Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?

There is nothing on planet earth that can be measured along with my soul and found to be of equal value or more valuable.  No amount of acceptance by people, not a large bank account, not impressive possessions or positions, no immoral dalliance with a pretty or handsome face, nothing on earth is truly worth…

The beauty of a quiet place

I remember before I became a Christian, but was giving it serious thought, people would see some changes in my attitude about certain things and ask me about it, I would say that my lifestyle wasn’t lining up with the will of God, this was before I  ever studied God’s word to fully know His…

God Alone Wise

Someone posted this photo on Facebook and asked readers what would our response be to these statements.

Is it okay for Christians to use bad language?
