I have a couple of young male friends who once made a science of flirting. They read books about it, fastidiously putting what they learned into practice.

Until talking to them, I never knew of the volumes of material written on the subject. I assumed people just followed their instincts. No. Flirting has been raised to a science.
For example, a blogger named Donalgraeme created [...]
In an effort to “get us,” the enemy tells us lies, half-truths and even complete truths (in deceptive ways) in his effort to get us to doubt our Salvation. Let’s look at a few of his arrows.

Thanks to the work of a small team of volunteers at Seminar Schloss Bogenhofen (link to video tour), a Seventh-day Adventist seminary in Austria, we can invite lesson author Dr Martin Pröbstle into our homes or our Sabbath School classes to introduce the lesson.

Since 1981, when I began preaching in high school, I have preached in many churches from Chiclayo, Peru, to Torrington, Connecticut. I have spoken to large and small congregations with various needs.

One Sabbath several years ago, I was preaching in one of the most conservative churches I [...]
It was November, 1966. My husband was in the Army and I was at home with our young son. Our second child was due in January. The princely sum of $183.10 a month (the Army allotment for dependents) didn’t go very far. First, I would lay aside the tithe, then the house payment of $64. Utilities came next and whatever was left over was earmarked for groceries.
