The Devil IS the Problem!

 In 1 John 5:18-19 we read, “He that is begotten of God keepeth himself, and that wicked one toucheth him not.

Evolution and Resolution

  “A multinational team of researchers at the site of Jebel Fayka in the United Arab Emirates has gathered evidence that now suggests that groups of Homo sapiens may have migrated from Africa across the southern end of the Arabian Peninsula as early as 125,000 years ago (Archaeology, May/ June 2011).”  This article caught my […]

Overcoming All Things

by Dan Cox Jesus tells the parable in Matthew 13 of the enemy sowing tares among the wheat while the men slept. The parable of the wheat and tares emphasizes that Satan will sow alongside those who sow the Word of God. Jesus’ message to the churches in Revelation is a promise of the inheritance […]
