I never use Snopes or fact check for my information.If you do your research, you will find that both Snopes and fact check get their information the same place you do, off the internet and a great deal from left wing writers. Less than 5% of their so-called truth facts comes from the source.
Clay jars were containers created by skilled potters who took raw clay, shaped and molded it as they desired, and then baked the clay until it was hard. They then painted, glazed, or decorated the jars for whatever purpose they had in mind. In ancient times,
Do you guys remember the story of Aron Ralston? They made a movie about his ordeal called 127 hours. He was climbing in Utah when a boulder moved and pinned his arm against a canyon wall. He tried everything to remove the boulder.
The Book of Judges tells us of a time in history when everyone did what was right in their own eyes. And the Book of Isaiah gives this warning: "Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!" (5:20).
This verse comes from one of my favorite passages of Scripture, John 14:1-6. Verse 2 has to be one of the most comforting verses in the Bible. Think about it, we don't have to be worried, stressed out or troubled in our hearts because, as Christians, our destination is eternal life in Heaven.
If you are a true Christian, then you should desire to know and walk in the will of God. You may not be doing it but there is a desire to do so. I find myself busier today than when I pastored. God’s given me a strong desire to help Pastor’s, Churches, Missionaries, Missions and the needy.

“And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil:” Matthew 6:13 I think a better translation is, “And don't let us yield to temptation, but rescue us from the evil one.” God is omniscient, which means that He is all-knowing. God is omnipotent, which means that He is all-powerful. And God is omnipresent, which means that He is present everywhere.
When I first became a Christian, other believers would warn me to be careful, because the devil would tempt me. That was the craziest thing I had ever heard. The what is going to tempt me? I thought this was an over exaggerated statement.
“For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.” This great verse is saying that God knew his people in advance, and he chose us to become like his Son so that his Son
Have you ever noticed when you give a nice expensive gift to a child they are initially exited and think at the time it’s the most awesome toy in the world? They play with it for endless hours and devote so much time and energy to it. Eventually the newness and excitement wear off and the new shiny toy ends up at the bottom of the toy box, neglected and forgotten.
When you read John 13 a dialogue took place at the Lord’s supper table and at this point, He has predicted his betrayal, told his disciples that He is going away and cannot follow, and told Peter that he will deny Him 3 times.
