I don't particularly like doing “word studies” of the Bible. I do not know Hebrew or Greek, and anyone who claims they do can simply tell me I'm wrong and that I do not understand the language.

Enjoy! ------------------------------------------------------------ But, it doesn't matter what CARM … Continue reading Some Fun Re-Wording a CARM Article

Part II
