Worshiping Celebrity Christian Speakers
There is an aspect of modern Christianity which has in recent years grown to the point of becoming quite unattractive. I am referring to the rising trend of ‘celebrity worship’ among followers of Christ. Celebrity ministers being worshiped instead of Jesus Christ.

Destroy!) trying to turn us aside to myths and fables promoted as ‘sound doctrine’? He obsessively wants to rob us any way he can. Continue reading “The Benefit of Embracing Truth”
