Many cry out to God (as I once did): “Why don't You just show Yourself? Why don't You just speak? Then I would believe!” It seems logical, right? If God would just show Himself visually, and speak audibly, then everyone would believe. I don't think that anymore. This line of reasoning assumes that people are … Continue reading Why Doesn’t God Just Show Himself?
I’m sure it’s the little boy still hiding in my 57-year-old paralyzed body, but I enjoy trying to pull off a good April Fools Day joke on Mary. In our thirty-two years of marriage, I probably have a 75% success rate.
It can be a real challenge to carry out a successful April fools joke with ALS because I can’t speak so I have to attempt to fool her via email or using my computer’s (no inflection) robot voice (the only “voice” I’ve had for the last twenty years).
As I’m sure you know, April Fools Day and Easter (the day we celebrate Christ’s resurrection from the dead) fall on the same day this year. The two have not fallen on the same day since 1956.
Are Christians foolsfor believing that Christ was literally raised from the dead?
Atheists, agnostics and those of other faiths, believe it…

by Adam Hellyer There’s no such thing as a dead atheist. Atheist or agnostic, believer or unbeliever, all are appointed to die once and then appear before the judgment seat of Christ. Under those circumstance, every knee will bow, everyone will believe. But, while atheism is non-existent in eternity, many still hold to it in this life. Ideas of atheism vary between different cultures and languages, but generally atheism is seen as the belief that there is no … Continue reading Understanding Atheism
I almost made it through a whole year without being hospitalized or having any additional health problems. Almost. Then, with just a few days left in 2016, I caught a cold. The “commoncold” is not much more than an annoyance for otherwise healthy people, but for someone like me with weakened breathing muscles and only 30% of my lungs functioning, the common cold is much more than an annoyance.
On the morning of the last day of the year, I was having an extremely difficult time breathing even wearing my breathing mask. In addition to that, I couldn’t keep anything down. I was a mess, more than usual. Mary and I both assumed it was pneumonia again so she called 911 and within minutes we were in an ambulance en route to the hospital. ALS has brought us one adventure after another over the last 20 years.

There are many people who believe in the existence of God. They believe with conviction that there is a Creator God who created the whole universe and man is the masterpiece of His creation.
At the same time there are millions of people who deny the existence of God. They believe that man is the result of an evolutionary process that lasted a long time. Some of them like very much to mock Christians asking them if they believe in the existence of God.
One day, an atheist met with an American farmer who was a servant of God. The atheist asked him:
-Do you think God exists?
-Yes, of course. I think God exists, the farmer replied.
-But why do you believe in Him? Have you ever seen Him?
-No, I haven’t,the farmer answered again. But I haven’t seen a Japanese in my life, and I think there are…
