  • I am often perplexed by those who do not believe the Bible is real or believe in Jesus.
    Hundreds of original manuscripts of the Bible exist today. Hundreds of eyewitnesses saw Jesus crucified and rise. These are the documented facts.
    The Bible is not some elaborate fable or book of thoughts. It is no less than the inspired word of God.  There have been many manipulations of what the Bible says by various religions, but its words are the same today as they were 2,000 years ago.

  • Have you experienced great loss in your life, like a death in the family or financial troubles?
    I am sure you have and have asked God, “Why me?”
    Personal suffering is part of life but as Christians, aren’t we just clay in the potter’s hands? Right now I know a lot of people are suffering, especially due to the economic situation locally and nationally.  I believe sometimes we go through bad circumstances to have a closer relationship with our creator.
