Does Science Make the Case for God, or Not?

Does science make the case for God, or not? It depends on whom you ask. Author and TV host Eric Metaxas argued the affirmative position in a recent (December 2014) Wall Street Journal piece . 1 A month later in response to Metaxas’ article, the New Yorker published an opposite position 2 from theoretical physicist Lawrence Krauss . Rather than weigh in with my perspective (I find science and the Christian faith to mutually reinforce one another), I want to draw some insight from each article in order to help engage the conversation more effectively. I’ll start by examining Krauss’ article, and in part two, I’ll address Metaxas’ original article.

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.

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.

BreakPoint: Turning Children into Jewelry?

Today, an Australian company has brought back the idea in a frankly bizarre and repulsive way: They are turning fertilized human embryos—that is, children at the embryonic stage—into jewelry. It’s a stunning example of how far we have fallen in terms of treating children as commodities.

Please Make a Mess of Your Bible | Cold Case Christianity

Now go take a look at your Bible. Is it a colorful mess? Is it filled with notes and highlights and investigative diagrams? Why not? When I first got interested in the words of Jesus, I invested as little as I could and purchased a six dollar pew Bible. I looked for one that had the largest possible margins. I knew how I was going to treat it, and I kept it to remind myself of the investigative passion that I’ve always had for the Scripture. Do you own a Bible that reflects your investigative passion? Start thinking like a detective and go make a mess of your Bible.

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.

Understanding Vehicular Jihad (David Wood) In the past year, we’ve seen vehicular terrorist attacks in France, the United States, Germany, and Great Britain. Given the success of these attacks, we certainly haven't seen the last of them. Hence, our task now should be to understand vehicular jihad, so that we can eventually stop such attacks. In this video, David Wood explains the rise of vehicular jihad.

Ravi Zacharias Visits Guam; Live Stream Sunday, June 4 | RZIM

“We are honored to host Ravi Zacharias and are praying that people from all across the island of Guam will attend and be challenged with Ravi’s biblical wisdom,” said Jared Baldwin, Executive Pastor of Harvest Baptist Church, who formerly served in the U.S. Air Force and is hosting the Sunday evening gathering. “Although the majority of Guamanians would consider themselves religious, they still have many unanswered spiritual questions. We are praying that Ravi’s ministry will help our community understand the foundations of our Christian faith and develop a heart to follow God amid life’s joys and struggles.”

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.

Sunni-Shi'a Split - Christian Research Institute

10 Sunni-Shia Split by Hank Hanegraaff Today’s Religious Movements: The split between the two major branches of Islam — Sunni and Shi’a — stems from the homicide of Muhammad. 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.

Exposing the Underlying Worldview: Acts 17

The Briefing 06-09-17 -

One of the things to note here is that even though we have a plethora, indeed an enormous magnitude of media options available to us, including many news options, they are not all equal, not only in terms of their editorial viewpoints, but also in terms of their velocity, in terms of the speed of their reporting, their commentary, and their analysis. It’s helpful for us to recognize that the advent of these live cable networks, largely 24/7 in terms of timing, that that has brought certain advantages to the American public, certainly access in terms of unfolding news story that Americans never had before. But we also need to recognize that in terms of this live cable news network programming, the analysis outstrips the reporting. That’s the danger. The camera is notoriously live, these television networks increasingly put together panels who join the anchor in order to discuss the events of the day. And most importantly these days, those events have been focused on the White House and the unfolding investigation concerning Russia’s involvement in the 2016 U.S. presidential election. The anchor is surrounded by commentators who have to keep on speaking, often arguing, exchanging only soundbites, often not even communicating with one another.

What to Do When Tough Times Hit

At no other time in our lives will we experience Christ more intimately than when we are at our weakest. “Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted,” the Bible says. Perhaps it’s because we finally make ourselves completely vulnerable to Him in a way only suffering can enable us to. Either way, Christ is able to comfort us—if we let Him. Not only is He almighty God, but He was once a man too, a man who walked in our shoes many miles over. He understands our pain. Empathy is more than the unilateral presence of company. Empathy is security: knowing someone has endured similar circumstances reassures us that there is a way out for us, too. But Jesus didn’t just endure suffering and come out of it OK—He was victorious and His victory over death and suffering ensures our victory too.

Cold-Case Christianity Teaching Outlines | Cold Case Christianity

We get requests every day from people just like you who are trying to teach the material from Cold-Case Christianity: A Homicide Detective Investigates the Claims of the Gospels . If you’re a pastor, small group leader, or teacher, we’ve assembled everything you’ll need to effectively communicate the case for the reliability of the New Testament Gospels. If you’ve ever had to make a presentation of this kind, you know the important questions:

Do You Believe the Whole Gospel?

Unbelief. This one word expresses the judgment Emil Brunner, the Swiss “crisis theologian,” used to describe nineteenth-century liberal theology. The rise of such liberalism was a conscious synthesis between naturalism in the world of philosophy and historic Christianity. Liberalism sought to de-supernaturalize the Christian faith and to restrict the modern significance of Jesus and the New Testament to ethical considerations, particularly with respect to the needs of human beings, and especially with respect to their material needs.

Should We Take The Descriptions Of Hell Literally?

Frank Turek informs us as to whether or not the Bible is being literal in its descriptions of hell.

When Two So-Called “Married” Women (or Men) Repent

One of the more difficult scenarios will be what the church should do when, say, two women, who have lived in a so-called married state for some years, are converted to Christ, repent of their sin, and want to join the church. And what if they have children?

Whom Does God Worship on Sunday?

If God demeaned his supreme worth in the name of humility, we would be the losers, not God. God is the one being in the universe for whom self-exaltation is the highest virtue. For there is only one supremely beautiful being in the universe. There is only one all-satisfying person in the universe. And because of his supreme beauty and greatness, what the psalmist says in Psalm 16:11 is true: “In your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.” If God hides that, or denies that, he might seem humble, but he would be hiding from us the very thing that would make us completely happy forever.

The Evidence for Christianity Doesn't "Tell" Us Anything

I’m usually careful to avoid making overly aggressive claims when sharing the evidence for Christianity. I seldom tell anyone I can “prove” Christianity is true. Instead, I typically say something like, “I’d be happy to share the evidence I found compelling.” In my experience, there’s a big difference between “proof” and “evidence” . Journalists are seldom careful, however, in distinguishing between the two. I did a quick Internet search and found the following articles:

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.

Does Disagreement Prove There Are No Objective Moral Truths? | Cold Case Christianity

The fact four people could not agree on the objective truth related to the suspect in this case did not refute the objective nature of the suspect, and their disagreement was not evidence against his existence. All were certain a suspect existed, and all would readily admit his existence was not a matter of personal opinion. In spite of this, none of them could agree entirely on his description (his nature). In a similar way, theists who acknowledge the existence of objective, transcendent moral truths may disagree on their identity and (more likely) how these objective laws ought to be employed or expressed. This disagreement is not evidence against the existence of transcendent moral truth; it is merely a reflection of the nature of humans who are trying to be good witnesses. Some of us have thought more deeply about this than others. Some of us allow our own personal moral history to color our observations and descriptions. My purse snatch witnesses couldn’t agree on the nature of the suspect. In spite of this, one objective suspect existed and his identity was not dependent on the witness’ opinions.

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.

EXCLUSIVE: Theresa May talks faith, the Church and the election - Premier

Addressing the concern shared by many Christians, that their faith is being marginalised, she said: "In this country it's absolutely right that we believe in freedom for people to practice all faiths or none and it's important that we continue to respect different faiths and people who choose to practice.

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.
