  • Jeremiah’s words still ring true today

    Jeremiah is such an interesting character of the Bible. He authored Jeremiah and Lamentations. Jeremiah was a very much-hated man because of his prophecies.
    He was scoffed at, people plotted to kill him, and he was commanded to remain celibate and not to participate in public celebrations.

  • Rest assured, even atheists will meet God

    I am often confused by the concept of atheism and ponder that there are those who actually reject the existence of God.
    How can someone step back and look at the vastness of our world, the beauty and intricacies of nature, to see your own eyes in your child’s eyes and believe this is all an accident?
    To me it borders on actual hatred for God as opposed to love of him. I believe even the unreached villager in Papua New Guinea acknowledges God.

  • 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.
