We look to the Bible, which is God's Word, for God's answer and find that neither of the two teachings above are correct. Continue Reading »

But true followers of Christ Jesus have a different attitude toward the Bible, that of Jesus, who regarded every word of the Scriptures as God's revealed truth. Continue Reading »
