  • It is an obvious fact that God created everything in our world and was pleased with his work. One of the well known arguments to that is the theory of evolution. But a less well known argument is that God is not actively involved with his creation. This theory is just as false as the theory of evolution.

  • Have you been to a family gathering lately and looked around to see how many of the people in the room are texting or playing on their cell phone.  I would like to suggest some family activities that do not include technology.
