Lego Offers Free Way to Give Toys!

Cashless Christians Can Give Lego Love Too!

Lego announced that it is giving gifts of Lego kits all over the world to children in need through a variety of organizations when you make a Lego star, take a picture of it, post it to social media and tag it #BuildToGive.
If you have access to a Lego brick set, a camera, and WiFi you too can take part in helping children around the world receive free Lego sets. 
Yes, sadly, we are at that dreaded season of greed.
While I am grateful that Lego is asking people to make something from the story of Christ's birth to spread Lego love around the earth;

Debating Hebraic Scriptures? First Seek Translation Guidance!

How Mistranslations Mislead Christian Biblical Scholars

Many Christians read scriptural translations and are very mislead by what they read because the translation is not accurate. One of the greatest debates in current Christian discourse is whether Satan is being described in the following passage found in Chapter 28 of the book of Ezekiel. 
Scripture:
Ezekiel 28:11-19

I was very surprised to hear there was any debate when the passage clearly states God is telling Ezekiel to make a prophecy over the King of Tyre!  I am quite sure that if God wanted to tell Ezekiel that he should tell Satan something, he wouldn't confuse Satan with the King of Tyre. God is after all omniscient - not concussed like me.

Peace is through Jesus

Peace is through Jesus

 

Many people all over the world desire to live in peace. It is a desire that is not impossible to achieve.

In my opinion, peace is only possible through Jesus. Jesus gave us the peace to treasure it in our lives and to live it with others.

The peace which Jesus gave us was through the love of the Father. This is the same peace we are to share with our neighbours.  

It is this peace from Jesus that will heal the wounds in families, in relationships, between countries and wherever there is disunity.

The peace through Jesus is for all to experience.

 

 

God Bless you and take care,

George Calleja (Christian Author).
