Individual Soul Liberty

Just so you know, I have never believed nor taught that God only chose a few people to be saved and others are just out of the grace loop. This is a teaching called Calvinism, and I believe it’s entirely false. Each and every one of us has the God given right to choose. If… Read More »

A Rule In Understanding Scripture

President Elect Trump

These protests and riots over Donald Trumps election kinda reminds me of when the prophet spoke Gods Words: “Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We… Read More »
