Creationist Ken Ham Says Aliens Will Go To Hell So Let’s Stop Looking For Them – “You see, the Bible makes it clear that Adam’s sin affected the whole universe,” Ham wrote on his blog on Sunday. “This means that any aliens would also be affected by Adam’s sin, but because they are not Adam’s descendants, they can’t have salvation.”

Get a Skill Before Going to Seminary! – Paul and his associates didn’t labor night and day with only preaching the gospel. They also worked a job so that they would not be “chargeable” to any of the Thessalonians for their preaching of the gospel. I understand that a laborer is worthy of his wages, and that those who labor in the gospel should live off of the ministry of the gospel, but that’s not always going to be a viable option for everyone. – Will Dudding

We Expect Payments – For example, even a mother’s love can be poisoned with self-interest expectations for a return on her investment. Mothers sometimes love to indebt their children for the unconscious repayments they get in return: the daily phone calls, the shopping buddy, attention, or a void-filling never cared for by their husbands. And so they continue to heap on their children smothering love which is really only greater debt. This funds their guilt-tripping for years. But we are all like this to some degree. We don’t mind investing in others as long as we get some return on the investment. – Bob Bixby
