'They Accept Us as We Are;' Christians Join Forces With Muslim Group Hezbollah to Fight ISIS in Lebanon

The Iran-backed Shiite Muslim militant group Hezbollah, classified for many years by U.S. Intelligence as a terrorist organization, is training Christians to fight ISIS in Lebanon, and the Middle Eastern believers say their new and unlikely allies "accept us as we are."

Seven Tips for Good Christian Case Making Conversations (Free Bible Insert) - Cross Examined - Christian Apologetic Ministry | Frank Turek | Christian Apologetics | Christian Apologetics Speakers

As an investigator, I made a living conducting interviews. In fact, my agency repeatedly utilized me when they needed someone to confess to a crime. I love talking to people, particularly when the conversation is difficult to navigate. Spiritual conversations can also be difficult on occasion, and if you’ve ever tried to talk to your unbelieving friends or family, you know exactly what I’m talking about. Let me share seven things I’ve learned in over twenty-five years of interviewing. These tips were field tested in suspect interviews and jury presentations. They have direct application if you are trying to determine what people believe so you can share the truth of your Christian beliefs:

Oxford's Influential Inklings

W e must picture Oxford, during the First World War, not as the neo-medieval paradise it would like to be, but as the military compound it was obliged to become. The colleges of Oxford turned nearly overnight into hospitals and officer-training camps, strangely quiet and emptied of students, "like monasteries where all the monks have died," as Victor Gollancz remembered it. The Oxford University Roll of Service records that of 14,561 students who served in the war, 2,708 — nearly 20 percent — perished. In a society known for its masculine "clubbability," yet haunted by the memory of so many friendships severed, so many men cut down in their prime, it scarcely surprises that the surviving remnant would seek out every opportunity for male companionship. The Inklings were, to a man — and they were all men — comrades who had been touched by war, who viewed life through the lens of war, yet who looked for hope and found it, in fellowship, where so many other modern writers and intellectuals saw only broken narratives, disfigurement, and despair.

Naturally, then came a few minutes of talking about death. He said he once had an albino rat named “Ronald McDonald” that contracted cancer and was put out of its misery by Stevens’s father, who placed it in a coffee can and smashed it with a hammer. He said his great grandmother died at age 100 when Stevens was seven, and that his family made him look into her coffin before presenting him with the Tibetan Book of the Dead and the collected poems of Sylvia Plath. He said his parents were fans of the mystic Edgar Cayce, whose preaching about reincarnation frightened the young Stevens, who’d seen more than a few zombie movies.

The American Conservative

The most adamant opposition to my argument is likely to come from protagonists of secular reason—a cause represented preeminently by the Enlightenment. Locke and Jefferson, it will be asserted, not Jesus and Paul, created our moral universe. Here I cannot be as disarming as I hope I was in the paragraph above, for underlying my argument is the conviction that Enlightenment rationalism is not nearly so constructive as is often supposed. Granted, it has sometimes played a constructive role. It has translated certain Christian values into secular terms and, in an age becoming increasingly secular, has given them political force. It is doubtful, however, that it could have created those values or that it can provide them with adequate metaphysical foundations. Hence if Christianity declines and dies in coming decades, our moral universe and also the relatively humane political universe that it supports will be in peril. But I recognize that if secular rationalism is far more dependent on Christianity than its protagonists realize, the converse also is in some sense true. The Enlightenment carried into action political ideals that Christians, in contravention of their own basic faith, often shamefully neglected or denied.

Courage that Counts

Let’s get even more personal. What sins are publicly confessed in your church? Consult a list such as Galatians 5:19–21. Maybe your church talks often about sins such as sensuality. Do you also seek forgiveness for strife? Envy? Rivalry? We cannot simply dismiss the world’s dismal view of the church as evidence that we’re living faithfully for Jesus. Outsiders see our churches as more than content to baptize a conservative utopia where government punishes other people’s sins and doesn’t touch our freedom, consumerism, and inequality. They think we’re in it for ourselves. They don’t see Christianity as caring for the world. They don’t see how faith in Jesus makes any difference for everyday problems such as lack of access to quality education and job opportunities. We talk about religious freedom, and they hear us pleading for special privileges. We talk about conversion, and they hear us recruiting new Republican voters. We talk about courage, and they hear us pining for the black-and-white 1950s.

Kirsten Powers: The Rise of the Intolerant Left

This actually just happened, so it's not in my book: [Scholar] Christina Hoff Sommers has been on campuses lecturing about feminism for the past 20 years, and she’s a critic of gender feminism and talks instead about equity feminism. In April, at two different events , one at Georgetown and one at Oberlin, she had to have campus security protection because the students were posting things that had the administration so alarmed for her safety. She has been a critic of the rape statistics that are cited to show there’s an epidemic of rape on campuses, so she’s been deemed a "rape apologist," even though she’s obviously not denying rape; she’s talking about statistics. Some Oberlin students wrote a letter to the editor before she came and said, “There’s nothing we can do to stop her from coming here, and so let’s stand together in the face of this violence.” And she hadn’t even spoken yet.

If You See Something, Say Something

I don’t usually get mad at news stories. Not anymore. After 20 years of working at CT, I’m used to reading about human sin. Part of my job used to include sifting through every religion news tidbit and highlighting the top stories for our online readers. The daily drumbeat of ministry leaders resigning or being fired for moral failure was so common that I rarely noted it. But it was demoralizing. During one period, I kept hoping for a break in the streak. After one unbroken month of moral failure stories, I sought out spiritual help. My crisis passed.

One of the best parts of Logic on Fire is the window it opens into Lloyd-Jones’s personal life. To hear his daughters talk about how much their father loved their mother is priceless.

Gather God’s People

Gather God ’ s People  aims to “aid you in your biblical understanding of corporate worship, in how to best plan for it, and in how to effectively and faithfully conduct it so that God alone is passionately praised by his redeemed people” (15). The authors divide the book into three sections. In Part 1, they give us a theological understanding of biblical worship (19–56). Part 2 primes us on planning worship services—in particular, reading, praying, and singing the Word of God as the primary elements of corporate worship (57–84). Part 3 discusses leading worship services from the standpoint of the church’s elders (85–119). In other words, if Part 2 is about the elements that should be present, Part 3 is the “how-to” for leaders to implement them each Sunday.

Another Season of ‘24’ Is in the Works

The only question is whether Agent Bauer will return when the show comes back. Though it’s hard to imagine 24 without Kiefer Sutherland, back in January, Fox Television Group Chairman-CEO Dana Walden hinted that a new spin on the show could be in the works. He told reporters, “Potentially, he won't be in this installment. If the storytelling is exciting enough, the real-time element—that show really owned that clock—so many production elements are unique to that show. I look at everyone who surrounded Kiefer in the last installment, and I think it could work.” Is he telling the truth. Is this just an elaborate ruse to hide the truth? What exactly are they hiding? ...

How the Church Can Reach Nominals and Seculars

I think most of our evangelism methods, particularly many of the seeker-movement methods from the 80s and 90s really appealed to people’s religious memory. A lot of it was saying to people, “This is not your mama’s church—we are updated and rocking. Now, you come back and be a part of it.” So they would say, “Okay. I never disliked the church, but I’ll go and be a part of it if it is updated.”

Her Children Arise and Call Her Blessed

For most, there’s some bitter flavor somewhere. We live in a fallen world. All mothers are sinful — even Jesus’s own mother knew well her need for a Savior (Luke 1:47) and for God’s mercy (Luke 1:50). Whether your own mother monumentally failed you, or you’re a mother who’s all too aware of how you’ve failed your children, there is goodness and grace to acknowledge and appreciate in almost every situation, even when deeply tarnished by sin.

“Whoever Would Save His Life Will Lose It” — A Charge for Graduates

Jesus called the crowd and his disciples to himself, and then called for them to follow him. The logic of Christian discipleship is unlike any other logic you will ever hear. He who would save his life will lose it, whoever loses his life for the sake of Christ and his gospel will save it. If anyone is ashamed of Christ and of his words in this generation, the Son of Man will be ashamed of him when he comes in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.

Why Foolishness is Better than Self-Esteem |

If seeing Jesus meant looking like a child and climbing a tree, Zacchaeus was humble enough to do it. We must also learn self-forgetful humility. As we seek to walk with Jesus, we cannot look at ourselves and then look out at the world. If we do, we will allow the world to dictate our actions and not Jesus. But if we get lost in seeing Jesus in everything we do, then we will see the world through one lens–Jesus is Lord. The opinion of the world will be of little significance. And if the world’s opinions do not rule us, then we are free to live for Jesus in all things. No longer will we fear man. Rather, we will display to the world a hope-filled transforming fear of God.

Renewing Your Mind | What About Human Freedom? | May 11, 2015

We also find God’s directing of human decisions in the most cataclysmic event in history—the crucifixion of Christ. This event did not sneak up on God as if He did not expect it, but it was ordained from eternity. Acts 2:23 confirms God’s ordaining this event saying Jesus was “delivered by the determined purpose and foreknowledge of God.” Later we see that God used free human agents to bring about His purposes: “Indeed Herod and Pontius Pilate met together with the Gentiles and the people of Israel in this city to conspire against Your holy servant Jesus, whom You anointed. They did what Your power and will had decided beforehand should happen” (Acts 4:27–28 NIV). While Judas, Herod, Pilate, and all the people who condemned Jesus acted freely, God had ordained beforehand what would occur in order to bring about the glory of redemption. Through Christ’s death all His people would be saved. God would be glorified and His people would taste the happiness that comes through communion with God. God does not compel people to act contrary to their own desires, but uses their free decisions to bring about His glorious will.

Gay and celibate: Some Christians affirming their homosexuality but pledging to forgo sex

“If someone chooses to be celibate or chooses to not marry because they feel God has called them to that, that’s one thing,“ said Rev. Leonard. “But to choose that based on sexual orientation is to deny the gift of sexuality that God has given us, and I don’t think that’s a part of God’s plan. When I read the sacred texts and read Scripture through the loving lens of Jesus Christ, I don’t see a condemnation of same-gender loving relationships. What I see over and over again is the reoccurring theme of love.”

Did Pam Geller NEEDLESSLY Offend Muslims?  An Open Letter to Dr. Michael Brown

Dear Dr. Brown,  I come to you as a brother in Christ, and one of your biggest defenders.  I have defended you in the comments below your Charisma articles from believers who continually slander you for being bold in your quest for sharing the truth about the dangers of homosexuality.  So please understand I come as a friend (trying to sharpen iron), not as a foe. In one Facebook post you wrote, “I am committed to boldly proclaiming Jesus even if it means death.  I'm not committed to NEEDLESSLY offending those I want to reach."  Your comment reiterates the sentiments from your recent article on the Muhammad cartoon contest in Texas:  “And so, while I defend Geller’s right to hold the contest and, to repeat, while I commend her courage and boldness, I personally believe it is an UNNECESSARY provocation of Muslims…”  I emphasized NEEDLESSLY and UNNECESSARY because that is the crux of my disagreement with your comments.   You seem to believe the offense was needless while Pamela Geller, I, and many others believe that it was needed.

One Mother's Thoughts On Raising a Son | The Junia Project

Hello, I’m a long time junia reader but have never commented until now. I so appreciate the content of this article and wanted to add a few more suggestions for what a mother can do whether your raising boys or girls. I’m currently a mother of two girls and I’m awaiting a boy and girl twins in the next month. I’ve made it my mission to help my girls see the mother side of God. So many books, music, movies, and evangelical theology is centerented around men and father God. This has to change, especially for our children. I’ve started changing words of bible songs from “father Abraham” to “mother Sarah had many daughters,” and from “he’s got the whole world in his hands” to “she’s got the whole world in her hands.” I’m planning on taking them to churches to see women preaching and I’m on the hunt for gender neutral books. And movies with a female role model and heroine. It’s not that I think we have to stop using “he” for God, there just needs to be consistency using “she” too because for budding little theologians like my 4 yr old, pronouns matter.

34
Should We Be Saying ‘It’s a God Thing’?

Not sure I agree. Often it is our definition of what is "good" and "bad" anyway. However, my issue is that there is a role of sin, free-will, and an enemy that this doesn't seem take into serious account. ( I know this is the theological debate for the ages.) I personally believe God allows and makes good of everything, but I don't think everything starts out as a "God thing." Sometimes it is a "sin thing" that grace forgives immediately and redeems eventually. I do agree that we need to stop throwing that phrase at people who are going through something or when we want to justify our own behavior when God has turned it around for us.

Denzel Washington to College Grads: ‘Put God First in Everything You Do’

Hollywood superstar Denzel Washington was the commencement speaker at the graduation for Dillard University this weekend, and he gave the 218 students in attendance some pretty great advice : “Put God first in everything you do … Everything that I have is by the grace of God, understand that. It's a gift … I didn't always stick with Him, but He stuck with me.” He also told the graduates to not “be afraid to fail big” and reminded them that no matter “how much money you make, you can't take it with you.” He encouraged the students to live a life of prayerful gratitude:

Why I Wore the Same Thing All Week

Kahl wrote in Harper’s Bazaar that she felt her “male colleagues were taken seriously no matter what they wore.” I’m not sure that’s true, but women do seem to worry about it more. According to the Today Show survey, two-thirds of women worry about their appearance at least once a week, more than they worry about finances, health, family/relationships, or professional success. I know that I’d rather be working on my career or relationships or even my health than picking outfits. (In fairness, some take more pleasure in a well-chosen skirt or scarf than I do; I prefer functional clothes that fit well, look professional, and get me through the day in relative comfort.)

What Proximity is Worth

This is not to diminish the goodness of my digital friends, contacts and social network; nor the value in attending annual conferences like Q. It’s just to say (and it probably goes without saying) that the “back home” relationships, particularly in the local church, should be the priority. But this is harder than it sounds. It’s easier to find a tribe of like-minded kindred spirits online or at national conferences; much harder to make community work with the “hand you’ve been dealt” in physical proximity. As my pastor likes to say, it’s often harder to love and serve the guy across the street, the crotchety landlady, the awkward coworker, than it is to go on a mission trip to Myanmar or support a cause on the other side of the world. People who go to the ends of the earth or take up “radical” calls are to be commended, of course, but the “ ordinary ” calling of domestic faithfulness and commitment to community is never to be diminished. Augustine is right: We should show “special regard” for what and who is right in front of us.

For more resources visit: http://www.reasonablefaith.org In February 2015, Dr William Lane Craig visited Rutgers University in New Jersey at the invitation of the campus Christian group Ratio Christi. He gave an evening lecture on the subject “The Existence of God and the Beginning of the Universe” to a packed auditorium of several hundred students. Although some pushback was anticipated, the audience, which was composed of both believers and nonbelievers, proved to be very open, and a wonderful time of interaction for an hour and a half afterwards took place.

Are Conservatives to Blame for Rise of 'No-Fault Divorce' in America?

"As with the Moral Majority, however, the Christian Coalition seldom addressed divorce. These are but a few of the pro-life, pro-family organizations that highlighted the benefits of marriage but rarely mentioned divorce," MacPherson said. "The fact that the divorce rate is higher in red states than in blue states, may have something to do with the inability of conservative organizations both political and religious to gain traction for repeal of no-fault divorce. If not crusaders for no-fault divorce, conservatives at least have become complicit in accepting no-fault divorce."

"I Choose at Once to Love My Sister and Disagree With Her on Gay Marriage."

Ultimately what I care about is not her view on any particular issue—no matter how personal—but the actual content of our relationship. Of course being gay is a huge part of who I am, but it’s definitely not all that I am. Most of all, I care about how Elizabeth and I relate to one another. I care that she respects my feelings and my relationship with my partner, Becky. Really, it comes down to something very simple: I choose at once to love my sister and disagree with her on gay marriage.

Sean and Josh McDowell on the Impact of Reasonable Faith

For more resources visit: http://www.reasonablefaith.org/donate In today’s post-Christian culture, more and more young people are being challenged on the central beliefs Christian have held dear for centuries. Even those raised in the church can fall into a season of doubt. Just listen to well-known speaker and author Sean McDowell, son of renowned apologist Josh McDowell: "I grew up in a home where I learned how to defend Christianity, but hit a point in my life of serious doubts. I was seriously questioning my faith, and relied heavily upon apologetics. I thank God for two professors in particular, William Lane Craig and JP Moreland, whose writings and talks helped me systematically work through my doubts.” Both Sean and Josh know that everyone has a faith story, but not everyone knows the solid reasons upon which their faith rests. Part of the calling of Reasonable Faith is to change that. We’re here to provide intelligent, winsome answers for those who are seeking to find the truth of the Gospel. But we need help from our friends. When you become a sustaining partner of $50 or more each month, you will receive Dr.

Archbishop Welby Says His Worst Hate Mail Are From Christians; Points Out Lack of 'Secure Tolerance' in Faith Groups

The Archbishop of Canterbury the Most Rev. Justin Welby said that the worst "poison pen letters" he receives are from other Christians. The leader of the Anglican Communion said that Christian groups are failing to show tolerance to one another, and said that religious leaders should look to confront the "profound differences" between faiths.

50 Why I Am a Christian - Kindle edition by John Stott. Religion & Spirituality Kindle eBooks @ Amazon.com.

In a time when many Christian authors recommend the claims of Christian faith by descriptions of faith encounters and invitations to "dance with the mystery," Stott, author of many foundational apologetic works, offers a clear and compelling account of the theological basis for his own belief. He begins by explaining the sense of God's own pursuit of him, providing illustrations from the lives of famous Christians with similar experiences. He continues with a logical examination of the claims and character of Jesus as seen in Scripture. The last section discusses the nature and needs of human beings, explaining how those needs are fully met through the life, death and resurrection of Jesus. The book concludes with a simple invitation for the reader to respond to the claims of Christ personally, offering a sample prayer. For some readers, the book will seem overly structured, since Stott frequently reviews the logical points of each section. For those accustomed to arguments conducted by way of emotive stories, his reliance on logic may feel a bit dry. But readers of a more analytical temperament will find a compelling discussion of the claims of Christ in a remarkably readable, brief form.
