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 […]

5 Earth-Shattering Events Linked to the Bible

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, “...it 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]

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 >>>

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 ...

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 ).

Open Letter to My Daughter About Her Body

The way you treat your body reveals more than your preferences; it reveals whom and what you worship. Pray that the Lord will make you known for your internal, imperishable qualities rather than your external appearance (1 Peter 3:3–4). Physical beauty should certainly not be scorned, as it is a gift to be stewarded from God, but it is not an end in itself. All the beauty we see in human and natural form should constantly remind us that we serve a delightfully creative and powerful God.

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."

Why Does God Allow Bad Things to Happen?

Evolution supposedly progresses by the death of the less fit and the reproduction of the most fit. So, if this the case, why should we help the old, sick, infirm, and disabled? Shouldn’t they be eliminated as less fit? After all, in the world of evolution the strong survive, and tough for you if you’re born weak or less fit. According to an evolutionist’s own worldview, how can death, disease, suffering, cancer, and disabilities really be “bad”? In nature, the weak and ill die off and the strong survive, passing on their good genes to the next generation—this is how evolution supposedly progresses. Death and weakness from disease and mutations is a must for “bad” genes to die out. So by what standard do evolutionists call these things bad? Certainly not by their own standard! To claim a standard for good and bad, they have to borrow from a different worldview—the biblical one—to define what good and bad even are.

Parents: Train Your Young Christians by Finding the Right Mentor | Cold Case Christianity

Like most parents, I’ve done my best to share the truth with my kids and help prepare them to defend what they believe. But there are times when all my talks and efforts to teach and train them have probably been less than successful. I can’t tell you how many times one of my kids has come home and told me about an epiphany they had when a mentor said something my wife or I had been saying for years. They acted like it was the first time they had ever heard it. I typically feel like reminding them I have been saying the same thing, but I usually bite my tongue. I may have been saying it, but for one reason or another, they simply weren’t hearing it. But by helping my kids find the right mentor, I found a way to deliver the same message through a younger, hipper, more culturally aware messenger who shared my kid’s interests and experiences. One way or the other, they got the information they needed. So, look for mentors as you raise your kids in the faith; the right mentor can make all the difference in the world.

Interview: Updated and Revised "Evidence That Demands a Verdict" - Josh.org

This is not the first book we’ve written together, but there is something deeply meaningful about partnering on  this  book.  Evidence that Demands a Verdict   is undoubtedly one of my father’s signature books, along with  More Than A Carpenter . It is what he is most known for, and a remarkable tool God has used to impact millions of lives. I certainly don’t want to take any credit from his work and ministry. Rather, I see this as an opportunity to help continue his story, and the impact of Evidence, into a new generation.

Modern Thinkers Increasingly Confirm a Designed Universe

The title of this post seems misleading. Suggesting a possibility is hardly a confirmation. The fact is that we don’t know the origin of the universe and so the intellectually honest approach is to withhold any confirmations until we have more information. It’s early days – at this point we don’t even know what most of the stuff that makes up the universe actually is, hence the terms “dark matter” and “dark energy”.

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.

5 Things to Know About Going on Mission Trips

If there is anything I learned in my short-term trip it is that God changed my heart so much more than I changed any part of Africa. The fact is, in a week or a month there is really very little you can actually do overseas. You probably don’t speak the language. You don’t understand the culture. You are beyond stressed about not drinking unfiltered water. Too much is going on around you for you to do too much of anything.

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 .

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.

And the question comes to us from Barry in Columbus, Ohio. “Pastor John, I have a history question for you about the Desiring God slogan: ‘God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in him.’ How did the slogan come to be written? 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.

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”?

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.
