Evangelical Leaders support Judge Neil Gorsuch for Supreme Court appointment

As evangelical leaders, there are core social principles at the center of our view of human flourishing. Among the most relevant to the Supreme Court’s jurisdiction are the protection of the unborn, the strengthening of religious liberty, and a dedication to human flourishing — which we believe can only be accomplished by a biblical definition of marriage and family.

3 EQUIP, Christian Articles, Bible Answer Man | CRI

Did Jesus make a crucial historical blunder in the Gospel of Mark? One of the reasons cited by famed New Testament scholar and best-selling author Bart Ehrman for his transition from fundamentalist Christian to fundamentalist agnostic is that the gospel of Mark is riddled with factual and historical errors. A prominent example is that David […]

Your Weakness Is Not Meaningless

If you’re like most people, you don’t feel loved by your limitations. You feel confined, stunted, trapped, and exposed by them. You feel discouraged by how weak you are and how many things you can’t do well or at all. You might even be tempted to resent God for equipping you with what looks like a stingy allotment of abilities.

Trump Reveals 5 Words That 'Touch His Heart' at National Prayer Breakfast

"America will flourish as long as our liberty, in particular our religious liberty, is allowed to flourish. America will succeed as long as our most vulnerable citizens have a path to success and America will thrive as long as we continue to have faith in each other and faith in God," Trump stated. "That faith in God has inspired men and women to sacrifice to the needy, to deploy to wars overseas and to lock arms at home to ensure equal rights for every man, woman and child in our land. It is that faith that sent the pilgrims across the oceans, the pioneers across the plains and the young people all across America to chase their dreams. They are chasing their dreams. We are going to bring those dreams back."

Women, We’re Co-Workers, Not Competitors

But the Mommy Wars should find no stronghold in the hearts of Christian women, since we know that our righteousness comes from Christ, not us. When we face judgment about our decisions, the grace of God enables us to listen without fearing condemnation. Knowing we’re far more sinful than others think and far more loved than we can imagine, our defensive walls come down, and our character armor comes off. For we know that Christ alone is our hero.

Frederick Douglass's Crusade against 'Soul-Destroying Religion'

I was not more than thirteen years old, when I felt the need of God, as a father and protector. My religious nature was awakened by the preaching of a white Methodist minister, named Hanson. He thought that all men, great and small, bond and free, were sinners in the sight of God; that they were, by nature, rebels against His government; and that they must repent of their sins, and be reconciled to God, through Christ. … I was, for weeks, a poor, broken-hearted mourner, traveling through the darkness and misery of doubts and fears. I finally found that change of heart which comes by "casting all one's care" upon God, and by having faith in Jesus Christ, as the Redeemer, Friend, and Savior of those who diligently seek him.

True Compassion Will Cost Us: Refugees, Widows, Orphans

Our seam-bursting schedules scream for attention. Work deadlines demand, school assignments summon, and social engagements expand our already overburdened loads. Even if we really wanted to, how could we possibly make time to care for someone in need? Can we really make a difference in that struggling teen’s life? Do we compromise the safety of our own family if we invite that stranger into our home for dinner? Can we make any difference in the lives of refugees, even as they feel the new threat to their sojourning among us?

Christian Thinkers 101: A Crash Course on St. Augustine

This series, “Christian Thinkers 101,” provides a snapshot of some of the faith’s key theologians and apologists and their important books and ideas.

Christian, Your Pain Is Never Punishment

Before restoring a man’s sight, Christ explains his blindness occurred not in penalty for sin, but rather “that the works of God might be displayed in him” (John 9:1–3). Christ delays traveling to his dying friend Lazarus, whom he loves, so that in raising him from the dead he might glorify God (John 111–4). Even in the case of Job, the introductory chapters reveal he is “blameless” in God’s sight, and that the calamity that befalls him occurs not as punishment, but as part of a divine plan to defeat the adversary (Job 1–2).

Richard Allen

In 1781, Allen began traveling the Methodist preaching circuits in Delaware and surrounding states. "My usual method was, when I would get bare of clothes, to stop travelling and go to work," he said. "My hands administered to my necessities." Increasingly, prominent Methodist leaders, like Francis Asbury, made sure Allen had places to preach. In 1786 the former slave returned to Philadelphia and joined St. George's Methodist Church. His leadership at prayer services attracted dozens of blacks into the church, and with them came increased racial tension.

Faith Healing

You are so wrong about Benny Hinn and others. I was watching him on tv and God spoke to in an audible voice to take my wife to his healing crusade that was coming within a couple hour drive and she would be healed. I took her and she was miraculously healed. She has MS and I took her in a wheelchair. She felt the fire of God move through her body and suddenly got all feeling back and could walk unassisted. She no longer needed the 21 pills a day or shots to deal with the illness that supposedly had no cure. The healing was verified during her next doctors visit. That was in 1994 and today she is still healthy.

This presentation is excerpted from J. Warner’s longer talk on the issue and the material in Cold-Case Christianity and ALIVE .

The Power (And Danger) of Vulnerability No One Talks About

When we choose to look for our worth and value in baring our hearts (in both good and bad situations!), we lose sight of both Christ and the good that can come from vulnerability, authenticity or kindness. Because here’s the kicker, Christ is the only one who frees us from our dependence on the acceptance of others. Not only is Christ’s vulnerability an example set before us, most importantly, He took on vulnerability in all of its weakness for us. And while we will continue to struggle with the desire to turn our eyes to our own actions for validation, Christ stands as a reminder that it His power is made perfect in our weakness (2 Corinth. 12:9). Christ made himself weak so that he could overcome our weaknesses in His perfect strength!

The Reason Everyone Is Talking About Netflix's New Show 'One Day At A Time'

One of the keys in producing the show was drawing the commonalities that people share even within the subtext of a Latino family. The legendary producer's influence is all over the old-school success formula of the show, as he reviewed every script and even warmed up the live audience prior to every taping. Given Lear's ability to tap into the humanity of his characters with charm and the soft-glow of family affection, the success is hardly surprising.

We Need Black History Month

As a white Christian in America, I have wrestled with what it means to orient on Black History Month. I remember well my unsympathetic heart as a teenager growing up in the South — not only uninformed, but unrighteous — leading me to roll my eyes and say, “So, when’s White History Month?” Such is not the spirit of Christ, nor is it walking by his Spirit to suspect the worst of non-blacks who rush to join the annual celebration. Nor is it Christian — not in this nation or any other place on the planet — to keep silent with our children about the realities of ethnicity in view of Christ. If we don’t cast a positive vision for our children about the glories of God-designed ethnic diversity, we leave their inherent ethnocentrism to swell and take root.

Today’s Progressive Christians are the Best Christians in History. Just Ask Them! | The Stream

I appreciate the message here but the way it is presented is not only being lost on some people, it’s overly snarky tone is down right childish. All of your points as to why progressive Christians have so severely twisted our faith are dead on, I just wish you’d present with a bit less sarcasm (which is crazy even for me to say, I’m sarcastic 24/7). Your message is just going to come off as “better than thou” to those who might disagree with your bullet points, unless that is your goal and you aren’t interested in showing them the light. Do you really want them to feel stupid or do you want them to look at this in a different way that helps identify the hypocrisy in their thinking? In general, this entire website could be a source of wisdom, hope, and truth in a sea of fake news and political agenda-driven entertainment if everyone just toned down the sarcasm and presented the truth like it is. It’s like when your dad looks at your essay for school and says “you can do better than this”.

Gospel Depths: Why God Revealed the Depths of Salvation in Eternity Past

One week-night, when I was sitting in the house of God, I was not thinking much about the preacher’s sermon, for I did not believe it. The thought struck me, “How did you come to be a Christian?” I sought the Lord. “But how did you come to seek the Lord?” The truth flashed across my mind in a moment — I should not have sought Him unless there had been some previous influence in my mind to make me seek Him. I prayed, thought I, but then I asked myself, How came I to pray? I was induced to pray by reading the Scriptures. How came I to read the Scriptures? I did read them, but what led me to do so? Then, in a moment, I saw that God was at the bottom of it all, and that He was the Author of my faith, and so the whole doctrine of grace opened up to me, and from that doctrine I have not departed to this day, and I desire to make this my constant confession, “I ascribe my change wholly to God.” ( Autobiography , 164–165)

Foster Care for the Least of These

Foster care means playing by the government’s rules, which requires a lot of flexibility. Are you ready to be told you can’t discuss the sexuality of a teenager in your care, or “force” the child to come to church with you? Are you ready to work with government agencies and workers who are burnt out? You may be the only evangelical they have ever met. You may be yelled at or mocked or derided by your state worker because they are having a bad day. Are you ready for visitations with birth parents who cannot be counted on to show up? People sign up to take care of children, but often end up spending a fair amount of emotional capital on the state workers and parents.

Is God Real? Examining Atheistic Explanations for the Laws of Logic as “Brute Realities” | Cold Case Christianity

The Laws of Logic are conceptual. They only exist in the mind. They don’t describe physical behaviors or actions of matter, but instead describe conceptual truths . Logical axioms are statements dealing with conceptual patterns and processes of thought. Consider the analogy to physics as a point of contrast. Newton’s three Laws of Motion (for example) may be conceptual as statements, but they describe actual physical behaviors we can observe. This is an important difference relative to the Laws of Logic. Logical absolutes cannot be observed and do not describe the behavior or actions of material objects.

The Apology to the LGBT Community That Needs an Apology | Stand to Reason

For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. For one will scarcely die for a righteous person—though perhaps for a good person one would dare even to die—but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Since, therefore, we have now been justified by his blood, much more shall we be saved by him from the wrath of God. For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, now that we are reconciled, shall we be saved by his life. More than that, we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation. (Rom. 5:6-11)

Why We Raised Our Kids to Believe in God | Reasonable Faith

Jan and I raised our kids to believe in God, indeed, to believe in the Christian God. Why? Because we wanted to teach them the truth. For the same reason, Jan and I did not lie to our children about Santa Claus. We told them that Santa Claus (or Père Noël, as they were raised in Belgium) was a fun, make-believe figure we could pretend brought presents around Christmas time. It was all in good fun, and no big deal. Christmas was mainly about the birth of a historical person who really lived, Jesus of Nazareth, who revealed to us what God is like, died for our sins, and rose from the dead. We were prepared at the drop of a hat to discuss the reasons why we believe these things, should they want to ask. No question was off limits, and open inquiry was encouraged.

Walking with Refugees on the Resurrection Road

This is the gift that Patrick Kingsley offers us in his remarkable book, The New Odyssey: The Story of the 21st-Century Refugee Crisis . Kingsley, a reporter for the Guardian , visited 17 different nations connected to the current refugee crisis, drawing as close as possible to the lives of those fleeing unimaginable terror. He penetrated the underworld that refugees use to get to safer shores, witnessing the fetid holding pins and decrepit camps where they are detained for months on end. He joined rescue missions of migrant boats overloaded to the verge of capsizing on the Mediterranean. He handed out water to families scrambling up rocky cliffs from the Aegean Sea into Greece. He walked for days alongside refugees fleeing through the Balkans in their desperate attempts to gain asylum in Europe. He made contact, in the dark shadows of the night, with nefarious smugglers who profit from the refugees’ plight. He even went so far as to follow one refugee's harrowing journey from North Africa to Sweden, capturing the incredibly complex reality of the refugee's struggle in a way that is both deeply personal and remarkably thorough.
