I admit that dragons would be cool but it just seems too good to be true. One thing that I've always wondered: Jehovah's Witnesses believe that there will be a new Heavens and a new earth. (Isaiah 65:17; 2 Peter 3:13) We believe that this is the "re-creation" that Jesus referred to. (Matthew 19:28 ...

The first time I repented was the first time that I knew Jesus Christ was real, and that He is the Savior. I felt a strong, peaceful feeling that I've never felt before. I cannot generate that feeling in myself-- I've tried. I know it came from the Spirit, just as one knows that the sun makes you wa...

Economy cashing in.

Ahhh, yes. Isn't living in a recession great? I've been gone a while since I was busy buying a house. (I still will probably be gone a lot, since I have a life now.) I probably would have just moved into an apartment and saved up my money for a bigger down payment, but with all the incentives right ...

Yes, I based it off the 10/binary one. You see, that one the joke says "ten" when really it is two. Similar to that, this joke you say "a billion" instead of "five hundred and twelve." Yes, perhaps strange I am only using a 2-byte storage space, but "billion" has a nice ring to it, don't you think?

I came up with this joke a while back, and then I realized how few people would understand it... I've only not had to explain the joke once.

The way I see it, there are only a billion types of people in the world...

So, if we assume God exists, and the Bible was inspired by him, but we want to know if what he is saying is right? In the Scriptures, there are several times that He tells us how.

This will vary on the person. In my own opinion, I think it is God that leads to Truth. If we want Truth, it is only through God that we can receive truths that are beyond our own experience.

I find it interesting that sometimes when Jesus heals someone, he says "Go and sin no more." Does that mean the affliction they had came as a result of sin?
