Elementary, October 25: Jeremiah and the Fall of Judah

There was a lot to be sad about in Jeremiah’s day. The people of Israel had turned against God and were about to experience the consequences of their rebellion.

Elementary, October 4: Elijah vs. the Prophets of Baal

There is only one God and He deserves our complete and total allegiance. Yet, we so often put anything and everything ahead of Him. This isn’t a new problem, though. It’s been happening almost since the dawn of time. But, over and over again, God has proven to be the one true God – like He did when his prophet, Elijah, faced off with the prophets of a false god named Baal.
