Personal Testimonies

The Counterfeit Universe

By Danny Parkes

The message you are about to read is not the fictitious tale of two cities, as Charles Dickens wrote about. Instead, it is the very real story of two ancient universes, one a good universe, and the other, a terribly evil one. These universes are huge. They are the “big players” you will need to…

A letter to my landlord

By Danny Parkes

Dear Dave, I thought I would write you to wish you and your family season’s greetings. At this time of year, many people celebrate many different things. And when I was young, Jesus was not really part of the celebration. Today, it remains true that many people who celebrate Christmas do not celebrate the birth…

God Needs You to Help Others

By Danny Parkes

My head was screaming with disagreement. I did not have peace. Sure, I had exercise, for I was at the pool. But I didn’t have peace. I had great disturbance, for I was concerned about so many things. What were those things? Hum … they were hard to enumerate. I felt like a failure. I…

Divine Encounter: The S/x Shop Worker

By Danny Parkes

As I was running to catch my bus, I could not help but notice the man standing in front of the s/x shop. Certainly this man was in great need, and did not know the Lord. That, I was certain. I walked over to the man and started a conversation with him. “Are you the…

The issue of sexual relationships is an important one that many people differ on in terms of their opinions. It used to be, long ago, that I believed in sexual relationships before marriage. And I had no real standard to go by, as many do today, and so I could not really define what was…
