2019 Aug 0621m 5s
Carnal Christianity has emerged from centuries of the church trying to do the impossible: tame the flesh.

Not a Christianity that … Continue reading

It is easy to receive the “Grace Message” and become so focused on God’s love for us and grace toward us that we forget that there is a whole lot more to living in this world.
