DIY Glory Shine

Do it yourself; don’t trust outsiders. This is the watchword for our time. If you need to do a certain thing, make darned sure you cannot do it before you contract it out. Even if it’s actually cheaper and better … Continue reading

Teachings of Jesus — John 5:17-47

The Nation of Israel was not a nation of laws, but of direct divine rule. Neither God nor Moses legislated; the Covenant was not fixed. It was merely the written expression of the Sovereign’s will, a revelation of His divine … Continue reading
