How could a toddler survive a slaughter targeting everyone in his town and surrounding area who was like him? Were his parents powerful or very well connected? Did they have a secret society that helped them? Was it luck in timing with a series of events that would normally take place anyway?

A common Christmas carol is entitled The First Noel. What is a Noel other than a person’s proper name? If we look up “noel” we find that it refers to a carol. It is possible that the word noel may be related to an Old French word natal relating to a birth.  If this refers to the Christmas ca…

An apology: Last week’s article appeared to have a couple of strange words in it. That is what happens when my computer anticipated that I wanted to drop a word into a previously typed word. My late night attempt to edit did not catch the error.

We do not live in an ideal world. There are battles of sorts all around us. The problem of course is someone else. If they would just reform then things would be better. That, however, is not realistic. We each as imperfect people share blame for the problems that we together have made.

Sometimes people will say that they do not want to believe in God because they cannot count on God to deliver a miracle when they want one. Being disappointed about the lack of a miracle is not necessarily all bad. When a person wants a miracle on behalf of a loved one that is not automatica…

There are a number of reasons that people say for not wanting to be a Christian. Some of them have to do with a person’s relative goodness or rottenness as they see it. Some have said, “I am too bad for God to love me. God would not want to have anything to do with a person like me.”

Four hundred years ago the Pilgrims faced a very challenging life. The Mayflower was a small wooden ship providing cramped quarters and close contact. This was a great environment for the spread of disease. Many died. In the winter some stayed on the ship.

Do you know how deceitful the devil is? The Bible says, “And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light” (2Corinthians11:14 KJV). Many portray him as a red demon with horns, a forked tail, and a trident in his hand but the Bible says he can appear as an angel of light…

Fear is fun for some. The element of surprise is stimulating. It is good for entertaining some. In reality it is not what we would wish even on an enemy. Land mines are not anything a person would want on a playground for either side of a conflict.

Whose responsibility is it for justice? We first would think that it is the justice system that would be in charge of it. Yet the justice system deals with only those who break the law, and whether or not people rich enough to hire attorneys feel like their rights have been violated.

Do you know who the sons of God are? Some believe that angels are the sons of God that married the daughters of men and had children with them and the children were giants and men of renown (Genesis6:2-4KJV). However, Jesus, speaking of those who are in the resurrection of life, “…they neith…

The wonderful thing about active communication is that it works. In active communication there is someone who sends the message (the speaker) and there is an active listener. Active listening is quite different from other forms of inactive listening. The other forms of listening (inactive) h…

We can gain wisdom by comparing and contrasting two people that ended up as kings.  The first one was chosen to become a king.  He was in the king’s service for a lot of years. He was not the king’s son but was the king’s son’s best friend as well as the king’s son-in-law.  The king, however…

Do you know there is a trial going on now and each of us is awaiting our final verdict part 3? Last week we found that God is on trial because of a universal accusation by Lucifer that God is unfair and unjust. As a result, we are all involved in a judgment of God’s character in which some w…

Once in a while we have a deadline to meet and there does not seem to be enough time to do what is required to get the job done.  At that point if we have something that competes for our attention we may not feel like spending the time on that interruption of our schedule.

Each generation knows best how to fix the problems of the world. Younger groups will say that the problems are obvious and so the solutions are clear as well. While older groups will note the progress made and say the work is hard to do, but the fight must go on.  In addition to this, an old…

We don’t know a lot about heaven, just some things. Some people get caught up in the physical descriptions of it, such as the streets of gold and the pearly gates. Even these tell us that we need to be thinking about heaven in a different way.

We all make many mistakes in life.  Someone has said, “To err is human but to really foul things up requires a computer.” We are imperfect, and we react imperfectly to others imperfections. It is natural for us to want to push back when someone pushes us. The result of this, in time, may lea…
