Taking the familiar backdrop of the ALIEN universe he helped create in 1979 and the themes of creature confronting creator in Blade Runner, director Ridley Scott stylishly revisits these basic human questions in the gripping film Prometheus. Are we made in the “image and likeness” our creator? Did our creator build into us the ability to seek and find him
In John Chapter 13, we are in the Upper Room, where Jesus Christ is celebrating the Passover just hours before he is to be crucified. Jesus Christ and His men are around that table. Jesus has made it clear that one of these men is going to betray Him

At Resurgence, we want to train you well, and we want to get the word out about others who are training Christians well. Our friends over at Reformed Theological Seminary (RTS) have been working hard to serve and teach people digitally for a while now, and they were actually one of the first seminaries to get their free lectures on iTunes U.

In the previous post in this series we examined the concept of a worldview and how, philosophically speaking, Christianity supports scientific investigation more fully and consistently than any other worldview. Here, we’ll focus our attention on what is undoubtedly the hottest topic debated at the border of faith and science: evolution
Impatience Is Not a “Lesser” Sin I’m often astonished by my lack of patience. I’m also convicted by it, as Paul establishes patience as a fruit of the spirit (Galatians 5:22). By implication, my lack of patience is a work of the flesh that often manifests in “enmity, strife . .
