And we will look at how this led to John writing his letter to that church.'
"In one of our most important Universal History episodes yet, Richard Rohlin takes us through the origin of nationalism, what nations are, what they need to exist, and where they come from. How do these narratives about identity fit into what we have been calling Universal History? And how can we properly participate in the world around us?"
It does not take much comparison to see how Killers of the Flower Moon, The Osage Murders is very much like the "Black Wall Street Massacre" that took place in Tulsa Oklahoma in 1921. Native Americans and Black Americans have long been the targets of evil and greed in America. The plight of Native Americans even today is tragic. Black Americans continue to die in police shootings and other violence...

Fatal Fictions of Our Time Today most people are unconcerned about eternity, unconcerned with God, sin, and the second coming of Christ. These are fatal fictions. Judgement is at our door! Do we notice? Let us then eat, drink and tell stories, laugh, watch TV, marry and give in marriage unmindful and unprepared for anything.
Next to God, the mother's power for good is the strongest known on earth. Her smile, her encouragement, may be an inspiring force. Her influence will reach on through time into eternity Ellen G White.
We live in a culture of entitlement. The family, mothers and fathers have been degraded and diminished. But the family was God's idea and blessing for us. So on Mother’s Day, it’s too easy to believe the marketing slogans that we are entitled to feel significant and worthy through elaborate displays of appreciation...
I have used the excuse of I am to busy to get out of doing many things and so have you. Perhaps I really was too busy but ultimately that is often a case of us being to lazy (or to tired, I get it) to make good choices. No one complains about life being to slow! Recent surveys discovered these averages among adults, Social media: 5 hours 32 minutes..
I grew up in Texas and remember watching Clifton Chenier play Zydeco on TV. Those were the days of three TV networks, the world was a lot smaller then. This music genre is full of the energy and flavor we find in that area of our nation. To begin to understand the region we should look briefly at the language and history.
Has America decayed to such a point that a small minority of rebellious citizens is holding sway over the nations future? Most of you are just trying to make ends meet, make a living, survive your adversities, feed your children etc.

For far to long our American culture has willfully placed profits over the welfare of the people in our communities. The government through programs like "Obama Care" has mde it impossible for helath care systems to make mental health care profitable. Yet the health care systems themselves will not relinquish any of their profits to help the communities with those in need of mental health care. As God has been systematically removed from society and the family is no longer dominant in culture..
All of you know as burned out, frustrated and distracted Americans how difficult it is for most to give any attention to Holy Scripture. We have so filled our lives with what we consider necessary that God and His Word have been given the status of lesser importance. As our cultural significance has faded and churches have in many cases been reduced to social centers that talk about Jesus we find ourselves in a pickle! Now we can blame "the church" and by that i mean the pastors, the..
To whom do YOU belong? Have you started your day weary and burned out thinking it is you and only you that must make your day and your life work? Alan Noble helps us see that this cultural fallacy is killing us because the reality is we do not belong to ourselves and no matter how smart or strong we are we cannot make it through life under our own power, we will fail or worse. You belong to God!..

In my retirement I teach one day a week as an art teacher at a local private Christian school. One of my main concerns especially in art class is the inability of most children to think independently, to make a decision on thei own. Some children simply freeze up or just sit and look at the paper. This coddling of our children is making them incacpable of independent thinking. If they continue this way they will be dysfunctional adults incacpable of self-reliant thinking and behavior..
Most of us have challenges in life. physical, mental or both. And many of us complain about circumstances that we should not complain about. God gives each of us our place in time and in the family, community and circumstances He desires us to be in within His story, the story of Christ over all things. We should take time to consider and help those whom God places in front of us no matter their situation or circumstance..
If you haven't noticed lately people are getting shot and killed for knocking on the wrong door or pulling into the wrong driveway. More and more guns don't seem to be protecting Americans in any way. And the sad reply of the NRA that all we need is more good guys with guns has become the cry of fools. I believe we all should have our second amendment right to bear arms. .
