What is crazy is that people are STILL asking this question! In balance, it’s also healthy that people are asking this question. I believe at the heart of most Christians is a desire to please God – and on the other side of the coin, there are others who use […]
But truly – the mission of Christ, his Apostles, early disciples, and plan for the entirety of the New Testament Church was the feeding of the body and soul! The Work of the Church was to be in charity, in love, and in bringing the hope of the life to come while supporting the one we are in!
