Dr. Kent Brantly has officially been discharged from Emory University Hospital in Atlanta and was sure to thank God and those responsible for helping him recover from the deadly Ebola virus.
"Today is a miraculous day," Brantly said at the news conference. "I am thrilled to be alive, to be well, and to be reunited with my family."
Brantly, a doctor with Samaritan's Purse, and another missionary, Nancy Writebol, both contracted the disease while working in Liberia. They were flown back to the United States earlier this month for specialized treatment at Emory University, which has one of the nation's best Ebola treatment facilities. The two were treated with an experimental drug, ZMapp, and were under constant monitoring and hydration. more >>
Many of us are afraid of doing things just because it may ruin our appearance. Such as, running in the rain because we don't want to get wet. For those who have tried it, can definitely say that it is AWESOME!
Most people would put their lives on hold just to stay dry. But life is about taking chances and trying new things we never thought we would enjoy. It is the small things in life such as, running out in the rain and getting a little wet, that is a reward for living.

In the wake of the gruesome beheading of American journalist, James Wright Foley, it is important to remember that the growing threat of radical Islam is very real.
Next month will mark 13 years since the tragic terror attacks on September 11th, 2001 as well as two years since the attacks in Benghazi. Evil is real and the threat of terrorism exists.
With growing unrest in the Middle East as well as other international crises, it is imperative that we are active in our efforts to combat these threats and to send a message that America is truly exceptional. more >>
After God created the world, one of the first things that concerned Him was that we did not go through life alone. He said in Genesis 2:18, "It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make him a helper suitable for him." So along with creating this beautiful earth, God also created marriage between a man and woman.
Unfortunately, right after that was the fall of man in Genesis 3. It would change things forever, and one area where we can see sin is in the marriage relationship. Divorce is a very common thing lately, even for churchgoers that are strong in faith.
The topic of divorce has many scriptures that we can look to for answers. Whether it be about divorce being allowed, what happens when a spouse dies, and what Jesus had to say about divorce while he was still on earth. more >>
Atheist author Richard Dawkins is under heavy criticism on social media after stating that unborn babies with Down syndrome need to be aborted and that parents should "try again" to conceive. Pro-life group Live Action has slammed the comments as "sick and twisted."
"Abort it and try again. It would be immoral to bring it into the world if you have the choice," Dawkins said Wednesday in response to a Twitter user wondering what she would do if pregnant with a child with Down syndrome.
The evolutionary biologist posted a series of further Tweets defending his argument, with another message reading: "If I were a woman with a DS fetus I personally would abort. So do most women in fact. If you wouldn't, good luck to you, it's your decision." more >>
Claiming Muhammad or Islam is peaceful is like claiming a toddler has won the Tour de France. No spectator or sports enthusiast would ever take seriously a toddler racing a bike. But, they'd have to take seriously a well-invested and trained adult, especially if the race tore through their town.
Groups like the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas, and ISIS are not extremists. The Harvard Chaplain who claims death and the Ground Zero Imam who claims imprisonment for those who leave Islam are not isolated extremists. They are following Muhammad's instructions, living in the stage of Islam applicable to their socio-political environment.
Islam, like an athlete's development, exists in stages. To understand this, one must first understand key Islamic texts. more >>
