Philippians 2:4: Look to the Interests of Others

Although Satan tries to persuade us otherwise, believing God when he tells us to look to others’ interests doesn’t force us to look away from our own joy.

A Case for the Bible 101: Manuscript Evidence, Part 2 – How has the Old Testament been transmitted over time?

Disconnect Between Apologetics and the Small Church

I’m always struck by the realization that apologetics is such a little known field of Christian study every time that I mention the name of an apologist that I think everyone should know to a pastor type and they just stare at me like I’m from outer space. It’s both a surprise and an epiphany when that happens. It’s surprising that the people that I listen to everyday and are so well known in apologetics circles are so undiscovered in the Christian culture. It’s an epiphany to suddenly realize that these folks are dancing on glass that’s’ cracking under their own weight and they don’t even know it.

Why Generation Z is less Christian than ever -- and why that's good news

Many Christian teens are simply unprepared for the world that is waiting for them. With the best of intentions, we bubble wrap our kids and create Disney World–like environments for them in our churches, and then wonder why they have no resilience in faith or life. Students are entertained but not prepared. They’ve had a lot of fun but are not ready to lead. When the pressure to conform is turned up, Christian teenagers tend to wilt if they do not have the confidence that only comes from knowing why they believe what they believe. As one teenager told me, “following Jesus today is hard because sometimes you feel like the only one.”

Science and God

“Science has buried God!” an atheist friend remarked to me. That’s a claim I hear ever more frequently in the media, online, or on the lips of celebrity atheists. A few years ago I had the chance to interview one of the UK’s leading atheists, Dr. Peter Atkins of Oxford University, who put it bluntly: “Science gives you the promise of understanding while you’re alive. Religion offers the prospect of understanding when you’re dead.”

My Email Exchange with Yahoo News! | Eric Metaxas

Q. You wrote in your book “If You Can Keep It” about the need for virtuous citizens, and you defined virtue as the willingness to sacrifice personal interests for the common good. This seems central to how different people interpret Trump, and to why many white evangelical Trump voters feel the need to defend him as president, because criticizing him feels like acknowledging that voting for him was actually an act of self-preservation that hurt the rest of the country. What do you think of that? Have you engaged much with John Fea’s critique of your book? He makes a persuasive argument that you have airbrushed the American founding into an airbrushed version that exaggerates the role of Christianity as the sole source of virtue (not one of several), that exaggerates the extent to which there was religious liberty at the founding (Seamus Hasson’s “Right to Be Wrong” is best I’ve read on this topic), and treats the American experiment as more of a miracle detached from anything before it than it was. Fea writes that America built on the democratic principles at play in British life, which is something of a subtle point, but an interesting one which tempers exuberance over American exceptionalism as some kind of divinely ordered miracle.

This Is Apologetics: An Argument from Christian Hypocrisy

The objection that Christians are hypocrites, and therefore Christianity must be false, borrows from the very Christian worldview. By presupposing objective morality, the objection presupposes the very God it aims to disprove.

Why Shouldn't We Trust the Non-Canonical Gospel Attributed to John? | Cold Case Christianity

Where (and Why) Does It Differ from the Reliable Accounts? The Apocryphon of John is concerned primarily with an account of the creation of the world. The text was discovered in the Nag Hammadi library as the first document in a series of Sethian Gnostic texts and it includes the most detailed Sethian creation mythology. The role and position of Jesus in the Godhead is very different from orthodox canonical descriptions as a result of the presuppositions of Sethians who wrote this text. Sethian believers appear to have accepted the historicity of Jesus but attempted to place Him within their preconceived Sethian beliefs.

The Reason Why Few Christians Are Willing to Be Christian Case Makers

Since writing Cold-Case Christianity , my speaking schedule has been extremely busy; I am blessed by opportunities to make the case for Christianity every weekend in churches across the nation. As a result, however, I get to see how many of my Christian brothers and sisters are interested in the evidence supporting their faith. I must tell you, the interest in Christian case making is thin , at best. In a typical church, about ten percent of the congregation is usually concerned enough about “apologetics” to attend a training session or conference. My fellow speakers and traveling case makers report the same interest wherever they go, and if you are among the few Christians who are actively studying or making the case, you know what I am talking about first-hand . Why are so few Christians willing to be Christian case makers? The one thing most of us lack is the very thing that made me successful as a cold-case detective: a desire to work hard and do whatever it takes to master the material.

Is Christianity Shrinking in America? Yes and No | The Stream

In my case, although I was raised in a Catholic family, I felt “driven out”, and fled into atheism until my 40th year, when God Himself witnessed to me (I was so virulent that no one would witness to me, but there was one young woman who, although lacking the courage to witness to me, cared enough to beat the doors of Heaven into powder and pulp with her prayers until God could take no more and did the witnessing job Himself). I used to ask Him what my particular role was, and would get a one-word reply that would always leave me fighting tears, because it was not what I wanted to hear, that one word indicating that I would likely account for zero converts. That one-word reply, though, was recently confirmed when a new coworker, while speaking with me, asked God what MY life verse is.

Listen. It’s a Ministry.

Have you considered the ministry of listening? The very word “ministry” conjures up images of preaching, teaching, writing, talking, and counseling. But to minister to someone is simply to serve and love them. And a quiet, neglected, little-talked-about way we serve and love others is by listening to them. By “listening” I don’t mean simply not talking. We can avoid talking for any number of reasons, even anger or withdrawal. By “listening” I mean something proactive, not passive. True listening absorbs. It doesn’t sit back; it leans in. Real listening is as mentally engaging as talking. Consider those few times in your life when you really felt listened to. Didn’t you feel loved ? Didn’t you leave that conversation more buoyant, more alive, more human? To listen to someone, to really listen, is to break out of the prison of self-referentiality where we all tend to live. It’s to get out of yourself—to leave Self behind. It’s to hear what another says and resist the instinctive urge to map it on to your own experiences and interpret accordingly. It’s far more than an auditory phenomenon; it’s to shift your focus from Self to another, to step into their reality, to bear their life with them.

But God says he will work good out of the bad things in life if you will trust him. When you come to him and say, “God, I give you all the pieces of my life,” he will return peace for your pieces. His peace in your heart comes from realizing that even if you don’t understand the hurt in your life, you can still forgive, knowing that God will use that pain for good.

How Do You Talk to Kids About God? Interview with Author Natasha Crain.

CRAIN: Without a doubt, the most important question I think parents need to discuss with their kids today is, “What evidence is there for God’s existence?” While the percent of atheists in America remains under 10 percent (by most estimates), it’s growing quickly and many atheists are particularly vocal about their disdain for Christians and other theists. I’d say an overwhelming majority of faith challenges encountered today are rooted in the fundamental question of whether or not God exists, yet this is a question most parents don’t know how to tackle with their kids other than by sharing their own personal experiences. The first six chapters of Talking with Your Kids about God are devoted to this question. Some key points parents should learn to discuss are:

Should Non-Christians Lead Worship?

Imagine, in the spirit of Matthew 7:21–23, the tragedy of the unbelieving musician standing before the Lord on the last day. Imagine hearing him say, “But Lord, I played music for the church.” It may not feel pleasant to explain to a non-Christian musician why they cannot play their instrument for the worship service, but it is a pure kindness to help them avoid hearing those final words of condemnation.

Is Oprah Right on Psalm 37:4?

Now I think the relationship is, yes, cause-effect, but more than cause-effect. I think delighting yourself in the Lord is what shapes the desires of your heart so that it will be good for you for God to grant them. In other words, there are a lot of desires in our hearts that are impure and unwise, and this is not a promise that, if you delight in God, then you get all those evil desires in your heart. And the best way to bring the desires of our hearts into conformity with God is to put all of our energy and all of our effort into enjoying God himself. When we enjoy God, not just his gifts, but God himself, then the desires of our heart are shaped, are defined and created, in accord with our delight in him.

How Will Hollywood Handle the Spiritual Themes in ‘A Wrinkle in Time?’

Despite ongoing obstacles, Hand didn’t give up her quest to bring the film to the silver screen. It’s a big story, after all—galaxy-jumping is no trifle and deserves big effects. But its themes are also, as Hand is well aware, cosmic. “My curiosity about a spiritual life absolutely was one of the driving forces behind why I did what I did for 30 years,” she told me. “When I was a young girl, my mother said, I used to wake her up in the morning around five to make sure we weren’t late for church. So there must’ve been something in me that was always drawn to faith.” She went on to say, “I think I had an understanding of what God was from a 10-year-old point of view, which deepened when I got to know Madeleine, who expanded my views.”

All We Need Is the Rhythm Divine

By looking at our lives in broad strokes, we should be able to see whether our cadences are godly. The benefit of a broad overview is that we don’t have to exegete details; a snapshot is enough. The big picture usually does not deceive because we see leanings, tendencies, and habits. If we have not been a part of Christian community for years, then we do not prize fellowship. If we have not read the Bible in months, then we do not value Scripture. If we have not prayed in many seasons, we don’t really have a relationship with God. If we don’t give to the work of missions, then we don’t have a missional heart. If we incessantly think about getting ahead in the marketplace, then that, too, tells a story. A diagnostic analysis can teach us which way our hearts are leaning and what the rhythms of our lives are.

They pay more than the minimum hourly wage for ninety minutes of demonic scenes that will haunt their memories for decades. And, they tolerate kids killing kids—on film—and take their kids to watch.

Chances are if you are reading this blog post then you are interested in apologetics at some level. Also, it could be that you consider yourself an apologist and love to teach this stuff. But we have all run into THE PROBLEM!!! That is, the local church doesn't share our same passion for Apologetics and even looks at it with disdain. The leaders are skeptical, or even hostile, to the idea of having it taught at church. At this point we are lost at what to do next.

How Apologetics Can Fuel the Spiritual Disciplines | Stand to Reason

This is not to say our conviction of the truth of Christianity comes entirely from apologetics. I don’t think that’s the case. The Holy Spirit removes the spiritual obstacles preventing us from seeing the truth of Christianity. We see the glory of God and His Gospel directly in His revelation and recognize its reality. God reveals Himself to be trustworthy over time as He works in our lives. But as long as we are living as fallen creatures, we will have to combat our tendency to wander with reminders of the truth.
