Is your life worth following?

My son is learning this verse in VBS this year and it has been a great reminder to me: "Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity." - 1 Tim. 4:12

Young or old, God calls us to be an example.

Gut your life worth following?

The impact of Darwin is not limited to biology

Check out Marvin Olasky's article about why when it comes to Darwin, the influence of evolutionary thinking reaches far beyond biology. The bottom line: Daniel Dennett in Darwin's Dangerous Idea hit it right...Darwin created a "universal acid" that eats through any "meaning coming from on high."

The Myth of Junk DNA

Is DNA mostly random junk that has gathered over the generations of natural selection acting on random mutation or does it indicate purposeful design? Jonathan Wells makes the case for design in his new book.

"A number of leading proponents of Darwinian evolution claim that “junk DNA”—the non-protein-coding DNA that makes up more than 95% of our genome—provides decisive evidence for Darwin’s theory and against intelligent design, since an intelligent designer would not have littered our genome with so much garbage. In The Myth of Junk DNA, biologist Jonathan Wells exposes their claim as an anti-scientific myth that ignores the evidence, relies on illegitimate theological speculations, and impedes biomedical research. After reading this book, your view of the genome will never be the same again."

If Christianity is true, then it speaks to every area of life

“If Christianity should happen to be true – that is to say, if its God is the real God of the universe – then defending it may mean talking about anything and everything. Things can be irrelevant to the proposition that Christianity is false, but nothing can be irrelevant to the proposition that Christianity is true.” - G.K. Chesterton

How We Change Spiritually: Vision, Intention, & Means

Here is a great summary of Dallas Willard's V.I.M. Pattern (cf. Rom. 12:2; Phil. 4:8; Col. 3:1-3; Ps. 16:8-11):

“Nourishing our mind with good and godly ideas, images, information, and the ability to think creates our vision…From these, we intend to be formed so that God is a constant presence in our mind, crowding out false ideas, destructive images, misinformation about God, and crooked beliefs. As for means, certain tried and true disciplines aid us in the transformation of our thought life toward the mind of Christ. We cannot transform our ideas, images, information, or thought processes into Christlikeness by direct effort, but we can adopt certain practices that indirectly have that effect.”—Dallas Willard
