By in Highlands Blog on

Do not worry about tomorrow. Man worrying about the clock.

Do Not Worry About Tomorrow Man is the only created being that not only functions in time, but also attempts to control it. More specifically, man worries about the future. While squirrels may harvest nuts for the winter, and bees make honey for future consumption instinctively, Man tends to go beyond provision, seeking to control or escape the future. This is a clear violation of Jesus’ exhortation not to worry about tomorrow (Matthew 5:25-34). Three Ways We Worry Planning for the future—that is biblically wise, as is walking by faith. However, here are three harmful ways to consider the future,. . .

The Problem with Conspiracy Theories

Conspiracy Theories & Gossip When nations gossip we often call it a conspiracy.

By in Highlands Fellow on

There is a lot of fear out there over what our government will do next. Will we be taxed insensible? Will our guns and gold be seized? Will homeschooling remain legal? Must we obtain more registrations and numbers from the central government? Are the banks going bankrupt? Will the dollar devalue into uselessness? Things have never looked so grim. But wait—we are already taxed insensible, gold was already seized once (in 1933), homeschooling has often been treated as illegal, we already have a universal government registration number, the banks have been essentially bankrupt for decades (although they have been keeping. . .
