Is God Real? The Case from the Transcendent Laws of Logic – Christian Article

My criminal cases are largely circumstantial in nature. I seldom have eyewitnesses who can identify the suspect directly or tell me exactly how the killer committed the crime. Instead, I have to carefully build cumulative, circumstantial cases on the foundation of many interconnected pieces of indirect evidence. This is not unusual; the vast majority of criminal cases tried around the country are circumstantial. In cases such as these, the strength of the prosecutorial argument is found in the collection of…

How to Conquer the Fear of Man – Christian Article

From as far back as I can remember, I have struggled with the fear of man. I had a great Dad, but when it came to baseball, I just could never be as good as he had been. He’d been a catcher and had even tried out for a major league team. So I became the catcher on our little league team (plus no one else wanted to do it). But I was a lousy catcher. I didn’t have a…

Can You Lose Your Salvation? – Escape to Reality – Christian Article

Can you lose your salvation and become unsaved? When I first began writing about the gospel of grace this was a subject few people spoke about. It was too contentious, too uncertain, too hard. So one summer I set out to read every single scripture on the subject. Turns out there are about 300. About half of them say you can’t lose your salvation, while the other half seem to suggest you can. At first glance, these two groups of…

You are here: Home » Dr. Valerie Tarico , Feature » You’ve Been Hacked – The Psychology of Disinformation and How to Protect Yourself 1/17/2019 | Share this article: By Valerie Tarico ~ Once seeded, viral misinformation exploits weaknesses in how the human mind determines what’s real. Most people genuinely care about truth. I don’t mean that we tell the truth all of the time—though most of us mostly do—but that we very much want to know what is real.…

At Crisis’ Ground Zero, A Muted March – Christian Article

In a normal year, these days would see the Stateside church storm the nation’s capital with bells on to carry out American Catholicism’s most prominent act of advocacy in the public square. For the millionth time, however, these days are anything but normal. That tomorrow’s March for Life was destined to unfold in the epicenter of this season of scandal was always bound to make for a tricky confluence. And that was before the last week turned Washington’s Catholic scene…

Our Conservative Christian Home was the Epicenter of Corruption of Minors

Although Tim Challies and I are quite far apart doctrinally, as a fellow-Canadian blogger I feel obliged to periodically checking in to sample his recent writing. He often writes about the impact of pornography, so I was interested in an article titled Has Your Child Been Looking At Bad Stuff Online? Two paragraphs caught my attention: …I think this is behavior we have modeled to our children in that we’ve taught our children when you have questions, you ask the…

Jesus: Our Intimate Friend | Devotional by Charles Stanley – Christian Article

Read: Matthew 26:47-50 I’ve counselled plenty of people who argue that they are not worthy of God’s love. Of all the passages I could point to that describe the Lord’s devotion, today’s is the one I think best showcases the unqualified friendship He offers His followers—even when they become wayward. The night before His crucifixion, Jesus was praying at Gethsemane when Judas Iscariot approached with a band of men. The betrayer stepped forward and kissed the Lord. And what was…

The Pride Roadblock – Dr. Dobson’s Married Couples Devotional – Christian Article

The Pride Roadblock “I hate pride and arrogance.”   Proverbs 8:13 In the middle of your highway to forgiveness there may be a giant roadblock called pride. You know in your heart that you offended your wife with that comment about her body, or her intelligence, or her family. You realize you hurt your husband with that remark about his selfishness or his waste of money. But something is keeping you from admitting wrong and seeking forgiveness. Even though…

Great Video on Acts by Joshua Jipp – Christian Article

Peace with our community — More Precious – Christian Article

//pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/js/adsbygoogle.js (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push(); In 1914, World War 1 was being fought as Christmas Eve settled upon the battlefield. The divide between the opposing forces was known as No Man’s Land, the sliver of space between opposing trenches. No one would want to venture on to No Man’s Land as enemy fire would ensue, and life would be at grim risk. Yet, this is where the Christmas truce took place. Peace broke out. Hands were stretched out and shaken readily…
