Last Sunday one of my all-time favorite people died. Alice Herz-Sommer was 110 years old.

Alice survived the horrors of the Nazi concentration camp at Terezin. Even though her husband and many family and friends died there, she came away physically and emotionally unharmed. It’s pretty hard to believe, but Alice bore no hatred or resentment toward Nazi Germany.

She loved music and it’s part of the reason she walked away from Terezin virtually unscathed.Read more

I’m going to be travelling over the next few weeks. So this post is a brief one.

About a year and a half ago we wrote a post about Mack Wolford, a Pentecostal minister in West Virginia. Pastor Wolford believed Christians should handle poisonous snakes as a test of their faith. And if they were bitten, as he was several times, their faith should save them from death.

In his last service, the day after his 44th birthday, Pastor Wolford was bitten by a timber rattlesnake, refused medical treatment, and died a painful death that night.… Read more

I received the following letter from one of our readers. With her permission, I’m including it here. Following her letter is our response.

***************************************************************

Do you believe we are in the times or at least within 30-40 years of the Antichrist? Or do you think that Revelations was made up to put fear in people and so now it’s being followed?
