The Movie Reel

Why do miracles seem to happen only in remote places?

We read about miracle healings in Natural Geographic magazines, missionary stories, and other articles from remote corners of the world.  Why do we not hear about them in what we would consider more civilized or...

Gay Marriages or Abortion: Pick one

Recently, a friend of mine asked the question on Facebook, “if you had to vote to ban gay marriages or to ban abortion, which would you choose?”  She had a pretty good response.  What really...

An omnipresent God or a pantheistic God?

What’s missing in education?

Education is supposed to prepare individuals for life.  Originally, education was about learning to read and write.  It was about providing the basic skills that are needed to advance ourselves in the world...

Good or Evil, The Chicken or the Egg

Observation…Interpretation…Application

Church today was pretty good.  We had a brief tutorial on how to read and study the Bible presented by Paul, the President of HBI.  I really enjoy the way he structures his presentations because he sounds less...

The Others
