The Planned Parenthood Racism Project - Live Action

“The most obvious practitioner of racism in the United States today is Planned Parenthood, an organization founded by the eugenicist Margaret Sanger and recently documented as ready to accept money to eliminate black babies” – Dr. Alveda King Live Action investigated the financial dealings of Planned Parenthood and made some shocking discoveries about the clinic-owning “nonprofit.”…

SES Conference

Welcome to the 2015 annual National Conference on Christian Apologetics (NCCA). Every year, Southern Evangelical Seminary hosts one of the largest apologetics events in the country. Join us on  October 16-17 (the final lecture is on Saturday at 4:30pm) , as we discuss this years theme, "Ideas Have Consequences."  Every consequence, whether good or bad, ultimately begins with an idea. This year's conference will equip Christians to engage today's most prevalent ideas, encouraging attendees to speak words of grace, so they may "know how...to answer each person" (Colossians 4:6). Help us spread the word by following our Facebook page! 

This Groom Takes the Surprise Wedding Dance to a New Level

Wedding dance videos are staples of the YouTube world. We've seen them—and the The Office episode—where a wedding or wedding reception includes some kind of we're-all-in-on-it, surprisingly coordinated dance. Well, this Virginia wedding took it to a new level. It doesn't hurt that the groom is a professional dancer in the first place, but still. It's pretty awesome.

Sword-Wielding Cashier Chases Off Robbers

Two masked men chose the wrong cashier to mess with when they attempted to rob a store in Pittsburgh this weekend. The men threatened Jewad Hayih with a machete as he was closing up Perry Market, but Hayih surprised the would-be robbers by pulling out a large sword and chasing them out of the store. The suspects weren’t caught, but they definitely got a good scare. Fortunately, the store’s security cameras caught it all on tape.

Watch Stormtroopers Storm the Golden Gate Bridge

In a move unusual even for San Francisco, more than 50 stormtroopers and other Star Wars characters—like bounty hunters and, yes, Darth Vader—marched across the Golden Gate Bridge. Marchers were part of a Star Wars costuming organization called Golden Gate Garrison, raising support for fellow fan Kevin Doyle, whose wife recently died from pancreatic cancer. At least this time, Stormtroopers storming was a good thing.

Meet KFC’s New Colonel Sanders, Norm McDonald

KFC has just replaced Colonel Sanders with another former Saturday Night Live cast member. A new, weirdly self-aware commercial for the fast food chain shows Norm McDonald donning the famous white suit, looking at a TV playing an ad featuring SNL’s Darrell Hammond as the Colonel, proclaiming, "Hey, that's not the real Colonel Sanders.” It’s weird, a little confusing, comically lazy and sort of a perfect fit for McDonald, who seems to slip in and out of character the entire time. In a statement to Mashable, KFC’s chief marketing officer explained, "Other than not quite looking like him, his voice being different, and his inability to cook the world's best chicken, we thought Norm was the perfect choice to play the Real Colonel. I think the fans will agree.”

Stephen Colbert: ‘I Am Here to Know God, Love God, Serve God’

I'm very grateful to be alive, even though I know a lot of dead people ... And so that act, that impulse to be grateful, wants an object. That object I call God. Now, that could be many things. I was raised in a Catholic tradition. I'll start there. That's my context for my existence, is that I am here to know God, love God, serve God, that we might be happy with each other in this world and with Him in the next—the catechism. That makes a lot of sense to me. I got that from my mom. And my dad. And my siblings.

The Important Question You Should Ask Before Getting Married

If my marriage contradicts my message, I have sabotaged the goal of my life, which is to be pleasing to Christ and to faithfully fulfill the ministry of reconciliation, proclaiming to the world the good news that we can be reconciled to God through Jesus Christ. If my “driving force” is as Paul says it should be, I will work to construct a marriage that enhances this ministry of reconciliation—a marriage that, in fact, incarnates this truth by putting flesh on it, building a relationship that models forgiveness, selfless love and sacrifice.

Pro-Life Christian or Pro-Justice Christian? Yes.

In my role at Focus on the Family I’m blessed to meet and work with people in both the Christian pro-life and pro-justice communities. I’ve noticed they have much in common: they love Jesus, they love their families, they share a deep sense of calling and are led by the Holy Spirit, and they take Scripture seriously and find in it the inspiration to advance the Kingdom and to participate in God’s redemptive work. They all want to be careful to first and only worship Jesus, who called them to His work, rather than make an idol of the calling itself. They’ve sacrificed the American dream, many of them, to give their lives away like the One who gave His for them.

5 Myths and Truths in Loneliness

Having been an ordained minister for 32 years and licensed psychologist for 18, I (Gary Barnes) have had the privilege of being entrusted with many personal stories of loneliness. As individuals from all walks of life have opened up with their struggles, I’ve been deeply affected from two different directions. From a psychological perspective, I’ve been struck by the depth of pain humans encounter in their experience of loneliness. And from a theological perspective, I’ve been amazed at how significant human loneliness is to the triune God.

When ‘Discernment’ Leads to Disaster

That 2000 CBF policy, still in effect, dates back to when an older generation was leading the CBF and it reflects the fact that many of the churches that were ready to join the CBF in the 1990 were not (yet) ready to endorse homosexuality. The CBF has no argument against homosexuality on biblical terms, so it is only a matter of time before it changes its policy. Even in 2000, the group announced the policy but claimed to take no “position” on homosexuality itself: “CBF values and respects the autonomy of each individual and local church to evaluate and make their own decision regarding social issues like homosexuality.”

3 Challenges You Should Expect by 30

Why 30? Shouldn't we teach and prepare the next generation to know that these are the things to expect, say, when they turn 18. I'm over this prolonged adolescence. Why wait to grow up and let the realities of life hit us? Why look at the younger generation and say that you can wait until you are 30 to learn life lessons like these. Let's advocate for growing up early, yet staying young at heart, taking responsibility over your actions and understand that life isn't going to look a certain way.

Reeling from Joy in the Texas Bay

From a young age, I was very clearly in the former class. Fishing with my dad, I felt an immediate affinity for redfish. They’re officially called red drum , but in Texas, the nickname reigns—they’re redfish. Redfish bite confidently and pull hard. They have big, strong, stubborn heads and when you hook them, they make a swift run for it. It’s a chase, and it floods me with energy. When I was 12, my dad and I were fishing with a professional guide, who knew of a pack of “bull reds” feeding near the jetties of Port Aransas. Bull reds are mature redfish that have grown beyond 27 inches and 12 pounds—generally female. These fish can live up to 60 years, and the largest one ever caught weighed 94 pounds and was nearly as tall as the fisherman. I’ve never caught anything of that caliber, but I was lucky enough to catch the biggest fish on our boat that day—a 39-inch bull red. I spent nearly an hour reeling it in, a large belt wrapped around my hips with a cup that supported the base of the rod. With my dad coaching, I’d go through slow rotations: wind in and lean forward with the rod as it bends, slowly pull up and draw the fish nearer.

Here's Why Reporters Won't Cover The Planned Parenthood Videos

The Passions That Prevent Adultery

In three minutes, John Piper explains how God cures our heart’s broken desires for sin. When the Bible calls us to live like Christ, it doesn’t merely give us a set of commands. It presents us with something compelling and captivating that changes our minds, and then our hearts. The gospel convinces us of something irresistibly true, and then transforms our desires for something new. That conviction and passion keeps us out of bed with someone who’s not our spouse and rejects a thousand other temptations.

Jennifer Hudson Will Play Aretha Franklin in a New Biopic

Former American Idol finalist and actress Jennifer Hudson may portray Aretha Franklin in an upcoming authorized biopic about the legendary singer. The project is headed up by Scott Bernstein, producer of Straight Outta Compton . According to Vulture , the biopic would focus on both Franklin’s singing career and her abusive marriage. Hudson already made a name for herself by singing Aretha songs: She performed "Share Your Love With Me" for her Idol audition and "Baby, I Love You" later in the show. Hudson, who won an Academy Award for her supporting role in the Motown musical Dreamgirls , also currently stars in the hit Fox drama Empire .

10 Ways Men Can Fight Sexism | The Junia Project

Thank you for you comments. Something to consider is that many women I speak to seem to think men misunderstand this aspect of what they experience. Who doesn’t like being complimented? The point is not that you should never ever ever compliment a woman on how she looks (this note got edited out I believe). It is just that as women we get these ALL the time at the exclusion of other things and often if we get complimented on a good sermon or academic paper our appearance also comes up! Another preacher I spoke to just a while ago said it is as though they didn’t expect anything intelligent to come out of her pretty mouth. Our whole identity and self-esteem tend to get wrapped up in our appearance to the extent that we are actually reduced to our appearance. All of this to say that it is healthy for us to be praised on a good many other things as well and formative for a young girl’s identity to be told she has determination, is smart, and loves the Lord. If a child is praised for her beauty the most, what will she grow up to value in herself?

One in Three Americans Say Divorce Is Still a Sin in Cases of Abuse

I think there are a few reasons why many pastors and Americans unfortunately believe it is a sin for divorce in cases of abuse. One reason could be they hold marriage in high regard in the midst of a culture that seems to devalue marriage. However, they may be misapplying this value and think taking a zero-tolerance stance on divorce will stem the tide.

10 Bible Scriptures About Positive and Negative Risks

A more biblical way of talking about risk is using the phrase "to step out in faith." It is something that can really change someone. When you take a risk for the Lord, it means you are going out of your way to do something for him. When you take normal risk that involves something other than the Lord, it turns out to be negative in most cases. It's important for us as Christian to know the difference between positive and negative risks, and the Bible is a perfect place to look.

Underoath Is Reuniting

My personal belief is that I don’t think it’s right for Underoath to put a label on what it is. It’s something separately to each one of us, and I think it’s something separate to every single person who bought those records. For some people, it is a Christian thing and for some it isn’t. There are definitely Christian themes in our music, but we all have different belief systems now. That’s not to say any of us believe in sacrificing goats under a tree. I’m definitely a Christian, but I don’t think Underoath should be a “Christian band.” I think it needs to be something that’s ambiguous enough that anyone can latch onto it and find what they want to find. And I think that’s the beauty of what Underoath is.

From drug addict to daughter of the King – Premier Christianity

Finally I met a man who was a dealer in south London. I used my charms to get the drugs, and then I fell pregnant. I was injecting drugs by this time. We ended up getting married, but a month before the wedding I lost the baby. I remember chopping up a line of heroin on the top of the toilet in the church, in my wedding dress, and snorting it…I walked down the aisle and said, ‘God, I’m so sorry for what I’m about to do.’ And then I did it.

Will the Internet Kill Christianity?

The true fear, that I have seen in some of my peers and in some of the adults I have talked with, is that if Christianity, as a movement of religion, takes ground in secular culture then we risk being mis-portrayed and "contaminated". True Christianity is not a religion, it is a FAITH, the faith that raised people from the dead and still heals people. That faith never dies and is stronger than the power of death and the grave. Faith can't be "contaminated" and no one can make a good argument to say it is fake. Christian religion has denominations, which are all to some degree wrong because they were made by men. God didn't say, "Hey my children! Lets have like, IDK, 10 or more different versions of my love for you. Just stick to the basics of Jesus' sacrifice and you'll be fine." He said The Ten Commandments, the Golden Rule, everything Jesus said, and everything I spoke to you is true. If followers of Christ will stick to the basics of Christianity and let the Holy Spirit convict them of all other things (which will be smaller personal choices that can be taken on by others), we can actually be appealing to modern culture.

Wright has taught at Cambridge University, Oxford University, Duke University, McGill University, and lectured on dozens of prestigious campuses around the world. He’s published 40 books.

Star Wars Attractions Are Coming to the Disney Parks

Star Wars fans may soon have a new reason to visit Disneyland. At the D23 Expo this weekend, Disney CEO Bob Iger said they were building Star Wars-styled lands at their theme parks in Florida and California. Calling the project the “largest single-themed land expansion ever,” Iger explained that the theme of the park areas will be based on the idea that each is its own planet “occupied by many inhabitants; humanoids, aliens and droids ... the attractions, the entertainment, everything we create will be part of our storytelling. Nothing will be out of character or stray from the mythology.”

Slovakia Agreed to Take in 200 Syrian Refugees, But Only if They’re Christians

While even this small offer of welcome is certainly good news (especially considering that Slovakia granted asylum to only 14 people last year and has been staunchly unwelcoming to refugees in the past), it is also indicative of a troubling anti-Muslim and anti-migrant attitude in parts of Europe. As The Washington Post points out, Muslims make up less than one percent of populations in Eastern European countries, but leaders still express fear that allowing migrants in could endanger the countries’ cultures and ways of life. The prime minister of Hungary is even planning to build a giant fence along the nation's border to prevent migrants from entering from Serbia. And a group in the Czech Republic gathered 145,000 signatures on a petition against Muslim immigrants. Meanwhile, as more and more refugees flood into Europe, European officials are calling on all member countries to share the load along with the more migrant-friendly countries such as Austria.

God Does Help Those Who Help Themselves

What Isn’t for Sale?

I realize now what that life was made of: a life in no way insignificant; on the contrary, it was rich, a perfect match for my body and myself. Yet nothing was simple, and these words I write would once have seemed leaden to me, so ashamed was I at times of my singularity, a strangeness worse than difference. Everyone knows that even people who are different have a certain sexuality worthy of the name, things to show for it, defeats they can lay claim to. Whereas we, the loners, an army that does violence only to itself, a small tribe, unavowable and hence unknowable in number, we understand instinctively that speaking out will allow the world to send us deeper into exile--and foster the kind of stupid nonsense people say about whatever they cannot comprehend. They turn us into scapegoats who reassure all others on this point: however problematic their carnal pleasures might be, we offer proof, through our most definite exclusion, that their circumstances are still better than nothing.

Correcting four myths about the history of the Crusades

What had happened? Most people actually know the answer, if pressed—though for some reason they do not usually connect the answer with the crusades. The answer is the rise of Islam. Every one of the listed regions was taken, within the space of a hundred years, from Christian control by violence, in the course of military campaigns deliberately designed to expand Muslim territory at the expense of Islam’s neighbors. Nor did this conclude Islam’s program of conquest. The attacks continued, punctuated from time to time by Christian attempts to push back. Charlemagne blocked the Muslim advance in far western Europe in about a.d. 800, but Islamic forces simply shifted their focus and began to island-hop across from North Africa toward Italy and the French coast, attacking the Italian mainland by 837. A confused struggle for control of southern and central Italy continued for the rest of the ninth century and into the tenth. In the hundred years between 850 and 950, Benedictine monks were driven out of ancient monasteries, the Papal States were overrun, and Muslim pirate bases were established along the coast of northern Italy and southern France, from which attacks on the deep inland were launched.

40 Does Creation Imply Moral Improvement? | Reasonable Faith

You say, “ No moral purpose is served by creating beings with free will to choose evil that is not already fulfilled by God's goodness alone. ” I’m not sure what you mean by “moral purpose.” Denying that God’s purpose in creation is to morally improve the overall state of reality does not imply that God does not act with moral purposes. For example, it is morally better for there to be persons with the freedom to choose evil than for there to be mere brutes. That seems to be a moral purpose for creating such persons rather than brutes. We might even affirm that it is morally better that creatures with free will exist than that no such creatures exist. That would provide a moral purpose for creating them. What remains correct, however, is that the purpose of creation cannot be to morally improve the overall state of reality. But since I do not think that that is the purpose of creation, such a conclusion is inconsequential.

Sunday Quote!- Genesis 1-11 is Fiction?

Funny! Having been an Atheist and believing the Bible was a mythological book, it is surprising to find so many believers in the message of it as also those who believe that it is exactly what I thought in years of folly, One exception was a fellow who studied myths, C.S. Lewis. Seems he thought the Book was not mythological. I tend to agree with him, having studied history in 10 colleges and universities. The lean prose of the Book is a dead give away that, while the work is theological, it is adhering to a standard of truth that far exceeds anything we can imagine. My main field of history was and is intellectual, the study of ideas. I find the Bible to be a work of such depth in way that is incomprehensible, that is, in its perspicuity as one old Puritan called it or its clarity as we would say today. Because it is so simple, so plain, so clear, we think we understand it and can classify it. The truth is otherwise or so it seems to me after over 55 years of study, research, five degrees and work on number six.

Government Rules that College Athletes Won’t Be Allowed to Unionize

The National Labor Relations Board has decided they do not have jurisdiction to rule that a group of football players at Northwestern University should be treated as employees —not students—which would allow them to unionize. A lower, regional labor director had previously said that because students received scholarships in exchange for work, they should be allowed to form a union to protect themselves from labor abuses. In their decision, the NLRB said that “asserting jurisdiction over a single team would not promote stability in labor relations across the league.” Former quarterback Kain Colter told ESPN , “This isn't going to stop us from pushing for college athlete rights. That will eventually come. If it's not going to happen this way, we'll get it another way."

Killing the Canaanites: A Response to the New Atheism’s “Divine Genocide” Claims - Christian Research Institute

The “new atheists” call God’s commands to kill the Canaanites “genocide,” but a closer look at the horror of the Canaanites’ sinfulness, exhibited in rampant idolatry, incest, adultery, child sacrifice, homosexuality, and bestiality, reveals that God’s reason for commanding their death was not genocide but capital punishment. After all, the Old Testament unequivocally commands that those who do any one of these things deserves to die. Also, God made it clear in His conversation with Abraham regarding the Canaanite cities of Sodom and Gomorrah that He knows who would or would not repent, and in the case of those cities, not one person would heed the warning and even Lot’s family had to be forcibly pulled away from the coming destruction. In Leviticus 18 God then warns Israel that if they commit similar sins that the land would similarly “vomit” them out. Later when Israel disobeys God and allows the Canaanites to continue to live among them, the corruptive and seductive power of Canaanite sin results in the Canaanization of Israel. Subsequently, God sent prophets to warn Israel of their coming destruction, but they didn’t repent and God said that they became “like Sodom to me” and He visited destruction on Israel for committing the same sins.

Report: AT&T Partnered with the NSA to Spy on Americans

According to newly released documents , communications company AT&T greatly helped the National Security Agency spy on American Internet users, including major customers like the United Nations. Though several companies have worked with the government, the documents say that AT&T had an “extreme willingness to help,” giving the NSA access to billions of emails. The documents were provided to The New York Times and ProPublica by whistleblower Edward Snowden. Warrantless wiretaps and the NSA's massive surveillance program, revealed by for former contractor who now lives in Russia, have been widely criticized. The documents say that AT&T and their engineers had an extremely close relationship with the domestic spying projects, though, when asked for comment by the The Times , a spokesperson said, “We don’t comment on matters of national security.”
