Death and Destiny

Death entered the world when Adam and Eve committed the first act of disobedience toward God’s commands. As a result, death is an inevitable ending to life that we all face. By taking the penalty for our sinful disobedience, the Lord Jesus Christ defeated death and offers us the hope of eternal life.   Ecclesiastes 7:1-14 ESV…

The philosophy that dominates the lives of many people today, is the attempt to find one’s happiness in the things of this life.

This actually tears at the fabric of what it means to be…

God created

In a day of secular beliefs, I want us to see that we are not random accidents or events, but we are in fact specific creations of God. Throughout history, God in Trinity has cared for His Creation and because it has been damaged He has taken responsibility to restore. Ecclesiastes 12:1 English Standard Version…
