A college classmate of his shared the Gospel when they were under graduates and told him at some point in the future, when he was alone, and everyone […]Read more "Discipleship Matters"
Having finished the Old Testament Minor Prophets for my daily Scripture intake, I have been wondering what to read next. A wonderful fellow, part of the Upper Wisconsin Remnant, gave me The New Testament: According to the Eastern Text, translated from the Original Aramaic Sources.

As a young fellow I interacted with a range of people purposefully heading in the same direction. From that […]Read more "Kingdom Purpose vs Social Pressure"
