Kindness And Sternness

KINDNESS AND STERNNESS “Consider therefore the kindness and sternness of God; sternness to those who fell, but kindness to you, provided that you continue in His kindness.

Is God Finished With Israel?

IS GOD FINISHED WITH ISRAEL? “I ask then: Did God reject His people? By no means! I am an Israelite myself, a descendant of Abraham, from the tribe of Benjamin.

Faith Comes By Hearing

FAITH COMES BY HEARING “How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard?

A Futile Objection

A FUTILE OBJECTION “One of you will say to me: ‘Then why does God still blame us?

It’s A Mystery!

IT’S A MYSTERY! “What, then, shall we say? Is God unjust? Not at all!
