How close can you get to God?

Let's Talk Gospel

The closest anyone can get to God is to have Him live within your heart. When I was a child we used to sing: “Don’t try to tell me God is dead, He woke me up this morning. Don’t try tell me He is not alive, He lives within my heart.” But before He can take up residence in yours or my heart, we must be born again. When an individual is born again, he becomes united with Christ and one with Him. The Holy Scripture says: “But whoever is united with the Lord is one with him in spirit” (1 Corinthians 6:17).

Therefore, if  we are one with Christ, we are close to Him. He has even promised that He will never leave you nor forsake you.So, this notion that He is far off is a trick the enemy use to convince us into believing that we have…

Afghanistan Presidential Election Season Kicks Off


Candidates for Afghanistan’s April 5 presidential election officially launched their campaigns Sunday with a series of rallies held in Kabul, but it remains to be seen whether the next president will have a closer relationship with the United States than the obstreperous incumbent Hamid Karzai. 

There are 11 candidates vying to replace Karzai, who cannot run again, reports the BBC. The president has repeatedly held back from signing a security deal that would allow the U.S. military to carry out operations against the Taliban and suspected terrorists in the war-torn country, saying his successor could handle negotiations.

The academic Ashraf Ghani, who is running with former Uzbek warlord Gen Abdul Rashid Dostum and ethnic Hazara tribal chieftain Sarwar Danish as vice-presidents, promised at his rally Sunday to bring change. And the candidate Abdullah Abdullah said the world should not be frightened of Afghanistan, and Afghans should not be frightened…

Watch Seth Meyers Say Goodbye to SNL With a Little Help From His Friends


In just three weeks, Saturday Night Live’s current head writer (and TIME cover star) Seth Meyers will head over to Late Night to take over for Jimmy Fallon. But last night, Meyers officially ended his 13-year SNL run. Since he spent the past eight years as co-anchor on the show’s Weekend Update segment, it only made sense for him to bid his farewell from behind the fake news desk.

After Meyers delivered his final joke—one about weed, obviously—his co-anchor Cecily Strong brought out two of Meyers’ old SNL pals: former co-anchor Amy Poehler and Bill Hader. Hader, of course, was in character as the flamboyant New York City correspondent Stefon.

“We are so proud of you. You’ve been the heart of the show for over a decade,” Poehler said. “You’re like the Sting of SNL,” Stefon added, “Because it takes you 12 years to finish.”

J.K. Rowling Says Hermione Should Have Ended Up With Harry Potter, Not Ron


Well, everything you thought you knew about love is a lie. Turns out J.K. Rowling thinks she made a huge mistake by pairing Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley in the Harry Potter novels. Hermione really should have married Harry, the author said in a recent interview for the upcoming issue of Wonderland magazine, guest-edited by Emma Watson.

Here’s what Rowling said, in excerpts printed by British newspaper The Sunday Times:

“I wrote the Hermione/Ron relationship as a form of wish fulfillment,” she says. “That’s how it was conceived, really. For reasons that have very little to do with literature and far more to do with me clinging to the plot as I first imagined it, Hermione ended up with Ron.”

Rowling said she knew this admission would upset many Harry Potter diehards, and offered the following apology:

“I know, I’m sorry,” she continued, “I can hear the rage and…
