Recognizing Greatness

It was January 12th, 2007, on a cold winter morning in a Washington, D.C. Metro station. A man was actually playing a violin for the roughly 1000 people who walked by during rush hour. Hardly anyone noticed him. In fact, Gene Weingarten, who wrote the piece for the Washington Post said, “Three minutes went by before something happened. Sixty-three people had already passed when, finally, there was a breakthrough of sorts. A middle-age man altered his gait for a split second, turning his head to notice that there seemed to be some guy playing music. Yes, the man kept walking, but it was...

44 Questions Christian’s can’t answer

The question of evil and why there is suffering in this world is something we all struggle with, especially if you believe, (as I do), in an all knowing, and all powerful God. Romans 8:28 explains that everything works together for the good of those who love Him and are called by Him.

Easter Island

Most of us have seen the pictures of the Easter Island stone heads and wonder who and why a civilization would have created such statues. Easter Island is found off the coast of South America, specifically the Chilean coast. Easter Island is one of the most remote locations on earth. Yes, even more remote than the North or South Poles. One would have to travel nearly 2000 miles to find another human settlement, or neighbor to borrow a cup of sugar. If not for the island heads, Easter Island would be just another Pacific island among the thousands that dot the Pacific landscape....

Torpedo 8

There was a little old lady who would come out every morning on the steps of her front porch, raise her arms to the sky and shout, “Praise the Lord!” Well, one day an atheist moved into the house next door. Over time, he became irritated at the little old lady. So every morning he would step out onto his front porch and yell after her, “There is no God!” Time passes with the two of them carrying on this way every day. Then one morning in the middle of winter, the little old lady stepped onto her front porch and shouted, “Praise the Lord! Lord, I have no food and...
