A friend says the U.S.A. is mentioned in the Bible. He says someone wrote a book on the topic. My friend is pretty smart. Question and Answer I saw a book that said the Rapture would take place in 1988. It didn’t, of course. I refer to that embarrassing book only to make the point that virtually any nutty idea can find a sponsor in the publishing...

I am having trouble with Paul’s words, “forgetting what is behind” (Phil. 3:13). How can we just simply forget the past? Question and Answer I agree with you—we are not computers!
