Peace that passes understanding

Sunday, September 2nd, 2012

So I was looking this morning for a passage I’ve always wanted to memorize, but never have (Philippians 4:8, “Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.”) […]

Our Unchanging God

Monday, January 30th, 2012

Reading the beginning of Amos today showed me another “New Testament” concept that was really in full force in the Old Testament, giving more credence to the unchanging nature of God.

Laws of Morality

Wednesday, March 18th, 2009
