Richard Dawkins Admits that Nothing Can Persuade Him God Exists

Of course, don’t make the mistake of thinking that if only you could find a big enough Gap, the New Atheist would have to embrace that as evidence for God. After all, that’s not how it would work with Richard Dawkins, the most famous atheist alive. Dawkins made this clear some time ago in an interview with atheist Peter Boghossian. You can see the demonstration for yourself in the video below. It starts at 12:30 and goes to 15:30. I’ll post a transcript below the fold.

Watch the video below, and wonder why he’d ever use Auto-Tune in the first place.

American Student Tells Jimmy Fallon How He Stopped a Terrorist Attack on a French Train

The Tonight Show recently hosted American student Anthony Sandler, one of three Americans who helped stop a suspected terrorist attack on a train in France. Sandler was traveling with two of his friends—who are both members of the American military—when a gunman began opening fire. Not only were they able to physically overtake the terrorist, who was also armed with a box cutter, the trio administered lifesaving medical assistance to one of the shooting victims.

New Planned Parenthood Video Shows Vendor Discussing Graphic Abortion Details

Activist group The Center for Medical Progress has released another one of their secretly filmed videos showing vendors for Planned Parenthood discussing the business relationship between the abortion provider and fetal tissue research groups. The latest video also shows the “Procurement Manager” at a group called Advanced BioScience Resources graphically discussing inducing “fetal demise,” having an intact fetus that “just fell out” while trying to prevent a live birth and complaining that in most cases, “the abdomen is always ripped open.” The embedded video below is heavily edited, though a full version is available on the group's website.

WORLD | An arrogant blowhard | Joel Belz | Sept. 19, 2015

So I don’t know. Trump’s glib promises about exporting 11 million illegal immigrants, along with his slick guarantees about building an impenetrable wall along the U.S.-Mexico border—they’re all just as oily as his smooth promise that the Bible is his favorite book. That detail would be a bit more believable if just once in his talkative career we’d ever heard Trump quote from that favorite source, much less thoughtfully root one of his public policy positions in a biblical truth. “The Bible means a lot to me,” Trump told a Washington Post reporter who asked him what his favorite verse was, “but I don’t want to get into specifics.”

The Passions That Prevent Adultery

I am a Christian Hedonist for theological reasons. I am after people’s affections; their hearts, their emotions, their feelings — because all of our behaviors come from this.

Ninety-nine-percent of what you do is: “out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks,” and the arms move, and you live (Matthew 12:34).

DOUBT: A Splinter In The Mind | by Bobby Conway

Horrifying so, doubt is no stranger to our time. And capturing the zeitgeist of our changing times is quite the project. We live in a multi-textured culture that is replete with innumerable beliefs, opinions, ideas, and life philosophies. Ours is a culture of doubt and longing, faith and questioning, searching and probing. And much of the doubt has been accelerated by fast-paced change. Our culture is living between the tension of what we once were and what we are now becoming. And for many, waiting in the blank space between the definition of what we were and the search to define what we are becoming feels for the moment confusing, and even a bit uncomfortable.

Two Bedtime Prayers for Weary Parents

I want to suggest two modest prayers to help you slow down during those moments when you tuck the kids into bed. This isn’t a list of theoretical principles or a fifteen-item list of prayer requests for your kids. Weary parents need simple and memorable prayers. When your mind is still spinning from the day’s labors, may these three-word prayers enable you take the few extra moments to linger with your children in the quietness of bedtime.

PhDs Build Character More than Careers

Waiting for the ink to dry on my recent PhD diploma, I began reflecting on the last several years of academic activity. Several questions quickly arose in my mind. Does the church need more trained servants with PhDs? With the rise in number of people with PhDs and significant instability in many sectors of Christian higher education, can I, in good conscience, encourage others to pursue PhDs? The title “independent scholar” is becoming increasingly commonplace at academic meetings, and a brief survey of the employment center at an annual Society of Biblical Literature (SBL) meeting reveals the days of getting a degree and simply walking into a professorship are long gone. So, if the PhD no longer holds the same career-enabling power as a “union card” for the academy, why go through the trouble?

‘Mister Rogers’ Is Headed to Netflix

Go ahead and plan on binge-watching all of the folksy wisdom and cardigan sweaters you can handle.

Same-sex ‘marriage’ started with lawbreaking

“When Gavin Newsom refused to submit to the law in 2004, he was a hero,” writes Brown. “When Kim Davis refuses to submit to the law, she is a bigot and a monster. (And make no mistake about it: His actions were far more flamboyant and aggressive than hers, and whereas as she is a self-professed ‘very private person’ who does not want the spotlight to the point of being overwhelmed and in tears because of the national attention, Newsom actively sought it out.)”

When does your religion legally excuse you from doing part of your job?

The record in this case suggests that the burden [on Davis] is more slight. As the Court has already pointed out, Davis is simply being asked to signify that couples meet the legal requirements to marry. The State is not asking her to condone same-sex unions on moral or religious grounds, nor is it restricting her from engaging in a variety of religious activities. Davis remains free to practice her Apostolic Christian beliefs. She may continue to attend church twice a week, participate in Bible Study and minister to female inmates at the Rowan County Jail. She is even free to believe that marriage is a union between one man and one woman, as many Americans do. However, her religious convictions cannot excuse her from performing the duties that she took an oath to perform as Rowan County Clerk. The Court therefore concludes that Davis is unlikely to suffer a violation of her free exercise rights under Kentucky Constitution § 5.

Christians Jailed, Homofascism Out of Control

There comes a time when the cup of endurance runs over, and men are no longer willing to be plunged into the abyss of despair. I hope, sirs, you can understand our legitimate and unavoidable impatience. You express a great deal of anxiety over our willingness to break laws. This is certainly a legitimate concern. Since we so diligently urge people to obey the Supreme Court’s decision of 1954 outlawing segregation in the public schools, at first glance it may seem rather paradoxical for us consciously to break laws. One may well ask: “How can you advocate breaking some laws and obeying others?” The answer lies in the fact that there are two types of laws: just and unjust. I would be the first to advocate obeying just laws. One has not only a legal but a moral responsibility to obey just laws. Conversely, one has a moral responsibility to disobey unjust laws. I would agree with St. Augustine that “an unjust law is no law at all.” Now, what is the difference between the two? How does one determine whether a law is just or unjust? A just law is a man made code that squares with the moral law or the law of God.

Kanye West Will Run for President of the United States in 2020

Kanye wants to make America great again. Last night during MTV’s VMAs, Kanye West was presented the Michael Jackson Vanguard Award, and was given a microphone and a stage, virtually assuring something memorable would happen. During the 12-minute acceptance speech, Kanye addressed the 2009 VMA controversy when he interrupted Taylor Swift (he still feels bad about it), his disdain for award shows in general (successful artists shouldn’t be labeled “losers”), the confidence of milliennials (“I’m confident. I believe in myself. We the millennials, bro. This is a new mentality. We not gonna control our kids with brands!”) and finally, his own political aspirations . Before he left stage, Kanye confirmed a suspicion literally no one had been considering. “Yes, as you probably could have guessed by this moment, I have decided in 2020, to run for president.” It’s hard to know if he was serious, but at this point, there is nothing Kanye West could do that would surprise anyone.

Should Adulterous Pastors Be Restored?

While each situation must be handled with pastoral wisdom, and some fallen pastors indeed might someday be restored to leadership, we believe this increasingly common scenario is both biblically incorrect and profoundly harmful to the well-being of the fallen pastor, his marriage, and the church of Jesus Christ. Our Lord Jesus was tempted in all points just as we are, yet it was his testing, not any failure, that made him strong. If we do not think clearly, we may be subtly encouraging people to grievous sin so they might experience more grace and thus minister more effectively. Incredibly, in the present context, some are saying things that imply just this notion.

Why Don’t Churches Ever Talk About Physical Health?

This is such an important issue! Thank you for bringing this up! My church actually started a fitness group last year after our pastors invited a certified doctor to come and speak at our church. It has made such a difference! People in my church, who formally dealt with many health issues (from back pain to failing organs), have radically changed the way we view health & fitness. Whole families are changing their diets, getting active, and generally just feeling better. I'm telling you - joy and peace are absolutely connected to taking care of our physical bodies. I don't sell anything... I'm just a huge advocate for health because I've seen what it has done in my friends' and family's lives. It's about way more than losing weight. It's about living an abundant life. The more we educate ourselves about our physical bodies and adopt a healthy lifestyle, the more effective our testimony will be in spreading the gospel. Health is His will--it should be ours, too!

Ten Systematic Theology Resources

Besides ofcourse Calvins Institues, I’m not that familiar with the other books. I know that Grudem and Berkhof are populair in the USA, but in Europe they are only known by theologians. And I think that they don’t use them. And most of the other authors are ofcourse famous, but I haven’t read those particular books. Until recent times theology, certainly liberal theology, in continental Europe was more focussed on German theology. Only in recent decades the focus shifted to the Anglo-Saxon world. So at the bookshelves of older pastors so you see many German commentary’s and books, because German theology was the mainline at universities at the time they study. Younger pastors almost entirely shift to Englisch commentary’s and books, both liberal and orthodox. A other point is, that continental-European theology is almost totally liberal. So their are not that many real theological works like dogmatics textbooks and commentary’s written and published from a orthodox-reformed point of view. Most of this kind of books have to come from the Anglo-Saxon world.

Give ‘em Good Fish and Chips Every Sunday

When I look out upon our congregation on Sunday morning I see a wide spectrum. I see faithful and mature folks who have been walking with the Lord for decades and then some who have been Christians for only a few months. I see people in their 60’s and then folks in their 20’s. In addition to that there are many little 5 year-olds staring up at me trying to understand. There are people from a completely biblically illiterate background and then there are those who have grown up in evangelical churches but never heard the gospel. Then there are many guys who are running hard theologically and wanting to be challenged and fed.

Just days after GOP hopeful Jeb Bush stops by Colbert on Sept. 8 (as previously announced ), Democratic candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders will be interviewed on The Late Show , showing that even though he’s no longer doing a political show, Colbert can still manage to draw big-name politicians. (Justice Stephen Breyer and UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon are also on the lineup .) And, despite generally being known for lighter fare, Jimmy Fallon is also getting in on the political hype. He's announced that on Sept. 11, Donald Trump will be a featured guest . All of this should be extremely fun to watch.

(Almost) The Whole Continuous Story of the Old Testament in Just 11 Books

Judges continues THE STORY by overlapping with the end of the book of Joshua with its focus on the details of Joshua’s death. Since the land has already been settled, this book provides a glimpse of the early years in the land when Israel was led by judges. This period marked by the rule of the judges is summarized by utilizing a similar cycle evidenced by each generation. The cycle is simple, yet disturbing. Each generation is characterized by eventual rebellion, followed by God’s judgment, their crying out to the Lord, the Lord raising up of a deliverer, the actual deliverance, and a subsequent return to obedience for a period of time until the cycle repeats itself. Consequently, many generations are covered as the author seeks to make it clear what this time period was like for Israel. When they are disobedient, there are consequences, but, when they walk in faithfulness, the Lord in his mercy restores them to a place of blessing.

Come Reason's Apologetics Notes: Christians Cannot be Intellectual Slackers

C. S. Lewis had a great quote when talking about the followers of Christ. He said, "God is no fonder of intellectual slackers than of any other slackers. If you are thinking of being a Christian, I warn you: you are embarking on something that is going to take the whole of you, brains and all." I completely agree. Christians today have accepted the secular world's idea that somehow faith and reason inhabit separate spheres. The two are sitting on opposite ends of a spectrum and the more one applies tools such as logic and philosophy to his or her beliefs, the less and less they will be considered faithful or pleasing to God. A bumper sticker that used to be fairly popular summed up this kind of attitude: "God said it, I believe it, that settles it." But nowhere in scripture are we commanded to approach our beliefs blindly. In fact, we are commanded to do just the opposite. When Jesus was asked what the most important commandment was he replied, "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength" (Mark 12:30).

College Doesn’t Change Your Heart, It Reveals It

To an extent matched by no other time in the life course, emerging adults enjoy and endure multiple, layered, big, and often unanticipated life transitions. They move out, they move back, they plan to move out again. They go to college, they drop out, they transfer, they take a break for a semester to save money, some graduate, some don’t. They want to study architecture, they hate architecture, they switch to criminal justice, a different career path. Their parents separate, make up, get divorced, remarry. They take a job, they quit, they find another, they get promoted, they move. They meet new friends, their old friends change, their friends don’t get along, they meet more new people. They get new roommates, their roommates don’t work out, they find a new apartment. They buy insurance, they wreck their car, they cancel their insurance, they borrow a car. They find their soulmate, they get involved, their soulmate dumps them, they are crushed. They believe in saving sex for meaningful relationships, they hook up, they get angry with themselves, they look for a meaningful relationship.

The secret of Mother Teresa's greatness | Fox News

My old boss Chuck Colson, who founded Prison Fellowship and BreakPoint, greatly admired Mother Teresa. In fact, he corresponded with her and kept a plaque on his desk with one of her sayings: “Faithfulness, not success.” When President Ronald Reagan was asked what he told Mother Teresa at the White House in 1986, he said he had listened instead; New York mayor Ed Koch said it was impossible to say no to her when she wanted something. Mother Teresa never thought she was too important to scrub toilets at the motherhouse in India; and she so disliked spending money on plane tickets that she wrote to one airline offering to work as a flight attendant in exchange for being allowed to fly free.

Just days after the business’ CEO resigned, the company released a statement claiming it gained hundreds of thousands of new accounts in recent days, adding “Last week alone, women sent more than 2.8 million messages within our platform." They also boasted that despite the hack, “Ashley Madison is the number one service for people seeking discreet relationships."

Beware of These Preaching Shortcuts

2. Beware of the shortcut of second-hand interpretation. When listening to others we must not just copy others. Ash tells the story of how early in his ministry he heard a famous preacher nail a sermon and figured that he and his hearers would be better served if he just copied the sermon and delivered it as his own. The result was a true failure. Why? First the context was completely different, so the style didn’t translate well. Secondly, the sermon was terribly superficial. He had not been gripped and shaped by the passage. In short it wasn’t in them. You can’t expect to put the sermon in someone else if it is not in you first.

44 The Law Doesn’t Say You Must Quit Your Job - Stand to Reason Blog

Under Title VII of the federal Civil Rights Act, both public and private employers have a duty to exempt religious employees from generally applicable work rules, so long as this won’t create an “undue hardship,” meaning more than a modest cost, on the employer. If the employees can be accommodated in a way that would let the job still get done without much burden on the employer, coworkers, and customers — for instance by switching the employee’s assignments with another employee or by otherwise slightly changing the job duties — then the employer must accommodate them….

Should Adulterous Pastors Be Restored?

The Bible tells of several prominent fallen leaders who had significant roles after their failure. Moses, David, and Peter immediately come to mind. But we must not rush to employ these three examples in discussing morally fallen pastors, Consider several important matters: (1) Moses’ sin of murder came 40 years before his leadership began, and he spent a virtual lifetime in the desert following this serious fall. (2) David’s sin would have brought the death penalty to anyone else. Further, he was a Middle Eastern, harem-keeping potentate, not a domestic role model for New Testament shepherds. Remember also that his kingdom and family never knew peace after his moral turpitude-his throne never regained its former stability. (3) Peter’s sin was serious, but it was not “against the body” (1 Cor. 6:18), and while it was a character sin, it was not the kind of volitional and cavalier deception that is characteristic of adultery. Neither was it premeditated, prolonged, or repeated in darkness.

We Don't Get to Choose our Martyrs | HeadHeartHand Blog

So, this morning, let’s pray for a Christian sister who is in prison indefinitely (until she changes her mind, the Judge said) for refusing to issue gay marriage licenses in the USA. (Whoever thought such a sentence would ever be written in “the land of the free and the home of the brave”? And let’s have a bit more of the latter, please). Pray that she would be kept from the “lions”, that she would hold firm and strong, and that she would know the presence of the Son of God beside her in this fiery trial. And may she inspire us all to have the courage of our convictions and stand wherever, whenever, and for whatever God has called us to fight.
