As the most beautiful angel in the heavens, I have it made. I am beautiful, powerful, and I even managed to rebel against the Almighty Himself, taking a third of His forces with me. It was a simple matter to further mess up God’s plan by causing the two humans made in His image to doubt God’s words to them and do what He told them not to do.
Then there was the time I caused all those people to be so wicked that God had to destroy the entire earth except for eight people. When you have legions of demons and only eight supposedly righteous people, it is much easier to get them to disobey His Majesty, the God of the universe because there are thousands of you and only eight of them. After the flood and after another rebellion, He confused their language, but that was no big deal. I just corrupted the stories they told about God’s so-called deliverance of them.
When the Israelites finally got what they wanted and were allowed to have Kings, it was so easy to corrupt the rulers. Humans are such despicable creatures. A beautiful woman is all it takes to turn a king into mush and make him want another wife. “Forget the law against marrying a foreign woman! I want her and she would help with a peace treaty with the country she comes from.” Ha! So much for that plan, You pathetic excuse for a God!

Foreign women, rebellious people, exiles, all of this was in my plan to so corrupt Abraham and David’s lineage that God would be forced to change His plan. Continue reading →
Today, I have the honor of introducing Valerie Howard today as a guest blogger. I had the honor to proofread her book “Our God Saves” earlier this year. If you still need a present for that book lover of yours, this book would be a wonderful addition to their bookshelf. “Our God Saves” is a book of uplifting testimonies from people of all different backgrounds.

This is a letter to the editor I wrote after Osama bin Laden was found and killed. It was published in our local paper in May 2011. After reading through it again, I realized that it is still very relevant to today.
Many may now sleep better because of the announcement of Osama bin Laden’s death and burial. However, I feel burdened to say that no matter how awful the person was, we should not applaud or rejoice over their death. Especially if they die without having known Christ as their personal Savior. Continue reading →
