Ray Comfort and the Living Waters crew are at it again, with a new movie addressing the subject of homosexuality. The Living Waters team was kind enough to share the film with me, and I’m happy to share my thoughts on it. I’ve long been a supporter of Living Waters, and have followed that ministry […]

A Look at the Rapture, Part 2: Matthew 24

June 18, 2014

A Look at the Rapture, Introduction

June 10, 2014

Eric Douma: Legalism – The Risk of False Binding and Loosing (Mark 7:1-8)

January 6, 2013

The Pharisees were known for their stringent, manmade regulations that they placed around the law of God in order to “fence” people off from breaking the law. These manmade regulations destroyed people’s lives by their burdensome requirements, but they also damaged people in an even greater way by promising a false righteousness for the zealous […]
