Is there a gospel in the stars? - Christian Research Institute

Over the years I have observed an alarming trend toward what I call “magic apologetics.” In place of an emphasis on such great apologetic verities as the creation of the cosmos, the resurrection of Christ, and the inspiration of Scripture, we are being bombarded with host of apologetic pretenders. One of the more curious brands of magic apologetics circulating through the Christian community is called the gospel in the stars (GIS). This apologetic posits that God from the beginning wrote the unique message of the gospel in the signs of the zodiac. At first blush this magic apologetic may appear to have merit; closer examination, however, exposes it as a counterfeit.

5 The Briefing 05-05-17 - AlbertMohler.com

Critics of the executive order yesterday have zeroed in on this particular statement because in it, it is now argued that churches are liberated by the President’s executive order to make overtly political statement from the pulpit. Now at this point we need to note that the last thing Gospel minded churches need to do is to politicize their pulpits, but we also have to recognize that when the Bible is preached, there are political ramifications. And when there is an election campaign, some of the most important theological worldview and moral issues always come to the fore. Just to take an example in the 2016 presidential election, the issue of abortion was a stark distinction between the Republican and the Democratic candidates and the Republican and the Democratic Party platforms. There’s simply no mistaking this, and a faithful pastor preaching the Scripture and honoring the Gospel speaking of what this picture reveals about the sanctity of human life during the term that could involve a political campaign could indeed have been charged with violating the federal law in terms of this IRS reauthorization statute known as the Johnson Amendment.

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.

‘Is Genesis History?’: Revisiting an Age-Old Debate

Ultimately, I worry that the methodology and mindset presupposed by Is Genesis History?  may inadvertently hinder our unity and witness as the church. Zealous atheists watching this film will likely find ammunition by which to confirm their warfare model of “faith versus science.” Sincere skeptics may experience it as an obstacle to faith. Christians who lack an interest in science or creation issues may experience the “college-crisis-of-faith” scenario above. Evolutionary creationists watching will likely feel their view was not well represented (for instance, in the final interview and conclusion). And old-earth creationists will probably feel simply ignored.

Trump’s Religious Liberty Order Doesn’t Answer Most Evangelicals’ Prayers

Gone are the exemptions for religious groups faced with accommodating LGBT antidiscrimination regulations that conflict with their faith convictions. Instead, the order—titled “Promoting Free Speech and Religious Liberty”—extends political speech protections for pastors and religious organizations, aiming to let them to talk about politics without penalty. It also requests “regulatory relief” for religious groups, including evangelical universities, caught in a court battle over the Affordable Care Act’s contraception mandate.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Judge Not?

So, Jesus is placing, as it were, a neon-red-blinking sign over others that tells us, “Caution: judge at your own risk.” It is meant to give us serious pause and examine ourselves before saying anything. Our fallen nature is profoundly selfish and proud and often hypocritical, judging ourselves indulgently and others severely. We are quick to strain gnats and swallow camels (Matthew 23:24), quick to take tweezers to another’s eye when we need a forklift for our own. It is better to “judge not” than to judge like this, since we will be judged in the same way we judge others.

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

Yes, those who have never heard of Jesus Christ may or may not still lead a life relatively free from sin. It isn’t just a matter of being lost. When a person is baptized they become born again to Christ and the Holy Spirit remains in them, unless and until they steep themselves in grave sin. Now, they have chosen to live in direct opposition to the teachings of Christ. It makes me wonder how you can hold a bible in your hand and profess to believe in Christ and attend some type of religious service and miss even the simplest meanings. I walked away from the Lord when I was a teenager and I lived a life of sin too and it wasn’t until I was broken that the Lord was able to even get in and open up my heart. I was blessed beyond measure to have heard Him and to have chosen to change my path. My point is that if you profess the name of Jesus and then you totally immerse yourself into sin which can bring eternal damnation, you are truly living in Satan’s world and it is only by God’s grace that you may discover this before it is too late. The enemy has worked very hard to bring about people like this woman.

Were Christians Really Persecuted in the First Century?

“In the first century, Christians were crucified, burned, and thrown to the wild animals simply for proclaiming the name of Christ. This was a period of immense persecution, and if Christians wanted to survive, they had to hide out from the governing authorities.” While there is some truth in this statement, it is certainly an overstatement. Yes, Christians were persecuted, but in the first century, most persecution was local and sporadic.

BreakPoint: President Trump’s Religious Freedom Order

I couldn’t agree more. And I’m thankful that at least so far this administration, unlike the last one, isn’t forcing that choice on Americans. Still, protecting religious freedom requires more than just noble sentiments. And here is where the executive order disappoints. After directing the federal government to “vigorously enforce Federal law’s robust protections for religious freedom,” the measures set forth in the order are, well, less than vigorous.

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.

I expect that, if you’re honest, you may have your own reservations about the upcoming ceremony. I hope you will heed those reservations and reconsider.

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

Wow. ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’ Actually Tackles Some Really Heavy Issues

During the moments in Guardians when the screen isn’t jumping from space ship battle to moments of comic relief, the movie deals with surprisingly heavy themes. Child trafficking is key to the plot. There’s an uncomfortable scene featuring where sex robots dot the landscape of an outlaw bar, which could have been used to add a level of lust to the film and draw in the lowest common denominator to the audience.

Why Does John Piper Complicate Saving Faith?

I think that’s what Paul was getting at when he said in the case of unbelievers that Satan had blinded their minds “to keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God” (2 Corinthians 4:4). In other words, to come to a true saving faith, whether a little child or an adult, you have to experience the miracle of spiritual sight of the supremely valuable glory of Christ, the image of God. In other words, Christ must be perceived as supremely glorious, that a 6-year-old experiences that. He would never use those words probably, unless he’s incredibly well-taught. But he wouldn’t need to use the words. He needs the miracle, though, of seeing Jesus Christ as trusted as the best of all. The most glorious and valuable of all.

I Don't Take The Bible Literally, And Neither Does Anyone Else

Is the Late First-Century Too Late for Eyewitnesses of Jesus to Have Lived?

“Known for his role in launching the “Death of God” movement, Robinson wrote a revolutionary book titled Redating the New Testament, in which he posited revised dates for the New Testament books that place them earlier than the most conservative scholars ever held. Robinson places Matthew at 40 to after 60, Mark at about 45 to 60, Luke at before 57 to after 60, and John at from before 40 to after 65. This would mean that one or two Gospels could have been written as early as seven years after the crucifixion. At the latest they were all composed within the lifetimes of eyewitnesses and contemporaries of the events. Assuming the basic integrity and reasonable accuracy of the writers, this would place the reliability of the New Testament documents beyond reasonable doubt.”

How to Love God While You’re Suffering from a Mental Illness

And while that may all be true, mental illness can be a road filled with overwhelming feelings of condemnation, fear and rejection. And as I grow in my understanding of the Lord’s heart, His voice sounds different now from the way it did when I was a depressed 16-year-old. Then I felt like the Lord looked at me and said, “Pick yourself up by your bootstraps,” “Smile! You’re supposed to be joyful!” or “What’s wrong with you, haven’t you read, ‘Be anxious about nothing?’”

Does James 1:5 Teach about Praying for a Testimony? - Christian Research Institute

There is nothing more important to a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS, Mormon) than having a personal “testimony” confirm the truthfulness of the Book of Mormon and, ultimately, Mormonism. Fourteen-year-old Joseph Smith, Jr., first utilized James 1:5 as a Mormon proof text in 1820. Mormonism teaches that God the Father and Jesus appeared to the eventual church founder in a vision that took place soon after he prayed about the true church.

When Arizona was working to pass strict anti-illegal immigration laws, activists called for boycotts of the state.

MLB teams happily continue to train in Arizona.

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.
