Nothing but a wordNothing but a wordThat's how it all beganThe word became fleshWhen His dream became ManThought of before conceptionChosen before birthPlanned out before existenceHis vessels on this earthHe could have done it allFor in His eyes, all was doneBut He made us partakers of His pleasureIn every victory wonCreated like seedsTrue forms locked withinRevealed through work over timeAnd a partnership with Him
The JourneyI travelled down hot asphalt roadsAmused by sights I did not see:Fragrant flowers and chirping birdsCheerful laughter chiming with glee.In many contraptions were people trapped;In varying cages were they kept:Enclosed, imprisoned, jailed - un-free;Helmed in by thoughts, worries, and anxiety;Anguished by life's uncertainty;Prisoners of mind, of purse, of geography;Confined behind locks without a key.And yet escape could still be found;From fetters and chains was I unbound -Raised up and lifted from death's moundBy Hope and Love of great renown.Enriched by blessings I did not deserveWith an abundance of love without reserve;A drop of heaven on this parched Earth;An immaculate gift of infinite worth:Love, Joy, and Peace,Kindness, and Faith,Patience and Goodness,Long-suffering, and Grace,With bright countenanceAnd cheerful faceCame my hero - my savior -The one true LordWhom all with renewed hearts adored.
Why He died (Easter 2012)On Good FridayOur Lord Jesus diedSo that Man couldBe justifiedAnd have our sinsAll washed awayBy His bloodAnd Holy name.For all our wrongsA price was paidSo we'd be forgivenAnd be righteous made.For though we had hurt HimHis forgiveness He ne'er delayed;He gave up His right of offenseAnd looked to the Father insteadTo pour unto us Grace,Love, & Mercy trueSo that we could be like HimAnd forgive others too.On Easter morningHe rose againSo that we could have Hope(If hope should wane)During the times thingsFelt worse than deathWe'd look to His resurrectionAnd God's life-giving breath.

You can find them also in my "How I Know God Exists" journal, but I thought I'd spread them to the public more. Hopefully both atheists and Christians will read these and learn more.--Note that I try to keep these concise and to the point. I could probably write a small book on each individual one, haha. But for space and time's sake, I won't. That's why I've also supplied plenty of links for you to learn more. If you think I don't fully answer something, read the links I give you. If you have more questions concerning something, read the links I give you. Anyone who comes to me asking about something that the links could have answered will be ignored.1. Why would God allow evil? Two words: free will.We have free will to commit evil, and free will to choose not to.Evil is the absence of God. The same way cold is the absence of heat, and darkness is the abs

10 Facts That Disprove Evolution1. We share half our DNA with bananas.2. The fossil record has holes in it. Dinosaur and humans footprints were found side-by-side in Arizona and Turkmenistan. In Uzbekistan, 86 consecutive hoof prints of horses were found in rocks dating back to the dinosaurs. Petrified trees in Arizona's petrified forest have fossilized nests of bees and cocoons of wasps. Those forests are reputedly 220 million years old, while bees (and flowering plants which bees require) supposedly evolved almost 100 million years later.3. No macro variations (speciation) in evolution have ever been observed. Micro evolution is species adaptations, and it's not the same as macro. Adjusting to the climate is very, very different than changing from species to another.4. Humans have the most neurons in their brains but primates don't have even close to that amount. They aren't even in the top ten.5. Radiometric dating does not take into account the way heat and water affect the aging of bones (it makes them appea
