Creationist Ken Ham has spoken out against a video by the Discovery Channel that speculates about how the Earth might be destroyed if it's one day hit by a giant asteroid, and suggestes that unbelievers should be afraid of Jesus Christ's judgment instead.
"Those of us who have trusted in Christ as Savior have no fear of this coming judgment because our penalty for sin has already been paid by Jesus," Ham wrote in his Answers in Genesis blog.
"But instead of fearing some hypothetical asteroid apocalypse, those who refuse to acknowledge Christ as Lord should fear this coming judgment, and it should bring them to repent and put their faith in Christ." more >>
Today's question is: "Is sex a human right?"
I think it's really important to clearly state what we mean when we say "human right." So many arguments dividing both the church and the culture are rooted in miscommunication and careless use of language. And this could be easily avoided if we'd just make sure that the things people hear us say are the things we are actually saying. more >>
I'm all for generous giving, and I'm all for taking care of ministers of the gospel, but I will not be sending Creflo Dollar $300 to help him buy a $65 million jet for his ministry. The very thought of it is obscene.
On a manipulative video now removed from his website, the narrator explains how Pastor Dollar's ministry is touching people worldwide and how the old private jet they've been using for years has become unusable, also explaining how it is actually dangerous to fly.
Now, we are told, in order to travel around the world, he needs a new jet, and not just any yet. It is a top of the line jet that is being coveted by billionaires who are on a waiting list to purchase one. more >>
The new CNN documentary series, "Finding Jesus: Faith Fact Forgery," has brought many common Christian beliefs into question, including the earthly family of Jesus Christ.
In an interview with CNN, Fr. James Martin, a Jesuit priest who's featured in the documentary, comments on a 2002 archaeological find that's said to be a 2,000 year old ossuary, or bone box that includes an Aramaic inscription that reads: "James, son of Joseph, brother of Jesus."
This artifact, which could be archaeological proof of Jesus' existence, relates to the debate between some Catholics and Protestants over whether Mary gave birth to other children besides Jesus. While Catholic theology teaches that Jesus was Mary's only child, other Christian denominations believe that she also gave birth to a son named James. more >>
Former atheist-turned-Christian Lee Strobel, a professor of Christian Thought at Houston Baptist University, explores the infinite power of God's grace and the impact it has on Christians' lives in his new book, The Case for Grace.

He explains that his previous works laid the foundation for his latest book, The Case for Grace more >>
Last week I sent out an email to my blog subscribers asking them to send me their top questions about sexuality and the Christian faith. I've picked out the 7 most common questions I received and I'm going to answer one per day over the next 7 days resulting in an 7-part series.
Part 1, "Can Someone Be In a Homosexual Relationship and Still Be a Believer?" can be viewed here.
Today's question is: Why does the world say that an unchosen sexual disposition isn't changeable, but an unchosen gender is? more >>
