Remembering Ravi Zacharias | Thinking Out Loud – Christian Article

Then I shall end my sad complaintsAnd weary sinful days,And join with the triumphant saintsThat sing my Savior’s praise.-Richard Baxter* It’s difficult to add anything to what other voices have been sharing in the past 24 hours, but it also strikes me that silence isn’t appropriate.

Are You Living in Fear or in Faith? It’s Time to Stand Out! – Christian Article

The Marriam-Webster dictionary defines Fear as: ‘an unpleasant emotion by anticipation or awareness of danger.’ Here is a question for you before continuing with this article. Are you living in Fear or in Faith? Faith in God is the complete trust in God; trusting God wholeheartedly. So, can you still identify whether you are living in Fear or in Faith?

Ravi Zacharias and Abdu Murray Team Up to Look at Jesus – Christian Article

Review: Seeing Jesus from The East: A Fresh Look at History’s Most Influential Person by Ravi Zacharias and Abdu Murray (Zondervan, 2020) One of the challenges when multiple authors combine to cover a particular topic — especially when the individual chapters were not written collaboratively — is that that there is often nothing which unifies the book as a whole. When I started reading Seeing Jesus From the East, I resigned myself to reading it as a collection of nine…

How to Be the ONE Person that Makes an Impact – Christian Article

I have been lucky enough over my life to attend many sporting events of all levels. Football, basketball, baseball, golf, tennis, and more. I love the aspect of live sporting events especially in a big stadium with thousands of people cheering for the same team. But, it only takes one person to make an impact. Regardless of the sport, or venue, there is always one constant. The fans. I also love people watching and meeting new people, which may be…

Gary Habermas: Easily the strongest indication that Jesus was who he said he was – Christian Article

  Very early, I realized that if Jesus was raised from the dead in time-space history, then this would easily be the strongest indication that Jesus was who he said he was. But at that time, I knew neither the evidence for the resurrection nor any strong reasons for concluding that Jesus thought of himself as Deity. Only years later, after 18 books on this subject along with debates and dialogues with some of the brightest minds around, did I…

Jack Christian? (Not the Movie Producer) – Christian Article

Jack Rabbit (Wikipedia) — sourcing this image meant adding a note to the third definition below. Until yesterday, I had never heard the term ‘Jack Mormon.’ It was a two-word reply to something in a long string of texting I was doing with a friend in Toronto, and I had to pause and check it out. Wikipedia is always a good place to start: The term Jack Mormon is a slang term originating in nineteenth-century America. It was originally used…

Nothing Much to Add to What’s Being Said – Christian Article

“A lot of people will be home,” I reasoned, “And a lot of them will be bored.” As I have often repeated, at the ten year mark I granted myself exemption from the drive to post daily here, but I figured this would be a good time to be creating content. Unfortunately, as I tried to put pen to paper — so to speak — I found it very difficult to engage any form of creativity. I’ve thought of re-purposing…

How to Make Counterfeit and Quivering Christians – Christian Article

The story you’re about to read is fictional, counterfeit even, but represents a reality that continues to play out again and again. Well-meaning Christians present the gospel and then offer their listener immediate assurance of salvation via the incantation of a prepackaged prayer absent serious discipleship. Left in the wake, we often find two types of professing Christians. We’ll call them Keith and Katie; one is the counterfeit and the other is the quivering christian. As small children, Keith and…

Five Reasons Christianity Did Not Copy Mystery Religions – Christian Article

  Five Reasons Christianity Did Not Copy Mystery Religions by Dr. Doug Potter It may come as a shock to hear some who say Christianity borrows the beliefs of ancient mystery religions. Was the story of Christ, Christmas itself, just taken from the pages of pagan religions? Is the virgin birth, the deity of Christ, the resurrection and salvation from sin copied from ancient Greek and Roman cults? If so, this would seem to suggest that Christianity is a copycat…
