Six Traits to Look for in a Spouse

And one more thing: Don’t go at this alone. Don’t presume that you, on your own, have a sufficient amount of discernment to evaluate a potential spouse. If you’re in a dating relationship, introduce this person to as many friends of yours as possible, especially your church family. Ask for what they honestly think, and see what yellow flags they raise. That is what humility looks like in a dating relationship — inviting the counsel of others and not believing the lie that you know better than everyone else.

7 How To Handle a Steamroller in Apologetic Discussions

Just yesterday, while our promoting our upcoming event called I Don’t Have Enough Faith To Be An Atheist at a large college campus, I had an an angry, aggressive atheist come up to our table. I would classify this atheist as what is called a ‘steamroller.’  It just so happens on Wintery Knight’s blog, he has a post on this topic . In the post, he says:

How to Survive a Zombie Apocalypse

So whenever I see a non-Christian — even if they are asking the question in a silly way, if they are asking a silly question and giving a thoughtful answer — I always want to pay attention to that and respect that. And having said that, I think that the idea of the zombie apocalypse, even though it is just so silly — ludicrous, of course — I can’t help but think of what Paul says in Ephesians 2:1 about our being dead in trespasses and sins. I can’t help but wonder if there isn’t a real insight in those movies. There was a movie before the 1953 George Romero classic, but no one really remembers it. But it has been about 50 years or so. And the genre is still going strong.

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…

5 Ways to Minister to Women in Crisis

We often have a quick-fix mentality in our desire to see a sister come out of crisis. We think that if we combine the right verses with the right prayers and the right things to do, then all her problems will go away. But we’re not going to solve our friend’s marital problems in one conversation. We need to be available to our sisters for the long haul, even as we know all suffering, sin, and death are momentary. Whether it’s a day, a few weeks, or 50 years, in light of the eternal weight of glory that awaits us it is still momentary.

Renewing Your Mind | Calvinism and the Christian Life | September 18, 2015

While many Christians throughout the world may be familiar with some of Calvin’s doctrines, most are unfamiliar with the man who was so devoted to prayer and the ministry of God’s Word (Acts 6:4). Given all that the Lord accomplished in him and through him, his legacy to us is one of biblical, doctrinal, and ecclesiastical integrity. As such, we would do well to heed the words of Calvin’s friend Theodore Beza, who wrote, “Since it has pleased God that Calvin should continue to speak to us through his writings, which are so scholarly and full of godliness, it is up to future generations to go on listening to him until the end of the world, so that they might see our God as he truly is and live and reign with him for all eternity.”

Tough Questions Christians Face: 2008 West Coast Conference

When this conference was announced, I was surprised as it was going to be held less than 5 miles from my home. I couldn't pass up an opportunity like this and I am glad I didn't. It dealt with many difficult questions that all of us ask at one time or another. The speakers made the conference a truly edifying experience based on their years of scriptural study and exegetical prowess. This set belongs in everyone's library, especially those who have questions.

Vatican Disputes White House Guest List for Papal Visit

On the eve of Pope Francis’s arrival in the U.S., the Vatican has taken offense at the Obama administration’s decision to invite to the pope’s welcome ceremony transgender activists, the first openly gay Episcopal bishop and an activist nun who leads a group criticized by the Vatican for its silence on abortion and euthanasia.

What God Values More than Your Motives

Even more importantly, when you do attempt to share the gospel, what gospel gets shared? Which aspects of the message are you most tempted to edit, to mute, perhaps even to deny? Maybe it’s the severity of sin, or the reality of judgment, or the necessity of repentance. It’s exceedingly tempting in our culture today to emphasize God’s mercy but not his justice, his love but not his wrath, his kingdom but not his cross. Yet such lopsided messages, however loving they may feel, are powerless to save. As the Puritan Thomas Watson once said, “Till sin be bitter, grace will not be sweet.”

What I Learned About God From Psych Ward Patients

Given that you were working with a vulnerable population, knowing the people and not just their issues as you say, I am very disappointed by the way you describe these people. By calling them "a drunk" "klepto" "psychotic sex feind"? This is not delicate language, and you are dealing with real people who have very real and delicate problems. You talk about how this experience was humbling for you, but your language is dehumanizing to the people involved, and it sounds like you are using them to tell a cool story rather than caring about who they are as people.

6 Reasons You Seriously Need to Slow Down

Report: A Christian Is Martyred Every 5 Minutes

According to a report from the group Christian Freedom International , every five minutes, a Christian is martyred for their faith somewhere in the world. The group is preparing for the International Day of Prayer on Nov. 8, and has released several infographs (like the one above) that show just how large the problem of Christian persecution has become: More Christians have been killed for their faith in the 20th and 21st centuries than the previous 19 combined. According to their report , right now, more than 200 million Christians face persecution. The group Open Doors has released this global map , showing what countries are the worst offenders of religious persecution.

House passes Planned Parenthood defunding and anti-abortion bills, but will they help avert a shutdown?

On the House side, GOP leaders have sought to tamp down demands to link Planned Parenthood funding to the spending deadline. They have made both political and practical arguments: In a Thursday morning meeting at Republican National Committee headquarters, party leaders presented polling numbers showing Republicans would be blamed for a shutdown in key battleground districts. And they told members that due to the vagaries of federal appropriations and funding cycles, the kind of short-term funding bill that is likely to pass ahead of the Sept. 30 deadline would do little to affect Planned Parenthood.

Trapped Inside My Own Body for 12 Years

I grew up in South Africa, a normal, healthy child, until I came home from school one day in 1988, complaining of a sore throat. I was 12 years old. From that day on, my parents fought for a diagnosis from doctors who couldn’t explain what was happening to me. First I stopped eating. Then I stopped speaking. I lost all sense of time. The bonsai trees I had once tended grew dense as I lost mobility in my limbs. My body weakened as I stopped using it.

Dallas 2015 | Healthy Leaders

It is clear from both 1 Timothy 3 and Titus 1 that there is nothing extraordinary about leaders among God’s people. The requirements for elders (a.k.a bishops or pastors) is that they live exemplary lives. They lead by showing others what it means to be a disciple in the everyday. The one distinguishing mark of a pastor is his ability to teach, i.e. explain how the gospel shapes and defines our lives as the people of God. Therefore, Healthy Leaders are first and foremost examples to the flock of what it means to be a sheep!

The Only True Freedom

If you don’t have the desire to do a thing, you are not fully free to do it. Oh, you may muster the willpower to do what you don’t want to do, but nobody calls that full freedom. It’s not the way we want to live. There is a constraint and pressure on us that we don’t want.

Chandler, Horton, Keller on How to Disagree

The terms of theological have changed rapidly and dramatically with the spread of the internet. So how ought Christians to disagree with one another and with other theological opponents? In this video: Matt Chandler, Michael Horton, Tim Keller Permalink:

Should Denominations Apologize for Racial Acts They Didn’t Commit?

“I’ve heard folks say that because that was not their sin, they didn’t want to deal with it,” he said. “But we believe in covenant theology. There are examples in the Old Testament that we confess the sins of our fathers.”

When Forgiveness Isn’t Enough

@steve, i love that you addressed the questions that i had in your comment. i think we are all too often more interested in protecting ourselves than in practicing what we say we believe. i also think there are those out there who are more interested in themselves and in damaging people around them than reconciling. it takes a lot of discernment and wisdom to decide which is going on in each specific situation. when the person who is offending consistently chooses pride and continues to lash out hurts, it might be time to... be open yourself to reconciliation... if and when they are repentant.

March for Life Exempt From Birth Control Mandate

“March for Life has been excised from the fold because it is not ‘religious.’ This is nothing short of regulatory favoritism,” Judge Leon wrote. “What HHS claims to be protecting is religious beliefs, when it actually is protecting a moral philosophy about the sanctity of human life.” Leon said the federal regulations for coverage of contraception violated the equal protection clause of the Constitution, the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, and the Administrative Procedure Act.

3 Things That Happen When We Face Our Fears

As we resist ignoring our anxieties and begin to hand them over to God, our instincts change. We choose to fight back with hope-infused joy. The hope that the Creator of it all has it all—even our fears—in His mighty hands leads us straight to the foot of the cross, where anxious thoughts lose their power and where inexplicable joy and peace is found.

Your Child Is Your Neighbor

On the surface, this statement appears true. When we think of “parenting passages” we typically think of those that explicitly mention parents, children, authority, and instruction: Deuteronomy 6, the fifth commandment in Exodus 20, spare the rod and spoil the child, train up a child in the way he should go, children obey your parents in the Lord, and a smattering of other verses. We may even throw in the example of the Prodigal Son or the parenting woes of the patriarchs for good measure. But other than these, few passages mention the parent-child relationship specifically, leading many to conclude that, for the most part, God must leave us to figure out this parenting thing on our own. An understandable conclusion.

Where do you start?

Pre-conference 2015

Our culture is flooded with transgender confusion. The Christian Gospel speaks into this confusion with revolutionary clarity. God sovereignly assigns a gender to people created in his image. The powerful grace of Jesus Christ redeems and restores to sanity our thinking corrupted by sin. The church must speak with biblical conviction into this chaos with the clarity and love of Christ.
