Everyone knows that evil is bad, but what exactly is evil? I’ve been reading the Bible for many years and the answer to the question what is evil has, until just the other day, eluded me. It is important in my mind to understand things. I live to understand. 1 Corinthians 12:12–13 The body is […]

Whenever I read the account of the fall of man in the Garden of Eden (Genesis chapter three) I always wondered at the wording concerning Adam and Eve’s nakedness; before and after they sinned. It always seemed to me that I was missing something. With that in mind I have tried to keep an eye […]

God is represented in the Sun and his light shines and illuminates future events in such a way that the events, sort of, cast a visible shadow that arrives before the real […]
