“I think it’s arrogant of us to think that we are alone in the universe.” So said a network television news reporter in a discussion of some new discovery in the universe.

While man may sin and commit evil acts, God ultimately remains in control. Providence is not a word we use very often in our daily lives.

That was until April 15, 2013! Ever since then what people […] Read More

“…Even though Noah, Daniel, and Job were in [the land], as I live, says the Lord God, they would deliver neither son nor daughter; they would deliver only themselves by their righteousness.” (Ezekiel 14:20) What do Noah, Daniel, and Job have in common?
