Started this discussion. Last reply by Ron Bell 5th month 13, 2010. 2 Replies

"We're discussing the worst child abusers here.  A dumb kid who goes much too far on a date is also a sexual abuser, but the dumb kid might eventually get a clue and become a normal member of society. I've read a theory that sexual…"

Today's Untouchables: Sex Offenders

Sex offenders are the foremost pariahs of our current day. In opinion polls, even intravenous drug users place higher. A recent series of high profile cases involving child sexual abuse have revealed the maddening frequency of the problem. My hometown newspaper now exists in electronic format, and as I read the local news, it seems that every other week brings a report of a new crime…See More

"As we approach Easter it is comforting to know that Jesus still lives, not just as a memory but as someone only a prayer away- Help me Jesus was probably the original text message.:)"

The Story of Jesus Matters More

Over the weekend, I watched a well-made documentary. It discussed how the language and content of the New Testament changed considerably from the time of Jesus to hundreds of years later. During the program, multiple biblical scholars were interviewed, and many of them disputed the authorship of particular books.The…See More
