Leave a comment

Are you a doubting Thomas? Do you need proof that Jesus is real? Do you need to be able to see and touch the holes the nails made? (John 20:19 – 31) It can be hard to believe in something you can’t physically see or touch. But it can be done.

I come from a time when there were only two ways of doing things: the right way and the wrong way. Every choice had only two options: right or wrong. Every act was either good or evil.Where did this law come from? It came from a strong moral foundation, handed down to us from our parents, handed to them from their parents, eventually leading back to God, who was (and still is) the ultimate authority.

If you are one who likes to make resolutions, then this is a good time for that as well.

Doing the best I can

Last week I talked about whether or not this was the beginning of the end times. Evidently the Rapture was supposed to happen last week (a fact I didn’t know about when I wrote that post) and I have to assume either it didn’t happen or I wasn’t chosen.  More

Is this the beginning of the end? I am beginning to think it could be. More
