Road Rage!!!

Is there any other situation where we as Christians “lose our witness” that compares to driving? What is it about being in our cars, simply driving from point A to point B, that causes us to become irrationally demonstrative towards our fellow drivers?

Are we in any way comparable in being as aggressive in any other activity in our lives as we are on the open highway? Teachers, secretaries, plumbers, church elders, presidents of companies, and yes even pastors, so many people are “ticking time bombs” on the streets of our cities. There can be an array of speculation as to why, but regardless of our justifications, we really need to figure out how to legitimately “chill out”.

One Unites, The Other Divides

Femininity is a gift, given to the female gender by God. It is an intrinsic part of the DNA of a woman, which God gave as both a gift and a weapon with which to build His Kingdom. Feminism, on the other hand, is a secular, man-made, & humanistic resolution that claims to promote equality; but in reality promotes division, strife, and hatred.

It does not promote the reconciliation of genders, which is a Kingdom purpose and principle. It is a counterfeit, pseudo, and perverted option that has been offered to women as a resolution, when in truth it is a problem, not solution. Proponents of feminism do not understand its destructive and anti-Christ roots. Genesis 1:27 says that, “God created mankind in His own image, male and female, he created them”. God’s Word always promotes reconciliation of genders. Feminism promotes empowerment of women in a divisive manner.

Exclusive Interview With Ravi Zacharias

Apologetics is a field of ministry that defends Christian doctrines through systematic argumentation and discourse. One such leader in this field is Ravi Zacharias, an Indian-born Canadian-American Christian apologist and defender of traditional evangelicalism.

Ravi recently toured to South Africa for the Festival of Thought where he was joined by John Lennox, Michael Ramsden, and several other members of RZIM’s global speaking team. In collaboration with influential business, academic, and ministry leaders in the region, the RZIM team participated in 112 events in corporate boardrooms, on university campuses, and at churches across Johannesburg, Pretoria, Stellenbosch, and Cape Town. Through lively business breakfasts, lunchtime talks, and campus open forums, each gathering addressed a significant topic such as the basis of ethics and integrity, the quest for justice, the role of women in building a nation, and whether science and faith are compatible.

6000 Or 14 Billion Years?

Many evangelicals, even many who deny evolution, accept the standard secular timeline, from an alleged big bang some 15 billion years ago, to now. But several of the Biblical authors, as well as Jesus Himself, make it plain that this is wrong—people were there from the beginning of creation.

Whereas in the evolutionary timeline, people have only been around for one or two million years—this puts them towards the end of the timeline. Thus, Jesus is most definitely claiming that the world cannot be billions of years old.
