Guest Post by Judy Siker – The Bart Ehrman Blog – Christian Article

This is the second guest post by Judy Siker, who last week explained about her upbringing as a Christian in the south and then her move into the academic study of the Bible from a critical perspective.  If you recall, Judy was my student in the (very secular!) graduate program in New Testament/Early Christianity here at UNC, where she did both a Masters and PhD in the field, focusing, in her dissertation, on the socio-historical background to the Gospel of…

Crazy, Outrageous & unexpected… – Christian Article

Photo by Jametlene Reskp on Unsplash I was reading John 13 this afternoon and was reminded of a few things. First how radical the act of Jesus washing His disciple’s feet really was. He was the teacher, He was the rabbi, He was the one they were looking to as the leader, especially as they made their way into the final days of His earthly life. Perhaps at no other point in their journey with Jesus were they more in…

Let’s love each other – End Times Christian Article

By Elizabeth Prata I found this online. It’s a list that is sourced. Recently I’ve been a bit downcast by the in-fighting on social media. I guess after 24 years online going from BBS forums to CompuServe to commenting online newspapers to Disqus to blogs to Facebook to Twitter … I’m finally social media world-weary with the lack of grace and patience. Let’s love each other. The 59 ‘One Anothers’ of the New Testament 1. …Be at peace with each…

Engaging Kids about Pop-Culture | TheSource4YM – Youth Ministry Christian Article

A Netflix series becomes the newest show young people are binging.

I talked with a youth pastor recently who assertively told…

Life at the Speed of Relationships | Lifestream – Christian Article

No, that isn’t the new Lifestream plane, nor am I asking you to buy it for me. I got back last week from a delightful trip to the south. Spent the first weekend with a delightful family south of Atlanta.

It was fascinating…

3 Ways To Maximize Weekend Services In Your Ministry – Children’s Ministry Christian Article

As a big football fan, I love Fall when the NFL finally kicks off (go Chargers!).

The Idea That Faith is Caught and Not Taught is False…and It’s Hurting the Next Generation – Christian Article

As Christians, we have all kinds of pithy sayings that make their way through churches and establish themselves as generally accepted truths. Some end up on bumper stickers, some on wall decals, and some just get repeated so many times that people think they’re actually in the Bible. There’s a popular one among parents that I keep hearing lately, and each time I hear it I cringe. Not only is it false, but it’s particularly damaging to the discipleship of…

May a Service Be Held Outside of a Church? What Does One Need for That? – Christian Article

Church traditions require that a Divine Liturgy must be celebrated in a church on a designated and consecrated Holy Table or at least on an antimension (Greek, ‘instead of the table’) consecrated by an Orthodox bishop. Antimension is a special cloth with an image of the Lord’s Burial. It is placed on top of the Holy Table and is mandatory for celebration of a Liturgy. If, for a certain reason, the Liturgy has to be celebrated outside of a church,…

Brexit and Daniel’s Final Empire – End Times Christian Article

For several decades, Christians have speculated on whether or not the European Union is the final world empire outlined in the Bible.

Since World War II, prophecy watchers have paid careful attention to the slow and steady unification of western Europe. Along the way, the…

The Purpose of Our Trials – Christian Article

Read: 1 Peter 4:12-14 We shouldn’t expect the Christian life to be easy and comfortable, because believers aren’t exempt from trials. In fact, becoming a Christian may result in increased trouble and suffering. Peter refers to such hardship as a “fiery ordeal,” and tells us not to be surprised by it (1 Peter 4:12). God uses our suffering for His good purposes, and He walks through it with us. Hope in the midst of affliction is possible when we understand…
