What publications us at the present time within the West? these people who say we stick with Jesus of Nazareth element to Scripture as our advisor, yet what we think approximately Scripture and existence itself alterations every little thing. we want permission to query our ideals approximately our trust to determine if the map our songs are making a song is taking us anyplace we actually are looking to pass.
