Shootings, road rage and multi-generational feuds. Tifts that play “tit for tat”. These are actions frequently fueled by a flawed trait of our now-fallen human nature. It illustrates our tendency toward revenge. Vengeance taken out on those who annoy or attack us is an instance in which we permit our anger to dominate our reasoning.
The oft-relatable feeling is seen gnawing away at numerous literary and cinematic characters. Jim Caviezel’s Edmond Dantes from The Count of Monte C...

A love so passionate
Now fiercely enflamed
It fuses us together
No particle or property
Between these bodies
The puzzle gradually
Human beings remain utterly unique among the living entities of God’s created hierarchy. We have bodies like the members of the animal kingdom as well as immortal spirits, the same substance of the angelic beings, which instill life in us. The human soul exists as the spiritual dimension of who we are.

God is asking us, “Who holds your trust?” The right answer should, of course, be God. But mortal tribulations are also meant to serve another purpose. Suffering is meant to be sacrificed, offer...

In 1964, TV audiences were introduced to his portrayal of the clean-cut, stealthy submarine commander Lee Crane. And in the seventies and eighties, moviegoers would recognize him in his role as James Bond’s comrade Felix Leiter.
