Gary Habermas Questions Why Atheists Believe in Alexander the Great, but Not Jesus' Resurrection

Is Mark's Gospel an Early Memoir of the Apostle Peter? | Cold Case Christianity

Now, it can be argued that Papias’ description of Mark’s collaboration with Peter in Rome is the earliest description available to us. In fact, skeptics have tried to argue that later Church sources are simply parroting Papias when they connect Mark to Peter. But there is no evidence to suggest that Papias is the sole source of information related to Peter and Mark, particularly when considering the slight variations in the subsequent attributions (such as Clement’s version). The subtle differences suggest that the claims came from different original sources. In addition, Justin Martyr’s tangential reference to the ‘sons of thunder’ strengthens the support for Peter’s involvement coming from a source other than Papias (who never makes this connection). In essence, a claim of dependency on Papias lacks specific evidence, and even if this were the case, there is no reason to doubt the accuracy of Papias’ original claim in the first place. The consistent record of history identifies Mark’s Gospel as a memoir of Peter’s life with Jesus.

Why Not to Check Your Phone in the Morning

Back in April we surveyed readers of 8,000 of you responded — thank you for the amazing response. Of those total responses, over 50% of those who have a smartphone admit to checking their phones within minutes of waking up in a typical morning. Among readers 18–29, that number is over 60%. Most of us know a pattern like this (checking email, texts, and social media on our phones immediately in the morning) is not healthy, but we do it anyway. Pastor John, why do you think grabbing for our phones in the morning is a default reaction for many Christians? And is there a better way forward?

Structural insights into the voltage and phospholipid activation of the mammalian TPC1 channel

Two-pore channels (TPCs) are organellar voltage-dependent ion channels that are widely expressed in both animals and plants. In mammals, TPC1 and TPC2 regulate the physiological functions of the endolysosomal system. Here, Youxing Jiang and colleagues report the structure of mouse TPC1, a sodium ion (Na + )-selective channel, in both its apo closed state and phospholipid-bound open state by cryo-electron microscopy. Along with functional studies, these data underlie the basis for the difference in selectivity and gating of mammalian TPCs compared to their plant homologues. They also provide information on the mechanisms of activation and regulation by lipid binding.

Who Cares What Christianity Teaches if it's Not Actually True?

You heard that right! I said it doesn’t matter unless Christianity is true! While moral questions still matter from a cultural standpoint, they don’t matter when evaluating the truth claims of Christianity. I was recently talking with a young woman on a flight. She is currently in a university theater program and was struggling with her faith. Her main question was in regards to the homosexuality issue. She had such a tender heart and genuinely didn’t know what to do. Coming from a theater background, she had many friends who were professing homosexuals. And though she was raised in a Christian home, she found herself doubting whether or not she could be a Christian based on what Christianity taught about homosexuality.

Dating Site Including Polyamory as Sexual Orientation Option

In January 2016 the dating site introduced some new options intended to satisfy what they perceive as a growing trend: “Couples Linking.” This new feature allows “people who identify as ‘married,’ ‘seeing someone,’ or ‘in an open relationship’ to find new individuals with whom to have relationships.” Reportedly this new feature is the result of 24% of OkCupid users being “seriously interested” in group sex and 42% being willing to date someone who is already in a relationship.

"I Just Don't Have Your Faith"

Easily the most disappointing reaction to the Gospel is an apologetic: “I’m sorry, but I just don’t have your faith.” Faith is a little like taste on this view. Some people like opera, some don’t. Some prefer spicy meals, others prefer sweet. You can’t help who you are and you can’t help what you like. So if some people have faith, and others don’t, it’s no-one’s fault. God won’t mind.

Finding Purpose in Faith

While this faith in science is certainly understandable, it does not survive close scrutiny. This is so because the problems that ail us, the questions we need answered, are questions that science simply cannot answer. After all, science is not philosophy. It does not provide meaning, however much it advances knowledge or power. Modern Americans, of all people, should recognize this limitation. We live in a culture that is deteriorating in many ways. Pleasure seems to be the principal pursuit of a large segment of the population, and despite intense efforts to find nirvana, and despite access to the best “toys” ever made, people seem to be increasingly stressed… and distressed. We seem to be experiencing a huge increase in depression and destructive behavior patterns; addictions to drugs and alcohol, gluttony leading to obesity, gambling, and pornography, to name a few. These pursuits may lessen the emotional pain for a while, but they leave the afflicted even more broken in their wake. What people lack, in increasing numbers, is a sense of belonging; some purpose or meaning to which they can devote their lives and that can make sense of the world.

Apologetics: How Can the Bible be Inerrant if Copyists Made Mistakes?

Oddly enough, when it comes to differences between biblical manuscripts, some skeptics seem to pursue a similar line of reasoning to the one my teacher followed when I asked the differences between the Gospels. “How does it help us to say that the Bible is the inerrant word of God if in fact we don’t have the words that God inerrantly inspired,” one such skeptic claims, “but only the words copied by the scribes—sometimes correctly but sometimes (many times!) incorrectly?” In other words, if there are variations among the many thousands of copies of Scripture, how can anyone reasonably claim that the Scriptures are inerrant?

What Are the Unique Worldview Challenges of Generation Z? Interview with Dr. Jeff Myers.

MYERS: I think it’s a huge, huge mistake when people say that. Apologetics and worldview training are more important than ever—and students seem to engage with them more than ever. It is different, though. They need to know how their thoughts and feelings fit with how God created reality. They won’t engage unless it affects them personally. They won’t engage unless they can imagine how they can be credible talking with their friends. They won’t engage unless they feel safe—that the adults in their lives really care and won’t be scared off when they hear about what they’re really dealing with. They won’t engage unless they have a chance to talk and ask questions as well as process new information.

God in Suffering: Our Response to Too Many School Shootings

If nothing else, hear this: God is at work in our public schools. He hasn’t left our students or teachers and abandoned our nation’s education system. The challenges and dangers we must confront in these places are not proof of God’s absence; rather, they are a reminder that our world is fallen—tainted by centuries of sin.

Responding: Is Apologetics a 'Sad Replacement' for Bible Study?

First , as you would notice upon visiting my page, I am not shy about telling other believers when their method of communication leaves much to be relationally desired. Is it necessary to handle this aspect of the question posed? Yes. I have found far too many believers “policing” the Internet for people with whom they disagree[1]; who then engage in strident and unChrist-like retorts of fellow Christians all within view of seekers, people of different faith, and people of no belief in God. If Christians want to maintain a respectable voice in the public square, they must remember Christ’s teaching that “as you wish that others would do to you, do so to them” (Luke 6:31), or Paul’s teaching of “Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others” (Phillipans 2:3-4). Though we all mess up at times, these admonitions should constantly weigh on our hearts.

Researchers Find that in Cells, Trains Run on Time | Evolution News

Another article on discusses new discoveries about muscle cells. Preliminary cells called myocytes join together into muscle fibers (myotubes), causing the completed fibers to have multiple nuclei. Those nuclei, as patients with muscular dystrophy and other tragic diseases find out, must be accurately placed for skeletal muscles to work. Do the nuclei just happen to drift into the right place? Certainly not! Chance and natural law can’t be trusted for such a vital function. The nuclei must be pulled into position by the intracellular railroad of microtubules and kinesin engines. A host of proteins and regulators position the microtubule tracks onto the nuclear envelope so that the kinesin engines will pull in the right direction. The open-access paper in Current Biology tells how this works:
