A Sad Story

There once was this young guy -- a nice fellow. He fell in love, got married. That was the good part. But then his wife dumped him. He got sad. He got mad.

Time went by and he got bitter. He walked away from God.

God told us, "Be tolerant of one another and forgive each other if anyone has a complaint against another. Just as the Lord has forgiven you, you also should forgive." He also said, "In your anger do not sin: Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry, and do not give the devil a foothold."

True Compassion

Consider a being so powerful he created the earth and sun and moon and stars in the night sky. Consider a being so fathomless he created mankind, the human brain, the eye to observe the world, the ear to hear, the hand to touch. Consider a being so artistic he created the butterfly, a sunset, kittens and puppies. Now consider that this being loved mankind so much, he sent his only son to be tortured and killed by them, in order to save them from destruction.

Ayn Rand and God

You say that you're a moral person and do not need God to tell you right from wrong. That isn't really what we need God for. Each of us has a conscience, so in that sense, you are right. Our problem comes in when we do things we know are not right. Like for example, have you ever told a lie? Do you like to be lied to? So then you do know it's not a great thing to do. You keep it hidden in secret because you know it to be wrong.

Is there a God? Does the Bible contain the truth about God?

Don't let pride keep you from considering:

Creation

* Without DNA there is no life in this world.

* DNA is one of the most amazingly complex chemicals around. It contains the information necessary to build and reproduce an organism.

* Consider the probability that even if you have all the components of DNA sitting around together, that they would form themselves into DNA. In our bodies, DNA is put together by a complex system of protein "machines". These "machines" are in turn cranked out by our DNA. You can't have one without the other.

Sin

Sin Immeasurable

by the REV. C. H. Spurgeon

"Who can understand his errors?"—Psalm 19:12.

Intercessory Prayer

Regarding praying or enemies, for me it starts out like, "Ok, I'll hold my nose and do this." But after a while, anger and bitterness dissipate and I come around to wishing the people well. It'd be really hard to pray for someone while simultaneously holding on to hatred for them.
