REBOOT | Youth Apologetics

Once a year, REBOOT meets in the centre of London to explore questions such as ‘How can we know God exists?’, ‘Why does God allow suffering?’ and ‘Hasn’t science disproved God?’. REBOOT provides a place for young people from 12-18 years old, with or without any faith or church background, to raise their objections and investigate different perspectives. Through its annual conference, online resources, and speaking invitations, REBOOT aims to equip young people to understand and be able to answer some of these big questions for themselves. Our team from the Zacharias Trust and the OCCA [the Oxford Centre for Christian Apologetics] want you to have confidence in what you believe, and the chance to be honest about your doubts. Since its launch in 2013, REBOOT has welcomed over 1000 young people, and this year we are excited to see more of you than ever!

Yes, Gay Marriage Hurts Me Personally

It makes no sense. That is, until you come to understand that liberals desire not to fortify or strengthen the family, but to dismember it. This is purely a game of power and destruction. Why do you think their victory on Friday prompted such vulgar, bloodthirsty gloating? Did black Americans react that way when they achieved civil rights? Did women respond like this when they won the vote? No, because these groups were actually fighting to participate in, and embolden, constitutional liberties. Modern liberals, for their part, wage a war not of freedom but sabotage. Now with their triumph last week, they act like marauding pillagers who just sacked a village and burned it to the ground. They brag like conquering tyrants, not warriors for liberty. Just ask the Catholic priest who tried to walk by a gay rally this weekend in New York only to be spat on by two gay bullies.

Your Stress is Harming Your Spiritual Life

I set a challenge for myself this year that you may want to consider if your stress level is high. I’m starting every day by writing down five things I am thankful for and five things I know to be true about God’s character. I’ve been doing this for a few weeks now, and though I can’t say my stress is completely gone and everything is roses, I have felt more aware of how good my life is and more aware of God’s presence in it. Reminding myself of these things has allowed me to be less skeptical of God and more trusting of Him. And in that trust, there has been peace.

She Is Me

In the same way husbands should love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as Christ does the church, because we are members of his body. “Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.” This mystery is profound, and I am saying that it refers to Christ and the church. However, let each one of you love his wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband.

How to Lead When You’re Not in Charge

If Ethel keeps stealing your bologna and cheese sandwiches from the communal fridge every day, don’t complain to everyone but Ethel. If there’s a problem, exercise the biblical principle of addressing the person with whom you have a problem with first. Make every effort to listen, seek understanding, speak the truth in love and make amends. If the problem persists, bring in a boss or professional mediator. Be the person that seeks to resolve conflict well, not stir it up or let it fester.

Gay Marriage, Abortion, and the Bigger Picture

Though many evangelicals oppose abortion and gay marriage as violations of natural law, they are significantly different issues with different social consequences. As Christians, we recognize the value of God-given life; when society authorizes the deprivation of life, we commit the gravest possible injustice. The results of abortion are as immediate, visceral, and individual as they are sweeping: an estimated 20 percent of pregnancies in the US end in abortion, over 56 million since 1973.

New Audio: ‘Homosexuality and the Bible: Getting the Story Straight’

What does the New Testament really say, and how should we understand the issues at stake? Did Jesus ever address the topic? Was Paul familiar with the sort of consensual, committed same-sex relationships we see today or was he merely indicting exploitative aberrations (e.g., rape, pederasty, rampant promiscuity)? Did the apostle have a category for what we now call “orientation”? Might he have disliked homosexuality because he feared it threatened male, patriarchal dominance of women?

How Dante's Poetry Rescued Rod Dreher from Despair

How Dante Can Save Your Life is, in effect, a sequel to Dreher’s 2013 best-selling memoir, The Little Way of Ruthie Leming . In that book, he narrated the marvelous life and crushing death, from cancer, of his schoolteacher sister. Unlike most tales of lives that end too soon, Ruthie’s story stood apart. It taught Dreher that he was wrong to regard his small-town upbringing as benighted and constricting; that he had been wrong to flee it for the bright lights and high times of big cities.

Is Debt a Sin Issue?

Been there, still there too. Try a consumer debt management agency if you need to restructure your credit cards as they can negotiate a lower interest rate and provide a payoff time table. Also, don't go in for the whole "beat yourself up" routine over past mistakes. Debt is not a sin to repent of, but a problem to be understood and corrected. No doubt you get that now and will make very different decisions going forward. I sure am. You move forward in baby steps - don't add to your debt, negotiate lower monthly payments with places that will let you, get rid of or rethink any nonessential loans (trade in for an older car to get out of a payment), reduce a 401k contribution (for a while) to get more cash flow, write down every expense for 2 months to really know where your money is going and then budget, and get the help of a consumer debt agency. Keep at month by month, and give yourself permission to splurge every once in a while so you don't go insane!!

Two Readings of Scripture, Two Views of Jesus

Other Christians, however, see the Bible as stained by human frailty and riddled with error, requiring more enlightened thinking to discern the good parts from the bad. These Christians are embarrassed by and denounce parts of the same book that they read in weddings and funerals, sermons and Sunday school classes as a model for faith and life. They see no contradiction in quoting Paul’s lyrical description of love in 1 Corinthians 13 while at the same time denouncing his instruction on gender roles in 1 Corinthians 11. They fear no inconsistency quoting Jesus when he says “Judge not” in Matthew 7:1, though simultaneously judging Jesus calling people “pigs” and “dogs” in Matthew 7:6. Scavenging Scripture selectively like a picky eater at a smorgasbord, they consume only what appeals to their taste and what they have already learned to like.

Happy 4th of July! | RZIM

As one who has come from abroad and made this now my home, I want you to know, many times when I come back from a long journey—and I travel over 200 days a year—I come back home, put my suitcase down, and my wife will tell you I get on my knees and kiss the kitchen floor and thank God that I’m home again. This is a nation that has been blessed of God, empowered for great and significant tasks, and there are thousands and millions who come to its shores to find that kind of succor and hope and the opportunity to succeed and succeed again even when one has failed in several attempts.

Are You Hearing God’s Voice or Your Own?

God usually communicates to us and directs us about His kingdom. Our personal decisions like who to marry, rarely has bearing on His kingdom and we make our own decisions. Using God as an excuse or justification for your own decisions is taking His name in vain. In the Bible when He spoke to people how often was it about His kingdom, how often did He decide for man, I don't know of any examples where God decides for someone what their career or who their partner would be unless it was to advance His kingdom. The closer you get to God the more your desires align, often your desire was first His desire. That's how people are called in to the ministry. When He did decide for Paul, it wasn't a quiet whisper. If you intend a thumbs down back it up with the Bible. The most common example of taking His name in vain rather than taking responsibility for your own free will is after a breakup. Justifying your decisions with His name shows a lack of Christian maturity and lack of knowledge about His character. God is concerned about His kingdom, you're in it, but you have free will. Who I marry is my choice, there is not God ordained plan who I will marry, it is a consequence of my own decisions.

The Existence of the Christian God: The Craig-Curley Debate | Reasonable Faith

2. What's the subject of the debate? He said, in his opening statement, that it was about the Judeo-Christian God, whether that God exists. No, actually, what I had insisted on was that we talk about the existence of the Christian God. It may sound ecumenical and nice to say that Jews and Christians all worship the same God, but that's not true. Christians, because they recognize the authority of the New Testament, are committed to lots of doctrines Jews aren't committed to, most of the doctrines I talked about. I framed my opening statement specifically with Christianity in mind. Judaism and Christianity do have some common problems. Evil is hard to understand in both religions. The relation between religion and morality is hard to understand in both religions. But most of the doctrines I discussed in my opening statement are not doctrines a Jew would feel himself committed to by his Judaism. I know that a lot of Christians don't feel themselves committed to them either. But you notice I didn't cite any biblical passages in support of my attributions of those views to the New Testament.

A Muslim denies Jesus and plays word games

Please notice that this Muslim would not answer my questions. I had already encountered him before, and he refused to read even one article that I asked him to which answered his question.  Unfortunately, I have encountered many Muslims who are like this. And they prefer to ask all sorts of questions and refuse to answer any. Of course, this is rude; and their continued demand of me and other Christians to answer their questions without answering any themselves shows me that they are not interested in true dialogue. Instead, he appears to be interested only in raising objections to Christianity. Please notice that he tries to skirt the issues I raise by asking other questions. Also notice that I tried to answer all his questions, repeatedly. He was quite obviously impolite and disrespectful. Following is the second half of the dialogue that originally dealt with Old Testament appearances of God.  I had referred him repeatedly to The Plurality study , but he refused to read it.  Instead, he demanded that I answer all his questions.  Also, I have corrected typos due to errors in my speech recognition program that I was using.

Why Two? The Question Same-Sex Marriage Activists Cannot Answer | The Stream

I find the mention of “why not one?” particularly relevant. While I recognize the traditional family as the supreme institution in human social structure, I’ve done rough calculations regarding the probability of meeting a suitable spouse within my lifetime, and even considering only two of the most critical parameters, it’s next to nil [1]; and with that in the back of my mind, I cannot help but perceive this evolution of state marriage as to an unreasonable discrimination against single individuals.

Do unemployment benefits discourage people from working?

1: The working poor. People who are employed full time on minimum wage, unable to claim any kind of benefit because they are employed full time and earning the minimum wage, yet living paycheck to paycheck. These people are normally undereducated (dropouts before or at high school) or underemployed (educated but finding no work in their field), with more than one child and some debt. Accounting for child care and tax, they would be better off on benefits, but the waiting period before receiving benefits is so long that the few pounds they have in savings would be long gone before they saw any government money, leaving them and their children on the street.

Terminator Genisys

The first film was most likely intended as a one-off, and that’s nowhere more evident than when Kyle Reese tells the disbelieving police that “nobody goes back [through a time travel portal], nobody else goes through.” This little bit of mythological world building was necessary to keep away any of the inevitable questions surrounding time travel narratives. Why only one Terminator? Why only one time? Why not eliminate Sarah’s parents or grandparents or great-grandparents or great-great grandpare . . . ? Why are the ripples of change caused by time-travel so focused on one person? Why are we sure that in killing this one person that nothing else will change besides the end of the world?

To give insight into the complex, layered decisions women make, HuffPost asked childfree readers to discuss the reasons they have chosen not to have kids and gathered 270 responses here.

46 Jim Crow Comparisons Are Not Apt - Stand to Reason Blog

There is no comparison to Jim Crow laws.  So-called Christians who found ways to continue their unjust discrimination despite equal protection laws had no sound basis in the Bible or in Christian history.  Bigotry had no widespread precedent in the teaching of the church in any place or at any time.  Their use of the Bible was the exception, not the rule.  In fact, the abolition movement came from Christian churches – and reaches back to the very beginning of Christianity and throughout history.  The civil rights movement came from the churches and challenges those Christians who abused the Bible to excuse their racism and abuse of human beings. I watched the movie Selma a couple of days ago.  It shows how support for civil rights was based in the church and supported across racial and denominational groups.  The bigots were the exception in Christianity, not the rule.
