1 Are There Really “Gay Christians”? | Answers in Genesis

Even using “gay” or “lesbian” as a secondary category of defining a Christian introduces confusion. Some Christians argue that while identity in Christ is of first importance for a believer to grasp, we should also encourage them to maintain this other identity as a “gay Christian,” as a way of classifying their experience. But homosexuality is an identity issue—the sinful identity fights against the new identity in Christ. Many people dealing with SSA will be tempted to say what Matthew Vines has—that being homosexual is simply part of who they are—and to treat that as a secondary identity to or as a replacement for their identity as a new creation in Christ.

Truthbomb Apologetics: Abdu Murray on Appealing Only to the Mind

"Christian apologists (me included) struggle with the temptation to focus too heavily on answers that appeal only to the mind. We can completely denude the gospel of its existential power and profundity by trying to outsmart challengers to the faith or just win debates. The late Francis Schaeffer was intensely focused on using the right balance of argumentation and grace. "You are not trying to win an argument or to knock someone down," he said. "You are seeking to win a person, a person made in the image of God.  This is not about your winning; it is not about your ego. If that is your approach, all you will do is arouse their pride and make it more difficult for them to hear what you have to say."

3 How to Avoid Making the Worship Leader the Performer - Stand to Reason Blog

Sing songs people know (or can learn easily). Sing them in congregational keys. Sing and celebrate the power, glory, and salvation of God. Serve your congregation. Saturate them with the word of God. Get your face off the big screen ( here’s why ). Use your original songs in extreme moderation ( here’s why ). Err on the side of including as many people as possible in what’s going on. Keep the lights up. Stop talking so much. Don’t let loops/lights/visuals become your outlet for creativity at the expense of the centrality of the gospel. Point to Jesus. Don’t draw attention to yourself. Don’t sing songs with bad lyrics or weak theology. Tailor your worship leading, and the songs you pick, to include the largest cross-section of your congregation that you can. Lead pastorally.

Bridging America’s civilian-military divide

Since leaving the Army and returning home to Illinois in 2009, I have discovered that revealing that I have served in uniform is usually a conversation stopper. Generally, a very awkward silence follows the inevitable response of "Thanks for your service." My sense is that the silence flows from a mix of good intention - a desire to not say the wrong thing - and of a perceived lack of knowledge of how to engage.

Weekend Apologetics Hit and Misc: Churches Should Focus More on Apologetics - The Poached Egg Christian Worldview and Apologetics Network

For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.

'Empathetically Correct' Is the New Politically Correct

In a column titled “ The Limits of Empathy ,” David Brooks writes about a 2011 study on empathy. “The problem,” Brooks reports, “comes when we try to turn feeling into action. Empathy makes you more aware of other people’s suffering, but it’s not clear it actually motivates you to take moral action or prevents you from taking immoral action.” Citing as examples prison guards in Nazi concentration camps who wept while murdering their prisoners and experimental subjects who registered emotional distress when ordered to administer electric shocks to fellow subjects, Brooks explains, “Empathy orients you toward moral action, but it doesn’t seem to help much when that action comes at a personal cost.” More than empathy, Brooks argues, what advances social good is encouraging and empowering people to “debate, understand, reform, revere, and enact” a moral code and a sense of duty. Not coincidentally, such has been the traditional purpose of higher education.

Grace to You

Within God’s will of purpose is His will of desire. This will is more specific but not always fulfilled in the present age. For example, Jesus desired His people, the Jews, to be saved. However, only a relative few believed in His message. Jesus prayed, “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the city that kills the prophets and stones those sent to her! How often I wanted to gather your children together … and you would not have it!” (Luke 13:34). Like the Jews, most Gentiles are also unwilling to come to Christ for salvation (John 5:40; cf. 1 Tim. 2:4; 2 Peter 3:9).

10 Foreign Films Worth Watching

And while Russell Crowe and Liam Hemsworth are hobnobbing with J-Law on Ralph Lauren’s yacht all week, the rest of us [mere mortals] are stuck at home awaiting the release of this year’s best films from around the world. While we wait, we thought we’d turn our attention to some of the best foreign language films of recent years.

God's Not Dead: God's Not Dead: There's Proof Everywhere

Moral arguments for God's existence may be defined as that family of arguments in the history of western philosophical theology having claims about the character of moral thought and experience in their premises and affirmations of the existence of God in their conclusions. Some of these arguments are on all fours with other theistic arguments, such as the design argument. They cite facts that are claimed to be evident to human experience. And they argue that such facts entail or are best explained by the hypothesis that there is a God... Other moral proofs of God's existence take us away from the patterns of argument typical of natural theology. They deal in our ends and motives. These variants on the moral argument for God's existence describe some end that the moral life commits us to (such as the attainment of the perfect good) and contend that this end cannot be attained unless God as traditionally defined exists (

Killing Jesus Christ: New Book: The Unjust Arrest and Illegal Trials of Jesus Christ

After Christ’s arrest there were endless interrogations, Jewish trials, and Roman trials. The documentation for Christ’s trial begins with the New Testament. No thoughtful person has legitimately questioned the actuality of the trial of Jesus, or that sentences of guilt were declared by Israel and Rome. Moreover, His enemies haughtily admit that the Romans executed Christ. The accepted Gospels as well as the Talmud often refer to the trial and the crucifixion. The ambiguities are of minutiae, not material, apropos the facts of the trials. In details, the synoptic Gospels agree extraordinarily well with one another and form a consistent portrayal regarding the trial of Christ. In the vehemence of its conviction, modern Orthodox Judaism agrees with the rabbinical application of justice that was applied to Christ by the hands of the Romans. Orthodox Judaism’s revulsion of Jesus Christ is so severe that by Mishnahic strictures, some contemporary Jewish fundamentalists would send Christ to Pilate a second time, should they be given the opportunity.

How Human Was Jesus?

Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but made himself nothing, taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

22 Common Descent or Common Design? - The Poached Egg Christian Worldview and Apologetics Network

Sure, humans and fish both share backbones and nerve codes. That’s no surprise to anyone. In fact, humans also share genes with bananas and bacteria. That organisms share genes or structural parts does not necessarily reflect common ancestry, because it could indicate that they were built upon a common body plan. After all, it’s a good design principle to re-use parts that work in different designs—this is exactly why mechanical engineers put wheels on both cars and airplanes, or why technology designers put keyboards on both computers and cell phones. That different organisms share some of the same parts could easily reflect common design rather than common descent.

Ambling for president

“I am ambling — running suggests unseemly ardor — for president. It is axiomatic that anyone who nowadays will do what is necessary in order to become president thereby reveals character traits, including delusions of adequacy and obsessive compulsive disorder, that should disqualify him or her from proximity to powers concentrated in the executive branch. Therefore, my campaign will initially consist of driving around the Obnoxiously Entitled Four — Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina and Nevada — trying to interest their 3.8 percent of America’s population in a minimalist president.

How “tightness” vs “looseness” explains the U.S. political map

By and large, however, the tight/loose rankings mirror the political map. The South is solidly Republican and tight. Swing states like Virginia, Ohio, Wisconsin and Iowa are in the middle of the tightness/looseness rankings. And strongly Democratic areas like New England and the QWest Coast are also among the loosest in the country. Of the ten tightest states, President Obama averaged just 40.3 percent of the vote in 2012. In the 10 loosest states, he got an average of 58.8 percent.

Practical Apologetics #2: What To Do When You Get An Objection You Can't Answer - The Poached Egg Christian Worldview and Apologetics Network

Remember that the absolute worst thing you can do when you get hit with a question or objection that you don't know how to answer is to answer it anyway. There are few quicker ways to look like a fool than to just keep talking about something you know nothing about. Now this is not to say that you can't ask for more information about the point they just made to understand it better, and it is not to say that you can't interact with it to the extent you feel like you have some understanding of the issue, but if you really don't have a clue....be silent. Remember Proverbs 17:28 "Even a fool who keeps silent is considered wise; when he closes his lips, he is deemed intelligent." It will go better for you to be quiet for now, go find the answers you need and then come back with something worthy to say…

27 Questioning the abortion worldview - The Poached Egg Christian Worldview and Apologetics Network

Abortion is not a comfortable subject for either the religious or nonreligious among us and two respected people, looking at identical information, often reach opposite opinions on the matter.  But with the debate over abortion rights again getting national attention after the trial and conviction of Dr. Kermit Gosnell for the killing of three babies who had already been born in his clinic, it is worth asking: Why is it that some people of faith are in favor of abortion rights, while other people of faith are against them? Similarly, why can two scientists who both agree about the same genetic information concerning a fetus come to two completely different conclusions regarding the ethics of abortion?

Racists Can’t Own An NBA Team But They Can Go To Heaven: An African-American Christian’s Perspective of Racism in the NBA

The problem with racists and with Mr. Sterling’s comments is not fundamentally that they are racist. But the fundamental problem with racists and with Mr. Sterling’s comments is that racists and racist comments reveal the spiritual deadness of humanity’s spiritual heart and the need for God through Christ and by his Spirit to resurrect one’s spiritual heart from the dead (Eph 2:1-10). The solution to Mr. Sterling’s racism is not banishment from the NBA, which will neither change the way he feels toward African-Americans nor the fact that he’s a racist. But the solution to his racism is the gospel of Jesus Christ. If he trusts in and follows by faith Jesus Christ, who died on the cross and resurrected from the dead for all types of sins and for all types, races, and kinds of sinners, then Mr. Sterling can be liberated from racism. If Mr. Sterling chooses to become a Christian, the Christian gospel promises that he will go to heaven, a place filled with many sinful Christ-followers—even liberated racist Christ-followers. The NBA has decided that a certain kind of sinner (a racist) can’t own an NBA team, but this African-American Christian believes that racists can go to heaven by faith in Jesus Christ.

29 Has Secularization Made Us Smarter? - The Poached Egg Christian Worldview and Apologetics Network

Here is a common myth:  Intelligence has evolved over the centuries of recorded history, so we’re smarter than people were a thousand years ago. Just look at the remarkable advances in the sciences and especially technology, and it’s clear that our current generation is more intelligent than those of the past, right?  I hear it all the time, sometimes explicitly and sometimes not, but hardly a day passes that I don’t detect it in the background of people’s presuppositions. Think of the frequency of comparisons with the past that run along these lines – “Well once upon a time people used to think that (insert any number of prevailing views from bygone eras), but now we know better.” And much of the time the thing “people used to think” isn’t even accurate. I continue to hear, for example, about how all of the Europeans thought the world was flat right up until Columbus’ voyage.

Jurors Are Asked to Do More Than Hear the Case; They're Asked to Make a Decision - The Poached Egg Christian Worldview and Apologetics Network

I’ve never been fond of the term, “ Christian Apologist ”. For several years now, I’ve tried to find a clearer expression. I typically refer to myself as a “Christian Case Maker” when trying to explain my work in Cold-Case Christianity and my role as a at Stand to Reason . I think this title better captures the nature of my desire as a Christian communicator. Most people understand what case makers are all about; everyone’s served on a jury, heard about important criminal cases in the news, seen a movie or read a book that describes the process.  I like the term because it paints a picture that people can easily visualize. I also like the term because it reminds me of the nature of my mission.

1234567891011121314 The Solid Declaration of the Formula of Concord << PreviousNext >> IV. Good Works 1] A disagreement has also occurred among the theologians of the Augsburg Confession concerning good works, one part employing the following words and manner in speaking of them: Good works are necessary for salvation; it is impossible to be saved without good works ; likewise, no one has been saved without good works ; because, they say, good works are required of true believers as fruits of faith, and faith without love is dead, although such love is no cause of salvation. 2] The other part, however, contended, on the contrary, that good works are indeed necessary; however, not for salvation, but for other reasons; and that on this account the aforecited propositiones , or expressions, which have been used (as they are not in accord with the form of sound doctrine and with the Word, and have been always and are still set by the Papists in opposition to the doctrine of our Christian faith, in which we confess that faith alone justifies and saves ) are not to be tolerated in the Church, in order that the merit of Christ, our Savior, be not diminished, and the promise of salvation may be and remain firm and certain to believers.

32 10 Things You Need to Know About the Bible and Slavery - The Poached Egg Christian Worldview and Apologetics Network

“The ideal type of the slave is the socially dead chattel, ripped forcibly from organic ties of kin and community, transported to an alien environment there to be treated as merely a piece of property or as a factor of production to be used and abused at will, an animate tool or beast of burden with no sense of self other than that allowed by the slave owner and no legal, let alone civic, personality whatsoever. Societies with large numbers of such slaves, let alone societies based on them, have been very few. The City of Athens and central Roman Italy for periods in antiquity, and in modern times the slave states of the American Old South, the Caribbean, and Brazil, are the only known instances.” Oxford Companion to Classical Civilization (OUP:1998) p670

33 No God-of-the-Gaps Allowed: Francis Collins and Theistic Evolution - The Poached Egg Christian Worldview and Apologetics Network

Geneticist Francis Collins, director of the Human Genome Project, is one of the world’s best‐known scientists. An outspoken Christian, he recently challenged equally outspoken Oxford zoologist and atheist Richard Dawkins in the pages of Time magazine. Collins’s book The Language of God: A Scientist Presents Evidence for Belief is equal parts autobiography, scientific reflection, theological speculation, and musings on bioethics. This review focuses on his beliefs about the philosophy of science and about evolutionary theory, as most of his main argument springs—albeit inconsistently, I will argue—from those beliefs. Collins chides “creationists” and intelligent design (ID) theorists for using what he calls“God‐of‐the‐gaps” reasoning, which he says the relentless forward sweep of scientific understanding has doomed to failure, yet his own “evidence for belief” is, arguably, an instance of God‐of‐the‐gaps reasoning.

34 Question Everything? - The Poached Egg Christian Worldview and Apologetics Network

There's a fine line, though, between being someone who questions and being someone who refuses to believe any answers-a true skeptic. In fact, I don't think many skeptics actually question anything. They may phrase their challenges as questions, but their heart is set on rejection and disproving, not asking. To truly question something is to query it and to ask about it for the sake of greater and deeper understanding. This may lead to evidence that disproves or to propositions worthy of rejecting, but the heart behind it is to learn, to know. And in this sense, we ought to question everything. And I do mean everything…

35 The Genetics of Adam and Eve, The Difficulty with Genesis 1:27-28 - The Poached Egg Christian Worldview and Apologetics Network

Explanation: Over the past couple of decades researchers have used “population genetics” to estimate initial population size of the human species. By studying human genetic diversity in the present day, they have tried to extrapolate back to determine the minimum size of the original population of humans necessary to produce the diversity we observe today. Some have argued that it is impossible for civilization to have come from one human couple.

36 Persecution myth? - The Poached Egg Christian Worldview and Apologetics Network

This thesis, as most modern-day academic theses concerning early history, is fundamentally based on conjecture, projections, and above all, anachronisms—the sort that earlier turned Christ into a homosexual hippie and Muhammad into a humanitarian feminist. Neither Moss nor anyone else can prove or disprove what the primary historical texts say—that Roman persecution of Christians was real, widespread, and brutal.

Piper’s Newest and Most Different Book Ever

For example, in 1 Corinthians 1:25, he says, “The foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men.” He cannot be unconscious that it is shocking to say that the gospel is “the foolishness of God” and “the weakness of God.” This risks blasphemy. But no! He chose a shocking way to say it. He used irony. He made an effort to select words that would make an impact and force people to wake up and think. That is what I mean by “poetic effort.” And Paul does it while condemning a kind of poetic effort.

40 Purpose In Life: Nothing But Illusion? - The Poached Egg Christian Worldview and Apologetics Network

There’s a running Internet debate between theists and atheists over the question of purpose. Atheists typically insist they can find purpose without God; theists typically answer that this is something less than real purpose, because it’s so ephemeral and temporary. I see a deeper problem with purpose than that, however, if naturalism is true.

41 Must We See to Believe? - The Poached Egg Christian Worldview and Apologetics Network

There have always been people like Thomas who demand that they directly experience something before they believe it exists.  During the Enlightenment in Europe, the philosophical theory of empiricism came to embody this principle for the modern world.

42 Q and A with Dr. Craig: Does Knowledge Require Certainty? - The Poached Egg Christian Worldview and Apologetics Network

I have been studying the defense of the Christian faith for the better part of six months now. I acknowledge the fact that six months is not a vast amount of time; however there has been one idea that I have not been able to surmount or give a dispute when brought up in conversation or debate. Many people, some Christians included, plead intellectual ignorance as it applies to knowing anything about life, the universe, or logic. They state that since every possible option has not been explored that nothing can be said for certain. Since nothing can be said for certain, all of the premises that you pose may seem true to us, but we cannot say they are absolutely true. If they cannot be proven absolutely true, then there is no reason to believe them, and the argument dies right there.

43 Bad Science Is Like Bad Religion - The Poached Egg Christian Worldview and Apologetics Network

I have been a scientist for more than 40 years, having studied at Cambridge and Harvard. I researched and taught at Cambridge University, was a research fellow of the Royal Society, and have more than 80 publications in peer-reviewed journals. I am strongly pro-science. But I am more and more convinced that that the spirit of free inquiry is being repressed within the scientific community by fear-based conformity. Institutional science is being crippled by dogmas and taboos. Increasingly expensive research is yielding diminishing returns.

44 On "You Can't Prove A Negative" - The Poached Egg Christian Worldview and Apologetics Network

First, the negative is proven, or attempts are made to prove the negative thousands, if not millions of times every day. In courts around the world lawyers defend clients who have been accused of a crime. The defense lawyer either attempts to prove that their client is not the person who committed the crime, or attempts to prove that a crime was not committed, the alleged crime does not exist–proving the negative.

45 Some &quot;Thoughts on Mind &amp; Cosmos&quot; by Thomas Nagel - The Poached Egg Christian Worldview and Apologetics Network

So what has caused all the fuss? Nagel claims in Mind and Cosmos that the dominant naturalistic worldview, which holds that a blind process of natural selection is responsible for our existence, is fundamentally flawed. It should also be noted that he mentions his doubts on the likelihood the ability of purely physical laws to explain the origin of self-reproducing life forms, and the likelihood of natural selection producing the life forms we see today in the available geological time. (2) However, the first sticking point for Nagel comes in his area of specialty – philosophy of mind. Essentially, he holds that the project to reduce the mind to physical properties has failed because of the intractable problem of explaining consciousness.

46 The Difference Between Original Autographs and Original Texts - The Poached Egg Christian Worldview and Apologetics Network

If you're looking for a way to critique the authority of Scripture, there are seemingly endless options. There are historical critiques (e.g., many of these books are forgeries). There are logical critiques (e.g., the Gospels contradict themselves). There are moral critiques (e.g., God is immoral to order the slaughter of entire cities). And there are hermeneutical critiques (e.g., no one can agree on what the Bible means).

49 Pay No Attention to That Data Behind the Curtain! - The Poached Egg Christian Worldview and Apologetics Network

Within the Christian community, there tends to be a certain degree of polarization when it comes to questions of origins–the origin of the universe, the origin of life, the origin of species, and the origin of mankind.  There are some who believe that the scientific community cannot be trusted on matters of origins, that human scientists cannot draw reasonable conclusions from the relevant data alone, and that the Darwinian agenda taints the situation so severely that we should dismiss all of it wholesale and rely on a plain reading of Genesis for our information about origins.  At the other end of the spectrum, there are Christians who have embraced most all of the conclusions of the [currently] reigning Darwinian paradigm, and criticize dissenters as being either A) anti-science or B) narrow-minded about orthodox boundaries for Scripture interpretation.

When Are You Actually an Adult?

This is the beauty of adulthood found in our loving and growing relationship with ourselves. It’s a loving and growing relationship with our God who encourages us to “run with perseverance the race marked out for us.” We do not want to dawdle at the starting line when God has called us to so much more. This race begins in our daily decisions to throw off our childish ways and pursue the full, free life of maturity in Him. We lean into the growth He calls us to in our everyday actions, knowing that these choices are growing us into a more full and free version of ourselves.
