 39 say that nothing can separate us from the love of God. So if nothing can separate us from the love of God, why does Paul pray, “The love of God be with you”? The reason is because, even though the love of God is always present with believers, we do not always experience the love of God as present. Therefore, we want God to make his love more manifestly known. More obviously. More experientially. Therefore, I think what Paul is really calling for in 2 Corinthians 13:14 is that the love of God be poured out more fully and more consciously in our hearts.

In fact, some of these questions can’t even be answered by Christians!” Here is a conversational example of how I recently responded to this statement:

Hugh Ross: Naturalistic Origin of Life Strangled by Young Universe

"As astronomical advances proved the universe to be some 10 to 15 billions years old a majority of both scientists and Christians mistakenly assumed that billions of years allowed ample time for a naturalistic account of life. This error has been costly. Recent scholarship increasingly reveals that time boundaries as brief as only several billions years constrict evolutionary theory so tightly, particularly concerning life's origin, as to strangle it. In other words, a 14-billion-year-old universe is too young for any conceivable natural-process scenario to yield on its own, even the simplest living organism."

Are Bad Words Inherently Evil?

The list of bad words will change with time. In this world, the sin of humans will not change. Therefore, rather than focusing on the words, let us focus on the reason and purpose for why we are saying things. I do believe that avoiding the commonly known “bad” words is important so that we may avoid being a stumbling block to fellow believers. However, this is only a small subset of what we should be doing. Are we saying things for the purpose of edifying and encouraging others? Or are we saying things out of anger and spite?

Christ in the Old Testament – Tom Schreiner

Israel was called to be God’s obedient son (Exod 4:22-23). Just as Adam was called to be God’s son who trusted and obeyed him, so too was Israel. But Israel, like Adam, failed to carry out God’s instructions. Things got so bad that both Israel (722 B.C.) and Judah (586 B.C.) were sent into exile. The prophets denounced Israel and Judah for their sin, threatening judgment if they did not repent and turn to the Lord. When the people failed to turn, the exile, which Moses saw long beforehand (cf. Deut 27-32), became a reality. But the prophets assured the people that exile was not the last word. God would restore His people. Just as the Lord liberated His people from Egypt, there would be a second exodus. A new David would come, and God would make a new covenant with His people and pour out His Spirit on them. Then the promised new creation would come. The victory over the serpent promised in Genesis 3:15 would become a reality in a most unusual way. The Servant of the Lord, the true Israel, would liberate His people from exile by forgiving their sins, by taking the punishment they deserved upon Himself.
