Genesis 2:17 (MEV): but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat from it you will surely die." When you read that verse, what comes to mind? I offer, most who read the verse won't really take it at what is written. …

In Dependence Day

I have been giving some thought to the significance of this day. In the United States, 4 July is the day we commemorate independence from the tyranny of the crown. One of the major themes of the day is freedom! It is in that light, we ought to point this day to Jesus. Acts 17:22–31 …
