More Than Head Knowledge

I grew up in the church. Literally, since before I was born, I was in church. My mom sang in the choir, played the piano, taught Sunday school classes, directed Easter and Christmas programs…while she was pregnant, after I was born and through my adulthood.   It is very safe to say I spent every extra minute of my time at church, going to church, serving in church, being in church.

For all who are led by the spirit of God are …

Salvation is from Hell

Myth or Real: Salvation is from Hell When someone is “saved”, exactly what are they saved from? Every person’s salvation experience is unique, and I’m sure there are many deciding factors, but as a ten-year-old child, I wanted to be saved from Hell. “But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars—they will be consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.” (Revelation 21: 8 INV) After a description like that, how could anyone not call to Jesus for salvation? If Hell …
