Lisa-Miller

Last month, after more than ten years in hiding, Lisa Miller surrendered herself to American authorities at the U. S. Embassy in Managua, Nicaragua. Miller, now in custody at the federal detention center in Miami, faces kidnapping and conspiracy charges. She’ll likely be found guilty but, in reality, she’s a victim of bad ideas. She’s a mom, attempting to protect her daughter from her own bad choices and our society’s attempt to redefine marriage, parenting, and the family.

Reflections on the Cancel Culture

In this 3 Part series (so far at least) Dr. Tom Nettles, uses his over 40 years experience as a historical theologian to look at the current cultural trend of the “Cancel Culture.”  He does so from a Biblical and SBC point of view, I feel pointing out the unbiblical and dangerous path this is leading the Nation and many evangelical down. – Mike


 

There is One Lawgiver: Reflections on the Cancel Culture

There is One Lawgiver: Reflections on the Cancel Culture

The suggestion has been made that we should say farewell to Jonathan Edwards in light of his having purchased a slave named Venus. A serious call also has been issued to remove memorabilia of James P. Boyce and the three men who helped found the first Southern Baptist Seminary. Those suggestions prompted a line of thought about our aptitude to dismiss the value of brothers and sisters in Christ.

It is not very easy—in fact, it is not possible—to say “farewell” to any person in the history of the world. God has created them all and each will have an eternity immediately proceeding from God’s judgment—his perfectly impartial, absolutely just judgment in which every mouth will be stopped and the whole world held guilty before God (Romans 3:19, 23). Only those who by faith have been united with Jesus Christ in his perfect righteousness culminating in his propitiatory death will be granted, by grace, eternal life. The rest will depart into eternal torment with the devil and his angels. Seeing that an eternity awaits every person in which each will be a vessel of glory either of justice and wrath or justice and grace, we cannot wish them away. Seeing that in sin there is no difference, we cannot point to others and imply by our attempt to dismiss them, “I am better than they.”…

Is God / the Bible sexist?

Question: “Is God / the Bible sexist?”

Answer: Sexism is one gender, usually male, having dominance over the other gender, usually female. The Bible contains many references to women that, to our modern mindset, sound discriminatory towards women. But we have to remember that when the Bible describes an action, it does not necessarily mean that the Bible endorses that action. The Bible describes men treating women as little more than property, but that does not mean God approves of that action. The Bible is far more focused on reforming our souls than our societies. God knows that a changed heart will result in a changed behavior…

The future of Missions

The Future of Missions
A new report coming soon!

Next week, we’ll be releasing a new report called The Future of Missions, which looks closely at how younger generations view international mission work.

Today, we want to share three big findings with you for free.

DOWNLOAD AND SHARE THE FINDINGS

Over and above evangelism and discipleship, nearly half of churchgoing young adults—say they want missionaries “to save lives.”

Christians under 35 are almost twice as likely as older believers to judge that missionaries should never use donations as their source of income.

The blending of business and social good has become common, and even expected, especially among younger generations. Millennial Christians show significant enthusiasm for nontraditional missionary roles like entrepreneurs, artists, and business leaders.

And stay tuned next week for the full report, which includes:

•What young people value about missions and what they want to change
•10 ministry questions the Church must answer with the next generation
•Profiles of current missionaries in various parts of the world
•Perspectives from people connected to missions in different ways (parents, sending organizations, former missionaries)
•And much more!
 
Until then!

Editorial – Proud American

Recently I have seen a H U G E increase in the number of folks posting “I hate America” on social media.

Listen, no one claims this is utopia, then again anyone who thinks we can have that short of Heaven, is either delusional or doing copious amounts of drugs. Those of us who are old enough to have studied U.S. History, World History (NOT social studies) and lived through the age of communist nuclear threat; understand America is by and far the greatest Nation on earth. 

So to those who hate America, I have but two messages for you:

1) I will continue to pray for you 

2) I will help you pack (is China, Cuba Russia or Venezuela your preference?)

Of course there is a third option we can stop whining about the ills of America and start doing something CONSTRUCTIVE and not DESTRUCTIVE together to fix them. That of course is just one man’s opinion.

Tweeting Something Isn’t Necessarily Doing Something

JOHN STONESTREET WITH MARIA BAER

“You are not a social media handle. Don’t feel pressure to post and repost everything to show that you care. Advocate locally. Be incarnate.”

Last week, a pair of activists launched a social media campaign that quickly went from advocacy to unintentional irony. To show solidarity with African American victims of police brutality, the women encouraged Instagrammers, especially major corporations, to post a black square in lieu of a picture, in order to leave space on the platform for people of color.

As well-intentioned as Blackout Tuesday was, with people across the country continuing to express outrage over the police killing of George Floyd, it started to unravel nearly as fast as it caught on. Upon further reflection, it doesn’t make a whole lot of sense to ask people to post in order to show how they weren’t going to post.

Nor was it practical. So many individual and company Instagrammers posted black squares, that entire portions of the site went essentially blank. If the intent was, as described, to amplify black voices, a sea of black squares drowned them out instead…

Is Christian Unity Possible with So Much Disagreement?

JOHN STONESTREET

Last week, a listener who follows a lot of Christian podcasts, including BreakPoint, wrote us with the following question, troubled by the conflicting opinions among Christians. Here’s how she put it:

“In most cases the Christian proponents seem to have a genuine love for Jesus and are trying to live out their belief faithfully. Yet their conclusions and interpretation of the Scriptures are often diametrically opposed…If intelligent, well educated, sincere Christians can come to such different interpretations of Scripture, how can I possibly hope to come to a correct understanding of the Truth?”

Given the hurt, anger, and even violence on streets across America right now, not to mention all of our social media news feeds, I imagine this person isn’t the only one wondering about the unity that Christ prayed for in the Garden, as recorded in John 17. “All mine are yours,” Jesus prayed, “and yours are mine, and I am glorified in them. And I am no longer in the world, but they are in the world, and I am coming to you. Holy Father, keep them in your name, which you have given me, that they may be one, even as we are one.”
