What I cannot do is boil down free will or predestination/election to a simple, child-friendly explanation that doesn’t pit God against family members.
However…are you ready to die? I think that is a valid question everyone, whether they think they are a believer or not, needs to ask themselves. Are you confident that have been washed in the blood of the Lamb?

Two weeks later she had a massive brain hemorrhage. And although my mom did not die, thank God, our lives have all profoundly… Continue reading My Mom
I know this post is ill-timed, what with the celebration of the birth of Jesus right around the corner and all, but I have to “get this out.” Many of you have followed along with my tale of our sleep deprivation over the past two years.
