Love People but Judge Their Ideas

by Karla Perry All people are equal, but all ideas are not. If we treat ideas the way we are to treat people we will harm people. Truth is not indigenous to people, it is revealed from God. When God brought the Hebrew people group out of Egypt to make them a nation, they did…

The Mind Of A Nation

by Karla Perry Our long-term societal memory has become impaired. We are restricted to the constraints of a short-term memory. The edifices of culture are thought to be humanity as usual.

God’s Eye View of Nations

by Karla Perry Theology undergirds all of life. It is not something just for theologians, pastors, and Bible school students.
