Central to Christianity is the resurrection of Jesus Christ. And only the Christian faith claims an empty tomb for its founder. Islam possesses bizarre beliefs for explaining away the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
How much booze Americans are tossing back? It turns out that the amount is astonishing. 1 in 6, or 37 million, adults binge drink about once a week.
Freedom is a very spiritual thing. It's a part of our being made in the glorious image of our Maker. Nevertheless, with the gift of liberty there also comes danger.
