Evil Emboldened

I was having breakfast this morning with my accountability partner and we were talking about world events, including the shooting in Las Vegas. My buddy made the comment that it seems as if evil is more prevalent today than he remembers in the past. What crossed my mind was this: “As the Christian church is […]
