The Youth to Be Like Christ I have a deep interest in the youth, and I greatly desire to see them striving to perfect Christian characters, seeking by diligent study and earnest prayer to gain the training essential for acceptable service in the cause of God.

Secrets to Success from the Book of Daniel, Part 5: The Feast of Fools

Secrets to Success from the Book of Daniel, Part 5: The Feast of Fools

During his long life at the Babylonian court, Daniel must have participated in many feasts. But only one is recorded in his book and is perhaps the most dramatic episode of the entire story.

The Case for Last Generation Theology, Part 8: The Great Controversy and God’s Vindication

We were here to view One Child Nation, a documentary about the China one-child policy. We may be a little more interested than most because our son was born in China and we adopted him a year ago. He was b
