This is not a Christian video, but in explaining why covetous plans for Amazon founder Jeff Bezos’ wealth might well cause more harm than good, we see here another illustration of how God’s 10th Commandment is an example of not simply His righteousness, but also His love – obeying His Law is better for us.
Hirsi, a former Muslim who bravely spoke out about Islam, is now calling herself a Christian. However, if the reasons she gives in this essay are the total of her profession of faith (Christ warrants one mention, and repentance none) then she may not yet be, though we can hope and pray God will continue to move her.
Her profession does make a compelling practical case for Christianity. She is sharing that the world needs Christianity to be free.
“All we’re being asked to do is change one word. It’s a simple request. Just use a different pronoun. It might seem like a no-brainer for a believer to comply. Why cause unnecessary tension by refusing a request to be courteous?”
Alan Shlemon explains why it really matters.
When a fish gets trapped in a lightless cave, and its future progeny lose their eyes, creationists have noted that this was a loss of, and not a gain of, function. Or, in other words, this sort of “evolutionary evidence” didn’t prove evolution at all, since, at best, it might have indicated that a man could eventually devolve into a molecule but it gave no insight into how a molecule could ever evolve into a man.
Creationists are now testing whether even such a devolution might be the result of brilliant design. Could it be the result of a built-in ability to adapt to changed environmental circumstances? Creationists are setting out to answer that question… and the preliminary results are in.
YouTube “experts” often tout supposed advances in origin-of-life theory. But Intelligent Design proponent Dr. James Tour exposed that for the lie it is, challenging leading experts to show that they’ve solved any of five fundamental problems origin-of-life theory faces. And no one could.
Lots of technical language in this one, but to explain by way of analogy, if scientists claimed that evolution could build a rocket to the moon, Tour is willing to pretend that evolution has indeed built the rocket and then is asking evolutionists to explain only how their theory accounts for the refined rocket fuel. And the fact they can’t explain the origin of the smaller thing highlights how they certainly haven’t made any progress on the more fundamental issues.
Even with living things all around to offer examples and blueprints, and even with supercomputers to aid their theorizing, scientists still can’t offer even the basics of how life could have come about by unguided evolution. And let’s not forget that these same scientists still can’t create life on purpose, even with intelligence, blueprints, supercomputers, and refined chemicals.
Germany is one of the world’s leading wind power producers, and they are having troubles.
At the risk of belaboring the joke below, I’m going to harp on how it is funny because it is true. Christians are often attacked for the very things our attackers are doing to us. “You’re just trying to force your morals on everyone,” says the atheist trying to force his morals on us. So, when you are attacked, don’t get defensive. Recognize their attack for what it really is: an attempt to deflect from their own behavior. Point them back to God. Let them know that even if their accusations were true – even if we’re horrible hypocrites – our wickedness isn’t going to be any sort of defense for them before their Maker. The only “excuse” available to them is through turning to Jesus, and begging Him to cover their sins with His blood.
