“Do all the work necessary until you can articulate the views of your opponent with such strength that he says, ‘I couldn’t have said it better myself.’”
Christians have had their share of social media successes in over the past few years, many of them related to identifying theological error and defending theological truth.

Terrorism is something that affects all of us … even our children. It’s a tragic part of the world they are growing up in. Our immediate instinct is to shield our children from what’s going on around them … to keep them from knowing about the danger that lurks in today’s world.
While we may wish we didn’t have to talk about terrorist acts with our innocent kids, it’s a necessity.
Due to the world we live in and the nonstop news cycle, we must develop the tools…Continue

Suffered martyrdom in Ethiopia, Killed by a sword wound.
2. Mark (not an apostle, but one of the first missionaries)
Died in Alexandria, Egypt, after being dragged by Horses through the streets until he was dead.
Let every plant that my Father has not planted be rooted out in the name of Jesus.
I lay the axe to the root of every evil tree in my life.
Let every ungodly generational taproot be cut and pulled out of my bloodline in the name of Jesus.

Let Your holy fire burn up every ungodly root in the name of Jesus (Mal. 4:1).
