Does God Exist to Make Man Happy?

dan delzell opinion page

God has always existed, and He was perfectly fine without man. The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit were already having a good time together. Everything they do is good and fulfilling, and so they didn't need man in order to be complete. Nevertheless, God chose to create man and, through worship, allow him to get in on the joy.

If God were to invite you to enter heaven today, would you take Him up on it? Imagine God telling you: "This is a one-time offer. And if you accept it today, you will never go back to earth. But you will be guaranteed eternal life in paradise."

9/11 in New York City: Liberty and Prayer for All

Paul de Vries portrait

Thirteen years have passed since the tragic terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center Twin Towers. We remember that day as if it were yesterday. Two years ago I wrote on our reflections on 9/11. Much has changed, yet what matters remains the same.

The Root of 9/11: Bad Theology

Jerry Newcombe

But there's another factor as well, and that deals with the personal motivation of the hijackers. 9/11 happened because of bad theology. Nineteen men believed the promise that if they died in a state of Jihad, they would go to Paradise and receive their 72 virgins. Nineteen men sought assurance of salvation in the wrong place and killed thousands of innocent people on the way.

A 9-1-1 for 9/11

Derrick G. Jeter

On a beautiful New England morning I was driving from Boston to Rhode Island to visit a client. The morning air was crisp and fresh. The sun had just enough warmth to keep the chill at bay. The sky was a stunning hue of blue. It was one of those days that made you wish you worked outside. That is how the morning of September 11, 2001, began. It ended in ugliness and rubble - and 3,000 of our fellow citizens dead.

Obama and Presidential Hubris

Wallace Henley Portrait

When a nation's chief executive presumes to be the sole judge of what's "right" for his nation he has crossed the fine line between a government "of the people, by the people, and for the people" and a regime that cavalierly sets aside what might be the will of the people for the chief's own idea of what is "right." Such a person has gone from being a leader to a controller.

"I have never before seen it this way," said a close friend of mine in a recent hour-long conversation discussing current global turmoil. "Do you realize what you just said?" I replied. "We are both in our 70s, and have lived through a lot of history, and yet we agree that there are things happening now more intense and wide-sweeping than anything we have seen before."

Book Excerpt: Jesus on Trial: A Lawyer Affirms the Truth of the Gospel

David Limbaugh

Indeed, I will confess that I am convinced there was a conspiracy in the authorship of the Bible, but that it was a divine conspiracy, and that God Himself was the force behind the singular, remarkable integration that I witness each time I read it. I am certain that this alone could be as convincing a proof as many will ever need that this book was given to us by God.

IS (Islamic State): A Civilizational Threat

Richard Land Portrait

This is what makes IS such a grave threat to the civilized world. The closest analogy to IS in modern history is the U.S.S.R. (The Union of Soviet Socialist Republics), which was dedicated to imposing communism worldwide, heedless of national boundaries.

7 Steps to Stand Up to Stop Bullying

June Hunt - Opinion page size

I am truly grieved that Lynzee Benoit never had the chance to meet Bart Palosz. She would have warmed Bart's heart with words of encouragement, assuring him that his towering stature, Polish accent and pockmarked face couldn't keep the God of the universe from lavishing His love upon him. And Lynzee would have undergirded Bart's spirit with truth, the truth that the God who so loved him also had a unique role for him in this world, a role that ultimately would lead to indescribable fulfillment.
