  • Who Needs Theology? Series

    Contributed by Thomas Clawser on Jan 28, 2017

    Knowledge is important, but insufficient. Man’s wisdom is folly compared to God’s. So, what good is knowledge if faith is all that we need?

  • Ashamed Of Jesus?

    Contributed by Sam Mccormick on Jul 9, 2017

    In 1765, Joseph Grigg (1720-1768) of England wrote the wonderful words of the song "Jesus and Shall It Ever Be," which proposes several answers to the question, "Ashamed of Jesus?" The answers are various ways of saying "I will never be ashamed of him!"
