From the Preacher’s Pen: The Way I See It

ImageIn the Reader’s Digest the other day I found a list of 10 of the most annoying phrases that people use Phrases like “fairly unique” (either it is unique or it is not); and “at this point in time” (an overused expression that I must confess I have used from time to time).

The only just reason to defend a position or practice is because God sees it that way! Remember the song, “The Bible tells me so. . .”
