Distorting, Manipulating, Avoiding Facts — And Creating Atheists | The Stream

Prof. Peter Boghossian is dead set on creating atheists out of Christians and others. He’s got a strategy to do it, and in a strange, sad way it works.

Jennifer Lawrence Claims Horror Film 'Mother!' Is All About the Bible

"It depicts the rape and torment of Mother Earth," she said. "It's not for everybody. It's a hard film to watch. But it's important for people to understand the allegory we intended. That they know I represent Mother Earth; Javier, whose character is a poet, represents a form of God, a creator; Michelle Pfeiffer is an Eve to Ed Harris's Adam, there's Cain and Abel and the setting sometimes resembles the Garden of Eden."

Does God Just Want Me to Be Happy?

Without even knowing it, this student had adopted a form of Moralistic Therapeutic Deism (MTD). One aspect of MTD is the belief that God exists and that the goal of life is to be happy and feel good about oneself. One huge way in which you can tell that someone is following MTD is by the way they respond to sin. When they are committing a sin, they will think that is it an acceptable thing to do as long as they are still happy. They will not look at what God has to say about that sin since they don’t think God really plays a big role in our lives.

Do Not Be Anxious About Your Life

The second reason Jesus gives for not being anxious is in verse 26: “Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?” What we see when we look at the birds is not a lesson in laziness. They dig their worms and snatch their bugs and pad their nests with strings and leaves. But Jesus says it is God that feeds them. What we see when we look at the birds is a creature who does not act as though God is only a merciful provider for today but won’t be tomorrow. Birds don’t anxiously horde things for the day of God’s demise. They go about their work as though when the sun comes up tomorrow, God will still be God.

Wayward Children Need to See Your Weakness

But also, knowing how deeply loved we are by God, we can ask for forgiveness for Jesus’s sake. It’s surprising how humbling ourselves before God makes room for faith and love to grow. Suddenly our children’s failings seem more familiar to us. They are like us — they need Jesus and so do we. We need hearts that love God first and best, and so do they. It turns out that not just children are wayward — all parents have been as well. This is what our children need to see: we parents have needs just as great as theirs.

Loneliness and the Call to Community

At the perfect time, God sent His Son into the world. Christ came to redeem a people for Himself through His own blood—a community chosen before the world began who would wear His righteousness and once again reflect their Maker. Through their union with Christ, all those who by faith trust in Him for their salvation are part of that community God promised so long ago. “And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s offspring, heirs according to promise” (Gal. 3:29). We are those countless stars in the sky, the grains of sand on the seashore that together make up the people of God. We are part of His body, the church. United to Christ, we are also united to the saints of old and to the saints sitting in the pew next to us.

BP This Week: Christians in the Midst of the Storm

When government agencies respond to natural disasters, they rely in large part on Christian organizations to help get the job done. That’s the case with the aftermath of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. Our hosts point out that those who think religiously-motivated charity is no big deal and could easily be replaced are out-of-touch. It’s important because FEMA is currently deciding whether to lift a ban on giving relief funds to churches and other religious institutions affected by the storms. Does Christian conviction belong in the public square? It’s a question the Supreme Court will soon decide in the case of Masterpiece Cake Shop and its owner, Jack Phillips, who gladly serve gay customers but refuse to help put on gay weddings. This and much more on this week’s episode of BreakPoint this Week.

Your Letter to Your Future Spouse

Undoubtedly, marriage is a treasured gift many Christians will receive. Instituted by God before the fall, and intended to showcase the beauty of the gospel, marriage ought to be highly regarded by God’s people. But marriage is no savior. It cannot rescue, redeem, or ultimately fulfill us. It has no final power to save us from our loneliness, emptiness, or purposelessness. Believing marriage can do the work of God himself is to serve an idol.

One Quran or Many Qurans? Speakers' Corner Debate Highlights (Hatun Tash vs. Mansur Ahmed)

Muslims often claim that the Quran has been perfectly preserved from the time it was revealed to Muhammad, and that there has never been a change to a single letter or diacritical mark of the Quran. Yet the Muslim sources show that entire chapters and individual verses were lost, and there are numerous differences even among Quranic manuscripts today. In this debate at Speakers' Corner, Hatun Tash takes on Mansur Ahmed on the topic: "One Quran or Many Qurans?" Visit DCCI's YouTube page here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCf0M...

Susan Rice Lied About Her Role In Obama Admin Unmasking Scandal

Has Rice earned that trust? This, after all, is the woman who went on national television and repeated a bunch of Ben Rhodes-authored falsehoods regarding the September 11, 2012, Benghazi terror attacks, claiming they were a “spontaneous reaction” to “hateful and offensive video.” This is the woman who went on PBS to lie about her role in unmasking, although there was apparently nothing wrong with it. Rice didn’t tell Woodruff “I can’t disclose that kind of sensitive information,” or “no comment,” she told her “I know nothing about this.” Rice is extraordinarily comfortable lying to the American people.

Feelings Vs. Truth: Building your life upon God's unchanging Word

Among the most popular messages of our society today is the proclamation, “Follow your heart!” The culture has conditioned us to place a very high value on our own desires and emotions. In fact, we are encouraged to base both our major life decisions and our daily lifestyle choices upon how we feel. “Don’t know what to do? Just listen to your heart! Do what feels right to you!” This advice permeates everything from love songs to children’s movies.

Infinite Time Plus Chance?

No one would think a computer could come into being without an intelligent designer. It is unlikely that a monkey in a print shop could set Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address in type. If we found a copy of it, we would conclude than an intelligent mind was the only possible explanation for the printing. How much more incredible is it to believe that the universe, in its infinite complexity, could have happened by chance?

6 Date Ideas for This Weekend That Literally Don’t Cost Anything

I remember an expensive first date when I was in my early 20s. I was introduced to this girl and I took her out to the Cheesecake Factory. The atmosphere was pleasant and conversation was fine. After I paid the high-priced bill we started walking to our cars. She asked, “What kind of car do you drive?” Immediately, big yellow flags went up in my mind. I told her I drive a Honda Civic. I asked her the same question in turn. She said, “I drive a BMW!”

Religion: What Is It, Where Did It Come from and How Does the Bible View It?

Because the gods of the nations are idols (Jeremiah 10:1–11; Acts 19:26) only God’s special revelation in the gospel can turn people from their idolatry to trust in the living and true God (1 Thessalonians 1:5, 9). The gospel, therefore, can be seen as subversively fulfilling world religions. The gospel is subversive because it stands as the contradiction and confrontation to all manifestations of world religions. It makes a call for repentance from idolatry to the true and living God (Acts 17:30, 14:15). But it is also the fulfilment of what these false religions seek. Since idols are counterfeits of the one true God, the philosophical, ethical, and epistemological questions that other religions ask (but ultimately cannot answer) are answered by the triune God alone. 6

It Looks Like President Trump Struck a Very Tentative Deal With Democrats to Protect DACA

Late Wednesday night, Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi issued a statement saying they’d reached a deal with President Donald Trump on enshrining DACA into law, protecting the some 800,000 Dreamers from deportation. That deal, according to them, included funding for extra border security but—crucially, for Democrats—did not include funding for “the wall.”

EULOGY FOR NABEEL QURESHI

We have just heard that Nabeel Qureshi has passed away earlier today. Jay wanted to leave a small eulogy to his legacy, thanking Nabeel for what he has done, and the impact he has made on so many hundreds of Muslims who have come to know Jesus because of his writings and his debates. He will be truly missed by those of us who have been left behind, but Nabeel, who sought Allah and found Jesus, is finally home with his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. © Pfander Centre for Apologetics, 2017

On technology and preaching — Southern Equip

As an expositor I am delivering a message from the King. Therefore, when I’m preaching I want all eyes on me, not wandering into some starry abyss of high-def images born along by a Hans Zimmer-like score. (Can you imagine coming into the presence of the King of glory and while he’s talking you look down at your smartphone to read a text? Do not expect him to take it lightly when you look up and say, “Wait, what was that? I missed what you said because I had to reply to a text real quick.” This would not end well for you.)

We Should Always Take Life ‘One Day At a Time’

In trying to juggle all my responsibilities (on one foot, it feels like, without Corina), I've gotten angry a few times. One afternoon, my oldest son said, "Dad, you're in a foul mood." He was right. And I was humbled. I had to look in the mirror and say, "I'm frustrated, and I'm taking it out on my kids right now because of deeper issues--feeling like I need to be in control, and that things should go my way, and that I am entitled to a life without inconvenience." Trials unearth our deeper issues and reveal the idols of the heart.

Pray Them Home: Three Prayers for Prodigal Children

Although we don’t have a guarantee of our children’s salvation or the outcome we may desire, we can be confident that God is faithful to his promises and hears our prayers. One of the great weapons God has given parents to fight against the world’s pull and the enemy’s schemes over their children is to pray the way Christ did for Peter: “Simon, Simon, behold, Satan demanded to have you, that he might sift you like wheat, but I have prayed for you that your faith may not fail. And when you have turned again, strengthen your brothers” (Luke 22:31–32).

36
Protestants: The Most ‘Catholic’ of Christians

Additionally, the new statement of faith, crafted by a team of Protestant theologians and church leaders, aims to show that Protestants are actually more catholic (meaning “universal”) than Roman Catholics, who demand allegiance to the Roman pontiff, or than Orthodox Christians, who reject the claims of Rome but still rely heavily on apostolic succession to guarantee faithful Christianity.

37
The Fallacy of Spiritual Gifts

When disciple-making becomes a trek from the highway of personal independence to the narrow path of a dependent faith, legitimate and powerful spiritual gifts are discovered. These gifts are not found in the strengths of our personalities or capabilities, but in the weakness of a trusting subject in the authority of his or her Sovereign. Perhaps all of the Bretts and Noelles who have long been sacredly shackled within the comforts of our org charts will find freedom and joy in seeing the Spirit work through weakness. And, if God’s Church serves in weakness, an increasingly skeptical world is sure to notice the change.

5 Ways to Help Keep Your Kids From Becoming Secularized Worshipers

To secularize something means to remove anything from it that has to do with God or religion. It’s no secret that our society is becoming more and more secularized by the day. American secularism, in particular, is very “me” focused. Everywhere our kids turn, they are met with messages like, “Follow your heart!” and “Believe in yourself!” and “You can be anything you want to be!” With God removed from the picture, these messages can be very enticing.

Welcoming Immigrants Is Central to the Christian Faith

Now, I’m not saying that every time we practice hospitality that we’ll be blessed with a child or even material blessings, but what I am saying is this: Every single time we choose to welcome others with courage rather than fear, every single time we choose to run with excitement to those who need welcoming and every single time we choose to live in the mindset that there is enough to share, we are blessed. When we open our hearts, our homes, our church to the stranger, to the traveler, to the one who may just need community—we open our hearts, our homes and our church to God.

Should We Pull the Plug on Cable News?

To a certain extent, everything does relate to “politics,” but not in the usual way we think of politics. One of the first lessons I learned as a young political science student was that “politics” is not limited to campaigns, elections, and government process. Instead, “politics” is group decision making; hence, we have office politics, church politics, and family politics. 2016 changed my life in a substantial way. Previously, Fox News ran 24/7. No more because it became a Trump propaganda arm. Certain Evangelical leaders were exposed to care more about the world than our Lord. The Bible Belt myth was busted to show who populate our churches or at least claim to be Christians. Civil religion was put on display as the real hope for many. Yet we better not turn off the news or cloister into monasteries, but should be aware of what is happening around us, not just with “them” but with “us.”

Rapid Response: 'Evil Disproves the Existence of God'

In our Rapid Response series, we tackle common concerns about (and objections to) the Christian worldview by providing short, conversational responses. These posts are designed to model what our answers might look like in a one-on-one setting, while talking to a friend or family member. Imagine if someone said, “If God is both all-loving and all-powerful, why does He allow evil things to happen? Doesn’t the mere presence of evil disprove the existence of God?” How would you respond to such a claim? Here is a conversational example of how I recently replied:

The Demanding Faith of Flannery O’Connor

My husband, Charles, has always been a Flannery O’Connor fan, and he introduced me to her personal correspondence. Flannery’s letters reveal a warm, witty, probing woman—nothing like the stern author I’d imagined from her violent stories. She discusses manuscripts she’s rewriting, the books she’s reading, a funny encounter with the telephone repairman, a promise to send more peacock feathers, news of Cousin Katie, complaints about the “idiot legislature,” and an account of a funeral. Throughout the 596 pages, there is a great deal of theology. Flannery insists that she is not a mystic and does not lead a holy life, yet she unapologetically displays her faith: a life of continually turning away from egocentricity and toward God.
