The Bible says in Proverbs 27:17a, that "iron sharpens iron". And in Romans 14:19, "Therefore let us pursue the things which produce peace and the things that build up* one another." (* or edify) This is true of all our relationships as brothers and sisters in Christ, but even much more so as married couples. We are called to seek to build up - or edify - each other.
Today, the television has become a normal daily part of most families' lives, especially in the west. Most people have at least one TV sitting proudly in their living room, while many others have TVs in bedrooms, kitchens and other rooms... When not in school, children can sit in front of the telly for hours on end, spoilt for choice with the huge variety of programs offered to them. For many of them, switching the TV on has become automatic as soon as they get up or when they come back from school each day.
Some say Jesus was a good man or a prophet. Others say He was a lunatic or even a fictional character who never existed. Others still say He was and still is the Son of God.
There is overwhelming evidence for the fact that Jesus of Nazareth really existed (read this), but did He claim He was the Son of God? Did He say He was God?
To the question "Is there a cure for cancer?", the answer according to most people would be something like "Not yet, but research is getting closer to finding a cure every day" or "We hope to finally have a cure available to end cancer within the next five, ten or maybe twenty years..."
This is also what I used to believe... Until very recently. I found out that there isn't one cure out there for cancer, but in fact there are many cures already available today.
For many, water is just a boring, tasteless drink that they would rather exchange for the more sweet and sophisticated drinks out there. But, on average, the human body is made up of about 60% water - and over 70% for the brain and heart. This makes water by far the most abundant element of the body.
If water makes up so much of the body, could it be that drinking it is actually good for us? Could a lack of it cause problems?
