Training Day | RZIM Europe

‘Religion poisons everything’ (Christopher Hitchens) Religion appears to be the root cause of many of the problems we see in the world around us today. It not only seems to inspire normal people to do terrible things, like the terrorist attacks we see happening in Europe, but it has also been used to justify all kinds of abhorrent behaviour, from sexism and racism, to slavery and genocide. This intolerance is bad enough, but some would say that the worst thing about religion is that it encourages irrational thought, as well as an anti-scientific attitude. It is no wonder so many people appeal to the sentiments of John Lennon’s song, ‘Imagine’, which asks to us think of a better world that is free from religion.

Jesus Didn't Become God; the Earliest Christians Believed Him to Be Divine

In his excellent new book, God Among Sages, Kenneth Samples has done a wonderful job in combining an apologetic showing the Gospel accounts reflect the historic person of Jesus of Nazareth and how the Jesus of the Gospels is markedly different from the founders of Eastern religions, such as Krishna, who was also thought to be a god taking on human form. The comparison is interesting, especially considering the charge made by many modern skeptics that the Christian belief of Jesus as God incarnate was foreign to Jesus's first followers and only grew as a later addition to the new religion. Bart Ehrman's book How Jesus Became God is one such challenge. Samples answers it well when he writes: But just what did the earliest Christians believe about the nature and person of Jesus Christ? A major textual breakthrough over the last couple of decades has al1owed scholars to see more dearly what the earliest Christians believed about Jesus Christ, particularly as expressed in their church services. Biblical scholarship (in this case, a type of form criticism) has discovered primitive Jewish-Christian creeds, confessions, and hymns woven into Scripture.

What Is the Unique Worldview of Students Today? Interview with Dr. Jeff Myers.

MYERS: I think it’s a huge, huge mistake when people say that. Apologetics and worldview training are more important than ever—and students seem to engage with them more than ever. It is different, though. They need to know how their thoughts and feelings fit with how God created reality. They won’t engage unless it affects them personally. They won’t engage unless they can imagine how they can be credible talking with their friends. They won’t engage unless they feel safe—that the adults in their lives really care and won’t be scared off when they hear about what they’re really dealing with. They won’t engage unless they have a chance to talk and ask questions as well as process new information.

The Gospel of James: Open Letter to Martin Luther

Apart from simply tracing the gospel-word concept through this key section in chapter 1, we should note good-news revelations made of God and his good-news promises. Consider just the specific expressions of grace to weary souls in chapter 1. For those lacking wisdom, God “gives generously to all without reproach” (James 1:5). To the one who keeps the faith in trial, “he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him” (James 1:12). “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change” (James 1:17).

Does One Need To Investigate Every Religion Before One Can Conclude That Christianity Is True? - Cross Examined - Christian Apologetic Ministry | Frank Turek | Christian Apologetics | Christian Apologetics Speakers

One does not need to weigh up the arguments pro and con for every single possible alternative that is out there in order to conclude that a certain hypothesis best explains the available data. When multiple independent lines of evidence converge on a single given hypothesis, other possibilities are by nature excluded and it becomes unnecessary to investigate every conceivable candidate hypothesis before one can reach a proper judgment. Of course, one should always be open to the possibility that one’s judgment is mistaken and be prepared to revise conclusions should new information come to light. But one certainly does not need to investigate the tens of thousands of competing religious propositional claims that are out there in order to conclude that Christianity makes sense of the pertinent available data. Moreover, the claim that one has to investigate every religious proposition in order to assert any religious position backfires on the atheist, for it renders it impossible to draw any religious conclusions — including atheism .

Complaining Never Wins the Culture

Of course, there are some dangers of which we’re all very aware and conscious. In a pluralistic world, we know the pressure on Christians to abandon the truth that Jesus is the only way to God, so we proclaim loudly the exclusive salvation that we find in Christ. In the midst of a moral revolution, we see the temptation for Christians to deny or downplay the truth about sexuality and marriage, so we rightly seek to defend the Bible’s teaching on these issues.

Cracking The Movie Code On The Case For Christ

It was a September Sunday morning in 2015 when my friend Lee Strobel raised the idea of adapting his best-selling, non-fiction book, The Case for Christ , into a movie.  We were chewing the fat together at Mission Hills Church in Littleton, CO, following the service at which he had just spoken.  It had been a few years since we had last seen each other and I had gone to hear him give the weekend message for old time’s sake.  When he broached the film, I wagged my head enthusiastically and said “absolutely.”  Truth is, I’d be happy just digging a ditch with Lee Strobel – let alone make a movie about him.

12 Evidences for the Resurrection of Jesus, Part 2

Is (talking about death and Jesus’ resurrection) a probative philosophical way of approaching evangelism? Yes, asking someone their thoughts about what happens when we die can provide information on how to best present the Gospel to them. If they believe death is the end of our existence, you can try to appeal to our innate longings for love, purpose, and justice, and how death (and the eventual expiration of the universe) don’t resolve mankind’s longings. If they believe there is some type of afterlife, the discussion can move into the nature of God and His power to create, and how we as imperfect finite beings can possibly be unified to that eternal purity. If they have a working knowledge of the Bible, you can hone in on their willingness to believe all of it, the evidence in support of it and the progressive revelation it contains regarding the history of Israel leading to the arrival of Jesus, finalizing God’s message of salvation by grace alone through faith in Christ alone.

Is there room in the middle to recognize our differences and grow together? Listen to this week's spirited discussion.

Lent Should Still Matter to Christians

The first time I observed Lent over 10 years ago, I attended an Ash Wednesday service. Ashes were applied to my head and words were spoken over me, “Remember you are dust and to dust you shall return.” I learned in a new way that I am a mere mortal, and at same time created in the image of God. In that moment, something new in my soul began to grow. At the same time, it was, for me, a difficult time of coming to grips with my brokenness, staring at my sin and searching my heart.

Couldn’t God Have Used Evolution?

I am fairly at a loss to comprehend how anyone, for a moment, can doubt that Christian theology must stand or fall with the historical trustworthiness of the Jewish Scriptures. The very conception of the Messiah, or Christ, is inextricably interwoven with Jewish history; the identification of Jesus of Nazareth with that Messiah rests upon the interpretation of the passages of the Hebrew Scriptures which have no evidential value unless they possess the historical character assigned to them. If the covenant with Abraham was not made; if circumcision and sacrifices were not ordained by Jahveh; if the ‘ten words’ were not written by God’s hand on the stone tables; if Abraham is more or less a mythical hero, such as Theseus; the Story of the Deluge a fiction; that of the Fall a legend; and that of the Creation the dream of a seer; if all these definite and detailed narratives of apparently real events have no more value as history than have the stories of the regal period of Rome—what is to be said about the Messianic doctrine, which is so much less clearly enunciated: And

Weary Mom, Come to Me

If we are thirsty, we don’t head to the oven to find something to quench our thirst. No, we run to the faucet. We find a water source that will meet our need. Similarly, if we are dead, dry, and weary, we don’t run to a desert land of self-pity and work-harder. No, we run to Jesus who says, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to me and drink” (John 7:37). He invites us to come because he is the only source that will provide true and lasting satisfaction. He refreshes and meets our deepest needs.

‘Song to Song’ Is Cinematic Wisdom Literature

“I thought we could just roll and tumble, live from song to song, kiss to kiss,” says Rooney Mara in the line which gives the film its title. Mara plays Faye, a restless hipster trying to make it in the Austin music scene. Like many in her generation, she is “desperate to feel,” open to anything (“I told myself any experience is better than no experience.”), and prefers brokenness to boredom (“I loved the pain. It felt like life.”). She experiences the pangs of transcendence in a secular age, desiring “to escape from every tie, every hold… to go up higher.” Her search for bird-like freedom (no surprise for Malick fans: birds are a major presence in the film) leads her to a meandering existence—not unlike an eclectic Spotify playlist—with nothing but mood and whim to guide her choices.

How Singleness Can Testify to the Gospel of Grace | Stand to Reason

By foregoing marriage now, singleness is a way of both anticipating this reality and testifying to its goodness. It’s a way of saying this future reality is so certain that we can live according to it now. If marriage shows us the shape of the gospel, singleness shows us its sufficiency. It’s a way of declaring to a world obsessed with sexual and romantic intimacy that these things are not ultimate, and that in Christ we possess what is.

Do You Trust Disney with Your Kids?

Nor is it news that homosexuality has been, and will continue to be, normalized in our society. Disney is not the big bad wolf here in our society’s collective storybooks. Increasingly, it’s Christians who are viewed as the weirdos and bad guys. Genuine believers in Jesus are more and more in the minority, and it’s time for us to stop acting like we think it’s the mass media’s job to cater to us. Our calling as exiles is to go into every movie, song, book, and conversation with our eyes open. We shouldn’t become outraged because of the words of a director, likely looking for publicity, stirred up controversy about his new film. More importantly, we should care more about impacting and shaping the culture we’re in, rather than pharisaically wagging our fingers at it.

Now the biblical worldview, we need to remind ourselves, does not argue that there is no biological dimension to this. But the biblical worldview tells us that after sin has affected all of creation, after what we read in terms of Genesis 3, that biology itself reflects fallen creation, not the creation that God intended from the beginning. How do we know what God’s intention is? Well, God tells us, he tells us in Genesis 1 and again in Genesis 2: in his image, we are told, he created them; male and female he created us. So male and female was God’s intention, and you’ll notice that is a binary, very clearly, an essential distinction between male and female that was a part of God’s creative purpose from the beginning and that means that displays his glory in all of creation.
