Watch Justin Bieber Play ‘I Could Sing of Your Love Forever’ on the Purpose Tour

Pop superstar Justin Bieber is currently bringing his Purpose tour to Europe, and had a special surprise for fans in Paris. In the middle of the set, Biebs led an acoustic singalong of the classic worship song “I Could Sing of Your Love Forever.” A few fans were able to catch the performance on their phones. (You can see the videos below.) Biebers is famously a fan of worship music. Last year he named “No Longer Slaves” from Jonathan and Melissa Helser of Bethel Music as one of his favorite songs. At a concert in L.A. late last year, he even brought author and pastor Judah Smith on stage to preach a sermon.

Remember, the Bible Never Mentions A Building Called ‘Church'

This helps me because my son has a medical condition that prevents us from attending church. We have been all in at our church, volunteering in various areas where and when we can...all the time. But, right now we can't. And we're disconnected and out of sight out of mind...through no one's fault. It's just human nature. And we've all struggled with feeling like nothing anymore in the kingdom. But, every morning I pray for that church because I still love it and the people. Every week, very early in the AM when no one is around, I walk around it and pray. So, we're part of it that way, even though we can't meet when the church meets. Hopefully one day, his condition will approve and we can assemble like the Bible tells us. But, for people like us, this article helps, reminding me I am saved, part of the Kingdom, in my day to day living. Thank you.

4 This 6-Year-Old’s Letter to the President About Syrian Refugees Is Incredible

Alex is just six years old. He lives in Scarsdale, New York. Last month, like people around the world, he was moved by the heartbreaking images of Omran Daqneesh, a five-year-old boy in Aleppo, Syria, sitting in an ambulance, in shock as he tried to wipe the blood from his hands.

Has Rome Really Changed Its Tune?

But the Reformation was five hundred years ago! Like most everything else a half-millennium removed from its start, things have changed. Or have they? What issues sparked the Reformation? What were the key protests against the Catholic Church at that time? Do those same conditions exist now, such that the Reformation remains unfinished?

Got Questions? Get Answers at Carowinds’s Christian Music Day

Have you ever been asked a question that you didn’t know how to answer? I’m not talking about comic-book or movie trivia, but specifically questions about Christianity. If you are a Christian in the information age, I can guarantee that all of us, especially if we are serious about sharing our faith, have been challenged with a question about the Christian faith: “What makes you think you’re right and all other religions are wrong?”; “Don’t you just think that what is true for you might not be true for someone else?”; “If God is a ‘loving father,’ then why is there evil?”; “In the era of scientific progression, how can you still believe in God?”, I’m sure you could add your own questions to this constantly growing list of objections.

Family of Keith Scott Releases Video of Shooting

The Charlotte Police department also has footage of the encounter, but has refused to release it, citing an investigation into the shooting. They have said that Scott was shot because he posed an “imminent, deadly threat” to the officers on the scene, and have said he had a gun.

7 Proven Ways to De-stress Your Life

“This often causes stress and people begin to avoid the very object which is life-giving: their relationship with God in Christ. When this happens something that might be helpful is to set time with God having no agenda—no devotional book, no Bible, no verses to memorize, no music, etc. Only you and God with the assignment of listening. Without fail when I give this assignment people begin to share their need to re-organize their life—prioritizing it to become less stressful and more available to pursue the better way of living for God, others and self.”

10 Don't You Dare Laugh

So as the Independent reports, the “habit of the central authorities of blaming the wrong country when a problem’s cause obviously lies elsewhere has led citizens to mock the party.” Meaning that if something goes wrong, a North Korean might say, “It must be America’s fault.”

3 Biblical Reasons for Every Christian to Do Apologetics

It is often wrongly assumed that apologetics is only for smart people, professionals, and those in the university. Not so! Apologetics is important for every Christian without exception. Let’s look at 3 pieces of Scripture that call every Christian to do apologetics.

Jesus Is the Test of True Faith

And the Father who sent me has himself borne witness about me. His voice you have never heard, his form you have never seen, and you do not have his word abiding in you, for you do not believe the one whom he has sent. You search the Scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life; and it is they that bear witness about me, yet you refuse to come to me that you may have life. I do not receive glory from people. But I know that you do not have the love of God within you. I have come in my Father’s name, and you do not receive me. If another comes in his own name, you will receive him. How can you believe, when you receive glory from one another and do not seek the glory that comes from the only God? Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father. There is one who accuses you: Moses, on whom you have set your hope. For if you believed Moses, you would believe me; for he wrote of me. But if you do not believe his writings, how will you believe my words?

Christian Leaders React to This Week's Police Shootings

And as for the Charlotte incident, both sides of the case agree that they have evidence that he was armed with a gun and refused to put it down. They cannot release the footage until a judge orders it to be released because it is evidence. The suspects family does not want the video released because it exposes the real narrative.

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.

Lay Aside the Weight of Thanklessness

In parents like these, we see an image of God’s heart for us. God does not command and exhort us to thank him because he loves to hear the “magic words” or watch us perform a mere divine courtesy. He’s after our spiritual health and prosperity. He does not want us to be spiritually sick and poor. He tells us that thanklessness is a sign of unbelief (Romans 1:21). But thankfulness is a sign of faith, evidence that we really see his grace and feel its effects. That’s what he wants for us.

Divorce Is Heartbreaking. It Shouldn't Be a Spectacle

If you know someone whose relationship is struggling (or who has recently divorced), maybe you need to reach out to them. Just as we can become spectators to a celebrity divorce, we can also sit idly by as our loved ones suffer. Neither should be the case. You may not be able to fix anything, but you can be present. You might even be able to help them to more clearly see God and His best during a time when their vision might be a bit blurry.

Why Apologetics Has a Bad Name - Christian Research Institute

And yet Keller points out something that I have been thinking about for some time, namely that there is a lot of resistance right now among younger evangelical leaders toward apologetics. Why do so many people continue to resist and criticize it? I haven’t seen any solid biblical reasons for rejecting apologetics. After all, Jesus was an apologist (John 5:31–47), Paul clearly used apologetics (Acts 17), Peter encouraged people to be able to defend their views (1 Pet. 3:15), and early church fathers such as Justin Martyr and Ignatius regularly used apologetics. Concern must lie elsewhere. My experience tells me that the problem is not with apologetics per se, but with either apologists—the people who practice apologetics—or with a misunderstanding about the task of apologetics.

27
What are the Toughest Ethical Issue Facing Christians Today? Interview with Dr. Scott Rae.

RAE: This idea of work and vocation is crucially important. The Bible teaches that since our work was ordained before the entrance of sin, it has intrinsic value, which means that it is good in and of itself. Of course it has instrumental value, in that it is useful for accomplishing other things, such as supporting a family, being able to give to the poor, having a platform for the gospel, etc. But work itself is an arena of service to God. Your work is part of your ministry. This means that the work you do is actually part of your service to God. I often ask people in the workplace to tell me about their ministry there--they almost always mention things that they are doing when they are not doing their jobs! The work itself is part of someone's service to Christ and and most prominent place where they can love their neighbor and be spiritually formed.

Are Moral Truths An Illusion?

In my new book, God’s Crime Scene: A Cold-Case Detective Examines the Evidence for A Divinely Created Universe , I describe eight pieces of evidence “in the room” of the natural universe and ask a simple question: Can this evidence be explained by staying “inside the room” or is a better explanation “outside the room” of naturalism? One important piece of evidence I consider in this effort is the existence of objective, transcendent moral truths. Some philosophers and scientists deny the existence of moral truth altogether. As Richard Dawkins has famously asserted: “The universe we observe has precisely the properties we should expect if there is, at bottom, no design, no purpose, no evil, and no good, nothing but blind, pitiless indifference.”

“Much like today, in Old Hollywood, the decisions being made about women’s bodies were made in the interests of men—the powerful heads of motion pictures studios MGM, Paramount Pictures, Warner Bros., and RKO,” write Marcie Bianco and Merryn Johns. And therefore, “from the very infancy of America’s film industry, abortions were necessary body maintenance for women in the spotlight.”

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.

3 Bad Reasons To Reject Christianity

As a former atheist (and really, an antitheist), there were many reasons why I was not a theist (nonetheless a Christian). Usually when the discussion of Christianity would come up I would have a few pocketed arguments I would reach for when pressed on the issue. You know, the usual, “Well I’ve met some bad people who are Christian, therefore I am not a Christian” or even the “All religion is evil!” argument. Or, I would just mock their lack of what I would call “intelligence” for even insinuating that Christianity could possibly be true. However, the more I learned about logic, Christianity, and my own personal biases, I realized that I was not being intellectually honest, open-minded, or rational. Surely, many reject the Christian faith for many reasons, some I have held in the past and some I have not. But, here are three (of many) poor reasons to reject Christianity.

43
Why Argue about Evolution?

Instead of hitting each other over the head about evolution, maybe we could work together to solve some of this planet’s pressing problems (climate change, poverty, war, environmental degradation, wealth inequality, lack of health care and educational resources, prejudice, discrimination and so forth).

44
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.

45
How I Found Healing for My Spiritual Blindness

It didn’t take long to find resources that promised the change I wanted. I read books and attended seminars that promised things like “seven steps to freedom”: freedom from lust, anger, worry, and resentment. I followed these steps. I tried to confess all known failures and surrender self-will, hoping that my devotion might catapult me to some higher plane of spiritual existence, like a gamer seeking to conquer lower levels to unlock the higher ones. I memorized Romans 6, flush with excitement that what Paul described there—the condition of being “dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus” (v. 11)—could be experienced. That’s what I wanted: to know and feel myself to be as unresponsive to temptation as a corpse is to the prick of a needle.

46
Can We Escape the Law of Non-Contradiction?

A while back, I met with a local pastor to talk about apologetics—the defense of the Christian faith. During our friendly discussion, we got on to the subject of the nature of truth, at which time I made a case for the correspondence theory of truth.

Guidance and God’s Plan

I think you’ll find that in some cases the expression refers to God’s general desire that we live holy, upright lives, e.g., “For this is the will of God, your sanctification” (I Thessalonians 4.3); “you have need of endurance, so that you may do the will of God and receive what is promised” (Hebrews 10.36); “he who does the will of God abides for ever” (I John 2.17). In a few cases the expression does indicate an individual plan, e.g., Christ “gave himself for our sins to deliver us from the present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father” (Galatians 1.4); “Paul, called by the will of God to be an apostle of Christ Jesus” (I Corinthians 1.1). In still other cases the expression could be interpreted either way, e.g., “Do not be conformed to this world but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that you may prove what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect” (Romans 12.2); “we do not know how to pray as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with sighs too deep for words.

Honor, Guard, and Cherish

The Christian husband, Peter says, shows this honor because his mind has been flooded with the knowledge of the gospel. God and sin and holiness and the gospel and eternal life and the purpose of the universe — all of these are set before his eyes in the new birth. According to this knowledge, the husband sees his wife not as a woman to manipulate or dominate, but as a treasure to protect, a vessel of the image and glory of God.
