To Them That Have Ears, Part 1

I humbly bring you another letter from my mother, friend, and elder Christian, who is duly concerned with the impoverished and undiscerning state of today's church and professing Christians. She was provoked to grief, and compelled by the Holy Spirit to write what was in her heart to say: and I present it to those who would be considerate enough to pause and listen.

Defending the Faith

"Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints," Jude 1:3.

Christian Liberty

There are few topics more misunderstood in our profession today than Christian liberty. I myself have stumbled over the freedom that we have in Christ, and err toward legalism more than I ought. Others I know who confess Christ tend to stray into license, or using the name of Christ to do whatever they wish, either since they are saved and do not fear wrath, or do not understand what they are doing. Through ignorance or deliberation much damage has been done to the idea and reality of Christian liberty.
