Not a Strategy, the Cornerstone.

August 11, 2011

This past Sunday there was a great article about Evangelicals in the paper. Being one myself it caught my eye and I read it with great interest. You can read it here.

A short manifesto on belief in times of fake-rapture.

At worst it is a unsafe incubator of hate, distrust, scandal and secrets, […]
