1 Does God Love Evil-Doers? | Reasonable Faith

In Arabic there are more than 10 different words for love. Yes it says that God loveth not aggressors, etc... But it uses one of the 10 different words in Arabic for love. There are other words which has been used to represent God’s love for this creation which is shown in the very very beginning of the Quran “ In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.”. In Arabic it is “bismillahir rahmanir rahim”. In Arabic, when you come in depth for the words ‘beneficent’ and ‘merciful’ and their use and the context they came in. We will find that, ‘beneficent’ has been used to show God’s care and love for all of his Creation. While the word ‘merciful’ has been used to represent God’s love and care for those who believe. In that I see justice, and that is what I expect God to be. In the Quran and I quote: “ Is he who is a believer like unto him who is an evil-liver? They are not alike.” Chapter 32 verse 18. From this I can see justice, which we mostly lost in the new definition of God while it must be the most important one.

Can You Really Be Friends With Someone After a Breakup?

If you do feel like it’s the healthiest route to not be friends after the breakup, it helps to ease the sting of this by remembering that just because you’re not friends does not mean you have to be enemies. If you see each other at church, you don’t have to act like the other person doesn’t exist. There’s a difference between being friends and being friendly. You can always be kind when you do see one another. Friendship, however, is when you make an effort to see one another.

What If My Husband Looks at Porn?

We are not capable of saving our husbands any more than our husbands are capable of saving us. Both of us are creatures in need of grace. Accountability structures and rules and online limits all have their place at times. But ultimately, it comes down to you alone in those moments of temptation. It is in those moments that you can only trust Jesus to help you. And it is in those moments that you can only trust Jesus to help your husband. In a world filled with alluring sexual temptation, nothing but the blood of Jesus can wash away our sin and free us from it.

Kindle Deals in Christian Apologetics: This Week's Top Ten Best-Sellers!

Almost 60 percent of those in American evangelical churches believe that many religions can lead to eternal life. But if Jesus is to be trusted when he says that no one comes to the Father except through him, the church is failing in its mission. And it's not hard to guess why. An exclusive Jesus just isn't popular in our inclusive world. Dr. Robert Jeffress calls on Christians to recover the exclusive claims of the one they claim as Lord and Savior, not as a way to keep people out of heaven but as the only way to invite them in. He tackles questions like: Can people be saved who have never heard of Christ?; What about those who worship God by another name?; and Do children automatically go to Heaven when they die? True compassion for non-Christians doesn't lie in letting them go their way while we go ours, but in sharing the only true way with them.  ORDER YOUR COPY NOW >>>

Are Certain Prayers Just a Waste of Time?

There are other reasons too, like insecurity or a wrong view of God, but when I believe prayer is solely about outcomes, I act superstitiously. I start out complimenting Him because my dad always told me people help people they like so it can’t hurt, right? Then I usually pray about someone else’s need, to prove to God and myself I’m not selfish, all the while wondering when it would be appropriate to transition to my request. At some point, I make the move and ask God for what I want. I make sure to include “Your will be done” in some form or another just to acknowledge I’m a team player, and then I wait. Like a high school senior standing by the mailbox for a college acceptance letter. How many others applied? Are my credentials good enough? What if I don’t get in?

Radical Effects of the Resurrection

I mean, be a Christian and you’ll get your act together. Be a Christian and life will come together. It will go better for you. That’s generally the way I think we talk, we evangelize. So what’s wrong with the Apostle Paul? What’s wrong with him? If there is no resurrection, in other words, if this is it, if this is it, we’re fools. What are we doing, living like we’re living? We are of all men most to be pitied. What is wrong with Paul? Why does he say things like that? It’s not a good sell for Christianity. His answer, I believe, is that, for Paul, for the Apostle following in the steps of his Master, the Christian life was a life of freely chosen risk and suffering in the cause of love for other people in great need.

Just Give Me Jesus: A Closer Look at Christians Who Don’t Go to Church

“While many people in this group may be suffering from church wounds, we also know from past research that Christians who do not attend church say it’s primarily not out of wounding, but because they can find God elsewhere or that church is not personally relevant to them,” said Stone. “Churches need to be able to say to these people—and to answer for themselves—that there is a unique way you can find God only in church. And that faith does not survive or thrive in solitude.”

Survey: Most Americans Like the Bible, But Are Too Busy to Read It

But about six out of 10 Americans say they think they should be reading the Bible more. So if you’re feeling bad about skipping your daily Bible reading, you’re definitely not alone. Only one in five Americans actively read and study the Bible on a regular basis. ABS spokesman Geof Morin says the survey makes it clear that a lot of people wish they read the Bible, “but wishing, as you know, doesn’t make it so … They still need to make good choices about engaging with the Scriptures.”

Mr. T. on How His Christian Faith Got Him Through a Battle With Cancer

It was a test of my faith. I’m very spiritual. In the Book of Job, he was challenged [but he] kept believing in God and that’s the message I try to tell other people. Just because you believe in God, serve God, feed the hungry, clothe the naked … that doesn’t mean things are not going to happen to you. I had to practice what I preached. I try to use my experience and the fact that I grew up in the ghetto—I tell people you don’t have to rob or steal to get out of the ghetto. I was diagnosed with cancer—I tell people you don’t have to commit suicide. We’ve got good medicine now. I want people to draw strength from me.

How Do You Best Prepare Students for College? Interview with Author Jonathan Morrow.

MORROW: There are many new challenges that students face today that I address in the book, but two of the most significant are questions of Identity and Tolerance. For example, social media is not just about teenagers being shallow or narcissistic. Social media is driven by a teenager’s real need for acceptance and affirmation. That’s why Instagram and other platforms are so popular. Instagram serves as a way for many young people to feel accepted or “liked” but also for them to be rejected or ignored. But the deeper issue here is one of Identity—who am I and do I matter? That’s a powerful driving force that can lead to a lot of unwise decisions. Students need to first know and then stand in their Gospel identity—that they are perfectly loved and forgiven in Jesus and they don’t have to perform for God’s acceptance.

No Other Gospel: A Recap of The Gospel Coalition National Conference - Marissa Henley

As the worship leaders played the first few chords, the words on the screen seemed unnecessary. More than 8,000 worshippers from all over the globe began singing together, “Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty.” Joining in such a beautiful offering of praise to our Almighty God brought tears of joy. It wasn’t quite Heaven—I could feel the pain of my sore foot and the congestion of a lingering cold. But it was a preview of the life to come, and I can’t wait.

My Attachment to St. Augustine

A number of Christians have found my attachment to St. Augustine of Hippo (AD 354–430) peculiar. Some probably think St. Augustine belongs exclusively to the Roman Catholic Church, and perhaps they mistakenly assume that no Protestant can genuinely appreciate a Catholic saint. But what these Christians fail to realize is that Augustine is as historically and theologically important to Protestants as he is to Catholics (agreeing with Westminster Seminary theologian Carl Trueman’s assessment). In other words, Augustine is a universal Christian voice within Western Christendom. Reformed theologians John Owen and Benjamin Warfield shared a respectful attachment to St. Augustine. Interestingly, Augustine is not especially well liked or appreciated in Eastern Christendom among the Eastern Orthodox. For example, Eastern Christendom views him as far too pessimistic concerning original sin.

Look, the World Has Gone After Him: Prelude to Palm Sunday

I said few doubted Jesus that day. But the few who did wielded a lethal amount of earthly power. As the Pharisees watched this potent moment with unmistakable implications unfold, they said to each other, “You see that you are gaining nothing. Look, the world has gone after him” (John 12:19). But this was not resignation. The crowd’s jubilation only hardened the authorities’ resolve to kill the dead-raising Son of God.

A Short History of Bible Clutter

That is very interesting you bring up this question. I have had people push back when I am giving presentations on this topic saying, “Yes, my Bible is busy, as you say. There is a lot of stuff going on on that page. But, of course, I can read right past that and it doesn’t really hinder my reading at all.” And then I hand them one of these new Reader’s editions, which, I think, have become the biggest purchaser of these Bibles, because I hand them out to everyone saying, “Yes, you have a Bible, but you have a modern Reference Bible. You need a Reader’s edition, because that is what we aren’t doing with the Bible these days, and this is the thing that we have to recover.” Then they read it and they say, “Wow, that really is a different experience.” It changes. I don’t get to a chapter number, no stop signs. I keep reading. I read in the natural sections. When the story takes a break, maybe that is where I take a break or it changes. But I don’t have these artificial markers telling me that this is an intentional unit, and this is meant to be taken just on its own, out of the context of this bigger writing.

Hitting a Major League Pitch

If the batter has misestimated the speed of the pitch by 1.5 mph—say he estimated the pitch was coming at him at 91.5 mph or at 88.5 mph—then his swing would be late or early by a full foot of the ball. And the elevation of the pitch could be off by as much as an inch. A bat is at most 2.75 inches thick at the fattest part, and missing by an inch can cause you to miss the ball—at best hit a soft grounder or weak fly ball.

How to Raise Your Kids So They Will Remain in the Faith | Cold Case Christianity

Some good guidance here (please visit Daryl’s post for all the details). The most striking “tip” Daryl offered, however, was #4: Teach your children the Bible and about God. Who wouldn’t agree with this priority? For many of us, however, the challenge seems daunting. Do we know enough about the Bible to teach it to our children? What else do we need to know in order to effectively teach our children about God? Does this also involve making a case for God’s existence and answering the objections they will ultimately face from the culture? I think it does. Several years ago, Jon Nielson , the college pastor at College Church in Wheaton, Illinois wrote an article entitled, Why Youth Stay in Church When They Grow Up . Jon cited three important characteristics of college aged Christians who held on to their faith and were committed to their church family:

Some Bible Questions

Kevin Harris: Absolutely. Churches are often afraid of holding to anything other than tithing. I had a guy ask me last week; he said, “Kevin, tell me if tithing is for today; I just really need to know.” And he said, “I stepped out on faith the other day; I wrote the church a check, and the check bounced.” Now they're recommending me for financial counseling and things like that. And I said, “Well, buddy, God is not a slot machine that you put in some money and hope to get something back out by pulling his arm.” While he would appreciate your stepping out and your dependence, Jesus said, “Don't build a tower unless you know you have the funds to build it. Don't go against an army unless you know you have enough soldiers to go against the king and his army.” And so I told him basically what you just said there. I do appreciate the fact that he stepped out on faith, Bill, but it's just kind of a law of the universe that you don't write a hot check—you know what I mean?

I Wasn’t Ready for Marriage

Before I was ever Phillip’s bride, I was part of the Church, the Bride of Christ. Before the foundation of the world (Romans 8:29), my eternal Groom chose me in spite of the fact that I didn’t deserve him (Ephesians 1:3–4). In the midst of this wretchedness, he died for me (Romans 5:8). He clothed me in his righteousness. He adopted me as his own. He saved me. He chose my husband to echo his eternal love. He chose our marriage to echo that eternal covenant. He chose us, not because of our perfection, but because of his ability to stand perfectly in our stead. My life is his. Our marriage is his.

Lee Strobel’s Hope for Apologetics in a ‘Post-Truth’ Culture

On how apologetics has changed : “Back in the 1960s and ’70s, apologetics was lining up a guy and machine-gunning him with facts that he knew to be true, because he’d learned it in Sunday school anyway. He just needed to be reminded. That’s not true anymore. Now, it’s more what I call ‘relational apologetics.’ It’s friendships. It’s conversations. It’s dialogue where we engage with these questions, these topics on a personal level. It doesn’t just become, ‘Golly, why does a loving God allow pain and suffering?’ It becomes, ‘Where was God when we lost a child in childbirth five years ago?’”
