4 More Half-Truths Many Christians Believe (#13-16)


  1. I'm struggling with not only some of the shows I watch, but also with a guy who has asked to take me out. What's messed up is I've told him I cannot go further than "friendship" I thought he got the hint, but not it seems as if he didn't really hear me. This time walking with the Lord I want to honor him. I don't want to keep going around the same mountain. I know this is a test. I seem to be going through many of the same ones. For the last 2 years I've been more serious about following & honoring the Lord than ever. Please keep me in prayer. I can do the right thing.

    1. Keep on that track, Alicia. God will give you strength as you press in to Him.
