I really thought that I could go for the rest of my life without doing it. I started feeling pretty good about it to the point that I almost felt exempt. I do not know what the odds ...
We have been discussing of the relevancy of God's word. We saw how that sin is still a problem in our world just as it was when the Bible was penned. As long as sin remains, God's word is relevant.
