Contend without being contentious

Here is something I read on Facebook.

Contend without being contentious

by Joshua Agan

“What doth it profit thee to enter into deep discussion concerning the Holy Trinity, if thou lack humility, and be thus displeasing to the Trinity? For verily it is not deep words that make a man holy and upright; it is a good life which maketh a man dear to God. I had rather feel contrition than be skillful in the definition thereof. If thou knewest the whole Bible, and the sayings of all the philosophers, what should all this profit thee without the love and grace of God? Vanity of vanities, all is vanity, save to love God, and Him only to serve. That is the highest wisdom, to cast the world behind us, and to reach forward to the heavenly kingdom.”
—Thomas à Kempis

Translation:
If you are contentious over theology, then you are displeasing the very God you feign to defend and exalt with your intellect. That is vanity. Only to walk by faith in every word that proceeds from God—that is the duty of man.

Note:
There is a difference between “contending for the faith” and being “contentious about the faith.” There is room for rebuking false doctrine or even discussing differences of interpretation, but contention is not the same thing.

Responding to the pandemic

by Levi Smith

They make churches shut down, but allow casinos and drive-thru strip clubs to stay open.

They tell Christians they can’t have in-home Bible studies, but they allow thousands to protest. Read the rest of this entry

Depression

Depression

by Joshua Arnold

Depression is still something a Christian may sink into and suffer from. We are not freed from the possibility of it, as our souls are still wrapped in this corrupted flesh, and so we must be equipped to deal with it if we happen to ever find ourselves suffering in this way.

Foundation for marriage

by Zach Whitsel

I get frustrated with how sex is portrayed in culture around me. The world acts like good sex exists only at the beginning of a relationship. Watch a chick flick or read a romance novel or listen to a spicy love song and you’ll find that 99% of that material revolves around two people who haven’t known each other very long. Anyone who only met two months ago can have memorable sex. They can also find out later that they hate each other. Read the rest of this entry

True Christianity

Here is something I read on Facebook.

True Christianity

by Joshua Arnold

Christianity is more than being right. It’s more than having correct doctrine. In addition to having correct doctrine, there should be a warmth that radiates from the heart of the Christian. And that warmth that radiates from the Christian is something that can be felt and experienced by the people that interact with them. Read the rest of this entry

Loving others

Here is something I read on Facebook.

Loving others

by Diana

We add to the worlds chaos and division when we behave like we are easily offended and full of judgement. Christ calls us to carry an unjust cross the same way He did. We can show mercy, love and grace because God has shown us mercy, love and grace. We are set apart as children of the light, in this way, that we can handle persecution and offence and be humble rather than proud. Read the rest of this entry

Pastors

by Levi Smith

I’d like to talk to you as a former pastor’s kid who currently works full time on a pastoral staff. Put your helmet on.

My dad was my pastor for 18 years. Growing up with your father being your church’s pastor gave me a unique vantage point. It wasn’t a superior vantage point, but it definitely gave me a glimpse into ministry life that I now I am exceedingly grateful for. Read the rest of this entry

Margaret Sanger

Margaret Sanger

by Ken Ham

So who made these statements? “The most merciful thing that the large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it”; “Birth Control does not mean contraception indiscriminately practised (sic). It means the release and cultivation of the better elements in our society, and the gradual suppression, elimination and eventual extinction, of defective stocks—those human weeds which threaten the blooming of the finest flowers of American civilization.” Read the rest of this entry

Home schooling

Home schooling

by Michael Farris

A word to my fellow homeschoolers: We need to be welcoming

In 1982, Vickie and I started homeschooling. We had been previously convicted that we should give our children a Christian education. But when we heard about homeschooling, we thought that it might be an even better way to give our children a good education that was spiritually focused and academically sound.

Attacks on the family

Darwin and racism

Here is something I read on Facebook.

Darwin and racism

by Ken Ham

I’ve been saying this in posts and presentations for a long time. I agree with this author that, “Even by the most generous of measures, the intellectual and philosophical heritage of Charles Darwin is one of the most hideously racist legacies one can fathom. And yet, his inherently racist dogma is not only presented in public schools across America, it is state and federal policy that every student in America demonstrate proficiency in understanding and applying his dangerous ideology.” Read the rest of this entry

Broken people

Here is something I read on Facebook.

Broken people

by Joshua Arnold

We are fallen people, and there is a lot of brokenness in us that the world can do nothing about and nothing with. There are things that are broken about each person that are of no advantage to a person in the world. The world will turn you away and shun you if certain things are off about you. You’ll become a throw-away in the world’s eyes, a misfit, an outcast, an example of what not to be like, all because they don’t know what to do with a brokenness like yours.

Living under grace

Living under grace

by Diana

We live under the law of grace, but we have sin defined so that we have loving boundaries in place. There is freedom in boundaries that help us uphold healthy standards. Healthy standards help for healthy individuals, families and societies. Read the rest of this entry

I can’t breathe

I can’t breathe

by Jeannene Rutherford

(Original by Martin Towne)
What a breathtaking few months this has been… Some caught the virus, “I can’t breathe;” Most were ordered to stay cooped up at home, “I can’t breathe;” Many were compelled to wear a mask, “I can’t breathe;” a few were restrained by chokeholds, “I can’t breathe;” Some were tear-gassed and smoke bombed, “I can’t breathe;” and the list goes on… It doesn’t take a rocket surgeon to figure out that the attack is on the breath.

Premature judgment

by Emily Thomes

We now have the evidence to say with confidence that #ahmaudarbery was killed by a racist man. His death is no more tragic, but the sin of his killer is even greater. I am praying for justice and comfort for his loved ones and repentance for the murderers. Read the rest of this entry

God has ordained government

by  Ken Ham

Some recent news items reported on politicians holding and even reading from the Bible. Well, all politicians (including governors and mayors) need to read and understand the following: “For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God” (Romans 13:1).

Anti-racists

by Nathan Finn

I was raised to not be a racist. My parents did not tolerate racial slurs, they encouraged my brother and I to have friends who didn’t look like us, and we were taught that slavery and Jim Crow were evil and that the mid-20th-century Civil Rights Movement resulted in needed changes in American society. What my parents taught us was reinforced at our church. I’m thankful I was raised that way. Read the rest of this entry
