FEEL CONNECTED TO JESUS
the age of Facebook, Twitter, and texting, many Americans feel
more connected to people than ever, but a new national survey by
The Barna Group shows that Americans are not just connected to
each other. One of the dominant connections in people’s
lives is with Jesus Christ. In fact, more people claim to be
closely connected to Jesus Christ than have a Facebook page or
Barna study, conducted among a random sample of 1,002 U.S. adults,
discovered that two out of every three adults (67%) claimed to
have a “personal relationship” with Jesus that is
currently active and that influences their life.
a majority of most demographic segments said they had such an
active and personal relationship with Jesus, some segments were
more likely than others to claim such a connection. For instance,
women (72%) were more likely than men (62%) to do so. Protestants
were more likely than Catholics to cite such a relationship (82%
versus 72%). People who describe themselves as mostly conservative
on social and political matters were far more likely than those
who see themselves as liberal on such issues to connect with Jesus
(79% compared to 48%). And one of the most instructive findings
was that the younger a person was, the less likely they were to
claim to have an active and influential bond with Jesus.
Specifically, while 72% of adults 65 or older and 70% of Boomers
(i.e., ages 46 to 64) had such a relationship in place, 65% of
Busters (i.e., ages 27 to 45) and only 52% of Mosaics (ages 18 to
26) did, as well.
any relationship to be meaningful there must be effective two-way
communication. While an overwhelming majority of Americans claim
to pray during a typical week (more than 80%), the new Barna study
points out that a majority also believes that Jesus speaks back to
them. Overall, 38% said they are “completely certain”
that Jesus speaks to them in ways that are personal and relevant
to their circumstances. An additional 21% said they are “somewhat
certain” that He does so, while 10% contend that Jesus
speaks to them but they were not as sure about that communication.
Eight percent did not know if Jesus Christ speaks to them.
total, less than one-quarter of all adults (23%) stated that Jesus
does not speak to them. Those people were most likely to be
atheists and agnostics; under the age of 30; residents of the
western or northeastern states; Asian-Americans; and those who
describe themselves as mostly liberal on social and political
matters.... Read this in full at
BACKS SEMINARY PRESIDENT AMID CHARGES OF MISREPRESENTATION

February for calling the head of the Southern Baptist Convention
International Mission Board a liar, is now being questioned about

University's board of directors decided not to reprimand Ergun
Caner, dean of the theology school since 2005, after conducting an
inquiry into questions raised in numerous blogs about his
ruling, reported by Christianity Today, follows weeks of questions
in the Baptist blogosphere about written descriptions of Caner's
academic credentials and apparent embellishments in recorded
versions of his testimony, preached in prominent Baptist pulpits
over the years.
April 26, Focus on the Family radio re-broadcast a sermon preached
shortly after Sept. 11, 2001, at Prestonwood Baptist Church in
Plano, Texas, in which Caner said he was born in Sweden, grew up
in Turkey and did not learn English until moving to the United
States in 1978. He claimed he was part of "Islamic Jihad"
and said it was "my people" who carried out the horrors
of the day.

TO `LIGHT UP THE C’ IN NAME, PROGRAMS
50 teenagers and their parents gathered at the YMCA Trout Lodge
recently, in the middle of the Mark Twain National Forest, to
praise Jesus Christ. "We pray that this weekend our hearts
are touched, Lord," one of the group leaders, Mark Patterson
said, "and that we grow closer to you."
this was not one of the many church retreats that meet here, and
Patterson is not a pastor. He's the program director of the South
City Y in St. Louis, and the group he prayed with was there for
FaithFest, the most public evidence yet that the Young Men's
Christian Association in St. Louis is returning to its Christian

and a worship service -- was the latest piece of the nonprofit
group's effort to "light up the 'C' in YMCA," as
staffers have begun to put it.

Christianity. For 157 years, the St. Louis YMCA's mission has been
"to put Christian principles into practice through programs
that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all." But for
almost as long, the Y has moved steadily away from overt displays
of Christian principles. That's about to change.... Read this in

HOW DO WE
ASSESS SPIRITUAL GROWTH?
interview with Dallas Willard
How can churches know if they are being effective at making
Many churches are measuring the wrong things. We measure things
like attendance and giving, but we should be looking at more
fundamental things like anger, contempt, honesty, and the degree
to which people are under the thumb of their lusts. Those things
can be counted, but not as easily as offerings.
Why don't more churches gauge these qualities among their people?
First of all, many leaders don't want to measure these qualities
because what they usually discover is not worth bragging about.
We'd rather focus on institutional measures of success. Secondly,
we must have people who are willing to be assessed in these ways.
And finally, we need the right tools to measure spiritual
formation. There are some good tools available like Randy Frazee's

SERIOUSNESS OF MORTALITY
should be very sure that the ruined soul is not one who has missed
a few more or less important theological points and will flunk a
theological examination at the end of life. Hell is not an "oops!"
or a slip. One does not miss heaven by a hair, but by constant
effort to avoid and escape God. "Outer darkness" is for
one who, everything said, wants it, whose entire orientation has
slowly and firmly set itself against God and therefore against how
the universe actually is. It is for those who are disastrously in
error about their own life and their place before God and man. The
ruined soul must be willing to hear of and recognize its own ruin
before it can find how to enter a different path, the path of
eternal life that naturally leads into spiritual formation in

GOVERNOR LIFTS BAN ON POLICE CHAPLAINS’ SECTARIAN PRAYERS
Gov. Bob McDonnell has lifted a two-year-old ban on sectarian
prayers -- including those referring to Jesus Christ -- led by
Virginia State Police chaplains at department-sanctioned public
recently elected Republican governor instructed police
superintendent Col. Steven Flaherty April 28 to inform the nine
troopers who serve as chaplains of the change in policy.

faith how to pray,” McDonnell spokesman Tucker Martin told
the Richmond Times-Dispatch. “Religious officials of all
faiths should be allowed to pray according to the dictates of
who was reappointed superintendent by McDonnell on April 28,
initiated the ban in September 2008 in response to a ruling by the
4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals that a Fredericksburg, Va., City
Council member may not pray in Jesus’ name during council
meetings because invocations are government speech. Flaherty said
the chaplain-prayer policy never applied to private ceremonies or
individual counseling sessions, but only official public
response, six chaplains -- all troopers who hold the religious
post voluntarily -- resigned in protest. Then-Gov. Tim Kaine, a
Democrat, said at the time he did not initiate the ban but
supported it. Attempts to change the policy failed in the Virginia
General Assembly in 2009 and 2010.

RELIC OF CHRISTENDOM REAPPEARS
Roman Catholic Church is weathering another sex scandal, but it is
impossible to tell in Turin, Italy, where the faint image of a
bearded man on a yellowing linen sheet provides the moment, if
brief, for pilgrims to declare and reaffirm their faith. For some,
it does not matter if the Shroud of Turin is authentic. It is the
shared spiritual experience that counts most.
years after the shroud last went on display, nearly two million
people have made reservations for a timed glimpse of the religious
object (five minutes on weekdays, three on weekends, depending on

is so faint that a recorded announcement assists rapt onlookers to

FREEDOM GROUP CHALLENGES ARMY SYMBOL
religious watchdog group says a cross and motto on the emblem of
an Army hospital in Colorado violate the constitutional
requirement for separation of church and state and should be

this week to change the emblem of Evans Army Community Hospital at
Fort Carson, outside Colorado Springs.

JUDGE: CHRISTIAN BELIEFS HAVE NO LEGAL STANDING
top British judge has ruled that Christian beliefs have no
standing under secular law because they lack evidence and cannot
be proven. Lord Justice John Grant McKenzie Laws made the
declaration April 29 in throwing out a defamation suit by
Christian relationship counselor who refused to offer sex therapy
to gay couples. Gary McFarlane protested that he was fired because
offering sex therapy to same-gender couples violates his Christian
principles. But Laws said "religious faith is necessarily
subjective, being incommunicable by any kind of proof or
evidence." He added that to use the law to protect "a
position held purely on religious grounds cannot therefore be
justified." No religious belief, said the judge, can be
protected under the law "however long its tradition, however
rich its culture."

tech savvy Christians or for just about any of the faithful under
35 years old it's a no-brainer: spreading the Gospel means using
the tools available now … and for a growing number of
churches that means having their own iPhone app.

as ministries of every type, have increasingly embraced apps used
in mobile devices such as the iPhone, here's the basic definition

in the IT community for decades but became newly popular for
mobile applications, especially since the launch of Apple's App

sessions on the state of preaching and strategies for becoming
more faithful expositors of God's Word. The seminary's Advanced
Expository Preaching Workshop has featured intensive studies for
pastors who know the basics of expository preaching and wish to go

Graham, infuriated by his disinvitation from the National Day of
Prayer ceremony at the Pentagon, went on a media tour, arguing
that he was being discriminated against for his Christian beliefs.
He prayed outside the Pentagon and at other locations throughout

editor Lisa Miller met with the son of the evangelist Billy Graham
NEWSWEEK's offices. Excerpts from their conversation:

I was a college student in the 1970s and 1980s I was told
repeatedly that all religions are one. Today teachers who profess
this view are in good company. According to Gandhi, "belief
in one God is the cornerstone of all religions." According to
the Dalai Lama, "the essential message of all religions is
very much the same." From this perspective, popularized by
"perennial philosophers" such as Aldous Huxley, Joseph
Campbell and Huston Smith, all religions are beautiful and all are
true. The prevailing metaphor portrays the world's religions as
different paths up the same mountain. "It is possible to
climb life's mountain from any side," writes Mr. Smith, "but
when the top is reached the trails converge."
is a seductive sentiment in a world in which religious violence
can seem as present and potent as God. But it is dangerous,
disrespectful, and untrue.
world's religious rivals do converge when it comes to ethics -- no
religion tells you it is OK to have sex with your mother or to
murder your brother -- but they diverge sharply on doctrine,
ritual, mythology, experience and law. Such differences may not
matter to mystics or philosophers of religion, but they matter to
ordinary religious folk. Muslims do not think that the pilgrimage
to Mecca is inessential; in fact, they include it among the Five
Pillars of Islam. Catholics do not think that baptism is
inessential; in fact, they include it among their Seven
Sacraments. But religious differences do not just matter to
religious practitioners. They have real effects in the real world.
People refuse to marry a Muslim or a Hindu because of them. And in
some cases religious disagreements move adherents to fight and
the world's religions are one or many might appear to be an
academic question. But our world remains furiously religious, so
religion remains, for good and for evil, one of the most powerful
influences in world history. In the 21st century alone, religion
has toppled the Bamiyan statues of the Buddha in Afghanistan and
the Twin Towers in New York City. It has stirred up civil war in
Sri Lanka and Darfur. Today religious rivalries are either
simmering or boiling over in Nigeria, Myanmar and Kurdistan.
Religion also remains a prime mover in Kashmir, where two nuclear
powers, the Hindu-majority state of India and the Muslim-majority
state of Pakistan, remain locked in an ancient territorial dispute
with palpable religious overtones. Our understanding of these
battlefields is not advanced in the least by the shibboleth that
"all religions are one." .... Read this in full at
David B. Hart
think I am very close to concluding that this whole “New
Atheism” movement is only a passing fad -- not the cultural
watershed its purveyors imagine it to be, but simply one of those
occasional and inexplicable marketing vogues that inevitably go
the way of pet rocks, disco, prime-time soaps, and The Bridges of
Madison County. This is not because I necessarily think the
current “marketplace of ideas” particularly good at
sorting out wise arguments from foolish. But the latest trend in à
la mode godlessness, it seems to me, has by now proved itself to
be so intellectually and morally trivial that it has to be
classified as just a form of light entertainment, and popular
culture always tires of its diversions sooner or later and moves
on to other, equally ephemeral toys.
for instance, the recently published 50 Voices of Disbelief: Why
We Are Atheists. Simple probability, surely, would seem to dictate
that a collection of essays by fifty fairly intelligent and
zealous atheists would contain at least one logically compelling,
deeply informed, morally profound, or conceptually arresting
argument for not believing in God. Certainly that was my hope in
picking it up. Instead, I came away from the whole drab assemblage
of preachments and preenings feeling rather as if I had just left
a large banquet at which I had been made to dine entirely on
crushed ice and water vapor.... Read this in full at
RELIGIOUS FREEDOM BILL FINDS REVIVED INTEREST

bill to protect employees' religious expression in the workplace

TAKE AIM AT ONE OF THEIR OWN
Baptist theologian Jim Hamilton doesn't write a lot of parables.
But he recently posted an original one on his blog in a bid to
delegitimize a popular author who Hamilton says is falsely
advertising himself as an evangelical. In the parable, author
Brian McLaren transforms a Whole Foods Market into a McDonald's,
yet misleadingly retains the "Whole Foods" name.
Hamilton says that's exactly what McLaren is doing in his new
book, "A New Kind of Christianity."
short, McLaren's refashioning Christianity into something
altogether different, but still claiming the "Christian"
name, while leading the unaware astray, Hamilton said. McLaren's
"is the same kind of `Christianity' that colluded, went along
with, Hitler's program in Germany," says Hamilton, associate
professor of biblical theology at Southern Baptist Theological
Seminary in Louisville, Ky. "Leading theologians in that era
of Germany regarded the Bible and history of the Christian faith
in the same way as Brian McLaren does, which is: `This is
outdated. Let's replace it with something up to date."'
attempting to marginalize McLaren, Hamilton has plenty of company.
In March, the flagship seminary took the rare step of convening a
panel to debunk a single book: McLaren's. Bloggers, meanwhile,
have described McLaren's approach as "dangerous,"
"seductive" and "heretical."
his book, McLaren, who says he comes out of a fundamentalist
background, questions long-held assumptions of Christianity. He
bristles at the notion of worshiping a God whose wrath sometimes
appears unjustified. He engages the Bible as literature, in which
God is a main character, rather than as an authoritative type of
"constitution" for the church. And he suggests people
need divine salvation from human evil, not from a sovereign
God.... Read this in full at
