A German Man Cut His Ex’s Stuff in Half, Then Posted His Halves to eBay

A man in Germany didn’t take his recent breakup what you call well. Instead, he cut the couple's shared stuff in two—including a car—and then posted his halves to eBay, reports news.com.au. The caption on the video (because of course he made a video) says “Thank you for 12 ‘beautiful’ years Laura !!!!! you’ve really earned half.” Check it out.

Pew Stats on Pope Persuading Evangelicals on Environment Encyclical

An analysis of Pew's data suggests that only half of Francis's fans among white evangelicals agree with him that global warming is occuring and is a serious problem, and only one-third agree that it is caused by humans. And among evangelicals who view Francis as a "change for the better," about 60 percent agree with him on the seriousness of global warming yet only 37 percent agree it is manmade.

When the Wages of Sin Is a Grandbaby

We’re so proud of her. She could have ended her public shame so easily. We’d never have known we are grandparents. But she’s fighting for more than herself now. She’s fighting to believe that Jesus is sufficient for her as a mama and for the baby she already loves. She’s now on the journey we’ve been on as parents, to believe that Christ has bought not only our lives but also our adoption. In doing so, we have greater sight today that Jesus really is our only hope. And we stand in testimony to our daughter that he is hope enough when your kids are little—and when they have little ones on the way. We can trust he is sufficient both for the day of triumph and for the day of great sin.

Encountering Prosperity Theology in Latin America

Some countries, like Guatemala, Puerto Rico, and Colombia, are experiencing an interesting phenomenon. The presence of and trend toward megachurches has led some smaller churches to be converted into “franchises” of larger ones. Many of the poorly-trained pastors leading the smaller congregations may not be in full agreement with what the big corporation teaches, but they’re glad to be economically supported and to become part of their numerical/financial success. In all likelihood, those claiming to be “apostles” at the top of the chain will never visit the small franchises (and because of the peculiarities of the Third World, livestreaming is not a common practice). But they tell the pastors what to preach, train them in their teaching institutions, and change the brand of the smaller church to make it a “daughter” of the big one. This has also helped to propagate false teaching.

Which Way, Evangelicals? There is Nowhere to Hide

The reality is that it cannot. This is a moment of decision, and every evangelical believer, congregation, denomination, and institution will have to answer. There will be no place to hide. The forces driving this revolution in morality will not allow evasion or equivocation. Every pastor, every church, and every Christian organization will soon be forced to declare an allegiance to the Scriptures and to the Bible’s teachings on marriage and sexual morality, or to affirm loyalty to the sexual revolution. That revolution did not start with same-sex marriage, and it will not end there. But marriage is the most urgent issue of the day, and the moment of decision has arrived.

The Gospel According to Pixar

Notice the author doesn’t say to pretend your suffering doesn’t exist. He points out that for every emotion, there’s a call to effectively deal with that emotion. Going further, there are examples of God actually using sadness to enrich our lives, like in I Peter 5:10, where Paul says, “And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to His eternal glory in Christ, will Himself restore, confirm, strengthen and establish you.”

Standing With Charleston: Solidarity in the Church

I agree in the most part, in terms of seeing one another as humans first. But I think that there should be more emphasis for change within the church psyche. I think this piece seriously tip toed around what one of our greatest flaws is as the church, something that we need to talk openly about. What we need to deconstruct is eurocentricity, and the normalised ideals that have come from that. We don't have to forget or leave behind our smaller identities, and in fact they are not so small to some - for some, they are actually crucial for how God speaks to us. If we then say "no, forget your smaller identity for our greater one as human beings of the church" it has the effect of limiting the ways we hear from God and trying to fit them in to the way that the "church culture" hears from God. And anyone who knows anything about sociology will know that what happens is the minority culture just gets swallowed by the dominant culture; its part of our fallen human nature. So what we're really saying when we encourage people not to be defined by their "smaller" culture is "leave your culture behind, come and join the one of the church which has been developed and shaped around Western ideals.

http://utmost.org/the-service-of-passionate-devotion/

Today we have substituted doctrinal belief for personal belief, and that is why so many people are devoted to causes and so few are devoted to Jesus Christ. People do not really want to be devoted to Jesus, but only to the cause He started. Jesus Christ is deeply offensive to the educated minds of today, to those who only want Him to be their Friend, and who are unwilling to accept Him in any other way. Our Lord’s primary obedience was to the will of His Father, not to the needs of people— the saving of people was the natural outcome of His obedience to the Father. If I am devoted solely to the cause of humanity, I will soon be exhausted and come to the point where my love will waver and stumble. But if I love Jesus Christ personally and passionately, I can serve humanity, even though people may treat me like a “doormat.” The secret of a disciple’s life is devotion to Jesus Christ, and the characteristic of that life is its seeming insignificance and its meekness. Yet it is like a grain of wheat that “falls into the ground and dies”— it will spring up and change the entire landscape ( John 12:24 ).

Stephen Hawking and Leonard Mlodinow’s Inadvertent Proof for God

No offense, but your God says he made you in his own image. A mammal that thinks very highly of itself, constantly sins, and thinks it UNDERSTANDS things like these topics. we all know ourselves and know that we aren't as complicated as all of everything. And what are humans other than incredibly confused, angry, and scared cyclical patterns. Simply observe any human or yourself and you will see that we work in circles. It's in your life, it's in therapy, it's in the bible. Endless circles. I think these scientists have used mathematical FACTS to try and best guess the reality behind what NOBODY knows. I would argue this is a fine theory in that -- like the rest OF EVERYTHING -- it too works cyclically and gives ACTUAL proof of how something like pi (remember the original finder of pi was put to death by the religious fear of the idea of infinity by humans who have done this in circles again and again and... yet again) can exist and NOT BE GOD. Praying and meditation is a healthy practice that should be undertaken by all. That being said it is simply a state of relief our brain requires to act more civilly towards one another.

Our Culture of Reading and the End of Dialogue: An Essay

Yet lingering in our reading actually forestalls doubt by reframing our desires away from the momentary experience of uncertainty toward the permanent good of understanding. Reading as I’ve described above is simply one form that inquiry takes: it is not something separate from questioning, but itself is a part of it. Anyone can ask a question: children are more adept at the practice than many adults, often to their parents’ chagrin. But to experience the fundamental form of questioning goes much deeper and demands much more from us. Questioning is aimed not at information to nullify or quench our desires, but at an understanding that will deepen them. Questioning is a form of life that involves a searching, a seeking out, a hunt for an unknown good. And when the understanding comes upon us, it creates a sense of wonder and awe that only deepens our desires and renews our searching. Doubt is a kind of negation, an unwillingness to accept what is before us. But questioning is a way of entering into it, searching it out, and working to understand it.

How to get things done in seminary: The 5 keys to productive scholarship

In my first year as a student at Southern Seminary, I took 48 credit hours in nine months: six classes in the fall semester, one class over J-term, six more classes in the spring semester, and three more in the month of June. (I would have taken even more if I could have, but that was the limit!)

The Replacements

Maybe you could say that it was a silly teenage dream, but I don’t think so. In fact, as I’ve counseled young people, old people, and everyone in between, I’ve realized just how many of us have our identity wrapped up in something other than the Creator. And because the creation was never designed to carry the weight of defining us, at some point, our misplaced identity dreams will crumble.

Charleston Church Attack the Deadliest in Decades

“Particularly during the 20th century, burning black churches was a way to try to intimidate blacks seeking increased political or economic power since the churches so often functioned as the hub of civil rights organizing,” said Cooper. “The bombing of 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama in 1963, and the subsequent death of four little girls who were there for Sunday school, shocked the nation with the violent lengths to which racists would go to disrupt and destroy black churches, and by extension, black communities.”

Gilbert looks forward to the opportunity to review its own regulations to make necessary changes consistent with the Supreme Court’s decision and welcomes the opportunity for dialogue concerning the future of signage in the public’s right of way, including state mandated political signage.

Christian Apologetics - What Is Christian Apologetics?

Christian apologetics represents the serious and sustained engagement with ‘ultimate questions’ raised by a culture, people group, or individual aiming to show how the Christian faith is able to provide meaningful answers to such questions. Where is God in the suffering of the world? Is faith in God reasonable? Apologetics clears the ground for evangelism, just as John the Baptist prepared the way for the coming of Jesus of Nazareth. …Evangelism…issues a personal invitation: ‘You are invited to the feast! Please come!’ Apologetics lays the ground for this invitation; evangelism extends it. Both are an essential part of the mission of the church

What I’ve Learned After One Year of Preaching God’s Word

So I find it rather surprising that a year of preaching through Ephesians has taught me not that I overestimate the church, but that I’ve underestimated it. The Almighty showed me how weak my understanding was. Before, my understanding of church membership largely came from texts like Matthew 18, 1 Corinthians 5, and 2 Corinthians 2. It was largely a logical implication of discipline. Now, my understanding of church membership begins with the vast plan of God to create and redeem a people for himself from before the foundation of the world (Eph 1) who, being reconciled to God, are now reconciled to one another (Eph 2), to display the wisdom of God in the heavenly places (Eph 3) by living and growing together in unity (Eph 4), displaying an ethic of sacrificial love modeled after Christ himself and guided by the Spirit (Eph 5) as they wage war against the devil and persevere unto the end through prayer (Eph 6).

An Evangelical’s Guide to ‘Laudato Si’, Pope Francis’s Encyclical on the Environment

Because the document was written by a global religious leader and addressed not only for the billion Catholics on Earth but for “every person living on the planet,” the evangelical community has a duty to consider his words and respond appropriately. Much of it we will agree with and much will cause us to cringe. But because of its importance, both as a current object of debate and as future historical document, we should be aware of what is in this encyclical.

The Atheist Who Didn't Exist: Or: the Dreadful Consequences of Bad Arguments (Paperback)

"This is a remarkable and timely book. Apologetics has to mature and evolve into the 21st century and this intelligent, funny and elegant work is precisely what we are looking for." -- Michael Coren, broadcaster, author and journalist "Andy Bannister's book is a breath, a gust, a positive whoosh of fresh air. Made me laugh, made me think, made me cry. The words bounce across the page. A sane Christian! Whatever next?" -- Adrian Plass "Every atheist vs. believer debate I've been to has made me want to gouge out my eyes with a spoon. Bannister's book, however, is exactly what this sceptical believer needed." -- Drew Marshall, radio host "In a brilliant work that is as humorous as it is damaging to atheist arguments, Bannister demonstrates the consequences of implementing new atheist arguments into real life (that is, out of the realm of stuffy office speculations). His work is a wild ride that takes the reader from stories to theory to end game. Writing with eloquence and imagination, he illustrates the supposed 'safe ground' of new atheist thought as truly no ground at all.

"It doesn't take a rocket scientist to recognize that our entire culture is in trouble.  We are staring down the barrel of a loaded gun, and we can no longer afford to act like it's loaded with blanks.  The guidance counselor at a public high school near my home confessed to a parents' group that the teenagers who have attended the school during the last ten years are the most dysfunctional, illiterate group he has witnessed in close to forty years at the same school.  Our society has replaced heroes with celebrities, the quest for a well-informed character with the search for flat abs, substance and depth with image and personality.  In the political process, the makeup man is more important than the speech writer, and we approach the voting booth, no on the basis of a well-developed philosophy of what the state should be, but with a heart full of images, emotions, and slogans all packed into thirty-second sound bites.  The mind-numbing, irrational tripe that fills TV talk shows is digested by millions of bored, lonely Americans hungry for that sort of stuff.

A Guide to Church Revitalization

church willingly submits to the authority of Christ, there is no confusion about where the final word lies. Once during a deacons’ meeting, I had to confront a deacon about non-attendance at church. When he pointedly asked me where in the Bible it says we have to be at church, I replied: “Hebrews 10:25, ‘Not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some.’” That ended the discussion. Only a church’s commitment to the authority of Christ has the power to do that.

Dylann Roof and the Danger of Identity Idolatry

But God does not. And his Word speaks to the terrors of identity idolatry. It speaks to how we demonize the opposite of what we idolize; we devalue the opposite of what we treasure; we hate the opposite of what we love. And Dylann Roof—the Charleston gunman, the domestic terrorist—ultimately loved his ethnicity. He rang out with the worst manifestation of his hatred: he took the lives of those who were the opposite of white, yet who bore the same image he did. Again, our words, so feeble, and our experiences, so limited, can hardly speak to this. But we don’t need our words or experiences to engage this because we have the Word of God.

Ligonier Ministries

In our age, as in every other age, there are those who deny the existence of God. Recent years have witnessed the rise of a particularly militant form of atheism, represented in the writings of authors such as Richard Dawkins, Sam Harris, Christopher Hitchens, and Daniel Dennett. Although the “new atheism” is not all that different from the old atheism, Christians today must stand firm against the challenge of atheism.

What Do You Value?

If you were to walk into my home on any given day you would start picking up on some clues about what makes my family tick.   Whether it’s the tennis rackets or gym bags indicating a value of fitness, or the stacks of books on shelves throughout the house suggesting a hunger for growth and knowledge, or the bowl of fruit on the counter representing our preference for healthy eating, our family values begin to surface pretty quickly.  Values are funny things because they exist whether they are defined in writing or not.  They are simply the things that individuals and/or groups of people begin to define themselves by.  Within a short time of being in someone’s home or hanging out at an office, you quickly know the values of that environment. In turn, I think leaders lead from certain values that they esteem most.  I thought I would share mine with you, and I would love to hear what values you, well… value . Accountability – it’s critical for strong teams; be accountable up, down and throughout the organization and you’ll succeed Communication – or as I like to say “use your blinker”; communication is a powerhouse; when you give it, you usually receive it in return; the most powerful teams communicate well Development (of yourself & others) - good leaders are constantly looking for ways to grow themselves and their teams; great leaders are relentless about developing the people they lead and creating ways to further their growth Generosity - give, love, empower; don’t hold back; believe the best in others; live generously Responsibility – “to whom much is given, much is required”; don’t take for granted what you’ve been blessed with; take responsibility for the blessing of influence Now, let me clarify … I am not actually good at most of these.

Ligonier Ministries

In the Olivet Discourse, Jesus speaks of future punishment in the parables of the slaves (24:45–51), bridesmaids (25:1– 13), talents (25:14–30), and the section on the sheep and goats (25:31–46). Several truths about hell emerge. Hell is punishment for disobedience to the master. Hell is graphically expressed as a location where people are cut into pieces and placed with the hypocrites (24:51) and as a place of suffering (24:51; 25:30). Jesus also likens hell to being outside, or a place of exclusion/separation (25:10–12, 30), as the outer darkness (v. 30), as personal banishment from His presence and the kingdom (“Depart from me,” v. 41), and as just condemnation/punishment (vv. 41, 46). Hell is then described as eternal. It is a place of “eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels” (v. 41) and of “eternal punishment” (v. 46).
