I hear that from a lot of folks. They say to me, “I just don’t feel the need for Christ.” As if Christianity were something that were packaged and sold through Madison Avenue! That what we’re trying to communicate to …Read More
How can a person have a divine nature and a human nature at the same time in the way that we believe Jesus Christ did?
