    Interracial Marriage OK According to Bible

    08/06/2020 Duration: 22min

    Some say the Bible forbids interracial marriage. Here's WHY they say it and WHY they are wrong. I'm still in the middle of making a series of videos on marriage, divorce and remarriage and since this particular question didn't really fit well into one of those videos I thought I'd make a stand alone video on it. I actually did some research to find out what passages of scripture people used to try to support a ban on interracial marriage (also called anti-miscegenation) and I'm responding to those particular passages and talking points in this video. Here's my full and in-depth teaching on divorce and remarriage in the Bible. https://youtu.be/N2pC6ZikbYo This is my teaching on a biblical understanding of wive's submitting to their husbands https://youtu.be/H8PFVZgIQ2w This is my teaching on how to be a husband according to the Bible. https://youtu.be/65eMggo_xKQ Subscribe to get new videos every week and learn to think biblically about everything.

    Her book says that persecution of early Christians wasn't really a thing. This is actually a very important issue when it comes to the evidence for the resurrection of Christ. If the apostles experienced persecution then we have reason to think that they were sincere in their claims that Jesus had risen from the dead. In this video you'll hear several of Dr. Candida Moss' reasons for thinking their is a "Myth of Persecution" and you'll get thoughtful responses from Dr. Sean McDowell who has specialized in researching and writing on this topic. You'll get a balanced and thoughtful view of this topic today.

    We will go through 24 different ways in which Jesus fulfilled the Jewish Feast of Passover. Passover was given by God in the Old Testament and fulfilled by Jesus in the New. I hope this teaching stirs your heart with appreciation for the brilliance of the Bible as well as the incredible, loving self-sacrifice of Christ for our sins.

    Talking to your kids about Jesus is a powerful resource for giving your kids the theological and apologetics training that they probably won't get from church. I'm joined today by Natasha Crain, who has spent years helping parents do a good job training their kids to be able to have a confident and well-informed faith. She has three books that all follow the format of unpacking important questions about God, Jesus and Christianity with the help of short chapters that answer those questions quickly and thoughtfully. My favorite part of her books is the conversation guides which help parents to talk to their kids about those questions in a healthy, educational and interactive way. Her blog and resources can be found here. https://natashacrain.com The book is "Talking to Your Kids about Jesus", I HIGHLY recommend it and it's available here. https://www.amazon.com/Talking-Your-Kids-about-Jesus-ebook/dp/B07VLC3MQY/ My web site is here. https://biblethinker.org

I'm going to do my best to explain the gospel message in a way that is accessible to those who haven't spent a lot of time in church but also in a way that gives you an awareness of the grandeur of what God has done for us through Christ.

Can we do it, and if so, how? What do we need to be aware of? 2. 14:43 In 1 Corinthians 15: 2, what does Paul mean when he says, "...unless you believed in vain"? 3. 17:48 Since you say that Ephesians 2: 8 does not teach that faith is the "gift of God", does it originate with us then? How does that square with 1 Corinthians 2: 14, since the "natural man" cannot receive the things of the Spirit of God? 4. 25:36 To what extent is Satan involved in the sins of mankind? Some believe that he has little to do with the current sins of man, but others believe he is at the heart of every temptation. 5. 28:47 In your opinion, who is the "he" referring to, in 2 Thessalonians 2: 7?

    The next live stream is planned for Tuesday at 5pm PST. Hope to see you there! Some people have sadly misunderstood the words of Jesus here and cut off parts of their bodies as a way of avoiding sin. Not only does this fail to keep you from sinning, it isn't what Jesus wants. Today I'll be teaching on what Jesus meant by "cut off your hand", "cut off your foot" and "gouge out your eye". His words, when understood rightly, are still extreme, they just aren't about causing physical harm. Another HUGE issue in this passage is Jesus trying to wake us up as to the eternal consequences of choosing sin over God. May we be woken up and may we follow his commands to be salt in this world.

    Dispelling popular myths about Mary Magdalene and giving you an actual survey into the historical data about her. The stuff you see about Mary Magdalene in movies, plays and even in news articles is so bad it hurts my brain. And after this, it may hurt your brain too. If you want the lowdown on the "true Jesus", the "authentic Jesus", the "real Jesus" then you're going to have to face the fact that our best information about Jesus is found in the documents of the New Testament. The "itch" that many people have to find a Jesus different than that which we read about in the Bible has lead them to embrace a lot of weird, unsubstantiated and just plain dumb ideas.

    For the first time I'm going to be streaming my Sunday evening Bible study from home. Jesus' teaching in this passage, Mark 9:33-42, is meant to stop abuses in leadership, unnecessary division and competitive self-seeking in Christians. These issues are so relevant to us today that we need to take Jesus' words to heart. It may require that we change some things about ourselves or our ministries.
