But shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness,
In a salt land which is not inhabited.

“Blessed is…

Different Kinds of Faith In Christ

Which is easier, to say, ‘Your sins are forgiven you,’ or to say, ‘Rise up and walk’?
~ Jesus of Nazareth (Luke 5:23 NKJV)


Well, which is it?

I say it is easier to say "Your sins are forgiven you."
