“180” Van pics

(Email from Nate Steuer) “Attached are pics of the "180 Bus". The letters are 16" tall and can be seen clearly from over 500 feet away. The QR code is 12 X 12 so it can be scanned from over 12 feet away. Praise God! The first day we were driving it we were at the gas station and a guy a few pumps over scanned the QR code with his phone and started watching it while he pumped gas. Praise God! We now make every day a "180 day"! Glory to God!”

A new episode of WOTM, Season 4 debuts tonight on TBN!

Zurich, Switzerland, is perhaps one of the last places on earth that you would expect to confront a group of chanting Hare Krishnas. But the team does, and you will be dumbfounded at what they believe they must do to find everlasting life. Among other things, you will learn why it’s okay to eat meat, discover why they have ponytails, and see the horrific end-result of a morally relativistic worldview. Watch as a team member uses a chart to teach a Swiss crowd about the amazing human genome. You will enjoy seeing colorful people, as they say astonishing things and hear the biblical gospel.

Evidence Bible

“It is a common temptation of Satan to make us give up the reading of the Word and prayer when our enjoyment is gone; as if it were of no use to read the Scriptures when we do not enjoy them, and as if it were no use to pray when we have no spirit of prayer. The truth is that in order to enjoy the Word, we ought to continue to read it, and the way to obtain a spirit of prayer is to continue praying. The less we read the Word of God, the less we desire to read it, and the less we pray, the less we desire to pray.” George Mueller

What Hollywood Believes – Richard Gere

Richard Gere stated in an interview, “I was always interested in moral and metaphysical questions: What are the underpinnings of reality? The mind? Where is the soul?” Asked what first attracted him to Buddhism, Gere replied, “The willingness of Buddhism to really attack even the concept of a self: Is there a self?”

Richard said of his spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama, whom he refers to as “His Holiness”: “We see him as a spiritual teacher, we see him as a deity.” Richard explains how he has been transformed by the teachings of Buddhism: “There is a lot of work on the mind and intellectual play and exploration of reality itself, using language and pure logic, along with various techniques of meditation. It’s a gradual process as the mind is familiarized with another way of seeing things and, hopefully, the correct way. So it is a process that takes several lifetimes, but if within a lifetime one can see gradual change . . .”
