• Its an election year! For months now, the media, families, coworkers school discussion groups and even Sunday School classes have been thinking about, discussing and debating a vast array of issues, the merits (or lack thereof) of the Republican hopefuls for the presidency and the chances of the current president being elected to a second term. Everyone has an opinion and today, there are more ways of communicating your opinion than ever before.

  • "What did you say that for?" Its a simple question, and not very eloquent, but it is rather thought-provoking. We have asked this question of others and of ourselves, usually after we felt regret for something hurtful, harmful or inappropriate that we said. These days, politicians, sports figures and hollywood stars have to guard their words, their responses and their opinions often expressed through electronic forms of communication.

  • Apparently, one can read some interesting things on the Facebook pages of friends and family. Everything from how a person feels at any given moment to what their pet did that day is expressed by Facebook users. But many people I know who use Facebook are beginning to wonder if this information is useful. 

  • I confess; I'm not on Facebook, I don't tweet on Twitter or tumble on tumblr. I don't maintain my own personal web page and I only use text messaging in rare instances. I do use email and tried Skype a few times. But when it comes to communication, I prefer letter-writing and talking face-to-face. 

  • Unlike the question “Does God exist?” very few people question whether Jesus Christ existed. It is generally accepted that Jesus was truly a man who walked on the earth in Israel 2000 years ago. The debate begins when the subject of Jesus' full identity is discussed. Almost every major religion teaches that Jesus was a prophet or a good teacher or a godly man. The problem is that the Bible tells us that Jesus was infinitely more than a prophet, a good teacher, or a godly man.
