Free To Say We’ve Sinned – “When you hide your sin, pretending to be a perfect Christian, you’re actually telling the world that God is a liar.

Banner of Truth – Banner of the Truth has a big Christmas sale going on where they’ve discounted some great books.

What That Empty Seat Says – “We’ve all done it. We shuffle down a row of chairs and, just before we arrive at a person, we stop one chair short. We leave an empty seat between us and the other person, secretly hoping an usher won’t ask us to ‘scoot in.’ What does that empty seat say?

Machen
