Creation Ministries International Gives Up On Living Dinosaurs

While I was watching humans trying to save dinosaurs from extinction in the fictional cinema-verse of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, I remembered reading an article from Creation Ministries International called “Dinosaurs are almost certainly extinct” (February 22, 2018).

Should Christians Celebrate Easter?

It is a sad truth, but there are Christians who object to the celebration of Christmas and Easter as vehemently as they oppose participation in Halloween.
