Will God’s purpose be accomplished election day?
I have a degree in theology and so, with complete confidence, I can emphatically state, “It’s a mystery!” I do, however, know this . . . [Continue reading]
WWJE? Who would Jesus elect?
Don’t support someone simply because he or she mouths the right spiritual sound bytes. [Continue reading]
You want me to pray for whom?!
