It is clear from Scripture that Christians are commanded to evangelize those around us.  Jesus explicitly stated, “…Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature” (Mark 16:15).  However, as we go about doing such, we would be wise to learn that not every person will react identically to another.  To

Beware Of False Teachers And False Doctrine

The Bible is the most amazing book that has ever been written.  Time after time, situations of life arise, and the Bible always has the answers that we need.  With that being stated, I wonder just how often some people even read the Bible.  I know that the masses of humanity are largely ignorant of
