    Hi Grace!
    I an the same way, although I am getting better. I always believe people are honest and good, but I have been burned a couple times.

    I agree our focus should be on God. I do wonder, however, why the big bang “theory” was stated as if it were fact? In the show Mr. McNeally speaks of those who thought wrongly for over 1000 years. I think a theory should not have been stated as if it were fact . It makes it sound as if the church has accepted this theory as truth. If that’s not how it was intended it should have been stated as such.

    Thank you Steven! You make a good point about activism.

    Thank you, Steven. I love your line either they will learn or you will. I appreciate the feedback.

    So true Doug. We see often in scripture that leaders can be evil. We are told to accept them as leaders and be subject to them, that God places them in their positions. (Romans 13:1) However, we should still not follow them down an evil path. We see this example set by Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, as well as Daniel. God has a plan and sometimes He allows evil to reign for varying reasons.

    Hi Rene!
    May I suggest you read this article which may answer your questions.

    We must be careful, man influences where they can. One of the most popular online versions recently removed the word Sabbath from their Bible version. This can only be an attempt to declare Sunday instead of Saturday. Trying to erase the truth is something we continually fight against. Keep your eyes open and retain written Bibles at home that no one can fool with.

    Hello Jim,
    I understand your stance on calling things pagan, but honestly, if it isn’t right why would you do it? Matthew 5:18 states: “For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one: tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.” That’s pretty plain to me. The law says to keep the Sabbath for instance. Does that mean if I keep Sunday it’s okay because I mean well? I think the law is pretty plain.

    If I keep Christmas, clearly not a sanctioned day to honor God is that okay? Again I think not. The commandment clearly states to not have any foreign gods before Him. (Exodus 20:3) Shoving a holiday that is filled with rituals to honor foreign gods fits right into that idol worship as far as I am concerned. Even if someone keeps Christmas without belief in God does that make it okay for those who do have faith? That makes no sense. If you want to stay close with family and friends you can do it on Thanksgiving or during one of God’s appointed Holy Days instead.

    As for your comment about Paul and the Jews, you said it yourself. It was the traditions of the Jewish people that were to be stopped not the commandments of God.

    Hi Terry!
    I am glad you enjoyed the article. We all fall once in a while, the point is too get up and try not to do it again. :)

    Hi Val, I have had a chaotic year and I realize how easy it is to be distracted. Our faith is most tested when we are at our lowest points.

    Hi John!
    Yes, it was at the Dells. How awesome to see such growth in the orchestra, it surely did have an impact and really warmed up such a cold building. ;)

    I am sorry you had this experience Elizeth. The idea of hitting you with books must have been very scary indeed. Healing is from God, not man. Name calling and scary happenings are not how God works.

    Thank you very much. My prayer to God is that my articles be helpful.

    I see what you’re saying John, but I believe even when given a command we must choose to obey it. If not, then there is a punishment.
