Preparing for War

A Time for War

War is not something commonly sought out or looked forward to with positive excitement. However, there are times when war is brought upon a people or the call to fight is necessary.

It would be foolish (and devastating) for a nation to enter a conflict unprepared to fight, as would it be for every individual soldier.

Preventative Medicine

A New “Push”

In recent years, there has been a push among medical professionals upon the idea of “preventative medicine.” In some ways, this idea has been around for some time, such as with the old example of: “An apple a day keeps the doctor away.” The current idea focuses upon periodic checkups and good health habits as to avoid greater medical problems in the future.

God and His Nature

While many questions cannot be answered due to the infinite nature of God, He has chosen to reveal different aspects of Himself to man in finite forms that man can comprehend. When dealing with the question of humor and God, some have made assumptions which may be disproven by Biblical account.
