11 'Mostly Children and Elderly' Killed, 18 Injured in Bloody Massacre at Nigerian Church

In an attack Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari has condemned as "unspeakable sacrilege," an early morning mass at St. Philip's Catholic Church in Ozubulu was turned into a bloody massacre on Sunday as gunmen entered the church and fatally shot at least 11 people and injured 18 others.

Are Your Kids Ready for Apologetics?

My children are still young, so it’s easy to spend little time thinking about teaching them apologetics. We get lost in the hustle and craziness of homework and baseball and tests and “Do I have any clean socks?”, and well, just getting dinner on the table each night is a challenge. Yet as they are getting older, I want to teach them the Biblical truths that will equip them to withstand spiritual attacks and answer the tough questions that they might someday face from their peers.

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.

The Future of the North American Church? | Reasonable Faith

I am writing you because I am quite in desperation. The church in which I have been a member all of my life has turned into a politically correct hellhole. The transformation which took place in the last few years can only be described as through and through evil and anti-Christian. It’s really hard to give an adequate explanation about just how badly my church has gone the way down. After banning the cross from the church (“because it could offend Jews and Muslims”) the madmen we have as a pastor has decided now to read “Das Kapital” by Karl Marx and “Also sprach Zarathustra” by Friedrich Nietzsche in our church and has decided not to read the holy Bible again, because it is “a racist and misogynistic book”. The apostle Paul – shockingly enough - has been called a “Nazi” and “a woman hating bigot” by the pastor and our very forefathers are constantly attacked for the crusades and their supposed homophobia. The pastor has also started to curse the Lord (in ways which I am not going to repeat). I and some of my fellow brothers and sisters in Christ have stopped attending my church altogether and have chosen to boycott this monstrosity of a church and the deeply blasphemous movement that has taken over.

On the other hand, it could mean that no one’s tried to implement the stateless nirvana at the end of Marx’s story. (Remember, that’s what Marx and his followers meant by “communism.”) In that case, why aren’t those who say “true communism hasn’t been tried” calling for the abolition of the state altogether?

You Don’t Have to Hide: The Freedom of Confession

Today, we experience the same mercy from the Father. Nothing is hidden from God (Hebrews 4:13). We can try to hide and pretend, but he knows every sinful thought and deed. We can’t hide from him. But even with that knowledge of our sin, Jesus bore the full wrath that we deserve, and now we are covered by the righteousness of Christ. We can freely share our sin with God and others because we’ve been forgiven of it.

Still Not Professionals

Still Not Professionals: Ten Pleas for Today’s Pastors is a celebration and extension of John Piper’s Brothers, We Are Not Professionals . With two brief exhortations from Piper and eight others from veteran pastors, this short ebook aims to strengthen and challenge Christians in general, and pastors in particular, for the labor of everyday life and ministry. The contributors were asked to express their “heart of hearts” for fellow leaders. You’ll find these chapters tap into profound human themes, in both the pastor and his flock, and will be of use, we hope, beyond the North American context of the contributors.

Why Christians Should Avoid Watching Rape Scenes

However, the depiction of rape in movies and TV tempts me to draw a hard line. The apparent psychological cost for actors and other Hollywood professionals—combined with many directors’ choice to depict rape as sexy—seems too great to warrant any entertainment or educational value. My view comes not from a prudish fear of bodies but from a deep respect for them; what they do really matters. I have to ask myself, then: What are my consumption habits requiring actors to do with their bodies?

Is There a Better Way to Fight 'Political Correctness'?

In a few cases, political correctness has been openly advocated as a way to protect the vulnerable and promote justice, but for the most part, those particularly concerned with promoting particular speech codes don’t think of themselves as advocating “political correctness.” Instead, they recognize that the way we speak affects how we think and act, and that cultivating just and respectful language is a way of creating a more just and equitable society.

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.

Andrew T. Walker » Why Are We Having This Conversation? Thoughts on the Smith-Jacobs Orthodoxy Debate

One other element I that I cannot help shake is the pastoral malpractice that questions like this breed in the lives of Christians who do not see this as an intellectual exercise. This is the element that brings me grief. Imagine you’re a woman in her twenties battling same-sex attraction, or perhaps where a same-sex relationship developed but ended — what do you say to a woman like this amid this conversation? These are pastoral questions with embodied significance. It is never just an academic debate when the consciences and souls of faithful saints are in the crosshairs. What do you tell her when her conscience, affections, and loyalties to Christ and her sexual desires are in tension because she’s a faithful Christian who takes the words of Jesus seriously? Should we really put forward questions that invite doubt on the church’s teachings? Unhelpful, speculative debate about biblical teaching overlooks the pain & confusion this sows in Christians battling same-sex attraction. In the interest of intellectual debate, defining biblical teaching down to the level of adiaphora hurts faithful Christians looking to Christ’s sufficiency.

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.

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. . . .

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.

5 Myths about Teaching Apologetics to Students

Training students in apologetics is one of the most important tasks for any youth leader today. Whether through classroom teaching, speaking, personal conversation, on apologetics mission trips, or through writing, I have been training students to defend their faith for nearly two decades. While there are certainly some exceptions, in my experience, the vast majority love it .

http://pastorrick.com/devotional/english/in-a-season-of-loss-release-your-grief1

What do you do with your feelings? You don’t repress them or stuff them deep inside you. You release them — you give them to God. You cry out to God, “God, I’m hurt! I’m grieving! This is a tough one to take.” If you want a good example of this, read through the book of Psalms, where many times David spills his guts and says, “God, I’m in a tough time right now. I am really, really hurting.” You cry out to God, just like David did.

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.

He is the god of this world and the whole world lies under him.

Q & A with Dr. Craig: Would Finding Jesus' Corpse Falsify Christianity?

Now, the question I'm wrestling with is this: you examine and refute a number of natural explanations for resurrection of Christ and the facts surrounding this event. However, if it should so happen that archaeologists find Christ's body tomorrow morning, then one of those natural explanations for the resurrection of Christ would have to be true! Yet you have ardently maintained that they could not possibly be true. Is this at all problematic philosophically?

Three Puzzles Evolution Can’t Solve

For more than a century Christians have looked for the scientific silver bullet that would destroy Darwinian evolution and prove biblical creation to be true. We already know from God’s revealed, infallible Word how the universe, the earth, and all life came into being: He spoke them into existence (Genesis 1; Exodus 20:11 ; Hebrews 11:3 ). This fact alone refutes Darwinian evolution. Yet in a world where secular researchers reject the supernatural and divine revelation, many Christians still feel compelled to provide empirical (observable and repeatable) evidence to confirm the Bible’s claim.

The Cross: Powerful Reasons to Believe in God

Edwards mused, “And yet he is infinitely gracious and merciful. Though his justice be so strict with respect to all sin, and every breach of the law, yet he has grace sufficient for every sinner, and even the chief of sinners. And it is not only sufficient for the most unworthy to show them mercy, and bestow some good upon them, but to bestow the greatest good; yea, it is sufficient to bestow all good upon them, and to do all things for them. There is no benefit or blessing that they can receive, so great but the grace of Christ is sufficient to bestow it on the greatest sinner that ever lived. And not only so, but so great is his grace, that nothing is too much as the means of this good. It is sufficient not only to do great things, but also to suffer in order to do it, and not only to suffer, but to suffer most extremely even unto death, the most terrible of natural evils; and not only death, but the most ignominious and tormenting, and every way the most terrible that men could inflict; yea, and greater sufferings than men could inflict, who could only torment the body. He had sufferings in his soul, that were the more immediate fruits of the wrath of God against the sins of those he undertakes for” (Jonathan Edwards).
