SONSHIP

Romans 8:14-17 “For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry Abba, Father. The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are ...

To Judge or Not To Judge

Christ Died for the Ungodly

Rom. 5:6-9 For when we were without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet per-adventure for a good man some would even dare to die. But God commended his love for us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. ...

Angry Bishops
