What Your Childhood Memories Say About You
Dr. Kevin Leman
Your childhood memories contribute to who you are today and have to do with what parenting style your parents chose. Birth order also affects who and what we become. Sometimes what you remember may have happened different than what you remember or did not happen at all. The author says, " Life is a party and you are invited". With children what you see is what you get. You can not change your past but you can change how you understand it and move forward from there.
World Religions in a Nutshell
Ray Comfort
There are 14 million Jewish people in the world today with 6 million in U.S. and 5 million in Israel. Judaism is the 6th largest religion in the world. They believe in one God. Orthodox Jews believe in the Torah which is the first 5 books of the Old Testament. They believe in the rest of the Old Testament but especially the first 5 books. There are over 13 million Mormons world wide. They study the Book of Mormon and The Bible but put the Book of Mormon ahead of the bible and have different believes than main stream Christians. Jehovah Witnesses have 6 million members and go knocking on doors to tell people about God and Jesus but have their own special view about the bible and celebrating birthdays, etc. Islam is the worlds second largest religion with 1.5 billion followers. It is the youngest and fastest growing religion. Hinduism is third largest religion. Reincarnation, yoga, and being one with God are taught. It is oldest religion. 375 million people follow Buddhism which promotes non violence and tolerance without any accountability to God. Atheism is not believing in God and this is what some people follow. Christians believe in God and Jesus and the bible and are found throughout the world. Christians are suppose to be Christ like but do fall short of the Glory of God. God is God and people are people.
