Scriptures

This page contains links to articles that deal with particular Scriptures. For example, the first section will take you to articles we have published that deal with specific passages of Scripture that are very often twisted and perverted by both abusers and others who cling to false interpretations and applications of these passages. The second section, Sermons, does the same with sermons I have preached addressing the same issue.
