Here are some topics that deserve a few comments
Anne Graham Lotz has suggested there might be a deep significance attached to her battle against breast cancer, as it could be a warning sign that Israel is in danger of suffering a fatal attack.
Some people really think highly of themselves. It would be nice if prominent Christian leaders & speakers would stick to promoting Christ and stop making everything about them. Let’s not embarrass Christ, the Church or the faith with these comments.
I have learned that there is one word that shouldn’t be used in modern Christianity. If I use it now, I’m taking a risk that you won’t even finish reading this article. It’s a turnoff for so many Christians, even though it’s the very reason the Church exists.
It’s the word “evangelism.” That’s the “dirty” word. It’s because of its connotations that I don’t even call myself an evangelist.
It is not that the terms ‘evangelist’ or ‘evangelism’ are dirty words. It is that they and the act of evangelism are moved to idol levels and elevated above other commands and instructions by God. Evangelism is given a faulty priority over teaching the truth, having solid believers and more. Evangelism has its place but it is not more important than living the Christian life correctly.
Hundreds of sexual abuse allegations have been found in Independent Fundamental Baptist churches spanning 40 states and Canada, according to a new report.
The Fort Worth Star-Telegram released an extensive, eight-month investigative report Sunday recounting the stories of women who were victims of sexual misconduct, including molestation and rape when they were minors, in IFB churches.
This is always sad news to hear but we would like to know how they define sexual abuse, what kind of stories they are accepting and how much evidence supports each allegation. The Bible does not instruct us to believe the victim only. It tells us that we have to find the truth, go with the truth and have supporting evidence.
We also would like to hear their definition of the term abuse and how distorted that definition has become. The wild accusations thrown about only make us more skeptical. Accusation does not equal guilt.
Thousands of brides are being burned alive in India despite the practice being illegal, a Christian ministry has warned.
India Partners, a Christian organization that works alonside indigenous Christian grassroots agencies in India, told Mission Network News on Thursday that there are still as many as 8,000 bride burning cases a year in the Hindu-majority country.
These are just a few of the real victims that are deprived of honest help due to the false claims made by others in different parts of the world. Greed is a deadly sin costing innocent people their lives. But it doesn’t just happen to the unbelievers of the world. There are many people claiming to be believers driven by greed to reach their objectives.
Also, greed may not be limited to just money. Awareness is only the first step in helping someone in need. Believers need to roll up their sleeves and get involved to bring others to safety and to the gospel. Believe it or not, evangelism is tied to social activities and giving a gospel message is not always the first thing a believer must do to win someone to Christ.
Believers in Jesus Christ “have more evidence than they need” to intellectually defend the claims of Christianity, says noted apologist and Liberty University professor Gary Habermas.
Habermas, a New Testament scholar who chairs Liberty’s Department of Philosophy, noted in a recent interview that he believes Christians “often crawl into a cubby hole and are embarrassed of being called out” or told that they “don’t have any evidence.”
It is a good article to read.
