I have a few frustrating things that I wish I was clever enough to put into rhyme, so that they would hook into the memory of Christians. This is because remembering these few things could help the cause of the gospel.
Many in this sinful world will tell you that the Scriptures are filled with unscientific statements, mistakes, contradictions, and atrocities. But if you believe them and trash the Bible, you will shred the directions on how to find everlasting life.
Once you truly know the Lord, you will be horrified that millions of human beings just like you and me will end up in Hell if they die in their sins. So, you will live to share your faith—to share the gospel with the dying world that surrounds you.
Judas traveled with Jesus during what are often called the "years of popularity." Judas witnessed the miracles.

Years ago, somebody sent me a video by well-known atheist Penn Jillette. He marveled that anyone could believe the foolish stories in the book of Genesis.
I think that many "free thinkers" are rethinking the belief that nothing created everything. It is so thoughtless.
Sexual abuse, like STDs, is one of the negative consequences in a society that has thrown off moral restraint. If anything goes, then there are no real boundaries, and so we have to live with the consequences.
