Divine Revelation? Wisdom? Intuition?

The good folks at The Domain for Truth have let me post on their blog again. This post actually got some comments for discussion.

I’m Not Ashamed

How to be Good

Be content with God’s goodness toward you and be thankful for the abundance as it is not owed to you. 1 Timothy 6:6–8 (NASB95) 6 But godliness actually is a means of great gain when accompanied by contentment. 7 For we have brought nothing into the world, so we cannot take anything out of it […]
