Why We Let the Little Ones Come to the Service – Christian Article

I remember the Sunday driving home from church when Becky said, “Wow, I think I was able to listen to the whole sermon today.” Our kids had finally reached the age where they were able to sit still in our church’s service without needing attention. Now we’ve “started over” with two more children. There is no doubt that welcoming children into the service is difficult for parents, but I am convinced it is the best thing for the children, the…

Is He Really That Good? – Lifestream – Christian Article

How do we know for sure whether God is loving and gracious, or cold and distant? I understand that you had some input on the story-line of the book the Shack. I have read the book and watched the movie. Do you think that is who God really is? It just seems too good to be true on so many levels. I know some people struggle with the Old Testament God versus the gracious Jesus. However, for me even Jesus…

Work Is Not a Curse by Doug Ponder – Christian Article

Imagine paradise. Really. Take a moment imagine you are in paradise. What do you see? Maybe you picture a remote tropical island with water clearer than a swimming pool. You can almost feel your toes sinking into the white sands warmed by the sun. Or maybe you imagine yourself reclining in an over-sized Adirondack chair. The fire in the stone hearth provides the perfect respite from the crisp mountain air as you curl up to spend the day reading…

Jesus Is God: Jude and Peter Tell Me So – Christian Article

The epistles of Peter and Jude are often overlooked in preaching and Bible study. Not only are they nestled among the more popular letters of Paul and the book of Revelation, but portions of these epistles sound odd to our modern sensibilities. That wasn’t the case in the first century. We can better grasp the meaning of these letters if we understand what they have in common with influential ancient Jewish and Christian writings that were circulating at the time.…

Preaching Romans: Four Perspectives | Mike Bird – Christian Article

Coming soon from Eerdmans. Preaching Romans Four Perspectives DESCRIPTION First-rate scholars and preachers on four interpretive approaches to Paul and Romans Pauline scholarship is a minefield of differing schools of thought. Those who teach or preach on Paul can quickly get lost in the weeds of the various perspectives. How, then, can pastors today best preach Paul’s message? Scot McKnight and Joseph B. Modica have assembled this stellar one-stop guide exploring four major interpretive perspectives on the apostle Paul: Reformational,…

A Pastoral Prayer about Joy – Christian Article

Every now and again I like to share an example of a pastoral prayer from Grace Fellowship Church. I do this because there are few examples of pastoral prayers online and I thought these may serve to inspire themes, passages, or ideas as other pastors and elders prepare to lead their churches in prayer. Here is one I prayed before my church near the start of a new year. *** Our Father, This morning we want to echo the psalmist…

Wait no longer for a new year; long no more for a fresh start. The calendar is completely reset.

It’s beyond easy, and tempting, to assume our timing is best…

God’s 7,000 Year Plan – Christian Evidence – Christian Article

//pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/js/adsbygoogle.js (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push(); Why did God take 6 days to create the world when He could have just snapped His fingers and poof, there it was? Why did God not create in 1 day, 2, 3, 4, 5, 8, 9 days, yet He could but He created for 6 days and rested the 7th day?  “Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done.” (Isaiah 46:10) Many believe that…

Our Coffee Obsession: Episode 520 – Christian Article

21:41 –  What do first dates, morning devos, church lobbies and Christian meet-ups have in common? Yep, that magical brown liquid known as “coffee.” Some folks, like our panel member John, spend their weekends scouring shops for the best beans. Others, like Loann, don’t think it’s worth the cash. Lisa is a self-described “volume drinker,” and Jake considers himself neutral but has vices of his own (hint: Doritos). Listen as the panel argues, admits, and attempts to be real about…

Helping Me Breathe Again: Katie Laitkep’s Story | Programs – Christian Article

Program Resources Watch Katie’s Story. Leslie Basham: What was your life like at age fifteen? Here’s what Katie Laitkep remembers. Katie Laitkep: I would sit on a metal stool for about eight hours a day in this room that felt a lot like an aquarium. I would just sit there, and about every ten, fifteen minutes or so, I would walk to the front of the room and I would get an injection in my arm. Then I would go…

The Only Story of Jesus as a Boy in the New Testament – The Bart Ehrman Blog – Christian Article

Based on the feedback I’ve received on the blog this past week, I’ve decided to reinstate the weekly Readers’ Mailbag.   I have actually continued responding to questions since abandoning the feature of the blog, but in a less formal way.  Formalizing it seems like a popular option, and so I’ll try to do this once a week.   I start this week with an interesting question about Jesus as a boy.   QUESTION Outside the birth narratives, the only canonical story…

Should Women be Silent in Church? (1 Corinthians 14:34-35) – Escape to Reality – Christian Article

My three daughters are growing up in a country where women often reach the highest levels of leadership. In New Zealand we’ve had female heads of state and government and everything else besides. As a father, I am thrilled that my daughters will be able to do just about anything they put their mind to. As long as they don’t aspire to preach, teach, or speak in church. The women are to keep silent in the churches; for they are…

Persuasion 155 | Silent Night – Christian Article

http://traffic.libsyn.com/capcpod/Persuasion_155.mp3 For most of us, Christmas delivers us everything but the Silent Night we sing about in that iconic carol. Our preparations for celebrating Christmas could rarely be described as heavenly peace. It’s more like earthly chaos as we race about collecting our gifts, visiting family and friends, and attending performances and parties. As we repeat the lines of Silent Night each year, it can spark waves of guilt: We know our lives—and our hearts—are not living up to this…

1450 | In the Beginning Was the Word – White Horse Inn – Christian Article

PROGRAM AUDIO & RESOURCES Why does the Gospel of John begin with this strange concept of the Word of God who was “with God” and yet somehow also “was God”? Some have tried to argue that the author of this text attempted to borrow concepts from Greek philosophy in order to appeal to his largely Gentile readers. Others push back against this idea, saying that John’s approach is entirely consistent with Jewish beliefs and expectations. On this program the hosts…

Learning to Live Loved – Lifestream – Christian Article

I’m finishing up my two weeks on the east coast this weekend Raleigh, NC with an amazing group of people who have been through a lot of pain, but are still finding their way into what it means to escape the clutches of religion and embrace a life in the Father’s love.  So excited to be here with them and share together what Father’s been teaching all of us. If you’re in the area and want to join us on…

Praying the Beatitudes | Devotional by Sylvia Gunter – Christian Article

The Beatitudes are the radical new order of blessedness initiated by the new covenant signed in the blood of Jesus. They are not the Scriptural equivalent of your mama’s admonition to “be sweet.” They outline the new way of the kingdom that Jesus said we should seek above all else (Matthew 6:33). It is a tall order to be like Jesus, like His dependence, His compassion, His humility, His longing for the Father’s glory. The Beatitudes are conditional promises of…

A Graveyard Is a Good Place to Make Big Decisions – Christian Article

Years ago I was driving through a rural area of west Tennessee, on my way to a little cottage on the Pickwick Dam in north Mississippi, where I’d take a couple of days away to write. Much was on my mind. I had large decisions in front of me—decisions that would shape the whole course of my future. My immediate problem wasn’t the course of my future, but the course of my actual journey at the time. I was lost.…

3 Important Questions for the Church about the Lord’s Supper – Christian Article

How Is Christ Present in the Supper? New Testament writers stress that Christ is present at the Supper he has appointed for his people. This is a running characteristic of covenant meals—the presence of God with his people for their blessing. Any understanding of the Supper that reduces it to a bare memorial or a mere exercise of intellectual recollection of the meaning of the cross is inadequate. Of course, the Supper is an ordinance of remembrance, and recipients must…

Friend Finder: Episode 521 – Boundless – Christian Article

21:51 –  As our listener Natasha pointed out, making friends in our 20s and 30s can be tough. It seems like everyone is in different life stages, and too engaged in work or family to be readily available. Our panel knows exactly how you feel: Jake once got turned down by a mentor, Kathryn threw a lame party, and Matt moved across the country away from all his friends. So what’s the key to moving past failure and making good…

Blood and Soil: One Year After Charlottesville – Christian Article

August 16, 2018 by Deacon Piatt It’s been a year since the deadly “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville took place. What has happened since then?
