We cannot say it too strongly: there is no salvation without full and final atonement for sin.
Contra our narcissistic culture, you find yourself when you find God.
We cannot miss that what Bill Nye and his panel see as a cancer the Scripture sees as a blessing. Children are a gift from the Lord
It is only, however, when we presuppose that God is the foundation of truth that we can truly understand the God-made world.
So, we preach the old message once more: Be reconciled to God. Christ is risen.
So: pursue faithfulness, not success. Do your duty. And by all means, stay at your posts.
