In part 1 of this vlog, Dr. Stephen Meyer, Director of the Discover Institute's Center for Science and Culture, discusses the faults in the beliefs of the Neo-Darwinism movement.

In part one of this vlog series, Dr. Bruce Rosdahl shares how modern society has neglected the fundamental dignity that belongs to every human being. Rosdahl breaks down the cascading consequences of a changing worldview-a worldview that has redefined personhood and quality of life based on personal opinion as opposed to a Biblical worldview.

Kids are perceptive.  When we think they’re glued to the TV or lost in a video game, they notice things.  They’re always observing…always learning.  And since they are always learning, it’s important to be intentional about what we teach them.  But how do we do that?  The goal in this article is to help answer that question.

This is the third and final part of our series on evaluating your sermon before you preach it. Our goal with this series has been to help you become better at what God’s called you to do. In Part 3, we look at four more areas for you to consider when preparing a sermon.

In the beginning, humans were created in the image of God but soon sin disfigured that image. Since the Fall (Gen. 3), humankind has struggled to return to the image of God. Today, believers hold to the hope of John’s words that when Christ returns, “we shall be like Him” (1 John 3:2).[1] Christians live in the long struggle between the two images. This brief article reviews the Biblical teaching that addresses how believers may strive toward returning to a proper spiritual formation through the practice of less-emphasized, spiritual disciplines.

This is the second part of our 3 part series on evaluating your sermon before you preach it.  In this article we look at three more areas for you to consider when preparing a sermon.
