mid-week apologetics booster (2-7-2019)

Good morning friends,

For anyone that, like me, keeps 1 or more Todo lists and is challenged in keeping track of the various things you need to get done in your lives, I just finished developing a web-based tool for myself that you all can take advantage of too (for free, of course).  It is a web-based Todo list.  Here is the link:


You can enter a user id and password (and click “Remember me”) to create your own Todo list.  Each Todo item has a category (whatever categories you want), a title and a description.  You can search Todos or filter them by category and delete them when they are completed.  You can also view/search previously deleted Todo’s.  The reason I created this is so that I can have secured access to my Todo list whether I’m at home, at work or just on my smart phone.  So far, I think it has had a noticeable impact on my productivity.  I hope you all will take advantage of this tool as well.  Please feel free to send me feedback or ideas you have as you use it.

Here is a random quote (of over 750) from Nuggets:

Training is essential in law enforcement because officers deploy on a regular basis. If we could handle every call over the phone without leaving the station, none of us would need to exercise or train tactically. You don’t have to train if you have no intention of deploying. The same is true for us as Christians. Think about that for a minute. Most of us see our church buildings as places to gather on Sunday; seldom do we think of them as places to train in preparation for deployment. – J. Warner Wallace

Do you think we all are just going to start raping and pillaging just because we don’t have a book telling us what to do? Are you afraid of that? I’m not because that’s not what we are going to do. Yes, Nazis were bad but there were Christian Nazis and atheist Nazis. So I don’t see… What are you so afraid of? To this Ravi quickly replied, “Do you lock your doors at night?” Watch his full response in the video – YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0218GkAGbnU&feature=youtu.be
