  • Worry is unscriptural

    We have the notion that things can give us peace, but in reality they create worry. Do you remember the thrill of your first car? You could not rest until your name was on the Bill of Sale. Then you discovered the headache of taking care of your car and meeting the payments.

    King Solomon said, “People who work hard sleep well, whether they eat little or much. But the rich are always worrying and seldom get a good night’s sleep” (Ecclesiastes 5:12 NLT).

  • Fear not - even when times are grim

    Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of this prophecy and keep those things which are written in it, for the time is near. Revelation 1:1-3

    John wrote to disclose the revelation he had of Jesus Christ and the intense spiritual warfare the church would face before Christ’s ultimate victory over the enemy. John’s revelation contains many images and symbols to help us understand the otherwise indescribable spiritual events he saw.

  • Christianity chosen from many options

    Do you have a religion? I do. I follow Christianity. Some people follow Islam. Others follow Buddhism. These are religions worth learning about.

    It was during the middle ages that Christianity became popular. It became a political power in Western Europe in 500 A.D. Christians believe that Jesus, the son of God, was sent to Earth and died on the cross to save humanity. Through faith in Jesus, one can be saved from God’s punishment. Believers go to Heaven and have eternal life with God. This is very similar to another religion, Islam.
