Here’s a Teaser for the Tom Cruise ‘Mummy’ Reboot that Literally No One Asked For

A first look at the new Mummy movie—a reboot to a franchise many forgot existed and ceased caring about in the late '90s—has been released. The movie stars Tom Cruise, and thanks to this 15-second clip, we know that it will contain a lot of Tom Cruise stuff like dramatically running and explosions and stuff. Here’s the teaser that no one asked for, but we’re all getting.

C.J. Mahaney Interviews John Piper

Here’s the way it worked when I was halfway through my first year in seminary. I got real antsy because I was doing zero ministry. I went to John McClure at Lake Avenue Church where Ray Ortlund senior was the pastor and said to John McClure, “I need a job. I’ll do anything you want me to do in youth ministry.” That’s all I felt worthy or confident to do he said, “We need a seventh grade teacher.” I said, “I’m in.” For a year, I worked my tail off on Saturday afternoon for about four hours preparing lessons for seventh graders. The next year, they said the ninth graders need a teacher, so it felt like an upgrade for me — I skipped a grade. I did the same. I worked really hard and you know what happened next? The Galilean Sunday school class — that class still exists today at Lake Avenue forty years later. The Galilean young adults came and they said, “Would you teach our class?” And I said yes .

Your Church Needs to Hear You Sing

Since one of the main purposes of corporate singing is to build others up, music gives us a wonderful opportunity to “count others more significant than yourselves” (Philippians 2:3). If the words are true, excellent, and beautiful, try to engage with every song, even if it’s not your favorite genre. You might just find that the joy you see on others’ faces helps you appreciate the song for its ability to edify people who have different tastes than you.

If Your Right Hand Causes You to Sin (Ten Reflections on Masturbation)

“You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall not commit adultery.’ But I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lustful intent has already committed adultery with her in his heart. If your right eye causes you to sin, tear it out and throw it away. For it is better that you lose one of your members than that your whole body be thrown into hell. And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away. For it is better that you lose one of your members than that your whole body go into hell.” (Matthew 5:27–30)

Marriage Advice | Reasonable Faith

3. Confront problems honestly. When we meet a young married couple, Jan will sometimes shock them by commenting, "Well, we hope you're fighting a lot!" (They usually are.) Fighting with your spouse is so emotionally wrenching and painful, and yet it is the necessary means by which problems get resolved and you become one. The couple that is in real danger is not the one that is fighting but the one that is not confronting. In order to avoid the pain, it's easier to sweep things under the rug and try to forget about it. But then the problems do not get resolved, and bitterness and resentment can secretly begin to grow until the marriage becomes poisoned. Don't let this happen. Screw up your courage, resolve to bear the hurt, and confront your issues squarely. Now please understand that when I talk about "fighting," I'm not talking about physical violence and abuse. I mean arguing. And when you argue, you should exercise self-control so that you fight fairly. Never call your spouse names or say things designed to wound, things that you will later regret. That is inconsistent with love.

Stop Living a Half-Life with God

Brothers and sisters, could it be that many of the problems and struggles in your life today are owing to the fact that you never knew how you got saved. And therefore you have never known Christ. You lived a half life with God. You thought it was half yours and half his. And this morning maybe all of the sudden you can wake up to what he did for you so that you could start loving him with an appropriate affection, so that you could be humbled to the dust. Could it be that this would be the day you would be awakened to life because you heard the gospel for the first time in its power that it was God who slammed to the bottom at the cost of his Son’s life and pulled you up — and not just heaved you an inner tube or waited for your self-determined flailings to get you onto the boat?

4 Suggestions for Post-Election Listening

I have a different concern now that the election is over, since high emotional responses are manifesting themselves in the forms of protests. It seems evangelicals, as a whole, are missing opportunities for meaningful, Christ-honoring, charitable dialogue over philosophical disagreements—dialogue that could unite church members who hold different views rather than allow believers to settle into comfortable but unstated division. I am concerned especially for campuses training future ministry leaders and for congregations that have made strides toward becoming ethnically integrated in membership—even if such congregations, at this point in their journey, are diverse or multicultural in attendance only.

17 How Does the Holy Spirit Relate to Evidence for Christianity?by Gary R. Habermas

It is often assumed that the Holy Spirit's witness to a believer is not very helpful in a study of apologetics. After all, this testimony is given only to Christians and it is not verified or falsified by evidences. So does it follow that this witness is no more than a subjective conviction?

Gays, bias and phony science

Two years ago, these stories were hard to ignore when Columbia professor Mark Hatzenbuehler found that gays and lesbians who faced prejudice in their communities had a life expectancy 12 years shorter than those who lived in more accepting areas. Just so we’re clear, that’s bigger than the lifespan gap between regular smokers and nonsmokers.

Is the Christian Faith Evidentially Reasonable?

Richard Dawkins, the famous evolutionary biologist, author and avid atheist, once said, “Faith is the great cop-out, the great excuse to evade the need to think and evaluate evidence. Faith is belief in spite of, even perhaps because of, the lack of evidence.” Is that true? Does Christianity call us to scorn or reject reason and evidence in an effort to have a faith that pleases God? Here at PleaseConvinceMe.com , we’re making every effort to demonstrate the relationship between faith, reason and evidence. Our site is filled with evidence that demonstrates the truth of Christianity, because the Christian faith is grounded in reason and evidence.

The Most Damaging Attitude in Our Churches

disagree. My spiritual life and relationship with God has been most harmed by being in churches that I was not critical enough about. I would "focus on the good" and remain in harmful situations, I would respect the church to the point of blindly agreeing with everything people said and did. And as a result, I drifted further from God. I did not know him and I reflected a false image of him to non Christians. I have not truly begun to know him until I developed an attitude of cynicism, which allowed me to leave unhealthy churches and join a church that helps rather than hinders my faith.

23
God, Naturalism, and the Meaning to Life

Some atheist philosophers propose that while there is no meaning to life there may be meaning in life by the choices people make. A test of this claim comes by examining the human need for meaning and what the secular worldview of naturalism (the metaphysical view that nature is the sole reality) offers to meet this need.

24
Can You Be Content in a Culture of 'Never Enough'?

The path isn’t easy. Discontentment is a long-used blueprint for Satan. You could argue it is the original sin. In the garden, God gives Adam and Eve everything, except one tree. Rather than resting in what they have (eternal communion with God and creation), Satan comes along, and instead they focus on the one thing they lack. What I’m trying to say is Satan knows the power of lack.

How Can We Answer the Challenge of Pain and Suffering?

The economy is in tough shape. The culture seems to be more and more hostile to Christianity. Many regions of the world appear to be on the brink of war with growing turmoil in North Korea, Syria and Iran. Some of our friends are ill or suffering loss. How are we, as Christians, to respond to the pain and suffering we see all around us? Many skeptics point to this suffering as an evidence that God does not exist. If there is an all-powerful and all-loving God, why would he allow His children to suffer so? This objection is perhaps the most common complaint that non-believers level at Christians, and PleaseConvinceMe.com would like to offer a few thoughts to help you respond to the challenge. Along the way, we also hope to stimulate your own thinking as you try to make sense of a world where God seems to allow significant suffering.

Who Were Cavemen?

As far as stereotypes go, cavemen make easy targets—especially when transplanted into the twenty-first century. Their brutish way of dealing with contemporary situations earns a laugh on commercials and TV shows. They just don’t understand us modern humans, and their misunderstanding strikes humor gold. But when we cut away the laugh track and the bumbling ways, we’re left with something of an enigmatic figure—a being without a settled place in our understanding of history. Perhaps, in fact, it’s our discomfort with not knowing what to do with cavemen that makes us laugh. So, just who were they?

Have We Lost the Message of the New Testament?

Maybe you’ve got a friend or a co-worker who tends to be pretty skeptical of the Bible right from the get-go. For many like them, the issues surrounding the Bible can make it tough to read it for themselves and give it a fair hearing. For example, people who saw Bart Ehrman on the Cobert Report or read his books might come away doubting that the text of the New Testament is still intact after all these years.

32
Do Objective Moral Truths Exist in Reality?

Yes, I’ve read your post several times. And I still see this as a sleight of hand. You’re not bringing anything new to the table here. It’s the same old argument. “Objective moral values and duties exist because otherwise OH THE HORROR! YOU CAN’T SAY ANYTHING IS BAD OR GOOD!” You make up a staw universe in which the basic concept of “better or worse” can’t exist because there isn’t a god. A person wants a drink from a stream. They try to dip water out with two things, a flat rock and their cupped hands. They decide that their cupped hands work better than a flat rock and apply the label good to using cupped hands to drink water from a stream. Is it such a hard idea to grasp and extend to other scenarios? Who would be “hard-pressed” to see how notions of better or worse came to be? How would that have no basis in reality? The fact of the matter is that you can’t explain that objective moral values exist without explaning how you know that they do. This is a garbage debate tactic. “They exist, and I do

Historic Christianity’s “Two Books” of Revelation

What comes to mind with the word, “revelation”? Likely, it’s the last book of the Bible, but in historic Christian theology, revelation refers to God’s personal self-disclosure to his creatures. God took the initiative to reveal himself in two ways: through general revelation (the knowledge of God that comes via the created order), and special revelation (the knowledge of God that comes via redemptive history). Christian theologians sometimes call this dual view of revelation the “two-books theory.” God is the author of both the figurative book of nature (God’s world) and the literal book of Scripture (God’s written Word).

Death Is Not Good

In fact, if death, disease, and extinction really did occur for millions of years, then the “very good” creation of Genesis 1 was considerably worse than the world we now inhabit. The Curse should actually be viewed as a blessing, since the earth has not seen 65–90 percent of all species go extinct since Adam sinned. In this scenario, the post-Fall world is more creature-friendly than the “very good” pre-Fall world! So to what state will Jesus “restore” the “groaning” creation in the future?

The taxi turns into a dense traffic jam: a mile-long jumble of buses, motorcycles, ...

Love Is Never a Waste

Because God’s love toward us is (a) freely bestowed despite our sin being worthy of eternal punishment, and (b) relentlessly patient in its eternal perseverance, we have no Christian right to say to others who have wronged us, even if they continue to wrong us, “You have reached your limit with me. My love for you stops now.” Doing so fails to truly see the depths of our sin in the light of God’s holiness. And if God, who is perfect and holy, will forgive and love we who are most certainly not, on what basis do we have to be unforgiving and unloving to others?

A Dangerous Fairytale for Future Wives

Whether we’re aware of it or not, the battle begins, not ends, when we make our vows. Our sinful desires will immediately rear up like a fire-breathing dragon. Satan will throw his grenade of lies at our feet. We will have to watch our step, lest we set off his explosive land mines hidden in our own homes. Many times it’s our own unrealistic expectations in marriage that blind us from seeing the bullets flying all around us. We must let go of the childish fairytale, and ask God to open our eyes to the spiritual warfare in our marriage, the battle in which we must fight for faith.

7 Things Worth Knowing about Intelligent Design

According to the theory of Intelligent Design , it is possible to infer from empirical evidence that some features of the natural world are best explained by an intelligent cause rather than unguided processes. The “ID movement,” as it is sometimes called, is quiet recent. It originated with the publication of several books between 1984 and 1992 and a small meeting organized by Berkeley law professor Phillip E. Johnson near Monterey, California, in 1993.

The Denial of the Wrong God

This statement makes a category error. A category error is a semantic or ontological error in which things belonging to a particular category are presented as if they belong to a different category. In other words, for one to say that they do not believe in God BECAUSE they have never seen God, is to deny a god of their own making. It’s the creation of a false god. It’s an averment about a visible god.

Thriving at the Edges of the World

It isn’t comfortable to live with these kinds of tensions, but it is what Jesus did. We need to embrace the example of the frontier in Antioch, heed Jones’ wisdom, and resist the tendency to allow differing mindsets to drive the Church apart. Let us humble our hearts, listen to each other, integrate our thinking, and see what God will do with the result. I am optimistic that the result will be a thriving Church on the edges of a new world!
