"180" - Video

The reception and inclusion of endorsements for "180" does not imply Living Waters' agreement with the theological or political views of the individuals or organizations listed, nor indicate a partnership with them or endorsement of them. The same holds true for any individual or organization choosing to promote "180" through various means. Living Waters' aim is to maximize the viewership of "180" for the furtherance of the gospel and the protection of the unborn. That is the criterion used for all matters relevant to endorsement and promotion of "180."

Why Were Early Christians So Brave?

The intention of the following blog is to offer support for Christians who encounter people who believe Jesus is merely a myth, perpetuated by the early Church. One such mythicist is Dr. Richard Carrier. I have had a number of delightful interactions with Carrier on Twitter, which alerted me to his thoughts on Christianity, Jesus, and the Bible. He is an historian with a Ph.D. from Columbia University who has written numerous books and blog posts refuting the existence of Jesus.

Objections to Apologetics: it's arguing and debating

For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.

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).

The Philando Castile Verdict Was a Miscarriage of Justice

I understand the inherent danger of police work. I also understand the legal responsibilities of men and women who volunteer to put on that uniform, and the legal rights of the citizens they’ve sworn to protect and serve. 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.

The Christian Faith Is An Evidential Faith | Cold Case Christianity

The Christian life is a rational and reasonable life that is rooted and grounded in the evidence of the Resurrection and the truth of the Bible. Christians are saved by placing their trust in Jesus, but Christians become a powerful force in their world when they commit themselves to being “case makers” for what they believe. Christians can be “case makers” precisely because the Christian faith is an evidential faith. When we, as Christians, argue for the truth of the Christian Worldview, we are not sharing an opinion. There either is a God, or there is not. Jesus is that God, or He is not. Salvation comes through Christ alone (as Jesus Himself maintained), or it does not. This is not a matter of opinion, personal preference or wishful thinking. The Christian faith is grounded in evidence that can be assessed and evaluated. The Christian faith is an evidential faith.

4 Pieces of Wisdom from a Street Level Apologist

One reason I believe in Christianity is because it speaks of reality closer than any other worldview. This isn’t the only or even the main reason but it is one of the reasons. Even if Christianity is not true (I do not doubt Christianity) I am convinced that atheism is wholly false. That is because atheism contradict the real world at every turn. I try to point this out to skeptics all the time and I’ve learned a lot about how to deal with people. Here are four observations I’ve made about our culture.

When Making a Case for Christianity is Futile | Cold Case Christianity

If you’re wondering why your reasonable and rational efforts to describe the truth to your friends and family seem to be falling on deaf ears, it just may be that you’re coming at it from the wrong angle, given the nature of the objections your friends and family may hold. There are times when we ought to be addressing emotional or volitional objections people may have. By the way, Juror Number 9 was not a problem for us, but in the post-verdict interviews with the jury I spent time mining out the nature of her hesitation and discovered that her past did present some emotional barriers. Luckily, she was able to move through those barriers on the way to the truth.

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

Product Description Cultural pressure is increasing, especially on our kids. But even in a world of addictions, ever-present screens, and gender-identity questions, youth can have clarity and confidence. We must help them attain it. In this honest and practical guide for parents and Christian leaders, John Stonestreet and Brett Kunkle will enable you to help your kids influence the culture, rather than let the culture change them. We don’t have to lose the next generation to culture. In this practical guide, John Stonestreet and Brett Kunkle explore questions including: What unseen undercurrents are shaping twenty-first-century youth culture? Why do so many kids struggle with identity? How do we talk to kids about same-sex marriage and transgenderism? How can leaders steer kids away from substance abuse and other addictions? How can we ground students in the biblical story and empower them to change the world? With biblical clarity, this is the practical go-to manual to equip kids to rise above the culture.

How Can I Better Study a Bible Passage?

We love to get questions on basic Bible interpretation, so please keep sending them in to us. Today’s question is from Deborah from Kalamazoo, Michigan: “Hello Pastor John, I’ve heard you talk about arcing. Can you explain to me the very basics of what arcing does, and what we can learn from the practice? This is my introduction to it, so the simpler the better. And if you have one simple example to explain it all, that would be great.”

Francis Schaeffer: Everything fits

The strength of the Christian system — the acid test of it — is that everything fits under the apex of the existent, infinite-personal God, and it is the only system in the world where this is true. No other system has an apex under which everything fits.That is why I am a Christian and no longer an agnostic. In all the other systems, something 'sticks out,' something cannot be included; and it has to be mutilated or ignored. But without losing his own integrity, the Christian can see everything fitting into place beneath the Christian apex of the existence of the infinite-personal God who is there.

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.

The Uniqueness of University Evangelism

There’s one last reason why we should make university evangelism a high priority. Today there are enormous numbers of international students flocking to receive Western educations. One reason we should reach out to them has already been noted. Away from their home cultures and communities, they’re far more accessible and open to considering the claims of Christianity than they’ve ever been before or, possibly, will be again. Indeed, many students who opt for a Western education have every intention of weighing worldview options and other religions.

I had no idea what it meant to have a Christian worldview

When I left home with 600+ hours of church tucked safely under my belt, I truly didn’t know what to do with my faith, other than continue to wear the Christian label and bide my time as a good person until I was zapped up to heaven someday. Those hundreds of hours hadn’t taught me what it means to actually see all of life differently than someone who didn’t believe in Jesus; I had no idea what it meant to have a Christian worldview.

Turning the World Upside Down, Down Under

What is more, Australia has never had a glorious Christian heritage. Except perhaps for Billy Graham’s 1959 visit, which did lead to a temporary spike in church affiliation, the country has no great tradition of revival. It helps to remember that Australia was originally founded as a British penal colony, not settled by English Puritans or French Huguenots looking for religious liberty.

The Harm of ‘Believing in Yourself’

The serpent tempts Adam and Eve with the very same thing that got him booted out of heaven, telling them in essence, “You can and will be like God. There is no reason to trust God any longer because you can be like God yourself.” This was the great temptation in the Garden of Eden. It was more than taking a bite of fruit. It was mankind wanting to be God, listening to the serpent over their Creator and “believing in themselves” more than trusting God’s direction.

The Joy of the Lord Is Your Strength

The text on this point is a familiar one, but one we don’t stop to think about more carefully. “The joy of the Lord is your strength” (Nehemiah 8:10). Whether the “joy of the Lord” here refers mainly to the joy he has in himself, or to the joy he gives us, we have no real hope of joy or strength unless God is happy (John 15:11).

You can focus on succeeding at your health goals one day at a time. In other words, what will you eat today, and then focus on making it through the day. How will you exercise today, and then meet your goal for the day.

The False Equation of Atheism and Intellectual Sophistication

To see what this attitude looks like in practice, it’s helpful to check out a new book, The Age of Atheists , by the British historian Peter Watson. The book interprets Friedrich Nietzsche’s famous 1882 declaration “God is dead” as a turning point in intellectual history: These words were a call to action for all the artists, writers, philosophers, and poets who tried to understand the world thereafter. Over the course of 626 pages, readers are taken on a whirlwind tour through the last 13 decades of European and American thought, touching on figures from Martha Graham and Piet Mondrian to William James and Jürgen Habermas. Watson’s version of Western intellectual history isn’t framed around economics or politics or the dialectics of power, which is a pretty radical move in a field filled with Marxists and Foucaultians and closeted Hegelians. Instead, he narrates history to answer one of the most basic questions of human existence: What’s out there, besides us? Is there such a thing as “God”?

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.

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.

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.”

How Does Growing Apostasy Prove That Christians Are Getting Closer to the Truth? | The Stream

No new textual, archeological, sociological, anthropological, or philological discoveries have been made in the last fifty years that would cause us to read any of these biblical texts differently. Put another way, it is not that we have gained some new insights into what the biblical text means based on the study of the Hebrew and Greek texts. Instead, people’s interaction with the LGBT community has caused them to understand the biblical text differently.

Doesn’t the Bible Say True Faith is Blind? | Cold Case Christianity

Over and over again the Old Testament saints, when questioning God’s goodness, provision or protection, were encouraged by a leader or prophet to remember what God did for them in Egypt. God’s rescue efforts in Egypt were provided as a piece of evidence, demonstrating that He was capable of rescuing His children again. God has given us visible assurance that he exists, and the writer of Hebrews is simply asking us to trust this assurance when God and his mercies seem like they are “things not seen”. Even the writer of Hebrews understood the conviction and assurance that resulted from evidence: the evidence of God’s Old Testament activities and the evidence of Jesus’ New Testament miracles.

How Not to Argue About Which Bible Translation Is Best

A story from linguist and New Testament scholar Moisés Silva illustrates this principle. Silva’s mother tongue is Spanish, and when he was a student, one of his professors asked him whether he’d translate a Spanish theological article into English for him. Silva thought that he could do this quickly without a problem, but it ended up being a nightmare. He hadn’t translated much written material from Spanish to English before, and he quickly realized that an English translation simply can’t convey all the connotations of the Spanish original.

Help Your Kids Hope in God

It doesn’t have to be intimidating; it doesn’t have to be hard. In fact, it shouldn’t be. As with every time we enjoy God’s presence, our goal is not to add religious burdens, but rather to enjoy God as a delight (Isaiah 58:13). Imagine what it would mean for your children to call family worship a delight! Of course, this might not always be the case (for your children or for you), but as parents, we should do what we can to remove obstacles from the easy enjoyment of Christ (Matthew 11:30; 23:4)

The Pleasures of God

The Pleasures of God is perhaps the most important book that John Piper has written. It is certainly the freshest and most penetrating. Many preachers and writers are calling Christians today to be more God centered. The irony is that even the call to be God-centered focuses attention on us, on what we must do. Certainly the Bible spends no small part of its pages telling us what we must do, but it does so out of profound God-centeredness. And here is a book that does not tell us what we must do to be God-centered; it simply is God-centered. Intoxicating. D. A. Carson, Professor, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

We need to teach women not to make false accusations of rape

Naturally, the liberal mainstream media – which anxiously reported on the hoax – is not nearly as interested in reporting on the correction. Because they have their agenda of blaming men for the free choices that women make. But it’s not just liberal mainstream media that pushes the rape culture myth. At the time this Rolling Stone story came out, I remember that traditional pro-marriage advocates like Brad Wilcox gleefully tweeted the false rape accusation story, and then had to take it back later. So this was by no means seen through at the beginning, except by men’s rights activists who were familiar with the nature of false rape hoax stories. “Pro-marriage” people are anxious to prove that they can fit in with liberals, and if they have to denigrate men to do it, they will.
