The Double Love Commandment

The Double Love Commandment

How do you relate to the double love commandment? What kind of feelings does it arouse in you? When the Pharisees heard that he had silenced the Sadducees, they gathered together, 35 and one of them, a lawyer, asked him a question to test him. 36 “Teacher, which commandment in the law is the greatest?” 37 He said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the greatest and first…

Christianity Is Not About Being Good & Doing Good

Christianity Is Not About Being Good & Doing Good

Christianity is not about being good & doing good like too many people, even Christians, think. How did this happen? How did we end up to this? What has happened in churches if young Christians don’t know what Christianity is all about. Do you know?

The Case of Wild Grace
