Jesus, the Propitiation of God’s Wrath – “God propitiates his own wrath. Know anybody else like that? Will China pay off the US debt?

Science and St. Helen’s – “St Helen’s Bishopsgate have produced a series of short videos on Science and the Christian named ‘Science – A personal view’. Various scientists from their congregation address common questions and misconceptions outsiders have regarding the gospel.”

God desires to exercise mercy as much as you desire to feel it.

—Thomas Manton
