Beginning Ministry and Family Life

The temptation, given your position (especially as you first begin), is to force holiness (or moral conduct) on your family (wife and children) so that they conform to an outward pattern of spirituality. This mind-set is verbalized every time you remind them, “Remember your husband/dad is the pastor, so you must act like. . . .” Of course, sinful behavior is not to be tolerated, but that is true of your family members because they are Christians, not because they happen to be related to you, a pastor. True, there are activities and social settings that you, as a pastoral family, may not be a part of because of your position, but that’s not the point. What I am warning you against is pressuring them to put on a spiritual facade—a moralistic cover-up. It is amazing (and alarming) how easy it is to preach abounding grace from the pulpit but resort to only law in the home.

Transhumanism: A Wail of Despair in the Night | Evolution News

For those who may still be unaware of this futuristic social movement, transhumanists seek to “seize control of human evolution” by harnessing the naked power of biotech, cyber tech, and computer tech, to engineer into themselves the powers of movie super-heroes and, eventually, achieve life without end. When transhumanism first emerged from the high academy such as Oxford and Yale, the focus was on radical individual redesign. Transhumanists believed that they could genetically alter themselves to increase their intelligence exponentially or, say, harness hawk genes to radically improve their eyesight. Society would, they believed, soon be divided between what Princeton biologist Lee Silver called “naturals” — e.g., the unenhanced — and the superior “gen-rich” post-humans.

Why Winning the Lottery Is Dangerous | Cold Case Christianity

Past lottery winners seem to understand that. The New Hampshire winner of February’s 559.7 million-dollar Powerball jackpot, for example, went to court recently in an effort to keep her name anonymous. Her attorney explained her concern: “She is a longtime resident of New Hampshire and is an engaged community member… She wishes to continue this work and the freedom to walk into a grocery store or attend public events without being known or targeted as the winner of a half-billion dollars.” That’s an understandable concern, given what’s happened to past lottery winners.

Why Creeds Are an Essential Characteristic of Christianity (Podcast) | Cold Case Christianity

In this podcast, J. Warner examines the historic, creedal nature of Christianity. Why are creeds so important to the Christian worldview? How early did they emerge? How can we affirm the creedal nature of Christianity in a pluralistic, relativistic culture? Jim investigates the early use of creeds and the continuing role creeds play in defining the Christian worldview.

Rapid Response: "You Can't Trust the Gospels Because They Were Written by Christians"

In our Rapid Response series, we tackle common concerns about (and objections to) the Christian worldview by providing short, conversational responses. These posts are designed to model what our answers might look like in a one-on-one setting, while talking to a friend or family member. Imagine if someone said, “I can’t trust what the New Testament says about Jesus: after all, it was written by biased Christians . I can only believe what’s been written by ancient non – Christians , and they don’t say much about Jesus.” How would you answer such an objection? Here is a conversational example of how I recently responded:

The Most Valuable Aim of Apologetics

Exodus 3 narrates the well-known account of God’s revealing Himself to Moses in the burning bush and commissioning him to tell Pharaoh to release the Israelites from slavery in Egypt. But that was only part of Moses’ mission. The other task to which the Lord called Moses was to address the Israelites. He was to command the Israelites in the name of God to engage in the largest strike in history. In absolute defiance of the power and authority of Pharaoh, they were to leave Egypt and go out to the desert to worship God at His mountain. And, of course, these events ended in the exodus.

The Bible Says, 'Knowledge Puffs Up.' Does This Mean We Shouldn't Study Too Much?

When I decided to take the intellectual aspect of my spiritual beliefs more seriously, it left some of my Christian friends scratching their heads. My newly acquired love of learning landed me on the receiving end of comments like, "Don't let your head get in the way of your heart," and "I don't need to study because I have faith," and "Be careful not to study too much because 'knowledge puffs up' ( 1 Corinthians 8:1 ).”

The Fierce Fruit of Self-Control

And how does the Spirit produce this fruit of self-control in us? By instructing us in the superior preciousness of grace, and enabling us to see and savor (that is, “trust”) all that God is for us in Jesus. “The grace of God has appeared . . . training us to renounce . . . worldly passions . . . in the present age” (Titus 2:11–12). When we really see and believe what God is for us by grace through Jesus Christ, the power of wrong desires is broken. Therefore, the fight for self-control is a fight of faith. “Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called” (1 Timothy 6:12).

The Secret to Finishing Well

So let’s just go ahead and own it: our problem is not our weakness, but our self-reliant cleverness that keeps us from relying on God. It’s our addiction to our own capability that closes the door of God’s power on our life.

We must love God with all of our intellectual capacity

Over and over in Scripture we are commanded to seek out knowledge, and over and over we are warned of the consequences if we don't. In fact, when Jesus commanded us to "love the Lord your God with all your mind," He was saying we must love God with all of our intellectual capacity. Knowledge must be held in tension with love. When it isn't, pride and arrogance can gain a foothold. But true knowledge is humbling. The more I learn, the more I know how much I have to learn.

Like Christians of all ages, we struggle to separate natural feelings that arise in living in such a culture and the leading of the Spirit. That reality should prompt us to check our “sense of God’s leading” with the careful study of Scripture. https://www.christianitytoday.com/ct/2018/may/gods-peace-is-not-always-gods.html …

Burning Hearts Are Not Nourished by Empty Heads

What do you read first when the newspaper arrives? I dive for the sports pages—an involuntary reflex action left over from a youth spent with visions of Pittsburgh Pirates and Steelers dancing in my head. The child within me still suffers more anxiety over league standings than the Falkland Islands. Old reading habits die hard. It is the same with Christian magazines and periodicals. When I first began reading Christianity Today, two columns hooked me quickly. One was "Eutychus and His Kin," the other, "Current Religious Thought." I still go first to "Current Religious Thought," for I know I will encounter some vignettes of intellectual insight to nourish my too-empty head.

For Now We Rejoice in Part: Happiness Here and Not Yet

In all these circumstances, the disciples are disciples of their Lord, “who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God” (Hebrews 12:2). Having found in him the treasure hidden in a field and the pearl of great price (Matthew 13:44–46), Jesus’s followers are willing to suffer the loss of all things for his sake (Matthew 5:11; 11:6) in order to gain what is already theirs in him by the righteousness of faith: the happiness of the kingdom upon whose throne the King of happiness rests (Philippians 3:7–21).

38 Four Crucial Questions Raised by Black Panther | Think Christian

A central element of the Black Panther story is vibranium, a material that lies beneath Wakanda and powers the country’s advanced technology. Its glow gives a sense of its potency. Vibranium is a secret unknown to those outside Wakanda, and so another question is whether Wakanda should share this power with the wider world or keep it hidden. One can see the virtue of Wakanda remaining a secret utopia, but equally intriguing would be the transformations of life and society that vibranium would bring. In a sense this is a question of stewardship. God’s creation is full of potential that continues to amaze us. For some, the goodness of the earth is a pathway to wealth, power, and influence—even dominance. To share that goodness with others is a risk. Wakanda will expose itself by going public with this resource, but as a Christian I see such a risk as a matter of stewardship.

RC Sproul: The anti-intellectual spirit of the world

We live in what may be the most anti-intellectual period in the history of Western civilization. We are not necessarily antiacademic, antitechnological, or antiscientific. The accent is against the intellect itself. Secular culture has embraced a kind of impressionism that threatens to turn all our brains into mush, and the evangelical world has followed suit, developing an allergy to all things intellectual…. We must have passion—indeed hearts on fire for the things of God. But that passion must resist with intensity the anti-intellectual spirit of the world. The entrance of that spirit into the house of God is like a Trojan horse, concealing within its belly the troops of the enemy who would beguile us with contentless religion, thoughtless action, and vacuous zeal—fire without light. Its only legacy will be a tomb for a forgotten deity inscribed with the epitaph, "To an Unknown God." — RC Sproul (from, Burning Hearts Are Not Nourished by Empty Heads)
