    In Hebrews 11:1 in the Bible, faith is described as the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Now, according to a new study by Georgetown University neuroscientists, the strength of one's faith in God is likely linked to the brain.In their study, Implicit pattern learning predicts individual differences in belief in God in the United States and Afghanistan, published this month in the journal Nature Communications, the neuroscientists found that an individuals ability to unconsciously predict complex patterns, through an ability known as implicit pattern learning, had a strong correlation with the strength of their...

    You can get lost in the Auschwitz Memorial Twitter feed. When I visited that infamous German WWII concentration camp during the summer before our last presidential election, I had the overwhelming feeling that we were forgetting its terrible example -- that we could fall into such evil again. With the recent violence in the streets, in homes, on television and even in human hearts, that's become a familiar feeling. The power of the Auschwitz Memorial's social media presence is in the names and faces. At least 6 million people died in the Holocaust. They were men, women and children. They...

    Dear friend, there is an ETERNAL ETERNITY before us which is ETERNALLY established in ETERNAL RIGHTEOUSNESS (Rev. 21, 22:1-5)! That is the ETERNAL BIG PICTURE and at the heart of John 3:16-17! The events, societies, cultures, and "isms" of today are just like a vapor that is soon FOREVER gone (Eccl. 1:1-3, Rev. 20:11)! There is no Marxism, Republic Democracies, Socialism, Communism, Progressivism, Conservatism, etc. in Heaven ONLY Almighty God's ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS Kingdom and RIGHTEOUSNESS in and through Jesus Christ (Rev. 21,22:1-5)! Jesus Christ is indeed the ultimate divider of men (Matt. 10:34, Luke 12:51, John 3:16-17, 1 John 5:12,...

    Some years ago, while flying back to Seattle from Washington, D.C., I sat next to a young marine, who, as we were landing, asked if I would permit him to accompany me to my shuttle, as he had a personal matter that was weighing heavily on his heart. While being in our nations capital I had already come into contact with many soldiers, all of whom I personally thanked for their service to our country, and all of whom were young enough to be my grandchildren. The young marine reached out to me, not unlike I had with my grandfather,...

    While on vacation last week, my husband and I visited places with inspiring natural beauty. We love nature, believing it is Gods handiwork on display. Only He could have created such extraordinary complexity and diversity with awesome precision connecting land, sea, and sky into one life-sustaining system. His perfection dispels any notion that Mother Nature just randomly appeared with no master plan.Then, at the end of our nature vacation, I received a ding. (Explained in Vol. 22 as the sound of a theme or verse(s) popping into my brain about which I feel called to write.)The ding was only one...

    EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: The US elections will be a contest not just between political figures and rival parties but between opposing worldviews. Bidens intention to Europeanize American democracy would leave the international system bereft of the democracy that saved humanity multiple times from the calamities wreaked upon it by European utopian thought. President Donald Trumps declaration in his Mount Rushmore speech of his intention to defend the traditional values of the United States, and Joe Bidens declaration (backed by Bernie Sanders) of his intention to bring about a transformation of the United States, indicate that the 2020 elections will not be,...

    Today we conclude a two-part Bible Study series. Part 1 explored what the Old Testament (Hebrew Bible) revealed about the Face of God, and in Part 2, we will discuss the New Testament. To recap, last week I quoted Shroud of Turin expert Russ Breault from his presentation, “The Seven Secrets of the Sacred Shroud” (accessed free with password: shroudencounter3768) when during “The Face” segment he says:“Something dramatically changed between the Old and New Testaments. In the Old, no one ever saw the face of God. In the New, everyone saw the face of Jesus. John [the Apostle] told us the glory of God was manifested...

    Democrats opening at least two caucus meetings during the Democratic National Convention (DNC) cut “under God” out of the Pledge of Allegiance, according to videos captured by CBN News’s David Brody. Both the Muslim Caucus meeting and the LGBT Caucus meeting began with truncated versions of the pledge. “I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the republic for which it stands, one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all,” delegate A.J. Durrani said, opening the DNC’s “Muslim Delegates Assembly.”According to Brody, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) and DNC Chairman...

Ecclesiastes 3:1 Introduction The very first word of the Torah indicates the awareness of the significance of time - בְּרֵאשִׁית - "in the beginning..." (Genesis 1:1), and according to Rabbinic tradition, the very first commandment given to the children of Israel after being delivered from Egypt was to sanctify the "New Moon" (Exodus 12:1-2), thereby causing the fledgling nation to depart from the solar tradition of the Egyptians (Ra worship) and to look to the moon for a new means of reckoning times and seasons....

    In the space of what feels like a breath, we went from the Greatest Generation to the legalization of infanticide, from a country with a singular and evolved moral code to the ripping down of the Ten Commandments in courtrooms across the country, from a rational acknowledgment of natural gender to drag-queen story hour at the public library. How in the world did this happen? Im saddened to say that some of the biggest players in this cultural catastrophe have been psychotherapists. My generation was bottle fed with the nectar of psychotherapy and a philosophy that presented itself as secular...

    President Trump on Thursday claimed presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, a practicing Catholic, is "against God" as he levied a stream of attacks on his likely opponent in the November election. Trump painted a grim picture of a Biden presidency during a rally-style speech to supporters on the tarmac of the Cleveland airport, claiming the former vice president would follow a radical agenda. "Take away your guns, take away your Second Amendment. No religion, no anything," Trump said, standing behind a podium with the presidential seal. "Hurt the Bible. Hurt God. Hes against God. Hes against guns. Hes against...

    Distance running with an upper-body amputation is a war against instability. Muscles can strain so much to compensate for the missing limb that they contort your spine, misalign your shoulders, and worsen your imbalance. In 2017, Ashley Jonesthen 15 years oldfaced a punishing return to high school sports following the amputation of her right arm. On the soccer field, she had collisions so violent that the pain would bring her to the brink of blackout. Later, during cross-country runs, the jostling of the amputation site intensified her phantom painwhich shed already rated 7 out of 10 on normal daysto as...

    I was listening to a Q&A podcast the other day at the gym and one of the questions was the familiar, Why would a loving God send people to Hell?Sometimes this question is asked by a person who is genuinely struggling to reconcile God and eternal punishment. Sometimes the question is posed by a hatetheist who has no interest in a real answer but is rather more concerned with throwing out a gotcha question whose answer (hopefully) helps solidify their already-decided position of non-belief. As I listened to the podcast, it occurred to me that in all the years Ive...

    The lack of belief in God is the source of much of our social ills. Here are some points why I believe this: 1) Without God, man falls back on himself, his ego, his desires and his will. There is no justice in the afterlife so man tries to get away with as much as he can in this life. There is no incentive for a family and everything is about avoiding onerous responsibility and short term profits. A live for today European attitude... because tomorrow we die. 2) Without God people that are inclined to religion, now see their...

    “Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. They may be more likely to go to Heaven yet at the same time likelier to make a Hell of earth. This very kindness stings with intolerable insult....
