Women of the Word: Women Who Ate Their Children

It is truly a sad, nauseating retelling of a horrible event that took place, but this tragic story is yet another reason why we know the Bible is true. In His Holy Word, God honestly tackles difficult subjects – rape, murder, […]

Good for Us

Why is Good Friday considered “good”? Christ was betrayed by one disciple, denied by another, and deserted by the others. He was mocked and beaten, stripped and slapped, interrogated and jeered. He was declared innocent, but put to death anyway. The perfect became a sacrifice for the imperfect. He was forsaken by God, His Father. […]
