Christianity is a deep, profound transformation of what we love. When Christ is our supreme Treasure, we belong with him.

Woody Harrelson Read From the Bible at a Killers Concert

A recent Killers performance in London opened with a dramatic moment this week: Actor Woody Harrelson stood at a microphone and read Matthew 9:10-12.As Uproxx notes, Harrelson is famously an atheist, who once called the Bible “just a document to control people.” Killers frontman Brandon Flowers is a devout Mormon.The Scripture reading opened for the song “The Calling” and is off their upcoming album Wonderful, Wonderful. As you might expect, it too contains a lot of religious references. You can see a fan-shot video of the performance above.

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.

Case-Making 101: Is the Bible written by eyewitnesses of the events?

Eyewitness Accounts: Many people think the Bible is just like other “holy books” telling mythological stories or giving philosophical advice. Not true! Upon close examination one will find that the Bible with its 66 different books is written by at least 40 authors who were either eyewitnesses of the accounts or who record eyewitness testimony. These authors came and went over a period of about 1500 years yet they are so cohesive in their subject matter and theme to the point that the 66 books flow as one. In addition the Bible’s content and preservation is unmatched in ancient literature.

Perspective | Why this Muslim-turned-Christian speaker resonated with so many before his death at 34

That was Nabeel Qureshi. He hated sitting still. He was a man with a mission, ready to run. Sadly, for us, he died Saturday at a young age of 34 after a year of battling stomach cancer. Nabeel, who was raised in a Muslim-American family and converted to Christianity after a fellow college student sparked his interest in Christianity, worked with me in Christian apologetics.

Rapid Response: 'The Gospels Are Unreliable'

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 made the following claim: “Even if the events recorded in the Gospels came from eyewitness accounts, why should we trust what eyewitnesses tell us? Even modern-day witnesses are notoriously unreliable and are often wrong about what they claim to have seen. Why should we trust ancient eyewitness accounts?” How would you respond to such an objection? Here is a conversational example of how I recently replied:

Fail Not to Obtain the Grace of God

And notice the connection between verse 1 and verse 13. Verse one calls us to “run with endurance the race that is set before us,” and verse 13 says, “Make straight paths for your feet.” In other words the aim of all this teaching about God’s discipline in our suffering is so that we will not give up the race — that we not fall exhausted in discouragement or take a detour into some easier path.

A.P.T.A.T.: A Strategy for Daily Bible Reading

How do we begin reading the Bible supernaturally? God is certainly not under our power to control or manipulate him into helping us. Nevertheless, by his own grace, God loves to help his children understand his word. So how are we to set out Bible reading so that we read and think in dependence on God’s supernatural help at every moment?

Outrage: 'Friday Night Lights' Is Leaving Netflix

The reason for the departure? Netflix received streaming licenses for most of its prized shows back when it was still in its nascent years in the early 2010s, when the value of streaming video was still difficult to determine. Netflix gambled big, and that gamble paid off, but the contracts for many of the shows are up this year and, what’s more, the people who own the shows are much more aware of their value. Word is, a lot of the shows will be headed over to Hulu, just like Julie Taylor eventually decided to join Matt in Chicago, despite the protestations of her parents.

What Does It Mean That God Will 'Restore Everything'?

I received two letters this week. One from a young mother who lost her first child in utero, during the eighth month of her pregnancy. The loss broke this couple’s hearts and shattered their faith. The second letter came two days later, from a woman whose husband had taken his life. She found him in the living room. Though a year had gone by, she wrote to say she is having a hard time moving on.

Kindle Deals in Christian Apologetics: This Week's Top Ten Best-Sellers (Plus One FREE)!

From Muhammad's first "revelation" from Allah to his deathbed (from which he called down curses upon Jews and Christians), it's all here-told with extensive documentation from the sources that Muslims themselves consider most reliable about Muhammad. Spencer details Muhammad's development from a preacher of hellfire and damnation into a political and military leader who expanded his rule by force of arms, promising his warriors luridly physical delights in Paradise if they were killed in his cause. He explains how the Qur'an's teaching on warfare against unbelievers developed-with constant war to establish the hegemony of Islamic law as the last stage. Spencer also gives the truth about Muhammad's convenient "revelations" justifying his own licentiousness; his joy in the brutal murders of his enemies; and above all, his clear marching orders to his followers to convert non-Muslims to Islam-or force them to live as inferiors under Islamic rule.  OREDER YOUR COPY NOW >>>

Get Disciplined About Discipleship

The goal of the Church is not to create attenders, tithers or ministry participants. It is not even to create program volunteers, although that may overlap with the true goal. The great commission commands us to make disciples. Every church would accept this in principle. But what is the plan to make disciples? I think many churches just hope that it will happen. The pastor may teach on the importance of mentoring and then hope someone will get it and decide to mentor a new Christian. Many churches likely are seeking some discipleship goals through small groups. That can be a means but attending a small group does not equate discipleship. Most small groups (from my experience) are primarily about fellowship and support. Those are good things but they are not the same as discipleship…

15
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.

16
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.

17
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.

Apologetics 101: Having an Argument for the Existence of God

Contrary to what Melissa Cain Travis implies above, you don’t need to respond to Coworker Joe by a full-on presentation of the Kalam Cosmological Argument. Instead, it is perfectly acceptable to humbly ask questions. For example, you could ask Coworker Joe, “So why do you think the Bible has changed over time?” That takes the pressure off you to defend Christianity, and puts the pressure on him to defend his claims. Or you could say, “I’m going to look into that. Let me get back to you tomorrow.” And then you could go home search Google—a wonderful resource—to learn more. You would quickly find that the Bible has remained pretty much the same over the past 2000 years, and that it is preserved in its original languages Greek, Hebrew, and Aramaic. Then, the next day, you could tell Joe what you learned and ask him what he thinks.

Apologist Ravi Zacharias Remembers His Young Protégé, Nabeel Qureshi

I invited him to join our team at Ravi Zacharias International Ministries (RZIM) four and a half years ago. He placed one condition, and I placed one condition. His condition was that after he joined, he travel with me for one year, to observe and learn. I asked that after the year, he go to Oxford and do his doctorate to be better prepared to answer the toughest questions a Christian apologist faces and to do it with gentleness, respect, and learning. He agreed.

Whites Only? A Birmingham Letter for Wittenburg’s Door

That said, black souls are being lost without ever hearing the biblical gospel. Many from my childhood have never been confronted with the person and work of Jesus Christ. Even if they grew up in Grandma’s church, they most likely heard some form of “the prosperity gospel” — which is no gospel at all. I have talked with several black men who, since coming to faith, marvel in horror at how devoid of the gospel their neighborhoods are. Black communities starve theologically, perishing down the street from a healthy and fruitful gathering of saints.

6 Surprises Every Premarital Counselor Should Cover

Second, we must say, “I will pay the debt for this sin instead.” Debt doesn’t just mysteriously evaporate. If I loan you $10 and you refuse to pay, the money doesn’t magically appear back in my wallet. Someone has to eat it. This often trips up reconciliation. We want to forgive, but we assume it shouldn’t cost us. We feel that sheer willingness to not retaliate is sufficient. We instinctively react to the injustice of absorbing a debt: “You did it! Now I pick up the tab?” To treat our spouse as their sin deserves (with anger, withdrawal, or emotional punishment) seems more fair and equitable. But when you do this, you’ve forgotten just how much you’ve already been forgiven. You’ve forgotten the debt Christ paid for you. You were forgiven a great debt. Marriage often means doing the same.

Deep Loss, Heavy Hearts: The Passing of Nabeel Qureshi | RZIM

Our loss is deep and our hearts heavy. Yes, we dreaded this moment, but it is here. Our Lord understands. Even He wept over Lazarus, knowing all along that He would raise him. The pain of death is real. Even short farewells are painful. I have a flood of memories. I have posted an obituary on certain publications, at their request. It is amazing that a life so brief had an impact so big. That is rare and is a tribute to an amazing man. I will miss his voice on the phone saying, “Hello, uncle.” I will miss his memorable smile. Most importantly, I will miss watching him preach with an anointing that was rare. I will write more later. For now, I just wanted to say how saddened we are by the loss of a fellow apologist whose powerful messages changed tens of thousands that heard him.

So, may I suggest that even if you listen to this right now and you say, “I have tried that and it doesn’t work” or, “I don’t even know what you are talking about,” may I urge you, may I plead with you? You may be such a novice at this, like a little child who knows nothing about sex. You choose an analogy. You may be such a novice at this that you need practice. Please, don’t give up. Don’t say that you are beyond the capacity to feel the beauty of the knowledge of God in the Bible and the knowledge of his ways. This text is God’s word to you. Apply your heart.

Tim Kaine: We Need All Parts of the Body to Fix Health Care

Who are “the least of these” that Jesus spoke of? Since 1999, there has been an annual clinic at the Wise County, Virginia, fairgrounds, offering free medical care to uninsured people in the heart of Appalachia. I’ve volunteered at this clinic many times, and the dire need for medical care in my state and the generosity of people willing to help never cease to move me. The patients I met this year were no exception: a mother of four young kids who couldn’t remember the last time she had seen a doctor; a nurse who had lost her job to an opioid addiction sparked by a prescription for arthritis; a man who needed dental, medical, and vision services but had to pick only two because he was too sick to wait in the July sun for all three. The clinic provides life-changing care to thousands in need, but the most compassionate and wealthiest nation in the world should have a health care system that doesn’t force the least among us to wait in a fairground lot for days to see an affordable doctor.

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).

The most important thing Christian parents need to focus on with their children

What I learned about myself while thinking deeply about the new member questions for the excellent PCA church is that I had pretty much forgotten the excitement of how God saved me by grace when I was little. I was saved in a non-Christian home where,  thanks to my hands-off “parents”, I was on a very dark path to failure. When I look at my older brother now, I can clearly see where I would have ended up. It is a disastrous place to be. I get excited about God as initiator and architect of salvation (not without my free will to trust). When God architects a divine appointment for me to use my prepared abilities in his defense or in mentoring little ones, I praise God as author of salvation. But I forget that Christ is the one who allows me to be clean enough to participate in this plan.

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...

What is the Best Evidence for Intelligent Design? Interview with Brian Johnson

BRIAN JOHNSON: I think that accolade needs to go to the discovery of the DNA double helix in 1953 by Crick and Watson. Once this was discovered it blew open the doors to a whole new world of biology. From that we have been able to begin to piece together an entirely new understanding of what it takes to make our bodies function. This has led to major advancements in medicine as well as many other disciplines. The discovery of DNA has also enabled us to build an incredibly strong case for Intelligent Design…

I was an Atheist Until I Read 'The Lord of the Rings'

I grew up in a loving, comfortable atheist household of professional scientists. My dad was a lapsed Catholic, and my mom was a lapsed Lutheran. From the time that I could think rationally on the subject, I did not believe in God. God was an imaginary being for which there was no proof. At best, God was a fantasy for half-witted people to compensate their ignorance and make themselves feel better about their own mortality. At worst, God was a perverse delusion responsible for most of the atrocities committed by the human race.

The Kalam Cosmological Argument, Volume 1

Did the universe begin to exist? If so, did it have a cause? Or could it have come into existence uncaused, from nothing? These questions are taken up by the medieval-though recently-revived- kalam cosmological argument, which has arguably been the most discussed philosophical argument for God's existence in recent decades. The kalam 's line of reasoning maintains that the series of past events cannot be infinite but rather is finite. Since the universe could not have come into being uncaused, there must be a transcendent cause of the universe's beginning, a conclusion supportive of theism. This anthology on the philosophical arguments for the finitude of the past asks: Is an infinite series of past events metaphysically possible? Should actual infinites be restricted to theoretical mathematics, or can an actual infinite exist in the concrete world? These essays by kalam proponents and detractors engage in lively debate about the nature of infinity and its conundrums; about frequently-used kalam argument paradoxes of Tristram Shandy, the Grim Reaper, and Hilbert's Hotel; and about the infinity of the future.

Tools for Inquiry: Logic and Observation

I was in a friendly mini-debate at a California college when the evolutionist interrupted me: “But creation can’t be scientific. Science deals only with things you can see and touch. Take energy, for example . . . .” Then he stopped. “Whoops! Made a mistake, didn’t I?” I hastened to agree. He, his students, and I all knew that there are forms of energy, like gravity, that you can’t see or touch or put in a bottle. Yet you know “gravity” is there (whatever it is!) because you can see the effects it has on matter. Similarly, God is a Spirit and can’t be seen—but you can see His effects on matter. Even the Bible tells us that “the invisible things of God are clearly seen in all the things that have been made” ( Rom. 1:20 ).
