  And the Lord spoke to you out of the midst of the fire. You heard the sound of the words, but saw no form; you only heard a voice. Deuteronomy 4:12 God never worried about leaving any kind of image of Himself to mankind. Think with me: Wouldn’t it be more logical, easier and [...]


Why does your prejudice yell: “I’m dumb!”

  No matter how absurd the scene in the video above may seem, it’s more common than it seems. And not only with regards to race. Prejudice is all around, whether due to religion, social status, culture, or finances. It’s like Robert Anthony says: “Most people don’t think. They just rearrange their prejudices.” Once I [...]

For scorners delight in their [...]


Trolls and seeing what you want to see
