Kiriban Award

The white dove is commonly known today as a symbol of peace and purity, but it was also used several times in the Bible. It was the bird Noah sent out of the ark that returned with an olive branch (Genesis 8:6-12), Jonah's name in the original Hebrew means 'dove', Jews who could not afford to provide a lamb for sacrifice could instead use two doves (Leviticus 1:14; 14:30; Luke 2:24), and the Holy Spirit Himself descended from heaven during Jesus' baptism in the form of a dove (Matthew 3:16).
Fun fact: doves don't have gallbladders.

Christians and the Zodiac

Thu Jan 21, 2016, 2:24 PM
In my quest for understanding God better, I came across this book.  I have read things about ancient people using signs in the sky.   For example,  the wisemen who came looking for Jesus when He was born because they "read" the symbols in the sky.  Because current cultures and religions have used the zodiac for other things, many Christians view it as an evil thing. However, it is very interesting to look at where it originated from, how ancient Jews used it, and how God uses the sky to tell the story of the Messiah.  The book is called The Witness of the Stars by  Ethelbert W. Bullinger.

This review was posted by someone on amazon.com and I thought it summed up the book very well.  Because I can't put it any better myself, here is what they said:
E.W. Bullinger spells out the meaning of the stars and the zodiac, in their spiritual, uncorrupted state. In our day in age, the astrology is thought of as something for mystics, and generally viewed as satanic by Christians. But did you know that the fathers of astrology were the Bible Patriarchs themselves! God has used the stars as his "storybook in the sky" to reveal His plan of redemption for mankind. In The Witness of the Stars, Bullinger fascinates readers showing them how "the Heavens reveal the glory of the Lord." Just as the ancients taught their sons God's plans through the study of the stars, so you too can experience God's Word through the Heaven's manifestation.


If this sounds interesting to you, find a copy of the book.  Read it.  And share what you think. :D

A Letter From the People of the Cross




Vision: We want to tell the world of the great and mighty things of the Lord through media



As the world responds to the Islamic State with hatred and vengeance, there is one group that is responding differently. They are not allies with ISIS but their enemies. And they have been slain by the thousands in the hands of ISIS. ISIS calls them The Nation of the Cross - The ones they have killed are bringing a message of forgiveness and hope. Declaring a love that they do not know - A love that reconciles even the worst of us and can make enemies into brothers.

We worked with several Arab Christians and Middle East Refugees to get their feedback. Also had it translated by an Arab Christian from Egypt.

I'm passionate about art. More than that, I'm passionate about a relationship with Jesus Christ. Here is a list of resources and links that have helped me in my Christian life. Originally I created this as a quick reference list for my own use, then I thought that others might find it useful too. :aww:
