The Psalm I chose was Psalm 100. It is a Psalm of thanksgiving in which the Psalm talks about how God has made us and guided us towards him and when the time has come to meet him we will greet him with thankfulness and gladness. The message the author expresses is how we should love and serve God and come before his presence with joy and thanks. The author expresses the endless love and kindness he has with us for eternity. It is important that we thank God for all his wondrous deeds of love He has made to us and that we return our love and faithfulness. Emotions the author might be feeling are love, gratitude, and faithfulness. I have felt these same emotions when my grandpa had major surgery. I prayed to God for a long time the night before, asking for a safe and successful surgery. When my grandpa’s surgery was a success, I was overwhelmed with love towards God for answering my prayer. I was really grateful that my grandpa was still with me, and it was all because of my faith and trust in God. A phrase that stood out to me was “It is he who has made us, and we are his. We are his people, and the sheep of his pasture”. I really liked this quote because it really sums up how God made us in his own image and likeness. It expresses how he is like our shepherd and we are his sheep, as he loves us and keeps us safe. God speaks to me through this Psalm in a way that helps me realize all he has done for us, and ways I can return the love. I must always be grateful

The Allegory of Life
William Golding’s Lord of the Flies repeatedly contrasts with the morality-driven views of the controversial philosopher Frederick Nietzsche. Golding’s allegorical novel tells the story of a group of young boys who remain stranded on an island and left to their own instincts. Golding and Nietzsche would argue the issues the boys face are based on the morality and nature of man. Ralph, the protagonist, is delegated power by the other boys…
in the 1800's denied the existence of Ur of the Chaldes. The bible states that Ur, the city of Chaldes was part of Babylonia. For the Lord said in Deut. 4:2, "Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish brought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the Lord your God which I command you." In Rev 22:19 it also states, "And Lord if any man shall take away form the words of the book of his prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out…

Christ asked the blind man, “My son, can you see?”
The blind man exalted “Yes, my holy father, praise the lord, I am healed, I can see!”
And so Jesus took the man from the crowd and whispered unto him, “But can you see the

When the blind man did not respond, Jesus exclaimed “then you are still blind!” and Jesus

are almost out of money, buy a meal for a homeless man. Every fiber of your being will scream at you to be selfish and hoard your time and money, but that is when you will find giving the most beneficial. That is when you will learn to rely on the Lord. (Trust me, it's a lot better to have him running your life than yourself. He's a lot bigger, a lot smarter, and a lot richer than you.) When you live in the practice of blessing others, God will bless you. As a man sows so shall he reap.
17But, beloved, remember ye the words which were spoken before of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ;
18How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts.
19These be they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the Spirit.
20But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost,

temptation. The Lord created Adam and Eve and he instructed that he may eat from any tree in the garden except from the tree of knowledge; which creates temptation. “But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it” (Genesis 2:17). It is said that evil came to Eve in the form of a serpent to convince her to eat from the tree of knowledge and persuade Adam to do the same. “For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods…
