Scholars Agree: Luke and Acts are History | Come Reason's Apologetics Notes

The dominant view today, earlier argued by such Lukan scholars as Martin Dibelius and Henry Cadbury, is that Acts is a work of ancient historiography. As Johnson notes in the Anchor Bible Dictionary, "The reasons for regarding Luke-Acts as a History are obvious and, to most scholars, compelling: One sampling of recent proposals concerning Acts genre is instructive: two proponents for Acts as a novel, two for epic, four for biography, and ten for various kinds of history. More examples could be listed in each category, but the sampling is nevertheless helpful for getting a sense of proportion: even in a list emphasizing the diversity of proposals, history appears five times as often as the novel and, together with biography, seven times as often as the novel. A similar sampling finds history the most common proposal, with eight examples, and biography the second most common, with two examples, and lists five examples of all other genre proposals put together. Many scholars most conversant in ancient historiography would also concur with Hengel and Schwemer that those who deny Acts as acceptable first-century historiography need to read more ancient historiography "and less hypercritical and scholastic secondary literature.

ISIS calls them The Nation of the Cross - The ones they have killed are bringing a message of forgiveness and hope. Declaring a love that they do not know - A love that reconciles even the worst of us and can make enemies into brothers.

No Mor Chikin: Johns Hopkins Students Ban Chick-fil-A From Campus

My Wife Has Tattoos: Marriage and New Birth

In reality, Taylor's story is my story as well. As she walked down the aisle toward me, I was reminded of how much I don't deserve the precious gift she is to me. I've spent much of my life singing a self-centered siren song. Nothing about my life cries for blessings; it calls for curses forever. Yet God has dressed me in white, put my sin upon his Son, and given me a heart that loves him.

Amid Funding Cuts, Will LSU Have to Declare 'Bankruptcy'?

Louisiana's public colleges are hoping for the best but preparing for the worst as they face a drop in state funding of up to 82 percent. As the state legislature fails to make headway covering a $608 million shortfall in higher education spending, its public colleges are bracing for the prospect of budget cuts so deep some institutions — including the state's biggest public flagship — might have to declare financial exigency. That's college funding-speak for something akin to bankruptcy.

We’re Called to Make Disciples, Not Converts

After decades of youth and adult ministry in the heart of the Bible belt, I have come to this painful conclusion, ignorance of Jesus is epidemic. In the 35 and under age group, 95% have never read even one of the four Gospels. We are fervently preaching and witnessing in order to get folks to trust Jesus, assuming they have a clear picture of Him- they don’t. They only have second-hand information that forms their patchwork idea of Jesus. Biblical education is a huge part of effectively sharing the Gospel. Reading the stories has become necessary to build trust in the Biblical Jesus, not some character created from hear-say and personal fantasy. Our faith is based in the Jesus of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, the original religious tracts. The goal of the Primary Source Project is to get everyone to read or listen to the life and teaching of Jesus and begin an ongoing and lifelong conversation about Him. Challenge your friends and family to start reading the 4 Gospels and let the Word of God do the heavy lifting. It works! primarysourceproject.org

GoFundMe Disables Campaign for Christian Bakery after Pressure from Bakery's Competitor | The Stream

After careful review by our team, we have found the ‘Support Sweet Cakes By Melissa campaign to be in violation of our Terms and Conditions. The money raised thus far will still be made available for withdrawal. While a different campaign was recently permitted for a pizzeria in Indiana, no laws were violated and the campaign remained live. However, the subjects of the ‘Support Sweet Cakes By Melissa’ campaign have been formally charged by local authorities and found to be in violation of Oregon state law concerning discriminatory acts. Accordingly, the campaign has been disabled.”

3 Important Church Trends in the Next 10 Years

The second thing I think you’re going to continue to see is the continued growth of Pentecostalism and the charismatic movement. The Charismatics and Pentecostals have already won the worship war—most churches are now comfortable with what would be "Calvary Chapel" worship in 1980. They are in the process of winning the spiritual gifts debate concerning cessationism, a view which seems in decline in the next generation.

Bakers face $135,000 fine for refusing to make cake for gay wedding

"The facts of this case clearly demonstrate that the Kleins unlawfully discriminated against the Complainants,” read a statement by the BOLI to the Oregonian. “Under Oregon law, businesses cannot discriminate or refuse service based on sexual orientation, just as they cannot turn customers away because of race, sex, disability, age or religion. Our agency is committed to fair and thorough enforcement of Oregon civil rights laws, including the Equality Act of 2007."

Contradictions: Can a Thief Go to Heaven?

The thieves crucified with Jesus are a fitting picture of all mankind. They show us the only two possible options for entering eternity: to receive Christ’s free gift of salvation or reject it. So there’s good news! When a thief receives Christ as Lord, he is no longer a thief in the eyes of God; his sin is covered and he is able to enter heaven. Scripture makes that plain and without contradiction.

God's Not Dead: God Exists: Knowledge and a Discussion on the Gettier Problem

Herein is the problem resulting from the lack of omniscience: one cannot know at a particular moment that one’s belief is true knowledge and not just JTB. In contrast, God is omniscient, He knows all things; men lack omniscience, so real JTB cannot be solely based on empirical observations, one must know some truths based on God’s nature and His revelation. This is a presupposition that furnishes the ground for true truth arrived in a non-erroneous manner. So truth is located in God’s unflawed, utterly precise omniscience.

19 Are atheists more moral than religious people?

Honestly, I’ve always struggled to understand how giving to charity could be rational, on atheism. If you are only alive for 80 years, and the purpose of your life is to be happy, then the only reason I can think of to give anything away to anyone is because it makes you feel happier or more respected or something. Maybe because you like thinking of yourself as moral, or maybe because you want to be seen as moral, or maybe because you want a tax deduction, or maybe something else. But if this is the only life you are ever going to have, and people are just collections of atoms, then why care about what anyone is doing? We’re all just accidents anyway, on atheism, and we’re going to die out eventually. There are no objective moral duties – we are accidents on the atheist view. One set of atoms giving some atoms to another set of atoms, and then in the end all the atoms get scattered: who cares?

America's new LGBT envoy

A few worried that designating an envoy expressly for the purpose of promoting the rights of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people around the world — an official goal of U.S. diplomacy since 2011 — would stovepipe the issue and lead others at State to neglect it. Others, according to a State employee involved in the process, wondered if including “LGBT” in the title would hurt the envoy’s ability to get meetings with senior officials in countries such as Uganda and Russia, where gays have increasingly come under legal attack.

Philly Bakery Creates Tebow Pretzel to Welcome Him to the Eagles

Heisman trophy winner Tim Tebow recently signed a contract to be a back-up quarterback with the Philadelphia Eagles, and a local bakery is giving him the ultimate welcome present: His own pretzel. The Philly Pretzel Factory recently unveiled the signature snack , which is shaped like the devout quarterback’s one-knee prayer position he’s known to take on the sidelines. Of course, Tebow is one of the country’s most polarizing athletes (he last played in the NFL during the 2013 preseason), so it shouldn’t be too much of a surprise that another baker has created an anti-Tebow pretzel . Welcome to Philadelphia ...

Why You Should (Literally) Look at the World Upside Down

That we all depend in every detail, at every instant, as a Christian would say upon God, as even an agnostic would say upon existence and the nature of things, is not an illusion of imagination; on the contrary, it is the fundamental fact which we cover up, as with curtains, with the illusion of ordinary life. That ordinary life is an admirable thing in itself, just as imagination is an admirable thing in itself. But it is much more the ordinary life that is made of imagination than the contemplative life. He who has seen the whole world hanging on a hair of the mercy of God has seen the truth; we might almost say the cold truth. He who has seen the vision of his city upside-down has seen it the right way up.

http://www.gotquestions.org/Bible-errors.html?utm_content=buffer42ab3&utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter.com&utm_campaign=buffer

Question: "Does the Bible contain errors, contradictions, or discrepancies?" Answer: If we read the Bible at face value, without a preconceived bias for finding errors, we will find it to be a coherent, consistent, and relatively easy-to-understand book. Yes, there are difficult passages. Yes, there are verses that appear to contradict each other. We must remember that the Bible was written by approximately 40 different authors over a period of around 1500 years. Each writer wrote with a different style, from a different perspective, to a different audience, for a different purpose. We should expect some minor differences. However, a difference is not a contradiction. It is only an error if there is absolutely no conceivable way the verses or passages can be reconciled. Even if an answer is not available right now, that does not mean an answer does not exist. Many have found a supposed error in the Bible in relation to history or geography only to find out that the Bible is correct once further archaeological evidence is discovered. We often receive questions along the lines of �Explain how these verses do not contradict!� or �Look, here is an error in the Bible!� Admittedly, some of the things people bring up are difficult to answer.

Little Boy

About that story: the movie’s official website describes it as “a powerful and moving film about a little boy who is willing to do whatever it takes to bring his dad home from World War II alive.” At face value, nothing wrong with that description. But Monteverde, who also co-wrote the script, is trying to do far too much with what should’ve been a simple fable.

Death toll in Nepal quake exceeds 2,100

At Bir Hospital — one of the oldest hospitals in Kathmandu — doctors had treated patients outside in the hours following the earthquake. They had treated more than 300 people and performed 38 back-to-back surgeries on their one functioning operating table, according to Kapil Gautam, a doctor there. Most of the patients had been hurt in roof and wall collapses. More than 100 bodies lay outside in the courtyard, including 10 that were uncovered and had yet to be identified.

29 What “Dying for our Sins” Mean? | Reasonable Faith

My question is about Jesus. I am not a Christian but feeling very close to Jesus since the first day I came to know him. I don't understand him dying for our sins. What does that mean? No Christian has given me a satisfactory answer and I can't think of an answer myself. I am ready to die, today, for my mother but that's not what Jesus did (I assume?).

'A.D. The Bible Continues': Spirit of the Living God

The episode ends with Caiaphas and Peter glaring at each other through the bars of Peter's prison cell. Presumably the next episode will get into the trial scene from Acts 4. But it's a little worrying to see how quickly this one episode zipped through the first few chapters of Acts. There are nine episodes to go, and only six or seven chapters of Acts remaining this season, so how will the series pad things out? More gratuitous violence?

Live in Downtown Dallas

Kevin Harris : Thank you very much for joining us for Reasonable Faith with Dr. William Lane Craig . How often do you hear of events like this? Where the truth of Christ’s claims are discussed in an open forum in a downtown pub or bar? Probably not very often. But that is exactly what this organization does. That was Ezra Boggs emceeing the event. He is the Director of the Bible and Beer Consortium. Their mission statement is, “To take the truth of God as it is to people as they are.” You will find him going to where people, particularly those outside of the Christian faith, often gather. Dr. Craig was invited to speak at one of these events in downtown Dallas, Texas as you just heard. A big crowd showed up to hear him speak on the resurrection. We only included the question and answer session at the end of Bill’s talk because you can find his many presentations on the evidence for the resurrection on ReasonableFaith.org. I hope that you see that this was an opportunity for Reasonable Faith to take the message of Christ to the streets which is exactly what we want to do. The crowd at this event had a lot of fun with Dr.

Do All Creationists Go to Heaven?

So, from a biblical perspective, it is not good enough for us just to see a person converted from evolutionism to creationism! God did not fill the universe with His glory just so we could be awed by it—He wanted us to turn to Him, to know Him, to submit our lives to Him, and to enjoy Him forever. From the perspective of understanding the ultimate meaning of life, merely seeing the wonders of creation and recognizing a Designer is a futile exercise unless a person comes to know the Creator/Redeemer, who is revealed in the written Word of God (the Bible).
