29 03 2010

Is a Coconut a self contained package you can put in the mail?  In Week #4 of the MythBusters Series, the Epic Team tackled the US Post Office’s claim that you can mail a coconut without a box.

The “live” MythBusters Team explained the post office WOULD NOT mail it and they had to put it in a envelope and BUSTED the myth.

Faith and Doubt

25 03 2010

Sometimes I think people who have faith are afraid to admit they have doubts. But in Matthew 28:16-17, there is this really weird ending to the gospel story. After the resurrection, right before Jesus sends the disciples into world, it says this…

Then the disciples went to the mountain where Jesus told them to go. When they saw Him, they worshipped Him, but some doubted. Matthew 28: 16-17

Isn’t that crazy? These people listened to Jesus, followed Him, saw him Him crucified, saw Him rise again, but still some had doubts. I find that very encouraging. Often I feel the way Dale Bruner puts it…“The Christian faith is bi-polar. Disciples live their life between worship and doubt, trusting and questioning, hoping and worrying.” Ever been there?

There are a couple of things I find amazingly encouraging in that story of worshipping doubters. First, Matthew in not afraid to include them in his story. He is so authentically honest about their struggles. The second is even more amazing, Jesus includes them in His story. These are the people He uses to impact the world. I love the way John Ortberg says it:

“You go! You doubters, go. You risk your lives for Me. You change your world for Me. And you will find as you go that it is your own doubts that are healed. You doubters are included too.”

BUSTED: Science Myths

24 03 2010

Last week, Epic continued the MythBusters Series. We engaged the magnum opus of God’s creative genius, our mind. So many times Christians wade around in the shallow end of challenging questions which is a shame. We are called to not just love the Lord your God with all your heart, but also with all your mind (Luke 10:27). Loving God with half your mind doesn’t cut it. A half-minded Christian is no better than half-hearted one. So we engaged our mind fully and busted four bigtime science myths.

1. The scientific method makes the belief in God obsolete.

2. Science is the enemy of religion.

3.To become a Christian, you have to check your brain at the door.

4. The scientific method can answer the deepest questions about life.

BUSTED: Relationship Myths

19 03 2010

Last week Epic continued the MythBusters Series and busted five bigtime relationships myths. Of all the weeks of this series, these myths make people miserable more than any other. They sound so good, but leave us longing for something that doesn’t exist and often ruin our relationships in the process.

1. People are basically good.

2. You need to find “THE ONE.“

3. Staying ‘in love’ is the key to a great relationship.

4. You can’t love others unless you love yourself.

5. Your happiness is the most important thing in your life.
