I am pretty sure I have written about Sola Scriptura (“by scripture alone”) before. I believe it was in the context of the Seventh Day (Sabbath) being the true Sabbath. I’m still not 100% sure where I stand on the whole “day of worship” and “Sabbath” issue – but that’s not what this post is

Excerpts from Romans 7:21 – 8:16 It seems to be a fact of life that when I want to do what is right, I inevitably do what is wrong. I love God’s law with all my heart. But there is another law at work within me that is at war with my mind. This law

I get it. The Good News. I think I’m finally getting it. Romans 5:1-11 (NLT) Faith Brings Joy 1 Therefore, since we have been made right in God’s sight by faith, we have peace with God because of what Jesus Christ our Lord has done for us. 2 Because of our faith, Christ has brought

I’m reading Galatians right now and want to just note here some verses that impacted me and that I really need to “digest”. And yet we know that we become right with God, not by doing what the law commands, but by faith in Jesus Christ. So we have believed in Christ Jesus, that we
