The Murder of Jesus Chapters 1-4

March 25, 2020 | by: Jarrod Lamberth | 0 Comments

In human justice systems, the innocent are sometimes wrongly punished, while the wicked sometimes escape, or even prosper.

March 6, 2020 | by: James Law | 0 Comments

Scripture does not hold back from the good and the painful, and Paul’s relationship with Demas was certainly a sorrow. In the final chapter of his final New Testament epistle, Paul mentions Demas with these parting words, “Dem... Keep Reading

Demas: Who Loved This Present World

February 28, 2020 | by: James Law | 0 Comments

July 18, 2019 | by: Jarrod Lamberth | 0 Comments

In the previous posts on perseverance, we learned that God guarantees our completion in Christ (Philippians 1:6), and that He, Himself, is the source of our eternal life (John 10:27-30).
