Texas AG Reveals Existence of Unreleased Planned Parenthood Video That ‘Will Be Difficult for Many People to See’

AUSTIN, Texas (TheBlaze/AP) -- Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton said Wednesday that his office has received video taken in a Planned Parenthood clinic he says is consistent with other stealthily recorded footage that has Republicans again taking on the biggest abortion provider in the U.S. While testifying before...

Watch a 1,000-Member Rock Ensemble Play a Foo Fighters Song

An Italian group called Rockin’ 1000 organized a massive group of musicians to play the Foo Fighters song “Learn to Fly” in a massive outdoor performance. Of course, they filmed the whole thing, and it’s pretty awesome. The stunt was part of an effort to get the band to come play a concert in Cesena, Italy. How could they say no?

Lexus Releases Another Glimpse at Its Hoverboard

Yes, the book serves theology by offering an ethic rooted in the biblical text, following a number of lines of biblical theology (e.g., Christ as the new Adam and true Israel), the theme of our kingly/priestly status and vocation redeemed and restored in Christ, who has made us a “kingdom of priests” who will “reign upon the earth.” It discusses themes important for theology, such as the implications of the Trinity for ethics and for community; it examines various attributes of God (e.g., God as humble) that have a bearing on how we are conduct our lives. And theologians, who typically appreciate systematization, can benefit from some of our discussion of common themes—law, love, sin, etc.—as well as from the philosophical engagement of themes in biblical ethics.

A Seminary Descends Into Sexual Anarchy

There I note: "We are more accepting of homosexuality today because our sexual morals are lower, not because we are more enlightened. Put another way, the gay revolution is not the successor of the civil rights movement of the 1960s; it is the successor of the sexual revolution of the 1960s. Getting a grasp on this, we get a grasp on where our culture is really headed, helping us recognize that our embrace of homosexuality (even the more committed, less promiscuous kind) is part of our larger descent into sexual anarchy."

How likely is it for blind forces to sequence a functional protein by chance?

If you are building a protein for the FIRST TIME, you have to get it right all at once – not by building up to it gradually using supposed Darwinian mechanisms. That’s because there is no replication before you have the first replicator. The first replicator cannot rely on explanations that require replication to already be in place.

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.

10 Books Everyone Should Read by 25(ish)

You may find the Bible complicated or confusing or terribly boring. You may think you’ve learned everything there is to know in that book, back in your VBS or Sunday School days. Or, maybe you don’t know much about it at all and the whole prospect is daunting. But if you are seeking God, seeking true life, seeking the bigger story, you have to read it. Don’t study it, don’t pick it apart, don’t tattoo it on your bicep. Just read it. Read it all the way through, read it again. Read it often and repeatedly. In it you’ll find words of life, clarity, meaning, direction, purpose. But more than anything—you’ll find in the Bible the voice of God and the closeness of real relationship with Him.

Can hipster Christianity save churches from decline?

Many don’t want the church to be like a sceney bar or a stylish boutique. They want the church to be the church: an institution that embraces awkward people, confronts sin, transforms lives, subverts the sovereignty of self, serves others and provides meaning more substantial than the ephemera of fickle fads.

The Atheist Who Didn't Exist is designed to expose some of the loose threads on the cardigan of atheism, tug a little, and see what happens. Blending humour with serious thought, Andy Bannister helps the reader question everything, assume nothing and, above all, recognise lazy scepticism and bad arguments. Be an atheist by all means: but do be a thought-through one.

Four-time NBA All Star Vin Baker is working at Starbucks

“When you make choices and decisions and think that it will never end, and then you get into spending and addiction and more spending, it’s a definite formula for losing…. I would insist that you surround yourself with the person you trust the absolute most, someone who can tell you, ‘You’re wrong, don’t buy that, don’t go there, that person’s no good.’ I would also say be able to monitor every single dime that comes out of your accounts as if you’re a Starbucks barista. My check here I know exactly where my money goes. Don’t trust it with an accountant or a family friend. Make sure you’re aware and be responsible because next thing you know people are stealing from you.”

Mission: Impossible

It hit me that the fundamental changes that needed to take place in the hearts of my children, at the deepest level of thought and desire, which would then lead to lasting change in their behavior, would only ever happen by means of the powerful, forgiving and transforming grace of the Lord Jesus Christ. I began to realize that as a parent, I wasn't called to be the producer of change, but only a willing tool in the powerful hands of a God who alone has the power and willingness to undo us and rebuild us again.

Watching Sandra Bland - The New Yorker

In the age of dashboard video cameras and cell-phone-captured arrests, there is so much that we see and can’t ever unsee. Police in Staten Island putting Eric Garner in a choke hold, while he gasps, over and over, that he can’t breathe.* The Texas state trooper threatening to use his Taser on Sandra Bland (a driver he’d pulled over for the infraction of failing to signal when she changed lanes), shouting “I’m going to light you up!” Without the Garner video, there would have been eyewitnesses but no seemingly incontrovertible testimony. Without the camera on Officer Brian Encinia’s dashboard, most of us might never have heard what happened to Sandra Bland. The existence of such evidence helps in investigations and prosecutions; it’s supposed to be a deterrent to both bad behavior on the part of the cops and false allegations of police abuse. But it does not  guarantee  either better behavior or justice. A grand jury declined to indict the police officers in the Eric Garner case. More broadly, it puts us in a strange, morally exigent position: we can’t say we didn’t see, we never knew; we have no plausible deniability.

Best Advice for Dating Couples

Rishmawy, who previously served as director of college and young adult ministries at Trinity United Presbyterian Church in Orange County, California, offers “one general piece” of advice for couples desiring a God-honoring relationship: be committed to the local church. This, he says, is a key marker of a healthy Christian relationship: “The biggest job is encouraging the other person to be in the church, plugged in, butt in the pew, listening to preaching, [and] in godly relationships with other people.” Failure in this doesn’t bode well, Greear adds. According to Rishmawy the greatest danger isn’t sexual immorality but turning the other person or the relationship into an idol since other sins flow from this source.

“A Lot of People Want Intact Hearts These Days” — Planned Parenthood, Abortion, and the Conscience of a Nation

The video reveals Dr. Deborah Nucatola, senior director of medical services for Planned Parenthood, discussing the intentional harvesting of organs and other tissues from babies aborted in Planned Parenthood clinics. While reaching with her fork for salad, Dr. Nucatola openly tells a group she believes to be medical researchers that there is a great demand for fetal livers, but “a lot of people want intact hearts these days.”

From the Lunch Table to the Dissection Table: The Latest Planned Parenthood Pricing Parts Video

StemExpress, a for-profit company partnered with over 30 abortion clinics, including Planned Parenthood, to harvest and sell aborted baby parts and provide a “financial benefit” to Planned Parenthood clinics, is attempting to use meritless litigation to cover-up this illegal baby parts trade, suppress free speech, and silence the citizen press reporting on issues of burning concern to the American public. They are not succeeding—their initial petition was rejected by the court, and their second petition was eviscerated to a narrow and contingent order about an alleged recording pending CMP’s opportunity to respond. The Center for Medical Progress follows all applicable laws in the course of our investigative journalism work and will contest all attempts from Planned Parenthood and their allies to silence our First Amendment rights and suppress investigative journalism.

5 Reasons the Church Should Embrace Science

He meant well, and I appreciated his concern and prayer for protection, but I was disheartened. It was not the first time (or the last time) that a mature, well-meaning believer has reacted to my career choice with hesitation or outright concern. I’ll admit, my experience in academia is that it is not a warm, fuzzy place for Christians. Academia appears to be a place where faith is not welcome. But it certainly does not have to be a place where faith dies. In fact, I’m calling on Christians to pursue the sciences.

Go Big or Go Home: How "Big" Has Invaded the Church

If we could all step back and loosen our grip on our own hope and dreams—our own preferences—we might see the big picture. The church is shrinking in the best possible way: folks who never really bought into the Jesus-thing are bowing out, which means we are entering a season where those in the local church actually really love the universal Church. The brimming faithful from Africa and Asia and Latin America are showing us the living God at work in “all nations” and now here in our own churches, where they are being sent to help create a new spark. And the group we call the “Dones,” as in, done with church and all the bureaucratic-box-thinking? Well they’re loose in the field and starting to gather, wrestling with how God is calling them to live out their faith in a new way.

She’s Having a Fetus

I’m pregnant. At what point in my pregnancy is it called a baby? Women have different feelings about when to call it a baby. For some women, it is a baby from the first moment the pregnancy is confirmed or even suspected. For other women, the pregnancy doesn’t become a baby until much later. What’s most important is how the woman feels about it. Most medical authorities, including Planned Parenthood, agree that it becomes a baby after birth when it takes its first breath. But we value women’s differing feelings about when to use the words embryo, fetus, or baby.

Arsonists Still Love to Burn Churches

Since the law was passed, the ATF has investigated the origin of all reported fires at houses of worship for possible arson. The motivation for an arson is not always clear. But there are many instances where racism, religious hatred, or vandalism play a big factor. African American churches are more frequently targeted than other houses of worship. The ATF's results have been reported to a national database of church fires.

Cognitive Dissonance with Life and Death: Thoughts on Planned Parenthood

These wake-up call videos have done more than just energize the weary pro-life advocates—those in the trenches who continue to believe (naively, some cynics would say) that a day is coming when society will once again protect the human rights of preborn children. The Planned Parenthood scandal has also brought to life many “regular” pro-life people who are not usually engaged with this issue on a daily basis. They have been living their lives, minding their own business, not wanting to be zealous crusaders. But they find it impossible not to talk about this horror. They are speaking out—on Facebook, on Twitter, and in conversations with family or friends. They are not dissuaded when Planned Parenthood claims, “The comments were taken out of context!” (This is an especially strange defense considering that both videos can be easily viewed in full, with no editing). Instead, citizens are asking, “In what context would these comments ever be acceptable?”

Bow Down! Here's What You Need to Know About Vine Star Zach King (And Secrets of His Incredible Illusionist Videos)

He can make traffic disappear , turn laundry into a kitten , and make emojis come to life . Known as the Final Cut King, Zach King is a bona fide Vine star. While other popular Vine users post six-second pranks, mash-ups or jokes, King's Vines are also comedic, but they stand out from the crowd with his astonishing illusions that use major motion-picture-quality special effects. In a recent Vine, King grabs the Apple logo from his computer and turns it into a luscious silver three-dimensional apple and takes a bite out of it. "I definitely got lead poisoning, I think," he tells PEOPLE. "I looked for edible spray paint and I couldn't find any." In another video he turns a lazy friend acting like a couch potato into actual potatoes. And in his most popular Vine, he takes a souvenir from Paris with him: the Eiffel Tower . King started on YouTube but soon realized that his short relatable videos were more shareable on a platform like Vine – and he was right. His videos have over a billion loops on Vine, and he's racked up over 3.4 million followers at the time of this post.

Not so—or let’s say, not at all so—with the crass ruling handed down on July 14 by the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver against the Little Sisters of the Poor, a historic Roman Catholic relief organization, in a case involving Obamacare’s contraceptive mandate. Now we’re talking about calculated efforts to compel folks to adopt a particular system of belief, or to pay massive fines for their noncompliance. Now we’re talking not about incidental slipups on the way to justice. We’re talking here about applications of the law deliberately designed to override the consciences of our citizens.

Ten Shifts We’ve Made Today - Tim Elmore

Think for a moment about the changes that have taken place over the last few generations. It sounds cliché, but we’re definitely living in a new day. As I observe the realities of our time, I notice people have the same needs we did 50 years ago — the only difference is that we’ve found new ways to meet them. Some good, some… well, not so good. At times we actually drift into a “new normal” without noticing. For instance:
