  • "Not For The Nation Only"

    Contributed by Clark Tanner on Oct 8, 2010

    God often uses the utterings of evil men to announce His own purposes. They think they are in control but they are not.

    “Therefore the chief priests and the Pharisees convened a council, and were saying, “What are we doing? For this man is performing many signs. 48 “If we let Him go on like this, all men will believe in Him, and the Romans will come and take away both our place and our more

  • The Devil Of Dualism!

    Contributed by Roger Spackman on Jul 10, 2007

    Contributed by Greg Nance on Nov 5, 2009
    based on 4 ratings

    Unbelief is very stubborn. In fact, there are some who will simply not believe in Jesus, no matter what evidence is offered.

    Read entire chapter 11. What you believe about Jesus determines what you do with him. Two shopkeepers were bitter rivals. Their stores were directly across the street from each other, and they would spend each day keeping track of each other’s business. If one got a customer, he would smile in more

    Contributed by Jerry Cosper on Apr 17, 2012
