When we consult the Scriptures further we see that God does not explicitly command against war or against the taking of another’s life. Murder, which is different than killing, is explicitly condemned.
Now, Isn’t That Something! God’s Grace in Romania through Ben and Anda Mogos and Insight for Living Ministries
Over four years, Ben and Anda became the prototype for Vision 195. While both were enrolled at DTS Ben became an intern at Stonebriar Community Church, where Chuck serves as senior pastor-teacher.
One donor told us, “I give because there are eternal benefits. The sound biblical teaching is so valuable, so important. You never know who is listening or who will turn on the radio, but you can make sure it's always there.”
Shame and pride keep our disabilities safely tucked out of sight. In shame, we fear the humiliation of finger-pointing when others see our weaknesses, and in pride, we suppose that a show of perfection will elevate us to heights of success and acceptance.

God makes some people large, others moderate in stature. Still others are small in size. We frequently make the mistake of calling small folks “little,” but that is an unfortunate and unfair tag. I’m not picking at terms...there is a great deal of difference between being small and being little.

To combat ageism, we first need to become aware of it in ourselves and those around us. We become informed by reading about aging and talking with older people about ageism.
Quite literally lives have been saved and salvaged because of this ministry. And it happens because you, and people like you, pray and give. Together we are the voice of Jesus to the marginalized in our day and in our country providing biblical truth and hope.
