  • Augustine Media Resource by

    As Augustine wrestled with Christianity and whether or not to embrace it, he struggled with sexual immorality. Possessing a long time concubine, through whom he fathered a son, Augustine refused to end this affair. Even after his amazing conversion, which, at least in Augustine’s mind, only occurred after targeting this vice, Augustine still struggled in this area. Perhaps this “thorn in the flesh” contributed to Augustine’s eventual realization concerning the burden of sin and the need for grace: if not for the work of God through His Spirit in the heart of man, he would go on sinning out of … View Resource

  • The Bishop Media Resource by

    Although the understanding of the office of bishop eventually became perverted and corrupted in the ancient church, the office as defined in Scripture possesses biblical support and apostolic precedent.

Theirs is a high calling, and it is their responsibility to lead God’s people in righteousness, through times of trial … View Resource
