Build Your Life on the Mercies of God

The mercies of God ground our life in Christ. Because he’s immeasurably gracious, we have endless riches forever in him.

Two Minute Clip: The Gospel Is Not About You

The good news of Christ is for us, but it is not ultimately about us. If we get this wrong, we fall short of the gospel’s ultimate aim.

Exposing the Child Sex Trafficking Epidemic in Cambodia

The dark epidemic of sex trafficking in Cambodia is unhinged, and the world needs to wake up. Cambodia is known as a top destination for child rape. While the children are clearly frightened and confused, their innocence is bargained away by pedophiles and rapists who take pleasure in their pain. There are an estimated 30-40,000 sex workers across Cambodia with nearly half under the age of 15. Police are paid off, and the government is known to turn a blind eye since sex tourism is fueling the economy. Cambodia is a sexual playground for those indifferent to the destruction caused by their lust.

The Ten Commandments of Apologetics

When I first began my apologetic ministry, I learned the hard way—as probably many of you did—that possessing apologetic knowledge and the ability to answer the tough questions does not qualify someone as a good apologist. It’s also necessary to engage unbelievers in such a way that they will give us a fair hearing—that they will listen, understand, and seriously consider our perspective. In this article, I’ll lay out the do’s and don’ts of good apologetics. On the “do” side are the principles of sound apologetic tactics. On the “don’t” side are the pitfalls of poor apologetics—things to avoid. Together they provide the ground rules of effective apologetic evangelism. I call these principles the ten commandments of apologetics. 1

BP This Week: Bernie Sanders, Transgender Athletes, and Assisted Suicide in Britain

Senator Bernie Sanders, the runner-up for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination, said while grilling a Trump budget appointee that Christians who believe in the exclusivity of Christ aren’t the kind of people “this country is supposed to be about.” As Emma Green at The Atlantic observed, this functions as a religious test for office, which is prohibited by Article VI of the U.S. Constitution.

Are the Prayers of Two or Three People More Powerful Than the Prayers of One? | Stand to Reason

In our text, Jesus is drawing a connection between church discipline and this Old Testament judicial practice. Jesus is communicating the idea that the church has authority to remove a brother on the evidence of two or three witnesses. Jesus knew that removing someone from the congregation would be a very difficult thing for any church to do, so He promises His presence in that judgment. Therefore, when using the expression “when two or three are gathered in my name, there am I among them,” He is telling them that He is with them in these judicial matters. Moreover, since Jesus has given them this authority, it’s as if Jesus expelled them from the congregation Himself.

An Open Letter to Senator Bernie Sanders | The Stream

Everyone regardless of their theology or lack thereof subscribes to a belief system. Be it believer’s, unbeliever’s or disbeliever’s . We all have something upon which we hang our “party hat’. In Bernie’s case his refusal to acknowledge that Christian gentleman’s position on a clearly stated & theologically sound doctrine embraced by Christians for two millennia is intolerant. So for as much as Mr Sanders vote matters when Mr Vought is confirmed, his basis for withholding that vote appears to be predicated upon something other than Mr Vought’s capacity for meeting that job’s criteria. So the senators ” unbelief” , perhaps his adherence to some form of humanism & possibly atheism both of which are”beliefs” was “forced ‘ upon Mr Vought’ by virtue of Bernie’s decision to make his Christian faith the issue. Had Sanders simply just referenced his refusal to vote yea because it was his “solemn duty” as a member of the “party of resistance’ that would have been a different matter.

The Christian Case for Carpe Diem

A more Christian attitude, which can be attained at any age, is that of leaving futurity in God’s hands. We may as well, for God will certainly retain it whether we leave it to Him or not. Never … commit your virtue or your happiness to the future. Happy work is best done by the man who takes his long-term plans somewhat lightly and works from moment to moment “as to the Lord.” It is only our daily bread that we are encouraged to ask for. The present is the only time in which any duty can be done or any grace received.

How Can You Live Without Sex? • ChurchLeaders.com

We also need to remind ourselves that we can value our sexuality through self-control as much as through intercourse. Love isn’t just communicated by the sex one has had, but also by the sex one hasn’t had. This is true of the wife who says no to a colleague’s sexual advances on a business trip—out of love for her God and her husband. It’s true of the same-sex-attracted woman who stops sleeping with her same-sex partner after becoming a Christian—out of her new love for Jesus. It’s also true of the same-sex-attracted man who remains a virgin until his dying day—also out of love for God.

Hundreds of New Churches Not Enough to Satisfy Southern Baptists

The only measure where Southern Baptists are growing is their number of churches, adding 479 churches last year for a total of more than 47,000. But leaders are concerned that they have fewer people to fill those churches. Congregations reported an overall drop in Sunday service attendance (down 7%) and fewer new believers being added through baptism (down 5%).

Family and Politics: Why I’m Against ‘Keeping the Peace’

When I notice someone I love making a statement with which I disagree, I’ll often kindly say something like, “Well, I think about this a little differently.” The conversation may end there—which is fine—but if the person wants to pursue the conversation, he or she knows I’m happy to engage further. When it doesn’t feel like it’s the right time to delve deeper into a tough topic, it’s helpful to make an invitation to talk more at a later date. Asking a few questions is also a humble and effective approach; it helps reduce defensive tension, and it allows us to better understand why others believe and behave as they do.

Support our videos on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/user?u=3615911 On June 3, 2017, three jihadis drove a van into pedestrians walking across London Bridge. After fleeing the van, the jihadis proceeded to Borough Market, where they stabbed a number of people. As usual, British politician Theresa May is calling such violence "a perversion of Islam." But does May's plan for dealing with Islamic violence make sense? David Wood discusses the issue.

Yikes. This ‘Transformers: The Last Knight’ Poster Is a Mess

Yikes. Obviously, getting Mark Wahlberg, Anthony Hopkins and Isabella Moner into the same place for a photoshoot is impossible, as these are unimaginably wealthy stars who can’t just be expected to carve a little time out of their schedule to stand around getting their picture taken. Nevertheless, there must have been a better way to photoshop them into looking like they were all together. This looks like some poor intern was tasked with just cutting their pictures out of the pages of US Weekly with a pair of children’s scissors and pasting them onto a picture of Transformers with a roll of Scotch Tape.

Q & A With Dr. Craig: Objections to Belief in God

Dr. Craig: Well, it's interesting, Kevin, this really isn't an argument against the existence of God—this is an argument against having unconditional moral obligations. So this would be a problem for any ethicist who thinks that we do have unconditional moral obligations, which is what most ethicists do believe, that we have an unconditional moral obligation, for example, to treat other persons as ends in themselves, and worthy of respect rather than as means to ends. So this is an important attack upon objective ethics. And I think that it's just clearly mistaken in that a person can be unconditionally obligated to do something morally, but he has the freedom not to do it, he has the freedom to disobey. And that's all that moral freedom requires, is the ability to do immoral things. So if we have unconditional moral obligations – which I think we most certainly do, such as to worship God – nevertheless we have libertarian freedom to not live up to our unconditional moral obligations, to sin and to do wrong and to be immoral…

Is It Sin to Be Sad?

One day, perfect circumstances and perfect contentment in Christ will collide (Revelation 21:1–5). Should we work to fix this broken planet now? Absolutely. But we must also come to grips with the fact that until Jesus comes and makes all things new, at best we will often be sorrowful because of the pain on this planet, while also always rejoicing because of the perfections of our Savior (2 Corinthians 6:10). To be able to grieve deeply and rejoice relentlessly at the same time is a mark of Christian maturity.

Lay Aside the Weight of Perfection

God is calling us to the wonderfully refreshing experience of getting our eyes off ourselves and how we’re measuring up, and onto Jesus (Hebrews 12:2). He wants us to stop pursuing or being paralyzed by perfectionism so we are free to pursue love (1 Corinthians 14:1; 1 Timothy 1:5) and pursue trusting him with all our hearts (Proverbs 3:5). And if perfectionism has an inordinate influence on us, God will mercifully design circumstances to defeat our best efforts to fight sin “successfully” until we learn where our freedom really comes from.

Why Assumptions Can Be Hazardous to the Truth of Christianity | Cold Case Christianity

As a skeptic, I was slow to accept even the slightest possibility that miracles were possible. My commitment to naturalism prevented me from considering such nonsense. But after my experience with presuppositions at the crime scene, I decided that I needed to be fair with my naturalistic inclinations. I couldn’t begin with my conclusion, and if the evidence pointed to the reasonable existence of God, this certainly opened up the possibility of the miraculous. If God did exist, He was the creator of everything we see in the universe. He, therefore, created matter from nonmatter, life from nonlife; He created all time and space. God’s creation of the universe would certainly be nothing short of … miraculous. If there was a God who could account for the beginning of the universe, lesser miracles (say, walking on water or healing the blind) might not even be all that impressive. If I was going to learn the truth about the existence of a miraculous God, I needed to at least lay down my presuppositions about the miraculous. My experience at crime scenes has helped me to do just that. This doesn’t mean that I now rush to supernatural explanations every time I fail to find an easy or quick natural explanation.

In ‘The Keepers,’ Harrowing Crimes Awaken Our Longing for Justice

I’m compelled to warn you that Netflix’s The Keepers is one of the more horrifying entries in this recent spate of true crime documentaries, both because of the nature of its subject matter, which concerns murder and sexual abuse, as well as its unflinching depiction of the long-term consequences suffered by the victims of these crimes. In many ways, however, it’s this stark depiction of profound injustice that makes The Keepers a valuable, albeit challenging, watch.
