What Happens When You Die?

What Happens When You Die?   We don’t like to think about death. It’s not a pleasant subject, and we avoid even discussing it seriously or giving it any diligent study. If our career plans involved a foreign assignment, our desk would be littered with brochures and travel folders as we would try learn all we could about our forthcoming destination. If we were scheduled for an exam that our lives depended upon, we would be studying in Continue Reading

One antidote for many ills

“Turn us again, O Lord God of hosts, cause thy face to shine; and we shall be saved.” Psalm 80:19 Suggested Further Reading: Revelation 3:1-6 We want a revival, if we would promote the glory of God.

If a man walks in Christ, then he so acts as Christ would act; for Christ being in him, his hope, his Continue Reading
