Worship: We Get Joy, God Gets Praise

Our worship of God involves a multitude of emotions, but the emotion at the root of all of them — if it’s true, spiritual worship — is joy.

The Attitude of Apologetics

Our preparation is to make us ready to give a defense and a reason for the hope that is in us… . If your neighbor says, “I notice that you are a Christian. What is it that you believe?” are you ready to explain not only what you believe but why you believe it? Some Christians tell those who inquire that we simply take a leap of faith with no bother about the credibility or the rational character of the truth claims of the Bible, but that response goes against the teaching of this text. The only leap of faith we are to take is out of the darkness and into the light. When we become Christians, we do not leave our mind in the parking lot. We are called to think according to the Word of God, to seek the mind of Christ and an understanding of the things set forth in sacred Scripture.

Cosmic Inflation: It Really Happened

In March 2014, a South Pole research team reported that BICEP2 had detected gravitational waves and definitively proved that the universe experienced hyper-expansion (an inflation event) when it was extremely young. 1 Such a momentous discovery, everyone agreed, was worthy of a Nobel Prize; however, it was not to be. In their zeal to be the first to find gravitational waves, the research team mistook a signal from cosmic dust for “primordial gravitational waves.” (See RTB’s coverage of the inflation drama here and here .)

Not Yet Married

I have been married for forty-eight years. But even now, a half-century later, the days of falling in love and “going with” Noël are still vivid in my memory. They are in a class by themselves. Marriage knows its unfettered ecstasies, but those years leading to marriage were supercharged with never-before and never-since emotions. We need God’s wisdom. And we need his supernatural help to live it out. Marshall Segal is a trustworthy guide. He is conscious of the world but conformed to the Word. God did not leave us without wisdom or power for this volatile season of life. Marshall will point you to both. John Piper, Founder & Teacher, desiringGod.org

Epic Failure: My Biggest Evangelism Mistake

Omniscient: I think the core of this is, “Wouldn’t it just have been better for god not to create anything at all to avoid suffering?” If anyone’s answer is yes, we have found the creator because they are obviously all knowing. I find it funny that creatures who can’t see all ends would ever assume that an all knowing god didn’t know what he was doing by allowing for suffering. Of course he knew. If he exists, obviously he thought human suffering suffering was worth whatever objectives he put in place. I don’t see any problem with this, unless you combine it with his love. Well, let’s use an illustration that might help understand one reason why these two don’t conflict. If I want to build a robot wife that truly loves me, I need to design in free will. This means I might have to make multiple robots before I get one that loves me, pre-knowing I will scrap the rest (assuming created robots won’t want to be scrapped). Perhaps I know I will have to create and destroy five robots before I get the sixth that loves me. Should I not do it? Deciding if this is worth it is up to me, the designer, not the robots.

Love Suffers Long

We use the term patience for a wide variety of things: for instance, putting up with a generally difficult person; not losing our temper in rush hour traffic; financial investing for the long term; not yelling at our child who’s throwing his umpteenth tantrum today or who’s left the milk on the counter for the umpteenth time; working steadily toward that degree; or not thinking (or uttering) a profanity when the software program stalls, requiring a hard shutdown and losing our unsaved work.

12 Things Your Professors Won't Tell You About God and Science

Naturalistic evolution is governed by the drive for survival. If our brains are the product of naturalistic evolution, then they (and the beliefs they generate) are driven by survival. Over time useful fictions (pragmatic but false beliefs) are the beliefs that survive natural selection. If are what is false is necessarily selected by nature to be what we believe, then we cannot trust our beliefs about our world. We can only think that our beliefs have survival value but not truth-value...and we are not free to choose to believe otherwise (see #10). This ultimately undermines the purpose of college and the university. If this has you concerned and just curious, tap the link above for more depth.

Origin of Life and Information -- Some Common Myths | Evolution News

To continue the analogy, you mention your design inference to your friend Stanley Miller the Third who happens to be an origin-of-life chemist. Stanley believes any attribution of design to pasta sequences in soup is based on the concerned-parent-of-the-gaps fallacy, so he mocks your superstitious beliefs. He then states that the sequence could have come about as a result of the boiling soup cooling to room temperature. Since cold soup has a lower entropy than hot soup, he believes the reduction in entropy could have generated the information in the message. You would immediately recognize that a reduction in thermal entropy has no physical connection to the specific ordering of letters in a meaningful message. The same principle holds true in relation to the origin of life for the required sequencing of amino acids in proteins or nucleotides in DNA.

Learn How to Be Brought Low

Paul’s imprisonment did not sabotage God’s plan to advance the gospel. Prison was God’s plan to advance the gospel. And the same is true for us. Being brought low may ruin our plans, but not God’s better, wiser, kinder plans for us. If we will learn how to be brought low, we will one day testify, “I want you to know, brothers, that this bankruptcy has really served to free me from money’s stranglehold.” Or, “I want you to know that this betrayal has really taught me how to forgive.” Or, “I want you to know that this sickness has fueled my hope for heaven like nothing else.”

He is preparing his saints to sing an everlasting song of unrestrained joy, offering full-throated praise to the glory of the Lamb who was slain.

The Turquoise Table Movement Wants You

When the Lowe’s delivery men arrived with the tables, they dropped one in Schell’s front yard. Before she had a chance to redirect them, Schell had an unorthodox thought: What if she left the table there, right next to the street, and made a point to show up? With a splash of paint—specifically, Sherwin-Williams Nifty Turquoise—Schell christened her creation. As she sat outside every morning praying, she began to meet people she had lived next to for years. “I started learning the difference between entertaining and hospitality,” Schell says. “Entertainment… you can’t do all the time, you can’t do that at every opportunity. Hospitality is a way of life. It’s not what we’re doing; it’s who we are.”

Why the Modern World Is Making Us Miserable

When it comes to ease and comfort, the infrastructure of the modern world is unsurpassed. However, the recent epidemic of mental health challenges is telling us that something else is going on. There’s an interesting phenomenon called the Immigrant Paradox: People migrating from the majority world to the West often experience an initial improvement in health and well-being. Yet, as they become fully assimilated into Western culture, the gains are reversed. It seems there is something about the perks of modernity, and the skewed expectations they create, that throws us off balance.

How Is Jesus Both Joy and Master?

How do we then serve? And 1 Peter 4:11 is my favorite expression of the answer. It goes like this: “Whoever serves, [let him serve] by the strength that God supplies — in order that in everything God may be glorified through Jesus Christ. To him belong glory and dominion forever and ever.” So, we are being served by God every millisecond of our lives as he supports our being and gives us all the strength we need so that all of our giving and serving is a receiving first — and that is what it means to live by faith.

Parents are the first apologists your child should ever meet

One ministry that I am afraid that will be left out of this new attention given to loving God with all of your mind (Luke 10:27) will be the children’s ministry. It will be easy to assume that because of the nature of apologetics small children will not be able to comprehend that kind of information. At best apologetics for most churches will begin at the high school level because of the obvious need there and because of the misconception that small children cant handle it. In other words, it will be difficult to convince local churches to substitute paintings of Anselm and Thomas Aquinas for Noah’s Ark and Daniel in the lion’s den. Unfortunately those in the culture interested in imposing their will on your children will not be so naïve.

Are Christians Too Intentional in Dating?

On the opposite side of those that are too intentional are those that are not intentional enough. They flit from relationship to relationship, chasing the infatuation high. Each interaction is just one more in a string of experiences for people intent, consciously or unconsciously, on pursuing a personal sense of euphoria, with no regard for its longevity or for who might get hurt along the way. If they cannot cry out with the woman of Song of Solomon, “I am sick with love!” (Song 2:5), then they want no part of the relationship. They do not think about what makes love likely to last, or how they could better care for the person they are with, but simply seek a neurochemical re-up on their drug of choice.

Did Jesus Falsely Predict His Return?

Biblical Prophecy is a very dynamic topic. There have been many books written on the topic and many areas that need to be covered before one can truly understand the depths on the genre of prophecy in the Scriptures. But that doesn't mean a novel Bible reader cannot understand some of the basics with a bit of common sense and an ability to read context. In Matthew 24:32-34 Jesus says:

The Mind of Christ: Looking Out for the Interests of Others

I have thought it necessary to send to you Epaphroditus my brother and fellow worker and fellow soldier, and your messenger and minister to my need, for he has been longing for you all and has been distressed because you heard that he was ill. [Notice how amazingly their interests dominate: He was not distressed that he was ill, nor was he distressed that they had not heard he was ill, like most of us who want others to know if we are sick; instead he was distressed because they heard he was ill! Would they be too worried? Would they fear he died? Their interests were on his heart.] Indeed he was ill, near to death. But God had mercy on him, and not only on him but on me also, lest I should have sorrow upon sorrow. . . . So receive him in the Lord with all joy, and honor such men, for he nearly died for the work of Christ, risking his life to complete what was lacking in your service to me.

How the Reformation Rediscovered Happiness

But then Luther realized Paul was describing righteousness as a gift God gives, which we receive by faith. Speaking of Romans 1:17, Luther says, “I began to understand that in this verse the justice of God is that by which the just person lives by a gift of God, that is, by faith.” God credits us with the perfect righteousness of Christ while Christ endures the punishment deserved by our unrighteousness. “All at once,” he continues, “I felt that I had been born again and entered into paradise itself through open gates.” A little later he writes, “I exalted this sweetest word of mine, ‘the justice of God,’ with as much love as before I had hated it with hate. This phrase of Paul was for me the very gate of paradise.”

The Case for Case Making

Recently, I had the opportunity to speak to the youth students at our church on the topic of discipleship.  The lesson I used as part of my preparation included passages from Matthew chapters 4 and 9 to show that Jesus’ team of disciples weren’t necessarily what we would consider the “cream of the crop.”  The other point emphasized in the lesson was that we must first repent and believe before becoming disciples of Jesus Christ.

Husbands Who Love Like Christ and the Wives Who Submit to Them

Be subject to one another out of reverence for Christ. Wives, be subject to your husbands, as to the Lord. For Christ is the head of the church, his body, and is himself its Savior. As the church is subject to Christ, so let wives also be subject in everything to their husbands. Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church, and gave himself up for her, that he might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, that he might present the church to himself in splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, that she might be holy and without blemish. Even so, husbands should love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. For no man ever hates his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, as Christ does the church because we are members of his body. “For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.” This mystery is a profound one, and I am saying that it refers to Christ and the church; however, let each one of you love his wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband.

Comparison Surrenders in Corporate Worship

This short psalm puts us in our rightful place. It teaches us to open our hands to whatever God gives us each day, in want or in plenty. Because these daily graces come from a God we know and trust, we can trust what he gives us. We don’t have to grasp in mistrust that our God won’t come through in our need. We don’t have to compare with others for what they have or don’t have. Our trust and our hope are found in someone who has never failed before. We can rest in him and keep moving when our hearts are tempted to compare.

Why you need to read "God's Crime Scene" by J. Warner Wallace

God's Crime Scene is indeed a unique apologetics overview in which J. Warner takes an investigative, evidential approach to the universe as a crime scene. The author walks the reader through the "inside the room or outside the room" methodology used by homicide detectives, which he applies in his investigation of the broad evidence for God's design. He challenges the reader to examine eight important pieces of evidence common to our human observations and experience to discern whether pure unguided naturalism or supernatural intervention best accounts for the evidence at the "crime scene." In doing so, J. Warner masterfully uncovers the compelling evidence for the existence of God and His intelligent design of the universe, drawing from a broad range of philosophical, cosmological, scientific, and moral evidence to build a bold, logical case for the biblical worldview…

43
Were all the New Testament Authors Apologists?

The New Testament writers anticipate and answer objections and seek to demonstrate the credibility of the claims and credentials of Christ, focusing especially on the resurrection of Jesus as the historical foundation upon which Christianity is built. Many New Testament writings are occupied with polemics against false teachings, in which the apologetic concern is to defend the gospel against perversion from within the church.

Cold Case Christianity

Everyone has a worldview, and our overarching beliefs ultimately impact the way we evaluate our experiences and interpret claims and objectives, including claims about purpose and meaning. My friend, Teasi (pronounced “Tee See”) Cannon has a deep love for Christian case making (apologetics) and has incorporated that passion in a new book entitled, Lord, Where’s My Calling? When the Big Question Becomes a Big Distraction. Few books addressing this topic engage the issue with an eye on Christian case making. Teasi’s book is readable, intelligent and enlightening. She writes from the rare perspective of someone who is incredibly well read from an apologetics perspective, while possessing a Master’s degree in Pastoral Counseling from Liberty Theological Seminary. in Lord, Where’s My Calling? Teasi tackles the true definition of “calling” while incorporating everything she’s learned as a “one-dollar apologist.” She graciously agreed to an interview about the book J. Warner Wallace: Teasi, I know you have a deep interest in Christian apologetics. What was your purpose in writing this book? Teasi Cannon: My purpose in writing this book is really two-fold: first, as a thank you to God for how faithful He’s been—patiently continuing the work He’s begun between my ears.

Three Thoughts on the Masterpiece Cakeshop Cert Grant

First, don’t let anyone tell you that this case is about status-based discrimination. The bakery is no more discriminating against gay people than a baker discriminates against white people if he declines to bake a Confederate flag cake. The baker bakes cakes for gay customers. He didn’t want to lend his talents to send a specific message — namely, approval of gay marriage.

Words of Kindness, Source of Healing

And I went on with that for a while with them and as I did, one little girl—and I’ll never forget this little precious child--she stood up at the end of the row; she turned to all the people and she said to them, “What she means is ...” (Laughter) Amazing. Amazing how a little child shall interpret it so the adults can understand. (Laughter) And she said, “What she means is, that our words should be like a little silver box with a bow on top.” I looked at her and I said, “That’s right. That’s what our words should be, that we should think of it like that. When our words come out, they should be like little silver boxes with a bow on top. Now I loved what she said. It stayed in my mind and I’ll never forget, even though I have no idea what that little child’s name was, but I’ll never forget her saying, “What she means is, your words should be like a little silver box with a bow on top.”
