Just say the word: the centurion’s great faith

Since Jesus was God in the flesh, it would take something of ginormous significance to cause him to marvel. But that's exactly what the centurion with the sick servant did, according to Matthew 8:10 and Luke 7:9.

They question God’s word to stop your knowledge, comfort, and hope

The truth of God's word is inseparably fused to our learning (knowledge), our comfort in the Holy Spirit, and our hope in Christ.

It’s best to be thankful for your God-given birth gender

Unbelievers are pushing the false idea of "transgenderism" just about everywhere you turn these days while playing pretend and attempting to force others to play pretend as if one can really change genders.
