12/09/2017 19:26
Consider the turmoil of the people where the Ten Commandments, prayer, manger scenes, and other such symbols has been removed from schools and public property. Then consider what such cities as Jerusalem and Bethlehem must be suffering as the source of such symbols. The landscape of those...

Borrower Nor Lender Be

11/18/2017 19:12
This quote, "Neither a borrower nor a lender be...," is not Biblical, but is from Shakespeare's play, Hamlet. In comparison to Biblical quotes, there is Proverbs 22:7 which says, "The rich rule over the poor, and the borrower is slave to the lender." Which in itself is a good reason not to be a...
