A recent Canadian survey conducted by the polling firm, Environics, again demonstrates that it is a small minority of radicals who are trying to drive the political agenda.
A complaint commonly heard today is why does an all powerful God allow evil to happen on earth. Though this argument is often used by atheists to disprove the existence of God, Pew Research Center recently surveyed Americans to discover if the average person blames God when bad things happen? Its survey of 6,500 Americans in September, that included nearly 1,500 Evangelicals, found that the majority do not blame God when terrible things take place, such as the recent COVID pandemic that saw millions die. According to Christianity Today, the survey revealed several interesting results: 86% of Americans believe (44%) or somewhat believe (42%) that ‘sometimes bad things just happen.’ 70% of Americans believe that bad things are consequences of our own decisions; 70% also believe that bad things happen because of the way societies are structured; 70% believe men have a free will that allows them to act contrary to what God wants us to act; and 80% believe in the Biblical God (58%) or a higher power (22%), but say that suffering is …

As a long time coffee addict, anytime I see an article validating my addiction, of course I am going to write about it.
God has a plan and purpose for every person and I saw an example of this in a heartwarming story involving Doug Provenzano who coaches football in the West Valley Army Youth football in Litchfield Park, Arizona. Faithit writes that Provenzano has coached hundreds of kids (5 to 14 years of age) over the years, but in a post on Facebook, he wrote of one young boy that God sent into his life. God had a plan and a purpose for Provenzano. In 2016, a young third-grader named Marquise showed up with a tattered shirt, one sock, and a “hair cut that was 5 months past due.” Marquise asked if Provenzano could teach him how to play football. Provenzano said he could, but added that the program was expensive, and he needed to know where Marquise’s parents were. The young boy said: “My mom died and I don’t know where dad is, but my Auntie takes care of me.” As he heard that story, God immediately spoke three words to Provenzano, revealing the unique purpose …

We all know the name “Kyle Rittenhouse” by now. Only a few teenagers have become as famous as him, in modern times. He is probably as well known as Greta Thunberg, who made a speech at the United Nations, and she was invited at the age of fifteen. Kyle Rittenhouse walked alone, into a dangerous riot, with a loaded gun, and he was seventeen. If he was my son, and I saw him walking out with a gun, I would call him back and tell him to stay home. I am not choosing sides in the arguments about his trial, I just think some things are too dangerous for a boy acting alone, with a gun. Apparently he shot three people, and two of them died. We know there was a trial by jury, and Kyle was acquitted on all charges. This has produced and explosion of arguments, and much celebrating on one side and intense anger on the other side. So, what should we, think? I am speaking as a Christian. My best advice, …
