June 20, 2012


In closing his message titled The Christian’s Assurance of Salvation, Paul Washer contrasts the difference between a child of God, who receives the loving discipline of the Father, and the illigitimate (bastard) child who receives no discipline at all but continues in his waywardness.

Gutless Gracers’ Easy-believism

March 20, 2012


Before and shortly after God saved me in March 2009, most of the websites I followed were primarily concerned with biblical prophecy.
