Questions for the S.E. Idaho neighbor . . .

Hebrews 7 is a very theological, rich chapter  . . .  a lot of food for thought.  Read it, friends. 1.  Prophet, Priest, Seer – How come it isn’t Prophet, Priest, King? 2.  Are you without father, without mother, without genealogy?  Then who is? 3.  If you are at the elevated status of a preexistent […]

Tonight, at Grace Baptist Church in Salt Lake City, I listened to a sermon, a theological overview, and an exhortation by Dr. Kevin Bauder on the issue of biblical inerrancy.
