Yesterday afternoon we visited the Rodeo Drive of the area — Portofino. All we could afford was a cup of Cafe Latte, which to be honest was about as good as they can be made. Dinner last night in Camogli […]

The Destiny of Seekers

You can’t find one final judgment scene in the Bible that is not a judgment by works. Salvation, we are told often, is not by works, but final judgment sure is. Here are Paul’s words, and we could back them […]
