New Testament Creeds: A Strong Case for the Gospels The New Testament does not quote only from the Old Testament. It also quotes pre-New Testament creeds which describe early Christian doctrine. Scholars recognize several of these creedal passages.[1] All creedal material embedded in the New Testament predates the texts within which it finds itself.

You Can’t Make Disciples until You Make This Shift It’s fascinating to me that two people can experience the same thing in opposite ways. For instance, one person might hear a sermon and say, “That was the best message I’ve ever heard,” while someone else will say, “I didn’t get anything out of it.” We hear this in churches all the time. Things like…... Photo of Neil ReynoldsNeil Reynolds
Could the Disciples Have Been Hallucinating When They Saw the Risen Jesus? Renew partner Zach Breitenbach recently published an article in the Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society called “A New Argument that Collective Hallucinations Do Not Adequately Account for the Group Appearances of Jesus in the Gospels.” Recently, I was able to interview Zach about his new argument against the theory that the post-resurrection appearances were...

Behind the Curtain: How God Built a Missionary Family into a Family of Missionaries “Woe to me!” I cried. “I am ruined! For I am a man of unclean lips, and I live among a people of unclean lips, and my eyes have seen the King, the LORD Almighty” (Isaiah 6:5). I remember, as a teen, meandering behind my parents as they journeyed from the church pew, up the... Photo of Luke GrayLuke Gray
How Do You Remain Faithful to God When Life Has Been Terrible to You? (Part 1) When I worked in adult education, I traveled to a state director’s meeting. On the morning of the meeting, I sat there listening to our speaker in a room that had amphitheater seating with desks in each row. Suddenly, I got this very warm sensation trickling down my back. I heard the man behind me... Photo of Julia MartinJulia Martin

Is Anxiety Interfering in Your Relationship with God? “Am I doing enough to please God?” “Am I a good enough person to get into heaven?” These are some common worries that many Christians face and admit experiencing on a regular basis. We are told as a body of believers we should fear the Lord our God. And, yes, we should fear the Lord... Photo of Andrew HaworthAndrew Haworth

3 Lessons I Learned from Norman Geisler One of the greatest Christian apologists of our lifetime has finished his task. To me, Norman Geisler (1932-2019) was a mentor, a co-author, and a friend. He passed into heaven on Monday morning, July 1. Can I tell you 3 lessons I learned from Norm? #1 – Aim Higher. Although Norm was not a Renew... Photo of Daniel McCoyDaniel McCoy
What Happens When We Die Recently, I prayed with two men who were dying. Both were under Hosparus Care and were barely conscious. I reminded them of 2 Corinthians 4:16-5:8 where believers are encouraged not to lose heart when facing death. The Apostle Paul wrote that though outwardly we waste away, inwardly we can be rejuvenated daily. Paul advised, “So... Photo of Bob RussellBob Russell

I could tell by the look on his face that we were about... Photo of Paul HuyghebaertPaul Huyghebaert

Tired of Living as Predictably as a Facebook Advertisement? Headlines were buzzing with the announcement. Facebook had introduced a new metric that would significantly revamp their algorithms.

Crouched in shadows, beyond a labyrinth of cubicles, programming bits to track our every cyber-click. Or is my overactive imagination... Photo of Debbra StephensDebbra Stephens
