Building To Stand Or To Fall There are many teachings in the discourse of the Sermon on the Mount. It covers about every aspect of pleasing God and the reality of how things are. It answers questions that people keep asking all the while they keep refusing and accepting the answers. Jesus closed the discourse with a story of two...
That Good Thing Timothy was called to preach and was a pastor.  What Paul wrote applies to us all.  It was written brother to brother, Christian to Christian.  He wrote about our relationship with the Lord.  In the midst of it all, life seems to go from one suffering to another, from one problem to another.  We...
The Missing God Acts 17: 22Then Paul stood in the midst of Mars’ hill, and said, Ye men of Athens, I perceive that in all things ye are too superstitious. 23For as I passed by, and beheld your devotions, I found an altar with this inscription, TO THE UNKNOWN GOD.

We know we can trust what he tells us.  It’s important to grasp the meaning because everything hinges on this truth.
