Another Archaeological Find Shows That The Bible Really Is History - A Clear Lens

Last year I wrote an article about how archaeological discoveries continue to support the Bible. In it, I quoted George Rawlinson and Albert Nicols Arnold’s book, “The Historical Evidences Of The Truth Of The Scripture Records” with the following: “…even at this remote distance of time from the date of the Sacred Oracles, new evidences of …

Have We Lost the Message of the New Testament? | Mikel Del Rosario | Your Apologetics Guy℠

Lost the Plot? Have we somehow lost the message of the New Testament through irreparable corruptions of the text? That’s what some people wonder when the conversation turns to the issue of textual variants—differences in the biblical manuscripts we’ve discovered over the years. Maybe you’ve got a friend or a co-worker who tends to be pretty skeptical of the Bible right from the get-go. For …

What does it mean to say Christianity is true?

A common approach in apologetic discussions is to ask someone what would convince them  Christianity is true. And if it is true, would you believe it?  After all, we rely on truth every day of our lives. We want our banks, our employers, government, friends, and  family to be truthful with us. And why would you want to believe something that is false? But the more I have thought about this question, I think it leads to some very important questions.

This Is Apologetics: An Argument from Christian Hypocrisy

The objection that Christians are hypocrites, and therefore Christianity must be false, borrows from the very Christian worldview. By presupposing objective morality, the objection presupposes the very God it aims to disprove.

The Importance of Community for Christian Case Makers | Cold Case Christianity

Christian Communities Define Purpose The success of Rick Warren’s Purpose Driven Life should remind us how important it is for every human to answer the question, “Why am I here?” Christian case making communities must help young people answer this question for themselves (individually) and for the group (collectively). Are we here to simply fight the enemy? Are we here to simply win the debate? If these are the limits of our ambition, we will never become more than a group or a club. Communities are driven by more transcendent goals. Campolo was right when he recognized the power of mission . As a Christian he rallied around the causes of God and enjoyed the common sense of purpose he experienced in Christian community. He enjoyed devoting his life to loving others and making the world a better place. I think he is misguided in thinking these transcendent causes can be grounded in anything other than a Transcendent Father, but that’s another issue altogether. Campolo’s right about one thing: Families are united in mission and purpose. If you are leading a Christian case making community, examine your activities to see if they reflect the mission of God.

How to Share the Gospel Without Being a Jerk

Nobody likes a jerk, but so often this is the impression many Christians give when sharing the faith. There are many people who claim to follow Christ but share their faith in a way that completely contradicts Jesus’ message and manner. This happens even with well-meaning, kind-hearted, Christians. They want their friends and family to know Jesus Christ, but they fall into unhealthy patterns of sharing the faith, patterns that push people away from God rather than draw people near. I want to begin by saying that I understand. Sharing the Christian faith is hard.

Why Are Stories Such Powerful Means of Communication?

When we hear a story, however, things dramatically shift inside us, according to researchers in Europe. Not only are the language processing portions of our brain activated, but any other portion we’d use when experiencing the events of that story are as well. If we hear about the sweltering heat of a summer day, the preoptic areas of the anterior hypothalamus portion of our brain lights up. If a person tells us how delicious their lasagna was last night, our sensory cortex lights up. When a friend describes how fast he was running on a track last week, our motor cortex is ignited. In other words, the better the storyteller, the more portions of the brain are engaged. It can be far superior to relaying mere facts. In many cases, the listeners actually feel as if they are experiencing the story itself. It is an experience.

Book Review: Expanded and Updated Evidence that Demands a Verdict by Josh McDowell and Sean McDowell

Introduction When I began investigating the evidence for Christianity, one name that believers repeatedly recommended was Josh McDowell .  I began looking into his works and discovered two titles- More than a Carpenter and Evidence that Demands a Verdict (EDAV).  At the time, I especially found EDAV to be a great resource for a novice like myself.  It enabled me to evaluate some of the manuscript evidence for the Old Testament and the New Testament. Amazingly, the original EDAV was published in 1979!  The new edition is thoroughly revised and updated from previous editions in light of the plethora of recently uncovered historical documentation and the best of modern scholarship.  The chapters are expanded and address many of the most recent attacks from Christianity's harshest critics. In addition, EDAV is now co-authored by Josh McDowell and his son, Sean McDowell, Ph.D .  This new work provides "fresh insights, greater perspective and a fresh voice to today's most pressing questions." Strengths of the Book Usually, when we receive a book to review, we post a book preview of the work for readers to familiarize themselves with a forthcoming text.

Do Christians Carry More Emotional Stress Than Non-Christians?

“I guess you could say God is ‘molding’ me, which I’m eternally grateful for, but it has taken a toll on me, too. I’ve been encouraged to hear that a number of great Christians experienced great emotional stress and struggle (even David in the Psalms), but it is almost paralyzing for me at times. Is this normal? As Christians we’re called to have faith, confidence in Christ, and be filled with a joyful spirit, but now I find my spirit to be heavy. I guess you could say my prayer life lately sounds like Psalm 88.” Pastor John, how would you counsel Amanda?

The Commitment of the Apostles Confirms the Truth of the Resurrection

Many of us, as committed Christians, would rather die than reject our Savior. Around the world today, Christians are executed regularly because they refuse to deny their allegiance to Jesus or the truth claims of Christianity. But their deaths, while heartbreaking and compelling, have no evidential value. Many people are willing to die for what they don’t know is a lie. Martyrdom doesn’t confirm the truth, especially when the martyrs don’t have first-hand access to the claim for which they’re dying. But this wasn’t the case for the disciples of Jesus. They were in a unique position: they knew if the claims about Jesus were true. They were present for the life, ministry, death and alleged resurrection of Jesus. If the claims about Jesus were a lie, the disciples would have known it (in fact they would have been the source of the lie). That’s why their commitment to their testimony was (and is) so compelling. Unlike the rest of us, their willingness to die for their claims has tremendous evidential value. In fact, the commitment of the apostles confirms the truth of the resurrection.

Jesus Is More Than Your Savior

He is not like a lifeguard who saves us from the undertow to hand us off to our family, but like our own father who rescues us from the riptide for himself to give us the longest, sweetest, and most memorable hug we ever had. His rescue is not like that of a paramedic, fireman, police officer, or soldier honorably “just doing my job,” but in his rescue he demonstrates his personal, covenantal, eternal love for us. Our salvation doesn’t show his commitment to his work as much as his commitment to his child.

The ‘Bad Girls’ of the Bible Deserve a Fresh Look

Edited by Sandra Glahn, associate professor of media arts and worship at Dallas Theological Seminary, the essays focus on revisiting the “sexualized, vilified, and marginalized women of the Bible.” Some may be tempted to read this as a politically motivated subtitle, but Glahn contests this conclusion in her preface, stating, “Our motivation is to handle faithfully the biblical text, which involves bringing to light a number of women labeled as ‘bad girls’ who deserve a fresh look.”

Why Would God Send Good People to Hell? (Podcast) | Cold Case Christianity

Jim responds to this objection and answers listener email related to the Craig/Harris debate, pre-existing mythologies that are similar to Jesus, and the difficult, exclusive nature of “election”.

The Minimal Facts of the Resurrection

Before looking at the facts surrounding the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, it is important to identify a set of objective criteria by which the validity of historical events may be judged. In other words, what criteria may be used to establish the occurrence of an event with reasonable historical certainty? New Testament scholars Gary Habermas and Michael Licona list the following five criteria noting that “a historian who is able to apply one or more of the following principles to a text can conclude with much greater confidence whether a certain event occurred.” [10]

The Insanity of Leaning on Our Own Understanding

If you eat of that one [tree] you will be saying to me, “I’m smarter than you. I am more authoritative than you. I am wiser than you are. I think I can care for myself better than you care for me. You are not a very good Father. And so, I am going to reject you.” So, don’t eat from the tree, because you will be rejecting me and all my good gifts and all my wisdom and all my care. Instead, keep on submitting to my will. Keep on affirming my wisdom. Keep on being thankful for my generosity. Keep on trusting me as a Father and keep on eating from these [other] trees as a way of enjoying me.

46 Phase-plate cryo-EM structure of a biased agonist-bound human GLP-1 receptor–Gs complex

The glucagon-like peptide 1 receptor (GLP-1R) is a key target for the treatment of type 2 diabetes and obesity. Recently, biased agonists—ligands that selectively activate primarily one signalling pathway—have been identified. One of these, exendin-P5, is biased for G-protein signalling, increasing adipogenesis—the generation of fat cells—and is more effective at correcting hyperglycaemia than other agonists. Here, Patrick Sexton and colleagues report the structure of the human GLP-1R in complex with exendin-P5 and the G-protein heterotrimer determined from cryo-electron microscopy. Not only does this work reveal more detailed structural information about the receptor complex and its activation, it also proposes a basis for biased agonism, in the interactions with both the ligand and the G protein.
