Thank You Note: A Time for the Lord and the Body Life

These past two weeks have been hectic. I'm a person who can only do one thing at a time, but it seems like life is always a whirlwind of simultaneous happenings. Now when things get busy, it's very easy to shortchange my personal time with the Lord, my Bible reading, my spiritual nourishment. Not a good thing.
Yet thanks to the training I have received from FTTA, regardless of my current condition, deep within I always know where I need to be. I need to MAKE TIME for the Lord, to be in His presence.

Actually, on the human level, there exist four kinds of people in society:  Ones who have no sense of history and are not interested in history.Ones who study and pay ext…

Vote on Election Day 2012

Well, I'm not an expert in politics, but tomorrow will be a big day.  Election Day 2012 is TOMORROW! Since I haven't been faithful in being informed about the presidential candidates, I have no clue which one would be the best person in the office. But I was recently touched that although I don't have to be pro-this or pro-that, for the Lord's interest, I must be saved from passivity.
In recent years, it has been as if the country is plagued with lawlessness, abnormality, and immorality. I don't feel the need to expound further. You can just grab a newspaper and check out the headlines, you'll know what I'm talking about.
If you consider deeper the current situation of the nation, you'll soon find that relativism is so prevalent. Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy defines: "Relativism is not a single doctrine but a family of views whose common theme is that some central aspect of experience, thought, evaluation, or even reality is somehow relati…
