I was in my philosophy class the other day. It was missions week, and numerous different camp directors had flocked to the campus of Bob Jones University to pitch their camps to countless starry-eyed college kids willing to commit to another three months without sleep. Our teacher invited one of these camp directors to speak […]

It seems like, no matter the time, there’s always some other MORE PRESSING MATTER that we could be attending to rather than doing devotions. But don’t allow the fact that you […]
