I find it fitting this gets published on Valentines Day. The greatest gift we could ever receive from Someone loving us so much. I am so thankful for how God led me writing the post and putting a creative twist on looking at salvation. 

Written July 6th, 2017 

*After covering why salvation is needed it is important to know how you and I can accept Christ. It is more than saying a few words of believing in Christ. It’s more than simply admitting we are a sinner.

Be ready to examine your heart.

*What Does The Heart Represent?

Is Christ in your heart?

(NIV) 1 Samuel 16:07, “The LORD does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart.”

Why the heart? Why do people say ask Christ into your heart? The heart is talked about both in the…

Absolute Truth from the Word of God

Since 2015, I have been writing articles on the Georgia Guidestones and the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.

What do these have in common?  The Georgia Guide Stones (GGS), an eerie monument of sorts, clearly spells out the Globalist’s agenda for our planet. There are ten commandments on GGS, which has been called the  “Stonehenge”  of America.

Here are the ten commandments engraved on the stones:

  • Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature.
  • Guide reproduction wisely — improving fitness and diversity.
  • Unite humanity with a living new language.
  • Rule passion — faith — tradition — and all things with tempered reason.
  • Protect people and nations with fair laws and just courts.
  • Let all nations rule internally resolving external disputes in a world court.
  • Avoid petty laws and useless officials.
  • Balance personal rights with social duties.
  • Prize truth — beauty — love — seeking harmony with the infinite.
  • Be not a cancer on the earth — Leave room…

The Domain for Truth

Street Apologist LIVE with VOCAB MALONE has livestream every Tuesday and Thursday and last week they had an interview with Christian apologist Frank Turek on Jan 31, 2019.

This is what the show’s description was about:

Dr. Frank Turek shows how atheists “steal” reason, evidence, science from God trying to make their case for atheism. Atheists can’t make their case without appealing to realities only theism can explain. Atheists DO NOT have reason, evidence, & science on their side!

Here’s the video of the interview:

Here's the thing...

This is the third installment of a series, introducing terms and ideas that may be unfamiliar to most but are increasingly necessary for the thinking Christian to understand.

“But they’re organic!”

Because we don’t have a Trader Joe’s near our house, whenever my wife can make a trip out to the closest one, she stocks up. I grew up on a steady diet of Crisco and high fructose corn syrup. So, when she introduced me to the reasonably-priced organic food store, I had a lot to learn. Joe-Joe’s, organic equivalent to Oreos, made the learning curve much easier.

They are not all that bad—as long as you haven’t had an Oreo in a while for comparison. And, did I mention they’re organic? Nutritious and delicious, right?

After polishing off the first box within a couple of days, my wife warned me to ease up. “But they’re organic!” My naivete must…

The Domain for Truth

This is a Christian Home School Lesson Series for first graders on the 50 United States.

I typically go over two states at a time since we teach our kids multiple subjects during the day and two states at a time seems to be enough.  However if one is teaching one subject at a time I think going over four states at a time would be just right.

Our series’ lesson plan will be in alphabetical order and go over four states at a time.

Are there any other interesting facts you would add for any of the states mentioned?  Feel free to leave a comment!

Watching Daily At Wisdom's Gates

I’ve been inspired by to consider Bible men and their emotions, to try and encourage myself and my fellow men to get in touch with our emotional sides.

So here’s an introduction to some Bible men and their emotions…

Adam- loneliness and fear

Surprisingly, the first human emotion recorded was a negative one, considering that God created a good cosmos. We’re told at the beginning of Genesis that Adam was lonely, he needed someone to come alongside and help him live life to the full. This doesn’t mean to say that every man needs to marry a woman to not feel lonely, but women are a blessing to help men out in our lives and to befriend us.

After mankind messed up by disobeying God, the next recorded human emotion was fear. Adam heard God walking in the garden and hid because he…
