I just want to say right off the top that I know this is a sensitive topic for a lot of people. However, it’s also a topic that has been distorted by atheists and others who would seek to damage the credibility of the Bible. The reality is that some subjects are difficult, but they […]Read More The Early Church and Slavery
There is a tremendous amount of pressure on young preachers in this day and age. Success isn’t measured by faithfulness to the Word of God, but rather by how many people are in your church or how much money you collect.

Anxiety rules our world. From the most powerful people in the world, to the very poorest people in the world, no one is exempt from anxiety. The problem, especially in America, is that we have built lifestyles that revolve around impatience. We don’t want to wait for anything.
