  • The Difficult Trail to Truth

    The Difficult Trail to Truth

    Corinthians 10:13, states that “… God … will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able …” – I hear this verse oft quoted by well meaning friends and family. They say that we will not be given burdens greater than we can carry. Too many forget the rest of this particular […]

  • Relationships Matter

    Relationships Matter
