FORGET NONE OF HIS BENEFITS volume 16, number 41, October 12, 2017 “You shall not lie with a man as one lies with a female; it is an abomination, Leviticus 18:22. . .

Characteristics of True Faith, Pt 2 The next characteristic of true faith is that it stands on the promises of God, trusting in the promises.

Am I a real Christian? Pt 2 But there is something more. God’s Holy Spirit must inwardly deal with our minds as we consider these things, and our affections as we respond to the wonder of being sure that we have been saved by the grace of God, so that there can be occasional eruptions of joy inexpressible that are created by the Spirit of God, assuring us even on our worst days that we are real Christians behaving as we do.
