  • Facts that non-believers don’t want to read

    I find the Bible to be so fascinating. Non-Christians or general non-believers often scoff at the Bible being accurate or true at all.
    It’s fascinating how anyone could believe such an amazing work of literature written over 2,000 years ago and compiled by numerous authors all inspired by God can be so easily dismissed.
    I am most surprised that some dismiss it when historically there is no doubt a man named Jesus lived and was crucified.

  • Share Christ’s message with evil-doers, too

    The Colorado shooting spree that took place last week is one of the saddest and most disturbing things I can imagine.
    My heart and my prayers go out to the families that lost loved ones and the still injured.
    I often reflect on what kind of a monster this suspect was to apparently commit such a heinous act. It is reminiscient of Columbine or Timothy McVeigh.
    Over the weekend I heard comments from others about what they wish they could do to the perpetrator of this evil act.

  • Lessons learned in belly of the great fish

    This week I want to revisit the tale of Jonah and the whale.
    The story of Jonah, God’s prophet, is told by God: “Go to the great city of Ninevah and preach against it, because its wickedness has come up before me.” Jonah 1:2.
    Ninevah was the capital of Assyria and very much a hated enemy of Israel. Jonah knew God was capable of forgiving the Ninevites, and this made him not want to do what God commanded.
