    What exactly is agape, or "love" as it is translated? The NT tells us: Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. We read such passages and tend to assume at once that "love" means what it does to us in modern times -- in this case, a mushy sentimentality that never says a harsh...

    Why Do Children Lose Their Trust In The Bible?

    CMI speakers get to conduct a variety of ministry, including churches, public meetings, prisons, universities, radio, etc. A large part of the CMI ministry that is underwritten by ordinary folk like you is to Christian (and public, when invited) schools. While I’m pleased that...
