  1. 07th January 2005
  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,...

Prophecy vs. the Gospel?

  1. 07th January 2005
  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! Bible prophecy may be an interesting topic, they say, but prophecy is not significant to our salvation. Is that true? Many professing Christians believe that the gospel is only about the person of Christ, and they...

  2. John H. Ogwyn (1949–2005)

Did you know that there are those in the Canadian government that are seeking to label the Bible as "hate literature"?

  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...

  2. John H. Ogwyn (1949–2005)

Many people want to change their lives, but they simply don't know how to do it. Change is frightening, and there is a fear of the unknown that often makes people cling to old behaviors, no matter how bad those behaviors are.

  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?

  2. John H. Ogwyn (1949–2005)

Do you realize that America has an exploding criminal class? The incarceration rate in the United States remained basically the same from about 1925 to 1973. There was an average of a little over 100 people behind bars for every 100,000 residents of this country.

  2. Jeffrey Fall

How difficult would it be, currently, for terrorists to get their hands on enough radioactive material for a dirty bomb?
