Imagine having a “humanzee” standing or sitting next to you.  This is the name that psychologist David Barash has given to the joining of a chimpanzee with a human. He says it would not be impossible to do in a laboratory because the two creations share an estimated 99 percent of nuclear DNA. (Source: “The […]

In my previous post I mentioned reading the Book of Proverbs, in the Old Testament. It comes right after Psalms. This book is full of wisdom and truth that does not change no matter the circumstances. It also gives one example of how practical the Bible is, even for today’s culture. So what exactly is […]

Absolute truth: something that is true at all times and in all places, no matter what the circumstances; a fact that cannot be changed. Relativism: the doctrine that knowledge, truth, and morality exist in relation to culture, society, or historical context, and are not absolute. Deception: causing someone to accept as true or valid what is false or […]

In 1967 I was part of a group of college students who heard a man by the name of Hal Lindsey speak. He is the author of a book called, “The Late Great Planet Earth.”  Being a part of the younger generation you probably have not heard of it. It tells about things that would […]

Most people, Christians and secular, have probably heard of the anti-Christ associated with the number 666. It is part of the Tribulation Period described in the Book of Revelation. If you read my previous article, “The Younger Generation is in For A Wild Ride,”  I gave several Bible verses which say that there is coming […]

Did you ever stop and ask yourself why the world is the way it is? It is getting worse, not better. I am not trying to be negative here, but in my generation (I am 69 years old) the world has changed dramatically, and not in a good way. This article, in fact this blog, […]

When Billy Graham passed away his body was lying in state in the U.S. Capitol Rotunda. Christian recording artist, Michael W. Smith, sang a song called, “Just As I Am.” This is the same song sung at the end of every crusade that Rev.Billy Graham conducted. The message of this song is that God accepts […]

“It’s one thing to talk to Jesus. It’s another thing when Jesus talks to you. That’s called mental illness if I’m not correct. Hearing voices.” That was the response of Joy Behar of the television show, “The View,” in response to the statement made by Vice President Mike Pence that he listens to Jesus. Oprah […]

The Bible says in Ephesians 6:12 says, “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.”  This has become more and more evident lately. Satan worship has increased dramatically. Exorcism is […]

If you are contemplating marriage, or have recently become married, your spouse has a past life that can be brought into a marriage, like it or not. This is what many newly married couples fail to realize. Too often, not much attention is given to it. This past life can consist of many elements: upbringing, […]

Iceland recently has started aborting babies if tests reveal that Down Syndrome is present. CBS supported their decision. Frank Stephens, who has DS, spoke before a U.S. Congressional committee. He asked a very stabbing question: “Is there no place in the world for us?” Apparently Iceland does not think there is. In the words of Mike […]

Good functioning and productive relationships don’t just happen. They require conscious thought, keeping in mind practical principles and techniques. It really is not as important how much knowledge or training you have in your field of work if you don’t know the secret to having good relationships with your coworkers. These principles also apply to […]

This blog is written primarily to the younger generation of all those below the age of 30. You could very likely be the ones to witness the full implementation of artificial intelligence (AI). This is a branch of computer science dealing with the simulation and capability of computers and machines to initiate intelligent human behavior, […]

I sat in a communion service in church recently. You know, communion is when you eat a wafer or piece of bread, and drink wine or grape juice, in remembrance of the death of Jesus Christ. The thought came to mind that if it were not for the grace of God, not one single person […]

Recently my wife and I were looking at an old family movie sent to us by a relative. In it we saw how we were in younger years. We were engaged in various activities. There were pictures of our family growing up in different stages of life. That was back then. Fast forward to the […]

In order to go to heaven a person must be perfect in the eyes of God. How can that be, you ask? No one lives a perfect life. That is true, especially the standards set by God. God looks at the attitudes, motives, and intentions of the heart.  Sin is separation from God; it is […]

People often say that no one knows the day nor the hour when Jesus will return. That is a very true, for the Bible itself says it. However, it is possible to know the general time in history. Within the pages of the Bible are scattered hundreds of prophecies. Many of them have already literally […]

1. Do you believe in God and an afterlife? Some believe in a literal heaven and hell. Others believe in things like reincarnation. There are those who have the belief that one just ceases to exist. How about you? If you believe in a literal heaven and hell, then go to the next question. 2. […]

A recent headline from CBN News caught my attention: “Most Americans Believe They’re Sinners, but Disagree On What To Do About It.”  According to a poll, there were three ways that people are dealing with it. One, they are working on overcoming it. Two, some are relying on Jesus Christ, and three, others responded by […]

The Problem Areas: The biggest problem that people face in money and money management is not so much with the quantity of money they have but how they manage it. There are certain principles of money management that many people neglect. Another area of concern for Christians is prosperity theology. You know, these are the […]

People make such a big deal over the phrase, “separation of church and state.” The atheists use it to “support” their position. The truth of the matter is that anyone who uses this as an argument is either ignorant or is intentionally taking this phrase out of context.  There is no such thing as separation of […]

Recently, Ken Hamm, of the Ark Encounter, in Kentucky, lit up the life-size replica of Noah’s Ark with the colors of the rainbow. This was in keeping with the original intent of the rainbow. After the worldwide flood of Noah’s time, it is reported in the Book of Genesis that the rainbow was the sign from God that there […]

Human history is rapidly approaching a moment of truth and accountability.  As we see all of the wrong things happening in the world shouldn’t people be asking what the reason is behind it all?  Wouldn’t it be great if, over all the centuries, the world had progressively improved to where we are living in a […]

What is so wrong with the Ten Commandments? That is the question I would ask of the individual who destroyed the Ten Commandments Monument in the Arkansas State Capitol one day after it was erected. After all, they are for the good of society. The first several talk about God and one’s relationship to him. […]

There has always been, and always will be, disagreements and division among political parties. Much of that is good and open debate. It is necessary to advance legislation for the good of the people. Argument is part of the democratic process in America. It is one thing to have hotly detested  dialogue. But when those of […]
