One More Rumbling On

The whole post, articulate to the core, by Darren Sumner is well worth your attention, exposing as it does Bruce Ware’s faulty method and faulty theology.

How I’m Learning to Love God with my Mind

How I’m Learning To Love God With My Mind, By Michelle Van Loon My Jewish parents used to tell me that the one thing “they” couldn’t take from me was an education.
