  • God And Job And Suffering: All Is Well That Ends Well

    02/27/2021 8:27:11 AM PST · by JAG 5000 · 8 replies
    We hear a lot about God and Job's sufferings. The book of Job has 42 chapters and some 99% of the verses talk about Job's sufferings. However nobody knows how long Job suffered and some interpreters think it was a relatively short time. Some think Job suffered for a few months and others think Job suffered only for days. To the best of my knowledge all the events in the book of Job could have occurred within 30 days. If so, then Job suffered a very short time. But here is even better news: After Job suffered and endured his...

    "I am making everything new"__The Lord Jesus Rev.21:5 Nothing on this earth has the power to defeat the finished work of the Lord Jesus. "It is finished" said Jesus while on The Cross. Here are the most powerful finished events in all of human history. No power n the Universe can defeat these: {1} The Cross -- the power of reconciliation, forgiveness, and restoration -- "being justified by faith we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ" Romans 5:1 {2} The Resurrection -- the power of that Empty Tomb.

  • New conservative student newspaper at University of Chicago, The Chicago Thinker, raises hackles among free speech opponents there

    American Thinker ^ | 01/30/2021 | Thomas Lifson
    Until Evita Duffy, one of its founders, wrote at The Federalist about the controversy at the University of Chicago over continuing that school’s commitment to free speech, I had never heard of The Chicago Thinker. It is a conservative student newspaper that Duffy and a few others created last year. I have no idea if it took inspiration from this online journal but would be highly pleased if that were the case. Free speech and free thought are two sides of the same coin.An article titled “Instructing Insurrections: How UChicago Can Avoid Creating the Next Ted Cruz” was published on...
  • Silver Linings(?) On a Dark and Cloudy Day...

    And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. ( Romans 8:28)Could there be some silver linings on this dark and cloudy day? As a Christian, I do believe there are, as long as we have the courage to see them and rejoice for them. Now That Biden has taken office… We can now let go of our faith in “civic Religion” once and for all, and return to our true religion, (Christianity). I don’t blame anyone for being happy when Trump was elected....

    Influential backbench leader Sir Graham Brady has said that lockdown measures could be “removing hope” from Britons, criticising “pointless restrictions” that ban people from sitting on a park bench or taking more than one walk a day. Sir Graham, chairman of the 1922 Committee of all backbench Tory MPs, warned that the government and ministers need to recognise that “lockdown carries its own costs”

God is in the midst of her, she shall not be moved; God shall help her, just at the break of dawn. The nations raged, the kingdoms...

    COOK FOREST, Pennsylvania -- It has just finished snowing here, and the forest looks magical, draped in white. It takes on a silvery blue shine under the blue sky that emerged after the storm finished leaving its mark. The silence is soon broken by the crunching of snowshoes off in the distance. Southwest of here, a handful of anglers fishing the drift of the Slippery Rock Creek breaks the silence of the surrounding forest. At Laurel Hill, it is the rustling of the leftover fall leaves, softened by age and weather, under the weight of hikers' boots. Along the High...

    Dear friends, in such EXPONENTIAL lawless and godless days here in America; along with America's fate hanging in the balance and the Day of the Lord at our doorstep; there is ETERNAL HOPE, GRACE, and LOVE for any who will call upon the Name of the Lord and be delivered from their personal transgressions against their ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS Creator; and from Hell's ETERNAL separation from Him (Matt. 6:33; 7:13-14; John 1:12; 3:16-17; 36; 11:25-26; Acts 4:12; 16:30-34; Eph. 2:8-9; 1 John 5:13; Rev. 20:10-15; 22:11)!

    Dear "Freepers," No new article from me today. I'm taking the day off but I wanted to write something just for you. Y'know, a lot of you have messaged me privately to express appreciation for my articles and I love you for it. It's my pleasure to write for you. Writing is so enthralling, I'd rather write than eat. True! Maybe you message me privately because of the dynamic on this site. Other sites have trolls...easily ignored. This site is different. There's a spirit of toxicity that keeps the good people quiet. A very few will speak up or even...

    Teleios conducted a wellbeing survey with 1186 responses. The majority of responses were: female (68%), <30 years (76%), and primarily from the United States (40%) and Europe (16%). The respondents identified themselves as: evangelical Christians (33%), social Christians (29%), Christian seekers (5%) and non-Christians (33%). Interestingly, personal wellbeing was better among evangelical Christians compared to social Christians, Christian seekers or non-Christians (P=0.001). The findings for wellbeing were also supported by further results that evangelicals were more content (P=0.001), at peace (P>0.001), and joyful (P=0.002) than the other groups. This is the first survey, to our knowledge, evaluating wellbeing in young...

    "Tell me not, in mournful numbers, Life is but an empty dream! For the soul is dead that slumbers, And things are not what they seem. Life is real! Life is earnest! And the grave is not its goal; Dust thou art, to dust returnest,] Was not spoken of the soul. Not enjoyment, and not sorrow, Is our destined end or way; But to act, that each to-morrow Find us farther than to-day. Art is long, and Time is fleeting, And our hearts, though stout and brave, Still, like muffled drums, are beating Funeral marches to the grave. In the...

    Walking the streets of lower Manhattan for the first time in a long time, I was talking with a friend a few days ago. Over the course of 20 blocks or so, I would occasionally play with my facemask, to get a little extra air. Not take it off, not to pull it down, but pull it outward. I suspect that when I did that, my nose could have become exposed. The point of this story is, a woman coming toward us, but still quite far, started screaming at me. At first, I had no idea what was going on....

    A California church is making headlines after nearly 1,000 people showed up to be baptized on Saturday at Corona Del Mar State Beach in Newport Beach, California. Gina Gleason, church director at Calvary Chapel Church in Chino Hills, told CBN News that the event, which was a record showing of baptisms for the church, was absolutely "remarkable." "California may be experiencing a spiritual revival," Gleason said. "It's remarkable and a significant number." Normally, the church — which is led by Pastor Jack Hibbs — sees 300 people show up for baptisms, but Saturday was unique in that nearly 1,000 people...
