The Ruins Are Repaired

March 12, 2018

The Ruins Are Repaired Cognitive neuroscientists have discovered that we have a “good-news” bias. We remember good news more clearly and believe it more confidently than bad news.

The Necessity of Christ’s Sacrifice

October 19, 2018

The Necessity of Christ’s Sacrifice In the Greek language, the word diathēkē can be translated as both “covenant” and “will” (as in a last will and testament). Understanding that double meaning helps us see the logic of the argument in today’s reading. Because the “new covenant (diathēkē)” established by Christ is also, in a sense, a last...

Loren Krytzer was watching Antiques Roadshow when he saw a Navajo blanket from the 1800s similar to one he owned. He had his blanket appraised, and it sold for $1.5 million!

We Are Holy to the Lord

July 31, 2019

We Are Holy to the Lord The nature versus nurture debate in psychology questions whether our behavior is inherited or learned. Do we behave the way we do because we have been wired to think and act a certain way from birth? Or is our behavior a result of a combination of learning and environment. Many feel both play a role.
