The fate of his marriage lies in his soul.

THE WAR WITHIN is a unique fantasy that takes viewers to a world that only God can see; the world of the inner man. Michael Sinclair (Brett Varvel) is a syndicated cartoonist whose dream of a perfect life is upended when tragic events transform his dream into a nightmare. The result is a war that wages within his soul which is personified by six members; Mind, Memory, Emotion, Will, Conscience, and Heart. The ensuing battle for control adversely effects his relationship with his wife Amy (Rebecca Reid) and causes Michael to doubt his faith in God. But in the midst of this spiritual test, Michael discovers that victory is found in surrender. As viewers follow the quest for answers inside of Michael, they may discover their own war within. (92 min)

By Melissa Riddle Chalos

It flies high in the night sky, tears through the darkness, our hope and our life...It breaks through the stronghold, to silence the liar, our hope and our life...We raise our banner...God our banner...

Most of us, if we’re honest, look back to the days of our youth—those junior high, high school and college years—and remember the confusion, insecurity and lack of identity inherent in those desperate years. We didn’t know who we were, where or what we came from or where we were going. Whether raised in godly or godless homes, students by nature are seeking... self-worth, the secret to success in this life, something or someone to identify with.

This ceramic brick is inscribed in cuneiform with the name of Nebuchadnezzar II, who is mentioned some 90 times in the Bible (e.g. Ezra 1:7). Ancient kings often used inscribed bricks in their building projects. This one was originally made in c. 604-562 BC and was found in the ruins of ancient Babylon during excavations in 1927. It reads, "Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon, Guardian of the temples of Esagila and Ezida, Firstborn son of Nabopolasser, king of Babylon.

If you are one of those people who believe the destination is not important, then you will probably swallow Journey right up. You could get a mouthful of sand when you realize you reached the wrong destination at the end of life. Remember Family Friendly Gaming is trying to point you toward the right destination.

"'Bad design’ is evidence for evolution."

Arguments Evolutionists should not make!

The argument goes like this: ‘This trait is imperfect, so it was not created by God, therefore it must have evolved’. This is an example of the fallacy of false alternatives. If bad design could be substantiated it would only be evidence of bad design, not that ‘evolution’ could design the trait. The argument is really a theological argument (again) where the evolutionist presumes to know what sort of design would be consistent with God creating it. Evolutionists have commonly argued that the vertebrate eye is badly designed because the nerve fibres are in front of the light receptors, supposedly interfering with the light (they don’t, due to the elegant fibre optic system). Richard Dawkins has been using this argument for decades. However, Dawkins did not demonstrate that the vertebrate eye is deficient in quality of vision (eagles have the vertebrate eye design!) and his argument is seriously flawed: New eye discovery further demolishes Dawkins.

Reviewed by Paul for FamilyFriendlyGaming

SCORE: 68/100

Soon Shine has one of the most clever names for a product I have seen in some time. Two thoughts hit me when I heard about this game. The first was a song from Bullfrogs and Butterflies about how we worship a different kind of Son. As in the Son of God - Jesus Christ. The other was how close this sounds to moon shine.

Always on the cutting edge of musical style and pushing their own musical boundaries, the new album "Love" is exactly what you would expect, which in this case is the unexpected!

From their inception, Selah has always been synonymous with hymns. In fact, the understated beauty of the trio’s 1999 debut, Be Still My Soul (Curb), helped initiate a hymn revival in Christian music that is still thriving today. Their discography has significantly re-popularized the church’s greatest songs while decorating the popular group with numerous Dove Awards, number one singles, sold out concert tours and over two and half million albums sold.

For ten year-old Jeremiah Prins, the life of privilege as the son of a school headmaster in the Dutch East Indies comes crashing to a halt in 1942 after the Japanese Imperialist invasion of the Southeast Pacific. Jeremiah takes on the responsibility of caring for his younger siblings when his father and older stepbrothers are separated from the rest of the family, and he is surprised by what life in the camp reveals about a woman he barely knows—his frail, troubled mother.

Finding red orbs allow players to go deeper into the soup. Blue orbs allow us to go back up a level. Taking a hit from a larger creature also moves us back up a level.
