How to Identify False Teachers – Denny Burk has a great little article on identifying false teachers.

Without God, Without Hope – I appreciated Charlene’s article in which she remembers her youth and says, “When I hear myself say things like what is wrong with people these days?,’ shake my head in disgust and marvel that human beings could be so rebellious, so foolish, so crass, so arrogant, it is a good sign that I am not remembering where I came from.”

The Greatest Infographic – I enjoy the YouTube channel Numberphile. In this video they discuss what may be one of the greatest infographics ever. “in 1862 Charles Joseph Minard created a much-praised infographic depicting Napoleon’s invasion of Russia in 1812.” It’s pretty amazing.

Is Online Church Really a Church? – No. Ed Stetzer explains.

Teaching Your Children Politeness – Here are some pointers on teaching your children to be polite.

    Why Didn’t You Tell Me?

    If you have spent any time at all on YouTube, you have probably seen videos of people hearing for the first time or people seeing color for the first time—videos of people who, through the miracles of modern science, have senses restored that had either been missing altogether or that had become dull through illness…

    We All Have To Do With God

    Every one of us must deal with God. Every one of us must, at some time, face God. Every one of us must be prepared to give an account to God. For, as Scripture says, “Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto…
