Read the Bible in a year: Genesis 3-4, Psalm 3-5, Matthew 3-4
At the end of every year I sit through CBS's miserable parade of Hollywood celebrities who passed into eternity during that year. My heart breaks because I know that they are just a handful of the 159,635 who die each day (Guinness World Records 2012, p. 103). As Christians, we have found everlasting life in Christ, but according to statistics many of us don't think this is worth spreading. We have become silent on that issue and instead become politically passionate. However, evangelism was the primary agenda of the Church in the Book of Acts. It wasn't to bring about change for a better life by changing Roman politics. That would have been to put the cart before the horse, and when that happens you aren't going anywhere. That's what has been happening in America for the last 30 years. Think about the moral issues we face and ask if they have got better or worse-abortion, pornography, violence, homosexual marriage, divorce, pedophilia, adultery, blasphemy and fornication. Every issue has escalated because the Church has attacked the fruit, when it should take the gospel and go for the root.
Copying Bacteria for Solar Energy. "Structural studies of some of nature's most efficient light-harvesting systems are lighting the way for new generations of biologically inspired solar cell devices. Researchers from Washington University in St. Louis and the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory used small-angle neutron scattering to analyze the structure of chlorosomes in green photosynthetic bacteria. Chlorosomes are efficient at collecting sunlight for conversion to energy, even in low-light and extreme environments." Co-author and leading research scientist Volker Urban of ORNL's Center for Structural Molecular Biology said, "It's one of the most efficient light harvesting antenna complexes found in nature.."1.
