Welcome

Eyes2C is a website of resource links created to help equip parents, teachers, and ministry/church leaders to invest in the next generation, as well as for anyone else who wants to find evidence that the Bible is true. Anyone seeking true freedom can find it through Jesus Christ. Those who turn from their own ways and choose to follow Him are able to experience the abundant life He offers because of His great love for us.

“Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”

John 8:32

“As for you, you were dead in your transgressions and sins, in which you used to live when you followed the ways of this world and of the ruler of the kingdom of the air, the spirit who is now at work in those who are disobedient. All of us also lived among them at one time, gratifying the cravings of our flesh and following its desires and thoughts. Like the rest, we were by nature deserving of wrath. But because of His great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions – it is by grace you have been saved. And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with Him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, in order that in the coming ages He might show the incomparable riches of His grace, expressed in His kindness to us in Christ Jesus. For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith – and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God – not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.”

Ephesians 2:1-10

Although we will experience spiritual warfare (battle between good & evil) as well as challenging times on earth, Jesus offers us peace that the world cannot know and the Holy Spirit’s supernatural power so we can please Him and find fulfillment as we discover the path we were created to follow. Jesus sustains us as we trust in Him, making it possible for us to have joy even in the midst of trials. Nothing on earth compares to His amazing love, mercy, grace, faithfulness, power, patience, creative genius, and justice. Looking forward to eternity in heaven with Him compels me to celebrate and share about our glorious Savior, Jesus Christ, so others can also know Him and also spend eternity in heaven.

May the plethora of links allow you to easily and quickly seek out evidence for yourself and others that God has revealed Himself through the wonders of His Creation, through His inspired Word, and through the lives of transformed people.

“What no eye has seen,
    what no ear has heard,
and what no human mind has conceived—
    the things God has prepared for those who love Him—
these are the things God has revealed to us by His Spirit.”

1 Corinthians 2:9-10

“Jesus said, ‘But blessed are your eyes, for they see, and your ears, for they hear’.” 

Matthew 13:16
