I can pretty much flat-out guarantee that if the treasures you store in heaven are based on good deeds done here on earth - you'll be happy with what you see at your world's end.

As I believed I mentioned earlier, faith is a powerful force.

I wish you a Merry Christmas.
Matthew 18:3 "And he said: "Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven."

I think its ok to be a little anxious over looking for signs of the end of the age.

Seems to me that folks tend to find what they're looking for.

Even if they need to resort to rubbing their eyes, squinting, wearing rose-tinted shades - or all of the above.

Do you think this is a sign from God of the things to come mentioned in the bible?

Narwhal?





Though marine biologists do call it a tusk.

As I said, there are no horned creatures in the sea. Gnarwhals have tusks, which is in no way associated with a horn.

The "horns" were not horns, but part of the structure that holds the shark's front flippers in place. They only looked like horns because of decomposition. It is 100% certain it was a shark carcass. There was nothing at all supernatural going on...

Some times its good not to quickly believe every conclusion out there. It is not 100% certain its a shark carcass just because a couple people who didn't even see the body in person said it is.

I have a hunch you might be surprised to see who turns out to be the bad guy.
No I won't be surprised, the bible has already told me who the bad guy is. The bad guy WON'T be God, and that's all that matters to me since HE is the one I serve, worship, obey, and plan to spend eternity with.
