I believe our world is the product of a Person. This is clearly taught in the scripture. It would make the discipline of prayer a little foolish if I were not praying to someone specific.

You have shared a great insight. As a praying person myself I agree. I remember a time in my life when I asked "Is there anyone there?" I am happy to say that there is an answer to that question. Thanks for your comment. It is the first for my blog!
I have been to your blog. Thank you for sharing it with me. You are doing a good work. I agree with you that many critics of the bible have never actually read it.
Keep up the good work.
Sorry about that. They want to either say it doesn't apply to today or make up some other excuse to not obey it. The principles in Scripture never change. God tells us what He thinks about abortion, homosexuality, divorce, and other issues of our day. Jesus said if we love Him we will obey Him. I have never seen laws being passed today that are so contrary to His Word. Let me recommend a great book to read: "A Christian Manifesto" by Francis Schafer. This is such a pertinent book especially for today.
Thanks for the response to the blog, Fulton. I added a post today. Not many people think about something that existed before the creation of the world. I think that we Christians may be unique in that sense. We do believe in God and are taught in His best revelation, the Bible, to think about Him and glorify Him.
Thanks Jim. What you wrote is thought provoking. It makes us think which is the purpose of teachings arc to tomorrow. . Of course there was something that existed before the creation of the world. There was God from eternity past who had no beginning. God was the author of Genesis.
I will look forward to following your blog. I forwarded it to Lisa and she is looking forward to it as well. I think you are going along at the Jim Allman pace! You have 4 posts and you are still on the first verse! J
