What We Get Wrong About 'Finding God's Will'

Not only does God have an epic plot for your life, but He wants you to trust in Him. God has given us these tough decisions not to be stressed out but to make us realize we can’t do this on our own. He gives us more than we can handle, so we are forced to lean in on Him to find strength. Just as Provers 3:5-6 says, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.” So instead of praying to find God’s will, let’s start praying to find faith in God’s guidance.

Grace to You

Jesus never watered down the gospel message as many evangelistic appeals do today. That only compromises God’s Word and does a severe disservice to those who hear such a message. The Lord, by contrast, did not mince words with the apostles: “Behold, I send you out as sheep in the midst of wolves” (Matt. 10:16). And He continued that tone at the end of His ministry: “These things I have spoken to you so that you may be kept from stumbling. They will make you outcasts from the synagogue, but an hour is coming for everyone who kills you to think that he is offering service to God” (John 16:1–2). Neither did Paul waver from stern words of reminder that “all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will be persecuted” (2 Tim. 3:12).

Keith Olbermann's Takedown of the NFL's Double Standard Is a Must-Watch

Whatever your take on Keith Olbermann, he is capable of some of the best, most clear-headed rants in the business. In this blistering, brutal takedown, Olbermann compares the NFL's offensively pathetic two game suspension of Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice for viciously assaulting his wife with its five-game suspension of the Dallas Cowboys's Albert Haynesworth for an on-field stomp. It's sexist, it's sickening and Olbermann handles it well. Take note, NFL ...

Nepal’s Most Unlikely Church Planter

His notorious thug life was spreading intimidation, but it was also incubating anger and hate in his heart. “I grew angry. If a man walked down the street and stared at me, I would beat him. One time a man was staring at me with no reason, which provoked me. I approached him, but he went up into a city bus. I ran in front of the bus and made it stop. The driver became scared and stopped. I went inside the big crowd; I pulled the man out and beat him on the street. He was crying for help but nobody dared to help him. Apart from an occasional fight with a rival gang, fighting was rare, because most people were scared of me.”

Now, when we hear that as Christians, so often we think that all we have to do is to become obvious nonconformists. So if the world wears buttons and bows, we don’t wear buttons and bows, or if the world wears lipstick, we don’t wear lipstick. We try to show ways in which we are different from the world. But that’s not what the Bible is talking about. It’s not just a matter of being different from the world; we are to go beyond nonconformity to transformation. That fits with everything the Scripture tells us of being salt and light to the world. Something that is transformed is something that is changed. The prefix trans-means “above and beyond.” We are to be above and beyond the standards of this world, not in the sense that we are to elevate ourselves in lofty status above everybody else, but that we are called to a more excellent way of life.

Raise Your Voice for Religious Liberty

The backlash against simply participating in civil discourse about an important topic of public concern is alarming—but not a first. In 2012, Angela McCaskill, associate provost for diversity and inclusion at Gallaudet, a federally chartered private university for the deaf in Washington, D.C., was put on administrative leave after it became known that she had signed a petition—along with 200,000 other Maryland residents—to put a referendum on the ballot for citizens to review a same-sex marriage law passed by the state legislature. Mere participation in the political process was enough to warrant such treatment of McCaskill, the first black, deaf woman to earn a PhD from Gallaudet and a 20-year veteran of the staff.

The hero story

The promises of the coming seed of the woman all partake of a haunting, hopeful melody, to which the Old Testament’s composer returns again and again. The delay between these prophecies only increases the pathos, adds to the beauty so pure it’s painful. The next oracle almost sneaks up on us, and at points we only recognize it after it has passed us by. Suddenly the words ignite and we read and re-read the promise of a seed who is a lion who wields a scepter who will be a son to the Most High. Each installment in the interweaving of prophecy and pattern comes like a familiar rhythm, or a restrained suggestion, hearkening us back to something earlier in the music. The artist who orchestrates the living production in real time threads the line of promise lightly – but thoroughly – through the whole symphonic poem of the Bible.

Christ in the Old Testament

The great promise of Genesis 3:15 is fulfilled in Jesus Christ. God said to the serpent, “I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and her offspring; he shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise his heel.” Jesus is the offspring of the woman who crushes Satan under his feet (cf. Rom 16:20). God appeared to Abraham, promising him that the whole world, the very ends of the earth, would be blessed through him and his offspring (Gen 12:3). The New Testament (NT) teaches that Jesus is the offspring of Abraham through whom the curses introduced by Adam would be overcome (Gal 3:16). Moses spoke of a prophet that would come after him to reveal the will of the Lord (Deut 18:15), and Jesus is the final and definitive word of God to us (Heb 1:2). Joshua gave the people earthly rest in the land, but there is a better rest in Jesus, a heavenly rest that will never end (Heb 3:12-4:11). The OT sacrifices were offered for the forgiveness of sins, but Jesus offers a far better sacrifice than animal sacrifices, and He is a far better priest than the Aaronic priests. As the Melchizedekian priest and the Son of God, His sacrifice for sins secures forgiveness once for all (Heb 7:1-10:18).

Is Israel’s Response to Hamas Disproportionate?

This, of course, is the crux of her farce. Those who criticize Israel for such alleged "disproportionate responses" or a massacre and care nothing for real massacres that take place around the rest of the world, base their "opinion" on a foundation of anti-Semitism, plain and simple. Reality just complicates that. And based on that worldview, it's quite OK for Israelis to be attacked and have to defend themselves. In order to make our response at all justifiable, we need to have an equal number of deaths as the enemies who want to kill us.

Seeing Beauty and Saying Beautifully

“Poetic effort,” to Piper, is not just writing poems, but working to “see and savor and speak the wonder—the divine glory—that is present everywhere in the world God made, in the history God guides, and in the Word God inspired.” Herbert, the phenomenally talented poet, and Lewis, the compelling author of fiction, literary history, and apologetics, both fit smoothly into this framework. As the author of a forthcoming biography of Whitefield , I was intrigued to see how Piper would handle the evangelist, who may be the least obvious subject of these three. Many, including Christian writers, have disparaged the written text of Whitefield’s sermons as shallow and confused. Even as sympathetic a biographer as J. C. Ryle called his printed sermons a “mingle-mangle.”

Seeking a Return on Investment in People

I wasn’t raised with a Christian worldview. In fact, I didn’t even become a Christian until I was in my 30s.

Renewing Your Mind | Self-Creation (Part 1) | July 26, 2014

Fourth, and this is particularly interesting, that which He initially creates is not its final form. He creates in order to employ further artistry and design. Beginners in Hebrew at seminaries can often be heard repeating a phrase from Genesis 1:2: “The earth was without form and void.” What God initially brought into being was “tōhu vabōhu,” “formless and empty mass.” Initially, the created universe had no distinctive shape; its structure would be formed by the artistry and design of God. In this sense, we are like God. We, too, fashion and mold and make things that are often beautiful. It is, in part, what Genesis 1:26–27 means by saying that Adam was created “in the image of God.” Man, too, creates, or better, re-creates, shapes his environment in such a way as to reflect something pleasing and good. Once man fell, this capacity became as much a liability as a blessing: his capacity to fashion became a means to idolatry.

Should Pastors Preach From an iPad? - Prince on Preaching

Interesting post. Should Pastors also not preach from notes then? Is there really a difference between preaching from notes or from an iPad? Do the same Pastors “disguise” notes in their bibles to make it look like they are preaching from the bible when they are really preaching from printed or handwritten notes? I prefer blatant honesty – just put the notes or iPad on the pulpit beside your bible, if you really feel like you need an open bible for the “authority” factor. Great point that we no longer use scrolls – made me laugh – delivery methods change, but the Word does not.

His Bunch O Balloons—which has already raised more than $263,000 on Kickstarter —uses a special attachment that fills and ties (using an elastic o-ring) 37 balloons at once. The Bunch O Balloons is so effective, that it can fill 100 water balloons in a single minute. It’s a wondrous time to be alive ...

The Forgotten Lesson of Bonhoeffer, and the American Church

We ought to remember that Bonhoeffer didn't see himself as some hero, nor did he seek to undermine Hitler and the Nazis through one big conspiratorial and heroic act.  Long before he became part of the Abwehr and joined the conspirators, long before the outbreak of the war even, he worked steadily at preaching and teaching the gospel, training pastors, teaching children, pastoring congregations, praying, working in ecumenical organizations, and all the while he steadily, from early days, opposed what he saw the Nazis believing and doing.  He tried to get the church to remain faithful to the truth and to the gospel under the one Lord of the Church, Jesus Christ, in the face of a challenge to that Lordship by the state.  I don't see a contradiction in seeing the German Church under the Nazis as a cautionary tale AND seeing Bonhoeffer as a hero of the faith.  One needs to read widely of Bonhoeffer's works and view him in the context (historical and ecclesiastical) he was ministering in to realize that this man was a genuine brother in Christ.  Some say he was too liberal.  Look at his context.

26 Engaging Culture: Demon Hunter's "Extremist" and the Apologetic Task

Not only that, but an album and band like this is capable of becoming an apologetic itself. I’ll never forget hearing Demon Hunter’s song “Thorns” for the first time (from an earlier album) and relating it back to the reality of the Cross and Jesus resurrection. Music like this which is lyrically fulfilling is itself an apologetic presentation. The fact that a band like Demon Hunter has the talent to headline shows at Ozzfest, among others, speaks to the appeal of the Christian worldview even in a culture which allegedly remains “checked out.” I thus also want to appeal to my fellow Christians generally: use the talents God gave you. Your worldview will come through in your writing, playing, painting, sculpting, and the like. God has uniquely gifted  you  to be a light to the nations.

10 Tips to Become a Better Thinker

Oscar Wilde said, “ A man who does not think for himself does not think at all.” What makes a person a “good thinker?” Here are some traits we can cultivate to help us become better thinkers:

28
Worship in the Dark

Sometimes the weight of our trials are so severe that we feel as if we can’t keep our heads above the water. The pain is so vicious, the malaise so thick, that we can’t imagine our situation ever changing. We can’t see healing. We can’t articulate hope. And when we try, it just hurts more. We’d rather not pray. We’d rather not open the eyes of our mind — not with all this destruction, not when it’s so dark.

29 Finding God's will for our lives

A while back, I was busily working my way through the U.S. Marine Corps Official Reading List , and I came across a book by C.S. Forester called Rifleman Dodd , or alternatively titled Death to the French . It’s a work of historical fiction that takes place during the Napoleonic wars. The story is about a British marksman named Dodd, who is cut off from his own lines during a withdrawal maneuver. He is subsequently left to fend for himself behind enemy lines. An ordinary man might be full of despair and forget about his mission entirely. But Dodd is no ordinary man. Not only does he find a way to survive by finding food to eat, water to drink and places to sleep, but he also tries to remember his orders and to think about what he can do to advance the cause of his General, the Duke of Wellington.

Why are Christians so hypocritical & judgmental?

Graham argues that just as we would not expect someone to judge what we consider to be a brilliant song by listening to a cover by very poor musicians, we should not judge Jesus by the fact that Christians often fail to live up to the standard he set. Jesus had harsh words to say to hypocrites and so there is no place for hypocrisy in the lives of those who claim to follow him. But we are all sinners and fail at times. Christians will disappoint, but Jesus won't.

33 Ohio State University core class teaches that atheists are smarter than Christians

The university is a challenging problem for Christians who want to make a difference. On the one hand, it’s definitely a center of influence where many young people come to learn how the world works. On the other hand, if you are a conservative Christian, you will be attacked there. It would be nice if Christians could somehow influence the university, helping young people to find or keep their relationship with God in Christ. But I don’t think it’s a priority for most Christians. Ratio Christi does a good job, and I like to sponsor their events. We lose a lot of young people who are raised in Christian homes at the university.

34 Dennis Prager explains what feminism has achieved for women

2) The second awful legacy of feminism has been the belief among women that they could and should postpone marriage until they developed their careers. Only then should they seriously consider looking for a husband. Thus, the decade or more during which women have the best chance to attract men is spent being preoccupied with developing a career. Again, I cite woman callers to my radio show over the past 20 years who have sadly looked back at what they now, at age 40, regard as 20 wasted years. Sure, these frequently bright and talented women have a fine career. But most women are not programmed to prefer a great career to a great man and a family. They feel they were sold a bill of goods at college and by the media. And they were. It turns out that most women without a man do worse in life than fish without bicycles.

Good Grief. No, Airplanes Don't "Evolve" by Natural Law.

Human designs do change over time, but only with mindful intent. Intelligently guided change is not evolution in any coherent Darwinian sense. Intelligent-design champion Phillip Johnson's most effective critique of Darwinism began with his focus on its essential nature: that it is unguided, purposeless, aimless, and mindless. This is true of both mutation and natural selection. The human mind doesn't work like Darwinism. Aircraft designers use their minds! They may improve their designs over time, but they always have goals: they know what they want, and apply thought, intention, and determination to reach those goals.

WORLD | To become a ‘perfect dunghill,’ embrace Calvinism? | July 26, 2014

Likewise, it can be argued that Calvin’s theology has served as a great engine that has empowered the church since the Reformation in its task of world evangelization. One can point, for example, to Jonathan Edwards, America’s greatest theologian, who preached a decidedly Reformed soteriology. Edwards’s preaching animated the First Great Awakening in the 1740s in America, and he developed a strategy for prayer that was crucial in later periods of revival and missionary endeavor in the eighteenth century. In fact, he himself later served as a missionary to the Indians on the rough and rugged frontier of western Massachusetts.[27] Or one can single out Samuel Pearce, an unabashed Calvinist, who was a domestic “rope holder” for William Carey and his colleagues in their mission to Bengal and who exemplified a Calvinistic Baptist missionary spiri­tuality.[28] Largely because of Andrew Fuller’s biography of Pearce, the mission-minded piety of Pearce came to be regarded as exem­plary not only by the Calvinistic Baptist community to which he belonged but also by other evangelical traditions of the day, such as the Methodists.

I gave him the same answer I gave him before, ‘Normally, same as always.’ Only this time, he asked a new question: ‘What does normal mean?’ I explained it meant one to three hours of sleep each night. Since I was 12 or 13 years old, I have never slept more than that. That’s normal for me! The counselor had me tested for sleep apnea, prescribed a CPAP oxygen machine, and for the last three nights I have slept for eight hours and feel like a new man.”

WORLD | Driver ticketed for duckling rescue | Allie Hulcher | July 26, 2014

Why did the ducklings cross the road? A New Hampshire woman didn’t ask questions when she had to slam on her brakes Friday to avoid hitting some downy baby ducks. Another car had already hit and killed the mother duck and other babies. The woman, 33-year-old Hallie Bibeau, pulled over in the median, called 911, and captured the two surviving ducklings. A state trooper issued Bibeau a ticket for stopping in the median, an action officials say should be reserved for emergencies—duckling rescues don’t qualify. The ducklings were taken to a wildlife rescue in Maine, where one of them died. Bibeau plans to fight the $44 ticket.

http://www.fightingforthefaith.com/scripture-catechesis-and-prayer-saturday-july-26th.html

The Lord's Prayer We have now heard what we must do and believe, in which things the best and happiest life consists. Now follows the third part, how we ought to pray. For since we are so situated that no man can perfectly keep the Ten Commandments, even though we have begun to believe, and since the devil with all his power, together with the world and our own flesh, resists our endeavors, nothing is so necessary as that we should continually resort to the ear of God, call upon Him, and pray to Him, that He would give, preserve, and increase in us faith and the fulfillment of the Ten Commandments, and that He would remove everything that is in our way and opposes us therein. But that we might know what and how to pray, our Lord Christ has Himself taught us both the mode and the words, as we shall see. But before we explain the Lord's Prayer part by part, it is most necessary first to exhort and incite people to prayer, as Christ and the apostles also have done. And the first matter is to know that it is our duty to pray because of God's commandment. For thus we heard in the Second Commandment: Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord, thy God, in vain, that we are there required to praise that holy name, and call upon it in every need, or to pray.

Can Christianity pass the scrutiny of a cold-case detective? - LIFE 107.1

J. Warner Wallace is indeed a cold-case homicide detective, a Christian case maker and an author. Jim was a conscientious and vocal atheist through his undergraduate and graduate work in Design and Architecture (CSULB and UCLA); he always considered himself to be an “evidentialist”. His experience in law enforcement only served to strengthen his conviction that truth is tied directly to evidence. But at the age of thirty-five, J. Warner took a serious and expansive look at the evidence for the Christian Worldview and determined that Christianity was demonstrably true.

46 Where Did these Minimal Facts about the Resurrection Come From? - Stand to Reason Blog

To answer this question in my case, what began as a rather modest attempt to update my resurrection bibliography grew by large increments until it developed into a full-blown attempt to catalog an overview of recent scholarship. The study dominated five straight years of my research time, as well as long intermittent stretches after that. Apparently, I was not very successful at drawing boundaries! I pursued an ongoing study that classified at least the major publications on these topics, continuing on through other representative sources. I counted a very wide spectrum of scholarly views, tracing the responses to about 140 sub-issues or questions related to the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus. My bibliography is presently at about 3400 sources and counting, published originally in French, German, or English. Initially I read and catalogued the majority of these publications, charting the representative authors, positions, topics, and so on, concentrating on both well-known and obscure writers alike, across the entire skeptical to liberal to conservative spectrum. As the number of sources grew, I moved more broadly into this research, trying to keep up with the current state of resurrection research.
