"Are The Fish Sinners?" - Bill Nye

by Kristen Rosser cross posted from her blog Wordgazer's WordsA lot of people have been talking this week about the Bill Nye/Ken Ham Debate on Creationism vs. Evolution.  So I decided to weigh in with where I stand on this issue.When I converted to Christianity at the age of 15, I was taught that one of the things I had to embrace if I was going to follow Jesus was young-earth creationism.  The Bible "clearly" taught that God had made the earth in six 24-hour days and that the earth is 6000 to 10,000 years old.

Fascinating Womanhood Review: Happiness

 by Samantha Fields cross posted from her blog Defeating The Dragons  So, it’s been a little while since we’ve delved into Helen Andelin’s world. We’re about halfway through the book, and we’ve reached the point where we’re going to start seeing a lot more ridiculous statements.

Quotes1-300x250

by Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies - The Price of Greatness is Responsibility When a new baby is born and we take this precious life into our arms, we are not only overcome with awe and delight, but the enormity of the task that lies ahead. We are responsibility for keeping this little life alive. We have to nurse, nourish, love, protect, care for and train this child until they one day leave our home. Even then we'll never stop praying for them. Even then, their trials and challenges, are still our concerns. Have you felt this weight of responsibility weighing upon you? It is always there, even in the midst of the joys, isn't it? … [Read more...]
