Why I’m Nonetheless an Evangelical

Amy Medina: “The longer I live, the more I experience of life, the more I study this extraordinary book, the more it makes sense. The more it resonates with what I actually see in the world. That doesn’t mean that I don’t still have doubts. It doesn’t mean that I’m still not disturbed by some of what I read or see. But if this life is a jigsaw puzzle of disjointed and often contradictory pieces of information, the Bible has helped me to sort them out, lay them in lines, and fit them together. And the further I walk down this road, the more pieces snap into place.”

I Couldn’t Stay the Lie of My Sexuality

“Late one night when Linda was at a conference and my sons had gone to sleep, I started writing my letter, razor blades at the ready. ‘I’ve faked it as long as I can fake it, and I can no longer make it.’ I was in the middle of my final instructions for her when she walked in the door much earlier than expected, thwarting my plans.”

Was Jesus Tempted To Commit Homicide?

There are some good and necessary distinctions right here. “Jesus was ‘tempted in every way, just as we are, yet without sin’ (Hebrews 4:15). What an amazing truth. But what does it mean? Does it mean that he was tempted to do everything that any human has ever been tempted to do: murder, child abuse, genocide, and the rest? Most of us probably assume not. But why?”

four Classes from the Bible About Troublesome Folks

All of us should be taught to reside with some troublesome individuals, don’t we? “I should not really have been surprised. The Bible has a clear category for people like this. Proverbs 4:16 says that some people ‘cannot sleep unless they have done wrong; they are robbed of sleep unless they have made someone stumble.’ And it is actually one of God’s kindnesses to prepare us for such relationships. I have found many places in God’s Word which not only warn me of difficult people, but prepare be to face such challenges.”

A Letter to a Reader concerning the Battle in opposition to Sin

“Dear Reader, Regarding a Christian struggling in sin and a non-Christian in sin, I agree they can look similar in some ways. However, there is an important difference where the answer is contained within your own question. It’s the idea of struggle.”

Ready on God and Acknowledging His Goodness in Powerful Instances

Randy and Nanci Alcorn share a few of what they’ve been studying as they endure a troublesome time. “I have experienced His sovereignty, mercy, and steadfast love in tangible ways as I have been in this deep cave. He let me tell Him my fears and confess my lack of peace at what was happening and what might happen.”

One other Studying Expertise

There’s rather a lot to consider right here. “If you arrive at university this year and find yourself settled and growing in a good student church, then that will be fantastic. But before you do that, why not take a second look at some of the other churches a little further afield? You may be pleasantly surprised at what you find.”

Flashback: Have We Lastly Hit Peak Attractional?

I really feel sorry for the pastor who is aware of that to maintain his congregation, he has to maintain arising with larger and extra stunning concepts. He is aware of that as quickly because the enjoyable stops or the place down the road affords one thing higher, the seats will empty, the price range will decline, the church will collapse.

Lust makes actual ladies—sisters and daughters and moms who bear God’s picture—into flesh for consumption, pixels for pleasure. It’s a criminal offense in opposition to humanity and the God who lovingly created us. —Benjamin Vrbicek
