I Need…Truth

Let’s work from the premise that God made us good. He said it! When God says it…then it is so! In the beginning  God makes the heavens and the earth…the day and the night…the waters and the sky…the land and the sea…seed bearing plants and trees… “And God said, ‘Let the water teem with living creatures,…

Heresy – My “Crime”?

A few months ago I came across a quick questionnaire that in ten minutes told me my personality “type”. I shared the quiz with my friends and family and they confirmed that the test was “accurate”.
