WHI-968 | Applying God’s Law

Is the Bible merely a manual of timeless ethics? If so, what do we do with the various civil and ceremonial laws from the Old Testament?

WHI-966 | Tactics (Part 2)

A friend tells you, “The Bible has a lot of nice stories but people take it too seriously because its really just a book written by men.” How do you respond?
