So when Paul said under divine inspiration 2Tim 2:24-26; he really meant mockery is OK? I did say, I have nothing against "blunt truth", I do see "blunt truth" used in the NT WITHOUT mockery. & The NT is very clear, not be quarrelsome, kind to all, patient, with gentleness.

Cold-Case Christianity for Kids - A Review

Cold-Case Christianity for Kids  can be a helpful book for jumpstarting spiritual conversations with your upper-elementary and Jr. High aged children. Even though my son has attended some of my apologetics presentations, he hadn’t asked me about the merits of inferring God’s existence from intelligent design until recently. The short mention it got in this book sparked a question in his mind which led to our first conversation on the issue.

If we seriously want men to marry and become fathers, let’s repeal no-fault divorce

In my conversations with men, no-fault divorce laws, and anti-male divorce courts are the main reasons given for why they do not pursue marriage and fatherhood. Men do not want to be coerced in a marriage with the threat of divorce by an unhappy wife. Men do not want to be subject to the government in so many areas of their lives if the wife does carry out the threat. They especially don’t want to be separated from their children. One my secular male friends told me that he would not marry unless the woman had evidence in her past of hating radical feminism and no-fault divorce. This was the main criteria. He actually was able to find a woman who was a men’s rights activist who hated divorce. But that was the only way he would marry.

The Biblical Case for Classical Apologetics (All the Objections)

Lastly, some define faith with reference to personal trust in God – “we walk by faith, not by sight” (2 Cor 5:7). Oftentimes, when life is difficult and it seems as if God is nowhere to be found, a Christian is called upon to persist in trusting God. Job exemplified this: “Though he slay me, I will hope in him” (Joh. 3:15). This is the same faith Jesus had while on the cross, when he felt forsaken by God (Mt. 27:46), and yet he still cried out in faith: “Father, into your hands I commit my spirit” (Lk. 23:46). Though he felt forsaken by God, he still put his trust in him. This highlights a key aspect of faith: it is the virtue of maintaining belief in what you know to be true, even when you don’t feel like it is. This is the primary definition highlighted by Greek dictionaries: “to consider [something] to be true and therefore worthy of one’s trust… to entrust oneself to an entity in complete confidence.”[2] Some have described faith as a leap into the dark. More accurately, faith is a leap into the light. It is a choice to continue living according to what you know to be true, even

How Your Faith Can Withstand Intellectual Assault

Living in a secular age means living with our faith being contested. We are surrounded by people who believe and act differently from us. Our faith feels intellectually vulnerable. We must not take for granted the faith handed down by our parents. In fact, statistics show that those who merely have a faith that is passed down to them end up losing it if they never come to accept the faith’s claims for themselves. We need to think critically about how our hearts and minds are being shaped by the world around us, not only intellectually but in what we believe is good and beautiful. This takes virtue and wisdom.

How to Deal with Annoying People

But there is a problem with that statement. Annoyance is not an attribute someone can possess; it’s a response we have. Kids aren’t annoying so much as adults get annoyed. Deep down inside, we know this, despite how we usually phrase our annoyance: “You’re so annoying,” or, “Those people are annoying me.” In truth, we ought to say, “I’m annoyed.” Annoyance is our response to circumstances we dislike.

10 Reasons Why You Should Trust the Bible

The field of archaeology demonstrates that the Bible is historically accurate. Now, this does not mean that it is inherently “true.” It does mean that it is reliable in its historical details—which gives some pretty good credibility to what else it has to say. If we can trust that the Bible accurately records for us geographical places (Israel, Egypt, Babylon, etc.) and historical people (Herod or Pontius Pilate, for example), it’s very likely it has many other true things to say. One reason I could never trust the Book of Mormon, in contrast, is that most of the places listed in its geography are make-believe. It’s very difficult for me to trust a book that is claiming to be nonfiction when its geography is clearly fiction.

How Do We Save Truth? Interview with Author Abdu Murray

ABDU MURRAY: Thanks for the opportunity to share about the book, Sean.  The title is meant to be a double-entendre.  In and of itself, truth doesn’t need saving but it does need to be saved in the sense that we’ve lost our emphasis on it as a culture.  We’re in a “post-truth” society, which elevates personal preferences and feelings over facts and truth.  We don’t deny that truth exists, we just subordinate it to our preferences.  We think that this will lead to freedom and human dignity and flourishing.  But it won’t.  It will lead to chaos because truth no longer serves as the standard by which to judge human preferences and opinions.  That’s why we’re seeing such vilification of “them.”  Whoever disagrees with our preferences is automatically a villain, even if the truth is on their side.  We need to recover our love of the truth and its primacy if we’re to escape the chaos that so laces our cultural climate.  When we see that truth is the lens through which we should shape and express our preferences, we’ll see the truth that we are made in God’s image and that Jesus redeemed that image at the cross.

Apologetics: Apologizing for Believing in God?

How to Get Men to Church. Guest Blog

More and more young people are leaving the church. Statistics show that once your children leave for college, they’re probably going to abandon their faith. Men, what are you going to do about that? Are you going to sit back and watch that happen, or are you going to fight for your children’s faith? Studying apologetics will give you the tools to inoculate your children against the false worldviews and beliefs they will certainly encounter in school and on social media.

More Information Found in DNA: The Shape Code | Evolution News

How specific is the shape information? The “bait” sequences demonstrated a “highly specific” binding of the components needed for Polycomb function. In Figure 6 of the open-access paper, the differences between “shape qualifying” and “non-qualifying” amounts of helical twist appear slight, as if a threshold of untwist is necessary to get MTF2 to bind. Flanking regions containing CGC sequences were required to untwist the helix; “Among top-scoring motifs, we identified TGCGCAAA as the most strongly enriched motif in both vertebrate species,” they say. So here, sections of DNA control the twist but not the RNA transcripts, with methylation of the bases also implicated in the effects. These are epigenetic sources of information, not genetic (sequence-based) codes.

32 How Do I Pray Without Ceasing?

And one last thing, maybe, it would be helpful to say. I think it is important to notice that, in real life, some discipline in regular times of prayer during the day keeps this kind of “without ceasing” prayer alive. I have heard enough people say that they want to pray spontaneously. They want to be always in a spirit of prayer. They don’t need set times of prayer. That is legalistic. I think that is ridiculous. I think it is unbiblical and it think it is unrealistic if they just knew themselves, because it is disciplined, regular times of prayer that fit us for the kind of spirit that enables us to enjoy the hour-by-hour, spontaneous walk with God.

All of church’s best leaders should move away. Here’s why.

Today’s pioneer missionaries must be among our best people. They must have the best understanding of theology and biblical studies. They must have the best cultural understanding and cross-cultural communication skills. The task of a pioneer missionary is not a fall-back option for those who can’t make it in the States. It requires the best skills. It requires more skill to minister effectively cross-culturally than in your own culture: you must understand Scripture for yourself in your own setting, and then you must understand how to communicate it and apply it in a setting not your own.

Depending on individual backgrounds, what is best for one person will be different for someone else.

Apologetics: An Alternative for the Next Generation

Nominal means in name only. Nominal Christianity then is an inauthentic faith that is only associated with Christianity in name only. Nominal Christianity is in attendance most Sunday mornings if it wakes up on time, or wasn’t out too late the night before. Nominal Christianity never deals seriously with sin, hasn’t opened the Bible in years, hasn’t shared the gospel, well, probably ever, and almost certainly would never be a part of any intimate fellowship with other believers. Its faith is privatized and kept at arms length.

42 More Than BFFs: When Friendship Goes Too Far

A friendship functioning as God intended is beautiful because it’s about making much of God, not one another. When clinging to Jesus is the goal, being openhanded with friends becomes less painful. Seeing others form new friendships doesn’t need to be scary anymore, because our security is found in Christ. A healthy friendship inflames our desires for God and promotes true dependency on God. As we find all we need in God, we are free to truly love our friends, not use them to meet our needs.

How Geographic Separation Affirms the Reliability of the New Testament | Cold Case Christianity

The geographic separation of these three early Church leaders was significant. By the end of the 1 st (and beginning of the 2 nd ) Century, Clement, Ignatius and Polycarp were leading the Church in separate regions of the Kingdom yet were united in their identification of the core letters and Gospels of the New Testament. Even at this early point in history, the New Testament books were already written and accepted as Scripture by the first disciples of the apostles. From just these three early disciples of the eyewitnesses, 20 of the 27 books of the New Testament were affirmed (Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, Acts, Romans, 1 Corinthians, 2 Corinthians, Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians, 1 Thessalonians, 2 Thessalonians, 1 Timothy, 2 Timothy, Titus, Philemon, 1 Peter and 1 John). This generation of believers likely accepted many more of the New Testament writings than they happened to mention in their own letters (no itemized canonical list survives until Irenaeus in the next generation). But, these select books, written by the eyewitnesses (and preserved by their disciples across geographic boundaries) eventually became the core of the New Testament we know today.

Design in Living Things Goes Far Beyond Machines | Evolution News

Seventeenth-century French philosopher René Descartes conceived of living things as complex machines, a concept now known as the “machine metaphor.” In 1998, Bruce Alberts (who was then president of the U.S. National Academy of Sciences) wrote that “the entire cell can be viewed as a factory that contains an elaborate network of interlocking assembly lines, each of which is composed of a set of large protein machines.” 1

45 You Kept Your Promises to Mom: Six Reasons We Love Faithful Fathers

What son is there whom his father does not discipline? If you are left without discipline, in which all have participated, then you are illegitimate children and not sons. Besides this, we have had earthly fathers who disciplined us and we respected them. Shall we not much more be subject to the Father of spirits and live? For they disciplined us for a short time as it seemed best to them, but he disciplines us for our good, that we may share his holiness. For the moment all discipline seems painful rather than pleasant, but later it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it. (Hebrews 12:7–11)

48 What Does It Mean for a Man to Lead His Family Spiritually?

What is the overall moral vision of the family? He should take initiative, asking that question and pursuing an answer with his wife at his side. What do we believe about God and the world and family and culture? All families stand for something. All families are known for something. All families are called to glorify God according to their gifts. What does that look like? And that is the man’s responsibility. Pursue that. Figure that out. A man feels responsibility to take initiatives to form and carry through that moral vision of the family and, of course, he is doing it through the constant interaction with his wife. She would not be thrilled to be left out of that formulation, but I think most Christian women are thrilled that the husband is taking the initiative and drawing her in to see to it that they have such a moral vision for the family.
