Making the Case for Christian Case Making (Video) | Cold Case Christianity

Why should we, as Christians, commit ourselves to becoming better Christian “case makers”? Why is case making an integral part of the Christian life?

School of Biblical Evangelism Express (USB) - Audio

Awesome! Can't wait until all 101 lessons are completed! I will buy them in a heart beat! I hear the lessons and sermons to and from work - 45 minutes in the morning and 1.5 hours in the afternoon M-F. What a great motivator to keep one focused on the Great Commission!!! The added benefit: by truly paying attention to the messages and repeating each lesson as needed, it takes my mind off traffic. By the time I get home I am not stressed but I am totally uplifted and ready to share the Gospel (it has actually made me a more compassionate driver, too!!). The lessons are nicely done with sound effects, back ground music, etc. Love it and highly recommend it!! (Posted on 3/30/2016)

Praying through the Rubble of Wickedness

I took my vanity and ambition out of my throat and crammed them back down where the sun doesn’t shine, much, casting a backward baleful glance at my own book, and directed her attention to the Bibles. Truly, I am the Hero, or rather Heroine of this story. I hope Jesus appreciates my sacrifice. I asked her various other questions and told her that she needed Jesus to save her, more than she needed to be uplifted. I told her to go to church. When she said that she ‘just feels so lost’ I said that’s marvelous because Jesus rejoices to find the lost one and that all she needs to do was cry out to him to rescue her. And also, for Pete’s sake, find a good church. I told her I would pray for her and got her name and then actually did pray. She said, rather resentfully I think, that she ‘never comes to B&N,’ to which I replied, ‘hahaha, neither do I, haven’t been here in years.’ She walked away disappointed holding a beautifully bound journaling bible.

J. Warner Wallace: True evil is evidence for God’s existence

Few people witness as much horrific evil as homicide detectives. I’ve certainly seen my share. But what do we really mean when we say something is evil? Are we saying we just don’t like it personally, or are we saying there are some things that are truly, transcendently, objectively evil? Is evil nothing more than a matter of opinion? If so, we could remove all evil by simply changing our minds about what we thought was evil in the first place. If we can’t eliminate evil in this way, we need to think about why and how transcendent notions of evil could exist. While evil might at first appear to be a strong evidence against the existence of an all-powerful, all-loving Divine Creator, it may actually be the best possible evidence for the existence of such a Being. Unless we are prepared to dismiss evil as nothing more than whatever fails to please our private desires or opinions, we’re going to need a transcendent standard of good by which to evaluate and identify anything as evil. As crazy as it might sound at first, the existence of true evil, the kind that transcends each of us as individuals and groups, is dependent on the existence of a true, transcendent standard of good.

10 The Life and Times of Redeemer Presbyterian Church

But Keller’s plant has lasted nearly six times that long. When he preaches his last sermon on June 25, Redeemer will be 28 years old. Over nearly three decades, attendance has soared from around 50 to more than 5,000. The congregation expanded into two, then three locations. They ministered to thousands through Hope for New York, re-imagined employment through the Center for Faith and Work, and launched a church-planting hub now called City to City.

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 .

Can You Hear God’s Voice?

Are we hearing God’s voice in the Bible as just another sliver of noise in the echo chamber of our minds? Or do we give God’s word the undistracted audience it deserves? Think through the habits of your life, the voices you listen to — does God’s voice shape and color, amplify or silence the other voices you hear? What we hear and what we listen to every day is the material that will make up our faith (Romans 10:17). Are you letting God’s word feed your faith?

‘The Most Hated Woman in America’ Remembers a Culture War Without Heroes

While O’Hair did not intend to become the face of “freedom from religion,” she did entertain an infatuation with the notion of being a “revolutionary.” Early scenes with her eldest son, Bill, feature romanticized notions of an “us against the world” perspective, and in one interview she ribs, “I do love a good fight. And taking on God and the church is kind of the ultimate, isn’t it?” In one of the most powerful moments in the film, an upbeat “This Little Light of Mine” serves as the backdrop for a sequence of scenes showing the creation and growth of the American Atheists. O’Hair tapes newspaper clippings with headlines like “The Devil’s Daughter” on the walls of her mother’s dining room, and she unwraps a box of magazines bearing the headline “Most Hated Woman in America” to the cheerful applause of her staff.

Should Christians Divide Over the Age of the Earth? Review of the New Book.

Dr. Cabal is thoughtful, kind, and engaging in the classroom. Thus, I’m not surprised to see his recent book reflect those characteristics as well. Even though he is an old-earth creationist (OEC), Cabal goes out of his way to mention that most young earth creationists (YECs) do not consider the earth’s age worth dividing over, and that many members of BioLogos, who are committed to influencing the church towards embracing evolution, have treated him and his views with kindness and respect.

19 How Could Jesus Be God if He Didn’t Know the Time of His Return? | Stand to Reason

This emptying is best understood as a voluntary limiting—or veiling—of the divine attributes. The clearest example of this is when Jesus limits His glory. If Jesus is God, shouldn’t He be glowing all the time? But He isn’t. Therefore, He must not be God. Well, not so fast!

How God Opens the Eyes of the Heart

The Bible speaks of this supernatural act in many ways. For example, it describes this supernatural in-breaking as a shining into our hearts of divine glory (2 Corinthians 4:6), and as a granting of truth and repentance (2 Timothy 2:25), and as the giving of faith (Philippians 1:29), and as raising us from the dead (Ephesians 2:5), and as new birth by the word (1 Peter 1:23; James 1:18), and as the special revelation of the Father (Matthew 16:17) and the Son (Matthew 11:27), and as the enlightening of the eyes of the heart (Ephesians 1:18), and as being given the secret of the kingdom of God (Luke 8:10).

21
Extraordinary Claims and Extraordinary Evidence

"Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence" is a phrase that was popularized by Carl Sagan but has its roots from at least the 18th century Enlightenment when the miracles of Christianity were being questioned by certain intellectual thinkers of the day. The most famous Enlightenment critic of Christianity was probably David Hume who wrote an essay called  Of Miracles in 1748 where he states, "Suppose, for instance, that the fact, which the testimony endeavours to establish, partakes of the extraordinary and the marvellous; in that case, the evidence, resulting from the testimony, admits of a diminution, greater or less, in proportion as the fact is more or less unusual." At first this statement may sound reasonable. For instance, I am more likely to believe you if you tell me you had breakfast this morning than I would believe you if you told me that you levitated off the ground this morning without anything holding you up. But does the fact that I believe you if you say you did something ordinary and I don't believe you if you say you did something extraordinary support the statement that "Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence?" Actually, it doesn't.

Why 'Anything Goes' is Dangerous

Why "Anything Goes" is Dangerous by Jonathan Morrow Having an “Anything Goes” viewpoint is dangerous. Why? Because it allows people to live with the illusion that they can do whatever they want without consequences. That they solely determine what is right and wrong…good or evil. In short, that they have the power to create spiritual and moral reality. According to Philosopher John Ladd, the idea of “I’ll do what’s right for me and you do what’s right for you “is the doctrine that the moral rightness and wrongness of actions varies from society to society and that there are no absolute moral standards binding on all men at all times. Accordingly, it holds that whether or not it’s right for an individual to act in a certain way, depends on or is relative to, the society to which he belongs.” Everyday People On Morality When we asked everyday people their views on morality for our new Explore Truth study, here’s just a few of the responses we received: “We choose what’s right and wrong.” “I feel like the rights and the wrongs kind of come from society.” “What’s right or wrong depends on a person to person basis really.

Jarena Lee

That Lee’s preaching career occurred during the Second Great Awakening signifies a willingness and desire people had to hear the gospel preached—even if by an African American woman. Though Lee did encounter resistance at times, the audiences in the West (at that time Michigan, Ohio, and Western New York) received her. Historians have argued that displaced settlers on the frontier were eager to hear preaching, and that frontier women had a particular affinity for itinerant preachers. Lee's ministry fits neatly within this spatial context. As she found success in her ministry, she did so owing to her message and her style. As revival preaching in the West had to excite audiences, Lee was no bland preacher. She recounted one service in Portsmouth, Ohio in 1839 where “the first Sabbath I spoke to the class, five fell to the floor under the influence of God's power.”

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

“…good detectives pay attention to specific adjectives and verbs and ask why the writer chose those particular words.” One should use the same approach for the early chapters of Genesis. Prof. Stephen Boyd of the Masters Seminary has done that in Coming to Grips with Genesis. He showed that Hebrew verb usage indicates with 99.99% certainty that the text there is meant to be read as plain narrative, not as some kind of poetry. In the same book, Prof. Todd Beall also showed from the Hebrew text that the early chapters are not meant to be taken figuratively.

We Actually Don’t Need a Trinitarian Revival

This is not to ignore the problems, failures, errors, and weaknesses that sometimes attend it. We don’t need to suppress any evidence in order to reject the drastic diagnosis. When I look around churches and the theological scene today, I see areas of weakness and suggestions for how evangelical Christians in particular can enter into our Trinitarian birthright more fully, more fluently, and more fruitfully. But I have never been able to embrace the idea that the state of the doctrine of the Trinity in contemporary Christian life is so threatened that drastic action is necessary.

Argument for the Early Dating of Christian Theology and Christian Writings

Two accusations by skeptics regarding the Christian faith are that the miraculous aspects of the life of Jesus were invented late and that the written accounts we now have in the Bible were also written later than the lifetimes of the supposed authors. It is reasonable to conclude that neither of these accusations are true. The theology that Jesus died for our sins and then rose from the dead is present in the Christian community within 4 years and written down within 17 years of the death of Jesus. Starting with two epistles written by Paul we can date the doctrine of the resurrection to very soon after of the crucifixion of Jesus. It is the overwhelming conclusion by ancient historians – even Christian skeptics - that Paul did actually write these letters. 1 st Corinthians was written by Paul around 53 AD, while Galatians was written sometime before 57 AD. The dating of Jesus’s death is debated, but it is either 30 AD or 33 AD. Using Paul’s writings, the logic goes as follows:[1]

Case-Making 101: How does the Bible compare to other ancient documents?

Last week we looked at the evidence for the reliability of the Bible with the early Church’s canonization process that demonstrates we can be certain that we have the right books, contrary to cultural spin. We also looked at many reasons Christians reject the Apocrypha and Gnostic books with an emphasis on the dating of those writings. With that in mind it is also important to look at other variables scholars consider when reviewing ancient documents like the Bible, one of the most important is called “textual criticism:”

'Political' Issues That Shouldn't Be So Political

As an Australian, this issue bothers me. Australia has universal health care (or a variant thereof) and so I look upon the hullabaloo over healthcare in America and am confused. In much the same way as I believe we are all to care for refugees and immigrants—and this influences my view of what policy should be—I similarly believe that, where possible, we are to look after those who are ill, injured or dying. Further, if we look in the Bible at some of the rules God gave to His people (Deuteronomy 15:7-11) we see that God designed His people and enshrined in their laws a desire and responsibility to look after the poor and unhealthy. Similarly, how can we possibly look at the health care issue and not think of Jesus’ words about caring for “the least of these”?

http://pastorrick.com/devotional/english/why-hope-isn-t-the-same-as-optimism1

The Bible isn’t saying that every event in your life will be good. You and I both know that’s just not true. But it does say that when you put your whole life together, every piece of it works together for good. It’s like making a cake. You may not like the taste of each ingredient, but when it’s all put together, you can’t keep your hands off of it. God wants to bake an amazingly tasty cake with your life, and he wants to use even the distasteful and bitter elements to do it.

Why Your Children Do NOT Need Apologetics: Correcting Misconceptions

This weekend, a blog was released titled “ Why Your Children do NOT Need Apologetics .” In it, apologetics was characterized as a fear-based recitation of doctrines which “denies the realities of human experience.” I suspect that it was written in response to the blog and podcast that Rebekah and I did the last week critiquing their Easter article. The article we critiqued was written by a children’s pastor, and it discouraged teaching children about the literal death and resurrection of Jesus, or the concept of original sin. (You can see our podcast response with extensive summary notes here .) We definitely didn’t mince words in the podcast, but neither did we throw any punches.

Discovery Said to Show Dinosaurs Walked with Their Evolutionary Ancestors

With this biblical understanding of history, let’s consider what Langer’s team knows and what they can only assume. Without evidence of a meaty meal in the dinosaurs’ stomach, we cannot know for certain what they ate. Sharp teeth can be used for more than ripping flesh. And even if these dinosaurs were carnivorous varieties (and we have no problem with that possibility—the fossil record demonstrates that many varieties of animals were carnivorous by the time of the global Flood), their placement in the fossil record would not indicate carnivory existed before herbivory. That notion is based on worldview-based assumptions, not observable science. These dinosaurs’ placement in the fossil record only indicates roughly when during the global Flood they were catastrophically buried compared to animals buried in other rock layers. (Read more about the age assumptions that are based on the fossil record in “ Doesn’t the Order of Fossils in the Rock Record Favor Long Ages? ”)

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.

45
The Only Constant in Life: Our Anchor in the Storms of Change

But perhaps the greatest gift God gives us when our circumstances won’t stop changing is that he reminds us that we are hidden in the unchangeable Christ, who is the true constant, outlasting even change (Hebrews 13:8). When we move, we aren’t really moving. When we experience pain, we aren’t really being injured. When we die, we aren’t really dying. We can’t be touched when we our identity is in the death-defeating, resurrected Christ.

46
Love the One You’re With

There are numerous legitimate reasons to leave a church, and departures are one more messy opportunity to extend gracious love. But we must have a healthy suspicion of our motives if disillusionment, restlessness, boredom, discontentment, burnout, relational conflict, and disappointed expectations are fueling our impulse to leave. Often these fruits have roots in selfish soil. We must not love the church we can’t be with — that idealized community of our imagination. We must love the one we’re with.

Black Protestants Show Strongest Support for Maternity Leave

“Black Protestants are perhaps more likely to recognize that in the absence of paid leave, this ability to be with a new child isn’t feasible for all,” Gopo said. “Making this option universally available may very well be another way of loving our neighbors as ourselves and caring for some of the youngest members of our society, issues always important to the church.”

Evidence, Knowledge, and Science: How Does Christianity Measure Up?

There is, for example, broad consensus that Julius Caesar died in the year 44 BC and almost certainly sometime within the fifth decade BC, between 40 and 50 BC. This is generally accepted as knowledge. But is this science? Well, it is not established by repeated experiment. Julius Caesar’s death was a singular event. It is thus not something we can replicate. So how do we know it is true? Well, we have inscriptions that suggest it is so, we have other evidence about the relationship between his death and various other events, and we have relatively early written accounts of his life. Is it possible that all of this evidence points us in the wrong direction? Well, maybe. But it does seem rather unlikely. We would have to come up with a very convoluted explanation indeed to explain how all of the evidence points to 44 BC but that this is entirely wrong.  Perhaps we cannot establish this with absolute certainty, but we can be pretty sure.
