The Resurrection of Jesus Christ: Infallible Proofs

Christians can have the utmost confidence in the death, burial, and Resurrection of Jesus since God’s Word accurately tells us about these historical events. These central truths of the Christian faith were also witnessed by hundreds of people. Jesus was publicly executed on a Cross, buried in Joseph’s tomb ( Mark 15:42–47 ), and seen alive again by more than 500 people at the same time. The post-Resurrection appearances of Jesus are infallible proofs that He conquered death and God’s Word the infallible proof of the event in our world today. Our next article in the series will look at several other pieces of evidence related to the Resurrection, which will be followed by several articles examining many of the alternative views developed by critics and skeptics to explain away the Resurrection.

The Christian Reason to Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day

We’ve all heard the phrase “When in Rome, do as the Romans do.” But in this day within the Church, it was more like “When anywhere, do as the Romans do.” At a time when a priest’s primary job was to serve those within the faith, Patrick made it his focus to spend time with, love and influence those who were outside the faith. Ultimately, Patrick was brought to trial for his unconventional methods and missionary approach.

The meeting was reported in New Scientist magazine

Eight Steps to Christian Maturity

When they come around, edify and minister to your church family like you would if your non-Christian friends were not there. Just be you. Don’t put on a show. Be edifying. Love one another. They will see something noticeably different from what they’re used to. They’ll witness a heavenly love. They’ll get a little taste of the powerful effects of the gospel. No other community on earth shares life like the Christian church.

4 Bad Reasons Christians Call Each Other ‘Heretics’

All they know is they want her gone, and any reasonable refute only confuses them. So, what’s the easiest way to deal with the situation? Call her a witch.

The Spiritual Reason We’re Drawn to Disney Remakes

But there can also come a time when Disney’s obsession with our nostalgia can appear to be exploitation, or at least an excuse to avoid taking risks on new ideas. And because Disney has built a reputation on enriching the values of our culture, these arguably uninspiring remakes can often seem disingenuous and even a bit frivolous in the midst of a challenging and uncertain moment in time for the world. A time when people are yearning for art to help them process what’s going on around them.

Why I Have Mixed Feelings About Rod Dreher’s Benedict Option | The Stream

I’m not a biblical or any other kind of scholar but I retain the impressions and impacts of my reading and hearing. I don’t know this journalist but these reports are leading me to investigate. I have to say I agree with you about the fall and rise of America. I know the truth of Americans having let the mission creep of the radicals tear away the fabric of unity of these United States, but I believe that God is the greatest power, not these angry lemmings. I, like hopefully thousands of others like me, have overcome the abuses of the religions of my childhood and returned to God to find many churches have turned from the old condemning judgmental ways to kindness, forgiveness and espousing the true love; the grace of God. I know saving America seems like a long shot, but if not America then who? We are the only nation in the world founded on religious liberty for all. I remember hearing stories in the Bible besides the obvious David and Goliath about God evening the odds for His chosen outcomes by miraculous wins on the field of war against His children. Insurmountable just means God gets to show off a little and when He flexes His muscle; then there will be no doubt where the miracles come from.

The Briefing 03-17-17 -

As Solomon warned, “Of making many books there is no end” (Ecc 12:12). There is no way to read everything, and not everything deserves to be read. I say that in order to confront the notion that anyone, anywhere, can master all that could be read with profit. I read a great deal, and a large portion of my waking hours are devoted to reading.

Who Was St. Patrick?

We now celebrate St. Patrick’s Day each year on the anniversary of his death, March 17. Originally, this was strictly an Irish feast day in the Roman Catholic Church to commemorate the patron saint of Ireland. However, Irish immigrants coming to North America brought the tradition with them, and it is now widely celebrated each year. Sadly, few people remember the devoted missionary who stands behind the St. Patrick’s Day tradition.

28 Westminster at the Movies

“'He is risen!’–three words that change everything. This wonderfully good news that was first announced to the women at the Empty Tomb is still being declared boldly in the Middle East by the Risen King’s messengers! Dispatches from the Front goes into this region of centuries-old darkness and division that is now overshadowed by the fierce violence of ISIS terror. Yet, the Gospel is powerfully at work in the Middle East, and Christ is building His Church there just as He said He would. Neither the gates of hell nor the gates of Islam can withstand the work of our Risen King! From mega-cities in Arabia to refugee camps left in the wake of ISIS terror, The Fourth Man goes beyond the headlines to showcase the Gospel’s power to save, the mercy and love of believers, and their abiding joy as Christ walks through the fires of persecution with them”

'This Is Us' Captures the Drama of Unfolding Redemption

This Is Us flirts with melodrama at times, but the show understands what it means to be fallen, to live in world in which horrible things are both intended and incidental. No characters are spared from suffering, and all of them carry the weight of their worst decisions. For instance, when Randall confronts Rebecca about the fact that she had contact with his biological father, her face twists under the agony of her own regret, and she desperately reaches out to her son for a reprieve, aching to give up the ghost that has haunted her for his entire life. Kevin and Randall, meanwhile, attempt to build a cordial sibling relationship, but their old rivalries immediately flare up. They find themselves arguing like children on the sidewalks of New York, and ultimately wrestling each other to the ground as onlookers film the spectacle. Jack, Kate, and Randall’s birth father, William, with varied success, fight their own monsters of addiction. There is no whitewashing of sins in This Is Us —evil comes with a vengeance, haunting every ordinary person.

St. Patrick Calls All Christians to be the Missionaries of this Age | The Stream

Patrick did not fear the Druids who occupied Ireland. They fostered a culture hostile to Christianity. He knew the power of the Holy Spirit and the Word of God. We face our own Druids in the secularist “progressives” of this age. However, we have the same Holy Spirit and Word of God. The only difference is our response to the call.

Remember Saint Patrick

Deep beneath much of what the day has become is the inspiring mission of Patrick pioneering the gospel among an unreached people, despite the frowning face of the church establishment. Saint Patrick’s Day, in its truest meaning, is not about avoiding the lost, but bringing them good news. It turns out Saint Paddy’s Day really is for the pagans.

A Critical Care Surgeon Meets the Great Physician

As I wrestled with these thoughts, paramedics rushed in with a 15-year-old boy dying from a gunshot wound. They were performing compressions to force oxygen-rich blood to his brain. In a blur of adrenaline, I grasped a scalpel and surgically explored his chest. I cupped his still heart and searched its borders with trembling fingers. When my hand plunged into a yawning hole, I caught my breath. The bullet had torn open his aorta. We could not save him.

But after an intense investigation lasting nearly two years, the evidence points to "the truth of Jesus Christ" and he accepts Christ as his savior.

ABC's '20/20' Contacted Me for 'Gay Conversion Therapy' Story, But Ignored What I Told Them

I was one of the licensed therapists the ABC producers contacted for background and possible inclusion in the show. One of the producers actually asked me if I could refer him to a therapist that took the position that homosexuality was morally wrong and would practice gay conversion therapy. When I told him that's not what ethical, licensed therapists do, he asked me if I could refer him to a therapist that did. At that point, I confronted the producer and told him it was clear he was trying to manufacture a story that didn't exist.

Reasons To Believe : Science Journals and Creation Ex Nihilo

Where everyone seems to agree is that the beginning of our universe requires the existence of something that can generate the universe! In order to prevent an infinite regress of things, these models posit something that simply exists (without a beginning). Stated in more philosophical terms, these “somethings” are self-existent because their existence does not depend on anything else. Additionally, these self-existent things also have the capacity to cause other things (like universes) to exist. In other words, they are causal agents. All these models purport to explain the entirety of the universe in a self-contained manner. However, this means they must provide an account of why we can think about a universe that cannot think about us. Even atheistic philosophers acknowledge the incredible difficulty of this task and some argue that to get consciousness, you must start with consciousness . If so, this means that the something responsible for our universe is a self-existent, causal, conscious agent. Call it what you want, but that is starting to sound a lot like the God described in the Bible.

The Devil Knows How to Discourage You

But God knows this about us, and his many commands that we “magnify him with thanksgiving” (Psalm 69:30), “come into his presence with thanksgiving” (Psalm 95:2), “sing to [him] with thanksgiving” (Psalm 147:7), pray “with thanksgiving” (Philippians 4:6), eat “with thanksgiving” (1 Timothy 4:3), indeed, “give thanks in all circumstances” (1 Thessalonians 5:18) are not intended as guilt-ridden reminders of how ungrateful we are. Rather, these commands are prescriptions written by the Good Physician to help us escape from chronic bouts of discouragement.

The Real St. Patrick

Patrick was 16 years old in about the year 405, when he was captured in a raid and became a slave in what was still radically pagan Ireland. Far from home, he clung to the religion he had ignored as a teenager. Even though his grandfather had been a priest, and his father a town councilor, Patrick "knew not the true God." But forced to tend his master's sheep in Ireland, he spent his six years of bondage mainly in prayer. He escaped at the suggestion of a dream and returned home.

Do We Really Need Musical Worship?

So, it doesn’t seem at all surprising to me that over the centuries Christians would come together to corporately express the infinite value of God by lifting their voices and lifting their hearts in song about his worth, and that they would crave to hear the voice of God heralded from his word. Of course, lots more could be said about why we do what we do in worship. But that is pretty much why I feel so at home today in worship services like this, provided — this is a huge provision — provided the preaching and the singing are radically God-centered, Christ-exalting, gospel-rich, Bible-saturated, singable, and authentic through and through.

Rumors of Adam’s Demise: One More and Counting

I’ve skipped over most of the details in Venema’s four chapters. Please read them yourself; they’re well written, refreshingly clear, and always interesting. I suspect he lights up the classroom. He certainly excels when explaining complex scientific concepts; one or two spots may be tough going for the average reader, but in the main, genetic science comes across as a thrilling field. I agree with Venema that the scientific case against Adam and Eve is impressive. If that were all we had, I too might be persuaded.

CrossExamined Radio | Was Jesus offensive?

In this show, Frank and his guest J. Warner Wallace discuss the following topics: • What does it mean to be Christ-like? • Was Jesus a pacifist? • Are Christians ever permitted to be angry? Paul says be angry yet do not sin? • Jesus says if you’re angry with you brother you will be judged. Yet Jesus got a whip and drove out the moneychangers… Twice! So there’s some tension there. Show is rebroadcast Sunday at 5 pm ET | It is also archived on iTunes.
