    Rude and Sarcastic Christians

    Thank you for sharing this. I went through a similar experience with a Christian friend. It got to the point where I couldn't handle the multiple times per week two hour phone conversations anymore with the emotional dumping, so I made myself unavailable. At first she was very angry and I had to...

    What you'd imagine it to be like and what you'd like to do right after the rapture!

    I remember the feeling of visiting my grandma once a year (we'd fly out from Missouri to see her in California for a few weeks every summer) and the reunion of seeing her was so wonderful! Multiply that times infinity is what it will feel like in heaven!! There will be no more tears, but can...

    "My eyes are open to what's wrong with the church"

    What happened to pews, hymns, one organ, and the Bible. The church doesn't need more than people coming together and hearing sound teaching of the Word. All this reel-them-in with worldly stuff is what makes people come to church to be entertained instead of fed. My goodness. What times we are...

    Look What’s in Store for Public School Students in Illinois–YIKES!

    Plus, I wanted to add...today at the bookstore, some customers were discussing how 10 month old babies are given smartphones to watch videos to dumb them into silence, and how parents use phones to distract children into behaving in public instead of actually teaching them how to behave, listen...

    Is this the year for the big one?

    I agree, and I always love your posts!! They are so thoughtful and scriptural. This morning, I went to the beach for my morning walk and the waves and the ocean and the skyline just looked weird to me--strange, heavy, low--a pregnant pause; I've never gotten the heebie jeebies from the ocean...

    Look What’s in Store for Public School Students in Illinois–YIKES!

    My guess is yes. The tsunami of evil is too high now. We've left God out of everything for too long. With the millennial and current teen generation coming up as the most liberal generation in all of history, our society will only get more apathetic to evil. Just my personal opinion. I am not...

    Look What’s in Store for Public School Students in Illinois–YIKES!

    I am so grateful to my mom for homeschooling my four siblings and me! She instilled in all of us the importance of self-motivation, hard work, and keeping one's imagination and curiosity alive no matter what. I was homeschooled until sophomore year, and then spent my last three years at public...

    Russia Moves in on Sudan

    Hmm, I wondered how Cush would get roped into the Ezekiel War. It is interesting how things become more clear the closer we get to a destination.

    Church of Scientology Now Considers Actor Tom Cruise a ‘Deity’

    This is very sad. I am sorry to read that anyone thinks he or she is a deity. It will be a horrible awakening.

    Thank you, all, for your very wise, encouraging, and thoughtful responses. I am very grateful for you!

    How to encourage other believers when they believe in strange things?

    Please forgive me, or erase this thread if it is not in line with the forum. I have an older sister who is a believer, but she is very entrenched in Steve Quayle type of End Times beliefs. She believes that the CERN collider is releasing demons, etc., and I know that Steve Quayle does not...

    Hillsong writer reveals he's no longer a Christian: 'I'm genuinely losing my faith'

    At the Christian School I taught at briefly, we had chapel every Wednesday, and these types of worship songs were played. I worried about the emotional draw of these repetitive praise songs. I felt like I was losing my mind just hearing verses sung over and over again. The emotional frenzy...
