Bigfoot - The Eric Metaxas Show

What’s the best piece of evidence? Though many genuine photos and video clips now exist, he best remains the 1967 Patterson film. By all rights, the Sasquatch issue should have been put to bed decades ago just based on this footage alone. The problem is a cognitive one: most viewers’ only experience of seeing an …

A few months into his imprisonment in Iran three years ago, pastor Saeed Abedini had a dream that he was out of prison celebrating his daughter Rebecca's 9th birthday. Rebecca turns 9 "in a few months," according to his wife, Naghmeh Abedini, and she is now looking to God to move on behalf of her husband.

Walt Russell explains how to read the Bible effectively

Twenty-four year-old “Janet” (not her real name) was angry at my emphasis on seeking to discover authors’ intentions when we read their texts. She was an evangelical Christian and a second grade teacher in a public school. She prided herself in helping her 20 students learn to love literature. She would read them a story as they gathered around her, and then ask each child, “What does the story mean to you?” She prodded them to come up with their own unique meanings. With such strong encouragement, the class of 20 would eventually have 20 different meanings for the one story. Janet sensed that I was a naysayer about such “love of literature.” Pouring a little emotional gasoline on the fire, I said, “Janet, you’re certainly doing your part to insure that these 7 year-olds will never recover from a radically relativistic view of meaning!” Now I had her full attention.

20 Quotes from Rosaria Butterfield’s New Book on Sexual Identity

“Christians are called ‘saints’ in the Bible. We who bear Christ’s spilled blood are a royal priesthood. Any category of personhood that reduces a saint to the sum total of his or her fallen sexual behavior is not a friend of Christ. . . . Making an identity out of sin patterns is itself a sin.” (114, 123)

Worriers 'R' Us

This emphasis on reason—and its array of seemingly infinite choices—promotes the idea that we must “use our own powers to discern” the one best choice. No wonder we worry so. Indeed, O’Gorman argues, “Worry is only possible in a world of choice. It’s even more possible when human beings think, in turn, that they have the capacity, let alone the right, to choose for themselves.”

Seven Subtle Symptoms of Pride

As seriously dangerous as pride is, it’s equally hard to spot. When it comes to diagnosing our hearts, those of us who have the disease of pride have a challenging time identifying our sickness. Pride infects our eyesight, causing us to view ourselves through a lens that colors and distorts reality. Pride will paint even our ugliness in sin as beautiful and commendable.

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.

Regional Breakdown of "Firefly" Vs. "Lightning Bug"

Bert Vaux, a linguistics professor at the University of Cambridge, asked 10,000 Americans around the country that question and others relating to regional dialects. If you use "firefly" and "lightning bug" interchangeably, like I do, you're in good company. Across the United States, 39.8 percent of respondents report using both terms. 30.4 percent say “firefly” exclusively and 29.1 percent say “lightning bug.” Meanwhile, 0.02 percent (or two people total in the study) call the bioluminescent bugs “peenie wallie” (perhaps they wanted to hurt the beetles' feelings).

The Rhetorical Tear Gas of Planned Parenthood

In the latest exposure of Planned Parenthood’s public baby-genocide, this rhetorical strategy—keeping terms and concepts generic, avoiding specifics—has been used for decades. Words like “choice,” “right,” and “health” (which each side affirms depending on how those terms are defined and qualified) are trotted out and exclusively claimed for marketing strategies toward the cause. For example, one person  tweeted : “I #standwithPP because I’m not grossed out by science and I still support choice!” The most obvious questions prompted from his choice of words are, “Who is grossed out by science in general, or who has even made such a claim?” and “What kind of choice are you talking about? Whose choice about what?” The rhetoric leaves the species for the genus; “selling aborted baby parts” is swapped for “science.” And using more rhetorical sleight of hand, “killing a baby inside a woman’s womb” is swapped for that most generic of words—“choice.

5 Ways to Break Up Well

When I was in college, I was in a relationship that ended after a year of dating. After we broke up, I was filled with so many emotions and questions. I felt sad and broken in a way I'd never felt before. After a couple months, I felt myself getting back to a normal place. I wasn't getting emotionally tossed around when I'd see something that reminded me of my ex. But when I started dating again, I was blindsided by things that I didn't know were still there, things I needed to work through. I needed more time.

The Urban Legend that Thomas Jefferson Believed in a Wall Separating Church and State

The answer, I believe, is found in the principle of federalism. Jefferson firmly believed that the First Amendment, with its metaphoric “wall of separation,” prohibited religious establishments by the federal government only. Addressing the same topic of religious proclamations, Jefferson elsewhere relied on the Tenth Amendment, arguing that because “no power to prescribe any religious exercise . . . has been delegated to the General [i.e., federal] Government[,] it must then rest with the States, as far as it can be in any human authority.”

This Job Influences the Future of Culture

Too many college career counselors and coaches measure success merely by the job placement rate of their graduating seniors. Although this is important, it’s not the only metric of success. My prayer is that more Christians will see this job as a strategic position and be a part of raising up the next generation of students to be a people who embrace true meaning, understand the breadth of God’s work in the world, and love the world to life through their vocations.

The Bible Does Not Condemn Homosexuality

Neil Elliott has called attention to the striking similarities between Paul's language and the incredible greed, violence, and sexual excesses of Gaius Caligula, an emperor who reigned in a period not too long before Paul wrote Romans. First of all, Gaius is closely linked to the practice of idolatry. The Roman writer Suetonius reports how Gaius "set up a special temple to his own godhead, with priests and with victims of the choicest kind." Another Roman writer, Dio Cassius, comments negatively on how Gaius was the only emperor to claim to be divine and to be the recipient of worship during his own lifetime. Gaius also tried at one point to erect a statue of himself in the Temple in Jerusalem; he was dissuaded only by a delegation from Herod Agrippa. Hence the link between Gaius and idolatry would have been well-known indeed, particularly in Jewish circles. But Gaius also serves as "Exhibit A" for out-of-control lust. Suetonius reports how Gaius "lived in perpetual incest with all his sisters, and at a large banquet he placed each of them in turn below him, while his wife reclined above.

Five Ways We Fight for Children

It’s one thing to protest external problems like Planned Parenthood for what it truly is — a baby-murdering machine. It’s another to look internally and ask how we can protest with our lives in faithful and tangible ways. Protesting online is easy, but protesting with our lives will demand more of us.

The Traits of Innovative Leaders

As my mentor pointed out to me in my early twenties, this is a character issue. It’s a sign of immaturity and selfishness, as what we want or feel right now is given complete precedence. It breaks trust with others as they come to realize we can’t be counted on to follow through on what we’ve said. It develops a really bad habit that will not serve you well. And it shortcuts the character development that happens in the hard work of persevering (Romans 5:3-4), a necessary quality for every leader.

Dr. Lane Tipton - ST313 Doctrine of Salvation

Dr. Lane Tipton, Associate Professor of Systematic Theology, describes his class "Doctrine of Salvation" and how it fits into Systematic Theology and the entire Westminster curriculum. Dr. Tipton expounds on redemption, imputation, regeneration, the biblical and confessional centrality and primacy of union with Christ and its benefits of justification, sanctification, and adoption, over against a Lutheran forensicism. Dr. Tipton elaborates on what this means for defining "the gospel" that we proclaim.

Women & Leadership in Sacramental Churches | The Junia Project

Thanks! This was very enlightening. I don’t come from a Sacramental Church background, so this is new information to me. I have been deeply studying the gender debate a little over a year now, and what is so clear is that the debate is really about what to do with women. It has been a painful and eye opening experience going from church to church trying to find a place belong. It’s hard walking into a churh when you feel like the leaders look at you as a problem to be solved or as a threat to godly order or as one who needs to be put/kept in her place. The whole idea of what is proper for women to do is very subjective. It is determined depending on who is in power or in charge. I now see that it changes from church structure to church structure. Thanks again! This opens a branch of study of which I was not even aware. May the Lord’s blessing be on you.

How to Get Your Kids to Ask More Questions About Their Faith

When we first started doing this, we went around in a circle, having each of our kids ask a question on their turn. The good side of doing it that way is that it encourages everyone to be thinking. The bad side is (1) that it can kill the momentum of the night if one kid is not feeling particularly thoughtful (everyone will be sitting around waiting for them to come up with something), and (2) that if your kids are competitive (as mine are), they’ll spend more time thinking up a good question for their impending turn than listening to the current discussion. We found the whole night flows better when you simply let everyone throw out questions as they have them. Just make sure that if someone didn’t ask something on their own, you give them the chance to.

WORLD | Senate approves bill to waive visa fees for stalled adoptions | Abby Reese | July 17, 2015

Steven and Alyssa Sieb have been waiting three years to adopt a child. While doing humanitarian work overseas, the couple met a little girl at an orphanage in Ethiopia. She was abandoned at birth, and the Siebs wanted to give her a home. But it's unlikely she will ever come to America because the Ethiopian government has said it will not approve adoptions from the region in which the orphanage is located.

Is It Robbing God to Tithe on Your After-Tax (Not Gross) Income?

The question here assumes that tithing in some way is required for Christians. The word tithe means 10 percent, not necessarily “a tenth of my income.” The biblical definition of a tithe is “giving 10 percent of one’s increase from crops grown in the land of Israel or cattle that feed off the land of Israel.” It was consistently connected to the land of Israel. A tithe was done multiple times a year, probably equaling more than 20 percent of crops. No one was ever commanded to give 10 percent from their general income (just crops and cattle). So unless you are under the Old Covenant and have crops based in the land of Israel or cattle that feed off the land of Israel, you do not qualify to tithe (Lev. 27:30–33; Num. 18:21–24; Deut. 14:22–29).

8 Biographies Everyone Should Read

In today's intellectual climate of specialization, I would like to see more biographies like the Metaxas book. What exactly is Bonhoeffer scholarship standards? If a Bonehoeffer scholar wrote a book about Bonehoeffer, it might not be accessible to the public. My question is--------why aren't there more writers like Metaxas who will make important figures understandable to the public? I read half of the Metaxas book (I had to give it back to my friend) and I found it to be weighty and researched. I especially enjoyed the part of Metaxas book about Bonehoeffer's time in America and his dilemma about what to do here. Maybe you could explain why it is not up to par or better----tell us what we should read that would match your scholarship standards.

Scott shows off his criminal talent, steals Hank’s original Ant-Man suit, tries it on out of curiosity, and ends up zooming through indoor plumbing at the size of an insect. An arrest, miraculous escape, and training montage later, Scott’s all set to help Hank and Hope save the world. The tropes are endless in this film, but if you can drop your cynicism for the genre long enough, the superhero standards can still be enjoyable.

They Shall Know Us by Our Parties

The theme… is just a great excuse to bring people, both Christian and not Christian, together in friendship and community. Again, the goal here is friendship and community and fun for its own sake. But inevitably, someone who attends these parties ends up saying to the host or the person who invited them, "What is it about you people? You seem to be a different kind of Christian. I find myself attracted to whatever it is that makes you tick."

Ligonier Ministries

Robert Charles Sproul was born on February 13, 1939, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, the second child of Robert Cecil Sproul and the former Mayre Ann Yardis. R.C.’s great grandfather immigrated to the United States in the nineteenth-century from Donegal, Ireland. R.C.’s early childhood years were defined largely by two things: World War II and his extended family. He was two years old when World War II broke out. His father, being too old for the draft, was appointed head of the draft board in his district. Only a few weeks after being appointed to his position, R.C.’s father came home in uniform and announced that he had enlisted in the army air corps because he couldn’t send others overseas into battle if he didn’t go himself. R.C.’s father was an honorable man, and he was known throughout the community for his integrity. Just prior to his deployment overseas, R.C.’s father invited his brother and family to live in the Sproul home, and there they resided for ten years.

The Behemoth

The Behemoth is a small magazine about a big God and his big world. From the editors of Christianity Today , this ad-free, digital biweekly aims to help people behold the glory of God all around them, in the worlds of science, history, theology, medicine, sociology, Bible, and personal narrative.


Joseph of Nazareth was a good and honorable man. The adoptive father of Jesus, he stood by his wife and raised her son—even when it appeared that she had betrayed him. Such is the love of adoption. But this love stands in stark contrast to what we see in our world today: on-demand abortion, unreported abuse, and widespread neglect.

Renewing Your Mind | Modern Philosophers | July 17, 2015

Philosophies such as Positivism, Pragmatism, Pluralism, and Relativism have been let loose to roam the halls of our schools, workplaces, and, yes, even our churches. So how do we deal with them? The first thing we must do is identify them. In this message, Dr. Sproul helps us do that, as he concludes this series on philosophy.

Dr. Michael Brown Has 40 Answers and 2 Questions for 'Gay' Christian Matthew Vines

8. How many gay brothers and sisters in Christ have you walked with on the path of mandatory celibacy, and for how long?  Less than 10, and not more than 10 years so far, but the term "mandatory celibacy" is misleading, since I've walked with heterosexual believers for decades who did not choose celibacy but never met their mate, and they found Jesus to be more than enough to carry them through. Plus, Jesus requires all of us to deny ourselves and take up the cross and follow Him, and He does not promise any of us a spouse. I also have close friends whose spouses divorced them and who believe they cannot remarry as long as their spouse is alive, and they too have survived and even thrived by God's grace despite years of singleness imposed on them by their convictions.

It’s Not all Bad News: The Upside of Social Media

Virtual relationships can enhance real relationships. If the only friends you have are on Facebook, that is certainly unhealthy. But apart from the occasional recluse you read about in the media, I don’t know of a single person where this is true. Instead, social media allows you to keep up with the moments people experience and don’t get a chance to share in real life. It helps us stay current with and connected to the people that matter most to us.
