A Prayer for Adversity

A young nation has experienced major battles in the past and by God’s divine intervention has been able to overcome and be victorious.  With the crumbling of the family and its repercussions, our nation may be in the midst of the most threatening battle to date.  A whole generation became victim to an extraordinary cultural …

Isn’t Christianity for the weak-minded? How can I know Christianity is true?

Scientific facts rest on evidence.  Our human senses grasp the evidence and we come to believe that fact.  Faith goes a step further. It is being sure of what we hope for and certain in what we do not see. I think it is safe to say that there is always a “leap” to believe …

The new year is upon us and we can only wonder what 2010 will bring.  Last year at this time, the nation welcomed a new president.  There was optimism and hope that a new man with new ideas will finally be an answer.  It’s a year later, and people are already questioning his ideas and …

Handel’s Messiah: magnificently written by a broken man

The story behind the composer, George Frideric Handel, in regards to the masterpiece, “Messiah” comes from the hands of a man who at the time was broken financially, physically and emotionally.  This came to the light in a recent article by Marvin Olasky entitled “God’s Hand is in …
