What can we possibly offer in response and from where can we derive our answers. Isaiah 6 gives us the solution: we must gaze into the face of God....   [tags: culture, why, what, jounrey, exposes]

And opinions, via the Princeton dictionary, are defined as “a personal belief or judgment that is not founded on proof or certainty.” The question now reads: How much do the personal beliefs or judgments of experienced people, in one area, matter in the se...   [tags: Einstein, Research, KNowledge]
