Rom-Coms Are Perverting How We Think About Love

And when I think about it that way, expecting that type of relationship really is a form of objectification. Pornography reduces women to their sexuality, diminishing their multi-dimensional being. In rom-coms, men are treated as a means to an end—a woman’s happily ever after. Women spend a lot of time dreaming about our wedding day—it typically starts when we’re little girls.

Five Questions to Ask Before You Start Dating

If you watch two people date in a movie, it usually goes like this: The couple meets and there are intense and immediate sparks of attraction. So they go out together, just the two of them, to get to know each other. Then they keep going out together alone — an intense and isolated romance — until finally, at a big, dramatic moment in the relationship, they introduce one another to their parents. We’re told this is normal. We meet, we date, and then we involve our community.

Make Disciples

A sea of seven billion people, and no islands. We may feel like we live on an island most days, like our decisions mainly affect us and only us. But the reality is that others will notice what we do and how we do it, what we say and how say it. What they notice will either inspire them to follow Jesus, or comfort their animosity or disinterest. We disciple in everything we do, so we should be intentional in everything we do to model joy in Jesus — and as often as we can, to teach them how to find that joy for themselves.

Errors in the Bible?

10 The Electoral College, Voting Down-Ballot, Honoring the Flag, and Remembering Rich Mullins

The Electoral College and the Depravity of Man. If you think we’re going to elect a president on November 8, you’re wrong. In fact, the Electoral College will meet to elect the president about three months from today and a couple of weeks after the general election. Over the years, especially in the late 20 th century, we’ve debated whether to keep the Electoral College. Personally, I’m in favor of it. It is a safeguard our nation’s founders put in place to protect us from mob rule on the one hand, and the concentration of power in the hands of the elite on the other. It is not an exaggeration to say that the separation of power we see codified in our Constitution is a response to a theological understanding: that man, though made in God’s image (with rights endowed by our Creator) is nonetheless broken and therefore wicked because of the Fall. That’s why we have three branches of government, and why we have an Electoral College. For a thoughtful defense of the Electoral College, listen to my interview with Trent England of the organization Save Our States. You’ll be better equipped to talk about the Electoral College next time someone asks why we have one.

Renewing Your Mind | The Anthem of the Angels | Sep 21, 2016

Every country has its own anthem; but is there an anthem just for God? Is there a royal anthem for the King of Kings? What do the citizens of heaven sing in unity, and how can we sing in concert with them? In this message, Dr. Sproul teaches us a timeless song found in our Bible. The words are short and simple, but nothing could be more profound.

13 The Dictatorship of Relativism

Not long after I graduated from Yale, Allan Bloom wrote his famous book, “The Closing of the American Mind: How Higher Education Has Failed Democracy and Impoverished the Souls of Today’s Students.” (There’s a subtitle for you!). Bloom wrote that “almost every student entering the university believes, or says he believes, that truth is relative. If this belief is put to the test . . . they will be uncomprehending. That anyone should regard the proposition as not self-evident astonishes them, as though he were calling into question 2 + 2 = 4.”

A Life of Repentance – R.C. Sproul Jr.

Our theme, our approach for this year’s conference was a little bit odd. We’re looking at the dawn of the Reformation, and we’re doing so because we’re fast approaching the 500th anniversary of the occasion of Luther nailing his 95 theses on the church door in Wittenberg. But that doesn’t happen till next year, so it’s a little bit odd to be stopping to celebrate the 499th anniversary of the start of the Reformation. So our approach was to say “What was going on in the leadup?” My last talk, I looked specifically at what was going on in the life of Luther, and it was an opportunity to speak on a theme that was near and dear to my heart. I have, I confess, if you ever come to a Ligonier conference, if you want to know what’s going through my mind while I’m up there talking it’s not “All those people are looking at me!” I’m actually quite comfortable. I don’t like when one person looks at me, but I’m quite comfortable with a big crowd. What I’m thinking about is what I’m trying to do. What I’m trying to do is to bless and help the audience with respect to their sanctification.

Why the church can rescue us from our smartphones

Perhaps this is one reason why — one after the other — young pastors in the fastest-growing segments of evangelical Christianity seem to be falling apart at midlife. Pastors and leaders who soared through their twenties and thirties are hitting their forties, and spiraling often into burnout, depression and even the self-sabotage of addiction. Some of this, of course, is the sort of human weakness that is always with us. But some of it, no doubt, is the sort of entrepreneurial vision of Christian ministry that causes leaders to “justify” their existence by ceaseless activity.

18 It's Theology, Silly

Sean described recent encounters with young people who are questioning their faith. In each case, bad theology was at the root of their unbelief: a faulty view that man is basically good and therefore undeserving of punishment, a misunderstanding of the nature of God, Who is eternal and uncreated, or the misguided belief that the Bible teaches sex is bad, when it most certainly does not.

A Bonhoeffer Moment: Q&A with Eric Metaxas

A: That is precisely why I wrote this book, because the most important thing to do right now is to educate ourselves about what America is and what the founders gave us. In the book I talk about all of those things and about some of the stories of our history, stories about the heroes who sacrificed their lives and much else, so that we could have what we have. These things have not been taught in schools for the last 40 years, so we desperately need to revisit them, and that’s precisely why I put all of them in this book, so that you could just say to someone, “Here, read this and then let’s discuss it.” I want to start a national conversation on these things. We desperately need that right now.

It's Time to Rethink How We Fight Poverty

Our experience of downward mobility allows us to relate to people in poverty in other parts of the world, and exposes the sometimes slightly condescending attitude Westerners unwittingly have toward the Global South. Similarly, some of our baby-boomer elders tell us that we are poor because we’re lazy, spending too much time on Facebook and not working enough. Those of us who live it know that’s not true, so some of their assumptions about helpless people living in poverty don’t hold up for us either.

Governor Abbott Statement On Texas’ Intention To Withdraw From Refugee Resettlement Program

The State of Texas today sent a letter to the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) giving official notice of its intention to withdraw from the federal refugee resettlement program should ORR not unconditionally approve Texas’ state plan by September 30th. Today’s letter comes after ORR’s unwillingness to approve Texas’ updated state refugee plan, which would require national security officials to ensure that refugees do not pose a security threat to Texas. As required by ORR, Texas’ withdrawal from the refugee resettlement program will be effective 120 days after the September 30th deadline, on January 31st, 2017.

Are Moral Truths Human-Specific Biological Facts? - Cross Examined - Christian Apologetic Ministry | Frank Turek | Christian Apologetics | Christian Apologetics Speakers

Some of the more secularly minded in my class tried to attribute those common moral truths to simple biology and the DNA/evolutionary drive to protect the species, but as this article points out, that argument doesn’t hold water unless you assume some moral truths as “a priori” knowledge inherent in the human condition itself. It also falls apart when compared with other instances in nature. If the moral truth of compassion for the less fortunate were a simple product of DNA coding, we would expect to see the same pattern of behavior in other successful mammalian species, and notably we do not. In fact, in many cases, we are shocked by the abject apparent cruelty of the natural world. When we see a male lion seize control of a pride, for example, and that male lion immediately begins to kill the cubs of the former pride leader, we are appalled. At its basest level, this is an example of nature ensuring that the best genetic material is passed on to the next generation. For whatever reason, the previous male is no longer the strongest, most well-fit to lead the pride, and therefore from a genetic standpoint it can be assumed that the former alpha’s most recent offspring will suffer as a result.

Weighing Worldviews: Naturalism

In the beginning was nothing. Or a multiverse. Or something we haven’t discovered yet. All that is certain is that it wasn’t God or gods or any kind of supernatural force since in naturalism, the natural is all there is (hence, natural ism). And then something happened which brought everything into existence – space, time, matter, and energy. Eventually stars and planets formed and then life inexplicably arose on Earth (and possibly elsewhere in the universe). Life continued forming and evolving until we have every kind of living creature in existence today. Where is all of this heading? No one knows. Maybe the universe will keep expanding until it runs out of energy and becomes cold and lifeless. Or it will all crunch back into a singularity. Only time will tell.

How Long Is a Day?

This is wrong. Really wrong. This is possibly the worst thing I have ever read relating to the bible. I do not know what bible this person read, or how they read it, but they did it wrong. To start, the Fall happened eons before the creation of earth. Second, who made this guy the end all be all of how to interpret the bible? Third (this is very important), when the bible was originally written, it didn’t have the word day in it. Any one who paid attention in seminary knows that the original Greek word meant “period of time,” which could be one nano second, or a billion years. Those of us who choose to define “period of time” as a billion years would actually seem more correct, because if the bible says Earth was made in six “periods of time,” and science tells us that the earth was created in 6 billion years, then one could conclude that because of the infinity of God, a billion years to him would seem like a day to us.

Did You Know? Jesus Features in Most Religions

You’ve probably heard the phrase: “All religions are basically the same”. This can’t logically be true. All religions say completely different things about the nature of truth, if there is a God, how to access God, what – if anything- is wrong with humanity, how to rectify what is wrong with humanity, what happens after you die, etc, etc.

A Cold-Case Detective Writes an Apologetics Book for Kids

WALLACE: There are many great resources on the market, so we wanted to do something different and complimentary. Cold-Case Christianity for Kids (CCC4K) has been written as an interactive experience. CCC4K has an accompanying interactive web Academy, designed to help readers learn good detective skills. Kids will join the three young characters in the book as they begin a Cadet Academy. Readers will be trained by Detective Alan Jeffries and if they watch the videos for each chapter, download and complete the fill-in sheets and activities, they’ll be able to earn an Academy Certificate. This Academy experience was inspired by my own involvement in the Police Explorer Academy as a teenager. Readers of CCC4K will become trained detectives as they investigate the evidence for Jesus.

Tim Keller’s Invitation to the Skeptical

Keller excels in identifying exactly why people choose not to engage with Christian belief. You can usually tell whether apologist have learned apologetics from other Christians, or whether they have mainly learned it through lots of interactions with ordinary secular people; Keller is clearly the latter. So, in his chapter, “A Meaning that Suffering Can’t Take from You,” he recognizes that for many, the question of life’s “meaning”—often used as a jumping-off point in Christian evangelism—isn’t even a question. Through a mixture of modernist progress, postmodern critique, irony, pragmatism, and even capitalism, the notion of there being a “meaning” to life in the first place has been subverted. Keller starts there. Instead of assuming Christianity has the answer to a burning secular question, Keller talks to those for whom there’s no burning question. When he then sketches a Christian response, arguing that the difference between religious and secular approaches isn’t between meaning and meaninglessness, but between discovered meaning and created meaning, it’s far more compelling.

Atheists are not intellectual.

When people profess atheism, never be intimidated by the thought that they are somehow intellectual. They are not. The Bible says that such a person is a fool (see Psa. 14:1; Rom. 1:22). So, make sure that you move from the intellect (the place of argument; see Rom. 8:7) to the conscience (the place of the knowledge of right and wrong; see Rom. 1:14). This is what Jesus and Paul did, as well as others (see Mark 10:17–22; Rom. 2:19–24).

A Privatized Faith Leads to a Secularized Culture: Greg Forster on Faith and Work | Intersect

“Another result is a thoroughly secularized culture. If you want to know how it is that a culture gets secularized, this is one of the main ways it happens. Because Christians have a tendency now to disconnect their faith from the activities that connect them to their neighbors and connect them to the structures of their culture. If we privatize our faith and keep it as a leisure time activity that we participate in as part of our private life, it’s not connected to the structures of public life. It’s not connected to the culture. This is how the public square becomes secularized.

47 Does quitting social media make you happier? Yes, say young people doing it

I’ve been free from the chains of social media for about six months now, which doesn’t seem like a lot of time, but it feels like it now that my time isn’t being sapped by these apps. It sounds so silly, but since leaving I feel like my own person. Before, Facebook and Twitter became almost like extra arms attached to me that I constantly had to be aware of. I used to check for updates countless times every day. Now, I don’t have to be reliant and dependent on it any more – it’s like a breath of fresh air. I don’t plan on going back, except for maybe WhatsApp if I need to talk to people when I’m abroad.
