Hello Brothers and Sisters in Christ at Redeemer. In the last couple of months I have submitted Courier articles on the Holy Estate of marriage.

Hello Brothers and Sisters in Christ. In the last Courier I presented an article encouraging you to be patient in your marriages as you face the inevitable difficulties that come with it.

Temptation and Testing

| February 18, 2015

Temptation There are two kinds of temptation: temptations for good and temptations for evil. God, indeed, tempts and tries His children.

As sin entered into the world, with it came Christian persecution. Cain killed his brother Able. Since then the prophets were persecuted and killed. Jesus, God’s own beloved Son was persecuted and murdered. Since His crucifixion those people that have believed in Him have been and will be persecuted. I came across this blog and […]
