Why North Korea's Latest Nuclear Threat Is So Concerning

Newspapers in North Korea—which, like most things in the country, are controlled by the government—recently posted new photos that show dictator Kim Jong Un alongside what they claim is a nuclear warhead. According to the state-run paper, the new warheads are small enough to be fitted to long-range missiles and to be used in a “preemptive" attack. The country has a long history of using dramatic rhetoric to threaten the U.S. and South Korea, but the latest development is concerning. In their new statement—which is in response to ongoing military training exercises in the region between the U.S. and South Korea— the National Defense Commission said, “If we push the buttons to annihilate the enemies even right now, all bases of provocations will be reduced to seas [of] flames and ashes in a moment.” Despite the over-the-top-language (seas of flames and ashes?!), the reason security officials are watching the reclusive country so closely is because North Korea has recently tested both ballistic missiles and (possibly) nuclear weapons, though there is some debate about how successful they were. The reality is, after a series of sanctions and crackdowns from countries across the world—including some from its closest ally China—the regime may be getting desperate. It seems unlikely that North Korea could pull off a major nuclear attack, but, as The Daily Beast notes in this great analysis, the situation in the country, where millions face almost unimaginable oppression, is unstable. In an interview with a South Korean outlet, a Chinese official close to the situation said this time, the regime may have “signed its own death warrant.” Though military provocations are what make most of the headlines, the people of North Korea are the ones suffering daily from the government’s tyrannical presence in the country. As this documentary from the organization Liberty in North Korea shows (it's 50-minutes long, but well worth the watch), the nightmare of life in the country is human rights tragedy.

Hilarious Video of Cyclists Being Chased By an Ostrich or a Clip from ‘Jurassic World 2’?

According to the uploader of this clip, the following incident took place at South Africa’s Cape Argus Tour cycling event, where, "I spotted a white ostrich on my left, then this beast jumped on the road from the right and started chasing my friends! It was a little scary at first, but then I thought I gonna fell of my bike from laughter.” He claims, it is not some sort of viral clip for Jurassic World 2, but it sure does look familiar.

Science Finally Explains Why Stepping on a Lego Is the Most Painful Sensation on Earth

The good folks at the American Chemical Society have used their decades of medical research and biochemical analysis to finally answer one of humanity’s great questions: Why is stepping on a tiny Lego block with a bare foot literally the most painful sensation a human being can experience.

5 Lies I Used to Believe About Being A Christian

I have read some of the comments that pertains to this article, and I have to say that it's sad. First of all, each person have different experiences with the church, some positive and some negative, and I feel that sometimes we can be so apathetic when it comes to those who has had negative experiences with a particular church, such as the writer of this article. I can also relate to the writer, because I have been through similar situations when it came to church.I don't think he was trying to say that if a church isn't tech savvy or more modern then it's not a good church, but he was discussing much bigger issues such as whole idea of what Christianity is about. Too many times, we put labels in front of the words "church" and "Christian" such as "fundamentalist", "liberal", "modern", etc. I know that some churches have unbiblical teachings whether they're identified as fundamental, liberal, mini, midi, mega, black. white, modern, traditional, Protestant, or Catholic. Church is not just a building, it's a population of believers who make up the Body of Christ. I don't care what type of church you belong to, who you voted for, your political views, whether you like old hymns, Kirk Franklin, or Hillsong, whether you like wearing suits or T-shirt and jeans, whether you are introverted or extroverted, or what your skin color or ethnicity is, if we all believe that the God's word is the ultimate foundation of our lives, that God created us in His own image, that Heaven and Hell are real places, that because of Adam and Eve's sin, we're all sinners in need of a Savior, that God loved us so much that he sent Jesus to the Cross to die for our sins so that we can have life (both on Earth and in Heaven), that Jesus defeated death, hell, and the grave by resurrection, and that one day, He will return so that we can be with Him in Heaven, I don't see the reason to complain about how other churches operate or how other Christians live their lives.

5 Things Great Leaders Do (That Most People Don’t)

I meet a lot of passionate young people who jump from one thing to the next without finishing many of the things they’ve started. As my mentor pointed out to me in my early twenties, this is a character issue. It’s a sign of immaturity and selfishness as we what we want or feel right now is given complete precedence. It breaks trust with others as they come to realize we can’t be counted on to follow through on what we’ve said. It develops a really bad habit that will not serve you well as you grow older. And it shortcuts the character development that happens in the hard work of persevering (Romans 5:3-4), a necessary quality for every leader.

Better Than a Birth Plan

We do not have ultimate control over our children’s lives. We cannot force our children to nurse, sleep, stay healthy, or love and trust God. Pregnancy and childbirth are not exercises in self-expression, but instead are some of the first opportunities to trust God in parenting.

What Would Happen if the Church Tithed?

After I left the pulpit ministry I moved my family, 5 of us from TX and took an entry level job with a Christian company in CA. I barely made enough money to pay bills and buy food for my family. We started attending a church in southern CA and totally loved it - and still do today. One Sunday I was trilled that I had money to give to this church. Was it 10%? No - it was a 20 dollar bill. When it came time to give that 20 was in my hand, and I was so excited to give it to the church. But before the ushers were released the pastor said that if what you were giving was under 10% then it was like a rotten tooth that should be just thrown away!!

Hope for the Unhappy Christian

It’s true that God is not giving you what you deserve. We deserve God’s wrath, yet daily we receive new mercies. How can sickness, suffering, and other tragedies be considered mercy? By realizing that every morning we don’t wake up in hell is an example of God’s mercy toward us. Even when we’re feeling our worst, God is showing us more mercy than we deserve. There is no calamity or tragedy that we can face that is worse than the holy wrath of God. At the same time, there is no earthly pleasure that can compare to the glory that is to be revealed. This is how the Apostle Paul faced suffering, “For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us.”

11 Mind-bending Christian Book Covers You Can't Unsee

Can someone there at Relevant explain to me why Amish Vampires in Space is on this list? (And no, that is not my book nor a relative, nor do I have a box of them to sell) You may think the premise is bizarre but that is not the same thing as a bad cover, which is what you claim this list to be. The font is fine, the art itself is actually really good ( Its not a stock photo of a girl staring off into the sunset with wind-whipped hair!) and the mood seems like it reflects the subject matter accurately. A real artist/designer actually worked on this one. What exactly is wrong with it from an art and cover layout standpoint? No, really, I'll wait for an objective response from your design team... Or an admission that it was only put on the list to make fun of the title itself, though if you're going to do that maybe you should include Joel Osteene's 'Your Best LIfe Now'. I might even take the Amish vampires more seriously.

Your Bad Ecclesiology Is Hurting Us

Invite furloughing missionaries to make a full report to the church. Paul and Barnabas gathered the church together and “declared all that God had done with them” (Acts 14:27). On a recent furlough I was asked by the elder boards of several supporting churches to make a report to them. I loved it! Deep down missionaries want to know their supporting churches stand with them in the task of raising up indigenous churches. We also love the accountability of knowing we need to share more than just a few photos with smiling local people in them.

When Will More Christians Start Taking Climate Change Seriously?

I don't really care if climate change is real or not, because it is unfortunately a political topic and the wrong way of approaching a subject and change that should be central to people of faith. I think it's pretty agreed upon that God said to protect the planet & not trash it. Making changes like to recycle are great, but the heart of the matter is that we have to be making conscious decisions to limit our consumption & think about our daily decisions, climate change or not. If the conversation was phrased in this way, maybe the response would be more positive. Protecting & living thoughtfully on Earth and therefore upholding God's will should be a central theme in the Christian faith but is often unfortunately most cast away by otherwise seemingly strong followers of Christ. I would love to see this conversation change.

Carly Fiorina Endorses Ted Cruz for President | Cruz for President

“Carly Fiorina is a strong, principled leader and woman of faith,” said Cruz. “Our campaign is stronger with her leadership and her voice. Her story embodies the promise that in America anyone can start as a secretary and become a Fortune 50 CEO. Carly speaks the truth with courage, doesn’t back down to the Washington powerbrokers, and terrifies Hillary and the Democrats. We are blessed to have her support, and together I am confident we will continue to unite conservatives so that every American has the opportunity to achieve the unimaginable.”

15 Please Convince Me

This distinction, and the importance of pursuing truth, can be seen in the following analogy: imagine a person who is suffering from a medical disorder. One day he is fine and the next the disease begins the process of eventually killing him. Initially, he does not know he is afflicted.He “feels” fine. He continues to go about his business, concerned with the problems of everyday life and not suspecting that anything may be different, let alone dreadfully wrong. Eventually, symptoms begin to appear, but they are not particularly troubling to him. After friends insist that he have them checked out, he agrees to see a doctor.This is a big step for him, for he does not “believe” in doctors.He thinks that doctors are often wrong and that they rely too much on pills and not enough on just “living right.” He knows that others really believe in doctors, but he is “sincere” in his belief that doctors do more harm than good, especially when one doesn’t “feel” that anything is wrong. After running a battery of tests, however, the doctor identifies the illness and tells the patient what is wrong.

Who ordered that?

And particle physicists’ excitement is understandable, if tempered by caution. For decades, their field has been finding evidence for the standard model of particle physics, a collection of theories that was put together in the 1970s and has been more successful than anyone expected. The current generation of young physicists was not even born when particle accelerators produced their last genuinely surprising results. Meanwhile, searches for physics beyond the standard model have so far come up empty — at accelerators such as the LHC but also in many tabletop experiments and at detectors built underground or sent into space to look for dark matter. The most notable exception to the standard model’s standard fare has been the discovery, beginning in 1998, that the elementary particles called neutrinos spontaneously oscillate between their three known types, or flavours — something that the original version of the standard model had not predicted. That breakthrough earned two physicists a well-deserved Nobel Prize last year.

17
Did the Reformers Really Get Paul Wrong?

Most Bible majors and seminary students over the last two generations have heard “the reformers” and their followers botched it badly on reading Paul—a view advanced over a century ago by noted Pauline scholar Albert Schweitzer. Krister Stendahl rearticulated the view in the 1960s. Then E. P. Sanders, James Dunn, and N. T. Wright extended it in various ways, which resulted in what’s now called the “New Perspective on Paul.” Today, it’s about as new as anything else that emerged half a century ago. But its effects are still with us, they are not all healthy (though a few are), and examination of the issues it has raised can be entirely proper and helpful.

Apologetics: Who Really Wrote the Gospels?

So who really wrote the Gospels? How do we know that Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John dictated the books that bear their names? According to skeptics, these four first-century personalities had little or nothing to do with the four New Testament Gospels. One scholar of the more skeptical sort has described the process in this way:

19
Should Christians Mix Faith and Politics?

Laws have power to help or hurt the poor . Laws protect the equality of citizens. Laws protect children from becoming a cheap labor force. Laws can be utilized to protect the economy from collapsing. Laws guarantee education rights and rights to emergency medical care. Bills are passed that fund weather alert programs in poor neighborhoods and fund inner-city food pantries that feed the homeless. Elected officials lobby for laws that do good, when good citizens elect them to office. If good citizens do not caucus for good representatives, the needs of the poor are left to cultural currents—or worse. Christians are mandated to care for the poor (Prov. 22:9; 31:20; Dan. 4:27; Matt. 19:21; Gal. 2:10; Jas. 2:5). Should we pretend that our vote does not affect the poor?

Is the ‘Good Samaritan’ dead? - Premier Christian Radio

In the story of the Good Samaritan a man was beaten up by robbers and left for dead by the roadside. No help was offered to him when a priest and a Levite walked by, as he was a stranger and deemed as ‘socially unacceptable’ to them. The only person to stop and help was a Good Samaritan, who took pity on him and carried his bruised body to an nearby Inn where he instructed the owners to take care of the wounded man.

Small vs. Big Churches: The Family Feud We All Lose

Does not God speak and lead all committed Christians, whether great or small? Well in the megachurch, unless you are one of the chosen few, you have absolutely no say, or no part in the service, no influence, no chance to have your voice or opinion or what you think God is saying heard. I’m not saying that we should take a vote on all issues, but every committed Christian’s vote or opinion should matter in their Church. But this is very rarely seen in a large church. In the ideal model, churches, both large and small should a group of elders or deacon’s who should be equal and who should oversee the church, with the pastor being one of the elders, but not dictating to the elders. The elders should listen to the people and their needs, and balance that with how God is leading them.

http://truthbomb.blogspot.com/2016/03/how-historians-examine-new-testament.html?utm_source=twitterfeed&utm_medium=twitter

Many unbelievers and skeptics seem to think that you have to look to sources outside of the Bible to argue for it's reliability and if you quote the Bible some assert that you are quoting the Bible to prove the Bible.  However, this misunderstands what historians do when they examine the documents of the New Testament, as philosopher and theologian William Lane Craig explains: "They're not treating the Bible as a holy, inspired book and trying to prove it's true by quoting it.  Rather they're treating the New Testament just like any other collection of ancient documents and investigating whether these documents are historically reliable." 1 Craig goes to on to explain the error committed by someone who insists that evidence for the New Testament can only be taken from writings outside of it: "The church chose only the earliest sources, which were closer to Jesus and the original disciples, to include in the New Testament and left out the later, secondary accounts like the forged apocryphal gospels, which everyone knew were fakes.  So from the very nature of the case, the best historical sources were included in the New Testament.

How to Keep Fear from Controlling You

Then I started to look at what surrender really meant. It wasn’t giving in as much as letting go—letting go of the false identity that brings fear. It’s so easy to forget who we really are and who our true Father is. See, we are children of the King, yet we see trouble and we fear for our lives—and, worse, we judge ourselves for being afraid. We beat ourselves up for not being stronger, for giving into weakness and then we are afraid and feel worthless. This is a dangerous cycle that only starts to change when you practice believing in your true identity. In the powerful heritage that has been given to you by the Father.

You probably wouldn’t see them doing so, but they’re faithfully arriving early on Sunday morning to set up the hospitality table, the book table, and the sound equipment and to make coffee—making sure that everything is in place for the worship services. You probably wouldn’t see her doing so, but she’s faithfully cleaning her home hours before she opens it for a church small group. You probably wouldn’t see him doing so, but he’s faithfully making hymn schedules and arrangements for the music for the worship services. You probably wouldn’t see her doing so, but she’s faithfully lining up volunteers for the nursery, training others, and making sure that all the nursery needs are met. You probably wouldn’t see him doing so, but he’s faithfully keeping track of giving records for the members who themselves faithfully give to the work of the gospel ministry.

As a general rule, I try not to get sucked into unfruitful conversations with atheists on social media. Of course, there is a time and place for it, but I didn’t think this person was open to truth. I was ready to let this go when she said something that caught my attention. She started to attack the moral character of God. To make her point, she brought up what she referred to as the “genocides” committed by God in the Old Testament. Clearly, she did not think God had the right to kill people in the Bible. In fact, she thought that these atrocities turned God into an evil monster.

May Christian Doctors Help Patients Die If the Law Permits?

Discerning that time is not easy in these modern, remarkably wonderful medical days in which we live, which have created new possibilities for sustaining life beyond all ordinary means of life. And so I am just admitting great ambiguity here. The will of the patient to live is one key factor. Yes, strive to sustain life for a patient who desires life. But the will of the patient to die is not a decisive word, for the simple reason that many patients in the crisis of depression have attempted suicide, been rescued, and gone on to be thankful for the rest of their lives that someone contradicted their dark desires at that moment. And there are other reasons.

Bob Dylan Is Working on a New Album

Even at 74-years-old, Bob Dylan remains one of American music’s most prolific artist. This week, he announced that not only would he be heading out for a cross-country summer tour (along with opening act Mavis Staples), but that he’s also working on a new album, due out on May 20th. His 37th studio album, is a follow-up to Shadows In The Night , which consisted entirely of Frank Sinatra covers. Though Fallen Angels will also be a covers album , it’s not clear yet what artists Dylan will be tackling this time. But, when you’ve written as many rock ’n roll staples as Bob Dylan has in the last five decades, you can pretty much just do whatever you want.

Partly because she lived in Algeria for 40 years, until she died. A lot of her work did get smuggled back bit by bit to England by missionaries, so some of it’s preserved. But some of it was lost. The Algiers Mission Band of hers disbanded when things got politically tense in Algeria, and they pushed all the missionaries out. Even though she was a contemporary or an influence like Elisabeth Elliot and Amy Carmichael, she just didn’t gain the prominence of these other famous female missionaries. She had written books, but they didn’t catch on; she also came earlier.

Is This Election Shaping the Future of Evangelicalism?

Evangelicals have cared about social justice for some decades now. While evangelicals will differ on many political issues, we’ve been relatively uniform about one area of justice: abortion. While a pro-life stance is rarely, if ever, included in statements of faith in evangelical organizations, there is a presumption that if you are an evangelical, you are pro-life. The same is true of sexuality and religious freedom, here and abroad. These are three examples of first-order social issues for evangelicals—social issues that are so important to evangelicals, they would eschew fellowship with those who don’t share their hunger and thirst for social righteousness in these areas.

What if you’re not as awesome as you think you are?

Perhaps a man is angry and harsh to his wife, but he doesn’t see it that way. He thinks he’s justified in the way he treats his wife. He’s “clean” in his own sight. Perhaps a woman regularly cuts corners at work and undermines her fellow workers, but she doesn’t see it that way. Her own self-estimation is that she is popular and loved among her co-workers. She doesn’t know how people really feel about her because she is “clean” in her own sight. Perhaps a man is emotionally absent from his children, but he doesn’t see it that way. He’s unaware that they are slipping away from him because he’s “clean” in his own sight.

Do Not Love the World

If you are among that number, you should direct your heart to Christ and seek him earnestly in his word. Peter said that we are born again through the living and abiding word of God (1 Peter 1:23). So if you want to be born again, you should pour over the word of God. You should cry to Christ that he open your eyes to know the Father (Matthew 11:27). You should plead with God to take out your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh that you might love God with all your heart and all your soul (Deuteronomy 30:6). You should forsake all known sins and give yourself to all the means of grace until the light dawns in your heart and Christ shines so bright in his power and love that he is irresistibly attractive and you fall in worship and love before him. And do not quit the pursuit until you have been born into new life. “You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart” (Jeremiah 29:13).
