Politics: Joe Carter provides seven reasons Rudy Giuliani is Unelectable. Here’s a good one: “Rudy is a philandering jerk — Giuliani began dating his third (and current) wife, Judith Nathan, while still married to his second wife, Donna Hanover.

    A Difference-Making Ministry for Any Christian

    The experience of preaching is very different from the front than from the back, when facing the congregation than when facing the preacher. The congregation faces one man who is doing his utmost to be engaging, to hold their attention, and to apply truths that will impact their hearts and transform their lives.
