God is as holy, as loving, and as just as he always has been. God’s attitude about sin has not changed, nor has the way he deals with it (only Christ has now born the penalty for our sin). God is not the only one that doesn’t change from one testament to another. By and […]

Christians are not alone in seeking wisdom. There are many in the world that spend a lifetime searching for great secrets, and only find unanswered questions. The irony here is that, while men and women travel the world chasing what only amounts to wind, the answers they seek are laid out in plain sight—between the […]
