  by  Mike_fleming  The Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.” Genesis 2:18 (NLT) The Bible tells us that it was not good for the man to be alone, but it does not tell us why in this chapter. In this account of creation in Genesis 2, God created the heavens and the earth and all the animals. He created the man and brought all the creatures to the man to give than a name. God decided to make a “help meet” for him and then goes on Continue reading

Sorry my dear by Erix!

  by  erix!  The story of the Prodigal Son is one of the first stories I learnt from the Bible. In Chapter 15 of the Gospel according to St. Luke, it tells the story of a younger of two brothers who demanded his portion of the father’s estate – while the father was still alive and then moved to a distant land and there he wasted all the money of wild living! After spending all his fortune, the economic situation of the land he was in changed and he went to work in a field feeding pigs. He became so hungry that even the Continue reading
