These sources are only within 100-150 years of Jesus’s crucifixion … Continue reading Jesus Outside of the Bible?
It’s my prayer that learning about God’s immutability (unchanging nature) will encourage you immensely!

To say that it is important … Continue reading “What are the Attributes of God?” by GotQuestions
