Check to make sure your fruit isn’t rotten…

Every now and then I perform a reflective self-check of sorts. The Apostle Paul wrote an epistle to the Christian community in Galatia (he explicitly says this in verse 2). The book in the Bible that houses said epistle is aptly titled… You already know… Galatians. After supplying a greeting that is typical of his epistles and […]

A bitter, merry laugh

I am frustrated because everyone who has read Abusing His Grace has said overall good things about it, but I’m still looking for ideas to increase its visibility.
