Atheists Don’t Put Their Money Where Their Mouth Is!

Christian Life Issues
Some atheists in London got bent out of shape because a Christian organization was putting scriptures on the side of buses... so they proposed that the atheists decided to request finds for an "alternate message" that would have been posted on the bus.  But they fell FAR short of the amount of contributions needed to put the signs on the buses!  So there you go!  I guess believing in nothing means that you don't believe enough to say what you don't believe! Atheists fail to cough up for London bus ad "They even made a mock-up photo of a bus carrying their chosen message: 'There's probably no God. Now stop worrying and get on with your life.' The project attracted huge attention on atheist message boards and was even featured…

What If Some Don’t Believe?

Christian Life Issues
"For what if some did not believe? shall their unbelief make the faith of God without effect? God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged." (Romans 3:2-3, emphasis mine.) There are many that denigrate the message of faith from God's Word. They call teachers of faith heretics, and say that we are teaching "name it and claim it" and "blab it and grab" messages. My pastor, Ed Taylor, once was confronted by a local minister that said, "All you Faith Preachers (saying it disdainfully) I just call "faith peddlers!" Well, my friend, if you aren't "peddling faith," what, may I ask, are you peddling? Are we to…

The Pope Says That We Can Evangelise… Don’t You Feel Better?

Christian Life Issues
I don't mean to sound quite so "tongue-in-cheek" with my heading there... but, really!  It is a sad commentary that the Pope feels it is even necessary to affirm the Christian's mandate to preach the Gospel and see people convert from false religions to Christianity.  I will not go into how scripturally accurate Catholic teaching is here, that is not my point in this article, what I am concerned about is that Christians have come so far from courage in our convictions and faith in the true Word of God, that it is news to hear someone affirm the need to evangelize! Pope Affirms Right to Convert Non-Believers to Christianity Jesus was very plain when He said: Mark 16:15  And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world,…

Liberal Churches Slow to Adopt Tech

Christian Life Issues
The churches that describe themselves as having "liberal theology" (which you can read as un-scriptural theology) are less likely to use new technologies to preach. I suspect that is because they really don't have anything worth reaching anyone with... why spend money to use high tech, if you are preaching poverty, lack, and sickness anyway? Study: Churches Slow to Adopt New Technology "New research shows that a majority of churches use some type of emerging technology in their services, but the pace of technology adoption has slowed in recent years. Although 65 percent of Protestant churches now have a large screen projection system, that number is just slightly higher than in 2005 when 62 percent had such a system, according to The Barna Group. The use of large screens had…

Chuck Colson Counters Some of the Myths Around the Movie, “Expelled!”

Christian Life Issues
A controversial movie gets a lot of guff from many different corners... and "Expelled!" is no exception. In this article in the Christian Post, he reveals the truth about the mis-information: Myths about 'Expelled' "If you have heard of the new documentary Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed, opening April 18, chances are you have heard all kinds of distortions and myths about it. So let me set the record straight about some of the most common myths. Myth #1: Darwinists interviewed for this film were tricked into participating. Not so. Each scientist interviewed for Expelled, on both sides of the evolution debate, knew who would do the interview and what it was for. Each of them signed a release, allowing the producers to use the footage of their interviews. Myth #2:…

Second Narnia Movie on the Horizon!

Christian Life Issues
I warn you about bad movies, so it is only fair that I recommend one once in a while. I loved the Chronicles of Narnia... and I am looking forward to the next installment with the story of Price Caspian. Check out the story here: Return to Narnia "In about a month, Hollywood will bring the second book of C. S. Lewis’s Chronicles of Narnia to the silver screen. And whether you are a parent introducing your kids to Narnia for the first time, or looking for an excuse to recapture the magical wonder of your own childhood, it is a good time to dust off a copy of Prince Caspian. While you will not find the spiritual lessons in Prince Caspian quite as obvious as those you remember from…

Obama May Believe There Are Many Ways to God… But What Does the Bible Teach?

Christian Life Issues
John 14:6, "Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." Let's think a moment about what JESUS said here. "...No man cometh unto the Father, but by Me." Another way to state that is... "No one can come to God... EXCEPT THROUGH ME!" This puts a lie to the notion that "there are many ways to God." I didn't say that. Jesus said that. Take it up with Him, if you dare! I wouldn't, if I were you. Jesus knows what He is talking about... if anyone knows He does! Bottom line is... from a national perspective, you CAN believe ANYTHING that you want to. But, from God's perspective, you MUST believe certain things. For instance,…

A Muslim Film About Jesus… Gets Nearly Everything Wrong!

Christian Life Issues
Not that you wouldn't expect that... but, needless-to-say the "theology" of this film is highly skewed! The Bible is very clear about the circumstances of Jesus' birth, life on earth, death, burial, and resurrection... but a new Muslim created film about Jesus re-writes the Biblical account. Muslim's Cross-Less Jesus Film Draws Mixed Reactions "A new film on Jesus, told from an Islamic perspective, has drawn mixed reactions from the Christian community over its claim that Jesus did not die on the cross but was replaced by Judas Iscariot. 'The Messiah' – written, produced and directed by Iranian filmmaker Nader Talebzadeh - was filmed in the Islamic Republic of Iran with Iranian actors to portray how Muslims understand the life of Jesus based on the teachings of the Qur’an and the…

Happy Resurrection Day!

Christian Life Issues
Today we celebrate Jesus' literal resurrection bodily from the dead. He did not "swoon" on the cross (in other words, not really die.) He was not replaced by Judas (as the Muslims teach,) His body wasn't stolen by His disciples... no, Jesus was supernaturally raised from the dead! He now lives eternally at the right hand of the Father God, making intercession for us! (Romans 8:34) You may say, "Aw come on, Dr. Bill! You don't REALLY believe that do you?" If I didn't, I wouldn't be a Christian! Check out these scriptures: Romans 10:8 "But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach;" Romans 10:9 "That if thou shalt confess with thy…
