  2. John H. Ogwyn (1949–2005)

Whatever happened to shame? There was a time when immoral conduct brought shame. It brought shame on the family and on the individual. People were ashamed for certain things to be reported, or be known, because of the harm that it did to their reputation. There was a time when public officials caught in scandal would resign and just disappear from public life,...

  2. Richard F. Ames

In some religious circles, professing Christians argue that preaching Bible prophecy is irrelevant, or even contrary, to preaching the Gospel message!

Did you know that there are those in the Canadian government that are seeking to label the Bible as "hate literature"? Not only is this up for consideration in the Canadian Parliament; there are those in the United States and in many other countries that are not far behind.

  2. John H. Ogwyn (1949–2005)

As our society has moved to become more secular, Bible-based values have been put aside. So where are the ethics coming from for students—young people—growing up? Where are their moral values? If you live in a society that is based on situation ethics—if you just do what feels good—who defines morality? Who defines right and wrong? Who determines what a person...

Many people want to change their lives, but they simply don't know how to do it.

  2. John H. Ogwyn (1949–2005)

Did you know that the fall of Constantinople in 1453 played a major part in exposing one of history's greatest hoaxes?
