My Latest article on Bible Basics
How often I have been momentarily stumped by some random sound bite tossed to me in conversation. “The Bible is full of errors.” “All religions are basically the same.” “A good God would never send people to Hell.” I know that the foundations of my Christian faith are rock solid. But sometimes I can’t immediately connect the morsel of truth I need with the objection being voiced. Holman Bible Publishers has developed a fantastic resource for us enthusiastic but inexperienced apologists.
From my heart to yours
I’m quite amazed that it’s September 24 and we’ve not had a freeze in our garden yet. The aphids are loving it, though, so today I covered the tomatoes with netting, and let the chickens in the garden to clean up the bugs.
Serving our sweet Savior,

Read my new blog, Katalambano!. (Katalambano is a Greek word meaning “to lay hold of so as to make one’s own, to take into one’s self, to lay hold of with the mind, to understand, perceive, learn, comprehend.”) Not too much on there yet, but I’m working on it.
