I forget the theological name for this herises, the down grading of Jesus's humanity to make a mockery of his experience as a real man.
The writer forgot that he was tempted in the wilderness and that he was tempted durring his whole life.
He knew what it was to be tired, hungry, thirsty, as a man he would have experienced sexual desires, his temper would have been strained as would his patience.

He knew what temptation meant and because he knows he can help us. If he doesn't know he cannot help us.

20 Truths on ‘Jesus Skeptic’ by John Dickerson

“Jesus bears studying, for his movement has been...among the most powerful movements for social good in all of human history.”


1. “Wherever there is a powerful story, there are powerful people who want to suppress the truth” (Page 15).


2. “When it comes to Christianity, this 10-year investigation has convinced me that my generation of Americans—those born in the 1980’s and younger—have been largely denied the truth about Christianity’s influence and record on social justice” (Page 15, 16).


3. “On average, Christians make up 75% of the populations in the nations that lead the world with the best women’s rights, including matters like equal pay, the right to vote, the right to not be sold into marriage and a striving toward equal rights in all areas. Turns out that Christianity has had significant cultural influence in every one of these best cultures for women. Now, note the absence of Christianity in the nations where women are most oppressed and devalued today” (Page 21, 22).


4. “What was unique about the Scientific Revolution—what was a first in the known history of humanity—was its way of looking at the universe” (Page 27).


5. “…these great scientists who unlocked the Scientific Revolution, they were not incidentally Christian. They were not accidentally Christian. They did not happen to be Christian. Their whole way of seeing the world and the universe was through the lens of Jesus as God, a real being who they firmly believed in. They believed Jesus to be a God who is good and who works with order and predictability” (Page 29).


6. “Unless I wanted to claim to be smarter than Isaac Newton and Blaise Pascal, I needed to stop suggesting that faith in Jesus is anti-intellectual” (Page 37).


7. “If we simplified all the people ...

Azeris and Armenians Clash Over Christian Heritage of Ancient Graves

Smashed headstones challenge image of Muslim-Christian-Jewish coexistence.


The grainy footage is unmistakable. The interpretation isn’t. And the implications could reverberate from Moscow to Tehran to Tel Aviv.


Dozens of men with sledgehammers pound slabs of stone in an otherwise empty mountainous field. Filmed in 2005 by the prelate of northern Iran’s Armenian church, Bishop Nshan Topouzian, the clip purports to show the destruction of khachkars, ornately carved headstones from a Christian graveyard, some dating back to the 6th century.


The site is in Nakhchivan, an enclave of primarily Muslim Azerbaijan geographically separated from the country by primarily Christian Armenia. Iran shares its southern border in the ethnically tangled web of states that make up the Central Asian Caucasus. Russia is to the north, Turkey to the west.


The destruction of more than 2,000 khachkars—in addition to 89 churches, 5,480 cross stones, and 22,000 tombstones—has been labeled “the greatest cultural genocide of the 21st century” by Simon Maghakyan, an Armenian American activist and scholar whose research was profiled in the Guardian. He believes the move represents a campaign by the Azerbaijani government to wipe out its Christian heritage.


“The destruction of these khachkars seems to match in scale and tragedy ISIS’ destruction of Palmyra in Syria and the Taliban destruction of the Bamayan statues in Afghanistan,” said Wissam al-Saliby, advocacy officer at the United Nations for the World Evangelical Alliance.


“This issue goes beyond religious freedom. It is the heritage of mankind.”


But Azerbaijan denies Armenians ever lived in Nakhchivan, and cites similar cultural cleansing of Muslim heritage across the border. Centuries of mutual recrimination have ...

[Cfamily]At Christian Institutions, Leaders Weigh the Cost of Progress

At Christian Institutions, Leaders Weigh the Cost of Progress

New presidents seek to balance tradition and innovation.


The first step in passing on a mantle is to make sure it’s going into the right hands. Historic Christian institutions have seen an influx of new leadership, with boards calling on both experienced professionals and industry newcomers to steer their organizations. For many of the incoming presidents and CEOs, with the desire to effect lasting change comes measured optimism and an eagerness to implement fresh practices, all while balancing a commitment to the institution’s founding principles and stakeholder expectations.


For some leaders, these appointments were the culmination of a dozen deliberate steps, each one taking them closer to the top tier. For others, it was a divine appointment, a position they never expected but now find themselves thriving in.


The latter was certainly the case for Timothy Dalrymple, who assumed the role of president and CEO of Christianity Today in May. While no formal training could have prepared him for this role, he notes that his past experiences—including founding creative agency Polymath Innovations and serving as an editor and vice president of business development at Patheos—have provided an unlikely but providential education.


“At every major intersection, it’s been the case that the next professional calling from God wove together the earliest parts of my life that are unexpected and somehow perfect,” Dalrymple said. “As I come to Christianity Today, it feels as though it draws on all the major threads of my life and produces something really surprising and beautiful. It’s as though all of your yesterdays were research for today.”


Some prepare for their leadership roles in unconventional ways. For Dalrymple, a former NCAA athlete, ...

Playing the Trump Card this Political Season: Civility within Political Hostility

Without tolerance of different worldviews, there will be no dialogue or progress.


Just the simple fact that I used the word “trump” in my article’s title is sure to generate hate mail. Some might see it as a subversive tactic to promote the current president—others the opposite. Neither is the case. I’m simply using it as a hook for you to read what should be the “trump card” this political season.


If you’ve ever played a card game, like Spades, you understand the idea of a “trump card.” If you play an Ace of hearts and I don’t have any hearts, I can then play a “trump card” and beat your Ace.


In this article, I want to briefly share what this political game is about, how people tend to behave in the game, and conclude with an exhortation to believers to play the trump card of virtue and civility during this political season.


What’s this political game about?


George Washington, in his farewell address, states,



 

…Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, Religion and morality are indispensable supports. . . . And let us with caution indulge the supposition, that morality can be maintained without religion. Whatever may be conceded to the influence of refined education on minds of peculiar structure, reason and experience both forbid us to expect that National morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle.



Religion, at the very least, provides a framework for morality.


Our political climate has always had sides that disagreed and fought over the role of government within culture. Small government verses big government. Yet, for the most part there was a common worldview held by both sides. That is no longer the case.


What is transpiring today is the clash of two completely different ...

[Cfamily]Israel Supreme Court Ruling Backs Aramean Christian Rights
« Reply #1438 on: October 27, 2019, 01:04:32 PM »
Israel Supreme Court Ruling Backs Aramean Christian Rights

A decision allowing busing to Hebrew schools calls out the significance of preserving this minority tradition’s unique identity.


Aramean Christians, who speak Aramaic and identify as descendants of Jesus’ earliest followers, recently won another legal victory as they continue to advocate for their rights and heritage in Israel.


The Supreme Court ruled last month that Arameans can now choose to send their children to either Jewish or Arab schools and that their municipalities must provide transportation to accommodate their choice. The decision cited their “right to preserve and nurture their identity as members of a unique minority group.”


Arameans, many of them Maronite Catholic or Orthodox, represent a minority within a minority in Israel. Advocacy efforts over the past several years have revived their historic identity as distinct from Arab Christians in the country.


The initial appeal in the case was filed by Shadi Khalloul, director of the Israeli Christian Aramaic Association and a prominent activist for Aramean causes. Khalloul along with two dozen other Christian families didn’t want their children attending the local Arab school, but the city refused to bus the students to a Jewish school in a nearby community.


Some Arameans fear Arabic-language schools are Arabized and Islamized, and don’t align with their cultural values.


“This was a big injustice for us because it disconnected us from our roots, from our history,” Khalloul told CT, explaining that if their kids could not be educated in Aramaic, they would at least want them to learn in Hebrew. “People were not able to learn the basic things about their identity, our language, the language of Jesus.”


A former officer in the Israel Defense Forces (IDF), Khalloul also opposes sending his children to an Arab school because he says they don’t ...

[Cfamily]Will the Largest Diaspora Become a Global Missionary Force?
« Reply #1439 on: October 28, 2019, 01:22:51 PM »
Will the Largest Diaspora Become a Global Missionary Force?

The globalization of the Indian populace has built bridges for Indian Christians to engage the world at large.


World Economic Forum recently reported that India has the largest diaspora in the world, citing the latest migrant stock dataset from the United Nations population division.


In 2019, the number of international migrants reached 272 million, and India was the leading country of origin (18M), followed by Mexico (12M) and China (11M).


These figures do not include all people of a particular national origin who have switched citizenship or children born to them in foreign countries. A McKinsey report says that 90 percent of cross border migrants move voluntarily for economic reasons. They earn 20-30 percent less than native workers and contribute to about $3 trillion more to the global GDP than if they had worked in their own countries.


The WEF claim, however, has a technical problem with its definitions of migrant and diaspora.
