  • A Confession of Faith on the Inspiration and Preservation of Scripture, part 1 -- "I confess that God, through a supernatural operation of His Spirit, used holy men to miraculously produce the autographs of the 66 canonical books of the Bible, controlling them in such a manner that the very words, and all of the words, that they recorded were the very words of God Himself."

  • Fake Florida doctor who ‘enhanced’ buttocks with cement, caulking gets 10 years for manslaughter -- "On Monday, a judge sentenced Morris to 10 years in prison and five years probation for her crimes."

  • Why read the Bible in the King James Version? -- "Although there may be different opinions on translation or textual choices (as proposed by these authors), every reading in the KJV can be justified by reasonable alternative theories."
