    "A sword will pierce your own soul too, so that the thoughts of many might be revealed." Have you ever wondered what it would be like if people's real motives could be on public display? Some people who aren't usually well thought of could be shown to have pure hearts, wanting good for everyone, envy, wanting others to lose the good things they have, for no one. This is called "simplicity"."I don't need all that, I can handle things on my own." But what would you do if you ever got to the point of "how could it have...

    So I'm watching a rerun of the Big Bang Theory, one of the first with the Bernadette character. She is wearing a crucifix around her neck. Then I caught a more recent episode. No crucifix. It has been replaced by some sort of pendant. I don't watch the Big Bang Theory very often, but that did strike me as curious.

    IT'S a miracle! A four-hour miniseries on Lourdes — the French shrine-town famous for its mysterious ability to cure disease and infirmity— is about to go into production. A&E, the cable channel, is underwriting the project. "Lourdes" will follow the true story of a terminally ill surgeon who is healed after taking the waters at Lourdes. The doctor returns later to investigate the miraculous power of the site. The series' producer, Paul Lussier, who also did ABC's "Blackout," has been granted access to the Lourdes archives. The archives supposedly contain details of the 68 cases that have been classified as...
  • What is a Prophet? - (Amazing article by Barbara Stock!)

    The world is hearing much these days about "prophets." Was Moses a prophet? Was Jesus a prophet? Was Mohammed a prophet? Interestingly, Moses, the man credited with leading the children of Israel out of Egypt is considered a great prophet by followers of Islam. Moses, or Musa, is mentioned often in the Quran. Much of the Quran is based on the teachings of Moses as opposed to the teaching of Jesus. Jesus is considered by Christians to be the Son of God. He was the Messiah all prophets before him, including Moses, had predicted changing them from mere "predictors" into...
