Most of us know the story of The Passover from the epic film, The Ten Commandments. This Jewish holiday is a remembrance of the Exodus from slavery in Ancient Egypt. Jewish families eat a special meal called a Seder that is full of symbolic foods.
People wear their “religion” in different ways. Some may be deeply devout daily while others only pray in times of great desperation. Some seek to eliminate humanity’s wrongs while others seek to prove humanity itself wrong. Look at these 19 types of Christians and see if you fit or break the mold.
I came across the following image on Facebook. I’m not sure who originally created it but I just love it. The image entitled “Do You Seriously Think God Can’t Use You?” is a simple reminder that God can use anybody… including you and me. Never let the enemy tell you otherwise!
I have one on my Android phone as do many Christians I know. How about you? This infographic provides some amazing statistics on how many people are using the YouVersion mobile Bible.
I wonder if many people have really ever thought about the idea of Karma. The way that I have always understood it, when you did something selfish, insensitive, rude, cruel, mean, or otherwise unkind you will accumulate “bad Karma.” On the other hand, when you do things that are kind, considerate, selfless, caring, loving or otherwise “good” you will earn “good Karma.”

Better than that, hopefully you’ve wrestled with it a bit in order to get an understanding that you feel comfortable with intellectually.

It always is fascinating to me when people will try to refute a theistic claim and then turn around and make a claim based on the very logic they are trying to use to refute the other’s claim.
