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 the Bible Does (and Doesn’t) Say About the Life (or Death) of the Soul | Cold Case Christianity

“Now there was a certain rich man, and he habitually dressed in purple and fine linen, gaily living in splendor every day. And a certain poor man named Lazarus was laid at his gate, covered with sores, and longing to be fed with the crumbs which were falling from the rich man’s table; besides, even the dogs were coming and licking his sores. Now it came about that the poor man died and he was carried away by the angels to Abraham’s bosom; and the rich man also died and was buried. And in Hades he lifted up his eyes, being in torment, and saw Abraham far away, and Lazarus in his bosom. And he cried out and said, ‘Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water and cool off my tongue; for I am in agony in this flame.’ But Abraham said, ‘Child, remember that during your life you received your good things, and likewise Lazarus bad things; but now he is being comforted here, and you are in agony. ‘And besides all this, between us and you there is a great chasm fixed, in order that those who wish to come over from here to you may not be able, and that none may cross over from there to us.

There Is Hope for Atheists!

To keep a long story short: I attended a Creation Seminar at Cedarville College [now Cedarville University], sat in rapt attention as Ken Ham told me “the rest of the story,” and I realized that all of the fossil finds I believed supported evolution were, in all cases, misinterpreted. I was blown away! So, learning the truth about evolution preceded my realizing that God was real (after all!) and that the Bible was His Word. I became a creationist before I became a believer in Christ.

Do You Resent the Life God Gave You?

When we are suffering and feel resentment towards those who are not, or when we resent others for having something that we don’t have, our feelings are rooted in some form of unbelief towards God. We are either believing that he’s not good (“If he was truly good, he would not deny me what I want”), or that he’s not in control (“If he was truly sovereign, he could have prevented this or given me what I think I need”), or that he’s not trustworthy (“This can’t be what’s best for me”). The battle begins at the level of our thoughts — that we take them captive and make them obedient to Christ (2 Corinthians 10:5).

The Two Guys to Blame for the Myth of Constant Warfare between Religion and Science

I propose, then, to present to you this evening an outline of the great sacred struggle for the liberty of Science—a struggle which has been going on for so many centuries. A tough contest this has been! A war continued longer—with battles fiercer, with sieges more persistent, with strategy more vigorous than in any of the comparatively petty warfares of Alexander, or Caesar, or Napoleon . . . In all modern history, interference with Science in the supposed interest of religion—no matter how conscientious such interference may have been—has resulted in the direst evils both to Religion and Science, and invariably.

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

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:

Books - Cross Examined - Christian Apologetic Ministry | Frank Turek | Christian Apologetics | Christian Apologetics Speakers

Correct, Not Politically Correct: How Same Sex Marriage Hurts Everyone Why not legalize same-sex marriage? Who could it possibly hurt? Using sound reasoning and evidence—not religion—award-winning author Frank Turek shows that everyone will be hurt including children, the nation, and even homosexuals themselves. Turek provides concise answers to objections about equal rights, discrimination, and being born a certain way, and he exposes the real reason gay activists are trying to impose same-sex marriage on the country without a single vote from the people. Turek’s message is direct but respectful. It is correct, not politically correct. And it is a message that we must not ignore. For details, see ImpactApologetics.com .

‘Anne With an E’ Tackles Serious Themes Without Being Heavy-Handed

Without being heavy-handed, it’s clear that Anne the orphan works as a stand-in for the modern refugee. When Anne first attends school, she’s a bit socially awkward from spending most of her life in an orphanage, save a few years of “care” by a drunk and his abused wife, who beat her and treated Anne as a functional slave. After only a minor infraction, parents in town ban together to insist that Anne not return to school, citing her as a danger to the other children.

Happy Birthday, Dear Church

Recognizing that Pentecost Sunday is the church’s birthday explains why many congregations include church-belonging rituals (like confirmations, first Communions, and baptisms) in their celebrations. When a local congregation commits to annually celebrating the church’s birthday, they are declaring that, as one common church saying goes, “The church is God’s plan A for the world—and there’s no plan B.” Yes, our individual journeys matter, but they are always part of the larger story God is telling through the people who gather in his name.

The 3 Great Missionary Confusions

Certainly there are many things we can adjust—food, living situations, clothing, language, to name a few. But the gospel is not one of them. Sure, we should draw out shame and honor when it’s clear in Scripture. But when we “cut and paste” the gospel itself—even giving different interpretations to clear biblical texts so we can fit the culture—we’re giving up the biblical narrative. We’re giving up the storyline God has carefully woven throughout. And to give up the biblical narrative is to overcontextualize.

God Parents Us Through Trials

Viewing God as a perfect, loving, and wise parent will help us submit to him as he “parents” us through life. He is easy to please, but hard to satisfy. He disciplines us for righteousness sake. He sets up boundaries for our protection. He gives good gifts in perfect proportion according to his wisdom. He already knows the end goal he has for us, and he wants to take us there through these means. He knows what we will be. As George MacDonald said, “He regards men not as they are merely, but as they shall be.”

Why White-Centered Discipleship Hurts Us All

Nonetheless, there are ways to ensure that these crucial parts of the body do not withdraw for good. Make intentional room for marginalized voices. Meagan Gillan, who leads the women ministries program in the Evangelical Covenant Church, is a positive example of someone trying to rebalance women’s discipleship. In particular, she is working to ensure that marginalized voices are represented in the various events and programs they do in the ECC. “I’ve learned that we must include every voice, not as an add-on, afterthought, or ‘oops,’ but as equals who have voice, power, and influence,” says Gillan. “I don’t want an event or team that has a few women of color involved so the majority women can feel good about themselves. The whole experience must communicate that this is for all of us, and everybody may feel uncomfortable or may experience cultural difference at some point. As a leader, part of my job is to coach women in this and to encourage the kind of discomfort that leads to blessing.”

Do Computer Simulations Provide Evidence for Evolution?

Second, evolutionary computer programs include “stair step active information.” In his book Climbing Mount Improbable, Dawkins argues that evolution can occur in an incremental, step-by-step process. As a result, for the evolution of a worm to a whale, for instance, each intermediate step must be functional. This raises challenges in nature, but computer simulations are often less restricted. The Avida program only works because the creators have carefully designed a “staircase” where each step is functional along the way. According to Dembski, without this designed process, the simulation fails.

Area Youth Ambassadors to the World - Birmingham Christian Family Magazine

Briarwood, by organizing the event, understood the importance of helping Christian youth think deeply about their faith. By bringing in world-class educators they, as well as the sponsor partners, showed a continuing commitment to promoting a deep solid faith among our youth. I had the pleasure in talking with many parents and young adults at the event and the serious staunchness to Christianity was evident and astounding. It is nice to witness the handy-work of God as he constantly raises up able and willing Christians to be ambassadors to the world. The work, however, in our state has only started.  We need to be ever mindful of how our culture is changing even in the deep-south. Bemoaning how things should be or were in the past is not helpful to the church’s evangelical mission. If Rethink taught me anything, it’s that there are young people out there that are serious Christians and they want to make a real difference in their community, country and world. We as Christian adults need to turn our attention toward our youth and create environments where they can think deeply and honestly about their Christian faith.

Book Review: Forensic Faith by J. Warner Wallace

Introduction As an elementary school teacher, I can appreciate the importance of being prepared.  Everyday before my students arrive at school, I know that there are numerous things that need to be ready in order to be an effective instructor.  Most importantly, I need to know the material I am teaching and be ready to present it in a way that my students can understand and apply.  When I teach my students anything, the ultimate goal is for them to take ownership of their own learning and be able to execute the skill I am teaching them independently. The same is true for Christian case makers.  Our job is not only to present the truth of the Christian faith in a way that is understandable (evangelism), but we also want to instruct in such a way that our listeners will ultimately be able to make the case themselves (discipleship).  We want our listeners to know Christ and then be equipped to make Him known to others. However, this is often times easier said than done.  And cold-case homicide detective and Christian case maker J. Warner Wallace understands.

Wonder Woman and the Gender Wars - Russell Moore

This week marks the release of the latest DC superhero, Wonder Woman —and with the film comes a hubbub of conversation about what it means to be male and female in this supposedly post-gender society. Some are outraged that some theaters showed early release showings of the movie to restricted all-women audiences. Others are angry that the super-heroine apparently shaves under her arms (which no self-respecting island amazon would do, some say).

Baylor, senior counsel for the Alliance Defending Freedom, which praised the potential rule. “The government has put forward a common-sense solution that ensures that Americans won’t be forced to violate their deepest convictions while maintaining multiple ways for people to obtain the drugs in question if they want them.”

50 Ramadan Bombathon in Afghanistan (David Wood)

Support our videos on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/user?u=3615911 The Ramadan Bombathon continues, as a suicide bomber slaughters scores of civilians in Kabul, Afghanistan. Reuters reports: "A powerful bomb hidden in a sewage tanker exploded in the morning rush hour in the center of the Afghan capital on Wednesday, police said, killing at least 80 people, wounding hundreds and damaging embassy buildings. The victims appeared mainly to have been Afghan civilians. The bomb, one of the deadliest in Kabul and coming at the start of the holy month of Ramadan, exploded close to the fortified entrance to the German embassy, wounding some staff, German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel said. Pictures showed the embassy building with its windows ripped out."
