Convictions – Part 2 of 2

Convictions – Part 1 of 2

Introduction: Over the past week or so I have been involved in a conversation related to Halloween. One of the participants said this, “There are various reasons for not participating, as stated, and we all need to choose, with our spouses, to follow those convictions that GOD has placed in us.

For a while I have been desiring certain features in a Bible, such as, Greek and Hebrew along with a solid English translation; perhaps with or without Chapter and Verse divisions; maybe it would have cross references; a single column[Continue Reading...]
