Five Seconds After You Die We read in the paper of accidents, car accidents and young people dying, and there
are questions, many questions people have in their hearts, about the reality of what happens after death, and what

sin by empowering something else. The power that you give something else overcomes the sin. Have you ever lo st
your ability to enjoy what God's given you, because you've compared it to somebody else? Can you clearly define
what you want?
Are You Worthy (1 of 2) There are four verses in the Bible that say homosexuality's wrong. There are 2 000 verses
in the Bible that tell us to love each other, so maybe we've got our emphasis wrong? Who is worthy to break the
seals, and open the scrolls? But no one in heaven - so there's people already in heaven, who aren't worthy - no one
in heaven, or earth, or under the earth, could open the scroll, or even look inside of it. Jesus' invitation was not to be a
