I believe confederate history to be necessary in understanding our cultural differences in society todey. The simple fact is that I'm the south their is outrage over the army of northern Virginia battle flag being taken down by confederate sympathizers who are deemed "racist" by modern society who simply misunderstand their point of view. Thus the primary way to end this would be to gain understand to the youth through education...

The Protestant Doctrine of "Sola Scriptura" is unbiblical, unhistorical, and untenable

The Protestant Doctrine of "Sola Scriptura" is one that is ironically unbiblical, unhistorical, and therefore untenable.

Remember that for three years I constantly and tearfully warned each on...

Pascal's Wager is true.

Good evening, All members are invited to join in this debate between Old and New Music messages. You will the Con(against) in this debate. I want to first say that the new music that you hear on the radio such as Kevin Gates or Fetty Wap is bringing the wrong message towards future generations.
