The Incredible Misunderstood Story of the Lord and Gideon

The last post talked about how “the Word of God” was an important character that John identifies as “Jesus of Nazareth” in his gospel.

Answering Theological Questions With a Perspective Change

The book of Hebrews gives the following description of Christ when it encourages us to have faith: Therefore let us also, seeing we are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that…

So, Would Jesus Wear a Mask?

This post is the third in a series. The previous post addressed how to confront rules that are designed to improve your life, but have the effect of making you want to jump off a bridge. It answers the question “Would Jesus Wear a Mask?” Christ and Caesar and the Church Not long ago, Pastor…
