Because our human nature is sinful, it should come as no surprise when we discover the default setting for most who hear the gospel is to reject it. Isn't that why Christ said broad is the way leading to destruction and many go that way (Matthew 7:13)? When our default setting is to sinfully reject... Continue Reading →
