REBOOT | Youth Apologetics

Once a year, REBOOT meets in the centre of London to explore questions such as ‘How can we know God exists?’, ‘Why does God allow suffering?’ and ‘Hasn’t science disproved God?’. REBOOT provides a place for young people from 12-18 years old, with or without any faith or church background, to raise their objections and investigate different perspectives. Through its annual conference, online resources, and speaking invitations, REBOOT aims to equip young people to understand and be able to answer some of these big questions for themselves. Our team from the Zacharias Trust and the OCCA [the Oxford Centre for Christian Apologetics] want you to have confidence in what you believe, and the chance to be honest about your doubts. Since its launch in 2013, REBOOT has welcomed over 1000 young people, and this year we are excited to see more of you than ever!

Consolidation Coal Co. says it will appeal Butcher’s win—he alleged the company’s hand scanner had to do with the “mark of the Beast.” The company refused to give him the same accommodations they gave to employees missing fingers.

Hungarian Camerawoman Fired For Kicking Refugees

A camera operator for a Hungarian nationalist TV station has been fired after she was filmed violently kicking and tripping migrants fleeing a holding camp. At one point, she intentionally trips a man running with a young boy in his arms. The scene unfolded as dozens of families, children and individuals broke through a police line, attempting to escape a camp set up by Hungarian officials to house the migrants as they flee violence in their home countries. Many are attempting to get to Germany and Austria. There are reports of harsh conditions in the camps where Hungary has held many of the people attempting to get to nearby countries. In a statement, N1TV said, “The camera operator behavior was completely unacceptable."

Introducing First Graders to Words

I am able to do what some people would call the “menial task” of tying shoes, cleaning faces, comforting crying children with boo-boos, and caring for someone who’s sick or homesick and needs mom. Yet these are some of the most vital tasks. I get to love a room of children with different needs. I’m able to get to know, love, and serve the families and parents of every child, both in my classroom and the school community as a whole. I keep those relationships year after year as they leave my classroom and grow with other teachers. Serving the parents with my fellow administrators and teachers is the biggest joy.

RZIM in Asia: A Prayer for Singapore Elections | RZIM

On Friday, September 11, Singapore will hold national elections. “Singapore as a nation will be going to the polls tomorrow. It is a critical decision time, a defining election for this influential country,” Ravi Zacharias told a gathering of leaders on Thursday. “Singapore has one of the strongest economies in the world, and it has become a center for education with many opportunities for the youth. It is remarkable when you look at what has been accomplished in five decades to make it such a powerhouse, and people will vote at the ballot box to determine what they want the future to look like.”

How to Fight Addiction in a Pornographic Culture

So if I am living at a three or four and a five or a six really doesn’t bother me anymore, then when I get to a nine, my goal in dealing with somebody who is at a nine is not to say, “Come back to a five or six.” My goal with them is to say, “I want you to recognize, not just that this is an issue, but that even those things that are down here in the areas that we are not even bothered by are issues.” Not so that the person becomes afraid of looking around, but so that the person becomes aware of their need for Christ to cleanse their minds, not just of the website where I am watching pornographic sex, but also of my lack of sensitivity to those every day examples of pornography that are around me.

The Shadrach Option

Which brings us to our present situation. The Supreme Court’s recent decree about marriage isn’t just a run-of-the-mill policy difference. It’s an act of high defiance against God, nature, and history. The State is attempting to arrogate to itself the right to define marriage — to define what men and women are, and what they are for. But God the Father Almighty did not give them that authority. (And for what it’s worth, neither does the Constitution. The fact that the Court found a right to same-sex mirage lying under a broken down penumbra in one of the amendments somewhere doesn’t mean that the rest of us have to pretend that we can’t read.) God has given all authority to his Son, the crucified and risen Lord Jesus, and our system of government gives such prerogatives to the people, not our black-robed betters, or the Deep State, or even President Executive Order.

Christian Virtue in the Age of Authenticity

For starters, it should be obvious (but isn’t) that if your authentic self is a boorish self-promoter, it’s hardly a great win for the cause of honor that you are true to your own personality. Many pundits have tried to explain why Donald Trump has maintained his remarkable ride atop the GOP polls, and likely their theories about economic angst and conservative disappointment with the GOP establishment have something to do with it (as does almost non-stop media coverage for months). But Trump also benefits from being virtually gaffe proof, not because he doesn’t make any but because he makes them so often and doesn’t seem to give a rip. It’s not for me to tell you what to think of Trump’s policies, but I think by any objective measure he has shown himself to be someone who, how shall we say, would not meet the criteria for church office laid out in 1 Timothy 3. But as a candidate in the Age of Authenticity, he’s a perfect fit. In 2012, Mitt Romney was undone because of an off the cuff comment about 47% of the country that don’t pay taxes.

The End of Purity Culture

Ok...I usually only post comments on Facebook to spit out what I believe is my opinion and what I believe is right especially as it applies from the lenses of scripture. (that and the occasional stupid post from pop culture stuff) I am a 39 single Male who came to have a regular church home after my teens in fact I started going to what I consider my "home church" when I was 20. This did not stop me from getting involved with the Youth group as a sponsor and attending many True Love Waits or other Purity culture rallies. I found them to be missing God's grace for those who already had sex there was just a don't do it or else mentality. In fact it was so shameful to talk about sex except in don't do it terms that I wouldn't be surprised at how many youth suffered in shame not knowing who to talk to after they had crossed the line of physical sex. Never mind the fact Jesus challenges us to keep our hearts pure above all else) I am one of those people waiting for marriage and I do not regret my choice in its obedience to God. What I will rant about is something I have seen in the comments and I heartily agree with concerning marriage being the end all and be all of Christian existence.

Why Judicial Supremacy Isn’t Compatible with Constitutional Supremacy

More Supreme Court A Tennessee Judge Improperly Trolls the Supreme Court The Sixth Circuit Shouldn't Be Ignoring SCOTUS's Hobby Lobby Decision Schlock Social Science vs. Justice Thomas Even when arguments about judicial supremacy appear to have no practical import, however, they lie beneath judgments about how we should talk about judicial decisions. Kasich’s side of that argument pays rhetorical fealty to the Court: It may make mistakes, but it deserves respect even so. It is dangerous, people on that side often believe, not to give it that respect. Huckabee’s side insists that the greater danger would come from not denouncing certain rulings as illegitimate. These are the ones in which the Court gets the Constitution wrong in a deeper sense: It substitutes its own desires for the text, original understanding, and structure of the Constitution. In those cases, the Court is not really engaged in interpreting the Constitution at all.

Hundreds of Muslim Refugees Convert to Christianity in Germany

Hundreds of refugees seeking asylum in Germany have converted from Islam to Christianity at an evangelical church in Berlin. Though the country has taken in thousands of refugees from Syria in recent weeks, most of the converts at pastor Gottfried Martens’ Trinity Church in the last two years are from Iran and Afghanistan. According to the AP , the local evangelical church has gained a reputation for reaching out to Muslims and offering a course in the basic tenets of Christianity. One factor that may be contributing to the high number of religious conversions, though, is the increased chance of recieving legal political asylum as a Christian. In countries like Iran and Afghanistan, converting from Islam is a grave crime, meaning Germany could be more likely to grant refugee converts asylum if they faced almost certain persecution if they returned home. However, pastor Martens told the AP that just 10 percent of those who convert abandon the church, adding, "I know there are—again and again—people coming here because they have some kind of hope regarding their asylum. I am inviting them to join us because I know that whoever comes here will not be left unchanged.

J.I. Packer: How I Learned to Live Joyfully

First, it is a special pleasure to read an author with whom one resonates. That is how the writer, who called himself Qohelet—Hebrew for “Gatherer,” a title that in Greek became Ecclesiastes, the “Assembly-man”—strikes me. I see him as a reflective senior citizen, a public teacher of wisdom, something of a stylist and wordsmith. As his official testimonial or third-person testimony (it might be either) in 12:10 shows, this man took his instructional task very seriously and labored to communicate memorably. Whether he was the Solomon of history or someone impersonating him—not to deceive but to make points in the most effective way—we do not know. All I am sure of is that each point has maximum strength if it comes from the real Solomon at the end of his life.

Keep Speaking

Into a world that has repressed the truth and asserted the glorious order and fine tuning of the universe, the biological richness of earth, and the rational mind of man to comprehend quasars and quarks are the products of eons of chaos, unintelligent macroevolution, and unimaginable odds, we must lovingly speak that “what can be known about God is plain to [us], because God has shown it to [us]. For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So [we] are without excuse” (Romans 1:19–20).

Are Comfortable Christians Compromisers?

However, my answer is that he should find in Scripture a theology of contentment in comfort as well as contentment in pain. Yes, yes, yes. He should. And if he hasn’t found it, which it doesn’t sound like he has, he should pursue it, and I will try to give a little guideline here. That is exactly what Paul said in Philippians 4:11–12, “Not that I am speaking of being in need, for I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content. I know how to be brought low and I know how to abound.” That would be Noah’s concern: “Can I be okay feeling comfortable?” So go to school here, right? “In any and every circumstance I have learned the secret of facing plenty and hunger, abundance and need. I can do all things [both of those] through him who strengthens me” (verses 12-13).

22
Would Jesus Vote?

I’ve always been taught that voting was an important part of being a “good Christian” in America, but I’ve recently started questioning whether that is biblical. After all, Jesus didn’t get involved in politics during His time on earth. Are Christians called to participate in elections or stay out of politics?

A Prophetic Minority: Kingdom, Culture, and Mission in a New Era

And he rolled up the scroll and gave it back to the attendant and sat down. And the eyes of all in the synagogue were fixed on him. And he began to say to them, “Today this Scripture has been fulfilled in your hearing.” And all spoke well of him and marveled at the gracious words that were coming from his mouth. And they said, “Is not this Joseph’s son?” And he said to them, “Doubtless you will quote to me this proverb, ‘Physician, heal yourself.’ What we have heard you did at Capernaum, do here in your hometown as well.” And he said, “Truly, I say to you, no prophet is acceptable in his hometown. But in truth, I tell you, there were many widows in Israel in the days of Elijah, when the heavens were shut up three years and six months, and a great famine came over all the land, and Elijah was sent to none of them but only to Zarephath, in the land of Sidon, to a woman who was a widow. And there were many lepers in Israel in the time of the prophet Elisha, and none of them was cleansed, but only Naaman the Syrian.” When they heard these things, all in the synagogue were filled with wrath.

Donald Trump is the Founders' Worst Nightmare

The pre-eminent demagogue of our time is Barack Obama. Why is Mr. Wehner so sanguine about turning the entire country over to him? How does he arrive at the conclusion that Republicans who want to return to power, and see that demogoguery is the path to political power, would not succumb to it? Everything that Mr. Wehner says about Trump is far more true of Obama, who played the demagogue to the hilt, down to the Greek columns and the Canute-like pretense of the holding back of the seas. Good grief, to quote Charlie Brown. Mr. Wehner stops just short of acknowledging that our Constitutional Republic is gone. Not a small share of the blame belongs to those of influence in the Conservative movement who have not mustered the intellect, the will, the vision, or the capacity to counter Obama. Trump is the consequence of Obama’s rise to power and his “fundamental” transformation of America. America is now like Argentina under Peron, and will go the way of Argentina over the next half-century, from the major economy in the world to an economic basket case–from the pre-eminent political and military power to a non-entity.

The Contradictory Recollections of Near-Death Experiences - Christian Research Institute

Todd Burpo with Lynn Vincent, Heaven Is for Real: A Little Boy’s Astounding Story of His Trip to Heaven and Back (Nashville: Thomas Nelson, 2010), 136. Concerning the theological question of whether or not infants go to heaven when they die, for example, Burpo writes, “We had wanted to believe that our unborn child had gone to heaven. Even though the Bible is largely silent on this point, we had accepted it by faith. But now, we had an eyewitness [in Colton]: a daughter we had never met was waiting eagerly for us in eternity” (97). Colton seems also to have settled for Burpo the right interpretation of Revelation 9:6–10: the images presented in this passage are not mere symbols for kingdoms or military machinery; rather, they are actual monsters whom Burpo himself will fight with either sword or bow and arrow (Colton can’t recall which) in the battle of Armageddon (135–39).

30 tips for new seminary students

Take the languages early and often. Not only is this vital for any pastor or teacher’s tool belt, but it also allows you to slow down and look more closely at the biblical text in Greek/Hebrew as well as English. It is hard work but well worth it. Once you take the languages, consistently read in them. You will begin to gain more proficiency the more you read. Personally, I find it best to set a time goal rather than a verse goal. In the beginning set a goal of 5-10 minutes a day and gradually build on that. In my experience, when you set your goal via verses or chapters you can get stuck on a verse and spend more time than planned trying to make your way through it.

The Far Less Sensational Truth about Jesus’ ‘Wife’

Moreover—and this is critical—we do not have a single historical source in all of early Christianity that suggests Jesus was married. None. There is nothing about Jesus being married in the canonical gospels, in apocryphal gospels, in the church fathers, or anywhere else. Even if this new gospel claims that Jesus was married, it is out of step with all the other credible historical evidence we have about his life. As King herself noted, “This is the only extant ancient text which explicitly portrays Jesus as referring to a wife. It does not , however, provide evidence that the historical Jesus was married” (p. 1 here ).

Maze Runner to God

I am a fairly well-read and (obviously) opinionated person. Does being submissive mean I can never disagree with my husband about anything? Does it mean I should never even want to think and talk about “issues,” but rather I should always be busy doing domestic work? Should I do everything on a schedule, since “there is a time and a season for every purpose under heaven,” despite the fact that I hate a highly scheduled life? Should I buy a pre-packaged Bible-based curriculum to use in homeschooling my children, or send them to a Classical school, since that seems to be the most current consensus of what constitutes a “Christian “ education? How clean does my house have to be to please God, anyway? Is it a sin to have a ring of grime in my bathtub? Should I necessarily be reading something by Elisabeth Elliot rather than a medieval murder mystery or a book of essays about free-market economics? Where is that fine line sewn, the one which merges God’s will for us in his Word, and his will that he planted within our own personality?

Is the Justice Movement Just a Trend?

I think justice resonates so deeply with people today because it is supposed to. The Christian faith has and always will include serving the least of these in our world. Following Jesus implies a certain a level of action (James 1:22). When our faith does not include the action of serving others, we grow stagnant. But when we are serving others, a level of joy and fulfillment happens that is otherwise impossible.

Why Doesn't God Reveal the Reasons For Permitting Evil and Suffering?

On July 27th & 28th, 2012, an On Guard Christian Apologetics conference was held in Tulsa, Oklahoma by the Reasonable Faith Tulsa chapter ( http://reasonablefaithtulsa.org/ ). The conference was named after Dr. William Lane Craig's new training manual in Christian apologetics entitled, On Guard ( http://www.reasonablefaith.org/on-gua... ), and featured Dr. Craig, and other first rate Christian scholars. At the conference, Dr. Craig spoke on the Problem of Evil and Suffering, and engaged in a lengthy question and answer time with the audience. In this video, Dr Craig answers the question, "Why doesn't God reveal the reasons for permitting evil and suffering?" To view the entire video: http://youtu.be/onnG3cMG_c0 We welcome your comments in the Reasonable Faith forums: http://www.reasonablefaith.org/forums/ Be sure to also visit Reasonable Faith's other channel: http://www.youtube.com/reasonablefait...

This concise guide is filled with illustrations, sidebars, and memorizable steps to help Christians stand their ground and defend their faith with reason and precision. In his engaging style, Dr. Craig offers four arguments for God’s existence, defends the historicity of Jesus’ personal claims and resurrection, addresses the problem of suffering, and shows why religious relativism doesn’t work. Along the way, he shares his story of following God’s call in his own life. This one-stop, how-to-defend-your-faith manual will equip Christians to advance faith conversations deliberately, applying straightforward, cool-headed arguments. They will discover not just what they believe, but why they believe—and how being on guard with the truth has the power to change lives forever.

Snapping away the new ropes, Samson faced his attackers like a real-life superhero.

Is Your Church Raising an Army of Skeptics?

My students have a different journal question/topic every day when they enter the classroom. Yesterday the question was, "What is your biggest doubt or struggle with Christianity, God, and/or the Bible?" When it came time for discussion, one of the students said the following: "I sometimes doubt my faith because I hear people talk about all of the amazing experiences they have with God speaking to them, or how they feel the Holy Spirit during worship, and stuff like that. I just don't feel like I have that, and it makes me wonder sometimes if there is something wrong with me or if, I dunno, maybe they are faking it." Another student chimed in, "I know right. When people say stuff like, 'I was praying and I heard God say something' I am just like, 'I pray, but I don't hear anything. What am I doing wrong?'" A third student said, "I wonder sometimes, you know, if it is really God that people are feeling or if it is just them getting into the music. I mean, I get goosebumps sometimes too, but I don't think that means it is God or something." Still another added, "And when people like pastors and stuff say that we 'just need to pray harder and ask God to show us his will for our lives', I just get confused.

10 Questions For Rule-of-Law Critics Of Kim Davis

But this simply underscores the importance of question seven. How will we have anyone left to fight if our elected officials resign to protect their consciences? And if you don’t want them to resign, but to instead issue marriage licenses, why is it okay for elected officials to offer a pinch of incense to the emperor, but not okay for the bakers and florists? And if we’ve established the precedent that we’re comfortable issuing the licenses despite our religious objections on this hill, then on what grounds will we fight the battle on that hill? Once we’ve grown used to retreating, how will we break the habit?

During Jesus’ earthly ministry, one of the primary ways He would instruct His disciples was through parables. People would gather from far and wide in order to listen to what Jesus said about the kingdom of God, and the most common way He would explain the kingdom was in parables. But what does God want us to learn from these parables? In this series, Dr. R.C. Sproul examines several parables of Jesus, exploring the rich truths they reveal about who Jesus is and what He came to achieve through His life, death, and resurrection.
