Alexanderism – Continuing the Journey v.1.4

People who study the Bible often make a common and critical mistake. They read the text through the social and religious lenses of today.

Alexanderism – Time and God v.1.3

In the last installment of Alexanderism, I wrote, "The fact that God chooses to adapt rather than put an end to the whole thing is pretty great news.

Those who have been shone the light of Christ devote themselves to rescusing others trapped in the darkness, pulling them from …
