How Do Morals And Values Become Relative?

Have you ever wondered how our morals and values became relative? From time to time I teach Sunday school at a church where most of the members are in their sixties and seventies. I ask the question, how many of you feel like you are living in a different country than the one you grew…

Superficial Spirituality

Have you ever wondered why doesn’t the Lord answer your prayers? In Isaiah 58 the Israelite wondered about the same thing.

2 THESSALONIANS 2:3 “let no one deceive you by any means; for that day will not come unless the falling away comes first…”   What will Christianity look like as we get closer to the return of Christ? Does the Bible foresee any general trends? Do we see some of those trends already at work in…
