What I did so my husband would stop drinking

  We received this very interesting narrative from Leila, where she tells us her story: First of all, I would like to thank you for your insatiable dedication to helping families.  Unhappiness in the home is the thing that most derails someone’s life. Secondly, I came to give a testimony of what happened in my [...]

One thing that all winners do

  In the previous post I pointed out the fact that people lose their wars because they’re not trained to fight them, much less win. I also showed you that God Himself, like a father, trained His children to be soldiers. He trains those of His children who are willing to learn. The emphasis here [...]

The only two places where EVERYONE believes in God

  The two places where everyone believes in God are heaven and hell. Only earth has doubters. There is a reason for this. The opposite of hot is cold, of light is darkness, but the opposite of faith is not the absence of faith. It’s doubt. Paul, an avid persecutor of Christians who turned into [...]

   God looked to all religions and said: —  You don’t represent Me. The valley was full of religious leaders from around the world, from all religions.

Why don’t we seek justice?

Justice means giving what’s due to those entitled. Have you received what’s fair? Have you been able to take advantage of all your rights? We already know the answer. Now, let’s understand why. Everyone wants justice, but not everyone seeks it. There are five reasons why: No law attends to your need. Despite all the human [...]

I’m free, I do whatever I want

  It’s impossible to have the two: freewill and a God which protects you from yourself. But the human being insists on such craziness. You want freedom to do whatever you want. But in the moment of truth, when the consequence of freedom gone-wild comes back to you, you want divine intervention. That’s why, in [...]

The conversion of the wallet

  It’s said that, Martin Luther, the man who began the Protestant movement, stressed these three types of conversions: conversion of the head, conversion of the heart, and conversion of the wallet. I agree with him. But I would sum up all of this by saying that only one conversion is real: the wallet’s conversion. [...]

Nobody uses shoes

Perhaps you’ve heard of the story of the shoe vendor who travelled to India on business in order to explore the new market. Arriving there, the vendor contacted his company: “Schedule my trip back. There’s not much to do here. No one uses shoes in India.” The company brought the vendor back and sent another [...]
