If Anyone Loves Me He Will Keep My Word

Loving Jesus is not a matter of doing excellent things. It’s a matter of delighting in an excellent Savior.

Jesus Must Be Everything — Or Nothing

If God shows you his Son in his word, you cannot remain indifferent. If Jesus is anything to us, he will be everything.

Made In Heaven - Books

"This is a well-researched and beautifully written study showing the brilliant intricacy of God's design as revealed in nature. Look anywhere in creation and you will see vivid evidence of God's "invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature . . . clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made" (Romans 1:20). This book is also a graphic reminder that "there is nothing new under the sun" (Ecclesiastes 1:9), because even the cleverest, most innovative ideas of modern human ingenuity are actually features borrowed from the amazing work of God in creation."

You Know You Need to Slow Down. Here’s How

As someone who has been entrusted to lead music for worship gatherings, I have said my fair share of dumb things from the microphone over the years. Ever since I have made these practices a critical part of my day, I now find myself communicating and articulating my thoughts more clearly from the microphone. Christ always found time to break away from the noise to be alone with the Father. Christ was an excellent communicator. We must do the same in order to have equipped minds and hearts. To become more and more like Christ, we must be formed in His nature and follow His example.

Cold-Case Christianity: A Homicide Detective Investigates the Claims of the Gospels - Kindle edition by J. Warner Wallace, Lee Strobel. Religion & Spirituality Kindle eBooks @ Amazon.com.

“Cold-Case Christianity: A Homicide Detective Investigates the Claims of the Gospels” by J. Warner Wallace is an engaging and educational book that will help the believer in Christ to objectively examine Scripture to know what we believe and why we believe it. Not only will this help us to develop skills to share Christ eloquently with skeptics in a dying world, “Cold Case Christianity” will also strengthen your own faith as you seek out and learn truths about the foundation of the Christian faith. This book has helped to ignite a fire in me to know more about my faith and learn how to share it with others. I am more familiar with how to make a defense for the hope that I have and now prayerfully look forward to opportunities to share rather than being apprehensive about someone asking me a question I couldn’t answer. I still don’t have all the answers, but I know the Holy Spirit Who lives in me does and He will give me words to say when He presents the opportunities to share the Gospel. What this book has done is given me techniques to investigate and know my faith so well that I can appeal to the intellectual arguments the skeptics around me make.

Although faith is intellectual, it is not only intellectual

Faith is indeed intellectual; It involves an apprehension of certain things as facts; and vain is the modern effort to divorce faith from knowledge. But although faith is intellectual, it is not only intellectual. You cannot have faith without having knowledge; but you will not have faith if you only have knowledge

Kindle Deals in Christian Apologetics: This Week's Top Ten Best-Sellers!

We've all heard the rationale: "It doesn't matter what you believe as long as you're sincere." Or "All religions are pretty much the same." But are they the same? Does it matter which one you follow? In this insightful and compelling book, Michael Green invites readers into a relationship with Jesus Christ, the divine revelation and only pathway to the one true God.  In a conversational style geared toward nonbelievers, Green compares Christianity, Buddhism, Islam, and other religions to help spiritual seekers navigate the multi-faith maze. It offers scriptural references, looks at how divergent religious traditions view salvation and eternity, and answers difficult questions such as "What about people who have never heard of Jesus?" and "How should Christians regard other religions?" In the midst of our pluralistic and tolerant culture, here is an important and convincing argument for faith in Jesus-the only great teacher whose death and resurrection provided grace, forgiveness, and an eternity in the presence of God.   ORDER

What Do You Pray for ISIS?

In a world governed by the ancient ethic of “an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth,” it’s quite popular to repay “evil for evil” (Matthew 5:38–39; Romans 12:17). But living by the Christian ethic of “love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you” is simply otherworldly (Matthew 5:44). It demands that we be defined by heaven on earth. Living the Lord’s Prayer in the face of hostility and persecution might be the most dangerous thing we ever attempt.

Ratio Christi

Let’s use as an example two students: Megan is being taught in an integrative manner and Timothy is being taught Bible in isolation. Both love the Lord and are being raised in strong Christian families. As they get older, both students have their faith attacked by friends who tell them the world wasn’t created by the God of the Bible. Their concept of Creation is being challenged. Megan has been taught in an integrative manner so she has a robust faith. An attack on Creation is also an attack on the other subjects she’s learned that tie into Creation, such as Science, Math, Logic and Language Arts which are all woven into her faith. Timothy, on the other hand has been taught Bible in an isolated fashion so he has a very shallow and fragile faith. That attack on Creation might unravel his faith because his belief system is not really a system at all, but simply a stand-alone idea. Since he hasn’t been shown how the reality he is living intersects with his biblical beliefs, he can throw away his faith without losing anything else. But if Megan questions her faith, she has to throw out everything she believes in because it’s all tied together.

Absent Dad, Present Father

Don’t let fatherlessness keep you from searching out God as a Father, your Father. Though it has been hard, coming to know God as my Father has washed the raw wounds of my own fatherlessness. Those wounds never seem to fully dissolve. I still yearn for memories of running to greet my daddy after he comes home for work. Those memories never happened. And the memory of my father-daughter dance will also never happen.

I understand the inherent danger of police work.

I’m aware of no evidence that Yanez panicked because Castile was black. But whether he panicked because of race, simply because of the gun, or because of both, he still panicked, and he should have been held accountable. The jury’s verdict was a miscarriage of justice.

This Is How US Budget Cuts Could Affect Disabled Americans

While the specifics of how savings will happen is murky, the president’s budget director, Mick Mulvaney, has been critical of the program he sees as wasteful and an entitlement. He doesn’t consider the fact that you have to work to qualify for it unless you’re a disabled child with a parent who qualifies for Social Security as important. Data challenges his assertions that the program is being abused. Over 50 percent of applicants are denied, even more before going through an even more stringent appeal process according to a 2010 report on the Social Security Administration’s website computing numbers from 2000-2010. SSDI enrollment is down while enrollment in the retirement program of Social Security is increasing as more and more Baby Boomers retire.

Troubled Heart, Take Refuge in God

David tells us, “his eyes see, his eyelids test the children of man” (Psalm 11:4) and “the Lord is righteous; he loves righteous deeds; the upright shall behold his face” (Psalm 11:7). But according to Romans 3:23, none of us can stand before God’s righteous gaze. So, how can God grant us to “behold his face” (Psalm 11:7)? We keep reading in Romans 3 that we are “justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, whom God put forward as a propitiation by his blood, to be received by faith” (Romans 3:24–25). Our only hope in life and worship is that we have been redeemed.

The Success Affair

Ministry success is not the enemy. God may be moving, the church growing, the gospel being spread. How pastors deal with success is the real enemy. Jake was too immature spiritually, emotionally, and relationally to handle his newfound success. When he encountered situations that shook his confidence (as everyone does), he covered it up. When he began to cross boundaries to seek affirmation, he rationalized it. When he began the affair, he hid it. No one knew—his wife thought it was the church, the church thought he was great, and leadership was pleased with his performance.

US Prepares to Deport Hundreds of Iraqi Christians

“It’s entirely appropriate that an individual who is convicted of a crime face the appropriate penalty, such as a lengthy jail sentence,” said World Relief’s Tudi. “But if that has happened, there is no significant concern that the person remains a threat to others within the US. And the possibility of harm is so significant for a religious minority being deported to Iraq right now, these cases could be carefully assessed to consider if they are cases where mercy could be extended by the federal government as an exercise of discretion.”

Doesn't the Bible Say True Faith is Blind?

It shouldn’t surprise anyone that I am an evidentialist; after all, I’m a detective. This is what I have done for a living for the past 25 years. I think it’s in my blood. But I sometimes wonder if my evidentialist DNA is distorting what I read in Scripture. Am I restricting my interpretations based on an evidentialist presupposition? I have come to understand the Biblical definition of faith to be a reasoned trust in light of the evidence . Jesus told us to trust his claims in light of the miracles that confirmed his words evidentially (John 14:11), and he spent 40 days with the disciples after the resurrection, providing them with many convincing proofs that he was alive (Acts 1:2-3). I’ve written about this evidential view of faith and I see it supported repeatedly on the pages of the New Testament. But I occasionally get an email from a podcast listener questioning the evidential nature of Christian belief. Here’s a common example:

Why You Should Spend Some Time Writing This Weekend

Whether you are a natural writer, a good writer, an OK writer or a struggling writer, I believe writing and words can help you in this world. In fact, the Bible states, “The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit” (Proverbs 18:21). There is something powerful in processing through our day, our struggles and our successes and failures through communication and writing. As Christians, we have the power to encourage others, and even nonbelievers, in our writing. The question is: Are we encouraging them to turn their eyes to God’s truth in love? The power lies in our words.

In both instances, that which should be appreciated isn’t appreciated at all but is twisted into something unhealthy and dangerous.

Q & A with Dr. Craig: Is "Fine-Tuning" Question-Begging?

Moreover, the concept of fine tuning in the sense in which Christian apologists use it has the notion of an Aristotelian "final cause" built into it from the get-go. It's not simply about ascertaining value-neutral data or probabilities. This is easy to see if you consider that everything at all that occurs in the natural world is, on some background calculus, impossibly improbable. Every event is the product of a probabilistically fantastic train of previous events--an idea that informs, say, the "butterfly effect" in the Ray Bradbury story. To move from saying that "given the range of probabilities, a universe like ours is very unlikely" to "our universe is fine-tuned to be the way it is" involves a hidden or explicit value judgment about why our universe is something that some one (or thing) would or should desire in the first place. "Fine tuning" on the face of it is about probabilities relative to *specific desiderata*, whether or not these are made explicit. A radio is only fine tuned to the station I like to hear if it is, in fact, the one I want to hear. Otherwise, the radio just happens to have landed on whatever station it landed on, period.

True Greatness Is Given, Not Taken

What makes you great is not your ability to supply the demand of market forces in your social economy of public admiration. In fact, the more self-consciously you strive to achieve relative greatness, the less truly great you become. Your greatness comes as a gift from God. And paradoxically, you will realize more of your true value, and the true value of everything else, when you are less preoccupied with your own value and more preoccupied with God’s.

Did everything come from nothing?: Cosmology, Creation and a little Logic

…the fact that particles can pop in and out of existence, over time, as those fields rearrange themselves, is not a whit more mysterious than the fact that fists can pop in and out of existence, over time, as my fingers rearrange themselves. And none of these poppings — if you look at them aright — amount to anything even remotely in the neighborhood of a creation from nothing. Krauss, mind you, has heard this kind of talk before, and it makes him crazy. A century ago, it seems to him, nobody would have made so much as a peep about referring to a stretch of space without any material particles in it as “nothing.” And now that he and his colleagues think they have a way of showing how everything there is could imaginably have emerged from a stretch of space like that, the nut cases are moving the goal posts. He complains that “some philosophers and many theologians define and redefine ‘nothing’ as not being any of the versions of nothing that scientists currently describe,” and that “now, I am told by religious critics that I cannot refer to empty space as ‘nothing,’ but rather as a ‘quantum vacuum,’ to distinguish it from the philosopher’s or theologian’s idealized ‘nothing,’ ” and he does a good deal of railing about “the intellectual bankruptcy of much of theology and some of modern philosophy.

What Science Says About the Age of Accountability

In one of Bloom’s first studies, researchers acted out a scene for babies using manipulated physical shapes like puppets: A yellow square helped a circle up a hill; a red triangle pushed it down. After the show, the experimenter placed both the helper square and the hinderer triangle on a tray and brought it to the babies, ages 6 and 10 months, and found that infants overwhelmingly preferred the helper. Karen Wynn and Kiley Hamlin also found that infants prefer individuals who are nice to individuals who are mean.

League of Extraordinary Gentle Men: Where Do Good Dads Come From?

But an extraordinary few gentle men love their God and their families with supernatural sacrifice and resolve — men like Richard A. Segal, Jr. Of course, they don’t get the final credit. Miracles don’t brag about their ability or ingenuity. They can’t explain it, other than to point to the only God who makes true gentle men. They simply and joyfully say, “By the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace toward me was not in vain. On the contrary, I worked harder than any of them, though it was not I, but the grace of God that is with me” (1 Corinthians 15:10).

11 Portraits of Charleston Survivors' Grief and Grace

One year is nothing in the face of grief. Trauma can be inflicted in an instant, but it takes a lifetime—perhaps more—to be healed. The first debt owed to the survivors of the massacre at Mother Emanuel is to recognize the grief they still carry, and will carry for years to come. More deeply, to commemorate the one-year anniversary of Charleston requires seeing the ways that it simply re-inscribed the legacy of violence against Americans of African descent, a 300-year-old trauma that has not healed and oftentimes is not even acknowledged. The shootings in the basement of Mother Emanuel happened in an instant, but they recalled and perpetuated centuries of history—as, indeed, does the church itself, founded by African Americans and burned to the ground after Denmark Vesey’s slave revolt of 1822. To truly heal this most basic laceration in our body politic will likely take centuries more.

Doesn’t the Bible Tell Christians to Put Homosexuals to Death?

Now that is the kind of book the Bible is. It was written under God’s inspiration over a period of 1,500 years or so through various periods where God dealt with his people in different ways. Not everything that the Bible designed for God’s people Israel under the judges or under the kings or that God designs for Christians under the apostles in the New Testament is the same. Putting to death adulterers, putting to death homosexuals, putting to death the sons who curse their parents, all these penalties belonged to a particular season in the history of God’s dealings with his covenant people, and those dealings have changed dramatically with the coming of God’s Son Jesus Christ into the world. That is the basic nature of the Bible and of redemptive history that we need to get across to our critics.

Renewing Your Mind | Developing Theology | Jun 17, 2017

Protestants often times scoff at the hierarchical nature of the Roman Catholic Church, particularly the concept that a special class of saints wields greater influence over Jesus than others. Yet, before we point the finger too quickly, we should evaluate our own hearts and rid ourselves of our own proclivity to find ways to garner favor from our Lord Jesus that are not advocated in Scripture. As this lesson shows, it is not a long leap from well-meaning activity to self-promoting ritual, and history shows us that our Enemy finds no small amount of ways to prey on this human weakness.

Violent Words Have Turned to Violent Deeds: The Rise of the Radical Left | The Stream

It seems that a fair share of believers in this country are somewhat less than a huge threat to the kingdom of darkness . Nevertheless that hasn’t stopped the adversary from stirring up the hornets nest. Sure there has been a gradual discounting of Judeo-Christian values in our culture over the last so many years by those estranged from a biblical world view. However, the hostility & animosity displayed towards professing Christians by so called intelligent folk betrays it’s origins. Particularly since the advent of Trump on the presidential scene. Something must be happening in the realm of the unseen that is provoking such relatively increased discontent w/the faithful. It’s just not rational , reasonable or realistic to think these anti Christian sentiments are largely the result of the political divide that exists today. Not since the civil war has this nation been so challenged from w/in. Therein lies the problem. This polarization initiated largely from the left is not merely an idealogical one. It’s the unnatural commingling of spiritual darkness w/political, moral & ethical compromise.

About that New York Times Editorial

Was this attack evidence of how vicious American politics has become? Probably. In 2011, Jared Lee Loughner opened fire in a supermarket parking lot, grievously wounding Representative Gabby Giffords and killing six people, including a 9-year-old girl. At the time, we and others were sharply critical of the heated political rhetoric on the right. Before the shooting, Sarah Palin’s political action committee circulated a map that showed the targeted electoral districts of Ms. Giffords and 19 other Democrats under stylized cross hairs. But in that case no connection to the shooting was ever established.
