Why It Really Is “All About the Love”

“It’s all about the love” Regardless of which canon of scripture one subscribes to – whether it be the Bible alone (with or without apocryphal books), or the Quran alone, or one of the Mormon collections (consisting of The Bible, the Book of Mormon, the Doctrine and Covenants, and Pearl of Great Price, or any […]

The Nature of Christ

Someone posted the following question today on facebook: “Do you think the symbol of the cross is disrespectful to Christ? Did Satan inspire this, to focus on His execution?… the Lord does say “take up your cross and follow me” and He submitted Himself to the cross when He had all the power to end […]
