Biblical Meekness

A couple of weeks ago, the men’s study group at our church got on the subject of how to be bold in proclaiming the truth of scripture and still be meek. Scripture calls us to be bold and uncompromising when it comes to proclaiming and standing up for scriptural truth. It also means that false …

When the Earth Totters

Let’s face it. It really does seem like the world is going absolutely bonkers. I know, I know, things have been worse in the past. The moral climate of the Roman Empire at the time of the Apostles was far worse than what we are currently dealing with, at least in certain aspects. But if …
