Stem Cell Research—Lifesaving Alternatives

Given these advances, it’s no wonder Ian Wilmut, who cloned Dolly the sheep in 1996, has abandoned using embryonic stem cells in his research. Likewise, Bernadine Healy, former director of the National Institutes of Health (USA), pronounced embryonic stem cell research “obsolete” and pointed out its dangers, such as an embryonic stem cell experiment that caused tumors in a patient. Even President Obama has cautioned, “The full promise of [embryonic] stem cell research remains unknown.”

The Top Reasons You Should Think About Apologetics

The statistics on how "modern individuals" think are clear, skepticism is at an all-time high and piggybacking along with that perspective is a profound sense of confusion. The culture is confused about what the church believes, and the church is confused about what culture believes. Far too often causing the two groups to either ignore, or talk passed one another. Part-and-parcel to this problem is the fact that far too many Christians do not know exactly what it is that they profess to believe to begin with. So in one sense, you can't blame the culture looking in to then likewise misrepresent and misunderstand the church. If Christians fail to articulate and affirm what it is exactly that they believe, why should the culture respond in any substantial way towards what they are saying?

Does Quantum Gravity Avoid the Need for a Cosmic Creator?

Many people use quantum gravity as a loophole for avoiding the conclusion that a Creator must have intervened from beyond space and time to create the universe. (There are excellent theoretical rebuttals to such speculations that I will report on in future articles.) A recent breakthrough shows the possibility of observational testing in this area. Thanks to new observations of distant quasars and blazers at short wavelengths, astronomers have placed strong constraints on quantum gravity speculations.

Kindle Deals in Christian Apologetics: Greg's Top 10 Picks of the Week!

To some, the concept of having faith in a higher power or a set of religious beliefs is nonsensical. Indeed, many view religion in general, and Christianity in particular, as unfounded and unreasonable. Norman Geisler and Frank Turek argue, however, that Christianity is not only more reasonable than all other belief systems, but is indeed more rational than unbelief itself. With conviction and clear thinking, Geisler and Turek guide readers through some of the traditional, tested arguments for the existence of a creator God. They move into an examination of the source of morality and the reliability of the New Testament accounts concerning Jesus. The final section of the book deals with a detailed investigation of the claims of Christ. This volume will be an interesting read for those skeptical about Christianity, as well as a helpful resource for Christians seeking to articulate a more sophisticated defense of their faith.   ORDER YOUR COPY NOW >>>

Six Ways the Church Can Stand with Women

Our temptation might be to dismiss all special consideration of women, because some seek it sinfully. But the church’s response to our society is not to vilify it, but instead to salt it with the truth of God’s word. So, it is good to pause and consider how we might champion women in the church, not out of envy or rivalry or discontentment (Galatians 5:20–21), but out of the rooted security we have in Christ (Ephesians 4:12–16), who is the great champion of women.

Don Carson on American Politics and the Benedict Option

Whereas, we need our churches that are not following the dictates of the world and its agenda and culture and entertainment modes of how you use smartphones and whatever, but at the same time is engaged with the world. We need to be different from the world, but engaged with the world. That’s not comfortable, but it seems to be essentially Christian. It’s what Christians had to do in the first century, the second century, the third century. It’s what Christians have done whenever the world has stood over against it. But the church has maintained a commitment to the gospel and to evangelism.

The 7 most important words in your Christian marriage - Premier Christianity

There aren’t just two people in a Christian marriage. God is also present and that means finding times when the three of you can talk together. But praying together does something else as well. It means we lay out on the table what we're concerned about, what’s on our heart. If we have children it gets us on the same wavelength for our hopes, fears and aspirations. And then it does the most wonderful thing, where the two of you can hand it all over to the third person, to God.

Lord, Free Me from the Fear of Death

Jesus is eager to give us this great gain, and he wants us to grow in our eagerness to receive it. How do we do that? Like he does. We ask the Father for it! We join Jesus in praying for the time we will finally see him in all his glory. We ask him to decrease the hold that the fear of death has on us due to unbelief in our hearts. And we ask him to give us such faith and longing to be with Christ that we no longer wish to live as long as possible here, but only long enough to faithfully finish our course (Acts 20:24). Because to finally be with our Savior will be so much better (Philippians 1:23).

3 Life Hacks Against Fear

I have some friends who are working through a big decision in their life, which may change the place where they do ministry. They’re struggling because they have a hunch that once they leave, others will speak badly about them, misrepresent their actions, and tarnish their legacy. My friends are also struggling to step out because they’re afraid of what will happen to the people they’ve loved and served once they’re gone. They feel responsible for those people, which is very normal.

Why Gender Inequality Is a Christian Issue

Psalm 121:1-2 provides a great picture of God as ezer rescuing the Israelites: “I look up to the mountains—does my help come from there? My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth!” Scripture offers powerful imagery as God’s strength uniquely endows a female’s strength. “What stronger help is there apart from God’s rescue?” Haddad remarks. Far from a passive help devoted exclusively to a husband and children (in the case of married women with children), it extends to God’s work through females in the larger world. As logic has it, a subordinate role of females to males would only follow if God functioned in a subordinate role when helping Israel. That was far from the case.

Most Colleges Have Given Up on Real Education. Middlebury is Just One Example. | The Stream

Apart from a handful of honorable exceptions, colleges no longer teach the liberal arts or social sciences as means to open students’ minds and encourage them to seek objective truth. Instead, a privileged professorial class that has mostly purged itself of dissenters uses its distinct social power to re-educate, intimidate, shame and indoctrinate students whose views are more conservative or religious. Faculty don’t like to admit that they are wielding power and privilege, but that is what we give them, when we let colleges serve as the gatekeepers to gainful employment, and lavish them with public and private money to indulge their extremist projects.

Did Genghis Khan Invent Religious Freedom?

Weatherford begins by telling the story of his discoveries and admitting he’s putting forward his theory “tentatively” (xxiii). The potential connection involves a short statement by British historian Edward Gibbon in 1787. Gibbon perceived a link between Kahn’s views of religious laws and John Locke’s work on documents formative for the governance of the Carolinas (xvii). While Weatherford couldn’t substantiate this claim, it spurred him to ask whether George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, or Thomas Jefferson knew of Kahn’s thinking, since “the most popular book in the American colonies in the 18th century” was a 1710 biography of Kahn written by a French scholar. As it turns out, Washington owned the book, Franklin popularized it, and Jefferson gave it out as a gift. Thus Weatherford attempts to show similarity in spirit and letter between Kahn’s work on religious freedom and Jefferson’s Virginia Statute for Religious Freedom  in 1777 (xx–xxi).

But for now, here are five lessons I wish I would have known as a younger Christian that might help you in your walk with Christ.

7 Reasons Why Submission is not a Dirty Word | Blog & Mablog

It is not uncommon for me to conduct wedding ceremonies, and one of the questions I usually ask the couple during the premarital counseling is what the composition of the assembly is likely to be. When I preach, everybody is there more or less voluntarily, and they know what they are likely to be getting. But when families travel across the countries for a nephew’s wedding, they don’t always know. Ever mindful of Oscar Wilde’ dictum that a gentleman is one who never insults someone else accidentally , I generally want to know beforehand if a radical lesbian aunt is going to be there—if there is going to be awkwardness at the reception, you might as well be prepared for it. After all, in the services I do, the word obey is included in the bride’s vows, and the homilies will from time to time address the subject of headship and submission. I walk carefully because submission is too often considered a dirty word—a dirty word to those who despise it, or an embarrassing word to those who feel stuck with it.

How to Get Our Girls Into Scripture

It’s no secret that the majority of teaching in the church is focused on male-centered stories. For girls, there is often not a way for them to connect meaningfully to the women of the Bible. They need to be inside God’s Word, reading his truth, and interacting with the Word in a way that is meaningful and applicable to their life experience. Through Bible Belles, we want to show examples of women whose inner beauty God used for a mighty purpose, and we want to help girls understand how he was at work in the lives of these women who came before them.

The Shack — The Missing Art of Evangelical Discernment - AlbertMohler.com

The relationship of the Father to the Son, revealed in a text like John 17, is rejected in favor of an absolute equality of authority among the persons of the Trinity. “Papa” explains that “we have no concept of final authority among us, only unity.” In one of the most bizarre paragraphs of the book, Jesus tells Mack: “Papa is as much submitted to me as I am to him, or Sarayu to me, or Papa to her. Submission is not about authority and it is not obedience; it is all about relationships of love and respect. In fact, we are submitted to you in the same way.”

Why I’m Baptist

The point here should probably simply be that, for me, to be a gospel-believing, Bible-guided Christian is foremost. Second in priority is to embrace the gospel-embodying, gospel-protecting, Bible-rooted, joy-sustaining, God-glorifying doctrines of grace. And only third I would say are my baptist convictions. That enables me, then, to have a good bit of fellowship outside my own denominational connections. And I hope that, through my writings and speaking, the truth of Scripture is being promulgated in the world in such a way that more and more people are brought closer and closer to the central truths and, therefore, to each other.

6 Practical Tips to Free Yourself From Your Phone

An easily overlooked piece of gaining control over your phone is actually allowing yourself time to check it. When you budget your money, you don’t ban yourself from spending any money on coffee ever—you just don’t allow yourself to spend all of your money on coffee every day. You budget a certain amount of money for coffee, and you know that you can spend that money freely on coffee without feeling guilty. And this, in turn, eases the temptation to spend any of your other money on coffee.

Why Do Spiritual Highs Fade?

The clearer our vision of a holy God is, the more it drives us to our knees by the sight of our own sin. The clearer our vision of our sin becomes, the deeper is our sight of God’s mercy and grace through Christ. The deeper we understand his mercy and grace, the more we are amazed by the beauty of this God, the Creator of the universe. For “what is man that you are mindful of him, and the son of man that you care for him?” (Psalm 8:4).

Lay Your Weapon Down: Invitation to Cutters

For those who walk the line between red and black, Jesus invites you to put down your weapons of self-inflicted vandalism.

The acceptance you desire through the cut, he gives without cost. In Christ, you’re not weighed and found wanting, but loved and made righteous by a blood that is not your own.

What are the Toughest Ethical Issue Facing Christians Today? Interview with Dr. Scott Rae

SCOTT RAE: I think the most difficult ethical issues are in two areas--first, the issues that believers face in the workplace when they work in ethically challenged environments, being asked to take on projects or do things that violate their ethical standards. This happens more regularly than we think, which is why so many believers tend toward compartmentalized lives--with one set of ethics for private life and another, different one for the workplace. A second area, very tricky, is how to be faithful to biblical teaching on marriage and sexuality and be perceived as loving and caring for gays, lesbians and those wrestling with their sexual orientation…
