J.I. Packer on Living to the End “Flat Out”

If we are to live “flat out” and full of zeal to the end, the key is hope. “Zeal should be unflagging every day, all day, and all the way. But if this is to happen, zeal must be fed by hope.”

Meriam Ibrahim Finally Leaves Sudan After Being Sentenced to Death for Her Faith

“We are here because of the courage of a 27-year-old mother — a 27-year-old mother, if you’ll just imagine the situation for a moment, in a prison on Khartoum [Sudan], which the U.N. says has an infant mortality rate of one child dying per day in that prison. At her side, at eight months pregnant, is a 21-month-old boy. And she is told that if she will denounce her faith in Jesus Christ, there’s the door, you can be a free person. But yet she refused to denounce her faith because she had the courage to stare death in the face.”

Autocorrect and Indwelling Sin

Slowing down your sanctification doesn’t mean you’re backsliding, in the same way that slow, intelligent repentance takes deeper roots than rash and uninformed repentance (see Jonah 3:6–10; Proverbs 19:2). So, here are two ways to slow down in your sanctification, and hopefully begin hacking away at a lot of unnecessary anxiety.

To the Ends of the Earth

I mean, Calvin is an enormous influence in France. You have the struggle with French Calvinists, known as the Huguenots, all through the 16th and 17th centuries, and the determination of the French crown to destroy Calvin’s French heirs, which he succeeds in doing in many respects. But, in doing so, he massively impoverishes France and destroys the French ability to exercise hegemony in western Europe. The 18th century was one long war between the French and the English. The English were at war with France every decade between 1690 and 1850. And one of the reasons why the English are able to win that war is because the French government’s desire for a unified religious state has gutted the Calvinist church, but in doing so has gutted largely its middle class. Calvin appeals very directly to the middle class and by gutting the middle class, there was a whole area of French life that never developed the way it did in Britain. And France didn’t have the finances to ultimately win that war and it eventually ended up in the Revolution as we have in the 1780s. Many of those who left France, the French Calvinists, ended up in England.

NYC Pastor Who Prayed With Meriam Ibrahim in Sudan Credits Those Who Cried 'Let Meriam Go!' for Defiant Christian Woman's Release (Video)

NEW YORK — The U.S. pastor who took it upon himself to fly to Sudan to meet with and pray for imprisoned persecuted Christian mother Meriam Ibrahim was among those celebrating her freedom Thursday. He credited the 27-year-old married mother's release to the outcry of people from around the world who were captivated by her steadfast Christian witness in the face of impending death.

What are 5 things to remember when talking with atheists? — Highlands Ministries

Their deepest need is to deal with their guilt . The best thing about dealing with atheists is we not only have what they need, but we have what they know they need. That is, because they dread their guilty standing before God they are ripe for hearing about Jesus’ solution to our guilt problem. Denying His existence is just whistling in the dark. Repenting of our sin, on the other hand, is singing in the heavenlies. As you remember point one, keep coming back to the atonement of Christ , and the offer of forgiveness for all who trust in His finished work.

25 Vintage Photos of Chicago

Chicago invented the skyscraper, has hosted two World's Fairs, and boasts its own kind of formidable pizza. Despite being one of the most populous cities in the country, it hasn't all been clear skies and Green River soda. Chicago survived one of the largest fires of the 19th century, organized crime, and a corrupt baseball team. Check out these pictures to see a glimpse of Chicago's transformation into the lively metropolis we know today.

Being Single to Give God Glory

As you might have noticed, the culture is in a state of sexual upheaval: young people are marrying later, having less kids, and embracing lifestyles that would stun their ancestors. In the midst of this turmoil, Christians are having a fresh conversation about singleness. Our take on singleness, after all, differs markedly from the world’s. We don’t live a single life as a man or woman to gratify our deepest urges or shirk responsibility. Whether single or married, we embrace the life God gives us in order to live it for his glory.

Rob Bell is back, rethinking the Bible - Stand Up For The Truth

Correction. People 'calling' themselves evangelical Christians are asking. They are asking because they don't want to obey what the bible says. They want a new Christianity that pleases their flesh. If they knew the true gospel, they wouldn't be worried about 'strict observance of biblical rules'. They would know that Jesus set us free from the Law by His death and resurrection in our behalf. These people, including Mr. Bell, have no concept of true Christianity. If they ever did, they have rejected it.

16 The Answer for Making Good Decisions - Stand to Reason Blog

I agree somewhat with thjs perspective. But it seems that it leaves major decisions open to "just try it and trust God." For instance, feeling like one is called to a particular minitry or ministerial work, or perhaps moving the family to a new state taking a new job... at what point do we get the will of God on these types of situations? Its seems practical, at least for certain scenarios, that one would need to know the Lord has spoken since the enemy WILL cause trouble later, or some set of difficult circumstaces will arise, and you'll need the confidence to say "no, the Lord has spoken, called me to such & such, and I wont budge. I'll fight for this (it), I wont give up." Something would need to anchor your decisions on certain matters with the confidence that "God said so." What do you think?

Common Questions About Trying To Do An Apologetics Ministry On A Major College Campus

This can be a challenge. First, we have to think about what speakers are a good match for the campus. Is the speaker a good speaker? Do they connect with students? Are they difficult to understand? Are they really an authority on a particular topic? What will be a title for an event that will grab people’s attention? What is the cost o the speaker? Let me give an example. I brought William Lane Craig to the campus a few years back. He did a lecture on seven reasons for the existence of God. Some students said it was great. Others said it was too much information. Others said he was over their heads.  The next year I brought in Frank Turek.  Many students enjoyed Frank. Of course, the atheists didn’t like him. But that is no shock! The other challenge to brining a speaker to the campus is that we have to work hard at promoting an event. This includes flyers, social media, word of mouth, etc. I recall one time when I was out promoting the Turek event on campus. A student walked up to me and said they were offended by the title ( I Don’t Have Enough Faith To Be An Atheist).

God's Presence and Your Sanctification

In fact, Paul leaned heavily on the presence of God in him when describing his own ministry: “But by the grace of God I am what I am, and His grace toward me did not prove vain; but I labored even more than all of them, yet not I, but the grace of God with me” (1 Corinthians 15:10). He understood his ministry as the fruit of Christ’s promise to His disciples prior to His ascension:

22 dangerous idea: Nagel on the idea that ID is science

The denier that ID [intelligent design] is science faces the following dilemma. Either he admits that the intervention of such a designer is possible, or he does not. If he does not, he must explain why that belief is more scientific than the belief that a designer is possible. If on the other hand he believes that a designer is possible, then he can argue that the evidence is overwhelmingly against the actions of such a designer, but he cannot say that someone who offers evidence on the other side is doing something of a fundamentally different kind. All he can say about that person is that he is scientifically mistaken.” ― Thomas Nagel

Top 10 Puritan Books on Sin | HeadHeartHand Blog

Now, I can’t say that I’ve ever been asked for my “Top 10 Books on Sin” (not exactly a list of bestsellers), but as we’ve been looking at the subject of sin the last few days I thought I’d highlight the books that I and others have found most helpful. We’ll start today with the Top 10 Puritan Books on Sin and next week I’ll post Top 10 Modern Books on Sin .

Can Science Explain Ultimate Reality?

I am frequently asked to recommend an introductory level resource for Christians desiring a better understanding of physics and cosmology and how the data from these disciplines relate to the Christian worldview. There seems to be a heightened interest in this area thanks to the recent airing of the Cosmos miniseries, which was a thinly-veiled attempt to promote atheist materialism by framing that philosophy as the rational and scientific perspective on reality.

A Diluvialist Response to the Buckland's Kirkdale Cave Hyena Den

I’ve written a bit about Rev. William Buckland and the Kirdale cave ( Kirkdale Cave Hyena Den:  A Young Earth Puzzle Since 1821 ) and so it was very interesting to read this commentary on Buckland’s thoughts written just a few years later.   I called this cave a young earth puzzle and here we get a taste for the initial diluvialist/biblical geologist response, just 7 years later, to Buckland’s description and explanation for the Kirkdale cave and its contents.   Remember that Buckland himself believed in a recent global flood but he thought it occurred after the hyenas had inhabited the cave.  He only considered the small layer of sediment covering the bones to be the result of that flood.  Here we see Mrs R. taking relying on the superior explanation of Granville Penn – early 19th century deluvialist – that the bones must have been washed into the cave by a global flood.  Mrs R. and Penn recognized that Bucklands explanation required a great deal of time and thus they sought an alternative explanation for the assemblage of bones found in this and other caves.

26 "Love Wins" by Rob Bell- A Brief Review and Study Guide

Yet throughout my reviews of the book (see links at the end), I have noted numerous errors found therein. First, Bell makes errors regarding historical theology. He makes claims about the history of the church which are falsified upon closer examination. Second, his interpretive method is very problematic, as he will often take merely a single part of a verse (sometimes two words completely torn from their context!) in order to make an entire argument about how all of Scripture needs to be interpreted through his chosen phrase [see the review of Chapter 2 and search for "enter life" for a thorough analysis of this]. Third, his exegesis is problematic in still other ways. For example, he will often cite a single verse as an argument for a theological position, even though his argument is contradicted in the very next verse or in the same paragraph. Fourth, he fails to present his arguments. Instead, he chooses to simply ask leading questions. Although this is not problematic in itself, it is clear that this style is intended to lead people into the conclusions Bell wants without any critical analysis.
