Answering Muslims: British Muslim Convert Thomas Evans Dies Fighting for al-Shabab in Kenya
There comes a point when we need to ask ourselves: "What's more important, the lives lost in the name of Islam or the feelings of those who defend it?" So far, politicians and the media are convinced that the feelings of Muslims are far more important than those killed in the name of Allah.
Thomas Evans before converting to Islam
BBC—The mother of a British man killed while fighting for Islamist militant group al-Shabab in Kenya has told the BBC her "whole world has fallen apart".
Sally Evans, from Buckinghamshire, said a journalist had phoned to tell them Muslim convert Thomas, 25, had died.
Her other son Michael said that when he looked on Twitter, the first thing he found was a picture of Thomas's body.
"We remember him as being my brother, your son," he told the BBC. "But to everyone else he's just a terrorist."
Kenyan officials have confirmed that Thomas Evans was killed on Sunday when al-Shabab fighters attacked a military base in the north of the country.
Thomas Evans after converting to Islam
Militants armed with AK47s and grenades raided the base in Lamu County, close to the Somali border, and then stormed a nearby village.
Eleven gunmen were killed in total and two Kenyan soldiers also died.
Evans, who had changed his name to Abdul Hakim, contacted his family in 2012 to say he had travelled to Somalia to join the militant group.
At least 50 British citizens are believed to have joined al-Shabab, an al-Qaeda affiliate based in Somalia, which has been behind a series of high-profile attacks in Kenya and Somalia.
Ms Evans, from Wooburn Green, said she would remember her son as "the little boy who had a bright future before he went down the path he went down".
She said he had met "some people with some very twisted, warped ideas of Islam" in the local area to begin with, and was later influenced by online material. (Continue Reading.)
Notice that even after her son dies fighting for Allah, Sally Evans defends Islam by claiming that her son's martyrdom was due to a "twisted, warped" idea of Islam. Of course, that "twisted, warped" view is exactly what we find in Islam's most trusted sources. Here's what Islam teaches about fighting unbelievers:
This Boy Was Born With No Limbs and Abandoned by His Mother -- But God Had the Perfect Plan for Him!
Despite being born with no arms and no legs, Gabe Adams believes he can do it all with a smile on his face. When he was baby, he was left at the hospital with no one to take him home. Once one family found out, they didn't think twice about letting him join their family.

The Danger of Seeking Your Dream Church
Wish-dreamers forget that the church is built on the gospel of the cross and that gospel is for people who really know themselves to be sinners. Wish-dreamers see themselves as having their act together because they . . . [fill in the blank] . . . and expect the church to follow suit. Wish-dreamers see themselves as sinners only in their creed, but not in reality. When we see ourselves as desperate sinners in need of the grace of Christ, it changes the way we look at others, what we expect of others, and what we want the church to be. Wish-dreamers are concerned about certain sins, but not others. They are great labelers of people. They are always looking for a church with better clay.

What’s Up with the Witch of Endor?
3. It is clear that the spirit of Samuel appears to the witch and speaks. There is no other way to understand the text in verses 15 and 16, which states that Samuel speaks. But there are other questions to ask. Why was the medium shocked when she saw the spirit of Samuel? Why did she not recognize him but have to wait for Saul’s confirmation of his identity? It seems as if this experience was different from her usual practice of divining departed spirits. Why? Perhaps the narrator is mocking her. In my judgment the reason has to do with the wider context of Samuel. This particular story is an example of God bringing up the dead from Sheol (Samuel) and bringing down the living to Sheol (Saul), exalting the humble and abasing the proud. In the Song of Hannah with which the first book of Samuel begins, Hannah sings about Yahweh’s power: “The LORD brings death and makes alive; he brings down to the grave and raises up” (1 Sam. 2:6). The second book of Samuel essentially begins with David’s lament f
Genetics and Bioethics: Enhancement or Therapy?
Bioethics is an expanding field with direct implications for our lives. Here, we’ll reflect on the possibility and implications of gene therapy and enhancement. While I was at the Evangelical Philosophical/Theological Society Conference in 2012, I had the pleasure of sitting in on a talk about this very topic, and that will be the focus of this post. Unfortunately, the speaker had been switched around and was not listed in the booklet that I have. Furthermore, I never caught the speaker’s actual name (I tried to write it down when he was introduced, and got Gary Alkins, though I have tried searching online for that and haven’t come up with it), so if someone knows what it is, please let me know. I’ll reference the speaker as “speaker” throughout this post.
If Rachel Dolezal Isn't Black, How Is Caitlyn Jenner A Woman?
How, exactly is what Dolezal did any different than what Jenner is currently doing? Rachel Dolezal is not black, and Caitlyn Jenner is not a woman (putting aside the basic biological facts of how sex-selection and chromosomes work, Jenner’s not even undergone the so-called sex change surgery; by all accounts, his equipment is still intact). Rachel Dolezal changing her wardrobe, her makeup, and her hair do not make her black. Pretty much everyone seems to agree on that, for obvious reasons. You don’t turn red into blue by magically declaring that red is now blue.

Eventually, they married. Elliot continued to give speeches about missions, marriage, and biblical gender roles. Gren managed book tables, arranged radio slots, and burned CDs. Gren says Elliot’s sane estimate of her own importance and capabilities allowed her to deal with the attention: “She looked at herself as an ordinary woman thrown into the limelight. … She never pushed herself forward.” He illustrates his point with a story: An overly excited young woman asked Elliot, “Who’s the real Elisabeth Elliot?” She replied, “I don’t know, and may God keep me from ever finding out.”
New Article Blasts Feds’ ‘Pseudoscientific Methods’ For Establishing Dietary Guidelines
This is a true story and I lived it. A few years back, HHS commissioned a study of a new program designed to help struggling families. Instead of hiring an objective outside evaluator, they hired the same people who designed the program to evaluate it. When data showed the program struggling, the "evaluator" insisted on changes so drastic that the program was no longer recognizable. Then they engaged in extensive "data cleaning," which is supposed to involve the removal of anomalous or suspect data, but in this case amounted to mass deletion of data showing that the program was having no effect. The program designer-evaluator was being paid hundreds hundreds of millions in taxpayer money. Five years later, the "evaluator" quietly issued a report showing virtually no difference between the program group who got the services, and the control group, who did not. Bottom line? Government will do ANYTHING to fake success, and will NEVER admit failure. And there are plenty of companies and universities out there who are glad to help them do it. NEVER believe ANYTHING the government says is validated by their research.

The Ones Who Are Left
But silent, swift, and implacable the Scythe has swept by, and he is gone, and we are left. We stand bewildered on the sidewalk, on the station platform. Yet, most strangely, that stunning snatching away has changed nothing very much. There is the sunlight lying in patches on the familiar carpet just as it did yesterday. The same dishes stand in the rack to be put away as usual, his razor and comb are on the shelf, his shoes in the closet (O the shoes! molded in the always recognizable shape of his feet). The mail comes, the phone rings, Wednesday gives way to Thursday and this week to next week, and you have to keep getting up in the morning (“Life must go on, I forget just why,” wrote Edna St. Vincent Millay) and combing your hair (for whom, now), eating breakfast (remember to get out only one egg now, not three), making the bed (who cares). You have to meet people who most fervently wish they could pass by on the other side so as not to have to think of something to say. You have to be understanding with their attempts to be understanding, and when they nervously try to steer you away from the one topic you want so desperately to talk about you have to allow yourself to be steered away—for their sakes.

Hot Girls Wanted
For a week or so after I saw Hot Girls Wanted , this year’s breakout Sundance documentary (executive produced by Rashida Jones), I found myself in a spiritual malaise. My Facebook feed is constantly filled with links to the daily outrages—political, social, and religious—that preoccupy my friends, so it’s not as if I need a ninety minute expose on Internet pornography to make me feel like the world around me is a darker, uglier place than the one I grew up in.

Gimmicks and God
I have a confession to make. In my former life as a Baptist youth evangelist, I did some things of which I am not now particularly proud. For example, on one occasion I dressed up like the devil and went to the local high school, where I told the students just arriving for class that day not to attend the youth revival at our local church. The gimmick worked, and the place was packed. Another time, I partnered with a “karate for Christ” champion and permitted him to slice a potato off my neck blindfolded. By the mercy of God, I survived to tell about it. Had anyone dared to question our hotgospel antics, we would have replied, quoting St. Paul in 1 Corinthians 9:22, that we were simply becoming “all things to all people that [we] might by all means save some.”
Let’s Be Honest: Reasons Why We Don’t Read Our Bibles
I would also add to this well thought out list (and I think the author touches on this in all points) that the reason many people, even Christians, don’t read the Bible is because they really don’t believe it is true. I mean this more in the “help my unbelief” sense. Same with prayer. If we truly believed that the Bible was the word of God, powerful and effective for teaching, reproving, training in righteousness, and trusting that the Holy Spirit is working in us as we read and pray, (and we desired those things) then we would do anything to make time to read it and to pray. We make time to eat and sleep because we a) feel the physical effects of it when we don’t and b) we believe and trust that eating and sleeping are good for our health and beneficial to us in many tangible and visible ways. The more time and energy we spend praying and reading the Word, the more obvious it is when we are not in the word. The more time spent praying and reading the Word, the clearer it becomes that we need it in order to be truly sustained, just like we know we need food water and sleep to be physically sustained.
Formed by War
While war is everywhere in human history, a clear sign that we live in a fallen world, only relatively recently have we begun to study the psychological trauma it can cause. Now, thanks to new research on combat trauma, veterans—and the church—are getting a better understanding of war’s assault on the human soul.
How to Date Well
I really don’t understand why people go out and marry, much less date, someone that they’re just not going to get along with. Yeah, yeah, opposites attract and all that, but what you have to understand is that marriage is like baseball—it’s hours of boredom pricked with moments of abrupt chaos. Most of the time, married people are going to work, cooking dinner, watching TV or sleeping. It’s pretty quiet.
Representing a Foreign Power Over Coffee
In 2 Corinthians 5:11–21, the apostle Paul is making a case for an ambassador’s motivation, how an ambassador views people, how an ambassador views the world. He also wants to make a case for how we as Christians see our role in the world. That’s what the image of ambassadorship is about. Paul says in verse 20, “We are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us.” He carefully chooses the image of ambassadorship to make sure we understand our role. Think about it: ambassadors exist to deliver a message. According to Paul, when you sit down for coffee, if a spiritual topic comes up and you begin to share with a friend about Jesus, you represent the foreign power of the kingdom of God. I think this is so mind-blowing that we often don’t believe it to be true.

This LEGO-Themed Wedding Cake Is a True Masterpiece
Nothing says “love” like a LEGO-themed wedding cake. This magnificent creation , from Cupcakes by SJ in London, uses colorful fondant and real minifigs to build a wedding cake inspired by the world’s greatest toy. The cake, which was shared on Facebook, was such a hit, that its maker has had to turn down some requests to replicate it: “ I am based in SE London & am afraid unable to deliver outside of this area. We are a family who love to bake and create cakes for family, friends & friends of friends. We do not have a shop or website or any other form of pictures other than those on this page, which was created at the request of friends purely to see what we'd been creating. While all requests are seriously considered, I had no idea one picture would create the reaction & influx that it has in the last 2 days and am sorry that many requests are not possible to fulfil. [sic] I thank each & every one of you from the bottom of my heart for your kind comments, likes & shares it is completely mind blowing & left my parents & I lost for words” ...
So, here's the idea... It's called A Bitter Theology. It combines a love of good beer, great conversations and Jesus Christ. The aim is to equip like-minded people with tools and resources to head through the beautiful doors of this country's many public houses to a ripe and ready mission field. At least, that's the plan. Fancy coming along? Along the way we will taste good beer, tell great stories and debate some of life's big questions. There's just one aim: That Christ be glorified in each and every pub on this dear little island we call home. Join us on the journey. SOLI DEO GLORIA
Finding Joy Amid Cancer
But the most important gift we can give someone is the gift of our presence. And when we show up, to remember Job’s friends. For the first seven days after Job’s calamity, his friends came around and they didn’t say a word, they did “shiva,” a wonderful Jewish practice. It wasn’t until they opened their mouths that they got in trouble. We need to be slow to speak and quick to listen. We need to recognize that the person going through cancer or some type of adversity is not looking for a quote or a bible verse or cliche. What they’re looking for is for you to be with them, and to be for them, and to love them and to laugh with them.
Being the body Several local churches participate in One by One, a ministry that partners with the Morning Center to provide mentoring for expectant moms. Thorough training is provided to mentors who then turn to help expectant moms develop spiritually while gaining practical understanding about motherhood and everyday life. The mentorship lasts through the first year of the baby’s life. “The goal is to help the mother become self-sufficient,” explained Vickie West, Volunteer Ministry Coordinator at Leawood Baptist Church. “The One by One Ministry is mentoring 79 women in the Memphis area and it’s growing.”
Manvotional: Facing the Mistakes of Life
There are only two classes of people who never make mistakes—they are the dead and the unborn. Mistakes are the inevitable accompaniment of the greatest gift given to man—individual freedom of action. If he were only a pawn in the fingers of Omnipotence, with no self-moving power, man would never make a mistake, but his very immunity would degrade him to the ranks of the lower animals and the plants. An oyster never makes a mistake—it has not the mind that would permit it to forsake an instinct.

What is the Purpose of Sex? - Cross Examined - Christian Apologetic Ministry | Frank Turek | Christian Apologetics | Christian Apologetics Speakers
I would suggest that food analogy is flawed because it presumes only two possible options, nutrition or poison. This is a illogical. It is certainly possible to consume something which is tasty yet likes nutritious value. In fact some would argue that the majority of that which is consumed by mouth in the United States is just that. Without that false dichotomy the analogy quickly falls apart. In like manner, unless one first demonstrate that ANY sexual act which does not serve the purpose of procreation (the matter of bonding was addressed in the first reply to this post, in that sex serves to bond same sex couple as well as opposite sex couples) is in every instance harmful before the argument behind the analogy can be made.
Help My Unbelief
Barnabas Piper, son of John, deals in his new book Help My Unbelief: Why Doubt Is Not the Enemy of Faith with the relation of faith and doubt, a tension that has troubled many Christians, indeed many Christian writers, young and old. His title comes from Mark 9:24, where the father of a demon-possessed child says to Jesus “I believe; help my unbelief.” The paradox here does not prevent Jesus from healing the boy. Jesus acknowledges the father’s faith as true faith, a sufficient response to his teaching in the preceding context (verse 23) that “all things are possible for one who believes.” In this passage, Piper’s subtitle is true: doubt is not the enemy of faith. But there are other Bible passages that view doubt more negatively (e.g., Matt. 14:31; 21:21; 28:17; Rom. 14:23; Jas. 1:6). So it becomes important to explore the relationship between faith and doubt more deeply, exploring also distinctions between different kinds of “faith” and different kinds of “doubt.”
Each category, Collin observes, has distinctive weaknesses as well as distinctive strengths. Christians of each variety need to listen to and learn from fellow believers whose emphases are different from their own. But above all—this theme is repeated again and again throughout the book—all Christians need to "shine light on our blind spots and measure ourselves against Jesus." This doesn't mean that, as believers, we'll always agree on what following Jesus entails. "We often seize on one aspect of his character and brandish it as weapon against other believers," Collin writes. "And we rope our partial Jesus into some of the nastiest conflicts."
Are All Sins Really the Same?
The important thing is that all sins are the same to God! In the Old Covenant, God made an agreement between Himself and people when he said "Keep My commandments", referring to the 10 commandments. If they couldn't keep them, they were to sacrifice an unblemished animal at the Feast of Atonement to cover their sins. This showed their love, or belief, in God and gave them salvation in the Old Testament (i.e., living in heaven with God after death). There was no difference between lying, adultery or murder from God's perspective. If you sin, it can keep you from living with Him after we die. Unfortunately, because they broke the commandments every year, they had to return to sacrifice an unblemished animal annually. In the New Covenant, God makes the same agreement of not breaking the 10 commandments. However, this time it is not with people, but with Jesus. Jesus keeps the 10 commandments right up to His death on the cross. He becomes our sacrificial unblemished animal where belief in Him will provide salvation for us (i.e., living with God after death). So, it's appointed for man to die once and face judgment.
3 Misconceptions about Human Trafficking We Need to Change
Human trafficking is one of the worst of these dark issues, because it consists of so many crimes wrapped into one—sometimes kidnapping, almost always rape, along with confinement, torture and coercion. We’ve met survivors whose victimization started as young as 12—one girl was forced to service men in the back seats of cars in parking garages. For four years, she had lived every moment under the watchful eye of a pimp, and she'd only been out of the industry for a year when we met her. Her care worker told us she was finally learning she could go to the bathroom without asking for permission. The invisible chains are often the hardest to shed.
When we don't perceive a problem to be present to be in our neighborhood, it's easy to ignore. And sometimes, we choose ignorance on purpose, shielding ourselves from the realities of complex, dark stories.

Planet earth is a wondrous place.

Jones says that in fact the raccoon was not “hitching a ride across the river” and the alligator quickly went underwater to ditch the critter, which was startled out of the brush by the hikers. But we have eyes, Mr. Jones. We know a picture of a raccoon riding an alligator when we see one. Nothing can ruin this moment of natural beauty ...

The Prayer of the Five Widows
When Christianity Today inquired about the burden in the hearts of the five widows of the Auca ambush in Ecuador (January 23, 1956), their reply suggested that this article might appear anonymously, since it mirrors the mood of all five women. Their scribe, however, was Elisabeth Howard Elliot. Graduated from Wheaton College (48) with a Greek major, she studied Spanish in Ecuador and, with a view to Scripture translation, studied the Colorado and Quichua languages in the west and east jungles there. In 1953 she married missionary-martyr Jim Elliot. Today at Shandia, on the headwaters of the Napo River, one of the main tributaries of the Amazon, where the only communication with the outside world is by radio and airplane, she works alone in Bible translation, literacy work among women, teaching and medical work at a government accredited school for boys. Marjorie Saint is now serving in Quito as hostess of the guest house for HCJB (The Voice of the Andes). Barbara Youderian continues to serve in the Ecuadorean jungles, at the outstation of Cangaime among the Jivaro headhunters. Olive Fleming plans to return to the United States to serve in the office of The Fields, a religious publication.
