Four Reasons Why We Love The Chosen

F

Have you heard of the Christian show The Chosen? It’s a Biblically based series centered around the people who are chosen by Jesus (Peter, James, John, Matthew, Mary, etc). There’s a lot that could be said about the series, but today I want to focus on four reasons why we love The Chosen…and maybe why you should make The Chosen your next binge watch! 1. To Support Good Christian Art...

Why I Gave Up Secular Music for Two Weeks (And What I Learned)

W

I’ve never had a talent for playing instruments. My voice isn’t all that great. In fact, I’m one of the least musical people you’ll ever meet. However, I love listening to music. While I’m getting ready in the morning, doing homework, and driving in the car… I always have music playing. Even now, as I write this post, I’m sitting outside with music playing on my phone in the background. A couple...

Why the News Media Won’t Just Give Us the Facts

W

I saw an advertisement recently claiming, “Unbiased News from a Christian Perspective.” In the comments, more than a few people pointed out the irony of that statement. We understand ourselves in the contexts of stories and narratives. This is how we make sense of the world. This “sense-making” takes place as we interpret our experiences in the context of the world around us. When we...

Be Careful, Christian, What You Post

“One of the great uses of Twitter and Facebook will be to prove at the Last Day that prayerlessness was not from lack of time.” – John Piper A Sober Reminder A smartphone in the hand of a human can often become more like an extra limb than a tool. Technological advancement has seen exponential growth over the last decade and has greatly entranced the masses. While not inherently wrong, our...

TENET and Trusting the God of Our Future

However, not all media is appropriate for all ages or stages of life, so we encourage our readers to use discernment, listen to their authority figures, and ultimately, consider what is “good, true, and...

5 Books to Get You Through a Never-Ending Pandemic

5

This month, I set out to compile a list of book recommendations that vaguely capture the feeling of now: the world seems tilted, and we wonder when things will be normal again. I don’t know what it’s like in your area, but here in Oregon so many things are still closed down. I feel like I’m cooped up with no clear idea of when I’ll be able to travel and socialize freely again. Because of this, I...

Learning to Embrace Our Emotions with “Inside Out”

Editor’s Note: Here at the Reb, we want teens to engage culture with a biblical perspective. One area of culture we all participate in is entertainment. Should Christians watch movies? How should Christians view entertainment? Can we use it for God’s glory? These are questions we believe should be considered and answered. With that in mind, the Reb will occasionally be publishing...

Should Christians Watch Movies?

S

What have you been doing during quarantine or the shelter at home orders? Many people have turned on their streaming services and checking out the newest Disney+, Netflix, or Amazon Prime show. But how should we, as Christians, use our time? Can we watch films? Should we be watching films as an escape from our current situation or is there a better way to honor God while watching films? I think...
