NORTH KOREA PURPORTEDLY WILLING TO OPEN ITS DOORS TO CHRISTIANITY

The king’s heart is in the hand of the Lord, Like the rivers of water; He turns it wherever He wishes. (Proverbs 21:1) As I scrolled down Facebook this morning, I came across an article a friend had shared regarding Kim Jong-un being willing to open North Korea to the gospel. For those who are…

When Feelings Undermine Faith

More Than A Match For The Moment

THE GOOD, THE BEAUTIFUL, AND THE TRUE

One thing I have desired of the Lord, That will I seek: That I may dwell in the house of the Lord All the days of my life, To behold the beauty of the Lord, And to inquire in His temple. (Psalms 27:4) There are those who would have us believe that mankind is getting…
