Is God and man the same species?

Late last night, I was looking at Isaiah 31. Isaiah 31:3 is a thunderclap to God’s people to not trust in men.  And just thinking about this verse, I know why.  The contrasts between God and men is unfathomable. On Sundays, I have had the privilege to teach an energetic group of 4th – 6th […]
