HELP! I Married A Wolf!

“Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.  Ye shall know them by their fruits” (Matt 7:15-16). We have this stark warning from Jesus in Scripture, but it is amazing how few of us take heed of this.  The […]

When I Consider The Universe…

The discovery of the Universe is perhaps the most amazing discovery of man. Yet, it’s beyond our exploration. While men can boast of travelling around the world in months, weeks or even days…we can’t boast of travelling around the universe in a lifetime! We can’t even imagine what […]
