By Mardi Collier This is a start to a list of the characteristics of God that will help you in your study of beginning to know Him.

Every decision we make in our "every-day lives" should be impacted by what we believe about our God.

By Jason Harris Virtual reality implies artificial, but the cyber-phenomenon that dominates today's generation is anything but artificial.
