  8. ~9 minute portion of a message from James MacDonald-What’s Down with Hell?  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JOCZ-YzZpS4&feature=share
    Here are some quotes from the message:

    – God’s statement about the severity of sin is in the action He took to protect you from it.
    – On Christ, almighty judgment fell that would’ve sunk the world to hell.
    – If you were accused of being a Christian, would there be enough evidence to convict you? You say, “James, I’m not sure…”. Well the way is narrow, but it’s not complicated. You have to really repent – you have recognize with your whole heart, “I deserve hell – I could not complain, I could not raise a question, I know the righteous law of God, yet I have continually chosen my own way…”

  14. The logic of evolution:
  15. This Jesus of Nazareth, without money and arms, conquered more millions than Alexander, Caesar, Mohammed, and Napoleon; without science and learning, he shed more light on the things human and divine than all philosophers and scholars combined; without the eloquence of schools, He spoke such words of life as were never spoken before or since, and produced effects which lie beyond the reach of orator or poet; without writing a single line, He set more pens in motion, and furnished themes for more sermons, oration, discussions, learned volumnes, works of art, and songs of praise than the whole army of great men of ancient and modern times. – Philip Schaff – The Person of Christ


Have a great week, and see you Sunday!
