Global headlines reveal nature’s unleashed cataclysmic energy, with moving images of crowds hording around emergency relief (grain that is reducing in global yield), and, on the other hand, of lifeless androids announcing China’s plan to eliminate the one child policy over threats to its industrial superorgy.

Day of Discovery

Jimmy DeYoung and Mart De Haan will be joined by several noted Bible scholars. Together they’ll explore questions skeptics often ask about Jesus. His friends said He walked on water. His critics said He was an imposter. Is there historical evidence to prove His claim to be God’s Son or was he just a man, or a fictitious character made up by a group of religious fanatics?

Combining the insights of Biblical authorities with visits to places Jesus lived and walked, we’ll give you some convincing arguments that will strengthen your faith and help you respond to the skeptics and seekers you encounter.

Repost, in case you missed it.

Warning

This video may contain images depicting the reality and horror of war/violence and should only be viewed by a mature audience.

Mr. President, Easter has nothing to do with war. Please stop trying to make Jesus fit with your outlook on war and international relations. You just cheapen both.
