I saw this on the Drudge Report. Expect to see the media inundated with articles about Google Glass in the days to come. This one asks, “what would you say if instead of it being Google Glass, it was Government Glass? A revolutionary way of improving public services, some may say. Call me a cynic, but I don't think it'd have much success.”
“False prophets were a constant problem in the Old Testament, and those who falsely claimed to be prophets of God were to be stoned. The people rarely had the will to deal with them, so they multiplied, causing disaster to the spiritual life of God’s people.” Of course false teachers live on in the New Testament. Here are 7 traits to watch for.
Here is a letter to the church that you may do well to read, written by someone who is a homosexual.
"To those of you who would change the church to accept the gay community and its lifestyle: you give us no hope at all."
I was personally confronted by this post. I'm still stroking my chin in a thoughtful way, but for now my thoughts are my own. This is from Megan Hill at Christianity Today‘s Her.meneutics blog on an issue more adoptive parents need to consider.
“In this digital age, information lasts forever, and adoptive parents are increasingly, permanently, and publicly telling stories that are not theirs to tell.”
A fascinating philosophical exchange between J. P. Moreland and Robert Lawrence Kuhn, host of the PBS show Closer to the Truth, who has a doctorate in brain science. The discussion goes pretty quickly and gets into some complex matters. If you want fuller teaching at a more introductory level, check out this video of Dr. Moreland teaching on these issues. He first covers the preliminary issues, then looks at the nature of consciousness, followed by the nature of the soul.
The Bible has said all along that we know all too well what we're doing. People attempt to deny the obvious, but the truth still peeks through the cracks of our self-deception. That the abortionists are finally being blunt about it is alarming.
"Williams argues that this unborn human life must be terminated if a woman desires an abortion. The child is a life, but, in her grotesque view, 'a life worth sacrificing.'"
In the long term, what publishers have to fear the most may not be Amazon but an idea it has helped engender—that the only truly necessary players in the game are the author and the reader.
As Baptists we herald from what has been referred to as the "Free Church" tradition. In other words, we believe that the church is a free and voluntary assembly of believers that is to be dictated or ruled over by no man besides Christ himself through His Word and His Spirit. Very few churches today, including so-called 'Baptist' churches, hold to this view presently. Which is why there must be a publishing house that can draw attention to these forgotten historical truths. Enter Free Church Press. The site is up, including the store. I pray that Free Church Press will eventually become a catalyst for keeping the light shining on the free church tradition. www.freechurchpress.net
