For Christians to transform the culture, they must have "hard heads" and "soft hearts," according to twin brothers David and Jason Benham.
In a video posted on their Facebook page on Tuesday, the Benham brothers spoke about how "courageous transformers confront culture."
"If we as faithful Christians are going to connect properly with culture, we've got to do it with a hard head and a soft heart," said David. "A hard head toward principle, yet with a soft heart toward people." more >>
A team of scholars is translating the work of a 16th century British theologian from old English into modern vernacular in order to spearhead an intellectual renewal in the contemporary reformed and evangelical Protestant Church.
In just over a year from now, Protestant Christians will mark the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, when Martin Luther famously nailed his 95 theses to a church door in Wittenberg, Germany. But according to Brad Littlejohn, founder and president of the Davenant Trust, many Protestants today lack a historical and theologically robust understanding for why they are Protestant and the intellectual resources for engaging public affairs.
To address this disheartening phenomenon, Littlejohn and his colleagues have just released the book, Radicalism: When Reform Becomes Revolution, their modern English version of the preface of Richard Hooker's The Laws of Ecclesiastical Polity. more >>

The Ark Encounter President Ken Ham has revealed that the life-sized Noah's Ark is on track to reach 1.4 million visitors, and said that the theme park and evangelist Ray Comfort's recently premiered "The Atheist Delusion" film share a common mission.
The Kentucky-based Ark Encounter hosted the premiere of Comfort's film last weekend, and Ham revealed in a blog post on his Answers in Genesis website that he introduced the documentary with a discussion about the Ark.
"In many ways we built the Ark for the same reason that Ray and his team made 'The Atheist Delusion': to teach apologetics to people who don't know how to defend the Word of God and to share the Gospel with skeptics and unbelievers," Ham wrote. more >>
