As a young believer in the '70s, I was clearly taught that yoga could not be practised by Christians. This was not a difficult thing for me to accept, even though yoga was already quite popular where I lived. Is this not taught in churches today as a matter of course? :-/
Encouraging and convicting! This was a great broadcast! I would recommend reading the booklet that Reb wrote "Solving the Crisis in Homeschooling...". He also has some great articles on his website.
When my kids were little, I wouldn't let them see the animated version in the cinema, because a Christian friend had warned me it was "steamy" and not really that suitable for children, despite them being the target audience. Twenty-odd years later, and look where we are...
Great Sermon! I was refreshed by the reminder of God's love for me. Although I sometimes feel alone or abandoned,the truth is that our wonderful, covenant-keeping God is near. So near that we are graven on his heart!
Great Sermon! Very interesting! When I was a new believer, someone asked me "what is the difference between most bathing suits and walking around in underwear?" I am a mom of multiple sons so attending public swimming pools are not usually an option for us. I am trying to teach them to see girls/women as people and to discern how our culture treats them as objects. Also, to understand why some females seem to desire to be treated as an object (I used to be one of them)and to have compassion for these people.
Great Sermon! This was such a blessing to me. I expected to hear a sermon about why I should be praying more (which I already know). Instead, I heard a message which stirred up my desire to pray more and also encouraged me to persevere in the areas that I have grown weary. Thank you!
Interesting and to-the-point I was amazed at the huge amount of attention the Ken Ham v. Bill Nye debate received. I watched the full debate and was honestly disappointed in it, mostly due to the fact that Bill Nye through out way too many claims and Ken Ham did not have near enough time to sort through them.
My brother and spent hours discussing possible rebuttals. For example Bill Nye mentioned the TV program in which the face of murder victims can be re-created using only skulls, therefore we should trust scientists who do this with ancient fossils supposedly recreating prehistoric men? But how can CIA recreate faces? By observing thousands of similar cases and making deductions. Obviously, there are not thousands of ancient photographs we can compare with thousands of skeletons until we observe trends and patterns needed to recreate ancient men from fossils.
There was just no way to condense all the refuting needed into 5 min blocks.
I was so glad to find that my favorite apologetic's podcast had done a series with the scientific answers to Bill Nye's claims. These podcasts were interesting, to-the-point and easy to understand. I highly recommend them to all.
