911

Today we remember September 11, 2001. Called 911 in memory of the date on which it occurred and to honor the heroic first responders who gave so much to help those involved and who continue to pay the price for their heroism. We all remember where we were when we first heard of the planes.…

The Only God There Is

T  Exodus 3:13 “Then Moses said to God, “If I come to the people of Israel and say to them, ‘The God of your fathers has sent me to you,’ and they ask me, ‘What is his name?’ what shall I say to them?” (ESV)  The Israelites had been exposed to more than one god…

Others may have challenging questions or arguments such as, According to Ephesians 2:8,9 we are not saved…
