Bible in the Light

It’s getting harder to be express beliefs in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.

We live in a world that allows us the most extreme level of communication ever. It’s possible for anyone with a computer and an internet access to have a voice that can reach other people. As a result, the differing opinions of Christian leaders can clash more easily. On one level, this is a good thing, but it can also cause strife between believers that erupts in a public manner.

Twitter Being Dumb

Angry Twitter
