Romans 5:19 (NIV) - For just as through the disobedience of the one man the many were made sinners, so also through the obedience of the one man the many will be made righteous. - Some people might work for years to find out who their ancestors are. The computers of today can make this easy and just plain fun. In Biblical times the Jewish people thought it very important to be able to trace their lineage back to Abraham of the old testament, the man God chose to be the father of the Israelites,...

Acts 5:17-21 - Then the high priest and all his associates, who were members of the party of the Sadducees were filled with jealousy. They arrested the apostles and put them in the public jail. But during the night an angel of the Lord opened the doors of the jail and brought them out. “Go, stand in the temple courts,” he said, “and tell the people all about this new life.

Then & Now

Isaiah 53:10 (NIV) - Yet it was the Lord’s will to crush him and cause him to suffer, and though the Lord makes his life an offering for sin, he will see his offspring and prolong his days, and the will of the Lord will prosper in his hand. - The old testament prophet Isaiah wrote this about 700 B.C.

Thanksgiving (reposted from 2012)

Posted 10-26-2015 at 07:59 AM by snowduck

When the Plymouth (in present-day Massachusetts) colonists celebrated the first Thanksgiving in 1621 with the Wampanoag Indians, it was a celebration to give thanks to God after having some rough times, and they probably had no idea that it would become a national holiday.

1 Timothy 6:17 (NIV)- Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment. - It seems very fashionable and politically correct to dislike rich people today simply because they have a lot of money. But if we had the choice we'd have no problem being rich like them. Except for being rich the wealthy are just like everyone else, and they need...
