    Thoughts, Prayers, and...?
    We’ve all seen the comments on social media. People are going through a rough time. Someone they loved passed away, they lost their job, a fire destroyed their home, or any number of terrible things. Then we get the comments, “My thoughts and prayers are with you.” Next come the inevitable comments from atheists about how useless thoughts and prayers are and that people should be helping in more tangible ways. Well, they’re half right. I have nothing against prayer. I think it’s a powerful

    We've all seen the posts on Facebook or other social media. A picture of some guy we've never met or seen before, looking as though he wants to jump out of the photo and beat everyone to a bloody pulp. Next to him is another photo of a battered child or animal. The caption on these photos informs us that the guy in the first photo beat the child or animal in the second and that we should all share the post to let everyone know what a terrible human being he is.

    What About Forgiveness?

    Christians and Refugees
    I posted a mini-rant on my Facebook page a little while ago and, since then, I've been meaning to post a more in-depth post about it but then I thought the issue had died out since no one seemed to be talking about it anymore. Then came the onslaught of Facebook posts once again and I realized this is still a current issue and people are still arguing over whether we should allow Syrian refugees in the country. When I say "country," I'm referring to any country, since these principles should
