“C. S. hadrepparttar Right Words”

C.S. Lewis (1898-1963) is undoubtedlyrepparttar 122181 most widely read and best known Christian author ofrepparttar 122182 Twentieth Century. Several years ago a movie entitled, Shadowlands, starring Anthony Hopkins was produced aboutrepparttar 122183 life of Lewis. It’s now on video and well worthrepparttar 122184 time for viewing. One thing remarkable about Lewis’ writing ability was his range. He could write books to stumprepparttar 122185 most hardened agnostic, but he could also write children’s books (Chronicles of Narnia) that still circulate inrepparttar 122186 market places.

When I was a young student at Oklahoma Baptist University in Shawnee, OK many years ago, I took a course in Lewis’ theology. It was at that time my taste for Lewis’ material developed. One of my favorite books is Mere Christianity. I want to highlight some lines in his book that are widely read by theology students everywhere. Lewis states: “I am trying here to prevent anyone sayingrepparttar 122187 really foolish thing that people often say about Him: ‘I’m ready to accept Jesus as a great moral teacher, but I don’t accept His claim to be God.’ That isrepparttar 122188 one thing we must not say. A man who is merely a man and saidrepparttar 122189 sort of things Jesus said would not be a great moral teacher. He would either be a lunatic—onrepparttar 122190 level withrepparttar 122191 man who says he is a poached egg—or else he would berepparttar 122192 Devil of Hell. You must make your choice. Either this man was, and is,repparttar 122193 Son of God: or else a madman or something worse. You can shut Him up for a fool, you can spit at Him and kill Him as a demon; or you can fall at His feet and call Him Lord and God. But let us not come with any patronizing nonsense about His being a great human teacher. He has not left that open to us. He did not intend to. (Mere Christianity [New York: Touchstone, 1996] 56.)

While I’m onrepparttar 122194 topic, what do you say about Jesus? Who was He? Some say that He was a myth, perpetuated through history by shallow minds. Some say that He was only a historical person. He did some great things for His fellowman, but that’s it. Some say that He was then, and His teachings are now, offensive. No one likes being called a worthless sinner. But, then again, some of us say that He is Jesusrepparttar 122195 Christ,repparttar 122196 only Begotten Son of God, Savior and Lord, and He is worth savoring. The Bible says that Jesus was God’s glory revealed physically. Men and women inrepparttar 122197 time of Jesus saw with their own eyesrepparttar 122198 very glory of Godrepparttar 122199 Father standing before them—Wow!

Intuitive Palmistry: Reading betweenrepparttar Lines - Part 1

Sceptical? Palm reading has been an intriguing; albeit illusive, ancient art and science. Sometimes thought of as an esoteric occupation, palm reading is not at all what it seems to be. Allow me to elaborate:

Aside from `soothsaying and fortune-telling,' Palm Reading prevails from dermatoglyphics. Dermatoglypics relates to friction ridge formations that appear onrepparttar 122180 palms ofrepparttar 122181 hands and soles ofrepparttar 122182 feet.1

The International Institute of Hand Analysis explains howrepparttar 122183 hands contain coded information relating to a person's character and life purpose.2 Other studies, as undertaken byrepparttar 122184 Department of Psychology of Ohio State University suggest that hand analysis displays individual phenotypes which can become factors with regard to individual and sexual differences in aggression.3

Another study of dermatoglyphics reveals that `an excess of dermatoglyphic alterations may point to schizophrenia tendencies.4 Biologist and Researcher, Dr. John Manning found that length ofrepparttar 122185 fingers can provide information about hormone levels in ones body - thus, effectually allowing one to determine particular disease risk factors as well.5

Still hesitant? What exactly does an intuitive palm reader do? Much like that of a modern sage, an experienced intuitive palm reader can tell one about specific personality traits, disorders, and sometimes can even predict an individual's approximate lifespan.

Professional intuitive palm reader, Per Hogset did an extensive, psychic palm reading for me andrepparttar 122186 results were simply astounding. Upon review of my palm prints, Per wrote a personalized and immensely detailed summary about me; and my life.

Instinctively wise beyond this realm, Per sent merepparttar 122187 following, in-depth `Ultimate Psychic Reading.' I have annotated his revealing report for further distinction:
