"Will Studying Science Make You an Atheist? Part 1, Part 2 & Part 3"– The Longmount Pastor
"Dawkins holds the view that Christianity, and faith in general, will eventually go the way of the Dodo bird and become extinct as time goes on. Except…that is not what is happening. Just the opposite is happening actually – and as it turns out, it is as a result of people studying science more…"

"1 Corinthians 15–the Resurrection of Jesus and Our Resurrection"Enduring Word 
"b. As Paul describes the gospel in the following verses, it is important to notice that this gospel is not insightful teaching or good advice. At the core of the gospel are things that happened – actual, real, historical events. The gospel isn’t a matter of religious opinions, platitudes, or fairy tales; it is about real historical events."

"Joshua's Little Spoken of Preparation–Exodus, Numbers, Deuteronomy"NateHoldridge.com
"It is easy to think God shoves His people into the deep end without any training or preparation. He does, after all, use the weak things of the world to put to shame the mighty, the foolish to confound the wise. So we might easily imagine He just takes a brand new novice believer and chucks them into the deep waters of life and ministry opportunity. But, though God loves to take us way outside our comfort zone, He also prepares us for that moment."

"Hatmaker Explains Why She Rejested the 'bad fruit' of the Bible's Teaching of Sexuality"Denny Burk
"The interview focuses on [Jen] Hatmaker’s decision to embrace homosexual immorality as consistent with following Jesus...The problem with this theory is that it elevates our evaluation of consequences above Scripture as the standard for evaluating what is right and wrong."

"The Power of De-Conversion Stories: How Jen Hatmaker is Trying to Change Minds About the Bible"Canon Fodder
"But when it comes to reaching the 'found,' there’s an equally effective method—and this is a method to which the evangelical church has paid very little attention. It’s what we might call the de-conversion story."

"The Only Way to be on the Right Side of History"The Gospel Coalition
"What should Christians make of the now common line of questions, usually posed in regard to our supposedly passé—even evil—beliefs about sexuality?"
