Religions Are Products of Culture and Geography, Not Truth. Here is Brett Kunkle’s really good answer to that objection.
How Do You Know If You’re Repentant. “Here are 12 signs we have a genuinely repentant heart…”
Don’t Be Too Quick to Look for Fruit in New Believers Lives. “When we believe in Jesus we have eternal life. We can’t lose this life. But this grace of God in believers often seems to be little more than a spark. Sometimes it takes a long time for Jesus to fan it to a full flame. And as Richard Sibbes says, that small “measure of grace” is often mixed with “much corruption” and like smoke, can be offensive. Yet Christ will not quench that faintly burning wick.”
Jesus Should Be Like Hamburgers & French Fries. “Do not think me blasphemous when I say that he must be as real and as useful to you as a hamburger and french fries.”
What Should the Church Say to Bruce Jenner? “The hope for Bruce Jenner, and for others like him, is not to alter the body with surgery or to flood their systems with hormones. The answer is to realize that all of us are born alienated from what we were created to be. We don’t need to fix what happened in our first birth; we need a new birth altogether.”
Same-Sex Marriage vs. Divorce/Cohabitation/Adultery/Etc. “I find it very hard to understand how some Christians, perhaps most, fail to see the fundamental threat same-sex marriage poses to the biblical view of marriage. Divorce wounds marriage. Cohabitation and a contraceptive mentality reflect a private indifference to the goods of marriage. But same-sex marriage does something much more fundamental: It asserts public control over marriage, detaches it from the reality of our bodies as male and female, and remakes it into a purely affective union for the sake of . . . affective union.”
