God never meant that people were to wear clothes. He meant we were to be nude. But we were in a state of innocence. Then sin came into the human race and became a blood poisoning.
Heaven is a wonderful place and the benefits for the believer are out of this world!
I am not going to Heaven because I have preached to great crowds or read the Bible many times. I'm going to Heaven just like the thief on the cross who said in that last moment: 'Lord, remember me.'
I don't think that there's any conflict at all between science today and the Scriptures. I think that we have misinterpreted the Scriptures many times and we've tried to make the Scriptures say things they weren't meant to say, I think that we have made a mistake by thinking the Bible is a scientific book. The Bible is not a book of science. The Bible is a book of Redemption, and of course I accept the Creation story. I believe that God did create the universe. I believe that God created man, and whether it came by an evolutionary process and at a certain point He took this person or being and made him a living soul or not, does not change the fact that God did create man... whichever way God did it makes no difference as to what man is and man's relationship to God.
I have the problems of, I must confess, old age.
I think television has had a vast, unbelievable impact on us.
If God doesn't punish America, He'll have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah.
In an age that is given over to cynicism, coldness, and doubt and in which the fire and warmth of God is conspicuous for its absence in the world, my heart cry is, Let the fire fall?..O, God, let the fire of your love fall on us.
It's sometimes comical to hear the younger generation ask their peers to repeat themselves.
Many churches today have special programs for people who are grieving, and these can be very helpful.
My prayer today is that we will feel the loving arms of God wrapped around us, and will know in our hearts that He will never forsake us as we trust in Him.
Old age should make us look forward with joyous anticipation to eternity. The Apostle Paul put it this way: ?For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal?
Our job is to faithfully proclaim, to pray, to sow the seed, and that seed may germinate in many ways.
Courage is contagious. When a brave man takes a stand, the spines of others are stiffened.
