"Believers who aim to defend their faith make a very serious mistake when they imagine that something like "reason" should displace Jesus Christ as the ultimate authority (Lord) in their thinking and argumentation... reason can be thought of as an ultimate and independent authority or standard by which man judges all claims to truth, even God's. In this sense, reason is a law unto itself, as though man's mind was completely self-sufficient with no need of divine revelation." Dr. Greg L. Bahnsen
The law of the Lord is perfect, reviving the soul; the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple; the precepts of
the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart;
the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes; the fear of the Lord is clean, enduring forever; the rules of the Lord are true, and righteous altogether.
When Sam Harris wrote his book Letter to a Christian Nation, stating that Christians display "murderous intolerance," Dr. Ravi Zacharias felt called to answer. The End of Reason is a clear and powerful response to the "utter bankruptcy" of Harris's New Atheism as it explains the true nature of God, the foundation for evil in the world, and the basis of true morality. Far from an academic treatise, it is a book that you can readily share with your friends and family. It is a book that is written to empower Christians in their daily lives as they encounter daily struggles and challenges.
Secularism has swept through the land, removing the moral compass from culture and replacing it with narcissism.
People are directionless, guilt-ridden, and hopeless. It's time for Christians to stand up and give answers from a biblical worldview.
Right Thinking in a World Gone Wrong provides biblical answers to cultural issues of our day. Whether you're talking about video games, the Internet, environmentalism, illegal immigration, the problem of evil, it's all here. Written by John MacArthur and the pastoral team at Grace Community Church, it will help you navigate through the issues and give you answers for an unbelieving world.

"The world lives in a time of crisis. Christians alone are in a position to rescue the perishing. We dare not settle down and try to live as if things were normal."
"If by excessive labor, we die before reaching the average age of man, worn out in the Master's service, then glory be to God, we shall have so much less of earth and so much more of Heaven!"
For this is what the LORD says, He who Created the Heavens, He is God; He who Fashioned and Made the Earth, He Founded it; He did not Create it to be empty, but Formed it to be Inhabited. I am the Lord, and there is no other. Isaiah 45:18

. "the gospel... of first importance"
1 Corinthians 15:1,3
If there is anything in life that we should be passionate about, it is the gospel. And I don't mean passionate only about sharing it with others. I mean passionate about thinking about it, dwelling on it, rejoicing in it, allowing it to color the way we look at the world.
Only one thing can be of first importance to each of us, and only the Gospel ought to be. —C.J. Mahaney, The C

We Have Approximately 27,000 Biblical Manuscripts
There are approxinately 6,000 Greek manuscripts, 10,000 Latin manuscripts, 11,000 other manuscript copies of the New Testament extant today. The combination of early dating and number of New Testament copies causes historical experts such as Sir Frederic Kenyon (former director and principal librarian of the British Museum) to say, "The interval, then, between the dates of original composition and the earliest extant evidence becomes so small as to be in fact negligible, and the last foundation for any doubt that the Scriptures have come down to us substantially as they were written has now been removed. Both the authenticity and the general integrity of the books of the New Testament may be regarded as finally established."
Archaeology Supports/Confirms the Biblical Record
Archaeology has repeatedly confirmed the accuracy of Biblical places, events, and people. Thousands of finds have corroborated the accounts of the Bible, and to date, no archaeological finds have ever disproved a single Biblical event, civilization, or individual. No, not one.
BEGIN YOUR JOURNEY TO PEACE.
We live in a culture that has elevated pride to the status of a virtue. Self-esteem, positive feelings, and personal dignity are what our society encourages people to seek. At the same time, moral responsibility is being replaced by victimism, which teaches people to blame someone else for their personal failures and iniquities. Frankly, the biblical teachings about human depravity, sin, guilt, repentance, and humility are not compatible with any of those ideas.
The church has been far too willing to embrace the fads of worldly opinion—particularly in the area of psychology and self-esteem. Christians often merely echo worldly thinking on the psychology of guilt and the importance of feeling good about oneself. The adverse effect on the life of the church can hardly be underestimated.
Dr. John MacArthur
For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought captive to the obedience of Christ. 2 Corinthians 10:5
There are four major kinds of junk DNA:
introns, internal segments in genes that are removed at the RNA level;
pseudogenes, genes inactivated by an insertion or deletion;
satellite sequences, tandem arrays of short repeats; and
interspersed repeats, which are longer repetitive sequences mostly derived from mobile DNA elements.
