Re: "Prayer, Hell, Fate" ~ The Narrow Path Call of the Week

In regards to the Harvard study cited in the video about the effectiveness of praying vs not praying: I recently read/listened** to Lee Strobel’s book “The Case for Miracles” and this study is directly addressed and called into question. I enjoyed the entire book as a whole but to see this study dir...

Re: THE 16 COMMANDMENTS

How do you think that principle would be applied if someone is about to harm you or your family? In answer to this, I heard someone say hypothetically that if it was your own child assaulting your wife you would obviously do whatever is necessary to protect your wife, but wouldn't want to do anythi...

Re: Should I engage in sex with my cheating wife?

I think you may be mistaken MMathis. He has expressed in the past that English is not his first language. I also recall him years ago mentioning that he met Steve Gregg when Steve was teaching in the Toronto area. Not a likely candidate for a troll. It's possible he's just in a lot of pain and despe...

Re: Best books on Church Hustory

As an excellent overview of Church History I'd recommend The Story of Christianity by Justo L Gonzalez. I've read through both volumes and i'm currently re-reading them. While he obviously tells the story of the Western Church, which we are all familiar with to one degree or another, he also delves ...

Re: Christian Driving

I know one thing-- Those people--- who insist on not getting over into the correct lane when there is a sign that says "left lane closed two miles ahead" and scream on by the line of traffic composed of people who do the right thing by getting over as soon as possible, thereby worsening the traffic...

Re: Christians and lying

I actually just finished reading Eric Metaxas' biography of Dietrich Bonhoeffer. Bonhoeffer not only told a lie, he lived one. He was part of a government agency that was secretly seeking to overthrow Hitler while they were all feigning allegiance to Him. Bonhoeffer even had to appear as a sellout t...

Re: Preferred Bible Translation

Rather than pointing to a particular translation I simply recommend making sure you read more than one. If you find a significant variance in the translation of a particular verse or word, this would be a good indicator it's time do some digging and find out why. In this way, multiple translations c...

Re: Favorite Books

Hello Peter,

I read several of Janet Benge's biographical books with my daughter when she was younger. We liked all of them. Here's a link to her books:

Re: The Reliability of the New Testament

How about this passage that i once heard a pastor point out in a sermon. It contrasts head knowledge vs. a heart after Jesus. 1 Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, wise men from the east came to Jerusalem, 2 saying, "Where is he who has been born kin...
