    The Kingdom Doesn't Come Cheap From the very

    I am not a fan of Duck Dynasty.

    I have no hidden motive for going to bat for a man I have never met. All I know is what I’ve seen buzzing on my news feed all day and from what I can tell, it’s only further evidence of just how mad this world has truly become. I live in a country where it’s okay to be a...

    a doctrine favored by some groups, some of whom have some bizarre, even dangerous ideas, is, by far, the easiest to disprove. It teaches that Christ will come after the millennium. Post-millennialists believe that the church will progressively bring righteousness to the world...
