WHY is the study of the Bible a dull, uninteresting, irksome task to most people -- done, if at all, only as a duty out of fear of a harsh God? Simply because people have not KNOWN God, or what He is like – and because they have never started to really UNDERSTAND the Bible!
Where is there Biblical authority for the celebration of Christmas? Does the Bible command Christians to observe the birthday of Christ? Strange as it may seem, there is no Scripture commanding Christians to observe a wintertime holiday season!Here is why!
This is the second of a two part series on Gender. In the previous post we had a look at True Womanhood. Now we will deal with the topic of Masculinity - God's way! As intimated previously, there seems to be huge confusion, in spite of overwhelming BIOLOGICAL CLUES, what gender role one should take on. A new "politically correct" phrase in use these days is "gender fluidity", suggesting that gender can be a choice, rather than something determined by the chromosome configuration at conception!

In a world getting crazier, it seems, almost minute by minute, it is a BLESSING just to know how things WILL eventually turn out!! This short post serves as an introduction to a video clip portraying, in a beautiful song, what the whole world can look forward to - COMING SOON!
Probably one of the most pondered issues of all would be: "The Meaning of Life"! The plethora of speculations and theories on this could likely fill a few volumes. Some hold to creation, others to evolution, and there are those who try to find a compromise between creation and evolution. Then there are those who claim we are "children of the stars", and that we were left here by a superior civilization a few galaxies, supernova's and wormholes away from us...
Has this ever happened to you: The light is red at an intersection, and you're waiting for green. You are probably on your way from work after a busy day, and you may be slightly pre-occupied, with the radio on in the background. You have your foot on the brake pedal, and out of the corner of your eye...
The Old Testament has very clear instructions about which animals are good for human consumption, and which are not. There are actually two passages in Scripture which point out the difference between the clean and unclean animals. But modern day mainstream Christianity will tell you that Christ did away with these "outdated laws".
Why do so many millions who read and study the Bible remain in ignorance of what it really says? Why do most students of religion never reap the blessings found in God's promises?
