  • The Successful Failure Series

    Contributed by Glenn Pease on Apr 6, 2021

    Peter was the greatest failure in his abusive power. And yet we see that he not only survives, but he does so quite successfully. He is able to stay on top as the leader of the 12. He does everything wrong, and still comes out a winner.

  • "Jesus, The Exclusive Savior”

    Contributed by Clarence Eisberg on Feb 24, 2021
