The Single Greatest Spiritual Truth

What Is the Single Greatest Spiritual Truth You Have Ever Learned? I got asked that question today and, after thinking for a moment, I suppose I would have to answer like this: “As soon as you are disposed to being […]

On the Pathway…But, to Where?

posted by smcswain

On the Pathway…But, To Where? It’s today’s buzzword, isn’t it? Pathway…Journey…People speak quite frequently these days about being on the path…or, on the journey. But, to where? For some Christians, it is a journey to heaven. Really? Is that the […]
