To Speak As I Ought To Speak

To Speak As I Ought To Speak

There is a right method of gospel declaration and there is an incorrect method. I think that it is easy to assume that since so few will even mention the gospel that we should be grateful for any methods that are employed in sharing it...

Resolved, To Live With All My Might

Resolved, To Live With All My Might

The last few years I have drawn encouragement and inspiration from Jonathan Edwards' famous resolutions and advice to young converts.

The Eternally Minded Family of Mr. Judson

I firmly believe that orthodoxy leads to orthopraxy, that right belief will powerfully lead us into right living...
