“When a man (or woman) professes atheism, he immediately disqualifies himself to speak as a representative of science because his premise is a violation of the fundamental rule of science–“nothing created everything.””

I hope you, dear reader, are able to have an enjoyable time with your family during this Christmas season… and that through this time of rest and relaxation your affections for Jesus Christ will be kindled afresh.
This is pretty hot… from rapper shai linne.
If you have yet to get into the Christmas season, this should help.
Today is the last day of my last semester of junior college. I just finished up my last final (it was in science)!
Woo hoo, free at last… well, at least until January, then it is back to the old grind stone – except instead of being at a junior college, I’ll be at an un-junior college… a senior college? :)
By pursuing worthless things one becomes worthless (Jeremiah 2:5). By pursuing false things one becomes false (2 Kings 17:15).
What one pursues defines what one will become.
“There are no detailed Darwinian accounts for the evolution of any fundamental biochemical or cellular system, only a variety of wishful speculations. It is remarkable that Darwinism is accepted as a satisfactory explanation for such a vast subject—evolution—with so little rigorous examination of how well its basic theses work in illuminating specific instances of biological adaptation or diversity.”

“I do not believe one can settle how much we ought to give. I am afraid the only safe rule is to give more than we can spare. In other words, if our expenditure on comforts, luxuries, amusement, etc., is up to the standard common among those with the same income as our own, we are probably giving away too little. If our giving does not at all pinch or hamper us, I should say it is too small. There ought to be things we should like to do and cannot because our commitment to giving excludes them.”
– C.S. Lewis
“You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore” (Psalm 16:11).
Acts 7:55 tells us that Jesus is the unending pleasure at God’s right hand. The greatest source of joy in heaven is Jesus.
