Pro-Choicers’ Reaction to Doritos Super Bowl Ad Exposes the Weakness in Their Worldview

An Apologetic Tour-de-Force

Peter Williams is a genius. If you don't know him, he's the Warden of Tyndale House, Cambridge, an immensely intelligent guy, a super communicator, and an expert in biblical languages. (There's an amusing moment in the Q&A at the end of this video when someone asks, "How many languages have you read parts of the Bible in?", and he rather self-deprecatingly answers, "Twelve." That gives you an idea.) Here he is with an extremely good lecture on slavery - and I say that as one who has spoken and written on this subject a number of times, and thought he knew it pretty well - which makes some intriguing points about translation, legal codes, the Exodus story and the New Testament. If you can find an hour to watch it, it is well worth your time.

President Obama: Jesus Calls Us to Reject Fear

This week, President Obama addressed the National Prayer Breakfast, and used the opportunity to essentially preach a sermon on fear—and why the Bible calls us to reject it. While acknowledging global violence, economic hardships and environmental concerns, he said that “Jesus is a good cure for fear.”: Lately I’ve been thinking and praying on verse from 2 Timothy, ‘For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind’ … “Fear can feed our most selfish impulses and erode the bonds of community. It is a primal emotion–fear–one that we all experience, and it can be contagious, spreading through societies, and through nations, and if we let it consume us, the consequences of that fear can be worse than any outward threat. For me, and I know for so many of you, faith is the great cure for fear. Jesus is a good cure for fear. God gives believers the power, the love, the sound mind required to conquer any fear, and what more important moment for that faith than right now? … What better time than these changing tumultuous times to have Jesus standing beside us, steadying our minds, cleansing our hearts, pointing us towards what matters. His love gives us the power to resist fear’s temptations. He gives us the courage to reach out to others across that divide rather than push people away. He gives us the courage to go against the conventional wisdom and stand up for what’s right even when it’s not popular – to stand up not just to our enemies, but sometimes stand up to our friends. He also discussed his recent visit to mosque, and the need for people of all faiths to reject fear and embrace peace. You can watch his entire address below.

7 Things Christians Need to Remember About Politics

The country is not going to be destroyed if your candidate loses. As 2 Timothy 1:7 says, “God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” Stand up and demonstrate what God has given you. America has functioned—albeit, at varying levels of success—for years under the direction of alternating Democrat and Republican control, and at every flip, the other side thought it was the end of the world. It’s not. And if we’re a Church that believes God is in control, we have to believe that He is the one in control of the end times—not whoever's in office now, and not whoever succeeds them.

Wheaton College Backs Away from Plan to Terminate Larycia Hawkins

In a February 2 letter, Stan Jones told faculty, “I communicated to Dr. Hawkins that I recognize her as a sister in Christ, and that it was never my intent to call the sincerity of her faith into question. I asked Dr. Hawkins for her forgiveness for the ways I contributed to the fracture of our relationship, and to the fracture of Dr. Hawkins’ relationship with the College. While I acted to exercise my position of oversight of the faculty within the bounds of Wheaton College employment policies and procedures, I apologized for my lack of wisdom and collegiality as I initially approached Dr. Hawkins, and for imposing an administrative leave more precipitously than was necessary.”

The Proverbs 31 Man

The mega-grace we enjoy in the gospel gives us the power, the vision, and the heart to build one other up (Eph. 4:29). Brothers, it’s no longer us who live, but Christ who lives in us (Gal. 2:20). The ultimate Proverbs 31 man is alive and well in the heavenly places, leading us, guiding, us, empowering us, and conforming us into his image. The Proverbs 31 man is more than a neat way to go about husbanding—it’s the way of Christ. He rejoices over his bride. He encourages us, walks with us, and fills us with his Spirit. Jesus Christ is the Proverbs 31 man in the flesh. Let’s draw near to him and he will draw near to us—and then we, and the homes we lead, will never be the same.

The Consequences of Forgiven Sin

By the power of truth and the Spirit, we must learn to revel in the grace of God, the forgiveness of sins, the hope of glory, the joy of the Lord at the very same time that we may be suffering from the consequences of forgiven sin. We must not equate forgiveness with absence of painful impact. David’s life is a vivid illustration of this truth. May God give us the grace to learn it and live it.

Lean in on Sunday Morning

Leaning in on Sunday morning has less to do with the posture of your body, and more to do with the stance of your soul — whether your heart is constricted and closed in corporate worship, or swelling in hope and expanding with expectation. Whether you have an attitude of anticipation, or whether society’s increasing cynicism about everything under the sun has come home to roost in your own chest. Whether you’re ready to give the benefit of the doubt to miscues up front and distractions around you in the pews, or are waiting for another excuse to disengage.

10 The Briefing 02-08-16 |

What does that tell us? It tells us that this Massachusetts-based confectioner who has been making sweetheart candy now for 150 years considers it both fresh and safe to come out in favor of same-sex marriage by featuring as the supposedly iconic couple for their 2016 Valentine’s Day campaign, an octogenarian gay couple from Dallas, Texas. And so we find ourselves the morning after the Super Bowl looking at the fact that repeatedly, over the course of the past several days, we’ve seen how worldview and moral change are driven by and reflected by advertising campaigns: Doritos that, by the way, recently had a controversial ad campaign with rainbow colored Doritos, and then we’re looking at NARAL’s response, then we see this story about Sweethearts by Necco and the fact that they’ve chosen the two 80-year-olds who are now legally married in Texas, two men as the featured couple for their current sweethearts advertising campaign. And then we see the professor at Boston University explaining why this is so timely and she says it’s because companies want to be a part of the topical conversation.

A Plea to the Mission Minded

Behold suburbia, the mission field for whom our hearts do not break. We hold them in contempt as those who have heard and spurned the gospel. Their failing marriages, rebellious children, and quiet addictions stir in us weariness and wariness: This is their own doing. This is the fruit of their commonplace lives of capitulation and mediocrity. Suffering and loss may visit them, but they still drive to hospitals and gravesites in late-model SUVs. Why should we pour out our lives on the rocky soil of suburban America when, for the price of a plane ticket, we can till the fertile fields of Africa, Asia, South America?

Debunking Silly Statements About the Bible

Second, Christian scholars have been exceedingly careful to document—in actual books that you can buy, if you’re willing to shell out the money—the most significant variants  along with  an analysis of each one like the kind we’ve done here. Of course you’re free to disagree with any one of the conclusions those scholars reach; Christians have fun arguing about this kind of thing all the time. But the point is that, again, there’s no conspiracy to pull the wool over anyone’s eyes. Where there are variants to be reckoned with, Christians are wide open about that fact, precisely because we believe those variants—and the reasons behind why they exist in the first place—can help us determine to a decisively high degree of probability what the original New Testament documents really said.

Three Sightings of the Glory of Jesus

The most ultimate prayer that Jesus prayed for Char — and that could be prayed for Char — was that she would see the glory of the risen Christ and love him with an all-satisfying love the way his Father does. There isn’t anything greater than to see the Son of God in all his divine beauty and radiance and greatness, and be supremely and increasingly happy in him forever. There isn’t anything greater or more profoundly satisfying than this. And this is what Jesus prayed for Char.

Woman Shows Up to Her Own Funeral Surprising Everyone, Including Husband Who Paid to Have Her Killed

A real-life story unfolding in Australia sounds more like an insane movie plot. A man named Balenga Kalala paid three hitmen to kill his wife, Noela Rukundo while she was on a trip to her home country of Burundi, because he thought she was running off with another man. After kidnapping, blindfolding and threatening her, the unidentified hitmen, who somehow knew Rukundo's brother, decided to let her live. Without telling her husband, they dropped her off on the side of a road with a cell phone and evidence of the whole, dirty exchange. She made her way back to Melbourne, Australia where her husband had told their friends and children that she had died in a tragic accident. She got back in time for her own funeral and surprised her horrified husband, who immediately cried, “I’m sorry for everything.” Unsurprisingly, that didn't resolve the issue, and Rukundo called the police. Kalala has pleaded guilty and been sentenced to nine years in prison for incitement to murder, according to the Australian Broadcasting Corporation .

“It is no exaggeration to insist that the issue dealt with in this book is more important than any other that one might suggest. For, as Ferguson makes all too clear, the issue is the very definition of the gospel itself. The errors of antinomianism and legalism lie ready to allure unwary hucksters content with mere slogans and rhetoric. I can think of no one I trust more to explore and examine this vital subject than Sinclair Ferguson. For my part, this is one of the most important and definitive books I have read in over four decades.” Derek Thomas , Senior Minister, First Presbyterian Church, Columbia, South Carolina; Robert Strong Professor of Systematic and Pastoral Theology, Reformed Theological Seminary

Finding Truth: 5 Principles for Unmasking Atheism, Secularism, and Other God Substitutes - Kindle edition by Nancy Pearcey. Religion & Spirituality Kindle eBooks @

Nancy Pearcey’s bestselling and award-winning book "Total Truth" made quite a mark on my life. It was, to my memory, the first book I had ever read on worldview, and its explanation of the way our world divides the sacred and the secular has not only stuck with me, but has helped me better understand and explain the culture around me. Though Pearcey has written another book between then and now, I consider her new work, "Finding Truth," the true sequel to "Total Truth." In "Finding Truth," Pearcey offers 5 principles meant to unmask our culture’s endless worldview alternatives to Christianity—secularism, atheism, and the like. There are all kinds of books that make a similar promise, but this one has a noteworthy difference: Pearcey looks to Romans 1 to find a kind of apologetics training manual for identifying and challenging any other worldview. At the start of Paul’s letter to the church in Rome, he claims that all humanity has access to evidence for God’s existence, and then describes what happens when people refuse to acknowledge him.

5 Reasons You Should (Probably) Leave Your Attractional Church

Excellent article, thank you. Reading the comments here I can empathize with many who are struggling with decisions whether to stay or go… Tough situations to face. My own story is similar. I have challenged the leadership of 3 previous churches which ultimately resulted in me leaving when it was clear they would not yield to the challenge. I believe the problem centres around an unbiblical leadership structure where you have a person called a ‘Pastor’ at the head, who is generally Not pastorally gifted, and they seem to believe their position is unchallengeable. My belief of the Church is drawn from the pages of the Bible, most notably Ephesians 4, where it states that, “God Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, some pastors and some teachers…” These of course should be supported with elders and deacons, and then of course every other body part should also play it’s part. There is no total position of CEO in a church, but I keep meeting people who act as though there were. The Church I am in currently is very ‘nice’, but does not challenge with the gospel really.

But at the same time, I’m hoping to offer enough bold leadership on a broad slate of issues that many voters will decide we agree on far more than we disagree.”

RESPONDblogs: Why Christianity Can't Just Be Based On Wishful Thinking

And this raises a question for me. As I raise my eyebrow at Betty Hills outlandish claim…which sounds very much like fiction to me…I wonder whether Christianity sounds just like it to many people today. Christianity’s claim that Jesus of Nazareth returned from the dead 2000 years ago  – is this any less outlandish? Does the New Testament’s report of Jesus’ resurrection belong in the fictional “X-Files” cabinet, or is there more substance to Christianity’s claim that points toward its historical credentials?

What hath Apologetics to do with Discipleship?

Yes, the play on “what hath Jerusalem to do with Athens?” is fully intentional. Much the same intention of the original is communicated by this question. What relation has “Athens” (whatever that means, usually the mind/intellect) to do with “Jerusalem” (whatever that means, typically Scripture, Christianity, and “spirituality”). In much the same way apologetics tends to be divorced from the life of discipleship to Jesus.

Why Do Christians Fast?

So several things stand out in that passage. One is that Jesus says, “ When you fast,” not “ If you fast.” That is what I mean when I say it seems that he expects that his followers will be fasting. But even more clear in this passage is that Jesus insisted that our fasting not be for the sake of impressing other people. In fact, we should go out of our way, he says, as much as possible — washing our face, combing our hair — to keep other people from knowing that we are fasting. And that gives fasting for Christians a radically Godward focus. And in that sense fasting is a great test and confirmation that God is real to us, since in many situations God is the only person who knows you’re fasting. And the discipline can’t impress anybody, and all it can do is test whether you and God are really having a transaction here.

7 New Theology Books You Should Read This Year

My book is derived from a set of lectures I gave at Princeton University in 2008. I wanted to show the class the native simplicity of theology—a discipline foreign to most of the students—while at times noting some of the disagreements that have arisen in its history and some of the fascinating paths for speculation that have opened. To do this, one will inevitably, and rightly, sketch some specific theology. And so the book indeed presents an outline of theology, one I avow. It turns on the death and resurrection of Jesus as the Lord’s own answer to the question he posed to Ezekiel in the valley of bones: “Can these bones live” (Ezek. 37:3). Since the dry bones are the whole of the people chosen to be God’s instrument in history, the question amounts to “Does death win?” Many suppose that theology itself is a heap of dead bones, and some attention is given to this possibility. ~ Robert Jenson, emeritus senior scholar for Research at the Center for Theological Inquiry in Princeton, New Jersey

Do Not Fear the Hard Things of Marriage

Jesus, who walks with us, bears his own scars testifying of personal pain. He walked his own dark valley and now sympathizes and intercedes for us. Willingly, Christ placed himself under the curse of this world, so he could protect us from our own wickedness and eternal damnation. He paid the price to make us his beloved sheep and he will take great care of those who cost his own life. A Good Shepherd lays down his life for his sheep; we have such a shepherd and with him we will not fear the hard things of marriage.

32 Biblical Qualifications for Political Leadership

Fidelity: Faithfulness to one’s wife was a prerequisite for ruling ancient Israel. The collapse of the first Jewish state was due in no small degree to the kings’ immoral lifestyles, the examples they set, and the judgment of God that followed. It is worth remembering, too, that a leader who would lie to his or her spouse would lie to his or her country. We saw that happen in 1998, and with it came great social and political turmoil, not to mention a moral wounding of our nation’s youth. A leader who boasts of his sexual exploits should give all Americans great concern.


When I was a kid, any time I needed something, I’d go talk to my dad. Sometimes what I needed was expensive, but I remember that not once as a kid did I worry about where my father was going to get the money for whatever I needed. That wasn’t my job! It was my dad’s job to figure out where the money was going to come from. It was my job as a kid to simply ask.

An Ambassador to the ‘Spiritual but Not Religious’

Descartes’s philosophy has a surprisingly contemporary feel in the 21st century. A recent re-reading of his work gave me the sense that he might feel right at home with those who identify as “spiritual but not religious” (or simply, the “nones”). Like many nones today, Descartes likely saw the senseless devastation that was done in the name of religion. (He was, after all, born less than a century after the dawn of the Reformation and undoubtedly knew the religious violence that saturated Europe in the early 17th century.) Today, we still see our share of religious violence and inconsistent or abusive behavior by prominent religious leaders, which rightly makes us shudder, if not roil with anger.

Is atheism a religion? Not nearly as much as the Super Bowl | Think Christian

There’s been much hand-wringing of late about the fact that unbelief is on the rise. An increasing number of people self-identify as atheist and as having no particular religious belief.

Pork, Chicken, and Witnessing to Your Muslim Neighbor

But each time we sin, it’s like adding a piece of pork to our plate. If I’m not devoted to prayer, I add some pork. If I lie, I add some pork. Any type of sin I commit adds pork to my plate of rice and chicken. Now imagine on Judgment Day you must present your plate of rice and meat to God, to see if he’ll accept you into heaven or throw you into hell. Have you ever sinned, my friend?

Is C.S. Lewis’s Liar-Lord-or-Lunatic Argument Unsound?

Steve, I just noticed your reply. Aristotle may have agreed with you. However, the standard interpretation of a name in a premise such as, “If Jesus were not Lord, he would be a liar or a lunatic” is as a universal statement. As such, according to standard logic, it does not imply existence of either Jesus or the claims he made. It only means that if anyone is Jesus and if he said that he is Lord, then if he is not the Lord, then he is either a liar or a lunatic. Because of the conditional (if), the premise can be true regardless of the existence of Jesus or his claims. Check in any standard logic book (Hurley/Copi etc) and look up “Boolean interpretation” in the categorical or predicate logic section. You will see something like the above sentences translated without implying existence. For contrast, consider a claim that does imply existence: some seals are slippery. This sentence implies that there are some things and those things are seals and they are slippery. But the sentence about Jesus does not. Even if you take an Aristotelian view, there is only an “openness” to existence; it does not “entail” existence.

15 Arguments for the Existence of God

However, I present 15 arguments for the existence of God so that I might establish a strong cumulative case for his existence. This is because some arguments are more so about strong probability (i.e.,the argument religious experience, argument from miracles, etc.) while others can have a demonstrative element to them (i.e., Aquinas’ Third Way). The combination of these given characteristics can (in my opinion) be very effective in a case for theism – particularly, that of Christian theism. These arguments are as follows:


“Blending profound insight with clear explanation, Vern Poythress shows us that Jesus’s miracles are not merely random acts of kindness and power, but—most importantly—are signs pointing to the central events of his redemptive mission: his sacrificial death and mighty resurrection. Poythress leads us from the incarnation, healings, stilled seas, transfiguration, and other supernatural displays of Jesus’s identity as glorious God, last Adam, and promised Messiah to the cross and empty tomb. Then he leads us on to the application in our own lives and struggles with sin and suffering. I highly recommend this reader-friendly and Christ-glorifying study.” Dennis E. Johnson , Professor of Practical Theology, Westminster Seminary California

Pro-Abortionists Mad at Doritos For Showing Ultrasound, 'Humanizing Fetus'; Have They Lost Their Minds?

We'll ignore the ridiculous attack on "sexist tropes of dads as clueless & moms as uptight," as if it is "sexist" to have fun with the image of a dad who is not quite used to being in the doctor's office with his wife during an ultrasound and with a mom who might be just the tiniest bit "uptight" during the process. Oh, the rank sexism of it all!

Update: Wheaton College Asks for Controversial Prof's Forgiveness

Hawkins made news back in December when Wheaton put her on administrative leave after she stated that Muslims and Christians worship the same God . The school administration said they put Hawkins on leave in order to “explore significant questions regarding the theological implications of her recent public statements, including but not limited to those indicating the relationship of Christianity to Islam." Then, the college began making moves to terminate her employment (which is not a simple process for a tenured professor). Now, Hawkins and Wheaton seem to parting on better terms. Perhaps most notably, WashPo also cites a separate email from Wheaton provost Stan Jones, in which he explains that he is asking for Hawkins’ forgiveness: “I asked Dr. Hawkins for her forgiveness for the ways I contributed to the fracture of our relationship, and to the fracture of Dr. Hawkins’ relationship with the College,” he writes. In his email, Ryken also says the school’s board of trustees will “conduct a thorough review” of the whole situation.

Against Our Own Sin by Steven Lawson | February 6, 2016

The Russian novelist Alexander Solzhenitsyn once wrote: “The line dividing good and evil cuts through the heart of every human being.” As Christians, it is very easy to fall into the trap of seeing the enemy as “over there.” If we draw the lines clearly enough and build the walls high enough, we will be safe. Or so we think. We very easily forget that we war not only against the world and the devil, but also against our own sinful flesh.

A Spiritual Revolution on Dangerous Ground

While addressing these and other important issues, however, Bass swings the pendulum too far. In many places, her views fall outside of historic Christianity. For example, she relativizes the concept of sin, dismisses our need of personal salvation (122, 275), and doesn’t like teachings that “emphasize salvation through blood” (23). She claims to be agnostic about the possibility of an afterlife (62) but insists warning people of hell is “nonsense” (279), describes heaven as a way of living on earth now (274), and seems to deny bodily resurrection (160). She also insists fellowship with/in God isn’t associated with any specific set of beliefs, but is open to all persons and things (272).

Think It Not Strange: Fiery Trials and the Testimony of Christ

Why are they not strange? Because, in God’s wisdom, he has planned that the sufferings of Christ save us from the sufferings of punishment, not the sufferings of purification. They save us from the fires of hell, not from the fires of refining. In fact, in 1 Peter 1:6–7, we are told that, far from being strange and surprising in God’s plan, these fiery trials are “necessary.” “For a little while, if necessary , you have been grieved by various trials, so that the tested genuineness of your faith . . . may result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ.”
