Natural Disasters - Why?

The recent tornadoes in Oklahoma and Kansas caused death and terrible damage and disrupted thousands of lives. Our hearts go out to the victims of the great devastation. Already we know of 500 million dollars in property damage around Oklahoma City according to the Southwest Insurance Information Institute. And the damage is far more widespread than that coving parts of Oklahoma, Kansas, Texas and Tennessee. More than 12,000 cars have become twisted wrecks and several thousand homes have been damaged or destroyed. Some suggest that there will be more than one billion dollars in damages when the effects of these tornadoes—some in excess of 300 miles per hour—is fully known. But, do we understand WHY such tragedies happen? Can we learn something from the suffering and the pain they cause? Should we blame God or Satan or random chance?

Christians and Civil Leaders

Around the world, nations are losing their leaders of many years. Old statesmen are fading from the scene, and younger rulers are being replaced with STARTLING frequency. What does this mean for our world, and for our future? How should we react, as citizens and as Christians? What does the BIBLE say?

Britain and the Euro

The new European currency, the Euro, has now arrived! In years to come, it may well challenge the dollar as the world reserve currency. It is certainly going to speed up the process toward a United States of Europe! But what is the real PURPOSE of the Euro?

True Christians Need COURAGE

The enormous upheavals described in this month's lead article will test the mettle of every person on this planet. Many of those who are willing to seek the praise of God rather than the praise of men may go through unimaginable trials and persecutions. They will certainly need a high degree of courage and fortitude.
