    The Bible is an amazing book filled with wisdom and wonder; but in the process of studying it, it is fair to say that some books of the Bible receive more attention than others. The four Gospels, along with a lot of the rest of the New Testament, are referenced an inordinate number of times in church sermons, daily devotionals, and even on bumper stickers. However, when was the last time you saw a quote from Judges or Nahum on the back of the car that just cut you off in traffic?

    There’s really nothing like a bowl of warm chicken noodle soup when the weather grows cold, and noses get stuffy. This recipe is one that’s been passed down through my family for generations, each new iteration learning from and improving upon the last.

    Christian Heavy Metal Exists, And It’s Great

    Overall, what I want this article to come down to is this: if you have an ear for complex music and have stayed away from metal in the past because you couldn’t find a band whose message you resonated with, look no further.

    How To Create The Perfect Holiday Makeup Look
