The Convenience of Unbelief

Stories abound about confrontations between Christians and unbelievers. The most common setting for these accounts is the university campus. Usually, an atheist professor is presented as taunting young believers in class. That scenario of young learners and authoritarian instructors conjures up deep emotions among the saints.

ShepherdCalls_WPNo doubt, some of those stories are true; but I suspect many of them are fiction, products of fearful faithful who want desperately for

Whose Counsel?

by Pastor Steve Ellison
