There are some things the Bible calls "sin" that almost everyone agrees are wrong. Hardly anybody in his or her right mind would look at adultery, rape, or murder (at least of a post-womb person) and say, "I mean, I really don't see anything wrong with it." No! The corporate human conscience sees atrocities such as these and calls them what they are: evil.
And then there are some things the Bible calls "sin" that are constantly debated. One that has been a hot topic of conversation over the last few years is same-sex behavior and relationships.
In a time not too distant, most Westerners viewed all forms of homosexual expression as vile. But today, the pendulum of cultural thought has swung all the way to the other side. Most people — including many church-going people — don't see anything wrong with two people of the same gender expressing romantic love for one another in the context of a monogamous, committed relationship. more >>
Christians should never feel as though they are not "good enough" for God, because God is looking for imperfect people to follow His path, motivational speaker and author Jefferson Bethke says in his latest YouTube video.
Bethke, who is known for publishing inspiring, popular YouTube videos about the Christian faith, discusses the feeling of imperfection and unworthiness in his latest video, Are You Too Messed Up For Jesus?, which has received over 16,000 hits since being posted to YouTube on Monday.
In the video, Bethke suggests many Christian feel they are not worthy to stand in front of God, saying that "so many times we think we're not good enough, we're not clean enough, we feel this shame, and because of all that, we then think we can't approach God." more >>
In a revealing interview aired on CNN Wednesday, one of the network's most notable anchor's, Don Lemon, surprisingly revealed that megachurch pastor Bishop T.D. Jakes of The Potter's House in Dallas, Texas, played a huge role in his success as a journalist.
"It might sound strange, maybe even impossible, but the person who changed my life is someone I'd never even met. Through the power of his voice and his message, Bishop T.D. Jakes pulled me out of a crisis more than a decade ago and I wouldn't be where I am today if I hadn't heard his words," Lemon said during the interview.
Lemon then called Jakes "the voice in my head" and told the inspiring pastor that he listens to his messages a lot. It was a confession that surprised Jakes. more >>
For two-hundred-plus years, Western culture (especially America) has been shaped by the Judeo-Christian worldview. Not all citizens of the West were orthodox Christians nor were Western nation-states theocracies. Yet, the contours of the social and intellectual life of Western culture were largely moralistic and spiritual.
In the last one hundred years things have changed. The West is largely secular and at times anti-religion, especially anti-Judeo-Christian. How did this happen? The process is interesting and revealing.
To explain, let me borrow from Canadian philosopher Charles Taylor and his magisterial work, A Secular Age. more >>
