    June 19 2012 by Mark Coppenger, Baptist Press | with 0 comments

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Were there dinosaurs on Noah’s Ark? Maybe so. If they were alive on the earth in Noah’s day, then they were included in God’s directive that Noah bring two of every kind of land animal and bird into the ark (Genesis 6:18-21).

  • The Rise of Individualism

    June 18 2012 by Rit Varriale, Guest Column | with 0 comments

    The term “individualism” has a variety of nuances. For purposes of this work, the term is used to refer to the value, protection, and promotion of the rights and beliefs of the individual. That’s a good thing. Each individual should be valued in a society.

  • Be there

    June 15 2012 by Erich Bridges, Baptist Press | with 0 comments

    RICHMOND, Va. – Don’t just do something; stand there. Better yet, kneel there. Be there. It’s easy to switch the verbs in the old, accusatory challenge to do something – anything – rather than stand around. Lots of preachers, speakers and writers invert the familiar phrase to encourage us to slow down and be still.

    June 12 2012 by Jason Lee, Baptist Press | with 0 comments

    FORT WORTH, Texas – I was blessed to have my dad when I was growing up. Not only that, I also knew both of my grandfathers (since they were World War II vets, one at Utah Beach and the other on Guadalcanal, that was not a given). Not everybody is as blessed as I was.

    LOUISVILLE, Ky. (BP) – Suppose that you became a Christian in the second century A. D. You’ve heard the story of a divine being who died on a cross and rose from the dead. Through baptism, you’ve openly identified yourself with His followers.

  • 6 ways NAMB can help your church in evangelism

    June 7 2012 by Larry Wynn, Guest Column | with 0 comments

    ALPHARETTA, Ga. (BP) – There’s really no better sign of a church’s spiritual health than the evangelistic activity of its people. It always excites me to see Southern Baptists embrace their calling to make Christ known. We’re fast approaching a season of intense, concentrated engagement in reaching communities for Christ.

    June 6 2012 by Trevin Wax, Baptist Press | with 1 comments

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. – My grandparents remember the day when “religious diversity” in the South referred to the presence of multiple Christian denominations. – Pentecostals debating spiritual gifts with Baptists. – Presbyterians promoting perseverance of the saints over against the Methodists.

    June 5 2012 by Malcolm Yarnell, Guest Column | with 1 comments

    “Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity. It is like the precious ointment upon the head, that ran down upon the beard, even Aaron’s beard, that went down to the skirts of his garments. As the dew of Hermon, that descended upon the mountains of Zion, for there the Lord commanded the blessing, even life forevermore” (Psalm 133).

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. (BP) – I have the incredible opportunity to interact with pastors regularly. In recent conversations, I have asked two questions. First, have you ever experienced burnout in your ministry? Second, what do you do to prevent pastoral burnout? Interestingly, every pastor with whom I spoke had experienced some level of burnout.

    June 1 2012 by Aaron Linne, Guest Column | with 0 comments

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. – On my bookshelf sits a copy of the B&H Publishing Group classic trade book from 1991, “Help, There’s a Computer in My Church!” Surprisingly, I have yet to be able to convince our leadership team to convert it into ePub so we can start selling it again on the Barnes & Noble Nook .

  • Falling in love with Nineveh

    May 30 2012 by Eric Geiger, Baptist Press | with 0 comments

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. – When the Lord called me into ministry, I told Him I would go anywhere He asked. When Kaye and I married and discussed where the Lord would possibly put us, we committed we would go wherever He sent us. I graduated from seminary, and was asked to fill out a form indicating where we would like to serve.

    DALLAS (BP) – Same-sex “marriage” is getting some high profile support lately. But in actual elections, it still loses.   With the recent vote in North Carolina, 31 states now have amended their constitutions to protect marriage, defined as the union between one man and one woman.
