With the completion of extensive research conducted at the highest levels of professional standards, it’s now time to reveal the results to a […]

For Smart Guys Like Me

1 Corinthians 1:18 For the word of the cross is folly to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. 19 For it is written, “I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and the discernment of the discerning I will thwart.” 20 Where is the […]
