Why You Should Be a Christian Feminist

I live just miles from the plantation where Harriet Tubman lived and worked as a slave. The UGR runs a bike ride from our farm, so I am familiar with Tubman's story and I can tell you that fighting for the rights of women was not the motivation behind her cause. She paved a way for a race to experience freedom. Why is it so necessary to apply a label to a gender? Does the feminist label generate empowerment? A complimentarian role for women fits into the biblical context much more than feminist. I will,continue to reach mybdaughtets to breach deep inside themselves to make their mark in the world, that is true freedom. Assigning a label does not define a gender.

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.

Seven Reasons Why Moral Apologetics Points to Christianity

Fifth, Christianity holds out the hope for total moral transformation. Morality upholds a standard that all of us fall short of all the time, yet there’s nothing about morality that hints at accommodation or compromise. The right ultimate explanation of morality should be able to make sense of our aspirations for radical moral transformation, and even perfection as something more than a Pollyannaish pipedream. Christianity offers, by God’s grace through faith, moral hope instead of moral despair, forgiveness and liberation from guilt, and the prospect to be totally conformed to the image of Christ, in whom there’s no shadow of turning. The resurrection offers the prescription from both death and sin: abundant and everlasting life. Moral apologetics works best when it is soteriological (offering both forgiveness and transformation, both justification and sanctification).

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.

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?

5 Things Christian Apologetics Must Have

Apologetics must be distinguished from evangelism. Apologetics answers questions about Christianity (1 Peter 3:15), and it can build a positive case for the Christian faith (Luke 1:4). But this is clearly different from evangelism or giving the gospel (1 Cor. 15:1-4). Evangelism is any time, any place, to anyone, in any conversation. Apologetics is only done when and if needed for unbelievers or even believers: to defend the faith or strengthen the faith.

Reasonable Faith Podcast: The Multiverse Hypothesis

The final point that I wanted to make is one made by the philosopher Michael Rota who was also involved in team teaching this course at St. Thomas on fine-tuning. What Rota argues is that the multiverse is actually more probable on theism than it is on naturalism. He says on a theistic version of the multiverse hypothesis the proportion of life-permitting universes will be much larger. This means that it’s much more to be expected that our universe would be life-permitting on a theistic multiverse hypothesis than it is expected to be on in an atheistic multiverse hypothesis. If the atheistic multiverse hypothesis were true, he says, some rational observers somewhere in the multiverse would almost certainly exist but it very probably would not have been us because our universe would very probably not have allowed life. So what Rota is saying is that if God exists and has created a multiverse he would probably make it such that observers would appear widely throughout the multiverse. God wants to create creatures after his own image that could know him. But on naturalism it’s highly, highly improbable that the sort of life-permitting universes would exist.

In Age of Relativism, Christians Should Remind Ourselves: 'This is the Truth. Deal With It.' | The Stream

If all of the furor about “fake news” resulted in showing people the blatant contradiction in their thinking and forcing them to affirm objective truth and morality, it would all be worthwhile. But, alas, I suspect that critical thinking is too far-gone these days for most people to realize — and then admit — that they’ve been living an incredibly convenient lie: truth is relative whenever it suits me.

Why Does God Ask So Much of Moms?

Whatever your duties, extraordinary or mundane, they require more strength than you have. And that is for your good. Why? Because when you know you don’t have enough strength, you will call on the Lord for his. Whoever said, “God will never give you more than you can handle,” did not know what they were talking about. God often gives us far more than we can handle, which is why we need more strength than we have. He hears our prayers, and loves to give us his strength. And those are the times when we feel ourselves loving the Lord with all our strength.

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.

How Not Letting Your Children Ask a Question Leads Them to Atheism

And more often than not, I’m given one reason that is quite strange. Well, its not strange to me anymore because of how often I’m given this answer. Too often, I have people tell me that the reason they do not believe in God anymore is because no one ever let them ask a question.

34 Facebook, Politics and Christianity

God did not choose one candidate and He is not in one political party. Our God doesn’t fall within one political ideology or one government system, yet we find Him in the heart of politics. For His heart is for the people. We may disagree on abortion policies, but all Christians should agree on valuing life. We may disagree on taxes, but all Christians should agree resources should be well stewarded. We may disagree on foreign policy, but all Christians should agree peace should be sought out.

The Argument from Reason to God

Naturalism is the view that there are no supernatural beings. The natural world is causally closed: there is nothing outside the box, nothing transcendent, nothing that impinges on the world from beyond. Thus, the basic level of analysis is physics: all reality, at rock bottom is captured by tiny bits of matter (quarks? strings?) that are properly understood by the discipline of physics. On this picture, a deep puzzle—conflict even—arises: how is it that our world is intelligible , if man is just a product of chance and necessity? Whence reason?

Faith Is Changing the Way People Think About Music

The song has become a safe haven in a world increasingly hostile to religious expression. It’s not difficult to see why. Religion in the Western world is largely tolerated only as a private experience, a personal commitment and an individual faith. Public displays of one’s relationship with God are either reduced to a quaint “tradition”—or they are controversial. Speaking aloud about God is always a decision to enter into the culture wars—and so few speak, outside of the echo-chambers of fellow believers and seekers.

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.

Stewarding a Multiethnic Campus

“We look like a parachurch, but we’re not,” said Seth Terrell, assistant director of Campus Outreach in Birmingham. Each franchise is under the headship and sponsorship of a local church; that connection played a part in keeping the organization monochromatic for so long. Campus Outreach encourages its students to attend those churches, but unless they’re multiethnic, that’s not a comfortable experience for many minority students.

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.
