  • Real faith is something you do

    Fifty million Americans claim “I am born again,” according to a poll by George Gallup.

    “But you don’t see anything in their lifestyle,” Gallup said.

  • The Bible placed hefty penalties on adulterers

    Exodus 20:14 says, “Do not commit adultery.”

    The command of God is about as specific as a command can get. He does not simply suggest to us that we should not do it; he demands it.

    The reason that adultery is such a serious sin is that marriage is a picture of the relationship between God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.
