God Starts the Bidding at Infinity

No Final Right to Privacy

posted by Mark Herringshaw

Privacy is an illusion. Psalm 139:7-12  7 I can never escape from your Spirit!      I can never get away from your presence! 8 If I go up to heaven, you are there;      if I go down to the grave, you are there. 9 If […]

If you say, “The Lord is my refuge,” and you make the Most High your dwelling, no harm will overtake you, no disaster will come near your tent. Psalm 91:9,10 With the convenience of instantaneous news from all around the world at our fingertips 24 hours a day comes the ever increasing ten
