"Study to shew thyself approved unto God,
a workman that needeth not to be ashamed,

2 Timothy 2:15 KJV

The lesson on January 15, 2017 was part 2 of "The U, V and W of Right Division". This lesson looks at the beliefs of Preterism in relation to AD 70 and the nation of Israel.

Every month I promise myself that I will just write about good things, try not to be controversial and be positive like the popular preachers are. Something always jars me back to reality and the seriousness of God’s calling. Five years ago doctors diagnosed me with a rapid growing lung cancer and gave me a year to live.

I get to serve as a jail chaplain and a police/fire chaplain.
