  • Satan Does Not Hold the Keys of Death

    ligonier ^ | 8/25/14 | RC Sproul
    We have different vocations with respect to the jobs and tasks God gives us in this life. But we all share in the vocation of death. Every one of us is called to die. That vocation is as much a calling from God as is a “call” to the ministry of Christ. Sometimes the call comes suddenly and without warning. Sometimes it comes with advance notification. But it comes to all of us. And it comes from God.I am aware that there are teachers who tell us that God has nothing to do with death. Death is seen strictly as...

    Ebola patient Dr Kent Brantly beamed with delight today as he thanked God for sparing his life and prepared to leave hospital after being declared free of the deadly disease. The American missionary doctor looked a little frail but healthy as he gripped the hand of his wife Amber amid a large medical team at a Emory University Hospital press conference in Atlanta, Georgia. The 33-year-old said: 'Today is a miraculous day. I am thrilled to be alive, to be well and to be reunited with my family.' He thanked God for saving his life, saying that the thousands of...
  • Gods Not Dead, But Some Are Trying: Why are they so angry at someone who doesn't exist?

    Pajamas Media ^ | 08/19/2014 | Andrew Klavan
    Take a look at some of these reviews for the religious indie hit God’s Not Dead [1]:From Britain’s Socialist newspaper The Guardian [2]: ”This warped evangelist item… veers from the suspect… to the outright hateful: by the jawdropping climax, wherein a preacher is effectively granted divine right to mow down non-believers, ‘doing God’s work’ has become indistinguishable from Grand Theft Auto. Ban this sick filth.”Here’s one from Movie Nation [3]: ”It’s a movie where rare is the voice that is raised, but deep is the rage bubbling through its rabid anti-intellectualism. When a non-believer is considered to be better...

    Break Point ^ | 08/18/2014 | By: Rolley Haggard
    It is commonly supposed that if God can't do absolutely anything and everything, then He isn't all-powerful. Yet Scripture teaches there are some things even God cannot do, though it affirms in countless places that He is, nonetheless, almighty. Here is a list of things the Bible says outright, or by necessary implication, God cannot do: 1. Lie (or do anything else immoral)Titus 1:2 2. Deny Himself (i.e., do anything out of character)2 Timothy 2:13 3. Remit/forgive sins without the shedding of blood (i.e., taking of life)Hebrews 9:22 4. Avoid going to Calvary if man is to have hope of...

    Actor Kevin Sorbo isnt shy about sharing his views on politics and religion, which he has candidly detailed in past interviews with TheBlaze. And in a recent appearance on Access Hollywood, the Gods Not Dead star spoke out about atheism, saying he doesnt understand why some nonbelievers get so offended by something they dont believe in. The actor, who is a Christian, went on to call it weird that atheists often become so turned off by nativity scenes that they try to get them removed from public property, especially considering that they dont believe that these religious symbols hold any...

    When we witness the anguish, the anger, the questions, the devastation that comes to families that experience the death of a child, we find ourselves desperate to figure out what we can do, what we can say, that will truly help. In the retreats my husband and I host for couples who have faced the death of a child, participants often talk about the ways people have been there for them in the midst of the worst pain they can imagine, as well as the ways people have added to their pain. If you could be a fly on the...

In Surprised by Suffering, R.C. Sproul argues that we should expect pain and sorrow in this life.

God promises in His Word that difficult times will come upon us, but He also promises that He allows suffering for our good and His glory, and He will never give us...

    When, in 2012, EPA official Al Almendariz likened his enforcement strategy for federal drilling policies to Romans’ peacekeeping tactics in the Mediterranean — “Crucify them,” he quipped — he was only exhibiting what many already knew: that the Environmental Protection Agency performs its work with an almost religious zeal. But the agency’s latest effort — a massive clampdown on the nation’s coal industry — is receiving actual religious imprimatur. This week 28 religious leaders, representing not only a number of Christian denominations (Presbyterian, Episcopal, Lutheran, Methodist, Quaker, Baptist, and more) but other faiths (Jewish, Hindu, Buddhist, and Bahāʾī), testified in...

    American society is currently in a dysfunctional state, and like all things dysfunctional, it will implode if not addressed very soon. We live in a world that contains a vast amount of knowledge, but little understanding. The United States has not experienced extreme tyranny, but it is headed in that direction. The shift of authority from private sector to public sector has created a serious imbalance. As a country, there is great arrogance. We take for granted that we will always be the land of the free.

She went on to write, I do not want him. I have no use for him. I have no missionary zeal at all. While many Christians likely attempt to project a little more enthusiasm for evangelism, Im not sure they do not, deep down, resonate with Sayers sentiment.

    Proverb 21 (NKJV) The LORD Considers the Heart 01 The king's heart is in the hand of the LORD, 00 Like the rivers of water; He turns it wherever He wishes. 02 Every way of a man is right in his own eyes, 00 But the LORD weighs the hearts. 03 To do righteousness and justice 00 Is more acceptable to the LORD than sacrifice. 04 A haughty look, a proud heart, 00 And the plowing of the wicked are sin. 05 The plans of the diligent lead surely to plenty, 00 But those of everyone who is hasty,...

    Proverb 20 (NKJV) Wine Is a Mocker 01 Wine is a mocker, 00 Strong drink is a brawler, 00 And whoever is led astray by it is not wise. 02 The wrath of a king is like the roaring of a lion; 00 Whoever provokes him to anger sins against his own life. 03 It is honorable for a man to stop striving, 00 Since any fool can start a quarrel. 04 The lazy man will not plow because of winter; 00 He will beg during harvest and have nothing. 05 Counsel in the heart of man is like...

    Have you ever looked at all the schlock were currently mired in thanks to BHOs fundamental transformation of America and thought, or actually said, Screw it. Im done. I officially dont give a crap anymore. I have. And I prize myself as being somewhat of a scrappy-faith-filled dude. I hate to admit it, but sometimes I get sick and tired of being sick and tired. As a 51-year-old, I remember the good old days when we had at least quasi-legit leaders who gave a nominal flip about the continuation and betterment of this grand experiment called America. I recall how...

    Scientists are working to bring the multiverse hypothesis, which to some sounds like a fanciful tale, firmly into the realm of testable science. Never mind the Big Bang; in the beginning was the vacuum. The vacuum simmered with energy (variously called dark energy, vacuum energy, the inflation field, or the Higgs field). Like water in a pot, this high energy began to evaporate -- bubbles formed.

    Proverb 19 (NKJV) The Fear of the Lord Leads to Life 01 Better is the poor who walks in his integrity 00 Than one who is perverse in his lips, and is a fool. 02 Also it is not good for a soul to be without knowledge, 00 And he sins who hastens with his feet. 03 The foolishness of a man twists his way, 00 And his heart frets against the LORD. 04 Wealth makes many friends, 00 But the poor is separated from his friend. 05 A false witness will not go unpunished, 00 And he who...

    Bible NKJV | 900 BC | Solomon
    Proverb 18 (NKJV) The Name of the LORD Is a Strong Tower 01 A man who isolates himself seeks his own desire; 00 He rages against all wise judgment. 02 A fool has no delight in understanding, 00 But in expressing his own heart. 03 When the wicked comes, contempt comes also; 00 And with dishonor comes reproach. 04 The words of a man's mouth are deep waters; 00 The wellspring of wisdom is a flowing brook. 05 It is not good to show partiality to the wicked, 00 Or to overthrow the righteous in judgment. 06 A fool's...

    Proverb 17 (NKJV) The LORD Tests Hearts 01 Better is a dry morsel with quietness, 00 Than a house full of feasting with strife. 02 A wise servant will rule over a son who causes shame, 00 And will share an inheritance among the brothers. 03 The refining pot is for silver and the furnace for gold, 00 But the LORD tests the hearts. 04 An evildoer gives heed to false lips; 00 A liar listens eagerly to a spiteful tongue. 05 He who mocks the poor reproaches his Maker; 00 He who is glad at calamity will not...

    Proverb 16 (NKJV) Wisdom Is Better Than Gold 01 The preparations of the heart belong to man, 00 But the answer of the tongue is from the LORD. 02 All the ways of a man are pure in his own eyes, 00 But the LORD weighs the spirits. 03 Commit your works to the LORD, 00 And your thoughts will be established. 04 The LORD has made all for Himself, 00 Yes, even the wicked for the day of doom. 05 Everyone proud in heart is an abomination to the LORD; 00 Though they join forces, none will go...
