Several weeks ago Nancy was diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer. Since then, with lots of prayer and some skilled surgeons, her prognosis has gone from bad to looking pretty good. She still has a long road to recovery that includes radiation and other medical procedures. We greatly appreciate your prayers.
The fight against parental rights has been going on for fifty years and will continue until nations realize that the relationship between a parent and child is not one instituted and protected by the State, but by God.
If you grew up in the 1950s you may have had the childhood experience many of us had. At school, you were expected to behave and if you didn’t, you were disciplined. You would either have your desk moved out into the hallway (an early version of “time out”) or you took a trip to the principal’s office.
After school, you went outside and played and you knew you had to come home when the streetlights came on.
In either case, if you got in trouble, the teacher or neighborhood mother would take care of things immediately and the only plea you had besides “I didn’t do it” was “Please don’t tell my parents!”
That was truly a time when you were a product of the community in which you lived.
Why then was there such as stir when MSNBC weekend host Melissa Harris-Perry went on the air with an advertisement now airing in which she said that our children were everyone’s responsibility?
The powers of the world seek to twist God’s Word to their own purposes and persecute those who view the Bible as saying what it means and meaning what it says.
God’s Word declares that God is knowable, and knowing Him is the privilege set before us. In previous articles in Personal Update we discussed how the physical world reflects the Bible and how precise analysis of the Bible (e.g. rightly dividing the Word of truth) can lead to precise scientific examination of the physical world, both of which bear fruit.
While honest science, operating alone, cannot arrive at God, it does indeed point directly to Him. The Bible operates in a similar way. This is why the powers of the world seek to twist both to their own purposes, and to persecute those who view the Bible as saying what it means and meaning what it says.
Is Rome actually moving the religious world toward a definite revelation, a momentous disclosure concerning extraterrestrial intelligence that will impact the religion of Christianity?
Cris Putnam and I fully expect a barrage of criticism from all sides from the release of our new book, Exo-Vaticana. On one hand, many who believe space aliens are visiting Earth from other galaxies are going to take offense, and, on the other hand, many skeptical Christians will charge us with sensationalism. However, we believe we have good grounds for the ideas behind this book, and if one is willing to engage in the arguments, they will stand up to scrutiny. Even so, a few caveats are in order:
First: The UFO/ET subject is murky water, to say the least. But once the hoaxes, hallucinations, and nonsense are extracted, there is a genuine unexplained phenomenon.
Second: We are not taking a hard line on the existence of extraterrestrial life, but we do make a case for why we are skeptical.
Third: We are not generalizing that all paranormal (another vague category) phenomena are necessarily demonic, but we are basing our epistemology on the proven guide to the supernatural, the sixty-six books of the Bible.
Since God has the technology to create us in the first place, He certainly has the technology to get a message to us. But how does He authenticate His message?
It may seem old-fashioned to take the Bible seriously, especially in our modern age of scientific discoveries and multicultural emphases. It has become politically correct to deny the existence of absolutes and to deny the involvement of our Creator in our affairs. And yet there are many intellectual and well-informed people who take the Bible very seriously—who even regard its origin as supernatural. Why?
My own personal background has been in the information sciences—computers, communication, cryptography, and the like. With graduate degrees in engineering and business, and having spent a 30-year career in the corporate boardrooms of over a dozen high-tech enterprises, I have become most profoundly impressed by two astonishing discoveries:
God’s Love has not only saved our marriage, it has turned it around to where it’s a hundred times better than it ever was—even when we were first married.
Three months ago, Nancy Missler was diagnosed with melanoma cancer and it had progressed into a tumor in the back of her nose. There have been many agonizing surgeries and unexpected medical challenges that she has had to overcome. At the time this issue was going to press, Nan was recovering from her latest surgery. We at The King’s High Way Ministries chose to bring back an archived article that was written for Personal Update in the late ’90s.
Since June is traditionally the popular month for weddings, we decided to focus on Chuck and Nan’s marriage testimony. What a blessing to see how the Agape message has impacted and transformed not only their marriage but many marriages and relationships worldwide. We continue to receive hundreds of emails, phone calls, ministry visits and letters testifying how much this message has revolutionized their understanding of God’s Love. This truly is the message for the Body of Christ for the times we are living in. We hope you enjoy as Nan shares the earlier years of their marriage:
