But even if you should suffer for the sake of righteousness, you are blessed. And do not fear their intimidation, and do not be troubled, but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you yet with gentleness and reverence; and keep a good conscience so that in the thing in which you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ will be put to shame.  1 Peter 3: 14-16

Always treated with immense suspicion the narrative of Miaphysites of Egypt and Syria welcoming Arab imperialism in lieu of Byzantium. Akin to the bs of the supposed “tolerant cosmopolitanism” in Arab/Maghrebi occupied Iberian peninsula. https://t.co/lsLTz07STp

Jerome’s Latin translation of the Greek metanoeo / μετανοεω was a mistake. The Latin was “do penance” and developed into doing external deeds that the priest said, like crawl up steps and say 100 hail Mary’s or give money to the...

Make War against your own sin

The music in this makes it really dramatic and effective, in my opinion.  Whoever came up with the music to go with this section of Piper’s sermon, well . . . did a good job.

Muslim argument defeated

Written by

To begin, this is an illogical argument because one can take any religious text and add or delete a verse from it. There’s no magical force field around the text itself.

Note that none of the passages actually use the word, Messiah / Mashiach.

Muslims, Jewish people, and even some liberal scholars claim that Isaiah 52:13-15 and 53:1-12 is not about the Messiah just because the word Messiah is not used there.

Paul Williams, a British convert to Islam, makes this...
