Anti-God Energy

“One who does not have the Spirit does not necessarily and self-consciously say, “How can I destroy my life today?” He may choose a path that looks good and proper, but it leads to destruction: “There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way to death” (Prov. 14:12). A relentless anti-God energy is at work in the minds of unbelievers, distracting, deceiving, and dragging down every thought into a grave.”-Derek Thomas

In Bondage, Not Control

“Roy Horn was part of the long-running two-man show “Siegfried fried & Roy” in Las Vegas. As part of the show, Horn performed with trained tigers. One day, Horn gave one of his tigers a command. The tiger refused to do it, so the ringmaster tapped him on the nose. Within seconds, the tiger grabbed Horn by the neck and dragged him around the ring. For several weeks afterward, Horn hovered between life and death. This story reflects our relationship to the law: we think we are in control, but we are not. We are in bondage to the law.” -Derek Thomas
