  • COLUMN: The day the sun stood still

    One day, the sun stood still (Joshua 10:10-14). There has been no day like that, before it or after it, the first time man commanded the solar system to stand still and it obeyed.

    At another time, God hearkened to Hezekiah and turned the solar system backward 10 degrees.

    God worked a powerful miracle in response to Joshua’s authority in prayer. In fact, Joshua spoke directly to the sun and moon, obviously at God’s command, and the delayed sunset allowed Israel to have revenge upon their enemies.

  • COLUMN: An honest day's work for an honest day's pay

    Many believe the Bible teaches it is wrong to be wealthy. They think "money is the root of all evil."

    But the Bible does not teach that. The Bible says, "the love of money is the root of all evil" (I Timothy 6:10).

    God is not opposed to wealth. When you read the Bible you are aware of many wealthy individuals. In today's way of figuring wealth Abraham would have been a millionaire. Then there is David, Solomon, Job and many other financially well-to-do Bible characters. It is the misuse of and the love of money that causes problems.
