Saying No to Militancy

I’d like to share one of my favorite articles by Pastor Hal Bekemeyer. This guy has been around the grace movement about as long as I’ve been alive (yes, he’s that old but don’t tell him I said that). He is also a regular co-host on our Grace Life Podcasts. I crack jokes and Hal ...
