It's been an exciting trip. The topic of God's grace has been dealt with so forcefully and effectively in this book that one cannot escape the overwhelming truth ...

But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.(2 Corinthians 3:18, NKJV) How many times have we heard this phrase, "Please be patient, God is not finished with me yet." Even as an octogenarian, I recognize I am a work in progress! During my e...

jack-b-sin-forgiveness-resized

One of the most popular falsehoods of our times is that we can do whatever we want without ever being held accountable for what we have done. That is a lie! It is a lie that I can do as I please and become spiritual later. It is a lie, wrote the Scotsman's John Brown, "that a man may attain ultimate happiness without living a spiritual life." Make no mistake about it -...

Inside the church people find their spirituality in private, contemplative devotion and begin to practice those disciplines.

Too far gone?

The thought must have crossed King David's mind as he stood at the door of the windowless room and stared at a dark corner, in the direction of the woman he had robbed.
