The first card was posted way back in 2012, and it has been great following along with Greg as he wrote about every card in the entire set and now the Traded series. Only three more cards to go!)

Studying the Word of God is one of the most rewarding things a person can do in this life, as it prepares one for the next. I generally don’t delve into religious matters on this blog, reserving that for Handling Aright, which contains sermon outlines and studies for Bible classes. However, when thinking of Christmas gift suggestions, what better than some materials related to Bible studies? Below are some of my favorite books in the realm of religion.

Yes, I voted. Not the way I wanted to, but I did it. However, there are more important things in my life right now than who will be residing at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue in January. I’ll check the news later tonight or maybe tomorrow and find out who “won” (but I’ll tell you right now, regardless of the outcome, America lost).
Instead, I’ll be studying the Bible with someone this morning. I have also scheduled my Twitter account to post some Scriptures throughout the day as a reminder that God is the Almighty, and that neither Trump nor Clinton can take that away from Him.
And, I might post a few pictures of baseball cards as time permits. Because baseball cards are awesome.
But there will be no more election talk on my Twitter account today.

A lot of things are happening in our nation. Today, the Supreme Court handed down its ruling on homosexual marriage. I’m not going to get political on this blog, but I will say that this is not really a political issue. It is a spiritual issue.
I would like to direct you to an article on the website, Plain Simple Faith. The article is, What Does The Bible Really Say About Homosexuality? I encourage you to consider the points made by the author, and examine the Scriptures. Realize that whatever decisions the government makes, God is still God.
