I love Bible questions! A few of them recently came up in teen Sunday School, regarding 2 Thessalonians 2:6. Here were the questions: Was Old Testament salvation by faith, or by works? Did the Holy Spirit indwell believers in the Old Testament? Will the Holy Spirit indwell believers during the Tribulation?

Stuff that can help you, stretch you, help you grow in your faith, challenge you to think about something maybe just a little bit differently. So, on that note, I offerRead More →

I’ll probably send out a more comprehensive letter this week, but I have a few quick things for now: Please pray for Arlene’s son-in-law. He has been unexpectedly hospitalized because of fluid build-up around heart, which has impeded his breathing. His name is Cody, and he is only 33 years old. Needless to say, this is unexpected and he needs prayer. I chatted with George and Shirley this evening, by video. They’re doing well, and they’ll be back with us in seven short weeks! As far as the proposed revisions to the doctrinal statement go, I have a short video where I chat about theRead More →
