March 28th, 2019 Viewed 768 times, 1 so far today

Church Membership is a weird thing in 2019’s America. Having just covered what it means to be a church, you may wonder why someone would want to be a member of a local church at all. And practically speaking, there is little advantage to modern church membership.

How Do We Define Church?

March 27th, 2019 Viewed 794 times, 3 so far today
Here’s the church, here’s the steeple, open the doors and see all the people?

For many of us, the rhyme was a cute way to picture a church with people in it– until someone came along and told us that the church is the people, so we open the doors to see the church– and 4 year olds everywhere became very confused!

It turns out, however, that how we define “the church” makes a difference on how we interpret various passages of the Bible and how to apply it to ourselves today.

An article in the Atlantic last year suggested much the same and it came about because almost everything that President Trump tried to do was stopped by one Federal District Court judge.

Does Sex or Pregnancy Equal Marriage?

I enjoy reading posts from all different points of view– ones that I agree with and ones I disagree with. Sometimes I don’t have an opinion, only an idea.

The topic I mention above, whether God considers premarital sex equal to two people getting married, is something that I had heard when I was a teen, but I’ve never really come to an conviction. When Tim Challies wrote an article on the topic, I read it, and it opened the concept in my head anew.

Everything’s Not Awesome, so Let’s Give Up?

Right after Wild Style gets done saying that it’s not all hopeless and bleak, they say that they should probably aim for “not bat” which almost comes out sounding like “nothing.”

Totally the opposite of the whole “shoot for the stars and end up in the clouds” right?

April 6 is the New Y2k

Don’t look now, but if you have a flight for April 6, you may want to reschedule:

Don’t look now, but there’s another Y2K-like computer-calendar problem on the way, and this one arrives in just one month: April 6, 2019.

That’s the day millions of GPS receivers will literally run out of time, rolling over their time counters back to zero, thanks to limitations in timekeeping for older GPS devices. Many navigation systems may be affected, such as on ships or older aircraft, although your smartphone will be fine. 
But because GPS satellites are also crucial to digital timekeeping used by websites, electrical grids, financial markets, data centers and computer networks, the effect of April 6 may be even more wide-ranging.

How about you? Does this scare you at all, or will it be Y2k and basically a non-event?

Demographic Time Bomb

Contrary those that are talking all the time about overpopulation, the real problem that we’re seeing in the United States is an issue of a demographic crisis.

Americans are not having enough children. They’re making up the quantity, to some degree, with immigrants and hoping all will be well; however, immigrants are not the same as natives. They don’t have the same values, the same heroes, or upbringing.
