Romans

We are cruising through Romans.
We are in Chapter 14.

The Elect doesn’t mean exactly what you think!
Sorry Calvin… the Bible … Paul… tweaks the Chosen, Israel, the Elect!

We must decide if we think Paul is saying
We do have the Power to Live Righteous…
or
If we don’t do what we want and do what we don’t want!

What in the World did Paul really teach about Women?

Hey… I love J Vernon McGee! I want to teach through the Bible too!

Come on… get on the Bible 1969 Tan Volkswagen Bug!
