This just in...literally!

Just made it through a pretty large hailstorm. Well...let's just put it this way...I've never seen hail this size in my life. I guess I had a pretty cush cush life living in California, where everyday the weather was like Disneyland. Then I moved to Texas and everything changed. Tonight proved that everything is truly bigger in Texas and this storm produced golf ball (or a bit bigger) size hail.
It was a beautiful storm though. I love it when storms come--even if I am enjoying them from the window in my closet. Storms demonstrate the majesty and greatness of God Almighty--the God of the Bible. The God who made the earth and everything in it. The God who is sovereignly in control of all things, the God who is able to able to create the world in only 6 days. The God Who sent His Son to die for sinners so that sinners might be forgiven. The God who is rich in mercy. That's my God. I wish I could describe Him to you.Here's a close up and not as blurry.

"But when Pharaoh saw that the rain and the hail and the thunder had ceased, he sinned again and hardened his heart, he and his servants." Exodus 9:34

To my atheist friends, please don't continue to harden your heart for another minute towards God Almighty. There is still time to repent and turn to the Living God--the one Who is able to give you everlasting life. The one Who is able to forgive your transgressions and make you as white as snow. "But there is forgiveness with You,That You may be feared. Psalm 130:4

Atheists post billboards around DFW

I've been receiving emails about this billboard and I hadn't read the short Associated Press article that was written about the billboard until my friend Jason emailed this morning. Here's a portion of the article. Pay close attention to the Chairman, I'll explain in a minute who he is:

DALLAS — A group of atheists has posted two billboards on busy North Texas highways to reassure those who don’t believe in God...They remain covered until a scheduled unveiling Monday. Metroplex Atheists Chairman Terry McDonald says the group isn’t trying to attract believers in God or convert them to atheism. "It’s to let those people who don’t believe know that they’re not alone and that there are a lot of groups that they can become involved in," he said. — The Associated Press

This is the billboard that will be uncovered:

My friend Jason emailed and asked me this morning, "didn't you witness to this group once? or the group leader?" Then I quickly scanned the article and sure enough it was Terry McDonald! I contacted Terry in 2007 and asked him if he wanted to be on The Way of the Master Radio to talk about atheism and Christianity. He gladly agreed. We met at the Southlake Town Square and He ended up on two segments of the program and heard a clear gospel presentation. In fact, if you go to, Terry is the 3rd picture (from the left) on my header. He's the gentleman with the beard in the green shirt.

I'm just glad that he heard the gospel!

And for all the atheists out there, we don't mind the least bit that you are posting these billboards because they provide a wonderful springboard to talk about spiritual things, Heaven and Hell, death and the afterlife, how one can be saved from God's wrath, etc.

Special thank you to all my atheist friends.

Elevating Christ & the Mercy of God—Emilio Ramos

It brings me great joy to be able to share this short writing from my dear husband, Emilio Ramos (Teaching pastor at Sovereign Joy Community Church, Keller, TX). I hope you are encouraged by this as much as I was. Here's what Emilio writes:

I have been saturated in the virtue list of Galatians 5:22-25, these virtues stem from the fruit of the Spirit. Upon reflection I have noticed how many of these are mere reflections of God’s own character. Researching the kindness of God I came across its close relationship to God’s mercy. As I looked at how the mercy, kindness, and goodness of God were elevated and praised in the OT, I could not help but to make the consummate connection between Christ and all of this. God’s mercy is an inexpressible and unimaginable grace and gift of God.

God’s wrath is the greatest wrath. It is as
Edward’s put it, “the wrath of a Being that is All Mighty”. One moment of reflection upon our own wickedness, one instant of retrospective thought toward our depravity and we should instantaneously see the mercy of God for what it is, exceedingly merciful.

In the word of God, mercy is a powerful thing. It shows us the nature of God. It shows what the world of men ought to be like. Jesus said, “Blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy” (Matthew 5:7). It helps us to see what we deserve in its place. Apart from the force field of God’s mercy we would be crushed into oblivion. Without God’s sustaining mercy toward us we would be ground to powder by the strength of His Justice and Wrath. God’s wrath is the greatest wrath. It is as Edward’s put it, “the wrath of a Being that is All Mighty”. Simply put, the mercy of God keeps us from utter destruction and eternal devastation. For this reason God’s mercy is exalted in the Word of God. It is spoken about from generation to generation. God’s mercy is acclaimed with praise because it is the cause of such great and everlasting joy. The Hebrew word for mercy is /hesed/, the NASB tends to translate this as “lovingkindness”.

One Psalm is sufficient to see just how precious this attribute of God has been to His people,

Psalm 136:
“Give thanks to the LORD, for He is good, For His lovingkindness is everlasting.

Give thanks to the God of gods, For His lovingkindness is everlasting.

Give thanks to the Lord of lords, For His lovingkindness is everlasting.

To Him who alone does great wonders, For His lovingkindness is everlasting;

To Him who made the heavens with skill, For His lovingkindness is everlasting;

To Him who spread out the earth above the waters, For His lovingkindness is everlasting;

To Him who made the great lights, For His lovingkindness is everlasting:

The sun to rule by day, For His lovingkindness is everlasting,

The moon and stars to rule by night, For His lovingkindness is everlasting.

To Him who smote the Egyptians in their firstborn, For His lovingkindness is everlasting,

And brought Israel out from their midst, For His lovingkindness is everlasting,

With a strong hand and an outstretched arm, For His lovingkindness is everlasting.

To Him who divided the Red Sea asunder, For His lovingkindness is everlasting,

And made Israel pass through the midst of it, For His lovingkindness is everlasting;

But He overthrew Pharaoh and his army in the Red Sea, For His lovingkindness is everlasting.

To Him who led His people through the wilderness, For His lovingkindness is everlasting;

To Him who smote great kings, For His lovingkindness is everlasting,
And slew mighty kings, For His lovingkindness is everlasting:

Sihon, king of the Amorites, For His lovingkindness is everlasting,

And Og, king of Bashan, For His lovingkindness is everlasting,

And gave their land as a heritage, For His lovingkindness is everlasting,

Even a heritage to Israel His servant, For His lovingkindness is everlasting.

Who remembered us in our low estate, For His lovingkindness is everlasting,

And has rescued us from our adversaries, For His lovingkindness is everlasting;

Who gives food to all flesh, For His lovingkindness is everlasting.

Give thanks to the God of heaven, For His lovingkindness is everlasting.”

Yet if we have not elevated Christ and the mercy of God, we have not elevated mercy because Christ is our only access to the everlasting mercy of God. Indeed all of God’s spiritual graces are poured out upon us “IN CHRIST”. He is central. His is essential. He is preeminent in all things least of which is not the way in which we receive the mercy of God.

“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ” - Ephesians 1:3

From this great all inclusive phrase i.e. “in Christ”, Paul now begins to tell us what we have as a result of being in Christ. Election, Sanctification, Predestination, Adoption, Redemption, Forgiveness, Knowledge, Inheritance, and Preservation. God no longer relates with us on the basis of our own merits, deeds, or lack there off. God now sees us through the lens of being in His Son, in Christ. God is kind to us by virtue of the fact that we no longer are seeking to have a righteousness of our own but we now have God’s own righteousness because we have been found in Christ and that by faith.

“so that in the ages to come He might show the surpassing riches of His grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.” - Ephesians 2:7

“and may be found in Him, not having a righteousness of my own derived from the Law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which comes from God on the basis of faith,” - Philippians 3:9

For this reason it is all in Christ. This is why Christ is right at the heart of it all. Based upon Christ’s merits, Christ’s righteousness, and God’s commitment to show His Son love, mercy, kindness, gentleness, patience, goodness and any other God emanating virtue we can conceive, we have these joy producing blessings “in Christ” and in Christ alone.

Solus Christus!

Interesting Comments

The Murphy’s, said, “I am not a Christian. Yet,I am a follower of Jesus."

How can you not want to hold to the title “Christian”? Yet you say you are "a follower Christ". The two are one in the same. I like the verses that emram quoted to you: Acts 11.26; 26.28; 1 Pet. 4.16. Perhaps you should check these out.

The Murphy’s, said, “If I said I were a Christian you would think that I agree with Ray(and the many others), I have always had a problem with Ray and his methods.”

Ray isn’t perfect and I would have a problem with “his” methods too. But they aren’t “his methods”. Using the law in evangelism is biblical (Rom 3:19) and many wonderful men of old (Spurgeon, Whitefield, Wesley, Moody, Calvin, etc.) used the law. Ray isn’t coming up with something new. It’s old truth. Taken from the scriptures and used by men of old down through the ages. Not sure what your problem is. Perhaps it’s with the scriptures and not with Ray.

The Murphy’s said, “Though Ray would think I am not a Christian, I am sure, and that I am liberal one at that.”

Why would Ray not think you’re a Christian? Have you talked to him?

The Murphy’s said, “Here's my suggestion to "Christians" in talking to our fellow brothers and sisters in this blog called "unbelievers"”

Unbelievers are not our “brothers and sisters”. Not sure why you are using these terms. This is not how a Christian should be talking. No where in the Word of God do we see that unbelievers are called our “brothers and sisters”. You are either in Adam or you are in Christ. And those that are in Christ are our brethren.

The Murphy’s said, “3. Lose, lose this battle.Its ok, as you believe, God is really big.”

Not sure what you mean by this.

The Murphy’s said, “Last, if you believe God is really big, then why aren't you talking to "unbelievers" about their soul.”

Not sure why you keep using quotes around the word “unbelievers”. They are unbelievers. An atheist doesn’t believe in God. Let’s look at a basic definition taken off the web of the word “unbeliever”. 1. One who lacks belief or faith, especially in a particular religion; a nonbeliever. 2. Someone who denies the existence of god 3. A person who does not manifest devotion to a deity. And I’m not sure if you have read any of my past posts and comments, but the gospel (which is the best thing for anyone's soul) has been presented many times.

The Murphy’s said, “Their soul is yearning to hear something real and authentic, not lies, and gospel selling tactics.”

Again, I’m not sure if you’ve been reading any of my comments or other Christian’s comments here on this blog. But we are consistantly attempting to share the everlasting Gospel of Jesus Christ with the unbelievers. That's my concern. Listen to one of the latest comments directed from a believer to an atheist "I'll pray for you, I mean...I've been praying for you and I want you to commit to me that when you are converted you'll let me know or at least Trish know. I have been talking to God about you and so has Trish. I pray that He breaks in on your hearts and that you'll fall to your knees and cry out to Him for mercy. That's what I did. He broke in on my world when I was 19 yrs old and I've never been the same. All I know was I was blind and now I see." And I said this, "...we can only plead with you and say look into the mirror of the 10 commandments and see how you measure up. You are guilty. You need the only one who can present you blameless to God, namely...Christ!"

The Murphy's, what can be more “real” more “authentic” than that? The Murphy’s said, "I am not talking about pointing out all of their sins either"

We don't point out their sins. The 10 Commandments do. God’s Word does. When we use God’s law…it’s like a mirror that shows us our true state before a holy God. It shows us that we are dirty. That we have sinned and that we need to be washed with the blood of Christ. The Commandments point out my sins, your sins and the worlds sins. “Now we know that whatever the Law says, it speaks to those who are under the Law, so that every mouth may be closed and all the world may become accountable to God; because by the works of the Law no flesh will be justified in His sight; for through the Law comes the knowledge of sin.” Romans 3:19. And the hope is that the sinner will see that they need the Savior (Jesus Christ) and that He is the only one that can wash the sinner clean. When you have G.E. (an atheist) saying that what you have said is “nice” there is a huge problem with your message. G.E. denies God. And more specifically…he denies the God of the bible. He has suppressed the truth in unrighteousness. He doesn’t believe the bible. It should concern you that in your post you have done the very thing that you say we aren’t doing. Where is your gospel presentation to all the atheists?

Quote of the year

“It was quite refreshing one night to find in the inquiry room a young man who thought he was not worth saving, he was so vile and wicked. There was hope for him because he was so desperately in earnest about his soul. He thought he was worthless. He had a sight of himself in God’s looking glass and had a very poor opinion of himself. One can always tell when a man is a great way from God–for he is always talking about himself, and how good he is. But the moment he sees God by the eye of faith, he is down on his knees, and, like Job, he cries, "Behold, I am vile." All his goodness flees away.” D.L. Moody

BBC airs program about a young girl who loves to evangelize

The BBC recently aired a documentary called Deborah 13: Servant of God. It's about Deborah Drapper a homeschooled 13 year old Christian girl who is unlike most teenagers. She loves to share her faith. She has a clear understanding that time is short here on earth and that eternity is forever. She even uses some of my favorite tracts while she's out on the streets. :-)

Deborah emailed me a while back about this upcoming broadcast and for the past couple of days we've been talking back and forth via email. She is a precious young lady. Today she emailed and shared how she has been flooded with so many emails that she doesn't know what to with all of them. One email was from a gentleman who wrote to her dad after watching the program. Here's what he writes:

"Recently, I have become more and more aware of my "Sins" and my need to be saved, this awareness has been made all the stronger by my health problems. Also, I feel as though something is missing in my life, something that cannot be filled by anything worldly. Most of all, I am starting to realize how much control I have been holding onto in my life, I have completely failed to recognize God's rights over my life. Maybe this heart problem is just a wakeup call. I am ready now, to give my life to God, to do whatever God directs me to do, and go wherever he wants me to go."

Please pray for Deborah, her dad (Andrew) and her entire family as this broadcast has opened up wonderful doors for them to proclaim the gospel.

I watched the entire 6 part series this morning and thought you would be encouraged by it as well. If you're in the U.K you can view it HERE (For 6 days only). And if you're in the U.S. you can view it here (in 6 parts):
Here is part 1 of 6:

Part 1 of 6. Part 2 of 6.

Stewart has a problem...

Stuart was on Hour 1 of Wretched Radio with Todd Friel on Thursday, Feb. 26 2009. Stuart was a Buddhist monk that held to an atheistic worldview. If you remember, he had a few problems. Perhaps you might be able to help him out...

More comments and an apology from an atheist

Sorry for the delays in my responses. I've been out of the state for speaking engagements.

Logic Lad said, "Trish, i have only been reading Ray's blog for a little while and i have to support G.E.'s point here, Ray insists on using straw man fallacies and clearly incorrect statements in his posts, he even repeats the same statements after he has been corrected, once could be a mistake but twice is deliberate, deliberatly saying something you know to be false in lieing."

I'm not sure what he repeats or where he uses strawman fallacies but I'm sure if he is in the wrong about something he would correct it. I know Ray. And I know that he cares about truth and he cares (as do I) where you will spend all eternity. Ray doesn’t try to come to you with persuasive speech—he just comes with Gospel truth.

Logic Lad said, "I am sure he is completly accurate in his quoting of scripture, however that is not what GE is talking about. besides i am sure there is something in the bible about the devil using scripture to mislead, i am not suggesting that Ray is evil, arrogant and opininated perhaps but not evil, but simplt because he can quote scripture does not mean that he always tells the truth."

True. It is very important to quote scripture accurately and in its full context and to the best of my knowledge Ray does that. So I'm sorry I'm not quite sure what he would be lying about. He is a simple man, just using scripture. Perhaps you’re argument is with scripture and not Ray.

Logic Lad said, "Again with this prove that x is false, you are making, or supporting an extraordinary claim, it is for you to display evidence that it is true, untill then i will continue to act in all ways as if it is false, otherwise we are stuck back or Bertrands Teapot."

I have made my arguments in past posts. I have stated in previous posts that it is impossible for you to reason and have an intelligible conversation with out hypocritically borrowing from the biblical worldview in order to make sense of your own. Remember, you have to assert that there is a God in order to deny one. And don’t forget that Christ is the only answer to your problem with sin. He is the only one that can present you blameless before God. Listen to your conscience. You know you have broken the 10 commandments. You have lied. I’m sure you have looked with lust. James 2:10 says, "For whoever keeps the whole law and yet stumbles at just one point is guilty of breaking all of it." That means you are in deep trouble when you stand before God on judgment day--when you will be judged according to your works.

For Maxx, Thanks for adding the link to Penn's video. Maxx said, "To me, that is what Trish was explaining to G.E. as why she must warn him of the wrath of God"

Yes. I posted his quote because it seemed to me that Penn (being an atheist) sees the importance and understands whey the Christian would be compelled to share their faith. And he can’t understand why the Christian wouldn’t warn people if he believes they are going to hell. I do this because I am compelled to. I do this because the bible says that if sinners don't repent and cling to Christ they will perish. I do this because I was blind and now I see. The world makes total sense to me now. God's fingerprints are everywhere. In the snowflake that falls from the sky. In the child that is born and breaths for the first time. I see His fingerprints when I'm tempted to sin and I'm convicted by His Spirit. I do what I do because I've come to realize that Christ is the only one who can bring peace between man and God. That Christ is the only one that can make you hunger and thirst for righteousness. Jesus said, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” Christ is the only one who can reconcile us to God.

“Once you were alienated from God and were enemies in your minds because of your evil behavior. But now he has reconciled you by Christ's physical body through death to present you holy in his sight, without blemish and free from accusation— if you continue in your faith, established and firm, not moved from the hope held out in the gospel. This is the gospel that you heard and that has been proclaimed to every creature under heaven, and of which I, Paul, have become a servant.” Col 1:21-23

When I read about the dead being judged it compels me to action:

"Then I saw a great white throne and him who was seated on it. Earth and sky fled from his presence, and there was no place for them. And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Another book was opened, which is the book of life. The dead were judged according to what they had done as recorded in the books. The sea gave up the dead that were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead that were in them, and each person was judged according to what he had done. Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. The lake of fire is the second death. If anyone's name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire." Rev 20: 11-15

Logic Lad said, “I apologise for making it look like i was accusing Trish of lieing, having carefully reread her origianl post it is clear what her meaning is. I shall take away the lesson that i should really read what is written. Having watched the video i fully appreciate the sentiment that if you believe then you have to do as much as you can to help those you percieve as lost. I will try to bare this in mind when addressing future posts. I understand why you feel the need to convert people, however that does not mean that i have to agree with you..."

Thanks, Logic Lad. I understand.

Logic Lad continues, "...I believe that religion leads society into horrible dark places, what would it say of me if i did not try to protect others from it?”

You’re right. Religion does. But Christianity doesn’t. The God of Christianity is just and true, kind and loving. Everything He does is right.

“He who would love life
And see good days,
Let him refrain his tongue from evil,
And his lips from speaking deceit.
Let him turn away from evil and do good;
Let him seek peace and pursue it.
For the eyes of the LORD are on the righteous,
And His ears are open to their prayers;
But the face of the LORD is against those who do evil.” (1 Peter 3:10-12)

Get Educated said, "He might even mislead my reading by interpreting the Bible the wrong way."

True. Ray is just a man. He is not perfect nor does he claim to be. I'm not perfect either--just forgiven by a good God. Here's what I suggest...if you can't read his bible and you won't take me up on the offer for a free copy, then perhaps you would purchase a bible with no commentary. You can also go to and read the entirety of the Bible online. Could I send you one without commentary? Would you read it??

Get Educated said, "...strawman. Something made to "appear" like the right thing, but that is much easier to attack and defeat (like fighting against a man made of straw)."

I'm very familiar with this type of argument. Here's my question to you, is the biblical account regarding man being created by God and being made male and female, not reliable? The text in Genesis 1:27 says, "So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them." I believe this. I take this account as a literal account. As an accurate account. As one that is true. There are many theists that have gone ahead and said, “Well, evolution is a fine theory, but God must have created it.” But I reject this. The Bible doesn’t teach this. And if we can tamper, disregard and twist the very first chapter of the Bible then we might as well disregard, tamper and twist the rest of the Bible.

Belief in evolutionary theory is a matter of sheer faith. And dogmatic belief in any naturalistic theory is no more “scientific” than any other kind of religious faith. Evolution is a philosophy.

Did you hear about Michael Ruse? He's an evolutionist who testified in the 1980's at the Arkansas creationism trial (McLean v. Arkansas). During the trial, he claimed that creationism is a religion because it is grounded in unproven philosophical assumptions. But Darwinism is a science, he said, "because it requires no philosophical or religious presuppositions". Ruse has since admitted that he was wrong, and he now acknowledges that evolution “is metaphysically based”—grounded in unproven beliefs that are no more “scientific” than the set of beliefs on which creationism is based. See Tom Woodward, “Ruse Gives Away the Store: Admits Evolution Is a Philosophy” on the “Origins” Web site.

G.E. said, "So, even if you were truly able to convince me that "the Bible does not lie", Ray does. So, if by implication of the Bible not lying evolution were false, then it would be false. Yet, it would still not be the same as the strawman Ray talks about."

What matters here is that the Word of God is true. Ray is just human and so am I. We are not perfect. But "Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him.” Prov 30:5. God's word is reliable and trust worthy. He can be in error about things, as can I, but if he is giving you scripture…then your argument is with scripture and not with Ray. Again, we can't convince you about this...we can only plead with you and say look into the mirror of the 10 commandments and see how you measure up. You are guilty. You need the only one who can present you blameless to God, namely...Christ!

Enter To Win a Copy of "The Atheist Bible"

Many of you are familiar with Ray Comfort's blog "Atheist Central" and when I first heard about Ray coming out with The Atheist Bible I just had to laugh. Ray is so creative with coming up with new ways to reach skeptics and atheists with the gospel.

"The Atheist Bible" is the Holman Bible Outreach" version, without any changes to the text. The only additions inside the bible are the commentary portions written by Ray. Whether you are certain that there is no God, or you are not sure if God exists, this Bible is for you. It addresses several things:

* Why Christianity?
* Atheist arguments
* “Contradictions” in the Bible
* The ten most common mistakes atheists make
* Questions atheists can’t definitively answer
* When famous atheists met their Maker
* A conversation with an atheist

Here's a quick peek inside at one of the most common mistakes skeptics make.

Matthew 7:1 says, ""Do not judge, or you too will be judged."

And here's Ray's commentary on that verse:

"Skeptics often quote this when confronted with their sin. But these words are directed at Christians who are judging each other. Notice the word brother used several times in this passage."

Click here for the whole context of Matthew 7:1-6.

More Atheist Comments

G.E. wrote, "Just to be clear. I do know you mean well when you offer those books by Ray. I am not being sarcastic. Am I curious? Nope. If I truly wanted to get into understanding Christianity and perhaps changing my views about the existence of any God, Ray would be among the last authors I would go and read. Ray demonstrates that you can make a living out of lying about the perceived enemies of Christianity. Other than that, nothing of value."

Thanks G.E. and sorry for the delay in my response. Things are busy around here. I appreciate your patience. I haven't asked you yet what he is lying about. How can he be lying? He quotes the scriptures and stands on biblical truth. The only other explanation would be that God is lying and we've already established that that can't happen.

You said, "In any event, I never heard of a Bible edited for atheists"

I know I had never heard of it as well. Leave it to Ray Comfort though. He's always coming up with new and fresh ways to reach those that don't know Christ. I have several to give a way to atheists. Too bad you weren't one. :-)

Just to give you a quick example of the inside. "The Atheist Bible" is the the Holman Bible Outreach" version, without any changes to the text. The only additions inside the bible are the commentary portions.

For example, speaking about the Christian before he was saved and what Christ did on the cross for the Christian... listen to what Colossians 2: 13-14 says (again, this is taken out of the Atheist Bible): "When you were dead in your transgressions and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He made you alive together with Him, having forgiven us all our transgressions, having canceled out the certificate of debt consisting of decrees against us, which was hostile to us; and He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross."

And Ray's commentary says the following, "With each sin, we rack up dept to the Law, and will have hell to pay."

And another example: Colossians 3:6 says, "Because of these the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience..."

Here's Ray's commentary on that particular verse, "It is a deep concern for the unsaved that makes the Christian want to warn this world that God is not a celestial Santa Claus. He is holy, righteous, and just. It is because of these eternal attributes that He sees those who disobey His Law as children of wrath. See John 3:36."

G.E. Can you give me evidence that proves that God's wrath is NOT upon the sons of disobedience? I have found none. It will be a fearful day for those who do not have Christ atoning fo their sins. Please flee the wrath of God to come by trusting in Christ today.

I know I sound like a broken record but I can't help it. I must warn you. And now I'll quote from the mouth of Penn Gillette (the famous atheist--who said of himself "I am beyond atheist"), This will explain why I do what I do. Here's Penn's quote, "If you believe that there’s a Heaven and Hell, and people could be going to Hell, or not getting eternal life, or whatever, and you think that, well it’s not really worth telling them this because it would make it socially awkward . . . How much do you have to hate somebody to believe that everlasting life is possible and not tell them that? I mean if I believed beyond a shadow of a doubt that a truck was coming at you, and you didn’t believe it, and that truck was bearing down on you -- there is a certain point where I tackle you --and this is more important than that."

The Christian Women Online March Cover is Here!

I mentioned in the beginning of February that I had an interview with Sunny Shell from Christian Women Online. If you remember we met at the University of North Texas in Denton. We had a wonderful time and this is the result of our meeting. I'm excited about this interview because it's the first time that Christian Women Online has done a video interview but not only's their first time to cover a story on evangelism as well.

Special Thanks to Darlene and Sunny!
In addition to all that, don't forget to stop by
