Evidence the Resurrection of Jesus Christ

Is the resurrection of Jesus Christ a historical event that really happened, or is it only a myth, as many atheists claim? While no one witnessed the actual resurrection, many people swore they saw the risen Christ after his death, and their lives were never the same. Archaeological discoveries continue to support the Bible's historical accuracy. We tend to forget that the Gospels and book of Acts are eyewitness accounts of the life and death of Jesus. Further nonbiblical evidence for Jesus' existence comes from the writings of Flavius Josephus, Cornelius Tacitus, Lucian of Samosata, and the Jewish Sanhedrin. The...

FUN WAYS FOR YOU TO INSTILL VIRTUES IN YOUR CHILDREN

COURTNEY DEFEO Roleplay kindness As much as I love to share my heart with my kids, I’ve learned they mostly want to be heard. So at dinner, I ask questions — the more, the better — and I mix in silly questions with real ones. Sometimes the person responding will use a fake microphone or speak with an accent, which adds to the laughter. I ask questions like: - What would you do if you noticed a friend being bullied on the playground? - Would you rather eat a rotten egg or burned brussels sprouts? - What would you do if a friend kept talking...

What Christians Get Wrong about Marriage

Debra Fileta 1- We don't fully commit to the selflessness that marriage involves. I know I’m not the first person who has experienced this reality check. I’ve never been faced with more internal selfishness than I’ve experienced within the context of my marriage. It’s easy to give up on marriage when we see it as a place to come and be served, loved, and wanted, rather than a place of giving service, of serving, and laying down of rights. May God continue shifting our perspective of what it means to give of ourselves. 2- We don't take personal responsibility: who we are...

?What Does It Mean to Seek the Lord

John Piper Seeking the Lord means seeking his presence. “Presence” is a common translation of the Hebrew word “face.” Literally, we are to seek his “face.” But this is the Hebraic way of having access to God. To be before his face is to be in his presence. What It Means to Seek This happens through “seeking.” Continual seeking. But what does that mean practically? Both the Old and New Testaments say it is a “setting of the mind and heart” on God. It is the conscious fixing or focusing of our mind’s attention and our heart’s affection on God. Now set...

?Did Jesus commit suicide

Matt Slick Did Jesus commit suicide? No, He did not desire to die and intentionally perform an action upon Himself that caused His death. He did not nail Himself to a cross. Nevertheless, some say that He willingly went to the cross, and by not stopping what would happen, He died, and this is suicide. Is this a good argument? No, it isn’t. To show why it isn’t, we need first to define the word ‘suicide.’did jesus commit suicide Suicide: “the act of killing yourself intentionally.” (https://dictionary.cambridge.org/us/dictionary/english/suicide) Suicide: “the act or an instance of taking one’s own life voluntarily and intentionally” (https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/suicide) Suicide:...

How to Help Kids Find Their Identity

Catherine Parks The Joy of Limited Options Children are now given so many options by which to define themselves, and they’re invited to change those things whenever they feel like it. These options go beyond what kinds of food and music they like and reach instead into the deepest parts of their identities, including aspects like gender and sexuality. This might feel like freedom, but rising levels of anxiety and depression among kids seem to tell a different story. We’re tempted to think that having many options is a good thing. But if you’ve ever been to a Cheesecake Factory restaurant, you know that...

How to Stay Out of the Doghouse and in Love with Your Wife

Trust Her (Proverbs 31:11-12) promises much gain for the husband when he trusts his wife with his heart. This gain in life does not last a day or even a year, but a lifetime. Trust issues thwart any relationship, but especially the intimacy of a marriage. If she is out to dinner with her friends, do not call or text her incessantly. Further, if she leaves her phone on the kitchen table, do not use the passcode she entrusted you with for the purpose of checking her call history or text messages. Love Her Emotionally In (Ephesians 5:25) the husband is to love his wife “just as...

?What Does the Bible Say about Your Worth

Jennifer Waddle You Were Created with Great Worth The Biblical view of self-worth is not only freeing; it is encouraging for everyone who has struggled with self-esteem. In our search for value, we begin with the Scriptures that say, “Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. How precious to me are your thoughts, God! How vast is the sum of them!” (Psalm 139:16-17) God oversaw every stage of your development and ordained your days before you even took your first breath! Think about that for...

4Calming Ways to Support Your Anxious Spouse

Heidi Vegh 1. Pray WITH and FOR Them In the Bible, we learn that we have an enemy who wants to steal our joy and fill us with fear. The most important thing we can do for our spouses is praying with them and for them, rebuking the attacks of the enemy. We read in (John 10:10) "The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life and have it to the full." We have the power of Jesus, who equips us to combat the enemy with prayer and speaking out truths from the Word. Although spiritual...

?How Should You Respond to Evil

Beth Ann Baus If you live on this earth you can be sure of one thing: you will witness evil. We should expect it and be prepared to react. How then, should we respond to evil? Hate It (Romans 12:9) tells us “Let love be genuine. Abhor what is evil; hold fast to what is good.” This may seem obvious, but our culture has turned evil into entertainment. We pay money to see evil unfold on the big screen. We etch out time to sit in our own homes and watch evil prevail on television. Because of this, we often find ourselves...
