Forty Days of Mourning

On this, my fortieth day of mourning my beloved, I remove the ring she put on my finger. I cried through putting her ring on, even as I cry in taking mine off.

R.C. Sproul Jr. lets us take a look into the past 40 days after the death of his wife.  This is definitely worth the time to read.

Wise words from a 19th century giant, J.C. Ryle.  This short article gives us a great test to determine if our faith is real.

The Clap Offering

Almost 4 years ago, I penned this article.  I continue to see this fallacy when people argue.
