How Consciousness Points to the Existence of God (Video) | Cold Case Christianity

This video, excerpted from J. Warner Wallace’s presentation of the evidence for God (from his book, God’s Crime Scene), summarizes the case for Gods existence from consciousness. How does non-material consciousness emerge in a purely material universe? Is “mind” nothing more than “brain”? For a robust review of the collective case for God’s existence from eight pieces of evidence “inside the room” of the natural universe, please refer to God’s Crime Scene: A Cold-Case Homicide Detective Examines the Evidence for a Divinely Created Universe.

Don’t Underestimate the Doctrine of Providence

If I were having that same painful conversation in the little room tomorrow, I’m sure I wouldn’t be looking forward to it. My palms might still be sweaty. But I hope I’d have a confidence this time I didn’t have before. I hope I’d be expecting God to work for me, even through the cutting words of angry people. God’s providence doesn’t make our troubles go away, but it does frame them within his majestic and loving purposes for us. This doctrine matters for life.

2 Gideon: From Coward to Conqueror

Incredibly, the Lord used this faint-hearted grain farmer to deliver His people from their deadly enemies. When we were first introduced to Gideon, he was sneaking around like a coward, hiding in a winepress. He was the most unlikely of potential heroes. But God elevated him to win a decisive battle against impossible odds—not to exalt Gideon—but to demonstrate His mighty power to save His people. In response, Gideon rightly recognized that the Lord alone deserved all the glory. The young man’s dramatic transformation, from faithless to fearless, is such that he is included in the New Testament among the elite examples of the heroes of faith (Hebrews 11:32). His example of faith-filled dependence on the Lord serves as a perpetual reminder of the strength that God supplies to those who trust in Him.

Molecular bodyguards for immature membrane proteins

During their formation within the cells, many proteins rely on the assistance of molecular protectors, so-called chaperones. They help the proteins to fold correctly and thus ensure the right final structure. The roles of chaperones in membrane protein folding have long remained unclear. Researchers at the Biozentrum, University of Basel, and at ETH Zurich have now shown how chaperones stabilize an immature bacterial membrane protein and guide it in the right folding direction, thus protecting it from misfolding. Their study was recently published in Nature Structural & Molecular Biology .

WORLD | Lawyer mum on Kim Davis’ future | Leigh Jones | Sept. 8, 2015

News of Davis’ release order came just a few hours before she was set to met with Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, both of whom are running for the Republican presidential nomination. U.S. Rep. Thomas Massie, R-Ky., who attended today’s rally, said Bunning’s decision to jail Davis was premature because Kentucky’s laws are still in flux after the U.S. Supreme Court legalized gay marriage nationwide earlier this year. The Kentucky legislature is faced with updating several state laws affected by the ruling, including the statute requiring all marriage licenses to be issued under the county clerk’s authority.

Why I Go To Church Even When I Don’t Feel Like It

I’ve benefitted from the sacrificial commitment and consistency of countless people who have welcomed me into community over the years, and now I recognize the invitation for me to do the same thing for others: to hold that space even on days when I don’t seem to personally benefit from it. When the songs don’t do anything for me, when I don’t want to talk with people about the difficult week I’ve had, or when I’d rather sleep in instead—it is then that I am invited to go to church anyway.

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.

Hope for Hard Marriages

It says in 1 Corinthians 7:10–11, “To the married I give this charge (not I, but the Lord): the wife should not separate from her husband (but if she does, she should remain unmarried or else be reconciled to her husband), and the husband should not divorce his wife.” And then he addresses the rest — this is verse 12: “To the rest I say (I, not the Lord) [and that is what I am wondering if she is asking about] that if any brother has a wife who is an unbeliever, and she consents to live with him, he should not divorce her. If any woman has a husband who is an unbeliever, and he consents to live with her, she should not divorce him.” That is what she is referring to, and she wonders: Are those God’s words or just Paul’s words? And I am going to give four reasons why I believe they are God’s words and Paul’s words.

Moses and Jesus Didn’t Have Their Dream Jobs By 30, Either

These traditional markers of success don’t mean as much to our generation, though. We care more about having financial independence right now than planning for a vague retirement 40 years down the road, and, because we are more mobile, we view home buying as more of an investment opportunity than a way of putting down roots. But even as we shrug off others’ expectations, we can still be haunted by the old narrative. As we watch peers on a more traditional path taking plum jobs or scoring big promotions, we wonder, “Shouldn’t I be further along in my career by now?”

“Thou shalt not commit adultery.” One of the most striking aspects of the Seventh Commandment is its utter simplicity. Without equivocation or evasion, God’s law is clear and self-explanatory. The very fact that God included adultery in the “thou shall nots” of the Ten Commandments indicates its particular evil and danger. Moses did not have to provide further elaboration.

Bavinck on the Christian Life: Following Jesus in Faithful Service

If the aim of Bavinck on the Christian Life  was simply to expound Bavinck’s views, it’s a resounding success. But Bolt isn’t a mere historical theologian; he’s a contemporary systematician, so he has an eye to apply Bavinck’s insights to current issues. In one sense, this is the easiest part of his job. After all, the confounding social issues of the early 20th century are no less confounding in the early 21st. Wealth inequality? Gender distinctions? Social justice? They’re all here, and more. On a few occasions Bolt moves well beyond direct applications of Bavinck, and he can be provocative: just see his warnings about the recent emphasis on “radical” discipleship (43–47) and his surprisingly stark “cease and desist” order for those who speak of ministry as “incarnational” (79–81). Hobby horses derail many less skillful and less mature writers, but Bolt keeps this sort of thing short, infrequent, and constructive.

'Rectify' Shows Integrity in the Age of the Anti-Hero

Now a free man, of a kind, Daniel Holden often feels conflicted by his past, as well as his present unpredictable behavior, echoing Paul in his letter to the Romans: “I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do.” Daniel feels an incredible amount of guilt for the stress his situation has put on his family, guilty or not. In the season 3 finale, “The Source,” Daniel takes a detour on a road trip with his mother Janet to visit the prison he inhabited for all those years. Back in the car after stepping out to look at the distant penitentiary, Daniel confesses, “Sometimes I want to walk to the front gate and ask them to let me back in. Back into my box. My cocoon. That’s not right thinking, mother.” Following his admission, Daniel says, “But today I want to go to the beach, and feel the sand between the toes and look up at that infinite sky.”

El Relativismo Moral Otro Intento Fallido De Explicar Lo Que Es Innegable "Morales Absolutos"

Muchos filósofos y pensadores ateos buscan explicar las verdades morales desde “dentro de la habitación” del universo natural. Ellos ofrecen que las sociedades y culturas son la fuente de la moralidad. De acuerdo con este punto de vista (llamado “relativismo moral”), la moralidad varía de cultura a cultura. No hay morales  universales que son objetivas ni transcendentes para “todas las personas todo el tiempo.” Los relativistas morales creen que las culturas y los grupos de personas son los que crean sus propios códigos morales en vez de descubrirlos. Los códigos morales son una construcción social diseñada por la mayoría para ayudar a que el grupo mantenga la armonía social y aumenta su capacidad de supervivencia. Pero si el acuerdo cultural determina las verdades morales, varias problemas emergen:

5 good reasons to read the entire Bible every year

During my lengthier-than-I-first-intended career as a seminary student, I followed the same practice and after a few years, I had read through the Bible several times. The results have been massively helpful for both my walk with the Lord and the teaching and preaching ministry he has given me. More recently, comments by two of my ministry heroes, John Piper and R. C. Sproul, have encouraged me to continue this approach to Bible intake. Piper: “When all your favorite preachers are gone, and their books are forgotten, you will have your Bible. Master it.” And then, there are these manly words from Dr. Sproul: “I’ll retire when they pry my cold, dead fingers off my Bible.” Words like those encourage me to stay saturated in God’s Word. Reading through it perennially is one means of accomplishing that.

Stinginess Is More Sinful than Divorce, Say Churchgoing Evangelicals

Most evangelicals agree that having luxuries in and of themselves is not wrong: 77 percent of white evangelicals and 72 percent of black Protestants (as well as 74 percent of all weekly worshipers) said that living in a larger house than a family needs is not sinful. In fact, fewer people condemn having a lot of square feet than condemn drinking alcohol or using energy without thinking about its environmental impact. (Roughly 1 in 5 white evangelicals, black Protestants, and weekly worshipers say each is a sin.)

An In-Depth Interview with Vern Poythress on Biblical Theology and Christ in the Old Testament

Many people are most interested in what to think about God’s promises of final salvation through Christ. These promises are most fully articulated in the NT, and are associated with the new covenant. The promises always come in relation to Christ, who is both God and man (Heb. 1:3; 2:11, 14). As man, Christ was required to trust in God the Father and to obey the Father’s will. These requirements for Christ were, in a sense, “conditions.” Apart from his trust and his obedience, no one would have been saved. At the same time, because Christ is God, and because God promised in the OT that he would infallibly accomplish salvation (Isa. 42:3-4), Christ’s obedience was guaranteed. That does not make his obedience easy or trivial. Remember how he prayed in the Garden of Gethsemane. Hebrews comments on the deep reality of his obedient suffering: “In the days of his flesh, Jesus offered up prayers and supplications, with loud cries and tears, to him who was able to save him from death, and he was heard because of his reverence. Although he was a son, he learned obedience through what he suffered” (Heb.

41 Jesus and His Passion | Reasonable Faith

Now in assessing the claims of the revisionist critics, it’s important that we don’t miss the forest for the trees: What’s remarkable here is the degree of agreement on the events of Jesus’ Passion. Even the sceptical critics affirm the central events of Jesus’ Passion: his triumphal entry into Jerusalem on the back of a donkey as a herald of the Kingdom of God in fulfillment of Zechariah’s prophecy, Jesus’ disruptive action in the Temple driving out the money-changers and their animals, the involvement of the Jewish authorities in Jesus’ arrest and trial (or hearing) before them, Jesus’ being delivered to Pilate on the charge of sedition, and Pilate’s condemning Jesus to crucifixion as a pretended King of Jews. It is stunning testimony to the historical credibility of the Gospels that even sceptical critics find themselves compelled by the evidence to admit the historicity of the fundamental outline of Jesus’ Passion and death. Their main point of contention has to do with whether it was the Jewish or the Roman authorities that were chiefly responsible for Jesus’ death.

WORLD | Motions for defense | J.C. Derrick | Sept. 19, 2015

Union’s CCCU decision is only one of many issues facing it and every school committed to Christ-centered education. When the U.S. Supreme Court in June forced all 50 states to legalize same-sex marriage, it carried huge implications for faith-based institutions of all types, but higher education will likely be one of the first fronts to feel its effects. From hiring, housing, and admissions policies to tax-exempt status, Christian colleges and universities are grappling with issues that could fundamentally change the way they operate—and may put at risk the existence of some.

Ligonier Ministries

Another article this month will deal with the history of study Bibles , so I won’t go into detail on that specific subject. However, I do want to point out that our efforts to produce a study Bible are born of the same passion that drove men in years past to get the Word of God into the minds and hearts and souls of every person. This passion compelled William Tyndale to cross the whole continent of Europe, moving from city to city to escape execution, translating the ancient Hebrew into words that a literate plowboy could read and understand. After the Diet of Worms, Martin Luther fled in a faked-kidnapping episode to the Wartburg castle. There, he donned a disguise and undertook the task of putting the Bible into the German vernacular. This was anathema to the Roman church—Luther was told that if he were to translate the Bible into the common tongue, he would open a floodgate of iniquity. Hundreds of different denominations would arise, each claiming to base their faith on the Bible. Luther agreed that that could very well happen. But, he said, if getting the gospel that is plain enough for every child to understand into the hands of the normal person carries with it the risk that some will misinterpret Scripture and open a floodgate of iniquity, then so be it.
