God calls us to love fervently seasoned in truth with an enormous helping of His grace.
And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: for charity shall cover the multitude of sins. (1 Peter 4:8 KJV)

Be careful what you allow your ears to feed upon in this world.
I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. (Galatians ... Continue Reading →

Then certain of the vagabond Jews, exorcists, took upon them to call over them which had evil spirits the name of the Lord Jesus, saying, We adjure you by Jesus whom Paul preacheth.

Do you have knowledge of an eternal nature or faulty intellect from the god of this world?
And if any man think that he knoweth any thing, he knoweth nothing yet as he ought to know. (1 Corinthians 8:2 KJV)
There are many who revel in knowledge gathered in this world. Human strength, power, and knowledge have been proven time and time again to be an unreliable and precarious foundation. In ancient biblical times Greece is often looked upon as ... Continue Reading →
Are you resting upon your own works or Christ’s finished work on the cross to spend eternity with God?
That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. (John 3:15 KJV)
