• Posted On 05/24/2019 - When my son Jonathan was in his early teens, we were driving somewhere when he turned to me and said, “Dad, what is a conscience?” Defining a conscience isn’t as easy as it might seem. I tried to illustrate it for him. I explained that a conscience is a lot like our ability to feel pain. If you’re walking barefoot and start to step on a piece of glass, you sense pain. You get that signal from the brain telling you to stop. It’s a warning of something that could be far worse. And though you…

  • Posted 04/18/2019.   The teenager whose supernatural recovery is at the center of the new film Breakthrough says he hopes his story helps moviegoers understand that miracles do happen and God does exist. John Smith, now 18, fell through an icy pond in 2015 and was thought dead until his mother began praying for him at the hospital. Only then did his heart start beating. Incredibly, 45 minutes had passed between the time he plunged through the ice and the moment he regained his pulse. CPR and shock treatments had failed.

And they’re never going to read the Bible again.As Jesus hung on the cross, he cried out, “My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?” (Matthew 27:46; Mark 15:34 NKJV). I don’t think these were the words of someone in doubt. Jesus asked why, but he also cried out to the Father.People have asked me if it is wrong to ask God why. Some would say it is, claiming it indicates a…

  • Posted on 05/11/2018 - Last year the film “Wonder Woman” was released. But the Bible talks about a real wonder woman: the woman of Proverbs 31. The woman described in this passage is the longest description of any family member in the Bible. That should tell us a lot about what God thinks of mothers and how important they are. The chapter is an acrostic, which means that each verse begins with the succeeding letter of the Hebrew alphabet.
