Our Need for Discernment

Discernment is important because not everyone who claims to speak for God actually does. Jesus said they were wolves in sheep’s clothing. They appear harmless, but actually threaten your soul......

Commentary on The Supreme Court Ruling on Same-Sex Marriage?

Sure thing. First, an inerrant analysis; then a personal promise. 1.

Christ and his cross hav...

Sola Scriptura: The Erosion of Authority
