Sue Stottmeister was jogging through a park in
Rockville, Maryland two weeks ago as she always did
before picking up her children from school. But on
this day she would not complete her run. Instead, the
Sunday school teacher was attacked and brutally beaten.

When police found her, she had been lying in the snow
for five hours. She died on the way to the hospital,
leaving a grieving family and a shaken community.

Whenever something like this happens, people often
wonder: Why does God allow evil to exist if he's able
to stop it? It's a question that has caused many to
doubt God's existence -- or his goodness, or his
power. The problem of evil bothered journalist Lee
Strobel so much that he researched and wrote a book
to answer this and other hard questions about God.

Strobel was an atheist when he decided to examine the
historical evidence for and against the existence of
God. His journey led to his conversion and a vibrant
faith in Christ. But Lee still struggled with
questions that seemed to have no logical answer --
such as why a loving God would allow someone to
murder a devoted Christian mother like Sue Stottmeister.

For the answer to the question of evil, Lee
interviewed Christian philosopher Peter Kreeft of
Boston College. Kreeft gave Strobel the traditional
teaching regarding why evil is abroad in the world.
Humans cannot enjoy both free will and a world free
from sin. "Once God chose to create human beings with
free will," Kreeft said, "it was up to them . . . as
to whether there was sin or not." God created "the
possibility of evil, but it was humans who actualized
that potentiality."

Kreeft then offered Strobel a second explanation for
the reality of evil. He suggested that God might
tolerate certain short-range evils in order to
achieve long-range goods that humans cannot foresee.

Imagine, he said, a bear in a trap, and a hunter who
wants to liberate him. The hunter tries and fails to
win the bear's confidence, so he has no choice but to
shoot the bear full of tranquilizers. The terrified
bear thinks the hunter is trying to kill him. He
doesn't understand that the hunter is acting out of compassion.

"I believe," Kreeft said, "God does the same thing to
us sometimes, and we can't comprehend why he does it
any more than the bear can understand the motivations
of the hunter." We simply have to trust God.

Finally, Kreeft concludes, people don't get away with
evil acts, even though they may seem to. God will one
day settle the accounts; evildoers will be punished
for the suffering they've caused.

In the meantime, we must remember that God weeps with
those who weep -- that his own son was acquainted
with sorrows and grief. And he will help us to bear
the agony of the world's evil.

I hope you'll read Lee Strobel's book, The Case for
Faith. It will help you understand how God can meet
our needs even in the midst of great suffering.

As Corrie ten Boom wrote of her time in a Nazi
concentration camp, "No matter how deep our darkness,
[God] is deeper still."

A Few Thoughts On Marriage

You know what I did before I married?
Anything I wanted to. -- Henny Youngman

Keep your eyes wide open before marriage, half shut afterwards.
--Benjamin Franklin

My wife and I were happy for twenty years. Then we met.
-- Rodney Dangerfield

A good wife always forgives her husband when she's wrong.
-- Milton Berle

I was married by a judge. I should have asked for a jury.
-- George Burns

When women are depressed, they either eat or go shopping.
Men invade another country. It's a whole different way of thinking.
-- Elaine Boosler

Never go to bed mad. Stay up and fight.-- Phyllis Diller


A UNC grad spent all day making his funny money. At the
end of the day he realizes he spent all his time making $15 bills.

He figures that the only way he's going to get anything from this
batch of money, is to find a place where the people aren't too
bright and change his phony money for real cash.

He travels to a small town in the backwoods and walks into a
small Mom and Pop grocery store. He goes to the old man
behind the counter and asks him, "Do you have change for a $15 bill?"

The old man replies, "I sure do. How would you like that?
An 8 and a 7 or two 6s and a three?"

Our subtle senses of color and taste are the result of various
combinations of a small number of "primary" senses. There are the
sweet, sour, bitter, salty, and umami of taste, and the red, green,
and blue of color. Are there "primary smells" too?

The sense of smell is far more complex than taste, but it too has
primary senses. There are a lot more of them: several hundred,
according to recent studies. Smell receptor cells come in many
varieties, each of which responds to a small group of similar molecules.

When you smell the complex aroma of baking cookies or the subtle tang
of seaweed decaying on the beach, your brain is recognizing a very
complicated message composed of hundreds of distinct signals. Change
just a few of those signals by a tiny amount, and you might realize
that the cookies are beginning to burn. See info about the nose's Creator:
PS 139:14.

How smell works:

A school project on smell (for teachers and students):


One of the reasons for the success of the internet is its open,
peer-to-peer nature. All computers on the internet are equal,
and in the past it hasn't mattered whether your computer is
a 386 in Nguru on the end of a satellite phone or a big monster
in a New York rack. If that ever changes, I think we will lose
part of the essential, vital character of the internet. Doug Winter

yet forfeit his very soul? --Mark 8

Verse of the Day

* * * Four Important Things To KNOW: #1) For ALL (Americans, Muslims, Jews, Catholics, Hindus, Buddhist, Asians, Presbyterians, Europeans, Baptist, Brazilians, Mormons, Methodist, French, etc.) have sinned & fall short of the glory of God. #2) For the wages of above (see #1) are DEATH (Hell, eternal separation from God, & damnation) but the Gift (free & at no charge to you) of God (Creator, Jehovah, & Trinity) is Eternal Life (Heaven) through (in union with) Jesus Christ (God, Lord, 2nd Person of The Trinity, Messiah, Prince of Peace & Savior of the World). #3) For God so greatly loved & dearly prized the world (Americans, Muslims, Jews, Catholics, Hindus, Buddhist, Asians, Presbyterians, Europeans, Baptist, Brazilians, Mormons, Methodist, French, etc.) that He even gave up His only begotten (unique) Son, that whosoever (anyone, anywhere, anytime - while still living) believes (trust in, relies on, clings to, depends completely on) Him shall have eternal (everlasting) life (heaven). #4) Jesus said: "I am THE WAY, THE TRUTH, & THE LIFE. No one (male/female - American, Muslim, Jew, Catholic, Hindu, Buddhist, Asian, Presbyterian, European, Baptist, Brazilian, Mormons, Methodist, French, etc. ) comes (arrives) to the Father (with GOD in Heaven) EXCEPT BY (through) ME (no other name). *** This wonderful loving GOD gives you the choice - - - (Rev. 3:20) {Please note that church membership, baptism, doing good things, etc. are not requirements for becoming a Christian - however they are great afterwards!!!} *** Jesus said, "Wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction (Hell, damnation, eternal punishment), and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life (Heaven, eternal happiness, forever with God), and only a few find it.

But these are written so that you may
believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the
Son of God, and that by believing in
Him you will have life. Jn 20:31

Seek the Lord while He may be found;
call on Him while He is near. Let the
wicked forsake his way and the evil
man his thoughts. Let him turn to the
Lord, and He will have mercy on him,
and to our God, for He will freely
pardon. "For My thoughts are not
your thoughts, neither are your ways
My ways," declares the Lord. "As the
heavens are higher than the earth, so
are My ways higher than your ways
and My thoughts than your thoughts.
As the rain and the snow come down
from heaven, and do not return to it
without watering the earth and making
it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed
for the sower and bread for the eater,
so is My word that goes out from My
mouth: It will not return to Me empty,
but will accomplish what I desire and
achieve the purpose for which I sent it.
You will go out in joy and be led forth
in peace; the mountains and hills will
burst into song before you, and all the
trees of the field will clap their hands.
Instead of the thornbush will grow the
pine tree, and instead of briers the myrtle
will grow. This will be for the Lord's
renown, for an everlasting sign, which
will not be destroyed." Is 55

O Lord, you have searched me and you
know me. You know when I sit and when
I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar.
You discern my going out and my lying
down; you are familiar with all my ways.
Before a word is on my tongue you know
it completely, O Lord. You hem me in -
behind and before; you have laid your
hand upon me. Such knowledge is too
wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain.

Where can I go from your Spirit? Where
can I flee from your presence? If I go up
to the heavens, you are there; if I make
my bed in the depths, you are there.

If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
if I settle on the far side of the sea,
even there your hand will guide me,
your right hand will hold me fast.

If I say, "Surely the darkness will hide
me and the light become night around
me," even the darkness will not be dark
to you; the night will shine like the day,
for darkness is as light to you. For you
created my inmost being; you knit me
together in my mother's womb. I praise
you because I am fearfully and wonderfully
made; your works are wonderful, I know
that full well. My frame was not hidden
from you when I was made in the secret
place. When I was woven together in the
depths of the earth, your eyes saw my
unformed body. All the days ordained
for me were written in your book before
one of them came to be.

How precious to me are your thoughts,
O God! How vast is the sum of them!
Were I to count them, they would
outnumber the grains of sand. When
I awake, I am still with you. Search me,
O God, and know my heart; test me
and know my anxious thoughts. See
if there is any offensive way in me,
and lead me in the way everlasting.
Ps 139

But indeed for this purpose I have raised you up,
that I may show My power in you, and that My
Name may be declared in all the earth. Ex 9:16

When I survey the wondrous cross
On which the Prince of Glory died,
My richest gain I count but loss,
And pour contempt on all my pride.

Were the whole realm of nature mine,
That were a present far too small:
Love so amazing, so divine,
Demands my soul, my life, my all.
- - Isaac Watts
