The Sinfulness of Sin

Nothing, I am convinced, will astonish us so much, when we awake in the resurrection day, as the view we shall have of sin and the retrospect we shall take of our own countless shortcomings and defects. Never till the hour when Christ comes the second time shall we fully realize the ‘sinfulness of sin’.

Redefining Marriage is Unbiblical

The fracas around the impending redefinition of marriage in Australia has been escalating at a great rate.
