If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1:9 Notice anything interesting in the verse above?  It doesn’t say He is faithful and merciful, it says He is faithful and just.  How can a just God forgive us of […]

I know Christmas is over and we bloggers should be moving on to posts regarding the coming new year, but I guess I am feeling the need to cast one more stone behind me.  My wife and I don’t do the “Santa Claus” thing with our kids and we have recently heard of several local […]
