America Began With a Protest Over Prayer

When the Continental Congress came to Philadelphia for the first time in September 1774, they wondered how they should begin. Gathering at Carpenters Hall, someone proposed they begin with prayer. This was opposed, and a debate ensued. The disagreement was not over prayer to God but prayer with one another. Quakers, Congregationalists, Anglicans, Presbyterians and so on never prayed together. Each believed the other was flawed in faith and so prayer in common bordered on sin rather than worship.

Just as there are cultural narratives with respect to science, there is a cultural narrative with respect to Islam. Darío Fernández-Morera explains it well, “What economist call ‘stakeholder interests and incentives,’ which affects the research of academics in the humanities no less and perhaps even more than those in the sciences…Perhaps it has to do with what psychologists call ‘motivational blindness,’ which inhibits an individual’s ability to perceive inconvenient data. Perhaps it has to do with the ‘innocence of intellectuals.’ Perhaps it is simply the result of shoddy research by a number of university professors repeated by many journalists.”

Jim DeMint and The Heritage Foundation, ESPN and Politics, United Methodists, and Remembering Walker Percy

ESPN and Politics. You probably read about the layoffs at the sports network ESPN. According to The New York Times report on the downsizing, the network lost such celebrities as “former N.F.L. players Trent Dilfer and Danny Kanell, former N.B.A. player Len Elmore, former baseball general manager Jim Bowden and longtime N.F.L. reporter Ed Werder.” ESPN and many media analysts have tried to spin this layoff as a preemptive response to changes in the industry. They say that ESPN is being smart by positioning themselves for those changes. But it’s also true, according to the same Times report, that “the network has lost more than 10 million subscribers over the past several years.” A part of the drop in viewership is technological. People are watching more sporting events on their mobile devices than ever before. But Sean Davis at The Federalist believes that an “obsession with politics” is contributing to ESPN’s troubles. Davis writes: “Politics didn’t doom ESPN, but it’s going to make it extremely difficult for ESPN to dig itself out. . . . People in this business know you have to pick a side.

Two chapters later in Acts, the apostle Paul gets a similar treatment. After he healed a crippled man in Jesus’s name, “When the crowds saw what Paul had done, they lifted up their voices, saying in Lycaonian, ‘The gods have come down to us in the likeness of men!’” (Acts 14:11). How does Paul respond to their praise? “We also are men, of like nature with you, and we bring you good news, that you should turn from these vain things to a living God, who made the heaven and the earth and the sea and all that is in them” (Acts 14:15).

God Will Hold You Through Your Habits

Good habits protect what’s most important. They keep us on the track of perseverance even when we don’t feel like persevering. They help us access the channels of God’s ongoing grace in the times we need it most (often when we don’t feel like it), and so preserve and keep our souls. Good spiritual habits keep us in God’s word, and in prayer, and among God’s people, even as we ride the emotional ups and downs of life.

This Black Pastor Led a White Church—in 1788

Following his indenture, Haynes volunteered in 1774 as a Minuteman and in October 1776 joined the Continental Army, thus becoming part of the American Revolution. Haynes volunteered just as the Continental Navy and Army suffered heavy casualties at the Battle of Valcour Bay on October 11, 1776 and General Washington’s forces met defeat at the Battle of White Plains on October 28, 1776. In November 1776 Continental forces witnessed over three thousand casualties and the loss of over one hundred cannons and thousands of muskets in defeats at Fort Washington and Fort Lee. Lemuel served in the Continental Army until November 17, 1776, when he contracted typhus and was relieved of duty. Despite the dismal prospects of the Revolution at this point, as a patriot Haynes was determined to defend with life and tongue the newly developing nation and its ideals of liberty. His political values were shaped by his “idealization of George Washington and allegiance to the Federalist Party.” Helen MacLam, “Introduction: Black Puritan on the Northern Frontier,” in Rich­ard Newman, ed.

The Resurrection Answers Three Big Questions

“The resurrection of Jesus Christ is either one of the most wicked, vicious, heartless hoaxes ever foisted on the minds of human beings—or it is the most remarkable fact of history.” My father has often shared these words to me in person, and he’s written them in his books. The older I get, the more I realize they’re unmistakably true. There’s no middle ground with the resurrection of Jesus. Either it is a colossal fabrication or the most important event in history.

Teaching Your Children To Be Apologists

My introduction to apologetics began when I was new in my walk as a Christian over twenty-eight years ago. Since that time, there have been countless conversations between my husband and me examining various teachings and belief systems that contradict our biblical faith. These conversations went hand in hand with studies we conducted because of challenges to our faith, the desire to minister to others, and the desire to be better informed. Our children could not have possibly avoided overhearing many of these conversations any more than my husband could have avoided hearing that “ old country ” music that his father played in their home while he was growing up. While I guessed that some of our biblical arguments would be assimilated by our children, I was not content to leave it to that. We worked to equip them intentionally.

Atheists May Not Believe In God, But They Still Live in His World

Many people claim not to believe in God, but in my experience, it’s only a matter of time before their lives betray them. Why? Remember, even those who don’t believe in God still live in the world God created. It’s inescapable.

I want to address them in hope that you might experience grace to trust God and his word regarding marriage.

Our Homemaker, Who Art in Heaven

God had a clear purpose for putting humanity in a garden beyond mere enjoyment of the scenery. As Genesis 2:15 indicates, “The Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it.” God did not make a home for his children and leave them to idleness. Rather, he commissioned them with priestly work. Although translations have, from the second century B.C., rendered “to work and to take care of” as actions related to the care of the garden, some (like Sailhamer) argue that it is better translated, “to worship and obey.” As if in keeping with this translation, verses 16 and 17 outline the specific commandment God gives to Adam: He may eat of every tree of the garden but one. Humanity’s first home was built on the principles of God’s generosity—but this must not be confused with God’s permissiveness. Home had one important rule, which God expected his children to heed. As the text makes clear, God did not forbid his children the fruit of the knowledge of good and evil for reasons of caprice. Rather, his forbiddance was an expression of his goodness—another occasion of paternal protection: “When you eat from it, you will certainly die.

What You Should Know About the Prosperity Gospel

“In light of Scripture, the prosperity gospel is fundamentally flawed,” Jones says. “At bottom, it is a false gospel because of its faulty view of the relationship between God and man. Simply put, if the prosperity gospel is true, grace is obsolete, God is irrelevant, and man is the measure of all things. Whether they’re talking about the Abrahamic covenant, the atonement, giving, faith, or prayer, prosperity teachers turn the relationship between God and man into a quid pro quo transaction.”

Christianophobia is Big Business

When Arizona was working to pass strict anti-illegal immigration laws, activists called for boycotts of the state. Major League Baseball (MLB) listened, but no other major companies showed much interest. The law was signed in 2010 (parts of it were blocked by the Supreme Court). MLB teams happily continue to train in Arizona.

In the Gorgeous ‘Your Name,’ Love Is a Liturgy

Like Meyer’s Twilight series, which made teenage female desire palatable to the masses by translating it into vampiric bloodlust, Your Name uses its central conceit as a metaphor for the emotional yearnings and bodily insecurities inherent to adolescence. In other words, it’s a coming-of-age story, and the arc the characters follow is a natural one. At first, Taki and Metsuha assume that what they’re experiencing is a dream, and simply have fun with the respective lives they’ve fallen into. As they come to realize that their situation is indeed a real one—and that they’re in the same boat—they begin to work together, communicating through notes they leave in each other’s notebooks and phones, and even on their own skin via Sharpie markers. Eventually, they learn to “care” for each other in every sense of the word.

The Horror Facing the People of North Korea Every Day

North Korea’s official position is that the country is atheist. Citizens of the dictatorship are forced to worship the Kim family, and anyone who does not is subject to immediate punishment—arrest, torture or death, which could come in the form of a public execution. And often times the punishment is doled out for three generations, meaning that a person’s children and grandchildren would also be subject to repercussions of any crime that person is suspected of committing.

How You Can Actually Become More Generous

A few years ago, when my wife, Jenny, and I were watching the local TV news, one of the stories was about a low-income housing community in our city that had lost air conditioning in every single apartment. This was in the middle of July, and the weather was sweltering. The broadcast showed pictures of hundreds of people, including many children, sitting in the shade outside the apartment building, fanning themselves and trying not to move so they could stay cool. The man who owned the apartment complex issued a statement that because of costs, he would not be replacing the units immediately and that the tenants would have to find alternative means of cooling their apartments.

A Review of Zombie Science: Is Darwinism Dead?

The premise of Zombie Science is that there is a similar phenomenon at work in the question of human origins. Rather than following the evidence wherever it leads, says Wells, many scientists are committed to methodological naturalism, which is the view that science is limited to materialistic explanations. Wells is careful to indicate that he is not calling certain people zombies, but rather that there is a persistence to defending materialistic explanations of science even after these examples have been shown to be empirically dead—hence his use of the title “zombies.”

The Great Female Commission

As a former Marine Corps officer and seminary grad, Robinson has dedicated her career to the command in Hebrews 5 that all believers should be teachers of God’s Word. In Robinson’s view, some Christians lack the opportunity—and sometimes the initiative—to pursue robust discipleship relationships, which means they miss out on spiritual growth for themselves and others. Women, in particular, often don’t have access to the institutional structures that typically slide men into formalized mentorships. “Local churches have a great opportunity to create a leadership pipeline for men and women by pursuing an intentional model for discipleship,” says Robinson.

Wisdom in Evangelism

The thing that immediately caught my attention was that the speakers were preparing the audience to have wisdom in evangelism, yet they were teaching apologetics. It is the same reason that J. Warner Wallace says, “ In this day and age, evangelism is spelled A-P-O-L-O-G-E-T-I-C-S .” Our culture is at a point where we have to take a different tactic in the way we approach evangelism. People are being exposed to different religions today like never before, and this is causing people to ask questions. I was talking to my dad over the weekend and I asked him how much he knew about other religions while growing up. He grew up in a very small town where everyone he spent time with went to the same church and the same school. He said that he grew up in a bubble where he wasn’t exposed to other world religions and different belief systems. There was no reason to question his beliefs.

Star Wars: Fate of the Jedi- a Christian reflection on the most recently completed Star Wars series

Ultimately, readers encounter the Celestials–a group of beings (Father, Son, and Daughter… and later Mother) of extreme power. These beings are tied into the whole plot of the expanded universe books of Star Wars in some ingenious (and sometimes a bit questionable) ways. Although these beings may appear to parallel a kind of pantheon, it becomes clear that they are not. They may be seemingly eternal, but they are also contingent: it was entirely possible for them to be destroyed. Again, it is not these beings who drive reality; it is the Force. The Force is the power in the universe, the ‘all in all’ of the Star Wars universe. Yet, as I’ve argued above, it is hard to envision the force as entirely impersonal. It delivers prophecies and sometimes even answers the call of those in need. The “Trinity” created and driven by the Force ultimately drive the Force themselves in many ways.

Investigating Easter: Were The Disciples Simply Influenced By Limited "Spiritual" Sightings?

This proposal may begin to explain the transformation of the apostles, but it fails to explain the empty tomb and offers an explanation of the resurrection observations that is inconsistent with the biblical record. It’s not unusual to have a persuasive witness influence the beliefs of other eyewitnesses (I’ve written about this in Cold-Case Christianity , Chapter 4). I’ve investigated a number of murders in which one emphatic witness has persuaded others that something occurred, even though the other witnesses weren’t even present to see the event for themselves. But these persuaded witnesses were easily distinguished from the one who persuaded them once I began to ask for their account of what happened. Only the persuader possessed the details in their most robust form. For this reason, his or her account was typically the most comprehensive, while the others tended to generalize since they didn’t actually see the event for themselves. In addition, when pressed to repeat the story of the one persuasive witness, the other witnesses eventually pointed to that witness as their source, especially when pressured.

Nancy Pelosi: ‘Democratic Candidates Shouldn’t Have to Be Pro-Choice’

Pelosi’s solution seems to be to strive for a more inclusive party, opening the doors up to the anti-abortion Democrats the party has tended to hold at arm’s length. But that won’t fly with everyone. Democratic National Committee Chairman Thomas Perez said earlier this year that abortion rights are a “non-negotiable” for Democrats, and urged the party to speak with “one voice” on the lightning rod issue.

The Lesbian Porn Star Who Claims to be an Evangelical Christian | The Stream

We have to seek God for ourselves – I do believe that the devil deceives people – including myself at times. We must return to the truth that God has set before us in His Word. One a week – Bible in hand – church attendance isn’t enough – never will be. We must read, study, and meditate on His Word – asking the Spirit to help us understand. Then use the understanding to live our lives as Holy as possible. This young women needs our prayers so that she sees she is be deceived. She is justifying her life choices herself rather than live the Word.

Pray Big Things for Your Little Ones

While it’s tempting for parents to spend excessive time praying for the behavior of our children, we honor God when we remember to pray that their behavior will not just be obedient, but will glorify him. This goes for our spouses, friends, parents, and other loved ones as well. When we ask God to intrude in their lives in such a way that they honor him in the way they live, we are praying godly prayers for godly behavior with godly motives.
