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.

Faithful with Little, Joyful in Much

God does not place a ceiling on our happiness. There are no limits to your joy when it is grounded in God. 2 Corinthians 9:8 says, “And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work.” God’s grace is intended to sustain you in every small detail of your life. Let us notice and jump on these little opportunities to find more joy in our big God each day.

Did the Apostles Really Die as Martyrs for Their Faith? - Christian Research Institute

The apostles spent between one and a half and three years with Jesus during his public ministry, expecting him to proclaim his kingdom on earth. Although disillusioned at his untimely death, they became the first witnesses of the risen Jesus and they endured persecution; many subsequently experienced martyrdom, signing their testimony, so to speak, in their own blood. The strength of their conviction, marked by their willingness to die, indicates that they did not fabricate these claims; rather, without exception, they actually believed Jesus to have risen from the dead. While in and of themselves these facts prove neither the truth of the Resurrection in particular nor Christianity as a whole, they do demonstrate the apostles’ sincerity of belief, lending credibility to their claims about the veracity of resurrection, which is fundamental to the case for Christianity.

A Wonderful Story of Deliverance From ‘Gay Christianity’ | The Stream

These ”Christians” who are pro LGBT subscribe to the LGBT interpretation of God (the one that the LGBT has envisioned God to be) not the true God found in the Bible and homosexuals see those of us who do not view God the same they do as haters but no just because I do not agree with the LGBT view of God does not mean that I hate them it just means that I have a different of God than them. my view of God is more Biblical while their view of God is one homosexuals made up themselves. homosexuals view God is this pro LGBT. pro homosexual practice. all accepting and does not care what people do with their gender. the true God (the God found in scripture) is not like that. he is all loving but not all accepting. he accepts people who have lived as homosexuals but he does not accept them if these people are still living as homosexuals and he does care about people do what their gender. this whole God accepts us regardless of who we love or how we choose to live our lives is not God. love is love is not in the Bible. the only love God recognizes is the love between a man and his wife.

Rapid Response: 'The Gospels Are Unreliable'

In our Rapid Response series, we tackle common concerns about (and objections to) the Christian worldview by providing short, conversational responses. These posts are designed to model what our answers might look like in a one-on-one setting, while talking to a friend or family member. Imagine if someone made the following claim: “Even if the events recorded in the Gospels came from eyewitness accounts, why should we trust what eyewitnesses tell us? Even modern-day witnesses are notoriously unreliable and are often wrong about what they claim to have seen. Why should we trust ancient eyewitness accounts?” How would you respond to such an objection? Here is a conversational example of how I recently replied:

Book Review: Where the Conflict Really Lies

Introduction This review has been a long time coming. I first heard of Alvin Plantinga and his "evolutionary argument against naturalism" several years ago. I was impressed by the original paper, and when I heard that he wrote a whole book on it, I was quite excited. As a defender of the Christian worldview, I constantly come across skeptics who believe that there is a glaring conflict between science and faith. I have defended the complete compatibility of modern science with the claims of Christianity using the sciences and some philosophy. My reading " Where the Conflict Really Lies " by Alvin Plantinga is an attempt to expand my philosophical defense. Is it successful? This review will provide a chapter-by-chapter summary of the book that will conclude with my thoughts. Part 1: Alleged Conflict Chapter 1: Evolution and Christian Belief (1) Plantinga begins by explaining that over the centuries many people have claimed there is conflict between science and Christianity. The only thing that has changed is the source of the claimed conflict- biology not astronomy. He explains it is important to define our terms in order to properly identify any conflict.

Case-Making 101: Is the Bible written by eyewitnesses of the events?

Eyewitness Accounts: Many people think the Bible is just like other “holy books” telling mythological stories or giving philosophical advice. Not true! Upon close examination one will find that the Bible with its 66 different books is written by at least 40 authors who were either eyewitnesses of the accounts or who record eyewitness testimony. These authors came and went over a period of about 1500 years yet they are so cohesive in their subject matter and theme to the point that the 66 books flow as one. In addition the Bible’s content and preservation is unmatched in ancient literature.

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.

Confessions of a Former ‘It’ Church Pastor

The rapid growth was a blessing, but it was burning me out. The influx of new volunteers felt like more of God's favor. One family plugged in faster than the others. The man of the house, Gordon (not his real name), took it upon himself to organize lunches throughout the work week that brought our people together—often without me. He used Facebook to tell everyone what a great church we were. It was flattering and seemed harmless, but it positioned him in several circles of influence at a rapid pace.

My Greatest Mistake in Dating

While the great prize in  marriage  is Christ-centered intimacy, the great prize in dating  is Christ-centered clarity.

And if we want to get married, we need to pursue clarity about whom to marry.

Defending the Accuracy of Scripture, One Coincidence at a Time

McGrew defines an undesigned coincidence as “a notable connection between two or more accounts or texts that doesn’t seem to have been planned. . . . Despite their apparent independence, the items fit together like pieces of a puzzle.” In other words, an undesigned coincidence occurs when multiple passages of Scripture include details that at first seem unrelated but which, upon further reflection, fit together in a way that only makes sense if both accounts are based on the same underlying historical truth.

Around the World in 80 Days: Your Questions Answered | Larry Alex Taunton

I think so.  The worst kind of research is done when you begin with a conclusion and work backward from it, discarding all evidence that contradicts your a priori assumptions.  I am not doing that.  I am, rather, beginning with the tentative thesis that America, founded upon a creed and unique in the convictions that have served to inspire her, is something worth preserving.  That said, I am open to being persuaded otherwise.  I am not so provincial as to think the world has nothing to offer America.  Not only have I already been on six continents and more than 30 countries, I have also lived abroad.  Those experiences go far toward informing my opinions about America and the world.

What We Mean When We Say ‘Orthodox Christianity’

Second, others such as Roberts would object to this delimiting of the concept orthodoxy since it implies an unbiblical division between dogmatics and ethics. Paul’s admonition against fornication and sexual immorality in 1 Corinthians 6 is grounded in the creation of the body as well as in Christ’s death and resurrection (“the body is . . . for the Lord, and the Lord for the body,” 1 Cor 6:13 ESV). Paul is articulating an explicitly Christological sexual ethic here. And the Christology and ecclesiology stated in Ephesians 5 both root and are rooted in the creational form of marriage between man and woman. Now, I don’t think Smith intends this division, but it seems to be a danger inherent in his thin creedalism.

Questions to Ask When Preparing for Marriage

In each of these sections one item could be added that I have not listed, namely, How do you handle and live with differences? How do you decide what can remain differences without jeopardizing the relationship? So as you deal with each subheading, include that in the discussion.
