When I First Saw Jesus

When I First Saw Jesus

The first person I ever remember living a life in such a way that drew me to Jesus was a woman named Naomi Hunke.  She was a Sunday School teacher at White Oak Hills Baptist Church in Stone Mountain, GA, and I was one of her lost, arrogant, disinterested students.  I...

Something About Us

This is a collection of the many questions I have struggled with and the answers I have found regarding the relationship between authentic faith in Christ and much of what is portrayed today as Biblical Christianity.  Especially with the coming darkness looming over all of us, including the church.
