A familiar maxim in the conventional secular wisdom of the age is that the Bible is nothing more than a collection of tales and cannot therefore be trusted as a reliable historical source.
The reality is that for decades archeology has been producing mounds of evidence that supports the Bible as not merely a reliable source but quite possibly the most reliable and comprehensive one for the ancient Middle East.
The latest illustration of this fact is found in “Biblical Archeologies Top 10 Discoveries in 2018,” written by ARTIFAX magazine editor Gordon Covier for Christianity Today.

Not sure of the answer to the question of what are you living your life for? Check your bank account and time sheets. Whatever you think you live for, the truth is your heart is wherever your money and your time are.
If you work on the Hill, maybe it’s status or recognition of some kind. Or becoming influential, an “insider.” Could be having a certain title linked to your name. Or perhaps having as much fun as humanly possible.

It’s a truism that’s often heard among smart people in conversations on Capitol Hill and elsewhere and it goes something like this: “The human mind thinks and processes just like a computer.”
Sounds reasonable, doesn’t it? After all, minds, or our brains, and computers use logic to process information – “inputs” – and then produce “outputs,” typically in words or numbers.
But here’s something to think about: If the human mind “thinks” like a computer, that’s really odd because, according to The Stream’s senior editor, Tom Gilson, computers don’t in fact think. They can’t think.

There are hundreds of men and women working in Congress who came to town a year ago or maybe a few years ago professing to be followers of the Lord Jesus Christ, but then the realities of life on Capitol Hill hit them square in the face.
Challenges to their faith — intellectual and otherwise — are everywhere on the Hill and doubts can become a huge problem. Some choose to leave their faith behind, others retreat into spiritual ghettos.
