This New Beck Video Is Wild

This Powerful New Netflix Documentary ‘The White Helmets’ Features the Heroes of the Syrian Civil War

Here’s a look at the new short documentary from Netflix that shows a group known as “The White Helmets”—a Nobel Peace Prize nominated collection of volunteers that attempts to save lives after bombings in Syria. The group has saved more than 60,000 lives in the country, during the years-long, brutal civil war. As the trailer notes, hundreds of bombs are dropped across the country every day, and thousands of civilians have been killed. The mission of the White Helmets is to save lives no matter where they are. The trailer looks powerful (warning, it does contain some graphic images of war). The film drops tomorrow.

The Globe Is Warming, But It’s Not Your Fault!

Though it is relatively easy to estimate the amount of heat that greenhouse gases absorb and emit back toward the earth (climatologists call this “forcing”), it is much more difficult to determine how the planet will adjust to the additional heat (climatologists call this “feedback”). Essentially all the current climate models have overestimated the global temperature in the past and future. Many climatologists believe that there are stronger positive feedbacks within the climate than negative feedbacks. In other words, they believe that the climate amplifies warming caused by greenhouse gases rather than moderating it. If that were true, why hasn’t the global temperature already gone out of control? Negative feedback systems, like the thermostat in your house, are known to lead to stability; whereas positive feedback systems often lead to instability, like the deafening audio feedback when a speaker and a microphone are put too close together. It seems more likely that our climate is dominated by negative feedbacks since Earth’s temperature has been amazingly stable for at least 2,000 years with only a 1.

3 Lessons from Netflix’s Adaptation of ‘The Little Prince’

The story also offers moments of allegory; in fact, some argue the entire narrative is an allegory. For example, when the Little Prince is on his way to earth, he meets a myriad of characters, all of them portraits of the consuming and hindering effects of hubris. He meets a king who claims to rule over all with absolute power; he exercises his power over the sun by ordering it to set . . . . but only at sunset. The Little Prince is not fooled, for he sees the king’s “power” is no more than a farce. He’s trying to make himself seem important, but his significance is a vapor.

The Biggest Temple in Town

How much am I building my life around my favorite team and its games, and what important things in life are suffering because of this growing priority? Am I getting so attached to this team and to this season that I’m neglecting much more important realities like family, friends, work, studies, and most significantly the stirring of my heart for Jesus? Am I closer to him because of sports, or are the games subtly moving me away by eclipsing him in my heart?

Life-Risking Courage in the Cause of Love

Blessed are you when others revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you. You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled under people’s feet. You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven. (Matthew 5:11–16)

Life as a dhimmi in medieval Islamic Spain: And what it can teach American Christians today …

Correcting four myths about the history of the Crusades

The verdict seems unanimous. From presidential speeches to role-playing games, the crusades are depicted as a deplorably violent episode in which thuggish Westerners trundled off, unprovoked, to murder and pillage peace-loving, sophisticated Muslims, laying down patterns of outrageous oppression that would be repeated throughout subsequent history. In many corners of the Western world today, this view is too commonplace and apparently obvious even to be challenged.

Gold-Clad LSU Holds Off State, 23-20

Late in the fourth quarter, LSU was stopped inches short of a first down at the Mississippi State 34-yard line. Fitzgerald was forced to leave the game when his helmet came off, and reserve Damien Williams entered to lead the Bulldogs to their first touchdown of the evening. His 24-yard pass to Donald Gray on fourth-and-4 kept the drive alive, and a 27-yard pass to Ross gave the Bulldogs first-and-goal at the LSU 3. Two plays later, Williams ran for a 1-yard touchdown.

My Attachment to St. Augustine

A number of Christians have found my attachment to St. Augustine of Hippo (AD 354–430) peculiar. Some probably think St. Augustine belongs exclusively to the Roman Catholic Church, and perhaps they mistakenly assume that no Protestant can genuinely appreciate a Catholic saint. But what these Christians fail to realize is that Augustine is as historically and theologically important to Protestants as he is to Catholics (agreeing with Westminster Seminary theologian Carl Trueman’s assessment). In other words, Augustine is a universal Christian voice within Western Christendom. Reformed theologians John Owen and Benjamin Warfield shared a respectful attachment to St. Augustine. Interestingly, Augustine is not especially well liked or appreciated in Eastern Christendom among the Eastern Orthodox. For example, Eastern Christendom views him as far too pessimistic concerning original sin.

Yes, It's Possible to Doubt Toward Faith

I love Bobby Conway . I just wanted to say that up front before I tell you about his important new book. I love Bobby’s heart, his “perfect imperfection”, his humility and his transparency. I also love that he’s one of the few full-time pastors in the country who is also an accomplished Christian Case Maker. Bobby gets it. He’s both the pastor of Life Fellowship Church in Huntersville, North Carolina and the face of the One Minute Apologist video series. Bobby has been shepherding a smart, apologetically engaged church for some time now, but he will be quick to tell you that, even as the informed leader of this community, he’s not immune to doubt. Bobby is an excellent example: Even those who are fully aware of the strength of the case for Christianity are sometimes susceptible to questioning.

Why Claiming belief is a Psychological Crutch Backfires

I just had the opportunity to listen to a recent Unbelievable? podcast where Christian biologist Zachary Ardern squared off against Peter Atkins, debating the topic " The Case from Science For & Against God ." Atkins is an avowed atheist and is steeped in philosophical naturalism and scientism . He even said near the end of the interview (about 55:35 and following) that science is really the only way to discover truth and if one isn't leveraging science as the ultimate arbitrar of truth people are "not fulfilling their human capability."1 I guess that means we should shutter all the humanities departments at the colleges as a huge waste of money!

My article is only a brief literary/historical analysis (really, more of an observation), based on a broader argument for “Original Monotheism.’ If you wish to study the argument in a more robust form – (i.e. from, cultural anthropology, mythological studies, & linguistics) then you should check out Winfried Corduan’s book, “In the Beginning God: A Fresh Look at the Case for Original Monotheism.” Corduan’s book is based on the work of 19th C. German scholar, Wilhelm Schmidt from his massive 12 volume, “Der Ursprung der Gottesidee.”

All Navy Sailors Must Undergo Transgender Education by July 2017 | The Stream

This is absolutely unbelievable. This is the exact reason that I left the Navy I knew this was going to happen. Let’s not be coy. The whole reason that this transgender bathroom thing that has taken front stage in society and now has spilled over into the military is not to make society more tolerant of people who are different. It’s designed to reinforce error in transgender people so they can go deeper and deeper into their psychological fantasy world. This is the whole problem transgender people faced from the beginning. If we are taking about a man that thinks he’s a woman…he’s dressed like a woman, talked like a woman and acted like a woman. All his actions tell him he’s a woman, but there’s one problem. He’s been ridiculed for using the women’s restroom or arrested up to this point. But that’s not therapeutic for the transgender person. It doesn’t reinforce in his mind his persistent error. Instead, it creates a contradiction in his mind that says he might not be a woman and that his thinking his subjective.

Donald Trump Calls for Permanently Banning Taxpayer Funding of Abortions |

The first order of business for Clinton and her friends at the abortion company is to force Americans to pay for abortions with their tax dollars by attempting to overturn the Hyde Amendment, which has protected Americans from funding most all abortions since the late 1970s. Upheld by the Supreme Court, the Hyde Amendment is now a target of abortion advocates who have moved from pro-choice to pro-abortion — forcing Americans not only to accept unlimited abortions before birth but to pay for them.

Embarrassing Testimony Confirms the Gospels

I'm sure you could list more pros and cons but this should make my point. When we write an auto-biography or even a biography of someone we love we do our best to leave out embarrassing details. In the Gospel narratives we find detail after detail that is embarrassing. The question we have to ask ourselves is this; What did the author have to gain by telling this detail? Obviously if it is embarrassing he has more to lose than gain. So why would he make it up? This sort of reasoning lends the investigator to infer they are telling the truth. Therefore, let us look at some of the embarrassing details in the Gospel accounts…

Love the One You’re With

The very essence of sacrificial love is accommodating another rather than expecting another to accommodate self. Taking Lewis's insight, then, we should be suspicious of our tendency to admire only those characteristics we approve of in our spouse and to revise those we don't. When remembering a deceased spouse, this is bad enough; you aren't loving her, but an edited memory of her. When serving a living spouse, it is worse; you aren't pursuing her, but what you hope she would be. Far better is to love the original, not your revised edition. After all, you're an original, too.

Christians, Let's Not Give In to Pessimism | The Stream

From my own personal observations, America, in reality versus the hysteria and rantings of the Internet and cable television, is not hovering on collapse.  My knowledge of America is hardly comprehensive. But I don’t entirely live in an insulated bubble. I travel all over the country, usually by car, sometimes by train, avoiding airplanes and airports. I stay at Holiday Inn Express, eat at Cracker Barrel and downtown diners, talk to fellow train passengers and fellow hotel guests at the breakfast bar. Some of my most extensive conversations are with cab drivers but also waitresses, desk clerks, fellow tourists at historic sites, and shop keepers. Almost every day I walk four or five miles in different neighborhoods, observing people, commerce and regional habits.

Doubt: A Splinter In The Mind

Horrifying so, doubt is no stranger to our time. And capturing the zeitgeist of our changing times is quite the project. We live in a multi-textured culture that is replete with innumerable beliefs, opinions, ideas, and life philosophies. Ours is a culture of doubt and longing, faith and questioning, searching and probing. And much of the doubt has been accelerated by fast-paced change. Our culture is living between the tension of what we once were and what we are now becoming. And for many, waiting in the blank space between the definition of what we were and the search to define what we are becoming feels for the moment confusing, and even a bit uncomfortable…

Be Careful Not to Minimize Your Sunday

What are we teaching people? Even in our proper excitement of good things we can unwittingly cast a shadow upon other good things that may be a bit more familiar. Pastors and church members should rightly be excited about surprising developments and demonstrations of grace, but they should never become unimpressed or familiar with the ordinary means of grace that God has ordained for us. God means to feed us with these ordinary means of grace over the course of our lifetime. Let’s be clear: there is a reason for the Christian to get out of bed and come to church every Sunday. It is far better for us to go to church than to watch the NFL pregame shows. It’s always a big day.

Learning to Allow Space for the “Thinking Pause”

I have had many, many conversations where I have listened to someone trying to externally process an idea. When the other person finishes a sentence and there is a few seconds of silence, it is really, really difficult for me to bite my tongue, especially if I already have a lot to say in response. But on almost every occasion that I have waited to find out if it was just a thinking pause and, in fact, it was, the conversation significantly improved over what would have been if I had jumped in prematurely. Oftentimes what comes next is a critical part of his processing but he needed just a little more time to put the pieces together.

I Came to Faith Through Apologetics

When someone says they “came to faith through apologetics” or they “became a Christian through the evidence,” I usually take the time to ask them what they really mean when using these expressions. They commonly describe a journey that illustrates the sovereignty and power of God to call and transform the lives of His children. In each of these cases, God merely used the evidence as the means by which He called those who needed an evidential approach. God can clearly use whatever means He desires, as He reaches out to each of us in the manner He knows will be most effective. We see examples of God using the preaching of evangelists, the words of Scripture or the appearance of a vision. God is God, and He’ll do whatever He pleases. For some of us, He is pleased to use the evidence…

Endless, Bottomless, Boundless Grace and Compassion

The New Testament’s most frequent, and indeed most basic, description of the believer is that he or she is a person “in Christ.” The expression and its variants overwhelmingly dominate the teaching of the Apostles. And one of the clues Scripture gives to help us understand what this means is to express our union with Christ in terms of what Owen calls “conjugal relations,” or, as we would say, “marriage.” Through the ministry of the Spirit and by faith, we become united to Christ, “one” with Christ, in the way a man and a woman “become one flesh” in the marriage bond. This picture, already present in the Old Testament, (Isa. 54:5; 61:10; 62:5; Ezek. 16:1–22; cf. the book of Hosea) comes to fulfillment in the New in the relationship between Christ and His church. Christ rejoiced in this prospect in eternity, and He has made it a reality in time, enduring the humiliation, pain, and anguish of the cross. Christ, in all His saving grace and personal attractiveness, is offered to us in the gospel. The Father brings to His Son the bride He has prepared for Him, and asks both parties if they will have each other—the Savior if He will have sinners to be His; sinners if they will embrace the Lord Jesus as their Savior, Husband, and Friend.
