Pillars of Promises for the Child of God Geoffrey R. Kirkland Christ Fellowship Bible Church  (St Louis, MO) In times of deep dark despair, don’t listen to yourself & your doubts; rather, speak biblical truth &  anchor your trust in God’s promises!

The Blessed Gift & Duty of Fathers

The Blessed Gift & Duty of Godly Fathers Geoffrey R. Kirkland Godly fathers are gifts from the Lord. I thank the Lord for my father, a man of God, who early on for me modeled holiness, church involvement, integrity of character both inside and outside the home, and hard work. My father has taught me -- and still is teaching me -- much about faithfulness, endurance, perseverance, sobermindedness, and trust in the Lord. Godly fathers are blessed gifts to families and these fathers also have an unspeakably important duty from the Lord. I’ll just list four duties of godly fathers. Lead. Fathers must lead.

The Word of God places the sin of homosexuality alongside of many other sins that condemn sinners. We are all guilty. This isn't a matter of pointing fingers at *those* people caught up in this. Rather, the point is to speak Truth to believers and to equip them with God's Word so that they can res
