Writing for One

I find this blog very interesting indeed. 🙂 The following is said in a way that I like very much:

People blinded by leaders presenting their opinions and preferences as biblical doctrine become prisoners to their churches. They tend to believe teachers without looking into the truths of the Bible for themselves.

Total score: __________________________________________

Thank you for coming to my lecture.

When I heard we were going to take a last-minute trip out of town, and I was promised some alone time in the hotel room, I decided the time was…
