Why Didn’t God Heal Nabeel Qureshi? | The Stream

I’m a Husband of a wonderful Christian woman (like Nabeel), Father of a 1 1/2 year old daughter (Like Nabeel), and Minister in the Kingdom (Like Nabeel). I’m also only a few years younger than him. When I first heard the news about his passing I felt a strike of conviction in my conscience, “This could have been me. This may be me.” As I question God’s providence in permitting this suffering, I myself have already been impacted by the conviction of the H.S. in the examination of my own life and sin. I’ve began to reprioritize my loyalties in ministry and want to be intentional out making the most of my life. My mind has been flooded with thoughts of relationships that need restored, personal sins that need challenged, and a renewed perspective on life. I’ve seriously reconsidered the well-being of my family and whether or not I’ve done enough to provide and protect them or whether or not I’m being the man of God they need me to be.

Does the Bible REALLY teach reincarnation? Reincarnation, literally, “rebirth in another body,” has long been considered to be a universal law of life in the Eastern world. Tragically, today in the West, it is now also believed to be backed by the Bible. The words of Jeremiah, John, and Jesus are typically cited as irrefutable […]

The Evidence Continues to Show That The Bible Really Is History - A Clear Lens

Richard Dawkins once said, “The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction. ” From the moment one announces their belief in Christ, one of the first derisive objections one often hears is that the Bible is unreliable:  “It’s a book of myths no more real than fairy tales!”  The dismissal of the Bible in its entirety as a work of “fiction” is, at best, misinformed. While we should be empathetic in a sense, to a skeptical rejection of the more supernatural aspects of the Bible, rejection in its totality based upon the premise that it’s a fictional book declines the reality that archaeology has, and continues, to unearth evidences that support the case for the historical reliability of the Bible.

Six Ways to Inspire Confident, Contagious Faith in Your Kids

As parents and teachers, we want to encourage our kids’ and students’ critical thinking by honoring their questions. For example, you might respond by saying, “Wow, I’m really impressed that you’ve thought of such a deep and important point. Let’s talk about that.” Or if they’re simply expressing doubt about a biblical claim, you might ask them, “What do you think is problematic about that?” If they continue to harbor doubt after you’ve provided them with good answers, give them space. This will show them that you respect their spiritual and intellectual autonomy. You might revisit the conversation from time to time and/or point them toward helpful people, pastors, books, or online resources. When you do talk, try to avoid making them feel as if they’re forced to agree with your conclusions to avoid upsetting you.

Great Reality Inspires Great Writing

So what was the point? Let me get to it by taking you with me on a train of thought emerging over the last three years. What I have been focused on mainly is how to draw out, from the writings of the Bible, the reality that the authors are trying to communicate. And you can see immediately that all we have to do is flip this process of thinking around to discover how to put reality into writing — not just get meaning out.

The World Is Against You: Fighting to Keep Our First Love

This is why true love must fight. “In every romance there must be the twin elements of loving and fighting,” writes Chesterton. “In every romance there must be the three characters: there must be the Princess, who is a thing to be loved; there must be the Dragon, who is a thing to be fought; and there must be St. George, who is a thing that both loves and fights.” The same is true of all our loves. In fact, “To love a thing without wishing to fight for it is not love at all; it is lust” ( Works 15:255 ).

The Magna Carta inspires universal human rights. In the early 1200s, King John signed the Magna Carta in England, which declared for the first time that kings would be subject to the law, and not above it. Although it was not initially successfully, “ was revised in later years and eventually set a standard, based on the Bible, that laid the foundation for the English system of common law. Today, our modern democratic society continues to reap the benefits.” [1]

Part 2 of Warren Cole Smith conversation with Jeff Myers about his new book, "The Secret Battle of ideas About God"

The Cautionary Tale of Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker

Drawing on a wide range of interviews, newspaper reports, and court documents, Wigger expertly documents the larger-than-life transgressions that eventually brought the Bakkers and PTL tumbling down. Where to begin a summary accounting? Perhaps with the sex? Jim Bakker’s December 1980 encounter with a young woman named Jessica Hahn in a Florida hotel room—one which she describes to this day as non-consensual, though she prefers not to call it rape—would prove central to his and PTL’s undoing. But as Wigger shows, it was just the tip of the iceberg. Throughout Bakker’s time at the helm of PTL he had sex with at least six of his male employees. These, too, were exploitative relationships, in which Bakker deployed the power of his position to secure others’ silence. Tammy Faye was not abusive, but may well have had dalliances of her own, including with the musician Gary Paxton. While the two denied any sexual involvement, many in PTL’s inner circles assumed they had an affair.

Remembering Nabeel Qureshi

Former Soviet military officer Stanislav Petrov died in May, though his death has only just been widely reported. Thirty years ago he was on duty when the then Soviet Union's early-warning system detected an incoming nuclear missile strike from the US. The protocol would have been for the Soviet military to fire nuclear missiles at the US in response, but he dismissed them as a false alarm and refused to report the alert to his superiors.

Five Ways Historic Christianity Relates Faith to Reason

I believe deeply that "all truth is God’s truth." That historic affirmation means that when we discover and grasp truth in the world and in life we move closer to its divine Author. As an RTB scholar I have a great passion to help people understand and see the truth and relevance of Christianity's truth-claims. My writings and lectures at RTB focus on showing how the great doctrinal truths of the faith (the Trinity, the Incarnation, the Atonement, creation ex nihilo, salvation by grace, etc.) are uniquely compatible with reason. I work to help myself and others fulfill Peter's words in 2 Peter 3:18: "But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever! Amen."

Religious Life on the High Seas

As a scholar, I don’t have time to read a lot of devotional literature, so every [piece of] literature I read, I read devotionally. I take lessons from everything I learn, and so I really developed a high degree of admiration for these men who persisted in religious practices. They faced enormous peer pressure or cajoling between the decks of the ship and often got reputations as Bible thumpers and things like that. I was really struck by their persistence of faith in an environment that could be very hostile to faith. I admired those who had the gumption to be faithful Christians and yet still have this calling of maritime work.

We Are Not Germs: The Case for Human Dignity

Both Christianity and humanism seek the healing of estranged relationships, and both honor the dignity of the human being. However, their bases for dignity are radically different. The Christian sees the horizontal, interpersonal relation as inseparable from the vertical relationship with God. To remain at the human, horizontal level is to neglect the path toward eternal human significance. To establish human dignity without acknowledging the God of creation, the humanist must act in an arbitrary and irrational fashion. If humans rose by chance from chaos, why should dignity be ascribed to them? Since the advent of the Christian faith, humanism has constantly incorporated Christian values and ethics while ripping the heart out of Christianity’s theological context. Yet that context is the only reason the values and ethics make sense. As a representative human, I resent the moral demands if someone tells me I “ought” to do this or that, without giving me any reason. Humanists have for no reason made dignity and value the “givens” of human experience. To be sure, our experience agrees with their assessment.

Happiness Is Not Hidden in Marriage

No one in Christ ever has to wait for joy. We may have to wait for a husband or a wife, or for a job, or for physical healing or relief, or for reconciliation with family members or friends. We may have to wait for all those things and a thousand more — with no guarantee that any of those things will ever come to us in this life. But the sinless Son of God bled and died to ensure that you and I never have to wait for happiness.

Apologetics: How Do We Know Who Wrote the Gospels?

If these claims are correct, early Christians did not link the four New Testament Gospels to Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John because these individuals actually wrote the Gospels. The Gospels were, according to Bart Ehrman and many others, originally anonymous. According to this reconstruction, early Christians forged apostolic links in the second century in order to make these documents seem more authoritative. Ehrman’s proof for this supposition is the “wide variety” of different titles found among the Gospel manuscripts.

Last Chance U, Wheaton College, The Battle of Antietam, and Rich Mullins

Last Chance U. I became addicted to the NetFlix documentary series “ Last Chance U ,” about a junior college in Mississippi that gives football players who have made career-ending mistakes at major colleges a chance to get their lives and careers back on track. East Mississippi Community College has seen success on the football field, and some success at getting kids back into major college programs. A few former EMCC players have even ended up in the NFL. But I’ve now watched the entire series and I’ve come away feeling sad and frustrated. I think it’s great that some of these kids are getting second chances, or third chances, and clearly some of them are responding and taking advantage of these additional chances. However, the vast majority are not, and you do have to ask the question: At what cost? Cost to the taxpayers, cost to the vast majority of the kids who won’t go on to a four-year school, much less to the NFL, who will also end up without an education because of the time they spent on football rather than study. Now comes news that a player featured in the program, Isaiah Wright, has been charged in connection with a fatal stabbing .

"Tent-Making" Christian Case Makers on Facebook | Cold Case Christianity

The growing interest in Christian Case Making has resulted in an explosion of “tent-making” apologists across the Internet . If you’re beginning to recognize your calling as a Christian Case Maker , there are a number of ways you can begin to make an impact on the culture. You can teach a class at your church, begin a blog or website, write a newsletter, start recording videos on YouTube, or inaugurate a new podcast. If this feels a bit intimidating, there may be an even easier way to get in the game. Most of us are familiar enough with Facebook to navigate and interact with our friends and family. This is also an excellent platform for initiating conversations bout the case for Christianity. Today I want to feature several Christian Case Making groups on Facebook. These groups are interactive, and once members join they have the ability to post and comment on all the content being discussed within the group. All of them were started by “tent-makers”. These faithful Christians come from a variety of occupations and lifestyles (I’ve listed the administrators for each group):

Kindle Deals in Christian Apologetics: Greg's Top Ten Picks of the Week!

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 >>>

Did it come to you alone or were others involved, and how? Did Christian Hedonism flow from the statement or was the statement a distillation after the theology was already developed? What role did the line from the Westminster Confession of Faith play in your own statement? Thank you for your diligence and precision in all your teaching!”

“Oxford so far is standing by the professor.” It hardly matters. Homophobia is forbidden by law in the UK and if only one student decides to file an official complaint at the University they are bound by law to act on it. If they don’t, and the student files a complaint with the police, Oxford will be viewed as an accomplice for not dealing with the situation while knowing the law was violated.

Sorry to Tell You, but Jesus is Not Returning on September 23 | The Stream

Interesting article… but my understanding was that nobody was suggesting that the Second Coming would be September 23rd. I’m wondering where you heard or read that? For the last 3 or 4 years the Christians who have been giving serious consideration to the astronomical alignment on that date as matching a literal reading of Revelation 12:1-6, have argued that Rev. 12 is an illustration of the Church being Raptured, a completely separate event and unrelated to the Second Coming. This is not a new belief either, there are a dozen very famous or well known theologians from the last 150 years who have held the same belief, including H.A. Ironside, William Blackstone and G.H. Pember. The male child in Rev. 12 who is ‘caught up’ to Heaven, is argued to be the Church or Body of Christ, the Greek word being ‘harpazo’, a word which was never once used to describe the Ascension of Yeshua. Personally, I don’t know if the Rapture of the Church is on 9/23 or not. But I also l don’t see fair consideration being given to the Christians who believe there could be something to this, as none of their critics have countered any of the points which have been made to support their position.

Cool Bird Tricks -- The Longitude Problem, High-Flying Ducks, and More | Evolution News

It took mariners centuries to solve the longitude problem. Latitude can be determined relatively easily by the angle of the sun and stars, but figuring out east-west distances on a rotating sphere is much more difficult, requiring precision timing. Sailors who lost sight of land could easily become lost at sea. Novelist Dava Sobel wrote a whole book, Longitude , retelling how 18th-century clockmaker John Harrison took forty years in solving “the greatest scientific problem of his time,” bucking the scientific consensus to build a clock that could work on a ship. Too bad he didn’t learn a trick from the birds.

Germans Are Welcoming Refugees as a Way to Honor Luther’s Legacy

So when Luther wrote his 95 Theses, he was driven by a few simple, democratic ideas—for example, that the grace of God is available to every believer and that everyone is equally free to access that grace through faith. Because they were already assured of God’s love through his unmerited grace, Christians were then to help others in need. According to Luther, “God does ...

Wednesday, September 20, 2017 — The Briefing

A couple of associated insights we should think about here; one is to do with the fact that at least one critic in this program pointed out that it’s not just the question, morally speaking, of whether “Will & Grace” will be edgy enough, but whether the Millennials will find the program interesting. They didn’t watch “Will & Grace” in its original form. The question is whether they’re even going to like it, not just in terms of whether it’s morally edgy enough, but whether or not its production values — even its camera angles and dialogue — fit what Millennials are looking for in terms of television entertainment. The other insight is this: The Millennials really matter. Why? Because they constitute so much of the audience that advertisers are looking for. To put the matter bluntly as Eric Marquez put the matter bluntly, the characters of “Will & Grace” are now going to be middle-aged, which means the Millennials might not find them, in terms of this kind of storyline, all that interesting.

Churches: Stop Trying to Be 'Cool'

Or if we ask how the Church of today is going to address the contemporary individual’s needs and desires, haven’t we already presumed that the burden of proof lies with the Church to prove how it meets the needs, desires and concerns of those outside of the Church? And in that very presumption of the burden, haven’t we given up on our own story and standpoint which claims, in all weakness, that God’s revelation is something that by definition cannot be proved, something that summons humans to prove themselves, something that no cultural movements or ideas or titanic philosophical shifts, no matter how much they bluster, can ever judge or question or pronounce as “irrelevant”?

Facing Our Legacy of Lynching

Once in town, I couldn’t find the Fourth Street Bridge. My husband dropped me at the local history museum and took our kids to play in a park. I awkwardly brought up the lynching with the man at the museum, who knew exactly what I was referring to. He gave me as much information as he had, making copies from local history books. I asked him if the museum would ever consider making an exhibit about Tucker, but the man shook his head sadly. “We just don’t have enough information” he said. “There isn’t even a single photo of Alonzo in existence.”

We can worship and praise the Almighty God who’s able to do all things, and so, as David did, we lift our eyes to him in trust:

Of Old Testament Haircuts and New Testament Head Coverings

The opening pages of the Bible teach that woman was created in God’s image (the crucial dividing line between mankind and beast). But after the fall of man, the history of God’s people gives us much to scrutinize on this question. The exploitation of Hagar in Genesis 16 and the rapes of Dinah in Genesis 34 and an unnamed concubine in Judges 19 offer snapshots of a fallen humanity that regularly views women as expendable sexual objects.
