We discussed if there are angels. More importantly, is there a God who made the universe? I posted about this experience on October 8, … [Read more...]

Is the Holy Spirit Neglected in the Book of Revelation?

Throughout much of the history of Christianity, the Holy Spirit mentioned so often in the New Testament was not mentioned very often by Christians.

No Future One-World Government Until Jesus Returns

Americans No Long Dominate Golf

Even though golf started in the old country--Scotland--the U.S. has been the most golfing nation in the world after the twentieth century got under way.

But no more.Case in point: in the Summer Olympic Games in Rio last week, golf was re-introduced for the first time in 108 years. The format was individual competition in a standard tournament format of four rounds, thus 72 … [Read more...]
