MIT’s Robo-Cheetah Now Hurdles Obstacles. Sweet Dreams.

Just imagine a time in the not too distant future, when MIT’s DARPA-funded robot combat cheetah has become self-aware and decides to turn on its human creators (we say this is maybe like a year and a half away, tops). You’re being chased by the mechanical beast, and you think to yourself, “I know how I’ll evade the robot jungle cat! I will throw this 15-inch obstacle into its path! There’s no way it can somehow leap over it with its clunky machine body.” Well, think again! MIT has released this video showing the cheetah using laser sensors to see coming obstacles that it can easily hurdle over ...

What Can We Do to Help Young People Remain in the Faith? (Cold-Case Christianity Broadcast #32) | Cold Case Christianity

In this episode of the Cold-Case Christianity Podcast, J. Warner Wallace provides four simple principles parents can employ to help their kids defend what they believe as Christians. Given the high rate of attrition for young Christians, is there anything the Church (and parents in particular) can do to address the challenge? (For more information, visit www.ColdCaseChristianity.com ). Here is part 1 of this week’s broadcast:

Louis C.K. is not a good person | Think Christian

Good article. I like Louis C.K, but I can only take so much of him at a time because he typically either goes much farther than I'm willing to endure (see the SNL monologue), or he just depresses me with his realism, or what you call his tragic humanism. I was on a trans-Pacific flight recently and watched one of his standup specials. I enjoyed it, but tried to watch a second and found that he exhausted me with his cynical point of view. But I do appreciate your perspective on his comedy, and your attempt to watch LCK Christianly. Cheers, Nate

Can We Be Angry at Prodigals?

What did the father feel before he saw the son coming home? Can we imagine him frustrated and angry? Are we to suppose during the months, or even years, the prodigal is away the father is only and solely feeling a mild, welcoming compassion? Is there no place for a holy frustration at destructive choices he sees his beloved child making? Is there no place for hurt, for grief at the pain of rejection in the midst of his unrelenting love and mercy? Are these feelings allowed for gracious Christians?

How to Glimpse the Trinity

Well, I’ve contracted the condition. But I caught it from the New Testament, which employs the concept of mutual indwelling rather stretchily. Though the term is never used in Scripture, the concept appears more frequently that we often realize, particularly in the Gospel of John. When Jesus talks about mutual indwelling, he stresses the similarities—rather than the dissimilarities—between the relationship of the Father and the Son, the church’s relationship with him and the Father, and Christians’ relations with one another. All this helps us to understand not only the God we worship, but also who we are and what we experience on a day-to-day basis.

Study: Millennials May Be the Least Religious Generation in American History

They found that compared to four decades ago, the number of high school seniors and college students who don’t go to church or religious services has doubled. The cause for the dramatic shifts?

As Americans become more individualistic, it makes sense that fewer would commit to religion” ...

You Only Live Once?

The popular acronym YOLO (you only live once) has captured the hearts of many an emerging hedonist (and not the Christian kind). It wrests the minds of thousands with the tyranny of the urgent, motivating a kind of desperate restlessness to squeeze the last drop of pleasure out of these quickly fading days. YOLO is imprisoning a generation with a familiar lie exposed by the apostle Paul in 1 Corinthians 15:32: “Let us eat and drink, for tomorrow we die.”

What $5 Per Day Will Buy You on Facebook Ads

Interesting, your CPC is high for sure. You’re operating in a competitive market, but the click price still seems inflated. The big thing for me with FB ads is paying for reach just never sits right with me – if you reach an extra 4000 people, so what? If no action is taken – a click for example, then what are you gaining from it? You want people to read your blog, the fact that the post that mentions the blog reached extra people isn’t that valuable for you. Sure, they may think of your blog next time but you can’t measure that. I always advise people to pay for actions.

Are gays ‘born that way’? Most Americans now say yes, but science says no

They created a sophisticated propaganda campaign. They shipped thousands of activists into key voting areas to canvass door to door. In order to soften the average people toward homosexuality and create an animus against traditional religious values, they resurrected many of the “big lie” techniques used by the 20th century totalitarian movements. For example, people were told over and over that not allowing “gay marriage” was bad for the economy and that only backward, ignorant, and superstitious people still were against it. Homosexuality was said to be the next phase of the Civil Rights movement. A key talking point was that by supporting “gay marriage” you are “on the right side of history” – a Marxist concept (later used by the Third Reich).

In Search of an Honest Atheist

This inescapable “knowledge” of God, however, is not redemptive. That is to say, we must differentiate between awareness of God’s existence and enjoyment of it. It is one thing to acknowledge that God exists. It is another to repent and seek him and cast oneself in humble dependence upon his grace and receive by faith his gift of life in Christ Jesus. To use the words of Paul, “although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him” but “became futile in their thinking” and “exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and creeping things” (Rom. 1:21-22). They cannot escape “the truth about God,” so they exchange it “for a lie” and worship and serve “the creature rather than the Creator” (Rom. 1:25).

3 Better Ways to Help the Poor

To witness what you’ve thought of as poverty your whole life is astounding. You will see things you can hardly understand. For example, you will see families of eight living in huts that seem too small for one. You will witness colleagues and friends getting malaria regularly but regarding the disease as similar to that of the common cold. You will wonder how people can find any reason to enjoy life, but you will notice how much they revel at being together, sharing meals, celebrating, singing and dancing, encouraging one another, working and creating solutions to problems, and praising God in the midst of incredible suffering.

My Father Killed My Mother

I tell you my story not so you will say, “Be more like Joel, because he was obedient when God told him to go visit his dad.” I tell you my story not so you will say, “How heart-warming that Joel and his dad reunited.” I tell you my story so that I can also tell you that even amid the brokenness and tragedy of our lives, and our imperfect obedience in response to them, we are nevertheless “more than conquerors” through Christ. His death and resurrection are real and operative not only in the moments of shining redemption, but also in the ugly, painful moments during which we “groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for adoption as sons” (Rom. 8:23).

Why You Should Be Reading Chesterton

Around the summer of 1894, the idea of existence caught Chesterton’s imagination and began to bring him out of his “dark night.” He couldn't get over the fact that he merely existed. After all, “anything was magnificent as compared with nothing,” he wrote. “The mere fact that one could wave one’s arms and legs about … showed that is not the mere paralysis of a nightmare. Or if it was a nightmare, it was an enjoyable nightmare.”

Surprised by Suffering

In this classic book, republished in a revised and expanded edition, Dr. R. C. Sproul argues that we should not be surprised by suffering; instead, we should expect pain and sorrow in this life. Some are actually called to a “vocation” of suffering, and all of us are called to undergo the ultimate suffering of death. God promises in His Word that difficult times will come upon us, but He also promises that He allows suffering for our good and His glory, and He will never give us more than we can bear with His help.

10 Reasons Why Spiritual Disciplines Matter in Church Revitalization

But it is not enough for me to be connected to Christ and abide in him. I must also lead the leadership of the church in the development of their spiritual lives TOGETHER – as a leadership community. I’ve made that my second ministry priority after the pulpit. It is a slow go, but the culture is changing and the growth of the spiritual dynamic in our governance board is one of the most significant encouraging factors in a landscape of very hard ministry. I’ve used two books studies, in particular, to guide the board into a deeper understanding of spiritual leadership: “Spiritual Leadership” by Henry and Richard Blackaby (start there) and “Pursuing God’s Will Together” by Ruth Haley Barton – hands down, for me, the best book I’ve ever read on spiritual leadership of a ministry.

Unfortunately, sexual impropriety has become a not so silent epidemic among the Christian, conservative community.

How to Trust God When Your Dreams Aren’t Working Out

John, I feel that maybe we are reading a different article entirely? Most important, what does her age have to do with her dreams? When i was nine, my mother passed away, and I grew up in foster care. Having dreams (in combination with prayer) were what helped me to get through rough patches. You do not know what struggles this individual has been through, and she may have insight on the world that could benefit you! Additionally, at that age chances are you have less responsibilities to think of, which gives you more time to think about who you are becoming and what you want to do- we all think about these things. I am 28, I read the Bible and blogs and books and have bible studies, and in the midst of all this I dream about what my future is going to be like and try to plan as much of my life accordingly (keeping in mind that everything is in God's will, but he doesn't expect us to just starfish and wait for him to make a move). My parents are in their sixties and my mom is finally living her dream of getting the house she wanted. She told me that she prayed about it and believes God finally made this happen for her.

I wish I could have read this book as a young person—life would have been much richer both for others and for me.” Bruce K. Waltke , Professor Emeritus of Biblical Studies, Regent College

Reflections on the skeptic and atheist movements

Besides, I’ve been into SAM for a long time now. I still remember, back in 1997 — my second year as an Assistant Professor of Evolutionary Biology at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville — when a guy named Carl Ledendecker approached me after a talk by a creationist and asked me if I wanted to join the “Fellowship of Reason” (now the Rationalists of East Tennessee [4]), a group devoted to fighting the good fight on behalf of science and against irrationalisms of all stripes. I thought this was a weird idea, and besides I had to work on my tenure (and I had already started one of the first Darwin Days anyway [5]). Still, after a while I decided to give it a try. I’m still friends with Carl after all these years, and with a number of others I met first there and then throughout the country while attending local, national and international SAM meetings (including, incidentally, the two co-editors of Scientia Salon).

George RR Martin Isn’t the Only One Confused about the Trinity

God has given form and order to the history of salvation because he intends not only to save us through it but also to reveal himself through it. The economy is shaped by God's intention to communicate his identity and character. If the history of salvation is also the way God shows us who he is and what he is like, then it makes sense that it would be a history with a clear and distinct shape ... The center of the economy of salvation is the nexus where the Son and the Holy Spirit are sent by the Father to accomplish reconciliation.

William Lane Craig on Stephen Hawking film "The Theory Of Everything" -- Trailer

In the film The Theory of Everything, Stephen Hawking claims that cosmology is "a religion for intelligent atheists". The question haunts the film as it haunts Hawking's books. In his lecture "Cosmology: A Religion For Atheists?" Dr William Lane Craig examines this claim - critiquing both dialogue from the film, and Prof. Hawking's own publications. Does a beginning to the universe entail a creator? Does Hawking's latest "no boundary" Big Bang model disprove it? What hope is there, in a universe without God, according to the science of physical eschatology? And is philosophy "dead" as Stephen Hawking claims? Coming soon to YouTube. Dr William Lane Craig's Kalam Cosmological Argument is the most widely discussed argument for the existence of God in contemporary western philosophy. He is Research Professor of Philosophy at Talbot School of Theology and Houston Baptist University. He's published over 40 books and over 150 articles in peer-reviewed journals. He is most known online for his lectures and debates with leading atheists and skeptics.

Sexed-Up Culture Ruined Healthy Male-Female Work Relationships

As a researcher who focuses on female Christian leaders, I hear it over and over. The first female vice president of a Christian organization confessed she missed out on opportunities to advance her projects because the president made businesses decisions over lunch, and he promised his wife he wouldn’t eat lunch alone with women. It was enough to make her want to quit. A female pastor in Minnesota told me about being overlooked for staff development opportunities, while the lead pastor invested in her male coworkers. A female seminary professor shared the too-familiar struggle of trying to find a mentor among her all-male colleagues.

Loving Individuals Who are Hurting: Tips on Navigating Trauma and Grief

As someone trained to work with psychological trauma, I recognize that I hold an interest in a topic that makes many people feel uncomfortable. Words like death, refugee, torture, and suicide are not your typical lighthearted topics discussed at weekend social events. However, when at least 60% of adults have suffered a trauma, it is something we should discuss more often and more openly. As Christians, it is our duty and privilege to care for hurting people. Scripture describes a plethora of suffering people to whom we should extend help: the orphan, the widow, the weary, the sick, the poor, and the outcast. It is clear that Jesus has a heart for those suffering. So we come to this question: How do I help? There are many advantageous ways to help trauma survivors and grieving individuals. Volunteering, education, and advocacy are all great avenues for supporting these populations. However, I understand that many Christians serve the body of Christ in other capacities, leaving little time to volunteer with trauma on a larger scale. Therefore, I want to start smaller.

Friendship with Jesus and the Aim of Education in Serious Joy

Second, verse 14, “You are my friends if you do what I command you.” In other words, when I say that I lay down my life for my friends , you can know that my death counts for you, if it moves you to become obedient to me. Think carefully with me: He has just said, “I lay down my life for my friends.” Now he says, “You are my friends, if you do what I command.” That’s a big “if.” Eternity hangs in the balance. And I take it to mean: you can know you are my friend and my death counts for you, if my love for you and my death for you has changed you to love each other as I loved you. If you love each other as I loved you, you are showing the effect my death has had on you, and proving to be my friends.

Should Christians Confront Mormon Missionaries When They Knock on the Front Door?

Some Christians use this verse as a reason to not invite Mormons into their homes. But this stance ignores the passage’s context. In the early church, churches met in homes. When Christian teachers arrived in a community, they looked for the home in which the faithful met. The Lord instructed the disciples to do this. In today’s language, we would write, “Do not take them into your pulpit.” It is a warning to not let false teachers into authority where they could mislead the unwary.

8 Questions for Churches at a Life and Death Cultural Crossroads

It addresses the crossroads where theology meets psychology, where truth, mission, and fear intermingle. Change is hard.
