Over the next 100 days, Daniel Triestman and I will be writing a very short devotional (about 100 words) each day on our Lord Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount. We will post it on our blog eachdayintheword.blogspot.com. We invite comments.
Sermon on the Mount—Day 1

I wrote a series of blogs on misterrodgerssbl.blogspot.com entitled, “Why I am not an atheist.” Each blog is a telling of a struggle I had worked through regarding my Christian Faith. But in truth, the pivotal reason I am not an atheist is because of the words of the Lord Jesus, for who but the Diety could say what He said?
