1 Cold Case Christianity

In this episode of the Cold-Case Christianity Broadcast, J. Warner presents a strategy to equip young Christians to defend the truth of the Christian worldview. J. Warner presents the training model described more fully in his book, Forensic Faith: A Homicide Detective Makes the Case for a More Reasonable, Evidential Christian Faith. What is the differences between “teaching” and “training”? Why should we abandon the teaching model in favor of more intentional training? Be sure to check out Forensic Faith and the accompanying curriculum. Be sure to watch the Cold-Case Christianity Broadcast on NRBtv every Monday and Saturday! In addition, here is the audio podcast (the Cold-Case Christianity Weekly Podcast is located on iTunes or our RSS Feed):

Book Review: Forensic Faith by J. Warner Wallace

Introduction As an elementary school teacher, I can appreciate the importance of being prepared.  Everyday before my students arrive at school, I know that there are numerous things that need to be ready in order to be an effective instructor.  Most importantly, I need to know the material I am teaching and be ready to present it in a way that my students can understand and apply.  When I teach my students anything, the ultimate goal is for them to take ownership of their own learning and be able to execute the skill I am teaching them independently. The same is true for Christian case makers.  Our job is not only to present the truth of the Christian faith in a way that is understandable (evangelism), but we also want to instruct in such a way that our listeners will ultimately be able to make the case themselves (discipleship).  We want our listeners to know Christ and then be equipped to make Him known to others. However, this is often times easier said than done.  And cold-case homicide detective and Christian case maker J. Warner Wallace understands.

The Point: Life on Enceladus

We’ve heard this all before. But life requires more than warm water and hydrogen to spring into existence. As Guillermo Gonzalez and Jay Richards argue in their book, “The Privileged Planet,” the conditions necessary for life are unbelievably rare, and as far as we know, Earth alone has them. Newsweek’s headline, like the hydrogen Cassini picked up, is mostly hot air.

The Point: Twilight in Japan

“If a society as a whole doesn’t recognize the need to “be fruitful and multiply,” life becomes hard for everyone.” Interesting advice, especially in a country where about 85% of the land is uninhabitable due to mountains, vulcanic rock and earthquakes and where major cities like Tokyo, Osaka and Kyoto are considered a serieus threat to both physical and mental health. After all, no where in the world is the number of suicides as high as in Japan’s major cities …

Shi’as contend Muhammad’s young wife Aisha committed the murder, while Sunnis believe a Jewish woman was ultimately responsible. Despite perpetual dispute, Sunni and Shi’a share remarkable unanimity when it comes to the main and the plain things of Islam.

Why Should I Believe Christianity? - a review

As you can see, this book isn’t a cold treatment of abstract reasoning, but a surprisingly warm, invitational account of how Christianity makes the most sense of the world. There is a limit to how much Anderson can address, which he whole-heartedly acknowledges. Whilst he is unable to go into the existential implications of belief, such as comfort in suffering and hope for the future, he covers essential ground extremely well. He holds his gaze on the reader as he anticipates comments and critiques in response to what he has written, and supplies a section on suggested further reading. This isn’t a comparative worldview survey, but his sharp analysis is punctuated with little comments here and there on the implications of other worldviews such as Naturalism. He outlines a Naturalist’s understanding of the question and asks us to weigh up whether it is a satisfactory response or not.

Dump Your Dream Girl

Over the years, I realized that Galatea was largely a misplaced thirst for God. I had, what theologians call, an over-realized eschatology. I expected heaven-on-earth now , so I was searching for the great Romance to be found with a mere mortal. But God is a better storyteller than Disney. The Galatea of the galaxy came to earth to love his unfaithful, weak, broken, fallen, ugly, unclean, and rebellious people. And by his death, the one made his bride beautiful. Galatea died for the godless.

Happy Birthday, Dear Church

Recognizing that Pentecost Sunday is the church’s birthday explains why many congregations include church-belonging rituals (like confirmations, first Communions, and baptisms) in their celebrations. When a local congregation commits to annually celebrating the church’s birthday, they are declaring that, as one common church saying goes, “The church is God’s plan A for the world—and there’s no plan B.” Yes, our individual journeys matter, but they are always part of the larger story God is telling through the people who gather in his name.

What is Apologetics? Explaining Why the Gospel is True and Reasonable

Jesus did not have a “Four Spiritual Laws” message that he recited with each new audience. Jesus communicated responsively to each situation or person he encountered. Sometimes he taught a parable or used a powerful image. Other times, he didn’t give information at all, but asked a question.[i] Walter Hollenweger explains:

24
God Seeks People to Worship Him in Spirit and Truth

What did Jesus mean? Proverbs 13:14 says, “The teaching of the wise is a fountain of life.” Perhaps, then, Jesus meant that the wisdom he gives satisfies the soul and turns a person into a fountain of life. Perhaps the water is his teaching. But the closest parallel to verse 14 is John 7:37–39, “Jesus stood up and proclaimed, ‘If anyone thirst, let him come to me and drink. He who believes in me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart shall flow rivers of living water.’ Now this he said about the Spirit which those who believed in him were to receive.” Just like John 4:14, this passage speaks of a drinking in and a flowing out. But here John makes plain that Jesus is speaking about the Holy Spirit. It’s the presence of God’s Spirit in your life that takes away your frustrated soul-thirst forever and turns you into a person who overflows with life for others instead of sucking up other people’s life like sandy soil.

25
Jesus used Apologetics. So should we.

works from the Father; for which of them are you going to stone me?” The Jews answered him, “It is not for a good work that we are going to stone you but for blasphemy, because you, being a man, make yourself God.” Jesus answered them, “Is it not written in your Law, ‘I said, you are gods’? If he called them gods to whom the word of God came—and Scripture cannot be broken— do you say of him whom the Father consecrated and sent into the world, ‘You are blaspheming,’ because I said, ‘I am the Son of God’? If I am not doing the works of my Father, then do not believe me; but if I do them, even though you do not believe me, believe the works, that you may know and understand that the Father is in me and I am in the Father.”

26
What Christian Parents Can Learn from Atheist Churches.

True to this rebranding effort, the “ Frequently Asked Questions ” page on the Sunday Assembly’s website attempts to distance the organization from a strict atheist association. In response to the question, “Is Sunday Assembly exclusively for atheists?” they say, “Absolutely not. We say in the Charter that we don’t do supernatural but we won’t tell you you’re wrong if you do. One of the unique things about Sunday Assembly is that it is radically inclusive–allowing us to celebrate life together, regardless of what we believe in.” They go on in other answers to discourage using their group as a vehicle for presenting atheist philosophy or for telling others that they’re wrong for what they believe.

When Marriage Is Miles Away

My advice: Be slower to declare clarity about the future in a long-distance relationship. The hurdles should keep us from hurrying to a decision to marry. Be skeptical of the romantic euphoria you feel after a month of late-night talks or your first couple weekends together. Give yourself more time to get to know each other. Plan for trips to spend time with people in each other’s lives. Be honest about the limitations of technology alone — as great as technology can be for dating — in developing a relationship and discerning each other’s readiness to wed.

Social Media Could Be Killing Your Spiritual Life

Maybe the next time you meet a friend for coffee, you leave the phone in your purse. Or when you’re at a concert, you snap one photo and put the camera away for the rest of the show. Or set aside a few hours at home as a “no screens allowed” time. Or, at the very least, the next time you start feeling bored or distracted, try to resist going for your phone as long as possible. Just see what happens.

One Father Will Never Hurt You

If our father did not display God’s character, or even the basic protective instincts of a parent, it stains our understanding of the entire position of “father.” As a child, I learned that fathers are scary and unpredictable, never to be trusted with body, mind, or heart. Children whose fathers are willfully absent learn that fathers cannot be depended on for anything. We learn that fatherly love is either fickle or a contradiction in terms.

Here’s How Healthy Couples Fight

5. Decide if it’s OK for one of you leave the room. Early on in our marriage, if my husband walked out, I would totally freak out. When my parents fought, one of them left for hours. I had to learn to trust my husband not to leave, which meant we sat in the same room together until we made some progress. Now, after 26 years together, it’s totally fine if he needs to go for a walk because I know he will come back.

Kindle Deals in Christian Apologetics: Greg's Top Ten Picks of the Week!

With every earthquake and war, understanding the nature of evil and our response to it becomes more urgent. Evil is no longer the concern just of ministers and theologians but also of politicians and the media. We hear of child abuse, ethnic cleansing, AIDS, torture and terrorism, and rightfully we are shocked. But, N. T. Wright says, we should not be surprised. For too long we have naively believed in the modern idea of human progress. In contrast, postmodern thinkers have rightly argued that evil is real, powerful and important, but they give no real clue as to what we should do about it. In fact, evil is more serious than either our culture or our theology has supposed. How then might Jesus' death be the culmination of the Old Testament solution to evil but on a wider and deeper scale than most imagine? Can we possibly envision a world in which we are delivered from evil? How might we work toward such a future through prayer and justice in the present? These are the powerful and pressing themes that N. T. Wright addresses in this book that is at once timely and timeless.  O

The Jihad Triangle (David Wood)

http://www.answeringmuslims.com Many people are confused by jihad. If Islam is a religion of peace, why is there a persistent problem of radicalism in the Muslim world? If Islam is the problem, why are there so many peaceful Muslims? In this video, David Wood explains that jihad isn't the product of a single factor, but of three factors: belief, knowledge, and obedience. These three factors come together in what we'll call "The Jihad Triangle." For more on Islam, be sure to watch these videos: "Three Stages of Jihad": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ERou_...

Is There Evidence for Life after Death?

Finally, freedom of the will presupposes that we are more than material robots. If I am merely material, my choices are a function of such factors as genetic makeup and brain chemistry. Therefore, my decisions are not free; they are fatalistically determined. The implications of such a notion are profound. In a worldview that embraces fatalistic determinism, I cannot be held morally accountable for my actions, since reward and punishment make sense only if we have freedom of the will. In a solely material world, reason itself is reduced to the status of a conditioned reflex. Moreover, the very concept of love is rendered meaningless. Rather than being an act of the will, love is relegated to a robotic procedure that is fatalistically determined by physical processes.

China’s God-Shaped Vacuum

The role of religion in China can be confusing, especially for Westerners who often see the world in black and white. The complexity Johnson describes includes a Taoist priest who travels the world, and the pastor of a public and thriving “underground” church. We see an officially atheist government that embraces and promotes traditional values, most of which are rooted in traditional religious beliefs. The government jettisoned one set of moral standards (Confucianism) for another (Marxism-Leninism-Mao Zedong hought), then jettisoned that one without replacing it with anything other than economic development, creating a moral and spiritual vacuum. Now, instead of trying to smash religious belief, the party is trying to co-opt it by focusing on traditional values.

3 Ways Complementarian Pastors Can Encourage Women

God’s design for headship in the church and home isn’t just a command to be obeyed; it is an expression of God’s best for his people. Yet too often the way we approach the complementarian conversation with women in our churches undermines this truth. Starting from either an apologetic or a defensive posture exposes our lack of trust that God’s Word is God’s best for his daughters (and his sons).
