The Sin of Dominionists

Just as Moses was delayed from coming back down the mountain, the people fell back into the idolatry they were just delivered from in Egypt (Exodus 32)…After all they did not know how long he would be on the mountain, 40 days seemed like an eternity and they lost patience. Likewise in the last days […]

Tossed About Because of the Heresies and False Doctrines
