Tough Question: Hasn't science shown that Christianity is wrong?

Christianity Explored | April 23rd 2015

Can we really appreciate modern science and be a Christian? Doesn’t one cancel out the other?

Here’s the surprising thing: there doesn’t have to be a full-blown battle between science and Christianity.

We need science—it gives us practical benefits that help us live well. We need science to help us know well—science begins to help us understand the cosmos.

But let me suggest that we also need Christianity to live well. Christianity is all about Jesus, who claimed to be the author of life. If that’s the case, then what he has to say about life is worth listening to.

How to start a Seeker Bible Study: Answers to 3 common questions

Becky Pippert | April 23rd 2015

Does this situation seem familiar? You have a non-Christian friend—and you’d love for them to hear the good news of Jesus. You’ve had some spiritual conversations. Maybe you’ve outlined the basics of the gospel. They sounded interested. But what now? What’s the next step?

Most unbelievers are not ready to receive Christ after hearing the gospel only once, nor are they usually ready to come with us to church. Yet even those who are turned off by the church are still curious about the person of Jesus. Jesus is so different from what skeptics assume he will be like. He is so radical, beautiful, unpredictable and irresistible. So the next step is inviting our friends to take a look at the real Jesus—straight from the pages of Scripture. The greatest shortcut in evangelism is allowing our friends to see the real Jesus!

Living Courageously and Confidently

David Helm | April 22nd 2015

How can we remain faithful to our God in a world that rejects him? Is it even worth standing firm and obeying him, when his kingdom often seems so very far away? How can we live courageously and confidently in nations that do not seek to live under God’s rule? And is it possible to be a blessing to our nations, and show the power and goodness of our God, even in a time such as ours?

Those are pressing questions for those of us who live in contexts where to be a Christian is no longer the norm (if it ever was) and is increasingly to be misunderstood, maligned and even mistreated. And since this is the context in which Daniel found himself, the book that bears his name is a book that will reassure, challenge and thrill us as we read it today.

Tough Question - If there is a God why does he allow suffering?

Christianity Explored | April 16th 2015

It’s a huge question, isn’t it? Hardly a day goes by when we don’t come across suffering. Devastation caused by earthquakes and tsunamis… millions living in poverty… children being abused… family breakdowns… bullying… people suffer. We suffer. So it’s right to say to God: “God, if you’re there, why don’t you do something about it?”
