People wear their “religion” in different ways. Some may be deeply devout daily while others only pray in times of great desperation. Some seek to eliminate humanity’s wrongs while others seek to prove humanity itself wrong. Look at these 19 types of Christians and see if you fit or break the mold.
I came across the following image on Facebook. I’m not sure who originally created it but I just love it. The image entitled “Do You Seriously Think God Can’t Use You?” is a simple reminder that God can use anybody… including you and me. Never let the enemy tell you otherwise!
Recently I had one of those strange moments. I had seen something that made me think that it was not something that I would do. What it was isn’t important. What is important is that the reason I felt that I wouldn’t do the same was because it wasn’t a very “Christian” thing to do.
I thought this would be a good time to go back into the recesses of history and bring up a topic that was taught in my church quite a number of years ago, now. That is, as the title of this post suggests, guilt and shame.
Many people who fall away from the Church have a number of reasons for doing so. While a number of the more outspoken of them tend to claim that they left the Church due to intellectual reasons. However, it seems that when one hears their “un-testimony” it becomes clear that they are more likely emotional reasons.
For some time now, there have been many responses to the concept of what is known as the “Problem of Evil.” Sometimes this is also called the “Problem of Pain” or the “Problem of Suffering.” It is an argument offered to challenge the idea that there exists a God who is all powerful and simultaneously all loving.
Last week, I brought up a story about going to far about keeping church and state separated. As if on queue, I just ran across another article that brings up the problem in precisely the opposite direction.
Last week, I wrote a post on my blog with my feedback of a debate I heard on Apologetics315 between Matt Slick of CARM and Dan Barker. The debate topic was “Is There Reason to be Good Without God?” I won’t repeat my comments here, but you can read the entire post if you like.
One thing that one commonly hears about Christianity is that once a person accepts Christ, they begin to experience a lot more trouble. You might think that I’m going to go into people’s impression that accepting Christ meant that life would be easy, but that’s not where I’m going with this.
For the past few weeks, we’ve been looking at a passage of scripture from John 4. The story is about Jesus’ interaction with the Samaritan woman at the well. Today, I’d like to continue with that story and take a look at what happened after the woman left Jesus and the disciples and went back to her town.
