April 26, Jesus can take away your badness!

I love the story Colson tells of Randy Nabors who was a Prison Fellowship instructor and working in an in-prison seminar in a southern penitentiary.  One night Randy was working in his room when a state-employed psychiatrist came to his room.  Colson said, “Soon the frustrated doctor was describing his day’s cases.  ‘I’ll tell you, […]

July 29, A Lesson from Fabio on Sanctification

Recently I was watching TV and heard Fabio call out Isaiah Mustafa to determine the real Old Spice Guy. I will be the first to admit that I am not a fan of Fabio, but I have seen the Mustafa commercials and thought they were funny.  Today I read an article about the competition (yes […]
