In fact, there comes a time in SEAL training that even the Coronado gods cannot do anything to force a BUDS trainee to quit! I’ve seen it! He will die first. Want to learn how to become fearless as a Navy SEAL? You can be and exceedingly more! Take off the ropes! Be resolved by enthusiastically diving into His Word, find a church, commit to heartfelt prayer and living a life that boldly imitates God…
…That’s true resolve worth living for!
Now, some people would argue that finding a good church is more like finding a
spouse. I disagree. God designed marriage to be forever, but I think our church
families evolve and change. In fact, fewer and fewer people continue in the same

The God of the Bible has a lot to say about moral absolutes, about standards of behavior, about the nature of man, and yes, He even defines “sin.” Regardless of the truths for and against His existence, the fact that there is a Bible that provides a blueprint for life – for living – for those that believe its words, establishes for those believers very clear standards for how they should live their lives.

The seeker-sensitive movement claims millions of conversions, commands vast resources, continues to gain popularity, and seems to be attracting millions of unchurched people into its fold.”
Surviving BUDS is not for the faint at heart. BUDS training challenges its candidates with unmerciful physical pain, along with a no-holds-barred mental workover. Most people are somewhat familiar with this protocol.

Recognized as one of the most critical aspects of the philosophical question known as “the problem of evil”, responses to this question from Christians have been both incredibly diverse and strenuously adamant.

All this Kim Davis stuff is infuriating. I liked Rubio, but as soon as he applauded Davis in the debate he lost all my consideration. If everyone decided to break the law because their religion, there would be anarchy. And speaking of persecution, is Davis not using her power to persecute gays?
