Is the Bible literally true?

Is the Bible literally true? by Rob Phillips Christians are sometimes asked if we believe the Bible is literally true. After all, whether eating Christ’s flesh and drinking His blood is a plunge into cannibalism, or a figurative expression of full devotion, depends on how we understand the language of Scripture. In one sense, we might say the Bible is divinely inspired literature through which God speaks to human beings in our own language. This naturally includes a range of literary devices, from narrative to hyperbole. So, what does it mean to take the Bible “literally”? It means applying a natural reading as the author or speaker intended, with a goal of grasping the writer’s message. This requires context and may include approximations, analogies, metaphors, quotations, parables, apocalyptic language, etc. In contrast, taking the Bible “literalistically” means adhering to a rigid understanding of the primary meaning of words, without allowing for figurative language or a possible range of meanings. An example may help clarify this. In John 10:9, Jesus states, “I am the door.

Reasons To Believe : Is the Whale Pelvis a Vestige of Evolution?

Evolutionary biologists will argue that this insight doesn’t diminish the case for biological evolution one bit. They will maintain that the whale pelvis is a homologous structure, even if it isn’t vestigial, and therefore supports common ancestry. For creationists and ID adherents, on the other hand, this insight is significant. The whale pelvis’ functional role makes it reasonable to argue that this structure is the expression of an archetypical design—the work of a Creator. If the whale pelvis were truly vestigial, this argument would be harder to make.

God Will Bring You Through: Finding Strength for the Storms You Face

In Acts 27, after more than two years of waiting, Paul was finally sailing for Rome. His whole life had led up to this moment. All of his training and experience had prepared him to preach the gospel before Caesar himself. But on the journey from Jerusalem to Rome, Paul faced one of the fiercest storms of his life. And the strength he needed did not come from a new promise, but an old one — a promise God had given to him years before.

God, Are You Still Listening? Hope for Imperfect Prayers

We need God’s help to endure in faithful prayer when things are not going well. The most confident and steadfast saints put no trust in the level of faith they attain, but only trust that Jesus himself is “the founder and perfecter of our faith” (Hebrews 12:2). They know that “the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words” (Romans 8:26). Prayerful saints trust Jesus to be our “advocate with the Father,” who covers our sinful inconsistency and unbelief with the very blood he shed for us (1 John 2:1–2).

For Trevin Wax, The Writerly Life Is Its Own Reward

He watched as the other members of his cohort took Sharpies in hand and wrote down the names of the cities, schools, and companies they were heading to after graduation. Wax, though, had a different approach: When the marker came to him, he filled in his response—not the name of a town, an institution, or the title of his next job. Instead, almost without thinking, he found himself scribbling one short verb: “Write.”

“There may be quite a few things I did wrong as senior pastor of NewSpring Church; however, I preached Jesus every Sunday that I had the privilege to serve at NewSpring Church,” he said. “They can continually talk about my sins. They can talk about how I’m seemingly unrepentant—although I would say in order to determine if someone is repentant, you have to have a relationship with them because it’s hard to call out repentance from the cheap seats—but while I will allow those things to go on, I will not allow anyone to talk about my motives for ministry.”

Do You Regret Your Dating History?

Nearly two thirds of not-yet-married Christians express regret over previous relationships. That means the critical questions in dating are not just whom to date, how to date, and when to wed, but what to do when we get it wrong. And the reality is most of us get it wrong at some point along the way.

Reasons To Believe : My Three Favorite Books on the Trinity

Yet while the Trinity is the governing center of all Christian theological thinking, many believers today have difficulty thinking and speaking about the Triune God in a clear, careful, and biblically oriented manner. If you fit in that category then I recommend three excellent books that will help you gain a greater biblical and theological understanding of God’s Triune nature. You’ll also come to understand why the truth of the Trinity is so important. (By the way, I hope it doesn’t escape you that in one article I recommend three distinct books about God’s eternal oneness and threeness .)

Belonging Is About More Than Biology

Adoptive reciprocity is real but cannot be assumed. For some there’s a natural inclination to respond to family members with an equal measure of hospitality. I’ve felt this mutuality with my own parents; I’ve seen it in my own daughter. This mutuality creates a kind of flow that allows us to embrace others with a similar kind of generosity. But unrequited reciprocity is equally real, the chronic pain of trauma making it difficult for a child to respond with appreciation or affection. Sometimes there are periodic pangs of hurt that cripple us from entering into full reciprocity with those who love and care for us. To say this is to recognize that we are still beset by brokenness and dogged by relinquishment. Our ability to respond to others and adopt them back, as it were, can never be taken for granted. For many, reaching back in mutuality toward parents and loved ones is a hard-fought choice.

The God of Our Relationships - Westminster Theological Seminary

Third, God is present in his wisdom and truth in the midst of human meanings, purposes, and attempts at control. He confronts us not only with his goodness and his name, but also with his holiness and his requirement of truthfulness and moral responsibility on our part. Personal relationships are not something that we are to be involved in as we please, independent of all moral standards. If people tried consistently to abandon moral standards with respect to relationships, no one could be trusted, and social life would be full of failures as well as treacheries. God makes the social world generally livable. But in a fallen world, there may indeed sometimes be anarchic situations and evil groups where human destruction rises to horrible heights. Short of completely reforming and purifying people as God will do in the consummation, he rules over a world that still contains treacheries in human relationships.

Cultivating the discipline of leadership — Southern Equip

Leading in those roles does not always look like a promotion or a raise or the opportunity to preach from the pulpit more often. Catch the importance of that sentence. Leading does not always look like a promotion, or a raise or the opportunity to more often take the public spotlight. Often times, leadership looks like being curious about the world around you and the roles available to you. Problem solve what is before you. Being curious and excited and enthusiastic about what is around you. When I’m recruiting, I’m looking for curious problem solvers. Because those are the folks that will most likely develop into natural leaders. Are there some closet shelves that your wife wants you to build? Then do it well, to the glory of God and to the service of your wife. Learn more about carpentry. You might not be a professional at it. But under your watch, as a leader, it will be done well! Be relevant and on point, but be curious and problem solve. Look for ways to improve life around you. This is part of having dominion over creation in your God-given work.

Retirement Homes and Caring for Aging Parents

Now, Jesus linked that love command with parents by putting them side by side in Matthew 19:19.

That is, if you would hope to be helped in your aging need, then help your parents.

In STEM Careers, Christians and Conservatives Have Little Freedom. I Know Firsthand | The Stream

I still recommend STEM careers to young Christians and conservatives. If you can keep your beliefs under the radar while you study and work, you can have a prosperous career and create value for others. But it’s getting harder and harder to go that route and also have an influence in the world. More and more, that’s the reality. If you go this path, don’t expect to enjoy the same freedoms as your colleagues on the left.

Thankfulness Protects Against PTSD

Gratitude, of course, will not be our first response. It’s impossible not to go through pain, confusion and anger when you hear about these tragedies, and even more so if you experience it firsthand. This response is called Post-Traumatic Stress (PTS), but there is also a second psychological concept called Post-Traumatic Growth (PTG). Post-Traumatic Growth happens in the season after the trauma, when some people start to feel thankful to be alive, thankful that the trauma wasn’t even worse, and grateful for the chance to learn more about themselves.

Getting Unstuck in Your Relationships (Part 2 of 2)

Daniel: Well, I’m gonna start with a client who I was counseling. He said that he makes his daughter “pinky promise” every day to be good. To me that … that immediately struck me as rather unbiblical desire, hope or expectation. It’s not gonna happen, nor is that even what God has asked parents to do for their children. And I said to him, “You are robbing your family of the magnificent display of acting out the repentance and forgiveness that God has. Instead of asking her to pinky promise every day to be good, instead you could promise to her and with her that when we sin against each other today, we will apologize and we will forgive one another. That would be a much more magnificent display of what God has put us on this earth for, rather than the futile desire to promise to be good every day.

Jen Hatmaker and the True Source of Our Moxie

And third, there’s a loving Father who doesn’t give anything that isn’t good, even the mess itself (Jas. 1:12–18). We don’t have to wrangle our own delight out of our lives. And we don’t even have to sit around the table with others who know and understand our experiences. The Father isn’t only making the mess good;  he’s the glorious good and delight within the messy wildness of our lives.

We were “othering” them – treating them as different and inferior, thereby hurting them with our views.

How Do I Prepare My Heart to Preach? - Westminster Theological Seminary

Along with this, it’s 20 hours of the harrowing of my soul as the text plows deep, bleeding furrows in my heart (Heb. 4:12). Such exposure results in ongoing repentance as I ask the Spirit to make me sympathetic to the truth of the text and, sinner though I am, to make it true in my heart. Sometimes this happens, and sometimes not. But the plowing of my heart has been salutary and elevating and sanctifying. My regular experience on the Lord’s Day was an overflowing heart. In fact, I had to cure myself of saying, “This is the most wonderful text in the Bible.”

2 Chronicles 30:1–12: Do My Actions Affect God’s Plans?

Authors often give us reasons for why someone did a certain action or why we should do a certain action. They typically give the action statement first (e.g. I went to the store/you should go to the store), then a conjunction or connecting word (in this case, usually so that, in order that, or simply that), and finally the reason for the action or the purpose statement.

Armed with Brains

What makes octopuses so brainy? Well, for one thing, their brains. Octopuses have the largest brain of any animal in their class, but it isn’t all in their head. Two-thirds of the octopus’ neurons (stuff that makes up the brain) are found in its eight arms. This arrangement allows the octopus to do more than just control the arm and its many, many suckers. God created octopus arms with the brainpower to move and react independently of the rest of the octopus. Although octopuses were not carnivores before the Fall, their brainy arms are ideal for finding and capturing a fishy meal. In fact, if an octopus loses its arm, the severed limb will still crawl along the ground looking for food. And if it finds any? The arm will curl around the food and move it up toward where the octopus’ mouth would be!

But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have firmly believed, knowing from whom you learned it and how from childhood you have been acquainted with the sacred writings, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work. (2 Timothy 3:14–17)

Why Does God Allow Evil? Author Interview with Dr. Clay Jones

CLAY JONES: Craig Hazen, the founder of Biola's MA in Christian apologetics said it well, "In this book, Clay Jones actually answers the question ‘Why Does God Allow Evil?’ So many books on the topic don't give an answer. Hence, this is a breath of fresh air. There is a bonus too. In his answer to the question Jones gives a full-arc presentation of the gospel. I've seen even seasoned Christians awaken to the depths of the gospel for the first time in response to Jones's material." Indeed, so many books on the problem of evil conclude only with an "I guess we'll find out in heaven" kind of answer, but I contend that the Bible tells us why God allows evil.

Young Christians must be inoculated rather than isolated from bad ideas. This training model is described in more detail in Forensic Faith: A Homicide Detective Makes the Case for a More Reasonable, Evidential Christian Faith .
