Character assassination of God

By Dave Henning / August 31, 2023

“Sin always begins with the character assassination of God.  We believe that God has put us in a world of delights but has determined that he will not give them to us if we obey him.  This is the lie of the serpent. . . .  One of the main reasons that we trust God […]

Not merely holy nor merely loving

By Dave Henning / March 9, 2023
