Three Arguments for the Existence of God

Evolution has fashioned gods of its own design and named them Mother Nature and Father Time. James Hewitt tells of a family of mice who lived in a large piano.  In their piano-world came the music...

Jesus: The Lion, the Ox, the Man, and the Eagle

Most of us are likely familiar with the parallel which has often been noted between the four Gospel Accounts and the four living creatures in the opening vision of the prophet Ezekiel (Ezekiel 1:10). The lion symbolizes supreme strength, kingship; the man, highest intelligence; the ox, lowly service; the eagle, heavenliness, mystery, divinity.

We See Jesus

  We see His sacrifice: what He gave up (Philippians 2:8; cf. 2 Corinthians 8:9). We see His suffering: what He went through (1 Peter 2:21–24; Romans 5:1). We see His success: what He now enjoys (Hebrews...

The Only Book God Ever Wrote

Most popular authors are prolific. They write and write. Many had several books on the market before they became well known. God didn't do that. If you go in a Books-A-Million and search a database for "books that God wrote," you'll only find one listing.

When Life Doesn’t Make Sense

The Bible warns us that “evil” days will come (Ecclesiastes 12:1; Matthew 6:34; Ephesians 5:16). Job observed, “Man born of woman is of few days and full of trouble” (Job 14:1; cf. Psalm 73:14, 21). At times, there will be events, situations, diagnoses, tragedies, and conditions in our lives that will not make sense. At such times, our faith will be tested. And, in such storms, there are foundation stones that cannot be moved.
