Have you ever wondered why modern Christians go to church on Sunday instead of Saturday, like Jesus did? What would Jesus do today? The following infographic from SabbathTruth.com examines intriguing Bible passages and Sabbath history to answer this questions as well as others. It’s purpose is to get us thinking more deeply about a Bible subject that many might just be taking for granted.
Most of us know the story of The Passover from the epic film, The Ten Commandments. This Jewish holiday is a remembrance of the Exodus from slavery in Ancient Egypt. Jewish families eat a special meal called a Seder that is full of symbolic foods.
I have one on my Android phone as do many Christians I know. How about you? This infographic provides some amazing statistics on how many people are using the YouVersion mobile Bible.
As a Christian, you might expect me to say that I believe that the Bible is the greatest book in the history of the world. The doctrines taught in the Bible have, arguably, led to more philanthropy, selfless action and other beneficial things such as schools, hospitals, etc. than any other book, religion, worldview or ideal.
Once again, we are coming up on the time of year when we celebrate one of the greatest events in the history of…well…history. It’s a celebration of the incarnation, when the divine took on human form and lived among His creation.
One of the “internal” debates these days within the Church is regarding the days of creation. There are basically two camps on this issue.

On the other side, there are the “Young Earth Creationists” who believe that the Earth is fewer than 10,000 years old.
It’s not a new thing to point out the flaws of Christians and use that as an argument against the veracity of the Christian faith. Many things have been written on this subject and today I’ve been thinking about something along these lines that I have not yet read anywhere else.
There are so many interesting (and often humorous) ways non-believers attack Christianity. From moral arguments against Christianity (yeah, right!) to the Problem of Evil to the so-called Euthyphro Dilemma and so on.
I am always fascinated at how spirited discussions can get when people try to discuss science and theology at the same time. Mainly, the way this happens is that one person is talking about science and the other is talking about theology. When this happens, it’s quite difficult to come to a conclusion together, never mind how frustrating it can be.
Last week, I started discussing some of the issues of the Church with respect to how they approach and/or address sin.

It is connected to the whole idea of Christianity and drives people away from Christ.
