Watch a Man Age 16 Years in 3 Minutes Via Daily Selfie

Back at the end of 1998, before the term "selfie" had even been coined, JK Keller decided he was going to start taking a picture of his face every single day. He recently published the full grid of 16 years worth of daily photos on his website, and he also made an oddly mesmerizing time-lapse video of all the photos set to crazy music. According to his site, Keller plans to continue the project until he dies. "Initially, I thought of the project focusing on the differences that one can see in the self from day to day," he wrote. "As the project grew and grew, it became more about the process of the whole. I began to look at the long-term changes that occur parallel to the short term changes. These changes will become more and more apparent as the project ages 20-30+ years. Now I’m looking towards the end. It’s a morbid proposition, but something that must be faced." That is a lot of pictures ...

Lee Strobel and HBU Launch The Center for American Evangelism

“We have reached a point of crisis,” said Strobel. “Too many young people are leaving the faith. Few Christians are able to effectively share Jesus with others. At many churches, reaching spiritually lost people falls to the bottom of their priorities.” Strobel will be joined by two other veteran leaders in evangelism, Mark Mittelberg and Gary Poole. Mittelberg, a bestselling author and one of the most astute evangelism strategists in the country, will serve as executive director of the Center. Poole is the nation’s primary innovator of “conversational evangelism” and using small groups to reach spiritual seekers with the gospel. He will serve as one of the Center’s directors, along with Strobel. “The Case for Grace is Lee Strobel's most personal book yet. He makes the case for the work and presence of Jesus from the inside out. This book will not only feed your mind—it will heal your heart.” – Pastor and bestselling author John Ortberg “We believe the Center can become an influential force in bringing the Gospel to America in unique and relevant ways,” said Strobel.

Abstract | De novo synthesis of a sunscreen compound in vertebrates

Ultraviolet-protective compounds, such as mycosporine-like amino acids (MAAs) and related gadusols produced by some bacteria, fungi, algae, and marine invertebrates, are critical for the survival of reef-building corals and other marine organisms exposed to high-solar irradiance. These compounds have also been found in marine fish, where their accumulation is thought to be of dietary or symbiont origin. In this study, we report the unexpected discovery that fish can synthesize gadusol de novo and that the analogous pathways are also present in amphibians, reptiles, and birds. Furthermore, we demonstrate that engineered yeast containing the fish genes can produce and secrete gadusol. The discovery of the gadusol pathway in vertebrates provides a platform for understanding its role in these animals, and the possibility of engineering yeast to efficiently produce a natural sunscreen and antioxidant presents an avenue for its large-scale production for possible use in pharmaceuticals and cosmetics.

Debate Overview: Pro-Life Incrementalism vs. "Abolitionist Immediatism" - Gregg Cunningham vs. T. Russell Hunter

I’ve been looking forward to this one, folks. Here we have a debate between Gregg Cunningham and T. Russell Hunter on “Pro-Life Incrementalism vs. Abolitionist Immediatism.” T. Russell Hunter, a member of the group “Abolish Human Abortion,” argued for “Abolitionist Immediatism,” which is effectively the position that we must only work for the immediate ban of abortion. He issued a challenge to so-called “pro-life incrementalists”–those who would allow for “gradual” steps to legislate abortion (i.e. banning abortions for gender selection, etc.)–to debate the topic. Gregg Cunningham, Executive Director of the Center for Bioethical Reform, took up the challenge.

Seven Men: And the Secret of Their Greatness

Publishers Weekly Metaxas’s (Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy) newest biographical effort deftly details in brief the lives of “seven of the greatest men who ever lived”— George Washington, William Wilberforce, Eric Liddell, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Jackie Robinson, Pope John Paul II, Chuck Colson— with the hope that they may serve as role models for adolescents and fathers confronting what he calls “a crisis of manhood.” The men are as diverse as they are fascinating, with his list ranging from Christian leaders to sports stars. Metaxas highlights three things in each life: the critical issues and events each man confronted; the inner strength they possessed to face adversity; and the contours of a Christian faith that framed their work. While Metaxas is forced by the need for brevity to gloss over certain biographical details and skirts thorny issues with sometimes glib commentary, the reader will learn something, as Metaxas reveals surprising or little-known facts about each man. Although Metaxas, an evangelical Christian, might have included interfaith examples, readers of different religions can appreciate these men and seek to emulate their more laudable qualities.

In a dramatic shift, the American church is more evangelical than ever

In their latest study, Pew identified evangelicals two ways. In most of their data, they consider affiliations of denominations that have been historically evangelical. Using this measure, evangelicals declined as an overall percentage of the population from 26 percent in 2007 to 25 percent in 2014. In terms of raw numbers, however, more Americans are evangelical today than seven years ago — 59.8 to 62.2 million.

Republican Lawmakers: Scott Walker Dazzles on Capitol Hill - Breitbart

It was great. Just being connected with the prime minister. In fact, a number of people afterward said they somehow thought we had known each other before because we hit it off well. Obviously they do their research, they knew my comments about Iran and the concerns I had with the president’s proposal. They’d heard about the effort that I had stressed about how the American people want to have a renewed relationship with Israel that’s a positive one, as an ally and not what we say today under President Obama. But probably the most interesting thing for me was not just meeting with the prime minister and leaders in the Knesset and others; it was literally this past Monday being up in a helicopter all day going around the country. From Jerusalem to the Jordan Valley, up to the Golan Heights, we literally landed, got out and saw Syria and could see Lebanon off in the distance. To think about the Islamic State and Hezbollah being that close, then getting in the helicopter and going down to the Sea of Galilee over Nazareth, over to Tel Aviv and then down to Gaza, and getting out again with Israeli soldiers and seeing just where things had occurred even in the last year… You could see how close the threats were… You just can see why they are so concerned.

In Praise of the Dying Art of Civil Disagreement

Later that evening, a young research student commented to me that it was amazing to see such a trenchant but respectful disagreement on an issue that typically arouses visceral passions. He added that he and those of his generation had “no idea” (his phrase, if I recall) how such things should be done. Later in the week, my youngest son confirmed that he too had never seen civil disagreement on a matter of importance in the university classroom. This is an ominous, if fascinating, indictment, for I had simply done what I had seen modeled when I was an undergraduate: Vigorous disagreement in the classroom followed by friendly conversation in the pub. If we no longer have a university system which models ways of civil engagement on such matters, then the kind of civic virtues upon which a healthy democracy depends are truly a thing of the past.

5 Ways Porn Ruins Relationships

"As a guy, I know the temptations involved with pornography" Can we stop with this rhetoric that says that it's normal for guys to struggle with porn, but if women struggle, it's the exception? I would say that in this internet age, the temptations are everywhere for both genders to see and be tempted by. As you point out, porn is extremely isolating-- but I would argue that it is even more isolating for women, because the conversation in the church (when the church dares to even talk about porn) is all about how MEN struggle, and women feel completely alone. I appreciate that throughout the article, you used he/ she when referring to porn users, but the phrase I've quoted still sends the message that it's totally normal for guys to struggle with porn, while for women, it's not. Just my 2 cents :)

Atheist gets her PhD in astronomy and astrophysics and finds evidence for God

If anyone is interested in how this works, I’ll describe it, but for now I’ll spare you the gruesome details. Suffice it to say that an amazing convergence of physical properties is necessary in order to study deuterium abundances in the early universe, and yet this convergence is exactly what we get. I remember being astounded by this, blown away, completely and utterly awed. It seemed incredible to me that there was a way to find the answer to this question we had about the universe. In fact, it seems that every question we have about the universe is answerable. There’s no reason it has to be this way, and it made me think of Einstein’s observation that the most incomprehensible thing about the world is that it’s comprehensible. I started to sense an underlying order to the universe. Without knowing it, I was awakening to what Psalm 19 tells us so clearly, “The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.”

When Hope and History Rhyme

This view is not just foolish, it is dangerous. The Nazis were sure that they were on “the right side of history,” as were the communists.

Mike Adams - A Queer Alliance Against Free Speech

Stony Brook University’s Graduate Queer Alliance (GQA) has managed to elevate opposition to free speech to a Zen Art. The group recently demanded that their university apologize simply for hosting my friend Frank Turek in a debate that had nothing to do with homosexuality – that is until his opponent, Michael Shermer, interjected the issue into the debate. It is worth noting that the audience actually booed Shermer after he continued to lecture them on how they would all some day accept same-sex marriage.

How a Young Woman Talked About Jesus in a Public School | Jim Daly

Karen, a parent in Massachusetts: “Thank God we just found out about Day of Dialogue … It is an answer to prayer. We live in a very liberal area and the opposition to Christian beliefs is harsh. Please pray for our students as they express their beliefs.” She added: “The events of Diversity Week and the Day of Silence at [our high school] have become fanatical, even to the point now that … unisex bathrooms are on the way.” Day of Dialogue is a crucial resource for their family, because “both of my kids have been harassed, even by their longtime friends, for their Christian beliefs. We believe it is truly our right and responsibility to exercise our free speech in a loving, Christian manner.”

What Being Pro-Life Means in Light of the Death Penalty

Darryl, I've given some thought to your viewpoint of Genesis 9, and I am just getting stuck. If I understand you correctly, you say that the shedding of blood covers every incident where someone dies at the hands of another (accident, self-defense, war, punishment and homocide). What I can't reconcile is why, then, would God command the Israelites to go into Canaan and put to death every man, woman and child? Was He condemning His people to a violent demise? What about all of the stonings that took place in the Old Testament as a result of carrying out God's law to the Israelites? Did God also condemn the executioners to die as well? Am I to live in fear because I cast my vote to execute a convicted murderer? If you walked into your house and someone was trying to kill your child, would you not defend your child (even if it meant killing the attacker)? Does that mean you will die a violent death? Has anyone since the days of Noah who has ever taken a life died of natural causes? It seems to me, in light of these questions, that this Scripture was indeed a command from God to Noah instead of a proverb.

The Cure for Hypocrisy

Being a Christian doesn’t mean achieving perfection. It means we are all about Jesus. We are all for Jesus. It means we are invested in a relationship with Jesus. The only way to do that is to spend time with Him. We pursue Him first. We make Him our highest priority. It’s not a bumper sticker or a Facebook status. Being a Christian is about having a radical, life-altering relationship with our God and King.

Why Boko Haram and ISIS Target Women

Why does war and terror target women in particular? The reasons are as numerous as they are horrid. Sometimes a group intends to infect the enemy’s women with disease in order to destabilize a community. One of the countless women raped during the Rwandan genocide recounts her abusers, Hutu men with HIV/AIDS, saying , “We are not killing you. We are giving you something worse. You will die a slow death.” Some women get sold as brides by their families to placate an insurgent group; others as sex slaves to fund a group’s own military campaign. And throughout history, systematic rape has been used to wipe out an enemy’s numbers and increase one’s own.

Every Square Inch: An Interview with Bruce Ashford on Cultural Engagement

The better option is to realize that God’s grace restores the natural realm, and that it won’t completely or comprehensively restore that realm until Christ returns. What that means is that the salvation God has given us is one what should affect all of our activities in the natural realm. Christ’s Lordship is as wide as creation, and therefore as wide as culture. He saved us so that we would bring every square inch of our (cultural) lives under submission to his Lordship. We do this as a matter of witness and obedience, and as a preview of the day when Christ returns to renew and restore the universe. Our existence in the renewed universe will be profoundly cultural, replete with art, architecture, song, and so forth.

Why Are Christians So Serious about Everything?

Part of Jesus’ Good News to us is that His burden is easy and light. I have seldom met people who really live this out, but when I do, there is one thing they all have in common: They don’t take themselves too seriously. Actually, they’re kind of weird. They laugh a lot. It doesn’t take a lot to impress them, and they are completely in awe of the little stuff. They aren’t waiting for their big break in ministry or culture. They are not comparing themselves to others. They take God seriously, and because of that, they live freely.

Having the Talk with the Kids

The liturgy, I told them, is not something we do on Sunday out of mere obligation, or because we have nothing more fun to do on Sunday morning. The liturgy is preparing all of us to live our faith with courage and joy. The time of testing is coming, indeed it is upon us every day. You kids are protected from a lot because your parents are vigilant, but we won’t be able to be there all the time. The liturgy, and the life of our church, exists in part to form your consciences and make you strong enough to choose the good when there is nobody around to make you do so. You can’t imagine how strong the forces are in this culture attacking your faith, and telling you it’s all a lie, I said. But you’re going to face this. In the liturgy, and in liturgical prayer, is our strength.

10 Questions on Dating with Matt Chandler

I have often times recommended someone hold off dating until the season that they were in with the Lord has changed. I told a young man last year that, because of where he was in his relationship with the Lord, he should hold off pursuing a girlfriend until he had given himself back over to growing in his relationship with the Lord. It wasn’t just that he was in the desert or just stagnant, but that he had really, I believe, been walking in sin. He wasn’t in God’s word, he wasn’t praying, he was hit or miss in the weekly gathering, and he was hit or miss in his home group. Guys were pursuing him and he was avoiding them. He had a relational conflict with some guys, and he was refusing to connect with them and reconcile. I recommended to him that this would be a really foolish time to date, and it would end in heartbreak, either his heart or the heart of some poor girl at our church.

The updated data contradict one of the most frequently asserted global warming claims – that global warming is causing the polar ice caps to recede.

You’ve been going to Zambia for a number of years, and now you’ve made the decision to move to Zambia with your family. I went for the first time seven years ago. Paul Washer, a dear friend of mine, told me about the work there among the Reformed Baptists of Zambia. … I went and preached at a conference that they do annually at the end of every August, a pastors’ conference and family conference. I came back seven years ago, and I told my wife, “I think I want to be buried there.” It was so incredibly impactful, and the compatibility between the work to which God has called me, the preparation that God has given me, and the needs in that place, as well as many other things, have really just sort of caused it to be a priority for me for the last seven years. … My wife and I and our seven youngest children were there this August, and it just became evident to us that now is the time. We submitted that to our church and to our eldership to see what the Lord would say through them and whether or not they would confirm that this is what the Lord would have us to do.

Biblical “Faith”: Trusting What Can’t Be Seen on the Basis of What Can - Cross Examined - Christian Apologetic Ministry | Frank Turek | Christian Apologetics | Christian Apologetics Speakers

Christianity is grounded in the evidence of the eyewitness gospel accounts. These documents make claims about the history of the First Century and the birth, life, ministry, death and resurrection of Jesus. As such, these claims are both verifiable and falsifiable . As we grow in our confidence related to the reliability of the Gospels , our reasoned trust in what they claim (and what they promise) will also grow. The gospels describe many “things not seen”. God is immaterial and invisible, and many of the promises of God are yet unfulfilled. But we can trust the things we can’t see on the basis of the things we can. We can move in faith toward the future on the basis of what God has demonstrated in the past.

Searching for Sunday

Greg Thornbury has written about the importance of understanding how, for better or worse,  biography shapes theology . Similarly, in his new book,  Blind Spots,  Collin Hansen observes how our experiences of faith create “blind spots” that cause us to ignore the stories, strengths, and pains of Christians whose experiences don’t match our own. The greatest value of Evans’s book for me was the fact that she  does  speak for many with experiences unlike mine. These are experiences worth being aware of and responding to with compassion—particularly for those of us prone to assume disagreement is either a certain sign of apostasy, a failure of the intellect, or simply weak faith. If I fail to listen, engage, and acknowledge these stories, I won’t be much use to struggling millennials as anything more than a sparring partner.

I certainly wouldn’t worry. Because in the course of the conversation, you would ask clarifying questions of me and try to understand my view—and I’d do the same for you. Maybe we’d get frustrated, but I’m nearly certain that we wouldn’t actually hurt each other. Maybe I’m naive, but I think we’d pull it off.

Christian florist Barronelle Stutzman explains what it is like to face persecution

I think a lot of Christians are just thinking that if they revert to a “truer” understanding of Christianity – one that emphasizes making people feel good and God’s love over the moral law and sin – then they can have their Christianity and the approval of their non-Christian friends. It’s so nice to have lots of friends, isn’t it? You feel good about yourself because everyone likes you. Well, I think this case shows the problem with that. It turns out that making Christianity about us and our feelings is never going to be enough for the people who are busy sinning. What they want is enthusiastic celebration and a full repeal of all rules and regulations on sexuality. Which is, of course, not compatible with lifelong, exclusive, complementarian marriage. So we have a choice. Either we celebrate behaviors that make marriage go away, or we harm the children, not to mention being disloyal to God. This is going to take some wisdom to navigate.
