The Blunted Spear The Folly of Misguided Ministry Methods by Wes Schoel

I’ve fought a lot of spiritual battles in my life. Sometimes I’ve fought those battles while I was alone. But usually, I fought those battles with several or even many believers standing with me.

These came because God’s people stood in...

My Journey Leaving Organized Religion by Mike Donahoe

My history with organized religion began back when I was just a little boy. My parents were active members of their church and once I was born, they started taking me and I’ve been a part of the organized church basically since that time. I was saved in the church when I was 10 years old during Vacation Bible School.
