God's Kingdom Changes the Way We Think About

Our Holiness

The life of a believer, one who worships Jesus as King, requires the willingness to deliberately seek personal transformation.

  • Where did Paul's ideas come from?

    We know that nothing comes out of a vacuum—so Paul’s ideas must have come from somewhere. This question is complicated by the fact that while Paul’s writing shows a deep relationship with the teachings of Jesus, there are other ideas and issues he’s responding to as well...
