Jesus Said What?!

Loud and Clear!

Saved By Faith or Works? A Look at the “Contradiction” Between Paul and James

“The Bible is full of contradictions!” I hear people say this all the time. Most of the time, if you were to ask that person to name one, they can’t. But that is not to say that there aren’t parts of the Bible that don’t seem to fit with the rest. Indeed, there are parts […]

8 Things That Won’t Get You To Heaven

Just about everybody wants to go to heaven when they die.
