    Why Are Most Of Your Friends Girls?

    A question I was persistently asked, particularly in my teens, was why the majority of my friends were female.

    Trial and Temptation

    The Israelites said to them, “If only we had died by the LORD’s hand in Egypt! There we sat around pots of meat and ate all the food we wanted, but you have brought us out into this desert to starve this entire assembly to death.” Exodus 16:3   The Greek word ‘peirasmos’ means both […]

    The Necessity of War

    The enemy is incredibly real and sinisterly powerful. He walks about like a roaring lion, is the prince of the power of the air, and is even called the son of the morning. He was created gloriously majestic but in the pride of his heart he wanted to ascend to the throne of the Most High and become like his Maker. […]

    Turning Towards One Another
