The Point: William Kimmel Opens Hearts

Now many were bothered by Kimmel’s use of his son’s story to argue for Obamacare. But while I have my thoughts on that too, I couldn’t shake a far more important inconsistency in our country. Namely, how many would defend the so-called right of parents to abort an unborn baby with a similar defect, had it been discovered in utero.

You Can Do A Show About Christianity, Unless You Believe It's True

Every Easter season results in a new round of television shows, magazine covers and newspaper articles casting doubt on the historicity of Jesus or the reliability of the New Testament. The major networks and news outlets are willing to talk about Jesus at that time of year, although few of them are willing to take Him seriously . NPR once featured an interview arguing for a version of Jesus that is “completely different from the one portrayed by… religious texts,” a Macleans article claimed that the Gospel authors mis-remembered, changed or invented their stories, and a Psychology Today author wrote that Jesus never even existed. CNN’s Finding Jesus is perhaps the most prominent example of this fascination with Easter season skepticism. After debuting last year, it quickly became the network’s highest rated production to date. This show examines ancient Christian relics and, week by week, demonstrates that they have little or nothing to do with Jesus of Nazareth. These articles and television productions demonstrate a principle guiding the major media outlets in our country: You can write an article or produce a series about Jesus, as long as it doesn’t claim anything about Him is true .

Pluralism & the American Religion

“When we turn now to Jesus’ external authority over the authority of the sovereign self, one of the obvious texts we go to is the Great Commission where Jesus says, ‘All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and to all the world preach the gospel, baptize them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teach them to observe everything I’ve commanded and lo, I’m with you to the end of the age.’  Here he says, ‘All authority in heaven and on earth. You don’t even give your heart to me. You don’t even let me have my way. You already belong to me. Look, I have the keys of death in hell. It’s not in your hands. It’s in my hands. I am the one who possesses all authority in heaven and on earth.’”

12 Parable of the Hidden Treasure & Parable of the Pearl of Great Price by R.C. Sproul | May 11, 2017

During Jesus’ earthly ministry, one of the primary ways He would instruct His disciples was through parables. People would gather from far and wide in order to listen to what Jesus said about the kingdom of God, and the most common way He would explain the kingdom was in parables. But what does God want us to learn from these parables? In this series, Dr. R.C. Sproul examines several parables of Jesus, exploring the rich truths they reveal about who Jesus is and what He came to achieve through His life, death, and resurrection.

What Donald Trump Could Teach Ellen DeGeneres About Diversity and Tolerance | The Stream

When it comes to people having “rights,” we could obviously debate many aspects of LGBT rights. For example, does a biological male who identifies as a female have the “right” to use the ladies’ bathroom? But right now, President Trump is not campaigning to overturn the Supreme Court’s ruling on same-sex “marriage” (again, I would be glad if he did), so I’m still not sure whose “rights” he is opposing.

It’s Time for Christians to Start Taking Climate Change Seriously

Living in a post-truth world can be difficult for those of us who simply do not understand the uncanny ability so many people have to simply dismiss facts. Working as a journalist covering climate change, global warming and clean technology for over a decade, this has been a specific problem I have had to deal with. People all over the world, both in positions of power and not, seem to believe that there is room for debate on the issues of climate change, humanity’s involvement and the need to transition to a low-carbon future.

Q & A with Dr. Craig: Why Bother?

Q: I am a very open minded person and consider all possibilities. I am open to the possibility of a God and an afterlife. I am also open to the possibility that this God could be one who demands and expects that I obey and serve him or that I would be condemned to a horrible afterlife. I have been doing some open-minded research on the subject of life after death. As of right now, it doesn't matter what anyone says to me or what claims other people present to me in regards to God's character, if he is real or not, or if I am a blind sinner or not.

You Can Defeat Distraction

You can set your mind, and you will set it somewhere — or if you leave it alone, it will go somewhere. The question isn’t whether your mind will find a home to return to, but what that default will be. Will you be preoccupied with one small thing after another: a favorite sport or team, how you look, how much money you make, how well-known you are, what you’d like to possess, what improvements you’d like to make in your earthly lives? Or will you put in the mental effort to make your mind’s home be the things of the Father (Matthew 16:23), the Son (Colossians 3:1–3), and the Spirit (Romans 8:5–7)?

Silence Is the Enemy of Love: Plea from a Christian Jew

“You not only have the right,” I offered. “You have the responsibility.” I went on to tell him how I believed that God was bringing the Jewish people back to Germany for at least three reasons: because of His love for the Jewish people, because of His love for the German church, and because of His love for the German people. God wants my people to hear the gospel and be saved. He wants German believers to know the joy of being used by God to bring His people to Himself. He wants Germans to hear the gospel from Jewish lips. And I think He wants the world to see Jews and Germans, proclaiming the gospel together. What a testimony of the love of the Lord. What a testimony of the reconciling power of the cross.

The Making of a Modern Pharisee

If we are serious about grace, and true slaves to righteousness (Romans 6:15–18), we must beware of the symptoms of gracelessness. If we refuse to believe we could be a Pharisee, we’re as vulnerable as the Pharisees who murdered the Author of life. So, how would we know if we had subtly become a modern-day Pharisee? Jesus gives us at least six signposts along the highway away from grace.

The Signs That You're Going Through a Quarter-Life Crisis

We don’t need to strive to be something we’re not. I have learned that life doesn’t need to be a competition. It’s about becoming the best versions of ourselves. Stewarding our calling inevitably requires us to muster up the courage to say no to the expectations of the world but yes to our Caller. This knowledge has helped me achieve peace and a much greater understanding of my purpose.

Those Christian Storytellers

We find ourselves in a sequence of events that don’t seem to matter. A stubborn desire to find meaning doesn’t seem to leave, though, and so we’re left gasping for cleaner air on a submarine that isn’t going to the surface anytime soon. Being uncomfortable with our own chaos, we seek order wherever we can find it, and the most promising candidate is within the realm of Story.

Your Friends Don't Need You to Fix Them

In this specific season of my journey toward knowing and experiencing God, I have found great comfort in a few friends who have chosen to show up in my mess and imperfections and just BE with me. They don’t quote Scripture verses to me when I’m feeling discouraged because they know it was used to manipulate and control me for many years. They don’t point out a silver-lining because they recognize that allowing the expression of grief is what brings healing. They don’t tell me to pick myself up by my bootstraps because they understand what it’s like to need to be carried or walk barefoot for a while.

The Lie Too Many People Believe About Purity

I can admit that I avoided purity for a long time, just for the fear that if I failed at it God would be mad at me, God would punish me, God would be disappointed in me. I’ve been learning, though, that this is not the kind of God  we serve. In Galatians, it is made clear to us as believers that it is impossible to be made right with the Lord by our works (by keeping the law, by “being pure” through our own efforts, by being “good” people), but that it is only Christ who can give us our salvation. Our obedience can never “earn” us our salvation, because it is Christ who has done all of the work (and thank God for that).

Everyone Loves Sex: So Why Wait? Interview with Author Bryan Sands.

SANDS: In order to have any impact, it is imperative that we meet Millennials (or anyone for that matter) where they are. I think it begins with listening, gaining an understanding of what they believe, why, and what their experiences are. Once we do that, we set ourselves up for fruitful conversations. I also think these conversations need to take a decidedly holistic approach, involving more than just throwing out scripture (often as proof-texts), but insights from psychology and sociology as well. The message must be more than just “because God says so.” I believe what is communicated in Scripture—but we need to meet this arising generation where they are.

True Beauty in a Victoria’s Secret World

Do you wonder about the longing in your hearts? A second kingdom calls your name. God has put eternity into your hearts (Ecclesiastes 3:11), the beauty yet to come. Clapping. Laughter “like a thousand waterfalls.” Worship. A beautiful heaven, gold-paved streets. Bejeweled walls and wide-open gates. A river like crystal. No more death, sadness, or pain. Ever. No need for the sun or moon because of the glorious light of our King, seated on his glorious throne (Revelation 21–22). He is there. Invisible now, but visible forever.

Bible Reading Is an Art

To become a good Bible reader, you don’t need a high IQ or a seminary education. You don’t need a library of biblical commentaries or a Bible scholar on speed dial. To become a good Bible reader, you simply need to commit yourself to the simple, regular habit of reading God’s word for yourself.

Christians Should Talk About Feminism More

We need our girls and women to be people who are thriving and alive. I want my daughters to be confident and joyful young women. I don’t think this is too much to ask or expect. In the words of Edmund Burke, “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” I believe we are living in a time where for too long we have chosen to do nothing. No ruffling of feathers or making of waves. But sometimes waves need to be made and feathers need to be ruffled. Sitting politely and quietly will only get us more of the same result, and that is not acceptable. Let’s beat drums and yell loudly so the generations to come know that they were fought for, so they know they are loved and valued and worth every moment of that fight.

How to Liberate Ourselves from the Perils of Platform

This finding, along with the testimony of women of color, suggests two ways to resist the temptation of platform. The first is counterintuitive: The way to liberate women from a self-centered view of their gifts is to preach a more robust vision of women’s gifts in the church. When excessive self-examination becomes another form of narcissism, women need more than a warning about platform; they also need a biblical notion of their gifts and strengths. In short, they need to know that they are needed. In 1 Corinthians 12:7, Paul reminds believers that our gifts are given “for the common good,” which means it is faithful, not selfish, to steward our gifts. It is what God expects us to do. There is no virtue in angst if we never get on with the work, so we must instill in women this sense of corporate need.

A Quick Case For Jesus' Resurrection

In this blog post, I plan on giving an overview of the evidence for the resurrection of Jesus. Contrary to popular opinion, belief in Jesus’ resurrection isn’t something one has to believe on blind faith alone, one can confirm the resurrection on the basis of powerful historical evidence. The resurrection is important because if Jesus has risen from the dead, then God has put His stamp of approval on everything Jesus said and did. God agrees with Jesus’ ministry. This means that we can put great stock into anything Jesus taught about, such as His claim to be God, the existence of angels and demons, the existence of Heaven and Hell, and that He Himself is the only way to get to Heaven. It gives good reason to believe The Bible is divinely inspired, for Jesus Himself quoted from the Old Testament and taught that it is the word of God, and He commissioned apostles who would go on to write The New Testament. After all, who would be in a better position to know whether or not the Old Testament is divinely inspired than God Himself, and since God chose Matthew, Paul, Peter, etc.

Is Christianity Reasonable? A Review of Forensic Faith by J. Warner Wallace

I could say much more about Forensic Faith , but I don’t want to steal his thunder. Honestly, I found myself saying, “Yes! Yes!” on almost every page. In all fairness, J. Warner is a good friend of mine. In fact, we’re working on a book together that focuses on reaching and equipping the next generation. So yes, I am biased. But as detective Wallace points out, bias does not necessarily prevent someone from seeking and communicating truth. And the truth is that Forensic Faith is a fresh, insightful, and much-needed book.

The Forbidden Fruit of Atheism; What question they cannot ask?

I think you may have a misunderstanding at what the “why” questions are. Certainly atheist ask “why” questions in regard to the physical world, but there is a limit to how far most will go, and Dawkins was a perfect example to bring up. What I mean is that atheist have no issue asking “why is the universe expanding?” The answer to that is physical, but when it comes to asking “why does the universe exist in the first place?” or other questions along those metaphysical or philosophical lines, you get answers from people like Dawkins or Russell that discount the question entirely and just say something along of lines of, “because.” Answering those tougher “why” questions would force them to acknowledge a world view that they are vehemently opposed to, so the question seems to be off limits and subsequently thrown out.

Christians (55%) are more likely to agree than those of other faiths (36%) or nones (42%).

What the Church Says to Terrible People

The church has the space to embrace the redemptive tension that leads to real moral transformation, rather than leaning on the limited resources of shame. We don’t lower the moral bar for “those sanctified in Christ Jesus” (1 Cor. 1:2). We’re not just saved to be “holy and blameless before God” (Eph. 1:4). Our salvation inspires lives such that even the “pagans” who “accuse us of doing wrong” will see our good works and glorify God (1 Pet. 2:12). Christian agape calls us to be not decent, but Christlike.

Why Francis Schaeffer Matters: The Church in Culture

Francis Schaeffer’s view of the church in modern culture is multifaceted yet cuts straight to the point.  He does not mince words or play clever evangelical games.  He believes one major problem with Christians is that they see things in bits and pieces.  They have failed to see that modern man’s despair has come to fruition because of a shift in worldview.  He contends that Christians should begin to think in terms of the big picture.  They should have a view of spiritual reality that is authentic and covers all areas of life.  Indeed, the Lordship of Christ covers all life and all life equally.
