The “settled science” of the origin of the universe is far from settled: Einstein’s Lost Theory Uncovered

“Pastors must be students of God’s Word, continually reviewing and digging deeper into the Scriptures in order to discern what is right and true and essential for the equipping of the saints. The pastor’s study of the Word must be, first, for his own edification and enrichment. From there, he must consider the application of Scripture to the needs of his congregation and the temper of the times. The more we are furnished with the sure Word of God, the more we will grow to be like Jesus, and be equipped to help others in this same calling.” —T.M. Moore

“Jesus observed the law and fulfilled the law. He did not throw the law away, for the sake of love. For the sake of love, He threw Himself away. That’s another counterintuitive lesson He gave to us, as we all proceed together, slouching toward ‘tolerance’ and carrying our consciences along the way ” —Elizabeth Scalia.

Finding God In Hidden Places (book review)

Finding GodThe life of Joni Eareckson Tada is a marvel! The way she has transparently lived out her disability, with all its challenges and opportunities, has been encouraging to many, including myself. In her book Finding God In Hidden Places I got even more insight into this godly woman’s unique paradigm.

This book is really a collection of short stories in which Joni shares how God has revealed Himself to her through the people she’s met and the experiences she’s had. The title of the book sounds like God is hidden, but as Joni shares, God is actually revealing Himself all the time, if we will only have open eyes and hearts to see Him.

In fact, near the end of the book Joni shared how she has grown through all of her experiences—“God is always revealing Himself to us through His Word and through the works of His hands. He’s an intentional God, brimming over with purpose, infusing meaning into everything around us. But we need to open ‘the eyes of our heart’ before we can see; and that, my friend, begins with a prayer from Ephesians 1:17-18.”

Not too long I ago I realized that most of the books I was reading were authored by men and I determined that I needed to be intentional in getting a feminine perspective in my reading material. Find God is the first book I selected after making this decision, and I don’t think I could have picked anything more eye-opening than these sensitive, thought-provoking insights from Joni.
