LIKE CHRISTIANITY, LIKE MARRIAGE Christianity is a little like a… Read More Christian Musings #54
Matthew 24:10: “Then many will fall away and betray one another and hate one another.” Matthew 24:12: “Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold–“ This is already happening in the world today.
