Of all the images we find of our solar system, not one of them is to scale. In this video, these gentlemen travel to the desert and create a model of our solar system. They scale the earth to the size of a marble, which means the radius of the solar system from the sun to Neptune is 7 miles long!
I watched this video the other day with Neurosurgeon Michael Egnor. He explained how scientific studies have shown people have consciousness even when they are clinically brain dead. He explains this documents the existence of a soul.
Most of the time, I receive really nice emails from folks. Yet, there are times when I receive what I call, “Nastygrams”. Today, I received a Nastygram which I will share in part with you. Why? Someone else may feel the same way, so this is the best way for me to address anyone who thinks like this reader. There will be some other nuggets for everyone else along the way.
Have you really thought about that statement?
We are supposed to be a reflection of Jesus Christ, but I feel many of us forget that today. Especially in the online world which has given place to rude behavior, yes even among “Christians”.
I have a personal story for you today. I originally planned to post another article I wrote this morning titled, “People See Who Jesus Is By Looking At Our Lives”. I proofread that one yesterday morning, called it good, and headed down to the dealership with my son to have some maintenance items done on our truck. Little did I realize how that article would directly apply to myself that day.
I received an email from a reader who was a bit upset by some of our commentary. While I will withhold the name of the individual, I am going to share the email and my response as it may benefit our audience.
How many times have you tried to tell someone something about God’s Word and the people close their ears?
I mean, it sounds just a little different than what they know to be true, so it must be wrong.
Yesterday, after we completed our family Bible study in the book of Joshua, I stepped outside and found my children waiting for me. My daughter asked me, “Daddy, what do you think is outside of space?” I loved the question as it was one I had around her age. Her question was no doubt triggered by a conversation we had a few days prior about the universe and what we learned in Joshua. How God held the sun still so the Israelites could assist with destroying the enemy, (Joshua 10:12-14).
There was an article out today about LGBT activists forcing Christians out of adoption services. When we see headlines like that we should ask ourself, how did we get here?
Reminder: Our 2017 calendar is still valid as Spring starts on March 20th this year. If you are a new reader, browse the links in this post to learn about Passover and understand why we should celebrate it as Christians.
