Asking questions is a wonderful way to open the doors to learning. Questions are a teaching tool long used by educators to simultaneously teach and draw out insights from pupils—prompting them to think! Jesus Christ used this teaching method about very important topics.


A Different Gospel?

In the pages of the Holy Bible we find an astounding fact about the world in which we live! Revelation 12:9 states, “So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.” Do you believe that there is a very real Satan the Devil who has...

Many people have a “red letter” edition of the Bible, which prints in red ink the words spoken by Jesus. But even with Jesus’ words printed in red to draw attention to them, some seem to misunderstand the things Christ actually said and taught. A “red letter” edition of the New Testament of the Bible was first printed in 1899, the idea of Louis Klopsch, editor...

Suppose the United States’ government decided to ignore July 4 as Independence Day, the anniversary of its birth as a nation. How would Americans feel about that?

And yet, in the interests of more than 700 billion dollars worth of annual purchases, many industries are doing just that: loading the barrels of their marketing campaigns with whatever ammunition they can. Their targets: the minds and impulses of children—and if you think it’s just about...

Today is Reformation Day, and a special one at that. 500 years ago, Martin Luther mailed a collection of 95 statements to Archbishop Albert of Mainz and, it is believed, nailed them to the door of All Saints’ Church in Wittenberg, Germany. Known as the famous Ninety-five Theses, they represented his disagreement with some of the practices and positions of the...


Christians and Halloween

Is it “fun” to play at evil? Should we follow our neighbors, like proverbial lemmings, off the dangerous cliff of pagan practices? Most of society has accepted the lie that Halloween is “innocent fun” and eagerly train their children to take pleasure in symbols of pagan, and even Satanic, evil.

Looking down the road is a good idea. Taken literally, it makes you a safer driver. Using the phrase "looking down the road" as a metaphor for having vision and foresight can help you anticipate dangers and avoid other kinds of accidents and problems. It can also make you a better employee, a better parent, a better student, a better Christian.
