Hillsong Church is Getting Its Own TV Network

Hillsong already has branches all over the world, but now the church is expanding its reach even farther. Hillsong Church is teaming up with Trinity Broadcasting Network to launch a new 24-hour TV network. The Hillsong Channel will launch to a global audience June 15, and will feature worship performances, messages from Christian leaders, conferences, documentaries, kids programs, talk shows and more. "This new aspect of the Hillsong global vision is unlike anything we have launched up to this point," Hillsong Pastor Brian Houston said in a statement. "It'll be a continuous, 24-7 feed that will be exalting Jesus and empowering people for every part of life."  In a statement, TBN Chairman Matthew Crouch said," This powerful new praise and worship network will offer an amazing opportunity for us to reach a whole new generation of viewers with the message of hope and grace as we partner with the most iconic and far-reaching presence in contemporary Christian music." The new network will be available through a variety of cable providers, including Direct TV, Fios, AT&T and Sky.

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.

The Greatest False Idol of Modern Christianity

So glad to see this article. This is truth, and I don't think many Christians in America realize how dominant the narrative of fear is. It literally drives almost all of the Evangelical culture. I'm saddened by it. I do think there is an argument to be made for "wisdom", but not fear. If the New Testament is correct, "perfect love drives out fear". We are to be people of love, of trust, of faith in the work of God, in the goodness of his Kingdom, and in overcoming evil with good. We are God's " new creation " that should no longer fear the primary tool of the empires of the world ---- death. Death has been defeated in and through the resurrection of the Son of God.

Three Gifts We Need, But Hate to Receive

Like the Israelites, we also have wayward hearts. We too run after idols and false lovers. We pursue experiences, things, and temporary pleasures we think will satisfy our longings. We seek to find our meaning, hope, and joy in things created rather than in the Creator. Though we don’t worship idols crafted of wood or stone, we do idolize money, family, work, success, comfort, and control. In grace, God often puts obstacles in our path to make our way difficult. They are not a form of punishment, but the discipline of a loving Father. These obstacles are intended to stop us, in love, so that we would repent and come back home to him.

How to Pray for the Syrian Refugee Crisis

While I read about the refugee crisis, I’m prompted to give and advocate, but I sometimes forget that prayer is a powerful way to help, as well. I can pray for peace. I can pray for protection. I can pray for our leaders to open their hearts and our borders to take in those fleeing unimaginable circumstances. I can pray for safety. I can pray for changed hearts. I can pray.

Hope on the Refugee Highway: A Special Report on Christians in Iraq and Greece

As winter approached, Christianity Today traveled to Iraq and Greece to witness how Christian leaders are working along the “refugee highway” that now stretches from the Middle East to Europe and North America. The situation is so complicated, and the risks so high, that leaders are torn between two aid strategies: should they help Christians and other minorities stay in their historic homelands, or should they help them journey to safer Western democracies?

What Your Emotions Are Trying to Tell You

We are so quick to judge, squelch or bottle up our emotions. We let others see our smile, but we hide our tears. We contain our anger and we ignore our loneliness. Instead, sit still in all your feelings and ask those tough questions about why you’re feeling a certain way. Pray like David did, “Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. Point out anything in me that offends you, and lead me along the path of everlasting life” (Psalm 139:23-24).

The Root of Mental Health

I hope you can see and feel the world in which my thoughts orbit. The issue is: What is the root of mental health? My answer is, God. Or seeing God as God and enjoying him as God, which involves being forgiven by God and welcomed with utterly free grace. I personally believe that these truths are hijacked when they are used to make self-esteem the root of mental health. The minor evangelical adjustments to the world’s way of making people happy on the way to hell are not radical enough for me.

Does Same-Sex Attraction Disqualify Someone from Ministry?

Fourth, Paul makes it clear that there remains a place for people who experience same-sex attraction in the church. In fact, he says that there are many who not only were attracted to the same sex but who practiced same-sex relations that are now washed in the blood of Christ. This probably does not mean that their attractions have totally faded away (any more than it might mean heterosexual attraction completely ceases to exist for those in Christ), but rather that they now fight any temptation stemming from these attractions by the power of the Spirit because they have been washed in the blood of Christ.

The Theology of Donald Trump

I am not a politician, but a minister who teaches theology.

It’s Officially Time to Redefine 'Evangelical'

While certainly, evangelicals have exerted influence on whatever society they find themselves in (think Luther, William Wilberforce, etc.), the politicization of American evangelicalism seems to have formalized in the early 1980s with the founding of the political group "The Moral Majority." The group’s purpose was to consolidate voters who share an ethical outlook similar to the judeo-Christian tradition in order to influence the moral direction of the U.S. through the political process. It’s tough to tell exactly when the term “evangelical” itself began melting, but this election season, it's clear the the word means little more than a lazy demographic category for non-progressive people who aren’t atheists.

10 Commandments of Apologetics | New York Apologetics

When I first began my apologetic ministry, I learned the hard way—as probably many of you did—that possessing apologetic knowledge and the ability to answer the tough questions does not qualify someone as a good apologist. It’s also necessary to engage unbelievers in such a way that they will give us a fair hearing—that they will listen, understand, and seriously consider our perspective. In this article, I’ll lay out the do’s and don’ts of good apologetics. On the “do” side are the principles of sound apologetic tactics. On the “don’t” side are the pitfalls of poor apologetics—things to avoid. Together they provide the ground rules of effective apologetic evangelism. I call these principles the ten commandments of apologetics. 1

5 really bad reasons Christians avoid apologetics

Congratulations. You passed the first hurdle. Having seen the word 'apologetics' in the title, you still managed to read this far! To put it mildly, apologetics has a bad image. Indeed, such a bad image that at Solas we prefer to use the term 'persuasive evangelism' because apologetics either carries the notion of saying sorry for being a Christian, or of some male geeky nerd pontificating on the teleological argument. Like all caricatures there is some element of truth in this, but it is overall grossly unfair. It's time to rescue apologetics from this particular cul-de-sac and instead realise the usefulness of the apologia (defence) of the Gospel, in proclaiming the Good News in today's needy world. So lets look at some of the objections that stop Christians even considering apologetics in the first place.

How Your Habits Show and Shape Your Heart

The power of habit not only keeps us from the folly of bad decisions; it can also transform spiritual exercises, like Bible meditation and prayer, from exhausting ourselves with Martha’s tiring exertions to coming alive through Mary’s life-giving receptions of grace (Luke 10:38–42). If we had to learn Bible meditation and prayer all over again each time we engaged, we’d be continually distracted, anxious, and troubled by our own doing. But forming good habits can make Bible intake and prayer into opportunities to sit at Jesus’s feet, and listen to his voice, and choose the good portion that will never be taken away.

26 Love No Matter What - Biola University

Jesus challenges his followers to do something that is never easy and always countercultural: love your enemies (Matt. 5:44). And in today’s polarized world, where entrenched battle lines are drawn on issues ranging from sex to politics to race, the call to love the “other side,” no matter what, is harder than ever.

Risen and the Apologetics of Love - www.ThePoachedEgg.net/mobile

Risen tells the story of Clavius, a Roman tribune in Jerusalem whom Pontius Pilate tasks with finding the missing body of the crucified Jesus (called “Yeshua the Nazarene” in the film, using his Hebrew name). Most reviewers have described the movie as a kind of CSI-style detective story. That description certainly captures the tone of the first half of the film, which focuses on Clavius’s investigation. Clavius, along with his right-hand man Lucius, interviews witnesses, gathers evidence, and tracks down Jesus’ disciples. Rumor has it that Jesus has risen from the dead, though Claudius is as skeptical as a modern-day police detective. Yet for a detective story, there isn’t a lot of mystery, since we the audience already know that Jesus is indeed risen. (It is in the title of the movie, after all!) The suspense is more about what it will take to convince Clavius to accept the Resurrection.

Why I Was Not Pro-Life

I can take a few minutes to engage with my government regarding my unborn neighbors and their parents, believing with all my heart that every life is valuable and that God himself wields the gavel and holds the clock, while I am free to simply speak the truth in love to those with ears to hear — and I never know who they may be. People look on the outward appearance, but “the Lord looks on the heart” (1 Samuel 16:7).

How Intellectual Christians Can Fit in with the Evangelical Church

There are times when I’ve felt alone because I’ve sensed that other Christians are not interested in what I find fascinating. In those times, I’ve reached out to some of the great Christian thinkers of the past for solace, encouragement, and inspiration. For example, when I read Augustine, Pascal, and C. S. Lewis, I gain the sense that I know them and that I’m part of their great conversation about ideas such as truth, goodness, and beauty. These three Christian authors write in such a way that I often feel they somehow know me and are writing to me. As an introvert I find it much easier to pick up a book than to introduce myself to someone I don’t know. Reading the writings of some of Christianity’s most reflective thinkers gives me a special sense of community that crosses the centuries.

42
The Gender Conversation We Aren’t Having

Secondly, the church. While complementarian/egalitarian labels can be helpful when discussing women’s ordination, in the pragmatic realities of ministry, these labels aren’t clear-cut either. I am a female priest, so my church may rightly be called “egalitarian.” Still, according to some—like Anglican priest John Stott, for instance—my ordination fits in a complementarian view since I serve under the authority of a male bishop. Other complementarians see female pastorship or priesthood of any sort as impermissible. But the categories become more complex and blurry if we ask about women teaching adult Sunday School, leading worship, writing books, preaching at conferences , speaking at church gatherings, or heading parachurch groups.

And please know, your child does not have to be one of those “on fire for the Lord” kids to attend.  In fact, many students who attend are questioning their faith, they’re struggling to discover their purpose in life, and are asking those very tough questions.  And why shouldn’t they? The culture, many of their peers, and even some of their teachers openly question Christianity or deny that there’s such a thing as truth.

46 Renewing Your Mind | A Catalyst for Confession | March 16, 2016

In his first epistle to the Corinthians, the Apostle Paul tells his readers that "Christ, our Passover lamb, has been sacrificed" (1 Cor. 5:7). We find the background to this saying in the book of Exodus. In Exodus 12, God gives Moses the instructions for the Passover ceremony that will distinguish Israel from Egypt. God tells Moses that this month will now be the first month of the year for Israel (v. 2). This night will commemorate Israel's birth as a nation. Each household is to take a lamb without blemish and keep it until the fourteenth day of the month, at which point it shall be killed (vv. 3–6). The lamb's blood is then to be placed on the doorposts and lintel of the houses, and the families in the houses are to eat the roasted flesh of the lamb (vv. 7–11). God tells Moses that on this night He will pass through Egypt and strike down the firstborn of the Egyptians, but He will pass over the houses marked with the sign of the lamb's blood (vv. 12–13). The Passover lamb becomes a substitute for Israel, God's firstborn son (cf. 4:22). As such it is a type of the coming Messiah who also dies as a substitute for His people.

47
Heaven Isn’t Heaven Unless It’s Focused on Jesus

Not to be too Calvinistic on this, but God does know who will be saved, and who has a heart that desires to know Him. It’s not too much to think that God will send someone to them to preach the Gospel. Even if God has to teleport someone in like Phillip to do it. We haven’t heard it done since NT times, but who’s to say it hasn’t happened since? I think we will be surprised to see people who we think never heard the Gospel be in Heaven, because they did seek God, and God in His mercy sent someone to preach the Gospel. And for people who lived prior to the Gospel, well if God revealed Himself to Abraham and others, why could not God reveal Himself to others who also sought Him? The Bible doesn’t contain ALL history and all the acts of God on the earth. Just the ones He felt were important for us to know about.

Why God Doesn't Reduce the Evil in the World?

The invention of the automobile was a pivotal moment in human history. The locomotive had been around for nearly 100 years and was instrumental in moving people and goods long distances. But the fact that locomotives ran on rails didn't make it functional for short trips to varying destinations. People still had to rely on horses or horse-drawn buggies. When the mass-produced automobile debuted, it changed everything. People had significantly more freedom once they owned an automobile. They could choose to go where they wished at any time they wished. They could take luggage and supplies with them. Roads, being much cheaper to build and maintain than rails, also began to appear everywhere and highways stretched across the country opening up even more opportunities. Of course, as the number of drivers increased, the number of accidents increased as well. Cars could be dangerous, especially to pedestrians. If cars were placed on tracks, the number of fatalities could have been decreased, but doing so would defeat the purpose of the automobile. A car on rails is an amusement park attraction, not an automobile.
