Elite Scientists Don't Have Elite Reasons for Being Atheists

Follow @ThePoachedEgg Switch to mobile friendly version Elite Scientists Don’t Have Elite Reasons for Being Atheists Shadow to Light One of the favorite arguments in the atheist movement is to point to leading scientists and note that a majority of them are atheists. The argument is, of course, pathetic and not much different from trying to score some point for male superiority because the same elite scientists are mostly white males. What matters are the arguments and evidence these elite scientists can come up with. If their atheism is linked to their expertise as scientists and scholars, surely this group...

A Generation Passionate for God’s Holiness

And we went out to dinner afterwards, and I said to Noël, “You know what I like about that movie most? It made me admire and tremble at Jesus Christ more.” And she said, “Why is that?” I said, “Because as I sat there watching, I thought, ‘Now even if these events were true they took place on earth or the middle of earth, and earth is a small planet in a solar system about seven billion miles across. And the solar system is just a small little system in the Milky Way galaxy which is about 600,000 trillion miles across and the galaxy that we live in is a modest, relatively large size galaxy in a universe that probably has about one hundred million such galaxies in it, and Jesus Christ put this in place with the flick of his little finger.’”

I want my kids to know what they believe and why they believe it

Faith in God is a reasonable faith. I want my kids to see that Christianity is true to the way things are—that it corresponds to reality. I want them to see Christianity as good and beautiful too—that Jesus and the Gospel satisfy their longings in a way that nothing else can. I want them to know what they believe and why they believe it. I want them to love the right things in the right way. In short, I want to teach my kids apologetics.

Does God Like Me?

We may have the strongest consolations and encouragements against our sins. . . . There is comfort, in that your very sins move him to pity more than to anger. . . . Christ takes part with you, and is far from being provoked against you, as all his anger is turned upon your sin to ruin it; yea, his pity is increased the more towards you, even as the heart of a father is to a child that hath some loathsome disease, or as one is to a member of his body that hath the leprosy, he hates not the member, for it is his flesh, but the disease, and that provokes him to pity the part affected the more. . . . The greater the misery is, the more is the pity when the party is beloved.

How God Keeps it Together

But what of the infinite God who pictures himself in multiple roles and names in Scripture? God is called a father (Deut. 32:6), a king (Isa. 33:22), a healer (Ex. 15:26), a warrior (Ex. 15:3), a bridegroom (Isa. 62:5), a gardener (Isa. 5:1–7), and so much more. Though he is not limited to his titles, God takes on a number of roles that depict the nature of his relationship to his creation. In these roles, we see his many attributes named in Scripture: justice, faithfulness, holiness, love, power, joy, eternality, and so on.

What Does It Mean to Be "In the World" but Not "Of the World"? (Podcast) | Cold Case Christianity

The Case for Satan

The devil is destined for the lake of fire along with the beast and the prophet and all those who follow them. It says in Revelation 20:10 that the devil “was thrown into the lake of fire and sulfur where the beast and the false prophet were, and they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.” But for now this devil is on a long chain and loose in the world. He is the god of this world and the whole world lies under him.

God Must Exist: A Different Version of the Argument from Truth

How Would You Introduce Your Faith?

As you think about the question you might consider conveying that the Christian faith is a set of beliefs—but it also involves an important collection of values, and it is also very much a way of life. The Christian faith genuinely encompasses all three of these critical components, with their importance likely in the order given (beliefs, values, way of life).

False ideas are the greatest obstacles to the reception of the gospel

It would be a great mistake to suppose that all men are equally well prepared to receive the gospel. It is true that the decisive thing is the regenerative power of God. That can overcome all lack of preparation. But as a matter of fact God usually exerts that power in connection with certain prior conditions of the human mind, and it should be ours to create, so far as we can, with the help of God, those favorable conditions for the reception of the gospel. False ideas are the greatest obstacles to the reception of the gospel. We may preach with all the fervor of a reformer and yet succeed only in winning a straggler here and there, if we permit the whole collective thought of the nation or the world to be controlled by ideas which, by the resistless force of logic, prevent Christianity from being regarded as anything more than a harmless delusion. Under such circumstances, what God desires us to do is to destroy the obstacle at its root.

Five Mass Extinctions or One Cataclysmic Event?

If a single Flood buried all these creatures, why is there evidence of five mass extinctions? Consider what “mass extinctions” describes. Animals weren’t all buried together in a jumbled mess. Instead, some creatures were buried before other creatures. Whenever many different types of organisms from the same place were completely buried on a massive scale at the same levels, often no more appear higher in the fossil record. So secular scientists think they look like “mass extinctions.”

NBC Introduces 'Female Forward' Initiative for More Equality for Women TV Directors

The network just announced the “Female Forward” initiative that will allow more women directors to have the chance to develop their skills.

Do You Have to Like God's Commands?

This conversation came to mind recently when I heard someone say that while they obey what the Bible said about sexual ethics, they certainly don’t like it. And this wasn’t a fledgling believer but an established leader. It raises the question: Do we have to like the things God says in the Bible? Is it enough to just grit our teeth and obey, even when we’re really not happy with what we’re obeying?

Are evangelicals becoming more open to gay marriage?

Vines points to trends among millennials as evidence of his claim. Vines is right about those larger demographic trends, but he is wrong about what they mean. Yes, millennials are far more open to gay marriage than their parents or grandparents. And yes, that will likely influence some within the evangelical movement to embrace gay marriage as well. But what does that mean? It doesn’t mean that the Christian faith is changing its posture on marriage. It means that some people currently associated with Christianity will be leaving us. They will follow a “stranger’s” voice right out of the faith.

Faith and Reason: Friends or Foes?

Those quotes are from polar opposites culturally speaking, as the first quote is from retired Oxford evolutionary biologist and outspoken critic of religion Richard Dawkins while the second is from the pastor of the largest church in America, Joel Osteen.  Given this definition of faith (where faith and facts do not mix) adhered to by people at both ends of the religious spectrum, from atheists to pastors, we must ask ourselves, “Where does this leave reason?” Reasoning, the tool used to arrive at truth, would then be the enemy of faith, right? Think of how devastating this would be to anyone who holds to a creed or statement of faith who simultaneously wants to say that what they believe in that regard is actually true! If we arrive at truth through reasoning to a conclusion based on established facts, then faith and reason are surely foes!  Or are they?…..

Report: A Quarter of Officers That Were Fired For Misconduct Were Given Their Jobs Back

The violations varied from actions like cheating the departments (and tax payers) out of money while intentionally mis-declaring overtime to shooting an unarmed suspect. Some of the violations are downright shocking: One officer lost his job after a dash cam filmed him attempting to pick a fight with with handcuffed suspect (he said he’d release him if he agreed to fight); one officer sexually abused a teen woman in his police car (he was ordered to be reinstated, but the case remains in arbitration).

27 Artificial Intelligence will lead to the human soul, not destroy it

Granted, forms of AI are already achieving impressive results. These use brute force, huge and fast memory, rules-based automation, and layers of pattern matching to perform their extraordinary feats. But this processing is not aware, perceiving, feeling, cognition. The processing doesn’t go beyond its intended activities even if the outcomes are unpredictable. Technology based on this level of AI will often be quite remarkable and definitely must be managed well to avoid dangerous repercussions. However, in and of itself, this AI cannot lead to a true replication of the human mind.

Twelve Gospel Passages to Soak In

“The grace of God in truth” (Colossians 1:6) is the shock that brings a dead soul to life, and the charge that keeps it living. The gospel is the gas that awakens and energizes the human heart, not mere truth — essential as truth is. Two plus two equals four — that’s true. It just doesn’t do much to jumpstart and drive a languishing soul.

A Millennial Anomaly? Why I’m Still In Church

When I share my story with someone older than me, that person can help me because he or she has been where I’ve been and can help and encourage me along the way with his or her story. In turn, I can do the same thing with people younger than me. I’m still going to church because I need people to share their story with me and to listen to mine—to help me in whatever chapter I’m in, and to love me in the middle of it. And I’ll do the same for them. I need your story and you need mine.

Like Books? Thank a Christian: How the Codex Supports the Canon

It might seem like an oxymoron, but while a large portion of the earliest Christians were illiterate, Christianity itself carved out a niche for itself as one of the most “bookish” religions in the Greco-Roman world.  The sheer quantity of New Testament manuscripts available, with more still being discovered today, testify to this fact and provide a critical clue, for historians and theologians alike, as to how central canonical books were to the community of burgeoning Christians.[1]  So prolific was this literary dissemination, that it becomes clear that a commitment to an authoritative body of Scripture was a very early development in the Christian faith.

Dr Brown Refutes 'King James Only'

yeoberry - So, Easter is Christian b/c Christians christianized it; thus say's the dictionary'? That's your argument? No wonder why you're so frazzled and lashing out. Good grief! After all I've explained, you still persist in misrepresentation. Notice how you had to go to the dictionary to produce an explanation for easter? That's b/c easter is not a prophetic biblical feast of the Resurrection. Why stand on a dictionary when we have the Bible? Spring Equinox or First Fruits, which is greater? What will Jesus celebrate when He returns; Passover/First Fruits or Easter? As I've stated before, Christians who are observing easter practices are simply doing so in ignorance, this does not make them Pagan nor does it make the resurrection of Yeshua/Jesus Pagan, as you're trying so desperately to assert 'easter is Christian b/c Christians Christianized it, thus say's the dictionary' or 'easter is Christian b/c many Christians celebrate the Resurrection on the Spring Equinox' (to your error). So, majority rule makes it accurate? That's asinine! Most Christians ignorantly think only 2 of each animal went on the Ark (error) or that the lion lays down w/ the lamb (error); so, by your majority rules theory if Christians hold an inaccurate belief, b/c it is the majority it makes it 'Christian' belief !?! I disagree.

Are You Chasing Happiness or Holiness?

God stands before us not as our Therapist or our Concierge. He stands before us as the God of utter purity to whom we are morally accountable. He is objective to us and not lost within the misty senses of our internal world. His Word comes to us from outside of our self because it is the Word of his truth. It summons us to stand before the God of the universe, to hear his command that we must love him and love our neighbors as ourselves. He is not before us to be used by us. He is not there begging to enter our internal world and satisfy our therapeutic needs. We are before him to hear his commandment . And his commandment is that we should be holy, which is a much greater thing than being happy. . . .

Making grace amazing.

We are not to forget the Law once we have trusted the Savior. Like John the Baptist, its function is to prepare the way of the Lord (see Gal. 3:24). Does the student, after he graduates, forget the knowledge given by his tutor? That knowledge may now be used to instruct lost sinners on why they, too, need the Savior (see Gal. 3:24).

The Pay Gap Is Worse for Pastor-Moms

Co-pastoring can give married women an immediate comparison for fair wages; she and husband Tommy cut the paycheck right down the middle, while she earns additional pay for also serving as the worship pastor. (This setup prevents one scenario the researchers described: Some churches view pastors’ wives as a benefit since they may be expected to volunteer or do unpaid work, whereas pastors’ husbands—especially when they work full-time outside the church—aren’t viewed as offering the same perk.)

The Bizarre Hacking Scandal That Democrats And The Press Are Happy To Ignore

Scandal: When federal officials arrested Rep.

Stranger still has been the Democrats' nonresponse to this unfolding scandal.

Worldview Flows from Heart and Mind

Philosopher James Sire defines worldview as “a commitment, a fundamental orientation of the heart, that can be expressed as a story or in a set of presuppositions (assumptions which may be true, partially true or entirely false) that we hold (consciously or subconsciously, consistently or inconsistently) about the basic constitution of reality, and that provides the foundation on which we live and move and have our being.”[1]

The No. 1 Reason Churches End Up in Court Is No Longer Child Abuse

The CLT analysis—a review of state appellate and federal court rulings—found that 8.7 percent of church court cases last year addressed property related-issues, down from 10.2 percent in 2015. However, property cases still ranked as the new No. 1 reason because child sex abuse fell even more, down to 8.3 percent in 2016 from 11.7 percent in 2015.

What Jesus Meant When He Called Us Family

One way to gain a better understanding of what Jesus meant by declarations like these is to look at the early church. Here, the culture of collectivism reigned, meaning those who lived in that time valued the needs of the group over the needs of the individual. This is quite opposite from the individualism seen in western culture. Individualism isn't inherently bad, but if we want to understand Scripture in the way the writers intended, a basic grasp of the culture of the time is helpful.

When Worship Lyrics Miss the Mark

It’s Sunday night, after a day of worship with the people of God. And musical worship is such an important part of our embodied life together. But I don’t think we’ve ever looked at the lyrics of a contemporary worship song in a question. We do today. “Hello, Pastor John! My name is Samuel, a young minister through music. My church’s worship team struggles with a new worship song — ‘What A Beautiful Name’ — a widely acclaimed song because of its musical orchestration and its reflection on God’s glory and the kingship of Christ. However, my worship team finds the lyrics of the second verse questionable: ‘You didn’t want heaven without us, so, Jesus, you brought heaven down.’ Our question is, Does saying, ‘You didn’t want heaven without us’ imply a man-centered gospel? The statement isn’t necessarily false, but the implications could be skewed. That’s our fear. Additionally, the word ‘so’ is used afterwards, implying that the following statement of ‘bringing heaven down’ was founded upon the first statement of not wanting heaven without us. Much like the word ‘therefore,’ ‘so’ implies heaven was brought down in response to God not wanting heaven without us.

Mormons Are Not Christians Because the Mormon Jesus Is Not the Christian Christ | Cold Case Christianity

While Mormons and Christians may refer to Jesus by name, they are clearly describing two different beings. Jesus’ identity is more than His name; it is the collection of His unique characteristics and features. In many ways, I am far more similar to the other Jim Wallace’s in my family than the Mormon Jesus is to the historic, orthodox Jesus of Christianity. When we ask our Mormon friends and family members, “Do you trust Jesus as your Savior?” they will most certainly answer in the affirmative. But the more important question is the second one we’ve been examining: “To which Jesus are you referring?” In answering this second question, it’s quickly apparent we are talking about two different beings. The earliest prophets of Mormonism (Joseph Smith and Brigham Young) understood the differences between the Mormon Jesus and the Christian Christ. Neither Smith nor Young had any interest in being identified as Christians; they rejected Christianity as a corrupt theistic system that needed restoration and saw Mormonism as the true restoration of the faith, including its redefinition of Jesus.

Study: children of same-sex couples do less well than those of married couples

Almost all studies of same-sex parenting have concluded there is “no difference” in a range of outcome measures for children who live in a household with same-sex parents compared to children living with married opposite-sex parents. Recently, some work based on the US census has suggested otherwise, but those studies have considerable drawbacks. Here, a 20% sample of the 2006 Canada census is used to identify self-reported children living with same-sex parents, and to examine the association of household type with children’s high school graduation rates. This large random sample allows for control of parental marital status, distinguishes between gay and lesbian families, and is large enough to evaluate differences in gender between parents and children. Children living with gay and lesbian families in 2006 were about 65 % as likely to graduate compared to children living in opposite sex marriage families. Daughters of same-sex parents do considerably worse than sons.
