ISIS video purports to show killing of Ethiopian Christians in Libya

It shows one group of captives, identified as Ethiopian Christians, purportedly held by an Islamic State affiliate in eastern Libya known as Barqa Province. It also shows another purportedly held by an affiliate in the southern Libyan calling itself the Fazzan Province. The video then switches between footage of the captives in the south being shot dead and the captives in the east being beheaded on a beach. It was not immediately possible to estimate how many captives were killed or confirm their identities.

"Zion"

"That you can be lonely in a crowd, maybe especially there, is readily observable. You can also be lonely with your oldest friends, or your family, even with the person you love most in the world. To be lonely is to be aware of an emptiness that takes more than people to fill. It is to sense that something is missing which you cannot name. 'By the waters of Babylon, there we sat down and wept, when we remembered Zion,' sings the Psalmist (137:1). Maybe in the end it is Zion that we're lonely for, the place we know best by longing for it, where at last we become who we are, where finally we find home."

Why Religious Liberty Arguments Aren’t Working - Crisis Magazine

It depends on what you mean by the “Catholic Church”. If you are speaking as a theologian to theologians, then it is an overstatement. But, most people refer to their pastors, parish priests and bishops as “the Catholic Church” and they are right in the sense that these are the “face of the Church” for most of us. And it is definitely not an overstatement to say that the Church, in the sense most lay people mean by that term, has been in sync with the secular message of “I’m ok, you’re ok” regarding cohabitation, fornication without cohabitation, divorce, remarriage without a first marriage annulment, and abortion in some cases. The real message of God’s mercy is diluted in homilies. Priests don’t want to scare people away. Poverty is understood as being strictly material; therefore, social justice is misrepresented as secular social work. The things many priests say to people in the confessional cry out to heaven. Cardinals Kasper and Marx are not exceptions that have sprung out of nowhere. They are examples of the logical outcome of a large crop of church representatives that have long abandoned Christ’s teachings in favor of secular beliefs under the guise of giving “pastoral care to the wounded”.

5 Changes Elementary Sunday Schools Need to Make…ASAP

Yes! Yes! Agree completely. Today’s kids, especially in the part of the country where we live (in the Pacific North West), are confronted at earlier ages with questions by peers who come from non-believing homes. The primary role in equipping them with answers is the parent’s, but I think more can also be done in Sunday school, church activities, classes and VBS settings as well. I’ve been saying this for a while now, kids are able to handle more than what we give them credit for. They can deal with the difficult questions and deserve answers. This is one of the reasons why we decided to leave our previous church. I volunteered in the children’s ministry. I have two kids of my own. The rooms where completely chaotic most of the time and very little time was given to an actual “lesson”. I think the only think the only thing my then first grade daughter took away from her time there was “God made the world and everything in it.” Ok, that’s great, but I wanted more. So, we searched and searched for a new church with a great children’s ministry.

Not the Christian Zionism You’re Thinking Of

While some of the speakers hold to a new “progressive dispensationalism” that differs from the Scofield version, the majority propose a Christian Zionism without any version of dispensationalism at all. For us, Christian Zionism begins with the belief that Jews need and deserve a homeland in Israel. Period. The Bible as a whole proclaims that God is saving the world through Israel, its people (including Jesus), and its land. This was true in ancient times, as it is today and will be in the future. Its presence isn’t to displace others, but to develop the country given to them by the United Nations in 1948 and to fulfill a special history going back at least 3,000 years.

The Best Worship Music You Won't Hear on Christian Radio

It’s a lot of music. And trust me, there’s a lot of ugly.

By late 2014, clergy without Russian citizenship, particularly Greek and Roman Catholics and those belongingto the Kiev Patriarchate, were compelled to leave Crimea, and the home of the Kiev Patriarchate’s Bishop of Simferopol and Crimea, Klyment Kushch, was burned down .

7 Bible Verses Reminding Us That God Has Given Us a Purpose In Life

The Lord and His purposes are perfect, and we must realize that we are not. We sometimes fill our heads with doubt during our busy lives, and it keeps us from living out the purposes that He has established for us. The Bible insures us that the Lord has created us and given us all a purpose.

Affirmation is not a civil right, and it cannot be coerced (COMMENTARY) - Religion News Service

Larry, you are quick to label people of Faith as bigots, but you continue to express the most bigoted statements against Christians, exemplifying how bigotry is a two-way street. Cardinal Wuerl recently stated on a Sunday television news interview that those who push the gay agenda, do not want a resolution that recognizes both sides of this issue, they only want it to be a one way resolution, effectively stripping the religious side of their Constitutional rights in the matter. As far as I am concerned, this article is spot on. And if a Christian, who wants to spend his eternity in heaven, must abide by his Faith, and cannot in good conscience support the gay agenda, you equally cannot in the slightest manner understand the religious perspective. And that is okay. But I would not want to start calling you a bigot. But if Christians such as myself are indeed bigots, then it applies likewise.

Finding My Place in The Gospel Coalition

When it comes to gender roles, consent to TGC’s confessional statement doesn't ensure agreement on practice. For example, Tim Keller, pastor at Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York City, gives wide latitude to women in his congregation, encouraging them toward all the rights and responsibilities of unordained men. By contrast, John Piper, co-author with Wayne Grudem for Recovering Biblical Manhood and Womanhood: A Response to Evangelical Feminism, sticks more strictly the biblical text, "I do not permit a woman to teach or to exercise authority over a man," (1 Tim. 2:12). These differences are inherent to a coalition of Christians, and they represent an inevitable, if sometimes confusing, diversity.

Why Christians Need to Renew Their Commitment to Share the Gospel

As country, we are more racially divided than ever. The recent riots and debate over what happened with the Ferguson situation shows we still have a long, long, ways to go on this issue. It is clear we still have racism on both sides. Granted, this has come out even more since Obama took office. For people that enslaved to racism, this is sin and part of the fallen condition. And the Gospel is the only thing that can change the heart on that issue as well. By the way, for Christians that have succumbed to racism, you need to repent! That goes for both sides!

Does Rev. 9:21 Prohibit Abortion?

I’ve been grazing through Peter Williamson’s new commentary on Revelation in the Catholic Commentary on Sacred Scripture series. Revelation 9:21 reads “Nor did they repent of their murders, their magic arts, their sexual immorality or their thefts.” (NIV) The phrase here “magic arts” is translated as “magic potions” in the NABRE, “sorceries” in the ESV, “magic spells” in NET. Williamson notes that the word “literally means ‘drugs’ and, like its modern counterpart, could be used positively to mean medicine, or negatively, as in this case, to mean potions used as aphrodisiacs, abortifacients, contraceptives, or for other morally objectionable purposes.” (p. 173) In a footnote he refers to Michael Gorman who “suggests the possibility of an allusion to abortion in this text.” (p. 173n.12) I found the footnote pretty interesting so I checked Gorman’s book ( Abortion and the Early Church ). I recount here a little longer quote than is offered by Williamson.

Does peer-reviewed science support Bill Nye's attempt to prove materialism?

So, not only does the Miller-Urey experiment not reproduce conditions on the early earth, and not only do you still have the problem of getting a long enough amino acid chain to form spontaneously without breaking down, and not only do you have to put the right sequence of amino acids together to form a protein with an actual function, but while you’re putting this amino acid chain together, you also have to somehow pick only the left-handed amino acids out of a racemic mixture. And even if you get all that (which is pretty much impossible all by itself), that still only gets you one protein. You need much more than that to make a living cell.

Will gay activists threaten this little girl for covering her eyes at a gay pride parade?

Anal intercourse is still being presented in a way that students will interpret as carrying no higher risk for STIs than vaginal intercourse, an irresponsible and misleading presentation of the former which carries a 3000% higher risk for contracting HIV. The curriculum also downplays the seriousness of contracting HIV, potentially leaving the impression with students that it’s not really that big a deal. A section on HIV and AIDS seems to have an undertone of making it acceptable and normal for individuals who are HIV positive to continue having sex with others. Of course this is not science-based teaching. It’s political and social engineering. It is irresponsible and may also put lives at risk.

Tips for Studying the Bible - Cross Examined - Christian Apologetic Ministry | Frank Turek | Christian Apologetics | Christian Apologetics Speakers

That’s why for me, as a new Christian, apologetics websites were just as important as the skeptic sites I had been visiting. I wanted to get some balance and some clear thinking on the issues we know are inherent to the Christian worldview. I found myself applying the same skepticism I had as a detective, and an atheist, to my own examination of Scripture. Here is my approach to answering some of my own questions about Christian doctrine, and Christian evidence. These are principles and tools that may help you sort out the truth for yourself. To help you remember, each of them start with the letter “D”. First, some qualities I think are important as a student of the Bible:

Answering "You'd be Muslim if You Were Born in Morocco" | Come Reason's Apologetics Notes

There is an oft-repeated pluralistic argument that seems to be designed to appeal to reliabilist intuitions. The conclusion of this argument is not always clear, but here is its premise, in Hick's words: For it is evident that in some ninety-nine percent of cases the religion which an individual professes and to which he or she adheres depends upon the accidents of birth. Someone born to Buddhist parents in Thailand is very likely to be a Buddhist, someone born to Muslim parents in Saudi Arabia to be a Muslim, someone born to Christian parents in Mexico to be a Christian, and so on. As a matter of sociological fact, this may be right. Furthermore, it can certainly produce a sense of intellectual vertigo. But what is one to do with this fact, if fact it is, and what follows from it? Does it follow, for example, that I ought not to accept the religious views that I have been brought up to accept, or the ones that I find myself inclined to accept, or the ones that seem to me to be true? Or that the belief-producing processes that have produced those beliefs in me are unreliable? Surely not.

Designed to Kill in a Fallen World

Consider some of the designs for a fallen world. Snakes have a wonderfully designed sensory system that helps them hunt. In fact, some species of snakes have a particularly sophisticated system that allows them to locate warm-blooded prey in total darkness by sensing their prey’s body heat. With this ability, the snake also determines the approximate weight of its prey so that it can inject the correct amount of venom.

Waiting list for legal immigrants surges to 4.4 million | WashingtonExaminer.com

"First, there is clearly no shortage of eligible immigrants being sponsored by family members and employers who are waiting many years for their opportunity to be admitted legally. Any move by the president to relax eligibility standards or grant benefits such as work permits, deferred action, or parole to illegal aliens is profoundly unfair and destructive to the integrity of the legal system because it gives illegal aliens preferential treatment over those applying through the legal process established by Congress," she explained.

How (and Where) Did Judas Really Die? - Cross Examined - Christian Apologetic Ministry | Frank Turek | Christian Apologetics | Christian Apologetics Speakers

In over 25 years of investigations and interactions with eyewitnesses, I’ve learned to employ a number of simple principles when examining contradictions between accounts, and many of these principles can be applied to the alleged discrepancies and contradictions cited in the New Testament . Sometimes, however, my experience as a homicide detective has been helpful in understanding the nature of death scenes (such the crucifixion of Jesus and the suicide of Judas). In this particular case, it appears Judas’ money was used to purchase the Potter’s Field and he later hanged himself in this location. His body remained undiscovered until it experienced post mortem swelling, and when it fell to the ground it broke open in the one area most distended by this swelling. There is no contradiction in Matthew and Luke’s account. They describe the same morbid scene, giving us consistent details we can reassemble to recreate the scene.
