Day 67 – Romans 11:22-24 – Will backsliders go to heaven? – Part 1

Consider therefore the kindness and sternness of God; sternness to those who fell, but kindness to you, provided that you continue in his kindness.  Otherwise, you will also be cut off.  And if they do not persist in unbelief, they will be grafted in, for God is able to graft them in again.  After all, […]

Day 66 – (Romans 11:18-21) -Who are the Children of Abraham?
