Refusing to forgive has a boomerang effect

I recently heard a person say, “I will never forgive him for what he did!“ All too often, people who are hurt or offended do not believe the offending person deserves forgiveness. Many people believe such a declaration to be profound, valiant or courageous. Refusing to forgive another is often used to underscore the disdain …

Does God decide who is going to live and who will die?

Does God decide who lives and who dies from illness, accident, or wartime battle? Five veterans of the Iraq War, profiled in USA Weekend recently, have no doubt.

A “Christian view” of immigration?

By: William Cripe Sr. A “Christian view” of immigration is challenging.  I openly confess, sometimes my “Americanism” clouds my Christianity.
