  • We talk and search for true freedom, and Galatians comes through with the answer as to what freedom is all about.
  • "If the Son shall make you free, you shall be free, indeed."  Or, putting it in the words of Jesus Christ, "You shall know the truth, and," what?  "the truth shall make you free."

  • There are those who support gay marriage as a civil matter while believing the act itself immoral.
  • Obviously, not all immoral acts should be criminalized by the state. Although the state is constantly scalp-deep in moral issues, it lacks the competency to deal with large swaths of the moral order, such as internal acts of the heart or mind. Not even all external acts, capable of being publicly established, are criminalized
  • Should the state fill its treasury and prisons by prosecuting the merely rude, immodest, or gluttonous?

  • What if most modern arguments against religious belief have been attacking the wrong God all along?
  • One reason that modern-day debates between atheists and religious believers are so bad-tempered, tedious and infuriating is that neither side invests much effort in figuring out what the other actually means when they use the word 'God'.
  • Richard Dawkins expertly demolishes what he calls 'the God hypothesis', but devotes only a few sketchy anecdotes to establishing that this God hypothesis is the one that has defined religious belief through history, or defines it around the world today

  • “I think parents are assuming they’re helping their children,” says Rachel Cruze, 25, a speaker, author of “Smart Money Smart Kids” and the daughter of financial expert Dave Ramsey. “What parents are doing is they’re unintentionally harming their children.”
  • Moving back home can be a suitable, yet temporary, solution for young people who have recently finished college or suffered a financial setback. But experts advise parents and children to have a frank talk before the kids arrive with suitcases
  • Some experts, including Tessina and Cruze, advise creating a written contract that spells all these things out. “When it’s in writing, you’re more likely to stick to it,” Cruze says.

  • After I blew the whistle on the CIA’s torture program in 2007, the fallout for me was brutal. To make a long story short, I served nearly two years in federal prison and then endured a few more months of house arrest.

    What happened to the torture program? Nothing.

  • I thought they’d work together to ensure that our collective name would never again be sullied by torture — that we’d respect our own laws and the international laws and treaties to which we’re signatories.
  • n retrospect, I was naïve, even after having served in the CIA for nearly 15 years and as a Senate committee staffer for several more.

  • Sadly, while we celebrate advances in technology that prove life has value and worth before leaving the hospital, we also continue to be one of only seven nations that allow elective, late-term abortions — putting the United States in the same category as countries like Vietnam and North Korea.
  • It is difficult to imagine a more important measure of a society than how it treats its most innocent and defenseless population.

  • When sickness strikes, people around the world pray for healing. Many of the faithful claim that prayer has cured them of blindness, deafness and metastasized cancers, and some believe they have been resurrected from the dead.
  • Can, and should, science test such claims?
  • Scientific research has returned mixed results. Some studies conclude that prayer improves health, while others show no effect -- or suggest that prayer may lead to worsening health.

    Part of the confusion stems from how prayer is studied.

  • The Lord Jesus in Scripture at least twelve times is recorded to have said, "Don't worry...Don't be anxious," and He explained why on the occasions in which He said that. A number of times He said, "Don't be afraid," and explained why. Anxiety-Free living is part of what the Lord offers. It's part of the gospel message. It is what we have who are in the Kingdom if we want to take it.
  • Now you have to understand the promises of God and you have to understand the purposes of God to come to this worry-free, anxiety-free living.
  • "My God shall supply all your...what?...needs." Do you trust God to that point?

  • One of the keys to giving yourself the best chance to find records the VA says is missing is to be as specific as possible  about the records you are looking for. Dates, locations, names of people you served with, the unit you served in, your commanding  officer, name and address of a hospital and any other details may make the difference in whether the missing information is  found or not. The VA has a "duty to assist" to help you find all of your records, but take it upon yourself to provide as much information as you can that  will help in locating the evidence you are seeking. A lawyer or representative can sometimes be very helpful in locating lost  records. Your congressmen can also be a good source to help you find missing evidence from your military file
