A Little Book on the Christian Life: A Live Interview with Burk Parsons Today at 2pm

Today at 2pm ET, we will be joined by Dr. Burk Parsons, copastor of Saint Andrew’s Chapel in Sanford, FL, editor of Tabletalk magazine, and Ligonier teaching fellow. Together, we will discuss the new book he coedited and cotranslated, A Little Book on the Christian Life by John Calvin, and how the truths Calvin distilled in this classic work can serve to encourage and equip a new generation of Christians.

Is Christianity Good for the World?

Protestant missionaries have changed the world, not only spiritually, but also culturally. Cultures that have Jesus also have greater wellbeing.

3 Reasons Why You Need Apologetics

Living in a secular age means living with our faith being contested. We are surrounded by people who believe and act differently from us. We must not take for granted the faith handed down by our parents. In fact, statistics show that those who merely have a faith that is passed down to them end up losing it if they never come to accept the faith’s claims for themselves. Here are three reasons apologetics is beneficial to Christians and non-Christians alike:

Beliefs Of Buddhists | Reasonable Faith

The beliefs of Buddhists stand in stark contrast to those of Christianity, especially concerning the need for a creator. A questioner from Sri Lanka writes in with several Buddhist arguments, including assertions that an infinite chain of events can result in our universe and the concept of an all-powerful creator is contradictory. Dr. Craig responds to each, demonstrating in a clear, concise way how the Christian belief of a Creator God aligns much more closely with the evidence than the beliefs of Buddhists.

A Walking Disaster

Cancer wasn’t my first disaster. In the summer of 2005, my family and I had moved to southern Mississippi just six days before Hurricane Katrina slammed the Gulf Coast. We had no idea the storm was headed for us until the pastor of a church we were visiting alerted the congregation. I remember feeling helpless, unsure what course of action to take. We eventually decided to evacuate, not wanting our daughter’s first memories of her new home to be darkened by a massive storm.

The Self-Evident Nature of Objective Moral Truths | Cold Case Christianity

When people seek to reject the transcendent nature of these claims, I take the following approach. First, I ask them for an historical example. While there are many cultures that have justified their actions with rationalizations we might reject as insufficient, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a culture that used “for the fun of it” as a justification. Secondly, it’s sometimes important to “super-size” an issue to illustrate the point. That’s why I occasionally ask the question, “Is it ever OK to torture babies for fun?” If it isn’t, we’ve just identified a transcendent moral principle we can agree on. You’d be surprised, however, to discover how many people will still reject this “extreme” moral truth claim. The aforementioned graduate student told me, “Well, I would never so such a thing and I would never say it was OK, but I don’t think there’s necessarily an objective truth about it.” Really? I asked her, “So, are you saying there’s a scenario in which it might be appropriate to torture a baby for fun ?” She still hesitated. “So, you’re saying that there could be a scenario in w

We Live in a Very Fortunate Universe

The fine-tuning of the universe for the existence of life is fascinating to me. That’s why I was so excited to find A Fortunate Universe: Life in a Finely Tuned Cosmos, co-authored by astrophysicists Geraint Lewis and Luke Barnes, under my Christmas tree. This book provides the most up-to-date scientific evidence for the fine-tuning of the universe for life. But what is truly unique about this book is that it presents the data at a popular level so that the material is accessible to anyone interested in this topic.

What ‘Fellowship’ Actually Looks Like

However, as I have grown older and matured (the two are not as intrinsically linked as I would like) I have begun to understand the concept of fellowship and its vital role in our Christian lives. Fellowship, rather than being an imposition on my preferred surroundings, serves a vital role in experiencing not only God’s presence in our lives, but also in experiencing all of who God has made me to be. C.S. Lewis summed this up beautifully:

What Does the Detection of Gravity Waves Mean for the Creation Mo

On Thursday, February 11, 2016, the physics and astronomy community were abuzz with the announcement of the first direct detection of gravity waves. Albert Einstein had predicted the existence of gravity waves a century ago. Gravity waves are a part of Einstein’s general theory of relativity, a theory that revolutionized physics. General relativity united space and time into a single entity, what physicists call space-time. Space-time is a substance, sort of like a fabric. Unlike classical, or Newtonian, physics, in which space and time are mere backdrops where the real players, matter and energy, acted out their roles, with general relativity, space-time is an active participant interacting with matter and energy. General relativity relates how gravity and other forces of nature interact with space-time. Einstein realized that, according to his theory, gravity ought to produce very small waves, or ripples, in space-time. Over the years, the predictions of general relativity have been tested repeatedly, and it is one of the best-supported theories in the history of science.

Never Blame God

We Christians can be prone, in our pain, to point a finger and raise a fist at heaven. If we believe in God at all, we should believe he is bigger and stronger than we can even fathom. Our Bibles are filled with what we might call “big God” verses. We’re told God does whatever he pleases (Psalm 115:3; 135:6), nothing happens outside his control (Lamentations 3:37–38; Job 2:10; Proverbs 16:33; Matthew 10:29), he will accomplish all his plans (Job 42:2; Isaiah 46:10; Daniel 4:35), and not even a rebellious human will can thwart him (Proverbs 21:1; Revelation 17:17). Even when others mean evil against us, God means it for good (Genesis 50:20). He is stronger than any threat against his children, and whatever he lovingly allows into our lives, he does so for our full and final good, even as it is indeed painful, not pleasant (Hebrews 12:11).

What We Need Most

Too many of us are toying around with gimmicks and looking for quick fixes and miracle cures. Too many of us are digging deep inside ourselves for the change we want. Too many of us spend all our time tinkering with sports and the internet and home repairs while neglecting the one thing that is most needful--to sit at the feet of Jesus, to see him in the preaching of the Word, to gaze upon him in the Scriptures, to slowly meditate upon the pages of the Bible, to spend uninterrupted, unhurried time with the Lord. This is what we need.

Kindle Deals in Christian Apologetics: Greg's Top Ten Picks of the Week!

With every earthquake and war, understanding the nature of evil and our response to it becomes more urgent. Evil is no longer the concern just of ministers and theologians but also of politicians and the media. We hear of child abuse, ethnic cleansing, AIDS, torture and terrorism, and rightfully we are shocked. But, N. T. Wright says, we should not be surprised. For too long we have naively believed in the modern idea of human progress. In contrast, postmodern thinkers have rightly argued that evil is real, powerful and important, but they give no real clue as to what we should do about it. In fact, evil is more serious than either our culture or our theology has supposed. How then might Jesus' death be the culmination of the Old Testament solution to evil but on a wider and deeper scale than most imagine? Can we possibly envision a world in which we are delivered from evil? How might we work toward such a future through prayer and justice in the present? These are the powerful and pressing themes that N. T. Wright addresses in this book that is at once timely and timeless.  O

A Truck Bombing Killed 50 People, Injured 350 in Kabul

According to reports , a massive truck bomb drove into the Wazir Akbar Khan district, which is the diplomatic area of Kabul—the German, Britsh, Canadian, Chinese, Turkish, Iranian and United States embassies are all in the area, along with Afghanistan’s Foreign Ministry and Presidential Palace and the NATO mission—during rush hour and detonated enough explosives to create a  five-yard deep crater and cause damage as far as a half mile away. Several of the embassies suffered damage and had staffers injured or killed.

A Straightforward Way to Think about the Bible and Science

This is not to say that the Bible is a book of science. It’s bigger than that. The Bible, as we saw in earlier chapters, presents an overarching story — a metanarrative about the world and everyone in it from the perspective of a sovereign God and his plan for the world. Though the Bible is not a book of science, it is not against science either. The relationship of science to the Bible is similar to the relationship between photography and the study of history. Just as science helps clarify our observations of nature, photography enables accurate pictures to be made. Accuracy does help tell better stories, but photographs themselves are not the story, nor are they the only or best way of telling it…

Is Public School an Option?

Is public school an option? For Christians who take the Christian worldview seriously and who understand the issues at stake, the answer is increasingly no. The number of Christian parents coming to this conclusion increases each year. We can understand the nostalgia that many Christians hold about the public schools. I spent every minute of my school life from the first grade to high school graduation in a public school. And yet, I saw the ideological transformation of the schools before my own eyes. Long ago, the public schools entered a Brave New World from which no retreat now seems possible.

The United States Is Expected to Leave the Paris Climate Agreement

The agreement , signed in 2015 by 147 countries, essentially binds all the countries involved to actively fighting climate change. Specifically, the goal all the signatories agreed to is to keep this century’s temperature rise below 2 degrees Celsius—which is the number where the damage is considered too far gone—and more ambitiously, to keep the temperature increase to 1.5 degrees Celsius. It also requires the countries involved to keep the target moving and to reassess after every five years.

Why I Wish Christians Would Argue MORE (No, Seriously)

C.S. Lewis did the same. Michael Ward says Lewis “relished disagreement and debate.” He mentions one student, Derek Brewer, who remembered how Lewis would sometimes say, “I couldn’t disagree more!” But Lewis never “indicated he was offended or that Brewer was somehow unjustified in holding an opinion Lewis considered mistaken. Though they often differed, this led to a ‘fruitful dichotomy of attitudes,’ not to a chilling of their pedagogical relationship.”

46 3 Ways Complementarian Pastors Can Encourage Women

God’s design for headship in the church and home isn’t just a command to be obeyed; it is an expression of God’s best for his people. Yet too often the way we approach the complementarian conversation with women in our churches undermines this truth. Starting from either an apologetic or a defensive posture exposes our lack of trust that God’s Word is God’s best for his daughters (and his sons).

Why Making a Case for the Bible Is More Important Than Arguing About Politics | Cold Case Christianity

We’ve just experienced an unprecedentedly contentious and polarizing political season. Throughout this time, I’ve been tempted to enter the fray, especially on social media , where I’ve observed several heated exchanges between my friends and family members. I refrained from commenting or arguing about politics, however, and a few of my followers have asked why I’ve been so silent on the issues that seem to divide our nation. It’s not that I don’t have a view I would like to share, and it’s not that I feel incompetent to express my views. I simply understand the real battle: If everyone held an accurately informed Christian worldview, the number (and degree) of disputes over the issues facing our country would be dramatically reduced. In other words, if people took the Bible as seriously as they took their political positions, we’d probably agree on almost everything.

Review: What’s the Difference?: Manhood and Womanhood Defined According to the Bible

I appreciated Piper working towards a biblical definition concerning the discussion of manhood and womanhood.  Manhood and womanhood is one of those things that we feel that we know or take for granted but might be hard for us to define when we think of it consciously.  I appreciated that Piper offers definitions of manhood and womanhood by the end of chapter one of the book and was nuanced to note the difficulties and challenges along with how easily his definition could be read in the most uncharitable light (I might that’s true of anyone’s attempt at a definition).  With the definition of manhood and womanhood stated in the end of chapter one Piper then explains each part of his definition in chapter two and three on what is masculinity and feminity respectively.  I also appreciated Piper’s definition of biblical headship and biblical submission in terms of the roles of husband and wife.  As Piper defined it, “Biblical headship for the husband is the divine calling to take primary responsibility for Christlike, servant-leadership, protection and provision in the home” (66).

The Silver Lining on the Zombie Apocalypse

In our current cultural moment, most of us are probably familiar with the myth of the “zombie apocalypse”—the idea of a sudden, widespread uprising of undead that threatens civilization and, more often than not, forces humanity to fight off hordes of shambling corpses to prevent its own extinction. This basic premise has been the starting point for films, TV shows, and other media texts for nearly half a century, from George Romero’s foundational 1968 masterpiece Night of the Living Dead to AMC’s popular series The Walking Dead, which recently concluded its seventh season.
