Thankfully, the hope that God offers is much more than a feeling: it's the reality of His presence with you. Here are some ways you can find it in the midst of any situation.
Two ideas must be present in how we think about suffering: (1) suffering is not original; it has not always existed. (2) suffering is not something created or authored by God.
Given what we know, Judge Walker’s dismissal of concerns about the impact of being raised in a same sex household was more akin to a statement of faith than a finding of fact. Denying what we know and claiming to know what we can’t know—now that is irrational.

According to "liberal estimates," the number of Maldivian Christians or seekers "cannot be more than 15," said one source. "Even if you engage any Maldivian in a discussion on Christianity and the person reports it to authorities, you can be in trouble," the source said.
You want to shock the world? Start here--demonstrating the guts to do what's right when no one is looking.
