DIVINE PROVIDENCE - A RESPONSE

DIVINE PROVIDENCE
Recently I came across this blasphemous article and felt the need to respond to it. So many unbelievers say ugly things about the Lord without ever having known Him. The fact that the sun rises and shines on the wicked as well as the just should give them pause to consider their words against the God who created them.

There are several points that will be considered and explained here:

Divine Providence 
The Sovereignty of God
The law of reaping and sowing

Now the Lord knew that though Judah promised to give Shelah to Tamar, to raise up seed to her deceased husband, that Judah would not make good on his promise.  

Judah had already lost two sons, both of whom were married to Tamar. Only the youngest was left alive, and Judah did not want Shelah to die as Er and Onan before him did. Considering that Judah took to wife a “Canaanitish” woman from among the heathen, he must have felt that Shelah would follow in his brother’s footsteps. Genesis 38:12 says that when Judah’s wife …

UPDATED JANUARY 1, 2019: BOOKS

The other day I was at the library reading my bible when I began to ponder a scripture. I then looked around at all of the books in the library - most of them useless literature. In fact, all of them are useless literature.

They cannot tell a man how to live a holy life or how to have a relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ. They cannot teach him the bible, for he must have the Holy Spirit of the Lord or he cannot know the things of God (1 Corinthians 2:14-16).

WHY SUGAR IS TOXIC TO THE BODY
In 1957, Dr William Coda Martin tried to answer the question: When is a food a food and when is it a poison? His working definition of "poison" was: "Medically: Any substance applied to the body, ingested or developed within the body, which causes or may cause disease. Physically: Any substance which inhibits the activity of a catalyst which is a minor substance, chemical or enzyme that activates a reaction."1. The dictionary gives an
even broader definition for "pois…
