5 Reasons To Stop Calling Dads Of Unborn Babies A 'Father To Be'

Not that I have yet made sacrifices to rival those of my wife, but I, too, see this language as an attack on my vocation. I work a full-time job as the sole breadwinner in our house now that my wife is pregnant, simultaneously maintaining high marks and a full school schedule. All of this is a life I have chosen for the sake of my wife and son — it is my responsibility to protect and provide for my pre-born child. When people refer to a father who is working hard to provide for his partner’s comfort and to prepare for the birth of their child as a “father-to-be,” it devalues the vocation of father that he has already taken upon himself.

4 Cold Case Christianity

In this blast from the past, J. Warner finishes his examination of the ancient non-canonical writings to see what they say about Jesus. In this episode, J. Warner examines some of the better known (and more controversial) non-canonical texts: The Gospel of Judas, the Gospel of Thomas, and the Gospel of Philip. What does the non-canonical tradition tell us about the true life of Jesus? Why would these writers twist the truth in the first place? Can we have confidence in the New Testament canon?

Does God Exist? William Lane Craig vs Michael Nugent: Saturday 25 March 2017 2:30:00 pm - Premier Christian Radio

9 Using a Daily Devotional Book | Reasonable Faith

The second devotional that we have found helpful is Amazing Grace by Kenneth Osbeck, a music director with a love of the classical hymns. It is tragic that these rich hymns are being lost to the church because of contemporary worship services led by garage band musicians. It has been rightly said, I think, that the theological character of a church will be determined not just by its preaching but by its music. Measured by that standard, the American church and churches abroad influenced by it are in real trouble. Many of today’s Christians have never sung the exalted words of Charles Wesley’s “And Can It Be?” or the comforting words of “Be Still, My Soul” by Katherina Schlegel or the beautiful words of Bernard of Clairvaux’s “Jesus, Thou Joy of Loving Hearts.” These are wonderful, deep hymns with beautiful lyrics. The church which neglects these treasures will be impoverished for it. This daily devotional tells the stories, one each calendar day, of how these various hymns were composed and put to music. It’s striking how many hymns come out of experiences of deep suffering, which reminds us that health and prosperity are not God’s will for every Christian.

Antony Flew–The Most Renowned Atheist of the 20th Century

I remember reading Antony Flew’s article “Theology and Falsification” as an undergraduate in an introduction to philosophy class.  At that time, back in the early 90’s, Flew was still known as one of the most prolific and influential atheists in the world.  One thing I appreciated about Flew was that he was willing to engage in civil dialogue with Christian scholars–unlike many who wear the atheist mantle today.  One of those scholars was Gary Habermas , a professor of philosophy at Liberty University.  As far back as 1987, Flew and Habermas were publishing transcripts of their debates on the resurrection of Jesus.  Flew and Habermas engaged in a number of debates and dialogues, and developed a lasting friendship.  When it came time to find a writer for our entry on Flew for the Dictionary of Christianity and Science , it was only natural to ask Gary Habermas.  Dr. Habermas’s insightful and appreciative article on Flew appears below.

Difficult Friendships Are Good for You

Admit that the relationship is complicated and tough. Ignoring or downplaying the difficulty doesn’t do anyone any good. Admit it to yourself, to the Lord, and to the sister. Speak with her privately and directly, as that often clears things up (Matthew 18:15). As you speak with her, remind her that you care for her and love her. Tell her that having this relationship is good for you, and that you want to be consistently vulnerable and honest. Just because the friendship is difficult doesn’t mean bitterness or anger is inevitable. You can still genuinely love each other in the midst of hurt and pain.

3) “The man whose little sermon is ‘repent’ sets himself against his age, and will for the time being be battered mercilessly by the age whose moral tone he challenges.

Robotech: The Macross Saga- Pacifism, Loyalty, and Honor

Robotech was one of the first anime programs to be released in the United States, in 1985. So I’m a little late to the party to finally be watching it, but I always wanted to when I was little, and my wife got me the series for Christmas a year ago. I was surprised by the depth of some of the worldview-level issues that were addressed in the show alongside a story of aliens vs. humans. Here, I will examine some of these worldview issues from the show from a Christian perspective. There will be  SPOILERS  in what follows.

7 Reasons Christians Are Not Required to Tithe

When Christians are instructed to give to the poor, they aren’t commanded to give “the poor tithe.” Instead, they are instructed to be generous in helping those in need (Acts 2:43–47; 4:32–37; 11:27–30; Gal. 2:10; 1 Cor. 16:1–4; 2 Cor. 8:1–9:15). For example, 1 Corinthians 16:1–4—a passage often cited in popular circles in support—doesn’t mention tithing; it relates to a one-time gift for poor saints in Jerusalem.

Five Marks of a Servant Leader

Other factors muddy the waters even more for us. To begin with, all Christian leaders have indwelling sin, which means even at the height of their maturity, they will still be defective servants. Add to this the fact that most leaders have not yet reached their height of maturity. Add to this the fact that all Christian followers also have indwelling sin and most haven’t reached our height of maturity either. Add to this the fact that different temperaments, experiences, giftings, and callings influence both how certain leaders tend to serve, and how certain followers tend to perceive that leadership — a leader’s genuine attempt to serve might be interpreted by a genuine follower as an attempt to “lord it over” them (2 Corinthians 1:24). And then there are wolfish, self-serving leaders who, while deceiving their followers, appear for a time to behave in ways similar to servant leaders.

What We Can Learn from Demi Lovato’s Fight for Sobriety

The media’s obsession with the rise and fall of its celebrities, even shared with notes of positivity, continues to weave a tangled narrative about the dangers of mental illness, self-harm and addiction. It’s a narrative of dichotomy, contrasting the miry depths of the “rock bottom” and the ascent into a rose-colored cloud of recovery. Lovato’s mighty fight for sobriety highlights a more complicated reality, and some lessons we can learn about the nature of addiction and the freedom of release.

Dinosaur Phylogeny Gets "Radical Shakeup," Requiring Convergent Evolution | Evolution News

This new tree topology requires redefinition and rediagnosis of Dinosauria and the subsidiary dinosaurian clades. In addition, it forces re-evaluations of early dinosaur cladogenesis and character evolution, suggests that hypercarnivory was acquired independently in herrerasaurids and theropods, and offers an explanation for many of the anatomical features previously regarded as notable convergences between theropods and early ornithischians. … Herrerasauridae is recovered as the sister clade to Sauropodomorpha, suggesting that some of the theropod-like features of their anatomy have evolved independently of those found in theropods. This is most likely a direct result of their fully carnivorous feeding strategy; in our hypothesis a fully carnivorous feeding strategy is not recovered as the plesiomorphic condition for Dinosauria and we are forced to interpret some of the anatomical similarities between herrerasaurids and theropods as convergences. The convergent evolution of hypercarnivore morphology within Dinosauria raises interesting questions about the drivers of early dinosaur evolution.

Did Jesus ever experience doubt?

There is much good in what Wehner writes, and I appreciate his call for compassion and consolation for those who suffer. Certainly, the Christian faith offers comfort to those who despair and grieve. Nevertheless, offering Jesus as an example of “doubt” and “uncertainty” actually distorts the biblical depiction of Christ’s suffering. It also diminishes the consolation that Christ offers to sufferers. Christ’s suffering is a consolation to us not because he partakes of our same sinful humanity but because he remained steadfast so that he could redeem our sinful humanity. His faithfulness is our hope, not his faltering (which he never in fact did).

Stop Using the Term “Fetus” | Cold Case Christianity

I think we need to return “humanity” to the terms we use when describing the unborn. We need to use a term that identifies the unborn as a precious human being and connects it to the continuing life of this human being over time, both in the womb during pregnancy and out of the womb after birth. So rather than use the term “fetus” when describing the unborn, I am determined to use the word “fetal human”. This expression seems to meet the criteria satisfied by the word “fetus”, while properly identifying the unborn as the same human who will eventually enter into other stages of human development. I have been a fetal human, an infant human, a prepubescent human, and a mature human. As a human being, I have experienced all of these stages of development. The term “fetal human” allow me to capture the distinct nature of my humanity and apply it to every level of my development. I may have been progressing between one stage of development to the next over the past fifty-two years, but I’ve always been a human. The term “fetal human” recognizes this reality.

Can the World Explain Your Comfort?

Does the kind of fear and comfort above describe your church and your own heart? Unfortunately, life in a fallen world often incites the wrong kind of fear and curbs the kind of fear we need most. We fear God far less than we should, and a lot of other things far more. Instead of fearing the all-powerful, all-knowing, perfectly just Judge of the universe, we fear little things like change and rejection.

Christians Must Fight to Protect Truth—Now, More Than Ever

Ed Stetzer, a professor at Wheaton College, wrote an article recently called, “ Facts Are Our Friends : Why Sharing Fake News Makes Us Look Stupid and Harms Our Witness.” Stetzer claims that, essentially, when Christians accept fake news, false facts or worse “alternative facts,” we drive a wedge between us and the people we are supposed to reach. Worse still, when we use our own “facts” based on our desires to do something—even if it is good—we are falling short of who God calls us to be (we’re simply lying).

God Drew Near in the NICU

We all too often, as children of God, forget how our union with Christ can impact anyone’s life at any given moment. As Christ dwells in us, he makes known the hope of our glory to the world around us (Colossians 1:27). When someone is in a valley of despair, God powerfully reveals himself through his people to reveal “the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ” (2 Corinthians 4:6). Like Peter and John, God promises to reveal himself through our union with him (Acts 4:13).

As chief economist at Heritage, Moore focuses on advancing public policies that increase the rate of economic growth to help the United States retain its position as the global economic superpower. He also works on budget, fiscal and monetary policy and showcases states that get fiscal houses in order.

God of Love?

Increasingly today, “love” for many involves control and manipulation, seeking maximum self-gratification in return for minimum commitment. It could be argued that this is due, at least in part, to the widespread influence of atheism and naturalistic evolution in public life, particularly in schools. If children are told that there is no God, no ultimate purpose, no universal standard for moral behavior; that they are utterly insignificant, the result of chance chemical interactions on a cosmic stage; that survival of the fittest is the most important factor in the evolution and furtherance of the human race—is it really any wonder that much of society is obsessed with hedonism and violence? This approach to life is the complete opposite of what the Bible teaches about love and its associated humility, mercy, kindness, and faithfulness.
