Our forgiving others is absolutely crucial to our physical and spiritual health. We cannot have a healthy relationship with God if we are holding a grudge against another person. It doesn’t matter if we are right and feel that we are justified to be mad at someone. Jesus stated the second most important commandment after loving God is to love others.
“Jesus replied: “ ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.” (Matthew 22:37-40)
“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.” (John 13:34)
There may be a few people in our lives that we love as much as ourselves, but without God’s help, it is impossible to love others as ourselves. As humans, we are very self-centered. For instance, when we look at a picture that we are in, don’t we look at ourselves first? Don’t we judge whether the picture is good or bad by how we look in it?
I’m just making a point here. Loving and forgiving others is not always easy. Sometimes it is impossible without God’s help. It may not be easy, but it is vital to our relationship with Christ.
The scriptures tell us that our forgiveness depends on our forgiving others. Continue reading
Global flood stories have been documented in almost every region of the world. Ancient civilizations such as in (Europe, Africa, the Near East, China and Asia, North, Central and South America, Australia, the Pacific Islands) all have their stories of the great flood. Old world missionaries reported their amazement at finding remote tribes already possessing legends with tremendous similarities to the Bible’s account of the worldwide flood. Altogether there are over 500 Flood legends worldwide.
These flood tales are often linked by common elements with the Biblical account, such as the warning of the coming flood, the construction of a boat, the storage of animals, the inclusion of family, the release of birds to determine if the flood waters had subsided. The overwhelming consistency of these flood legends from distant parts of the world indicates that they were derived from the same original event.
If you consider that nearly every part of the world has their version of the global flood and that most of the earth’s surface, even on the mountain tops are made up of sedimentary bedrock. Obviously, there was a worldwide flood regardless what the evolutionists claim.
This book provides proof of a Biblical worldwide flood and backs it up with geological data. The information in this book offers evidence of creation by an omnipotent God and a global flood as God’s judgment of a sinful world. It provides evidence as to what the earth was like before the flood. It was a world that after creation God had declared very good. Even after the fall of man, it was still paradise compared with the world we know today. The catastrophic effects of a worldwide flood changed this planet drastically.
