Who Is Worthy?

John the Baptist was baptizing people in the Jordan River when, to his surprise, Jesus showed up. The actual wording of the text states, “the next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, ‘look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world.’” John 1:29 Later in verse thirty-five we […]

I’m reading the book, I Don’t Have Enough Faith to be an Atheist by Norman L Geisler and Frank Turek and would recommend it to anyone who has an interest in looking at the proofs for God’s existence. They point out that people reject God for one of three reasons. The first is an intellectual […]

Paul writes, “look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise men but as wise, making the most of the time, because the days are evil. Therefore […]

by Ladd

Life can become difficult very fast and often when we least expect it. Everything seems to be sailing along then “boom”; life unravels in a matter of moments.
