Should Christians use birth control? In light of recent advances in biotechnology it is crucial to consider the issue of birth control through the lens of a biblical worldview. First, while there is much debate among Christians on the question of whether birth control is appropriate in any form, there is no question that birth […]

Grace to You

The externals that Jesus mentioned—food, drink, and clothing—all pertain to the body. The world believes that man lives because of his body, and man therefore lives for his body. But Jesus asked, “Is not life more than food, and the body than clothing?” (v. 25). In other words, your body does not give you life but is given life by God, who is the source of all life. Jesus is arguing from the greater to the lesser. If God gives you life (the greater), will He not also provide what you need for life (the lesser)? God gives you life and also sustains your life by providing food, drink, and clothing. Therefore, there’s no reason for you to worry.

Grace to You

In Luke 15 Jesus tells a parable about a father who had two sons. The younger son asked for his share of the family inheritance, then left home and squandered it on sinful pursuits. When he realized his folly, he decided to return home and ask his father's forgiveness. So "he got up and came to his father. But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him, and felt compassion for him, and ran and embraced him, and kissed him. And the son said to him, 'Father, I have sinned against heaven and in your sight; I am no longer worthy to be called your son.' But the father said to his slaves, 'Quickly bring out the best robe and put it on him, and put a ring on his hand and sandals on his feet; and bring the fattened calf, kill it, and let us eat and be merry'" (vv. 20-23).

How an Entrepreneur's Passion Can Destroy a Startup

@Joann Walsh Two points in rebut to your statement.  One, working for someone as an employee, in the grand scheme of things over time has actually not been around that long.  It wasn't until the industrial revolution, which began in England, did people begin moving into cities and take on factory jobs, etc.  Before then, the vast majority worked for themselves.  Secondly, I would like to think that everyone has something someone else wants.  The difference between you and an entrepreneur is that you believe YOU have something someone wants, which is why someone hired you for whatever job you have now.  For the entrepreneur, it's all about building and creating something either from scratch, or by purchasing an existing entity knowing you can improve upon it.  This article points out the many pitfalls that entrepreneurs can and do fall prey to, but there are also a great many that succeed.  Don't knock it, till you've tried it.  And it's not as simple as your statement makes it sound.

Mark Driscoll Steps Down While Mars Hill Investigates Charges

Driscoll referenced fallout with former church leaders. “God is not honored by conflict, strife, disunity, arguing, slander, gossip, or anything else that is inconsistent with the fruit of the Spirit, and I am deeply sorry, genuinely sorry, for the times I have not done my part to live peaceably with all men,” he said. Driscoll also expressed thankfulness for those who had confronted Mars Hill leaders’ in-person and allowed the church to “deal with it head-on between the two affected parties, rather than in the court of public opinion and public media.”

Taking God Out of the Equation - Kirk Cameron

The effort reached its first pinnacle at the time of the ancient Greeks, but it raised its head again in the last few centuries. At one point, some of the world’s leading minds seemed to be close to reaching their goal. Ironically, another mathematician stepped in to prove that they would never reach it! This mathematician proved that there must be true statements in any given mathematical system that cannot be proved within that system. Thus, math cannot be the ultimate foundation for truth; it must appeal to something beyond itself.

Why Britain is poorer than any US state, other than Mississippi - Spectator Blogs

Now and again, America puts its inequality on display to the world. We saw it after Hurricane Katrina and we have seen it again in the unrest in Ferguson, Missouri. A white police offer shoots dead a black man, after having stopped him for jaywalking. Britain’s police don’t have guns, so these scenes are unthinkable to us. But American-style inequality? We have plenty of that too, we’re just better at hiding it – as I say in my Telegraph column today .

Victor Davis Hanson - Sherman in Gaza

Advertisement Much of the South has hated William Tecumseh Sherman for over a century and a half, but not because his huge army killed thousands of young Confederate soldiers (it did not). Grant did that well enough in the horrific summer of 1864 outside Richmond. Rather, Sherman humiliated the plantationist class by staging three long marches during the last twelve months of the Civil War — from Tennessee to Atlanta, from Atlanta to Savannah, and from Savannah up through the Carolinas. In each of these brilliantly conducted invasions, Sherman, with a few notable exceptions, sought to avoid direct fighting with Confederate forces, either outflanking opposing armies that popped up in his way, or entrenching and letting aggressors wear themselves out against his fortified lines.

Road to ‘Calvary’ Filled with Gospel Imagery

Lavelle knows he doesn’t have to face him. The attacker grants him a week to “get your affairs in order,” but Lavelle uses this time not to flee or fight. Instead, he remains faithful to his calling and service of others. He continues meeting his dysfunctional parishioners, including a ridiculous young man who wants to join the Army to outlet his sexual frustration. Most of his people, though, laugh off Lavelle’s religious speech. The church has lost credibility and trust, and Lavelle is stuck with the bill. We realize that this flawed yet humble priest is bearing the sins of many, including his fellow priests’ abuse. This is his calling, his purpose. When his daughter (Lavelle was widowed before he became a priest) visits him after her attempted suicide, they confront their regrets and reconcile as father and daughter. Their dialogue has a tender urgency; he wants her to know his love before it is too late.

Want to Be Multiethnic? Get Ready For Discomfort

Living out this goal proved to be far more difficult than any of us ever anticipated. We discovered that cultural differences run to the core of almost every way we “do church.” For example, the white folks expected an hour-long service, but for the black folks a two-hour service seemed abbreviated. The white families expected a highly structured children’s ministry, while many of the black families came from churches in which the children were a part of the entire worship service. We ran up against cultural differences in almost every aspect of congregation life—from worship music to preaching styles, from hospitality ministry to small group ministry. This struggle led us to an important conclusion: what keeps people congregationally segregated may not so much be racial animosity but rather profound cultural differences, and an undergirding consumer mentality that keeps us selecting congregations that best meet our personal cultural preferences.

How Jesus Became God in the Flesh - Apologetics Book: Christian Analysis Defeats the Skepticism of Bart Ehrman: How Jesus Became God in the Flesh

"There is no conflict between religion and science; Only the conflict between two sciences, that of the 4th century BCE and the science of 2014." Joseph Campbell. Your thesis irresponsibly confuses evolution and human progress with God-- with a fallacious Post Hoc ergo Propter hoc rationale. Since there is vast scientific proof of the former and none of the latter, we can readily dismiss it as just more sciolistic confirmation bias. A third grade understanding of the tens of thousand of years of human progress from the paleolithic, Iron age, Bronze age to the high Neolithic more than proves the evolution of human reason from the Hunter gatherers to Planting societies, to the stargazing Zigurat builders and the early foundations of the "good society". Sadly, what you are arguing requires an astonishing campaign of ignorance, or denial of history, science, and logic -- again negating the very point of your thesis. Belief in god presupposes nescience, not reason. Ironically, by arguing for the opposite you undermine your entire premise: Reason is not born of god, but of MAN and we have the entire anthropological record of man to prove it.

What’s the Point of All this Futility?

Futility means things fall apart. It means that what begins fresh and green and thrilling in the morning of life and love and new ventures fades and withers in its evening (Psalm 90:5-6). People die, families disintegrate, churches split, love is betrayed, revivals dissipate into nominalism, revolutions devolve into corrupt establishments, and universities founded to preserve doctrinal orthodoxy decline into bastions of godlessness.

Radical New Theory Could Kill the Multiverse Hypothesis | Science | WIRED

The implications are enormous. Without supersymmetry, the Higgs boson mass seems as if it is reduced not by mirror-image effects but by random and improbable cancellations between unrelated numbers — essentially, the initial mass of the Higgs seems to exactly counterbalance the huge contributions to its mass from gluons, quarks, gravitational states and all the rest. And if the universe is improbable, then many physicists argue that it must be one universe of many: just a rare bubble in an endless, foaming “multiverse.” We observe this particular bubble, the reasoning goes, not because its properties make sense, but because its peculiar Higgs boson is conducive to the formation of atoms and, thus, the rise of life. More typical bubbles, with their Planck-size Higgs bosons, are uninhabitable.

Multiculturalism Beyond Photo Ops and Potlucks

Within our context, an aspect of giving sight to the blind and setting the captives free is becoming a haven of formation and re-education. Racism must be historically situated to be understood. We cannot pursue reconciliation without mending the historical trauma inflicted upon communities of color. Christians must discuss injustices like medical racism and our nation’s eugenics movement, in which Puerto Rican, African, and Native American women were sterilized without consent. We must wrestle with the fact that 31 states had federally sanctioned eugenics programs by the 1960s. We need to know about the Tuskegee Syphilis Experiment, which was also a federally run and endowed study, where African American men—mostly illiterate and impoverished—were experimented upon like laboratory animals for 40 years. They were prohibited by government officials from receiving penicillin for 25 years after it was readily available and publically authorized to cure syphilis.

How Natural Family Planning Shaped My View of Sex

Just a few years (and one baby) later, we are no longer using NFP, but our experience with this method continues to shape how I approach sex and reproduction. NFP brought an increased awareness that having sex could lead to children. It forced me to wrestle with this reality more on a regular basis, rather than opt out of that consequence more easily. NFP also taught me to relinquish control (or better said, recognize I didn’t have it to begin with) through honoring the mystery of the human body. Based on the Theology of the Body teachings by Pope John Paul II, NFP advocates a profound respect for the human body as the outward manifestation of the human person. I think in some cases Theology of the Body can be taken too far, equating biological function with role and identity. But I agree with the core premise that there is something sacred about our bodies’ design and function, not to be meddled with lightly.

Andrew Bennett: Canada raises its voice in defence of Middle East Christians

The rich spiritual and cultural heritage of the 2,000 year-old Christian communities established by the Apostles is now vanishing. The 1400-year history of co-existence between Christians, Muslims, and a myriad of other faiths — while not always respectful — is now ending. The cradle of Christianity in the eastern Mediterranean and Middle East is being effectively de-Christianized.

What if I sent you into a new city to establish a chain of health-food stores, since I was deeply committed to healthy eating and was willing to invest large amounts of money to see that vision succeed? Every year, you sent me glowing success reports, but when I came to the city several years later to observe firsthand, I was shocked to see that you had opened a chain of highly successful ice cream parlors, famous for serving the most decadent desserts in the city. Would that be "success"?

Colton Dixon: God Doesn't Expect 'Perfect' Christians; Singer Says We All Need More 'Jesus Time'

"I'm human. We all struggle with that at one point or another ... I don't think God expects us to [be perfect] when we become a Christian," he said. "It's gonna be a gradual thing and the cool thing about it is if He calls you to something He's gonna figure out how to make it happen. But when it comes to surrednering yourself it can start in steps; I don't think He expects all of it to happen at once. The desire of it all to happen is what changes."

This list includes U.S.- and British-based aid groups all with established work in Iraq who are assisting displaced families in the northern part of the country made homeless by this summer’s ISIS offensive. These groups are partnering with local churches and religious leaders to deliver relief aid, including tents and other shelter, food and hygiene kits, medicine, and other material (including, in some cases, Bibles). Many are working with Christians, Muslims, Yazidis, and other religious minorities, and more information is available on their websites. There are other groups likely, and suggestions for additions are welcome.

Answering Muslims: Hollywood Condemns Muhammad

Sunan Abu Dawud 2150 —The Apostle of Allah sent a military expedition to Awtas on the occasion of the battle of Hunain. They met their enemy and fought with them. They defeated them and took them captives. Some of the Companions of the Apostle of Allah were reluctant to have intercourse with the female captives in the presence of their husbands who were unbelievers. So Allah, the Exalted, sent down the Qur’anic verse: “And all married women (are forbidden) unto you save those (captives) whom your right hands possess.” That is to say, they are lawful for them when they complete their waiting period. Qur’an 98:6 —Verily, those who disbelieve (in the religion of Islam, the Qur'an and Prophet Muhammad) from among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians) and Al-Mushrikun will abide in the Fire of Hell. They are the worst of creatures . Sahih Muslim 6985 —Allah’s Messenger said: The last hour would not come unless the Muslims will fight against the Jews and the Muslims would kill them until the Jews would hide themselves behind a stone or a tree and a stone or a tree would say: Muslim, or the servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me; come and kill him; but the tree Gharqad would not say, for it is the tree of the Jews.

How Theologians Have Failed Asian Christians—and How They Can Do Better

The disconnect is largely due, in Chan’s account, to ingrained theological habits among “elite” theologians. When thinking about Asia, they typically focus on a particular cultural factor, stressing the necessity of working for political and economic justice, or for addressing the oppressiveness of patriarchy, or for engaging other religions in dialogue. If local Christian communities do not see those approaches as meeting their needs, these theologians assume, it is because they are victimized by “bad faith.” Grassroots believers, then, need to be brought to an awareness of the realities that actually plague their lives.

http://erlc.com/article/mone-davis-the-little-league-world-series-and-my-daughters

We believe that all people, male and female, are created in the image of God. Men and women are divinely designed gendered image bearers. It is our gendered humanity that images God in the world (Gen 1:27). Our sexual distinctiveness reveals to us something important about God’s nature. In our attempt to teach our sons and daughters a healthy biblical sexuality, we want to celebrate and champion God’s design in their distinctive masculinity and femininity. We desire for them to think about male and female relationships as complimentary and not competitive. We do not want our daughters thinking in terms of being able to do anything a boy can do. And we want our boys to think in terms of fighting for girls and not competing against them (1 Cor 11:8-10, 1 Pet 3:7).

Saul of Tarsus and ISIS

Why wouldn’t he do it today? Lets ask.

Why We Need To Attend Church ~ Ministry Best Practices

More often than I like, I hear of individuals and families who tell me that they do "church online". Usually that involves gathering in their living room, turning on and sitting in front of the computer to "do" church. It is unfortunate though to talk about "doing" church because church isn't something to "do", rather it is something to "be". We are called to be the church to one another and to a world in need of hope. The church isn't a task to be done, rather it is a living organism, a family, a people.

On Platforms, Self-Promotion, and Pleasure Complete

When challenged by his disciples regarding his “platform” not being as great as Jesus’, John replied, “A person cannot receive even one thing unless it is given him from heaven” (John 3:27). John recognized the influence and position was given to him by God, not the result of self-promotion and working up a ladder and using people for selfish gain. John also knew that his platform had an expiration date. He was not going to live for something that was going to terminate. He was willing to let it go so long as he was faithful to fulfill the purpose of God attached to it. John was content when he was raised up in popularity and prominence, and he was content when he was brought low in obscurity and marginalization. This was because platform was not his god but a tool to put his God on display. He knew platforms came from God and are for God. They do not come from us and are for us.

44 Denominations that liberalized Christianity's teachings on sex are in decline

I think it’s because when a person says that the plain meaning of Scripture is no longer authoritative in our lives simply because it interferes with our seeking of pleasure, that  is  the ballgame. When it comes to ethics, any serious Christian is going to look to the Bible to be the guide on God’s character and our duties to him that come out of being in relationship with him. If I have girlfriend, and we go out to a restaurant, I cannot spend the entire time hitting on the waitress and staring at every other girl in the room. Similarly, when a person claims to be a Christian, and be in a relationship with God, it’s a two-way relationship, and our actions have got to respect God as he is. God has a design for male-female relationships – a design for love, marriage and sex. If we just decide that we don’t have to care about who he is when we make these decisions about love, marriage and sex, then the relationship with him is over. It’s all about us, then. And if it’s all about us, then why get up and go to church at all?

Anger can be a the most intense, destructive and unhealthy emotions we can have. If it is not handled properly, it can change our lives forever.

Without resolving the problem, anger can have someone destroy something.

Your First Calling Is to Trust God

If you have been given a particular calling and ministry from the Lord, I hope it burns within your soul and provides you with much passion for service everyday. That tends to be the way it plays out for a Spirit-led and Spirit-filled believer who is called and gifted to serve in God's kingdom. But there are plenty of obstacles along the way, as I am sure you have probably already discovered.

49
The Myth of Persecution

Then, Moss’s approach to the miracles in the Martyrdom of Polycarp is typical of New Testament scholars who approach the canonical Scriptures with a hermeneutic of suspicion. Miracles simply do not happen, hence any account of them renders the document containing them suspect. It’s also noteworthy that with regard to one of the miracles—Polycarp’s burning flesh being like the smell of baking bread, of gold and silver being refined, and of incense—the use of the term hōs indicates a series of analogous comparisons are being made. As Polycarp was consumed by the flames, it was as if the smell issuing forth from the flames was like bread in an oven, or like gold and silver in a smelter’s furnace, or lit incense in a temple. Surely the author is indicating Polycarp’s death was well-pleasing to God in a way similar to the New Testament’s insistence that the Christian life being a sweet-smelling aroma to him (e.g., Eph. 5:2). As for the mention of preserving Polycarp’s remains, Moss’s contention that this is anachronistic and redolent of third- or even fourth-century practice seems somewhat arbitrary.

The Caves We Run To… - Eric Geiger

David prayed Psalm 57 while hiding in a cave from the egomaniac Saul, who was seeking to kill him. Saul had kept a jealous eye on David ever since people declared, “Saul has slain his thousands and David his tens of thousands.” Because his name and fame were his refuge, Saul was miserable. Because his reputation was his god, any loss of favor in the eyes of people destroyed him.
