  • The power.
    The power to destroy all of your enemies.
    The power to be the most important.
    The power to show the world you are the ruler of all.
    Hollywood often portrays powerful, vengeful people as heroes and winners. When you contemplate that Jesus had the power to destroy the world and all of his enemies, to end the lives of the men torturing and spitting on and mocking him, remember this: he didn’t retaliate.
    As the old hymn says, “He could have called 10,000 angels to destroy the world, but he died alone, for you and me.”

  • The atheists are recruiting.
    Let me explain. I absolutely love the Kentucky State Fair. It is something I typically never miss. The weird food, awesome displays of agriculture, the maze of flea market trinkets, etc.
    One thing that absolutely blew my mind this year was a sad and unusual booth I encountered. I was walking by this unattended booth and stopped as it had a statue of Mark Twain, and the back wall was covered with posters of celebrities.
