The Valley of Vision

The Valley of Vision 

Lord, high and holy, meek
and lowly, Thou hast brought me to the valley of vision,
where I live in the depths but see Thee in the heights; hemmed in by
mountains of sin I behold Thy glory. Let me learn by paradox
that the way down is the way up, that to be low is to be high, that the 
broken heart is the healed heart, that the

17 Countries Where Christians are Persecuted

I've edited this based on information from The Bible League, Operation World and other sources. It's intended to help us pray more intelligently for our brothers and sisters.

27 Common Questions About Heaven

All these questions are addressed in Randy Alcorn's book Heaven (Tyndale, 2004). Most of them have clear, though not comprehensive, biblical answers. The others that don't have clear answers can be intelligently speculated upon, based on what Scripture does tell us.

American History vs. the ACLU

On Thursday May 7, 1992, I joined about 500 other citizens and taxpayers to pray on the lawn at City Hall in the city of Gresham, Oregon. It was the national day of prayer, declared so by our president. Organizers had gone through the right hoops, and the mayor of Gresham had granted permission for us to be there. But the gathering began not with a prayer or song of worship, but a statement read by a police lieutenant culminating in, "You are commanded to leave." What a way to start a prayer meeting!

Why don’t we pray to Mary and the Saints?

We don’t pray to Mary and the various saints because they are not God, and they have no power to answer prayer.
