The Greek language had several words for love, but this one was hardly ever employed in their literature. For example, Homer did not use it in the Iliad.

It has been said that there are close to 8,000 promises in the Bible, and not a one of them has ever failed to come true. It has also been said that those promises do not break by leaning on them. In other words, you can take God at His Word. You can trust Him that He will be faithful. With that in mind, Paul says in Romans 4:3: "Abraham believed God and it was credited t...

An atheist was being chased by a bear one day when he prayed: "Lord, please save me!" "But you don't believe in me", the Lord said. "Then please save the bear", the Atheist replied. "Make him a Christian." So the Lord did that, and the next thing the Atheist heard is the bear saying: "Oh Lord, I thank Thee for this food which I am about to receive." The point is that a...
