Philippians 2:1–2: May All Divisions Cease

Jesus did not die so that we could merely tolerate one another. He died so that we would cherish one another.

Why should we use the word "faith" if belief is actually the most reasonable inference from evidence?

4 Lessons We Can Learn From Doubters in the Bible

God is a being;God just is;past,present,future;God is outside of time;God created time. We can't prove God exists ( like many of the axioms of math ), but it is rational to believe God exists because of the creation itself, because of God communication to humankind, and because of the many miracles God the Father and Jesus Messiah performed, and because of the many prophecies that were foretold....especially the prophecies about the Messiah that all were fulfilled in Jesus! (Example, born of a virgin, born in Bethlehem, by his stipes you are healed-cross......)

Carbon, the Miracle Element

A lot of people today worry about the carbon footprints of nations, industries, technologies, and even individual human beings and animals. They worry that our activities are pumping too much carbon in the form of carbon dioxide and methane— both powerful greenhouse gases—into the atmosphere and too much carbon in the form of tiny particles of soot onto glaciers and snowfields. They worry that these activities are warming our planet and raising our sea levels.

Who Decided What Books to Include in the Bible? 5 Principles.

Discussions about what books to include in the canon are complex, of course, and go beyond the scope of this blog. Some books were accepted in the canon much earlier than others. Orthodox, Protestant and Catholics differ over a few books too. Nevertheless, these five principles help clarify that the process of deciding what books were in the Bible was not left up to chance or happenstance. The Church Fathers were very intentional about what books they recognized as divinely inspired, and the common ground across Christian traditions far outweigh the differences.

How Do I Know If I Really Love Jesus?

This is an elegant, devastatingly simple design. God made us to wear our love on our sleeves. He wired us to serve what we treasure. How we love ourselves is evident by how we serve ourselves, for good (Ephesians 5:29) or for evil (2 Timothy 3:2). How we love our spouse or children or friends or pastors or co-workers or pets is evident by how we serve or neglect them. Whether we love God or money is evident by how we serve or neglect one or the other (Luke 16:13). In the long run, we cannot fake who or what we really serve.

How do You Choose a Religion?

Hey, I gotta question!" yelled a student from the back of the room. I was sharing the claims of Christ at a University of Massachusetts fraternity house when he interrupted me. "Yes, what is it?" I queried. "I think Jesus is great for you, but I know Buddhists and Muslims, and they're just as sincere as you are. And they think their views are true just like you do. There's no way a person can know his religion is the 'right' one, so the best thing to do is to just believe everyone's religion is true for them and not judge anyone."

Mitochondrial Eve and Y-Chromosome Adam, and Adam and the Genome | Evolution News

For reasons that have to do with population genetics, both evolutionists and Darwin-skeptics believe that all living humans trace back to a common female ancestor, and a common male ancestor. As regards the “biblical” Adam and Eve, the question is whether these two lived at the same time and could have been a couple that was the progenitor of the genomes of all members of the entire human race, or whether they lived at different times and places and only passed on their mitochondrial DNA and Y chromosomes to us while a much larger chrono-population gave rise to our non-sex chromosomes (autosomes).

The Art of Christian Listening

Both in my personal life and related to apologetics, I’ve been thinking a lot about the importance of hearing and listening to people. A mark of God-pleasing thinking is our willingness to cultivate Christian listening. This means non-aggressively hearing them and even welcoming their potential insights. Here I’d like to suggest some practical steps toward better listening. But first, unpack the Christian in Christian listening.

29
GK Chesterton the Apologist

When we think of Chesterton today, we think of Father Brown, the quintessential priest-detective. But, like Conan Doyle, who believed his more serious writings were more important than his Sherlock Holmes stories, Chesterton’s central thrust (even in the persona of Father Brown) was elsewhere. At heart, Chesterton was a controversalist, or, better, an apologist. What he really wanted to achieve was to bring his contemporaries (and us!) back to sanity by showing the truth of classic Christian orthodoxy.

Does Jesus fit or fulfill the Isaiah 53 prophecy?

Regarding (b) , however, one can establish that Jesus in concept played this substitutionary role, and that he fit the various spiritual criterion in this conceptual way. After all, the concept of Jesus is wrapped up in how he and his death are described by the the early church and New Testament authors. There seem to be two ways in which Jesus, in concept, could fit (b), given that the conditions of Isaiah 53 are sufficiently stringent. Either Jesus's fulfillment of it was divinely arranged, or an author to some degree invented the conceptual Jesus, perhaps intending to conform him to the prophecy.

Isaiah's Signature Uncovered in Jerusalem: Evidence of the Prophet Isaiah?

Mazar’s team found the seal impression in an undisturbed area of Iron Age debris (dated to the eighth–seventh centuries B.C.E.) right outside the southeastern wall of the royal bakery, a structure that had been integrated into the city’s fortifications and had operated until the Babylonian destruction of Jerusalem in 586 B.C.E. All of the excavated dirt from this area of the Ophel was wet-sifted, meaning that it was placed on a sifting screen and washed with water. This process revealed multiple finds—including Isaiah’s seal impression and an impression of the Judahite king Hezekiah —which had been missed during traditional excavation methods. Since each of these impressions has a diameter of about half an inch and is the same color as the dirt, it is easy to understand why they were not spotted in the field.

Is Science Objective? Steven Pinker’s Counterattack Against the “War on Science” | Evolution News

Unfortunately, however, Pinker’s overweening faith in science as a reliable path to the truth has its own problems. First, he seems to assume that “science” is a single, unified front, always striving for objective truth in the face of religious or philosophical obscurantism. However, although observation and experimentation are the crux of the scientific method, there are many different kinds of science, some more reliable than others.

Facebook Obsession and the Anguish of Boredom

Many people who fall into sinful addictions are people who were once terminally bored. The reason why addictions are so powerful is that they tap into that place in our hearts that was made for transcendent communion and spiritual romance. These addictive habits either dull and deaden our yearnings for a satisfaction we fear we’ll never find, or they provide an alternative counterfeit fulfillment that we think will bring long-term happiness — counterfeits like cocaine, overeating, illicit affairs, busyness, efficiency, image, or obsession with physical beauty. They all find their power in the inescapable yearning of the human heart to be fascinated and pleased and enthralled. Our hearts will invariably lead us either to the fleeting pleasures of addiction or to God.

Why No One Should Be Surprised That a Killer Is Living Under Their Roof

When you arrest a serial killer and interview his neighbors, they'll typically say something like, "Wow, I am so glad you took that guy to jail. He was weird. I always suspected he was up to no good. I heard strange noises and smelled strange odors over there all the time." But when you take a cold-case murderer to jail, his neighbor will typically say, "No way! I've known that guy for a dozen years. He's watched my kids and we hang out all the time. There's no way he could have committed a murder." How can regular people who've lived good, decent lives for decades be capable of committing a horrific murder, years earlier? If you're a Christian, you may already know the answer. I certainly do, because the cold-case killers I've investigated confirm the Biblical description of humans.

‘An Unlikely Ally’: What a Secular Atheist Is Teaching Christian Leaders

Last month, Jonathan Haidt—professor of social psychology at New York University’s Stern School of Business, ethnically Jewish, politically left-leaning, and religiously atheist—stood on the main stage of the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities (CCCU) conference. “I was born to be the sort of person who is opposed to your mission,” he told about 1,200 college leaders. “Within two years of my bar mitzvah, I started calling myself an atheist. And not just an atheist, but one of those atheists that sees religion—Christianity especially—as the opponent, as the enemy, because they believe creationism and we scientists believe in evolution.” Several things changed his mind, Haidt said. Not to convert to Christianity—he’s still an atheist—but to drop his hostility toward it. “I got my first teaching position at the University of Virginia,” he told the CCCU. UVA draws students from all over the country, but especially from the western and southern parts of the state. “I had never met evangelical Christians, growing up in New York and going to Ivy League schools,” Haidt said.

Elmer Towns, the Co-Founder of Liberty University: 'Billy Graham Made Me Believe in Revival'

When they cover Billy's wooden casket with dirt, I will not look back. I will look to the future. I will know that somewhere there is another Billy who will study in another unknown Wheaton College, who with only a Bible and the call of God upon his life and faith to move mountains, will again believe God for revival. God will again pour Himself on this needy world. However, the next Billy may come from Fiji, or will be a Hispanic boy from the Southwest or an immigrant from the Far East. He will have an answer for the problems of the world and he will preach to the multitudes in their hour of decision. God will do it again.

Has American Freedom ("Liberalism") Failed? And If So, What Doesn't? | The Stream

In fact, history seems more like an almost endless game of rugby. There aren’t just two teams, and nobody’s wearing jerseys. It’s a constant scrum of one group of people with a partial, imperfect view contending against many others. We can broadly observe that we don’t want any of these teams to score a goal. Instead, we want the ball to stay near the middle of the field. That’s the closest we can hope to come to a Golden Mean balancing virtue and political freedom, the common good and the human person. But we must make clear that it’s a balance we seek, and renounce extremes that violate basic human rights, like religious freedom. To do any less is not just a crime, but a blunder. It’s a Tiffany’s blue-wrapped gift to the enemies of the Church.
