Thinking Christians: 14 Apologetics Quotes

While we are often willing to spend time reading the Bible, praying, or participating in church programs and services, few of us recognize the importance of becoming good Christian case makers. Prosecutors are successful when they master the facts of the case and then learn how to navigate and respond to the tactics of the defense team. Christians need to learn from that model as well. We need to master the facts and evidences that support the claims of Christianity and anticipate the tactics of those who oppose us. This kind of preparation is a form of worship. When we devote ourselves to this rational preparation and study, we are worshipping God with our mind, the very thing He has called us to do (Matt. 22:37).

Discussing Mere Christianity Small Group Bible Study - Session One

The DVD and Study Guide are available: - Amazon - Barnes & Noble - Discover the classic message on what all Christians believe In this 8-session video group study, you will discover why Mere Christianity by C. S. Lewis is one of the most read and beloved Christian books of all time. But over seventy years after it was first delivered as a series of radio messages, what relevance does it have to our world today? Host Eric Metaxas and a variety of Christian leaders−including Philip Yancey, Alister McGrath, Devin Brown, Paul McCusker, Douglas Gresham, and others−help us understand the timeless message of C. S. Lewis in fresh ways for a new generation. Metaxas and other speakers will help you explore the positive ideas that C. S. Lewis has so eloquently written about in Mere Christianity for those who already call themselves Christian. This video study also explains in an engaging, winsome, and nonthreatening way the basic tenets of the Christian faith as illustrated by C. S. Lewis to those who do not claim to be Christian.

Os Guinness Says "We Are All Apologists Now" | Come Reason's Apologetics Notes

We are all apologists now, and we stand at the dawn of the grand age of human apologetics, or so some are saying because our wired world and our global era are a time when expressing, presenting, sharing, defending and selling ourselves have become a staple of everyday life for countless millions of people around the world, both Christians and others. The age of the Internet, it is said, is the age of the self and the selfie. The world is full of people full of themselves. In such an age, "I post, therefore I am." To put the point more plainly, human interconnectedness in the global era has been raised to a truly global level, with unprecedented speed and on an unprecedented scale. Everyone is now everywhere, and everyone can communicate with everyone else from anywhere and at any time, instantly and cheaply. Communication through the social media in the age of email, text messages, cell phones, tweets and Skype is no longer from "the few to the many" as in the age of the book, the newspaper and television, but from "the many to the many" and all the time.

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.

The Christians Who Annoy Us Are the Christians We Need Most

To this end, Hansen proposes that Christians learn from believers who make them uncomfortable, because the ones who annoy us are likely the ones we need most. Instead of trying to be well-rounded, we should settle for being well-surrounded. If we can’t embody all the strengths of every Christian tribe, we can at least associate with brothers and sisters who have what we lack (and lack what we have).

How to Get the Job You Want

I honestly think most big company jobs are a waste of time. I did it because I needed the money and it was a huge brand in the e-commerce business. But, it was pure drugery with zero contact potential with the people who could make promotion decisions so I left utterly depressed to start my own business and transition to a new career. Work that mellenials like myself can get out of college is far more perilous that starting your own business. I'm still depressed, cynical, but also realistic. Not happy but definitely better off than I was at Ultimately, the only work that matters is the work you do for yourself. Way too many of my fellow graduates are stressing to an early grave at 60 hours a week making somebody else rich. You have a choice, choose freedom and opportunity over perceived security. Haven't we given up enough in the pursuit of perceived security over the last 15 years? God values you. Now value yourself and trust in His provision.

All God’s Children: The Spiritual Cost of Opportunity Inequality

It’s a question that matters as we look at generational change: Is it likely that a child born in poverty in the US can work toward a better life, or will he become caught in a cycle of instability and brokenness? Putnam begins in the small Ohio city of Port Clinton, where he grew up in the 1950s. He remembers it as a place where rich and poor existed side-by-side, in the same schools, neighborhoods, and churches. Even his poorest peers had plenty of opportunities, with many going on to college and successful careers. Port Clinton looks different today, highly segregated along class lines. This divide, Putnam says, represents the key factor keeping the town’s poorest children from rising above their surroundings.

One of these cases is not like the other.

Two and a half years later, the same social science journal that published the original study publishes a “re-analysis” of the very same data set (that’s right, no new data collection, just reinterpretation of the admittedly valid stuff). The original study’s creator does one of the peer reviews of the re-analysis and generously green-lights its publication. The new article’s authors claim the original scholar committed “classification errors” because some of the same-sex relationships were very brief, even evanescent affairs, and so what he should have done is what they proceed to do: toss out data until they get a handful of same-sex households where a couple stayed together at least several years. Many of the bad outcomes are washed out in this data-laundering exercise. But, as the original author notes , this is controlling for the pathways, striving to depict as normal something that is almost nonexistent in any meaningful statistical sense: stable, faithful, long-term same-sex couples heading households with children in them and rearing them from early childhood to adulthood.

17 dangerous idea: The laws of logic and the laws of physics

I responded to Vic's Argument from Reason and shown it proves nothing: Victor Reppert never imagines that anything "new" can arise in a cosmos built of matter and energy. He still thinks in terms of the cosmos being nothing but isolated billiard balls. But the human brain-mind system functions by taking in data in mega-dozes, whole scenes of nature, via the senses, and reacts to these mega-sized doses of reality which constitute more than just reacting to individual atoms. Neither did brain-minds develop overnight. There's amoeba with no neurons, worms with a few neurons, all the way up to the great apes and a few other large-brained mammalian species like dolphins and elephants. As for logic, it is idiomatic, either A equals B or it does not. Animals sense differences in nature and their surroundings. Whether it is raining or not, and react to their brain-mind sensation of rain, not to individual atoms. Even a single cell species like amoeba can detect and trap prey, without a brain-mind.

How to Tell When Wanderlust Turns Unhealthy

As someone who's done their fair share of traveling, I have to say I agree with the majority of this article. There is a strange amount of pressure to do something new and reinvent yourself every couple of years. It was only recently, that I started being criticized for living abroad in so many different places. I was truly taken by surprise that my being in missions had offended anyone or was seen as some sort of defect. For me, I know I was called to go to those places and I wouldn't trade the experiences for anything. As you pointed out, it's all about your reasons for going. I've met many people that absolutely should immediately settle into a career or life in America, but I've also met quite a few who choose to do so out of fear. I've met very few people who've chosen a missionary life (which is, granted, different from traveling for the heck of it) who were doing so entirely for their own glory. Honestly, I believe the world is changing. We are less of a missionary sending nation than we once were. That doesn't mean none are called. It does take great faith to battle it out on the home front just as it takes great faith to serve abroad.

As for other relevant resources, the list could be endless. Let me here list a few, some recent, some older. These will not be limited to discussions of the legal issues and their ramifications. For many Christians, I think that the culture’s pressures are such that they either have been bullied into silence by the rhetoric, emotionally swayed into silence by the very sad or moving stories, or have been persuaded by the clichés and slogans or songs or constant refrains about who the culture is moving and you don’t want to be “on the wrong side of history” and such. Whatever the case, I think the church needs to be prepared to understand and engage the larger issues, to show love and stand firm, without compromising our convictions. To that end, here are some volumes for your consideration.

Jesus Poured Out His Joy for You

We know that, following his resurrection, Jesus ascends to heaven, where he is seated at the right hand of God, where he will reign until all of his enemies are subdued beneath his feet. The Word became flesh and dwelt among us (John 1:14), and then the Word-made-flesh returned to heaven to dwell with God, now as the glorified God-man. In other words, in the ascension, the Son of God returns to the presence and right hand of God the Father — the same presence where there is fullness of joy, and the same right hand that contains eternal pleasures.

Natasha Crain: how Christian parents can teach their kids about atheism

I think the bigger point about this post is that parents ought to have a plan for raising Christian kids. So many kids who are raised in the church by “Christian” parents fall away as soon as they hit the university, but there is almost no concern about the university in most churches. Why is that? And can you really outsource the teaching of your kids to pastors who don’t prepare them for college? There is a definition of faith in conservative churches that is not Biblical. It seeks to make faith about emotions and spirituality. Confirming what the Bible says using logical arguments and evidence is frowned upon, even if the parents are smart enough to learn apologetics given their success in other areas (like their careers). In church, it’s seen as “more pious” to just believe what the Bible says without evidence, and try to make Christianity about love instead of truth. That’s what churches teach, but it’s not in the Bible. The Bible is all about presenting evidence to non-believers.

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.

Mad Max: Fury Road

Unlike the Eden of Genesis, a temple-like oasis ultimately meant to bring order, flourishing, and blessing beyond its borders through the stewardship of Adam, the Citadel is a closed imperial fortress where water and greenery are kept out of reach (literally high on cliffs) from the starving, parched masses. “I am your redeemer,” says Joe from his perch on high, perpetuating a cult religion that depends on keeping the throngs just happy enough. Water is ceremoniously released to them in small batches, with Joe saying things like, “Do not become addicted to water . . . you will resent its absence.”

Defining Atheism: Belief in No God or No Belief in God

Were someone to translate ancient and classical uses of atheos into “no belief in God” they would do an injustice to the text since that is simply not how Greeks and Romans were normally using the term when they first coined it, nor when they continued using it over the years. Etymology (study of word origins, and composite meaning from word parts) is only one way that words take on meaning.When we apply etymology to the English word “atheism,” we have “athe” (from atheos “no God/Godless”) + “-ism” (belief). Belief then characterizes the “no God” hence we have, “Belief in no God.” And the alpha privative, as always, characterizes the word to which its affixed. So the belief is positive, the object of belief in negative. It is “belief in no God” or “belief in Godless[ness].” For etymology to achieve the negative definition of atheism, a popular definition today, from the term would have to be something like, “theos-a-ism” or, “No belief [in a] God.” The etymology argument then is not a friend but a foe of the negative definition of atheism.

Acts 17: JurassicGate: Chris Pratt Blasts Political Correctness

Our society claims to promote tolerance. Yet what we mean by "tolerance" nowadays seems to be "throwing a tantrum over anything that could conceivably offend anyone, until people pretend they agree on everything." Tolerance presupposes disagreement. If I agree with your views, I don't need to tolerate them. Tolerance only comes into play when you believe something, I believe something quite different, and we want to make sure we don't start killing each other over our differences. Yet any departure from the status quo, no matter how trivial, is now perceived as a cringeworthy offense, and is met with howling intolerance by the mindless stormtroopers of political correctness. Chris Pratt draws attention to this unfortunate cultural degeneration in a recent tweet, where he apologizes for the inevitable offense he will cause in the Jurassic World press tour. Here's the tweet:

Former atheist astrophysicist, Sarah Salviander, explains her journey to Christianity.

Canada was already post-Christian by the 1970s, so I grew up with no religion. In retrospect, it’s amazing that for the first 25 years of my life, I met only three people who identified as Christian. My view of Christianity was negative from an early age, and by the time I was in my twenties I was actively hostile toward Christianity. Looking back, I realized a lot of this was the unconscious absorption of the general hostility toward Christianity that is common in places like Canada and Europe; my hostility certainly wasn’t based on actually knowing anything about Christianity. I had come to believe that Christianity made people weak and foolish; I thought it was philosophically trivial. I was ignorant not only of the Bible, but also of the deep philosophy of Christianity and the scientific discoveries that shed new light on the origins of the universe and life on Earth.

Muhammad Compares Aisha to a Good Meal Muhammad (the prophet of Islam) had at least nine wives at one time. His favorite wife, however, was Aisha. While describing his fondness for Aisha, Muhammad declared that Aisha was better than other women in the way al-tharid (his favorite meal) was better than other meals. Here are the sources quoted in this video: Sahih al-Bukhari 5158—The Prophet wrote the (marriage contract) with Aisha while she was six years old and consummated his marriage with her while she was nine years old and she remained with him for nine years (i.e. till his death). Sahih Muslim 3480—It was narrated that Aishah said: “The Prophet married me when I was six years old, and consummated the marriage with me when I was nine years old.” Sahih Muslim 3481—It was narrated from Aishah that the Prophet married her when she was seven years old and she was taken to him as a bride when she was nine years old, and she took her dolls with her. He died when she was eighteen years old. Sahih al-Bukhari 5068—The Prophet used to go round (have sexual relations with) all his wives in one night, and he had nine wives.

Five Benefits of Corporate Worship

Often we come into corporate worship feeling a sense of spiritual fog. During the rough and tumble of the week, the hard knocks of real life in the fallen world can disorient us to ultimate reality and what’s truly important. We need to clear our head, recalibrate our spirit, and jumpstart our slow heart. Martin Luther found corporate worship powerful in awakening his spiritual fire: “at home, in my own house, there is no warmth or vigor in me, but in the church when the multitude is gathered together, a fire is kindled in my heart and it breaks its way through.”
