How Can We Glorify God with Our Time? – Christian Article

The way you spend your time says more about your spiritual condition than you may think.

A Protestant Look at Catholic Rome (Video) – Christian Article

It should be no great surprise that Rome is the most Catholic city in the world. (It is, after all, Roman Catholicism.) But that doesn’t mean there isn’t lots of history here that’s of particular interest to Protestants. In this video I take a Protestant look at Catholic Rome.
