If your church does not regularly share the gospel, maybe they don’t know it as well as they think they do. Half a Gospel General William Booth, the founder of the Salvation Army, was about the most fervent and passionate man I’ve read about in witnessing to the lost. He once said, “Most Christian organizations would like to send their workers to Bible College for five years. I would like to send our workers to hell for five minutes. That… Read more

Why does God set up cities of refuge for the nation of Israel? Are these cities symbolic of something or someone else?

We are not really the evangelists…God is the true evangelist, and here’s why. God Grants Repentance I take heart in the fact that God is in control of salvation. From beginning to end, it is fully a work of God, but God does use others as a means to accomplish His purpose, and that purpose is sometimes met when God grants them repentance.

White Supremacists Expect more trouble because of the white supremacists, and specifically, Richard Spencer, and even though this is nothing new to this nation, the message they bring is about as anti-American as it can be. White supremacists have been around for as long as the nation has existed, but today they’re becoming more vocal and visible, and this can lead to violence. Former president George… Read more
