  • Love

    Love

    I would like to talk about love. Of course we all know the Scripture there is about love in 1 Corinthians 13: 4-8: 4 Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, 5 Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; 6 Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth; 7 Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things. 8 Charity never faileth: but wheth...

  • Evolution and the Last Supper

    Evolution and the Last Supper

    Would anyone of even minimal intellect believe that Da Vinci's "The Last Supper" was not the work of an artist--but rather came into existence by random chance? What are the odds of a series of strong winds blowing paint onto the canvas in just the right amount and combination of pigments--striking the canvas randomly, yet precisely creating the portrait exactly as we know it? Not likely, right?

    Well, what if we gave it 15 billion years or so to happen? Heck, let's be generous, and...

    Pain

    Psalm 6 1 O LORD, rebuke me not in thine anger, neither chasten me in thy hot displeasure. 2 Have mercy upon me, O LORD; for I am weak: O LORD, heal me; for my bones are vexed. 3 My soul is also sore vexed: but thou, O LORD, how long? 4 Return, O LORD, deliver my soul: oh save me for thy mercies' sake. 5 For in death there is no remembrance of thee: in the grave who shall give thee thanks? 6 I am weary with my groaning; all the night make I my bed to swim; I water my couch with my tears. 7 Mine eye ...

  • Tony's Triumph over Temptation

    Tony's Triumph over Temptation

    Tony smiled to himself as he drove West, and put his foot down a bit harder on the accelerator. This was one of the days he left home and family responsibilities behind for 30 hours and lived for himself as well as, hopefully, earning more money for his family business. There was his work to take care of tomorrow, but tonight was for Elaine and love; his pulse quickened as he thought of the joys to come. A few days later a business acquaintance of Tony’s invited him to a dinner where John,...

  • The Coming of the Absaloms

    The Coming of the Absaloms

    Introduction When it comes to the key events that helped to create the society that emerged in the American/Western World in the wake of the Second World War - arguably the most traumatic event in history - many would be inclined to cite the 1950s as the fulcrumic decade, and according to Charles Ealy, author of the article "Seeds of Change Sown in 1955", published in Nov. 2005 in The Dallas Morning News, that's especially true of its midpoint. For all that, though, it's the mythic 1960s, with ...

  • Good Deeds

    Good Deeds

    When was the last time you were shocked or surprised by an awful event? There isn’t a day that goes by without something heinous making the front page of the newspaper. People have become numb. We’ve cultivated a society that thrives on negativity and leans toward believing the absolute worst about someone or something. In spite of our obvious conditioning, every once in a while someone will do something that is absolutely amazing. If you look hard enough, you might just see something that reaches...

  • Praising God in trials

    Praising God in trials

    I have been pondering this question for the last few nights... Should one praise God only when it's going well with you? Or is it equally important while you're not doing so great? Maybe it is even more important to praise Him while you're going through a rough patch... I have been in so much pain lately that it's difficult for me right now. Sleepless nights, lack of appetite and more of those things that pain can do to you. So at night, when my husband Charles is asleep, I tend to think about...

  • Aftermath

    Aftermath

    This morning, I read about a family in Christchurch. They live in a nice house in a nice neighborhood and at first glance, everything looks okay. Take a closer look, however, and you find out that not all is well. They have no electricity, for instance, and no running water. To be able to take care of 'important' matters, they dug a hole in the yard, put a screen around it, and provided a little shovel just in case. When asked about their thoughts for the future, their answer spoke volumes: "we're...

  • Rejoicing Essential part one

    Rejoicing Essential part one

    In order to lay a good foundation for several different points about joy I must first undo a teaching that is just slightly off. Have you ever heard someone say “There is nothing you can do to please God” ? What they really mean is there is no way you can ever earn Heaven. You can never be good enough to be worthy of Heaven. This part is true. You are not good enough and hands down salvation and entrance into Heaven is only through the Cross. But the error is when a Christian, who is not relying...

  • Worldly Success vs. Christian Excellence

    Worldly Success vs. Christian Excellence

    Introduction

    It is a constant theme taught in homes across America from the time our children are in diapers until the time they head off to college in order to pursue higher forms of education. It is called climbing the proverbial ladder of success. This education is considered the caveat to a successful and prosperous future. What does this successful future entail you may ask? Most likely what the majority have in mind is material in nature. However, it is not only about the nicest

  • It's Time - 22 April 2017

    "It's Time", 22 April. Dit was 'n mooi en 'n groot dag, maar watter perspektief moet mens koester?

  • Another dream combined with more miracles
    by miepie
    This is the sequence to my previous article "Miracles and a dream". I had another dream a few nights ago. It was about Charles and I taking a day's trip on the train. We went all the way down south to see as much of the country as possible. Train cards are available at local stores that are less expensive in the summer and fall. Two people can then travel across the whole country cheaper than the price of a single fair from the train station in winter or spring. I also dreamed that we we...

  • Miracles and a dream
    by miepie
    Daddy gave me a dream. It was about the Pharisee and the man who smote his breast (Luke 18). He put me on the top of the Temple, and let me see them clearly. I asked questions and He answered me. It was so beautiful that I just enjoyed being up there. Daddy explained a lot to me and then I indulged those answers with hunger for more. I didn't understand why God gave me that opportunity until a few days later. While I was having a little argument with my husband, (happens in the best marriages too),...

  • How the Judges of Israel Overlapped
    by Cyberseeker
    The history of the Judges bridges the time from the Exodus to the Kingdom of Israel, however, when we sum up the rule of the Judges, a problem arises. Add them all up, plus the times of oppression such as the Midianite period of seven years, then tack on the forty years in the desert plus the reigns of Saul and David, and what do we get? 640! On face value, that's about 160 years longer than the Exodus to Solomon as stated in the official record of the Kings. (1 Kings 6:1) There is a reason. T...

  • Two spirits, one space
    by Senormac
    When I moved to this area of Oregon from Southern California, I was keenly aware of the different "spirits" that were here. People are friendly but also people are into a lot of weird occult, lifestyle, and earth energy practices. The tree huggers shop at the same organic grocery stores that the Buddists shop at and the Amazonian mystism followers ride their bicycles on the same path as cannabis growers. In the yearly city celebration parade a more eclectic group of folks you will not see, from...

  • A time to pray
    by Graham Hickey
    Is it a time to pray?

    Very often as I journey through the day I hear of groups that are setting up against the Christian faith, or I see other faiths doing things really well. This screams out at me. As a Christian church these things can be missing in our worship and life, and perhaps through highlighting other faiths. Is God is trying to compel us to act? Jesus prayed before he started his earthly ministry (before he was baptised), and before he was arrested to be crucified. ...
