Know to believe vs. knowing

It is said that if we "believe on the Lord Jesus Christ" we will be saved.  (Acts 16:31)  We seem to take this and similar declarations as an imperative to declare the fact to others; however, this may not be helpful.  It is not in knowing how salvation works but in actually trusting Jesus that we are saved.  Faith, belief, trust: these are not conceived by a comma

I Can Breathe

The Allure of Non-belief

I recently read the book Science's Blind Spot: The Unseen Religion of Scientific Naturalism by Cornelius Hunter, and it was an enlightening experience.

Isn't this What it is All About?

I came across this article on CNN just a few minutes ago.  I thought this was an exceptional use of the internet for helping people in need.    Maybe this is also the answer to keeping more government out of our lives.  What a great idea.
