Special Day of Prayer for the Enemies of the President

Franklin Graham is holding a “special day of prayer” for Donald Trump on June 2nd. Graham says the president needs prayer because he has been attacked more than any other president in history. Trump needs prayer, Graham proclaimed, because the entire nation will suffer if his enemies prevail. I think Graham is going about this in the wrong way. If he really believes Trump is being attacked and persecuted, he should pray also for those he sees as the enemy. Matthew 5:45 tells us:  But I tell you,...

Smoking cannabis just once as a teenager is enough to alter brain structure

Smoking cannabis just once as a teenager is enough to alter brain structure, a new study suggests.

Although more brain cells might seem beneficial, in fact the developing teenage brain at this stage should be pruning cells as it prepares for adulthood, removing unwanted neural connections and allowing important links to be strengthened.
