Pope Francis and Catholicos Karekin II release doves at the Khor Virap monastery towards Mount Ararat in Armenia.

and on the seventeenth day of the seventh month the ark came to rest on the mountains of Ararat. - Genesis 8:11

So he waited yet another seven days; and again he sent out the dove from the ark. The dove came to him toward evening, and behold, in her beak was a freshly picked olive leaf. So Noah knew that the water was abated from the earth. Then he waited yet another seven days, and sent out the dove; but she did not return to him again. - Genesis 8:11

Conversation I was in with an Atheist

Earlier today I said aloud, “Well thank God for that.” And a man looked at me and said,
“God is dead.” I asked him, “Are you atheist?” He replied frustratingly, “Yes.” So I said, “Well you’re not much of an atheist.” He looked at me aggravated and asked, “What do you mean by that?” And I told him, “Well you just said that God died which means you’re stating that you believe he was alive at least once, which acknowledges that you believe in God, also if you’re implying that God died as in when Jesus died on the cross than you’re admitting that Jesus was God and you’re already closer to believing in God than the Trinitarians.” He just sat there quitely. “By the way man, you stopped reading a little too soon; God resurrects and then goes back to Heaven where he’s waiting on you and me to die.” He hasn’t talked to me since but he hasn’t had an attitude either. I think something is stirring inside of him.

Atheism Vs Christianity - The Logical Choice

My best friend since highschool, Jake, and I have had many Christian Vs Atheism debates. He defended the Atheists side while I the Christian’s.
He was raised Baptist and had been “saved”, a word here meaning that he “accepted Jesus into his heart, which is the the method the majority of baptists believe is required to receieve salvation, as a teenager and during highschool he converted to Atheism due to a prayer that was not answered the way he believe it should have been. His youth leader’s wife was ill with cancer. She died. He believed his prayers and the prayers of his church would convince God to intervene for her life. When they did not, he decided that God couldn’t be real or that God would not be worth serving if He did exist.

During one of our conversations He fought that living for God is illogical. My rebuttal was that living for God is the most logical decision you’ll ever make. He asked me "How so?” I pulled two quarters out of my pocket, placing one in each hand face up. I held them out to Jake and said “We’re going to do a coin toss for our lives. The coin in my left hand has a tails and the coin my right has two heads. Which coin would you bet on to save your life?” Being the butt head that he is he sarcastically chose the coin in my left hand he knew had a tails but he understand my point. I elaborated by saying, If I die and God does not exist than I’m ok. If He does exist I’m ok. If you die and God does not exist you’re ok. If He does exist than you’re not ok. Therefore your gambling on 50% with the option of gambling on 100% No logical person would take 50% over 100% chance of security in their favor of any gamble in any situation. Living for God is the most logical decision you’ll ever make.

1 Corinthians 11:15 But if a woman have long hair, it is a glory to her: for her hair is given to her for a covering.

I don’t keep my hair uncut because it’s what everyone else at my church does. I do it because the bible says that a woman’s hair is her glory given to her for a covering to set her apart from this world. 

Deuteronomy 22:5 “A woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman’s garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the LORD thy God.”

I don’t wear skirts because all the girls at my church wear skirts I do it because the bible says that a woman should not wear what a man would wear.

Even in Pentecost, it’s easy to just go with the flow, follow the crowd. We as Christians need to realize the importance of our walk with God. the key is that it is ours and following the standards of the Apostolic church just because everyone else at church is doing it isn’t going to save you. You must know why you’re doing it. Only then can you live a life pleasing unto The Lord.

The only way to be the first person in line and the last person in line is to be the ONLY person in line. Jesus can’t be “second” If he said he was the first and the last. Jesus is the only one in line that’s how he’s the first and last. “There is none beside me. I know not one.” Jesus is the only God.
