I submit to you that the Bible will stand the toughest test and the hardest scrutiny because it is indeed the Word of God. That’s why after 2000 years it is still the best-selling book in the world. No other book contains the plan of salvation. No other book can tell you how to get to heaven.

Sermon Series: Total Forgiveness
In our zeal to serve God, we may actually end up opposing him.
Sermon Series: Faces Around the Cross
