Since the writers of the New Testament were directly inspired by the Holy Spirit, and since the apostles were witnesses of what Jesus Himself did and spoke, I think we should endorse the end-time prophecy timeline that they used.
A shallow, superficial “faith” is worthless. Going through the motions alone brings no benefit, and is an insult to the awesome God we serve.
Good people don’t go to heaven. Perfectly good people don’t exist (at least on their own merit). Redeemed people in close relationship with God go to heaven.
Are you a day dreamer? Do you ever think about what might be? What you could become?
Whatever the world may think of you, or whatever you may think of you, this fact remains. You are one of a kind.
If there is one word to describe the noise of our culture, it would probably be CONSTANT. Artificial lights and sounds and activity fill our days and our brains.
Some of it is a lot of fun. Smart phones really are Jetson-like technology, and I love having a library of things to read or my whole collection of music at my fingertips.
But the constant noise follows us from work to home to play. We find ourselves constantly jumping from task to task, afraid everything will collapse if we don’t keep up the frantic pace.
We are left stressed, distracted and short-fused. But what do we do about it?
Have you ever asked “Why me?” or maybe why my family, or why my child, or why that nice person over there? Have you ever wondered why that bad thing happened to you?
