What is the Church to do_

It seems so ordinary. Get in your car. Gather with a big group. Sing some songs. Listen to someone talk. Spend time with other people. Week after week after week. Why is gathering as a church so important? The reason it is important is because we all are sinners who deserve God's punishment but in His grace this God sent His own Son into the world to die in our place t...

But, name the biblical truth, you say it, and people will attack it, and they will attack you. For some of us, that's difficult. It is easy to start to worry about what people thin...
