Theologian R.C. Sproul on Christmas

"I can’t think of anything more pleasing to Christ than the church celebrating His birthday every year. Keep in mind that the whole principle of annual festival and celebration is deeply rooted in ancient Jewish tradition. In the Old Testament, for example, there were times when God emphatically commanded the people to remember certain events with annual celebrations. While the New Testament doesn’t require that we celebrate Christmas every year, I certainly see nothing wrong with the church’s entering into this joyous time of celebrating the Incarnation, which is the dividing point of all human history. Originally, it was intended to honor, not Mithras or any of the other mystery religion cults, but the birth of our King." 1 Courage and Godspeed, Chad Footnote: 1. R.C. Sproul, "Is Christmas a Pagan Holiday?", Dec. 23th, 2016. Related Posts Christmas Resources from GotQuestions.org A Christmas Testimony by Chad Vaughn  Everyone Believes in a Virgin Birth

The Task of Apologetics

Exodus 3 narrates the well-known account of God’s revealing Himself to Moses in the burning bush and commissioning him to tell Pharaoh to release the Israelites from slavery in Egypt. But that was only part of Moses’ mission. The other task to which the Lord called Moses was to address the Israelites. He was to command the Israelites in the name of God to engage in the largest strike in history. In absolute defiance of the power and authority of Pharaoh, they were to leave Egypt and go out to the desert to worship God at His mountain. And, of course, these events ended in the exodus.

Abbreviated Christianity and Christian Case Making

At some point in my life about 18 years ago, I decided to surrender my presuppositions and follow the evidence where it led. It didn’t happen in a day, but over a period of months as I slowly investigated the claims of the gospel writers. I eventually came to call myself a “Christian”. But the process that brought me into the Christian family of believers, the methodical investigation of the evidence, soon became a part of my life as a believer. It wasn’t long before I found myself sharing what I learned with the people in my world. I retraced my own investigative steps for anyone who would sit still long enough to listen. I think I drove my atheist friends crazy with this behavior; they had known me as a vocal (and rather angry) skeptic for many years. I’m sure I also tested the patience of my wife; the Christian evidences were all I talked about for many years. It wasn’t enough that I was now a Christian after 35 years of unbelief. I was determined to defend what I believed and share the evidence with others. I was becoming a “Christian Case Maker”.

The Doctrine of Scripture for Apologetics, Part 2

The Bible did not fall from heaven as a finished product placed in the hands of men. Neither was it, like the claims of both Mormonism and Islam, translated from golden plates found in a hillside or cave. Rather, God communicated to human authors in various ways, and guided their writing so that what was written was what God wanted to reveal to them. While 2 Timothy 3:16 tells us what Scripture is, the clearest passage that describes this process is found in 2 Peter 1:16-21.

A Letter to Younger Me About Money

Hindsight is indeed twenty-twenty. And it’s not like I now manage money perfectly. Even though I understand more now how to handle money, I don’t always act on my knowledge. But over the last year, I’ve come a long way. And if I can’t help my twenty-year-old self, I hope I can help others avoid the mistakes I made, or help them make changes like I’ve had to make.

Teaching Apologetics to the Next Generation

Before becoming a graduate professor of apologetics last year, I spent a decade teaching apologetics full time to high school students at a Christian school in Southern California. In fact, I still teach one high school Bible class simply because I love it ! I also have the privilege of speaking to thousands of young people each year on all sorts of apologetics-related subjects. There are some lessons I have learned—many the hard way—about how to teach apologetics to young people. I trust these will be helpful and encouraging as you aim to equip and challenge the next generation.

The Reformation and the Visual Arts

This brings us to a final distinction between Protestant and Catholic art in the period. While Catholic churches continued to produce monumental art and elaborate altarpieces, and used a great deal of gold leaf, particularly in frames and sculpture, Protestants preferred smaller, private commissions. There were several reasons. One of the grievances people had against the Catholic Church was its insistence on collecting tithes and then using them for gold, jewels, and elaborate decorative programs in churches. People thought the Catholic Church was getting rich off them. So churches soon stopped commissioning elaborate altarpieces and large-scale art for the churches, even in Lutheran areas.

Why the Followers of Jesus Recognized Him as Divine

Bart Ehrman’s recently published How Jesus Became God attempts to explain how Jesus of Nazareth, who never spoke of Himself in divine terms and whose disciples never thought of their master as anything other than a mere mortal like themselves, came to be regarded as God. Ehrman concludes that it was primarily belief in the resurrection of Jesus that led to the exaltation of Jesus. However, Ehrman doubts that Jesus was resurrected and doubts the stories of the discovery of the empty tomb. To reach the conclusions that he does, Ehrman omits important evidence and draws a number of unwarranted conclusions. The evidence is compelling that Jesus Himself made a number of statements that implied His divine identity and mission. There is also significant evidence that supports the Gospels’ narratives of the discovery of the empty tomb.

In a Radio Debate on Theistic Evolution, Stephen Meyer Meets Deborah Haarsma of BioLogos | Evolution News

What shall I say? The encounter is substantive and interesting. I would not want to be saddled with the responsibility of defending the theistic evolutionary perspective in a debate with Dr. Meyer. Hosted by Julie Roys for Moody Radio, Haarsma does, I think, a creditable job in what is probably an impossible task. She has a difficult time trying to persuade Ms. Roys or the callers to the show. You can tell that from the host’s voice, and at the end, Roys simply opens up and frankly says she doesn’t see much difference between theistic and “deistic” evolution.

U2’s Unfashionably Hopeful Songs of Experience | Think Christian

On the opening track, “Love Is All That We Have Left,” Bono’s vocal is both intimate and artificial. Producer Andy Barlow runs his voice through a vocoder/synth processor, with which the famously imperfect lead vocalist then sings a sort of sad duet. It’s hard not to hear 1 Corinthians 13:13 , making for a stark and powerful introduction to the rest of the album. If, at the end of things, all we have left is faith, hope, and love, then we had better figure out what those things mean. Love is our only hope. It’s a cliche, sure, but like my grandpa’s sayings, that doesn’t mean it’s not true.

Is God Calling Me to Be a Pastor?

Here the desires of the heart meet the brass tacks of the needs of others. Office in the church is not for spiritual self-actualization or merely affirming a man’s spiritual maturity, but it’s for meeting the actual needs of others. The elder qualifications are, in a sense, unremarkable. The elders of the church should not be the sum total of all spiritually qualified men in the church. Rather, from among those who are qualified, the elders are those who are willing to make extra sacrifices (for a season or the long haul) to care for the church and meet her needs. Aspiration has its vital part to play, but the call to pastoral office is not shaped mainly by the internal heart, but by external needs.

We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.

How Jesus Makes a Woman Bold

Christian women, we have nothing to fear and ultimately nothing to lose. We will inherit our glorious hope. We will get Christ. He will reward us for our good works. Let’s not be conformed to the world in its apathy toward the things of God. Let’s live like we have the greatest hope to offer the world. Let’s get uncomfortable by hoping in God and not in what the world offers. Let’s take risks for the sake of the gospel to the glory of God.

We get a slew of questions from listeners from Indiana to India. This one is from a listener named Ruby in Jaipur. “Hello, Pastor John. Thank you for your sermons and for this podcast. I got married recently and here in India, culturally, a woman lives with the husband’s family. What would you say about this in light of the multiple times where the Bible talks about a man leaving his parents to become one with his wife? What does this leaving look like in a marriage where he physically doesn’t leave his parent’s home?”

47 Planned Parenthood under investigation by Justice Department over sale of fetal tissue

Planned Parenthood, at the time, strongly rejected accusations it violated any law or acted unethically. The group also “strongly” disagreed with Grassley’s recommendations to refer the matter to the Justice Department “especially in light of the fact that the investigations by three other Congressional committees, and investigations in 13 states including a Grand Jury in Texas, have all shown that Planned Parenthood did nothing wrong.”

We Do Not Know What God Is Doing

Those who perceived a messianic prophecy in Isaiah 7:14, “Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel” didn’t take it to mean a virgin would miraculously become pregnant with God. They assumed a chaste young bride would conceive the Messiah in the, you know, standard manner. And no one believed “Immanuel” literally meant God would become flesh and dwell among them. God’s ways were much wilder than even his people had imagined.

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.
