Raw reactions after seeing the (exciting) movie—“The Fool”


“Ray Comfort is probably the very bottom of the creationist barrel. He is the worst of the bunch.” — Professor P.Z. Myers

“There is no refutation of Darwinian evolution in existence. If a refutation ever were to come about, it would come from a scientist, and not an idiot [Comfort].” — Professor Richard Dawkins

“You know you’ve made it when you’re in a Ray Comfort film.” — Jaclyn Glenn

When God Wants To Drill A Man

Dear Friends,

When God wants to drill a man,
And thrill a man,
And skill a man
When God wants to mold a man
To play the noblest part;

When He yearns with all His heart
To create so great and bold a man
That all the world shall be amazed,
Watch His methods, watch His ways!

How He ruthlessly perfects
Whom He royally elects!
How He hammers him and hurts him,
And with mighty blows converts him

Into trial shapes of clay which
Only God understands;
While his tortured heart is crying
And he lifts beseeching hands!

How He bends but never breaks
When his good He undertakes;
How He uses whom He chooses,
And with every purpose fuses him;
By every act induces him
To try His splendor out –
God knows what He’s about.

Have a great day!

God’s School of Brokenness

Dr. Charles Swindoll, Chancellor of Dallas Seminary and Senior Pastor of Stonebriar Community Church, reflects on the reality that God crushes His servants in order to make them most useful for ministry.

Charles R. Swindoll has devoted his life to the accurate, practical teaching and application of God’s Word and His grace. A pastor at heart, Chuck has served as the founder and senior pastor-teacher of Stonebriar Community Church in Frisco, TX.

His leadership as president and now chancellor of Dallas Theological Seminary has helped prepare and equip a new generation for ministry. Chuck and his wife Cynthia, have four grown children, ten grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren.

Below an encouraging interview Dr. Swindoll
had with Joni about her struggles.
