    † † † † A HUMBLE SPIRIT It's always surprising to me when someone, in an honest and unguarded moment, confides that God could never use THEM. They may keep up appearances most of the time, but, down deep, they just don't feel worthy. Have you ever felt that way? If so, you're in luck; God places a high value on humility! In fact, your sincere recognition of your own need may just be the key that opens the door to a deeper, more genuine and rewarding spirituality.

He is a realist, a man who is shattered in his faith after witnessing the arrest and death of Jesus....

Although it is inadmissible as evidence in court, even the proponents of lie detector testing agree that it is not always accurate.
