ARTICLES I LIKE FROM AROUND THE WEB: (Click title to go to full article) Be a Parent Worthy of Honor – “For a number of weeks, I have been exploring the fifth commandment and, in particular, how adult children are to obey it. ‘Honor your father and your mother, as the LORD your God commanded you, that your days may be long, and that it may go well with you in the land that the LORD your God is giving you.’ While heeding this command is relatively straightforward to the young child under the authority of his parents, it is much more difficult to know what it entails for adult children.

t has been said that there is a “God-sized hole” in every person. In other words, the human heart was designed to want and need God. It’s a kind of fingerprint that God leaves on the souls of those created in His image (Gen. 1:26-27). Here’s the rub, not every person acknowledges or believes that God exists. How then do we explain this? In John Calvin’s Institutes of the Christian Religion, he makes a case for “the knowledge of God implanted in the human mind”.1 Because it is often argued that religion is a man-made invention to subjugate the masses, Calvin points to indigenous tribes of people who are fully convinced of the existence of God. Furthermore, almost uniformly, these … Read More
