By guest blogger Bobbie Sawyer: “Since therefore, brethren, we have confidence to enter the holy place by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way which He inaugurated for us through the veil, that is, His flesh, and since we have a great priest over the house of God, let us draw near […]

How Confusion Breeds Chrislam

For years, so-called “Insider Movement” groups have promoted the idea that it is not necessary for people in other faiths to convert to Christianity.
