 Five Errors to Drop From Your Easter Sermon – If Jesus was born in the fall of 5 or 6 B.C., and if we remember that we don’t count the “0” between B.C. and A.D., then Jesus would have been 37 or 38 years old when he died in the spring of A.D. 33 (as we believe is most likely). – Andreas J.

Heaven Is Real, but Heaven Is for Real Is Really Not – It is more than noteworthy to point out that NDEs are predictably contextualized by the backgrounds and belief systems of those who experience them.

And the Holy Spirit? Well, he is bluish! Who would have thought? – Hank Hanegraaff
