I believe the Divine sacred is something more powerful than anything on earth.
Not necessarily in a physical sense but more in a spiritual. I feel that the
youth of today, more than any other time in the world's history, needs to know
something about what their parents and ancestors have found in religion. As we

sense the falling away from the good life Jesus has taught us. I remember when
was a little boy my father always made me attend every funeral that happened to
family or friends, even if I didn't know them. I remember always asking my
father if the deceased went to heaven or hell? My father would always tell me

It's far easier for humanity to accept that they will go o...
For over 2000 years has existed as an organized religion. By religion we mean that it has a concept of the profane, the sacred, and approaches to the sacred. It has been established in India, China, Japan and other eastern cultures for almost 2000 years and has gained a strong foothold in North America and Europe in the past few centuries. Howe...
"OVERWHELMED BY A RELENTLESS GOD" The passages of scripture in Job is not often preached in the church at large, and I believe it is so because to understand it, you must know something deeper about God and His direct interaction with us. And certainly on this occasion with God and Job, you can believe I have never heard anyone say that they wis...
In today's view of anti-Semitism, the most significant anti-Semitic movement was World War II and the Holocaust, however, all throughout history, a prejudice against the Jewish people has been present that might have led to this genocide. How could so many people be blind to this mass murder without having a feeling of self-reproach? In the New T...
