Yes, Christians Are Hypocrites—If by “Hypocrite” You Mean “Sinner”

Andy Bannister explains that, contrary to Christopher Hitchens’s claim, religion isn’t what poisons everything. The problem is much deeper, more pervasive, and far more personal. The problem is us. We poison everything. And, as it happens, that is precisely why we need Jesus. Far from contradicting Christianity, the existence of...

The Story of Iran’s Church in Two Sentences

As a result, more Iranians have become Christians in the last 20 years than in the previous 13 centuries put together since Islam came to Iran. In 1979, there were an estimated 500 Christians from a Muslim background in Iran. Today, there are hundreds of thousands—some say more than 1 million. Whatever the exact number, many Iranians are turning to Jesus as Lord and Savior.

The Gospel Coalition 2017 National Conference

In this workshop, we'll talk about the Rev. Oscar Pfister, an evangelical Protestant pastor, who was a close associate and friend of Sigmund Freud. Although Freud respected Pfister as both a cleric and a scholar, Pfister focused on points of his agreement with Freud's research and psychoanalysis rather than making much of the faulty presuppositions in Freud's worldview. Most disturbingly, it seems as though this "man of God" whom Freud and his whole family clearly loved, never insisted on the gospel's demands on Freud's life. Not only was Freud never converted, he was lulled into thinking there were powerful areas of overlap between his worldview and Pfister's. The story is a cautionary tale for those who mistake "relational evangelism" and "cultural engagement" for gospel-oriented worldview apologetics predicated on incommensurable presuppositions.

Prayers of the People form - Rise

Also read this volume so that you can be pray for this vision of the Rise campaign: that New York would be a more just, beautiful, merciful, and kind city because the people within it are living more and more for God and their neighbor. What if the culture rising out of New York had the gospel in its DNA? Because of New York’s influence as a leading global city, it could catalyze renewal far beyond just one city. This is a vision that must begin and end in prayer. It begins in prayer because we could never accomplish all we hope to do in our own power. It ends in prayer because only that way will we increasingly become like our God who calls for the peace and flourishing of all.

Reasons To Believe : Dark Energy and Gravity Withstand Tests

Before a high fidelity test of f(R) theory was possible, because of numerous other tests of general relativity and dark energy, we had a very high degree of scientific certainty that a God beyond space and time created the universe and personally designed it for the benefit of human beings. Now, thanks to the recent precision test of f(R) theory we possess even greater scientific certainty. When the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope begins accumulating observations, we will gain the opportunity to develop still greater scientific certainty. As the Bible repeatedly infers, the more we study the realm of nature, the more evidence we will accumulate for the handiwork of God.

Can a Person Be Argued into the Kingdom of God? - Christian Research Institute

Furthermore, the problem is not that people cannot believe, it is that they will not believe. In other words, it is often not a matter of the mind but a matter of the will. Thus, the maxim: “A man convinced against his will is of the same opinion still.” As Jesus Christ declared, “This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that his deeds will be exposed” (John 3:19–20). The Christian faith is reasonable, but reason alone will not compel a person to embrace Christ.

Did Jesus Contradict Himself by Calling People Fools?

Jesus did not focus just on an individual’s actions such as murder but also on the heart and attitude behind those actions. A heart full of anger toward someone can lead to insults, name calling, and even murder. In other words, murder is not the only symptom of a corrupted heart, which is the main point Jesus made.

18 America's Extreme Abortion Laws

But it gets even more interesting and relevant to current debates. The study also found that over sixty percent of Americans oppose taxpayer funding for abortions, and nearly eight in ten want abortion clinics held to the same standard as other outpatient surgery centers—a rule the U.S. Supreme Court just struck down in Texas. And speaking of the Supreme Court, seventy percent of those surveyed say doctors who perform abortions should be required to have hospital admitting privileges—another Texas requirement declared unconstitutional by the Court. And most remarkably, Americans agree by a margin of 20 percent that religious healthcare providers should not be forced to perform abortions against their deeply-held beliefs.

Why we should question Christianity

As a follower of Christ and someone who engages in apologetics regularly, I am always open to questions about why Christianity is true and so forth. I think there are many people who genuinely seek truth and answers but nonetheless they do have some intellectual hurdles to get by. I was one of those people. I didn’t have a Damascus road experience, I had a slow, gradual movement into Christianity that was through what I think was logic, reason and a lot of questions. Because of how I was brought into Christianity, I want to help other people who are like me, or were like me, in that I can possibly answer questions and by the grace of God, help people into the Christian faith, it’s where I feel I’ve been called to be.

Islam, Child Marriage, and the Washington Post (David Wood) The Washington Post recently posted an article titled: “Six-Year-Old Afghan Girl Reportedly Sold in Marriage.” The article claims that child marriage is an Afghan tribal practice that violates the teachings of Islam. Apparently, writers at the Washington Post have never studied Islam. In Islam's most trusted sources on the life of Muhammad, we read: Sahih Muslim 3480—It was narrated that Aishah said: “The Prophet married me when I was six years old, and consummated the marriage with me when I was nine years old.” Sahih Muslim 3482—It was narrated from Aishah that: “The Messenger of Allah married her when she was six years old and consummated the marriage with her when she was nine years old, and he died when she was eighteen years old.” Here's a link to the Washington Post article: For more on Muhammad and the Qur'an, watch these videos by David Wood: "Who Killed Muhammad?": "The Sheepgate Conspiracy": "A Brief History of the Qur'an": https://www.

Christians Need to Recover the Lost Art of Patience

So how do we learn patience? Patience is about love and value. The more we love others, the easier it is to be patient with them. The more we value and respect someone, the longer it takes them to get on our nerves. What often makes us impatient is that the person we love the most, in many scenarios, is ourselves. The time we value most is our own. The dreams we care most about fulfilling are ours. Impatience comes because, especially as Christians, we care and think way too much about ourselves. A little humility, a little consideration and value for others would go a long way in building the foundation of our patience.

Corporate Worship Is a Call to Love

Instead of minimizing others, and seeking to block them out to focus on Jesus, we can ask if we have needlessly offended anyone, or withheld harmony. Are we at peace with our fellow worshipers? It’s a cue to check our hearts. Worship of God in the old covenant was not meant to be divorced from love for others (Matthew 5:23–24); neither is it in the new.

Count the Cost in the New America

Jesus calls his disciples to be innocent as doves and wise as serpents (Matthew 10:16). Christians should be compassionate and tender toward all people, especially unbelievers, because all are made in God’s image (Genesis 1:27) and, without Christ, are sheep without a shepherd (Matthew 9:36). Yet, Christians must be bold and clear regarding biblical truth, never calling evil good and good evil (Isaiah 5:20). Every conversation is an opportunity to plant seeds of the gospel — with clarity, compassion, confidence, and gentleness — in the lives of those around us, trusting in the work of the Holy Spirit to bring lasting conviction and change.

Live | RZIM

Live stream Abdu Murray, Sean McDowell, and a Q&A panel July 29 7:00pm-9:20pm EDT:

Big Families Lift Burdens

First, God has given us plenty of land to go around. The approximate population of the world (as of summer, 2016) is more than 7.3 billion. This number of people could fit fairly comfortably within the landmass of Texas, with room not only to live, but to farm a small plot of land. The idea that the world is overcrowded is based primarily on the overcrowding within the large cities of our planet, which is indeed a problem. But to suggest that the overcrowding of cities is a sign of the overpopulation of the planet is like concluding that there must be an epidemic of killer whales in our nation’s swimming pools after seeing Shamu at SeaWorld. It simply doesn’t hold water.

Establishmentarianism - R.C. Sproul Jr.

The biggest word we knew when I was growing up was antidisestablishmentarianism. So we’ve got antidisestablishmentarianism, establishmentarianism, and anti-establishmentarianism. So let’s just make it simple and stick with the smallest version: establishmentarianism. Before we do, let me tell you why it’s come up. I’m not just reaching into the big bag of Isms and this one happened to come out. It’s actually somewhat in the news. There’s been controversy of late on the political scene about the issue of whether or not Muslims in this country should be at liberty to build mosques. Actually, I have some sympathy and understanding for why the controversy exists. It’s true that sometimes, mosques, which from one perspective are houses of worship, sort of end up becoming sea beds for terrorism. Essentially, fortresses in the midst of a literally, very violent war in our country. But the issue is, they are also houses of worship.

The Latest in Transanity: More Male Mothers and the End of the Male Body | The Stream

For Strangio, these “factually wrong and dangerous” distinctions are causing untold pain to the trans community, since they do not conform to these rules and thus are made social outcasts from birth. “And yet,” Strangio bemoans, “we maintain our investment in the narrative that our bodies are male or female at birth. But it is simply untenable to retain these narratives when we know our bodies to be far more complex and beautiful.”

We Can Corroborate the Gospels without Verifying Every Detail | Cold Case Christianity

Corroborative evidence is always limited; it always addresses some small aspect of the event under consideration. Jurors then extrapolate from this corroboration to determine if the broader testimony is reliable. They do this after they assess the testimony with the three other questions I described in Cold Case Christianity (“Were the witnesses present?” “Were the witnesses accurate?” and “Were the witnesses biased?”). We can’t expect the corroborative evidence to establish every claim made by the witness. Instead, the corroborative evidence provides us with another important piece of the puzzle related to reliability. At some point, we then have to trust what the witnesses say about the event.

'Story of God with Morgan Freeman' Gets a Season 2

I had quite a journey last season, but not just in miles covered. I met incredible people who opened my eyes and my mind to new ideas and new ways of thinking about faith, the world and all of humanity. I barely scratched the surface of what we can learn, and I’m looking forward to continuing this search for the meaning of life and religion and everything in between.

Be Known for What You’re for, Not Just What You’re Against

Do Christians know what they actually are for? Can they articulate it in a graceful and non-judging way? Do they understand God's story and what he is actually trying to do? Can they communicate the positives of God's plan for sex, money, justice, marriage, humility, economics, etc.? Can they continue to watch the secularization of society and not fight against it but instead offer a new way full of life and hope and peace? Will their lives reflect theses truths or will it reflect compromise and hypocrisy?

You Can Love Ministry and Miss Jesus

“Do not rejoice in this,” — that you made so many friends in Jesus’s name, or sacrificed to help the poor, or were outspoken for the cause of justice, or even led so many to saving faith — “but rejoice that your names are written in heaven” (Luke 10:20). Know the deepest, surest, highest pleasure anyone has ever had — deeper than the happiest and most romantic marriages, surer than the most majestic mountains or the most beautiful beaches, and higher than the greatest miracles or successes in ministry.

Why ‘No Creed But the Bible’ Is Misguided

Following this chapter, Bird provides a brief critique of the Creed. He observes, as many others have, that the Apostles’ Creed moves from Jesus’s birth directly to his death “with no reference to all of his life, teaching, and earthly mission” (85). While Bird’s point is well taken, I do wonder why he felt the need to evaluate something that seems to be outside the scope of both the Apostles’ Creed and this book. He even proceeds to suggest the omission is “attributable to the fact that the life of Jesus was not a major point of contention in the second-century church, whereas more ferocious debates were raged over Jesus’s identity and his relationship to God the Father” (85). And earlier he observes: “Most of the creeds were written in response to some heresy or doctrinal controversy” (23). In light of these explanations I wonder if it’s right to call the Creed deficient, as Bird does, or if it’s better to simply understand the Creed as historically situated.

4 Ways Christians Can Be Better with Their Money

I was apprehensive to click this article link, because I didn't want to open it to hear the, although true and valid - overdone list of tithing, giving, saving, and the over-usage of the word "stewardship"(lucky for you, it was only used once;) ) I think your list covers the most basic approach to getting on top of your finances, which is appreciated by those who are already overwhelmed by their debt. To be advised that I need to just give more and invest wisely in markets I know nothing about only causes me more hopelessness than when I started my journey to monetary security. What I gather from your article is that there are simple (if not easy) steps one can take NOW to getting above water with their money, and that sticking with it will develop a habit that makes these things easier and easier to accomplish. I think we can forget sometimes that the practical steps we take to being responsible with our funds is an act of worship, even when it's not tithing or being spent directly on ministry. Fiscal responsibility IS obedience to God, in whatever shape it takes. Thank you for sharing this article.

What Does the Bible Say about Defending the Faith?

In addition to this passage, Jude 3 also calls us to “contend for the faith once for all delivered to the saints.” Finally, apologetics plausibly fits in with the general biblical command to love God with our minds. This command is found in Mark 12:29-30: “love the Lord your God…with all your mind.” Romans 12:2, as well, tells us to “be transformed by the renewing of your mind.” Certainly one way to be so transformed is by understanding how what we know about the world supports the Christian worldview, something we will gain through studying apologetics.

The Gospels Are Reliable Even With Many Redactions | Cold Case Christianity

I’m often asked to make the case for the reliability of the Gospels in spite of the presence of scribal variants throughout the text. Remember that criminal courts do not require eyewitnesses to be inerrant to be considered reliable . In order to illustrate the trustworthiness of the text, I typically offer the following hypothetical. First, allow the skeptic to identify all the textual variants in the Gospels based on a comparison of all available manuscripts. Next, to make the point more dramatically, allow the skeptic to remove not only the variant word or phrase, but the entire verse in which the variant appears. This would require the removal of hundreds of verses, resulting in a manuscript that is much smaller than the text we have today. Finally, for the sake of argument, allow the skeptic to randomly remove additional verses until 50% of the text we have today have been redacted. Skeptics often claim that the presence of minor variants that account for approximately ½% of the text justify their skepticism in much more of the text. To dramatize the ineffectiveness of t

God works in your life according to your faith. The Bible says, “Without faith it’s impossible to please God” and “Whatsoever is not of faith is sin” and “According to your faith it will be done unto you.” So what are you doing in faith? You need to ask yourself every day when you get up, “God, what can I do today that will require faith?” That’s an important question, because that’s what’s going to please God.


I'm going to comment on an op-ed by Wayne Grudem:

Apostolic Church celebrates 100th anniversary - premier

"As you look at the Church today it very much carries the DNA of its founding fathers but its expressed culturally through the various nations and languages where the Church has been rooted."

Examining Jesus by the Historical Method: Enemy Attestation

“Consequently, to get rid of the report, Nero fastened the guilt and inflicted the most exquisite tortures on a class hated for their abominations, called Christians by the populace. Christus, from whom the name had its origin, suffered the extreme penalty during the reign of Tiberius at the hands of one of our procurators, Pontius Pilatus, and a most mischievous superstition, thus checked for the moment, again broke out not only in Judaea, the first source of the evil, but even in Rome, where all things hideous and shameful from every part of the world find their centre and become popular. Accordingly, an arrest was first made of all who pleaded guilty; then, upon their information, an immense multitude was convicted, not so much of the crime of firing the city, as of hatred against mankind. Mockery of every sort was added to their deaths. Covered with the skins of beasts, they were torn by dogs and perished, or were nailed to crosses, or were doomed to the flames and burnt, to serve as a nightly illumination, when daylight had expired.” [2]

Seth Dunn’s “Pulpit and Pen” Hit Piece on Nabeel Qureshi Seth Dunn is a Christian blogger who writes for “Pulpit and Pen,” a website founded by JD Hall that claims to promote "discernment." Dunn recently posted an article titled: “Resetting the Evangelical Mindset on Nabeel Qureshi.” Since Dunn's hit piece on Nabeel Qureshi is filled with blunders, we can only wonder how the writers for "Pulpit and Pen" have convinced themselves that they are champions of "discernment." In this video, David Wood goes through Dunn's entire article, point by point, showing that Dunn's attacks against Nabeel Qureshi are based on sheer ignorance. Because Dunn is planning to run for President of the Southern Baptist Convention, his lack of discernment should be a concern for Christians.

The Death of God Is Greatly Exaggerated: An Interview with Eric Metaxas

If religion in America is dying, then someone will have to explain Eric Metaxas. The happy warrior for a muscular Christianity displays nothing but confidence about the durability of belief in modern America. In fact, he seems to hope more Christians will ignore the pressure—from the media, the courts and other liberal bastions—to keep clear of the public sphere. The message has made him especially popular with evangelical Christians.

An Interview with Daniel B. Wallace on the New Testament Manuscripts

As Craig Blomberg has written, “Dan Wallace has clearly become evangelical Christianity’s premier active textual critic today.” In addition to teaching New Testament at Dallas Theological Seminary, he serves as executive director of the cutting-edge Center for the Study of New Testament Manuscripts (CSNTM). He recently made quite a stir when he announced that next year an academic publication will reveal the discovery of a first-century fragment from the Gospel of Mark. (See, for example, this interview with Hugh Hewitt.)
