The “Fuzzy” Search

Never heard of it? I hadn’t either until the last update to our Bible program arrived. Right up front it was highlighted as a great new feature. A Fuzzy search. Of all the useless ideas that people can come up with, I recall thinking to myself. What could be the worth of a fuzzy search? … [Read more…]

The “Word” TRUE

Words communicate meaning. If they don’t they are useless. The “new’ idea that a word is however you want to define it may satisfy an individual but it doesn’t communicate a true thought or idea. A few terms in our language are absolutes. TRUE is one of them. You can change it to mean whatever … [Read more…]

Fully Equipped

magnificent Creator and Designer. People call it evolution? They just don’t want God! They don’t want to think of a power or authority above them! Look at this tiny creature, the Issus Leafhopper. From a human standpoint we would say it is impossible. A tiny creature like this leafhopper, only about a quarter inch long, … [Read more…]

The Night Life Will END

If there is anything I despise, it is a centipede. To go down to the basement in the evening and come upon a centipede—no he doesn’t bother you. He scoots for his life so fast that you can hardly see him go. But he was there enjoying the place, until I entered. A lot goes … [Read more…]

Faithful to the End

Military history is filled with tales of heroism and self-sacrifice, but that of Australian Edward “Teddy” Sheean stands out among them. Now, almost 78 years after the then 18-year-old sailor provided cover for his comrades to escape the Japanese planes overhead, Sheean has been awarded the Victoria Cross, the British Commonwealth’s highest honor for military … [Read more…]

Be A Love Slave

Israel had slaves. Slavery sounds like a bad thing, people being bought and sold like chattel? God designed the laws to put limits on slavery so that the treatment of slaves was restricted to what was humane and even considerate. It was not an oppressive slavery if the masters obeyed Israelite law. Critics challenge the … [Read more…]

Let’s Go Traveling!

Where would you like to go? Much traveling has been shut down, but there are still possibilities. What about a trip to Tokyo? Or Honolulu? Or Israel? No interest?
