The name of the LORD is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and are safe. -Proverbs 18:10 I had a great fear of the dark as a child. That isn't unusual for children of course, but my fear seemed, at least to me, particularly acute. I got a fair amount of ribbing from some older brothers, but...

For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but wanting to have their ears tickled, they will accumulate for themselves teachers in accordance to their own desires... -2 Timothy 4:3 The word of God and the proclamation of that word is an offense in our day. As we draw...
