Proverbs 12:17 - He who speaks truth tells what is right, But a false witness, deceit.
Words to Ponder
You cannot vanquish a Calvinist. You may think you can, but you cannot. The stones of the great doctrines so fit into each other, that the more pressure there is applied to remove them the more strenuously do they adhere. And you may mark, that you cannot receive one of these doctrines without believing all. - Charles H. Spurgeon (1834-92)
