Light

Genesis 1:4 God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness.    I flew with a former pastor the other day.  I had heard of him before.  He was a great teacher.  He had a large 600 member church, and travelled around the world teaching the Bible.  After a handshake and back slap he proudly declared to me that he no […]

The Bible’s word ‘together’ is more of […]
