Good morning friends,

Here is a random quote (of over 900) from Nuggets:

The most important question we must ask when considering a religion is not What can it do for me? or Do I like it? but Is it true? The one thing we need to know above all else is whether or not this religion accurately describes the nature of our existence. If it does not, it is ridiculous to join it, no matter what aspects of it we may find appealing. And if it does, it is ridiculous not to join it, no matter how many aspects of it we may find unappealing or how much it might help in providing a basis for morality. – Donald J. Johnson

Once when Jesus was praying in private and his disciples were with him, he asked them, “Who do the crowds say I am?” They replied, “Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others, that one of the prophets of long ago has come back to life.” “But what about you?” he asked. “Who do you say I am?” Peter answered, “The Christ of God.” Jesus strictly warned them not to tell this to anyone. And he said, “The Son of Man must suffer many things and be rejected by the elders, chief priests and teachers of the law, and he must be killed and on the third day be raised to life.” Luke 9:18-22

Blessings to you all

Good morning friends,

Here is a random quote (of over 900) from Nuggets:

What is the most heinous thing a person can do in this life? JP Moreland responds: the worst thing a person can do is to mock and dishonor and refuse to love the person that we owe absolutely everything to, which is our Creator, God himself. You have to understand that God is infinitely greater in his goodness, holiness, kindness and justice than anyone else. To think that a person could go through their whole life constantly ignoring him, constantly mocking him by the way they choose to live without him, saying, I couldn’t care less about what you put me here to do. I couldn’t care less about your values or your son’s death for me. I’m going to ignore all of that -that’s the ultimate sin. And only the punishment worthy of that is the ultimate punishment, which is everlasting separation from God. – Lee Strobel

The LORD said to Moses, “Speak to the Israelites and get twelve staffs from them, one from the leader of each of their ancestral tribes. Write the name of each man on his staff. On the staff of Levi write Aaron’s name, for there must be one staff for the head of each ancestral tribe. Place them in the Tent of Meeting in front of the Testimony, where I meet with you. The staff belonging to the man I choose will sprout, and I will rid myself of this constant grumbling against you by the Israelites.” So Moses spoke to the Israelites, and their leaders gave him twelve staffs, one for the leader of each of their ancestral tribes, and Aaron’s staff was among them. Moses placed the staffs before the LORD in the Tent of the Testimony. The next day Moses entered the Tent of the Testimony and saw that Aaron’s staff, which represented the house of Levi, had not only sprouted but had budded, blossomed and produced almonds. Numbers 17:1-8
