Special for Easter

I highly recommend the poem, "A Cowboy's Easter", which you can find here . Also, if you find yourself with some time to spare and feel like examining evidences for the resurrection of Jesus from the dead, you can find that here . By the way, my father died 14 months ago.

What's So Good About It?

I want to say at the outset that this article will annoy many people because it contains the most inconvenient truths. People won't have the nerve to finish reading it, I'll wager.

But what was going to be a simple thing suddenly became more complex as I thought further. Not only is this April Fool's Day, it is also called Holy Thursday; we're in the final days before Easter. You see, a "fool" in Biblical usage is not just someone being, well, stupid. Sure, a fool says that there is no God, but it's more than that. A fool is also lacking in moral fiber. The rest of this verse reads, "... They are corrupt, their deeds are vile; there is no one who does good." Long ago, I learned from a Creationist, "If there's no Creator, you can do what you please. But if there is a Creator, he makes the rules and we'd better find out what he has to say." And I put that to the arrogant
