These are some of the questions we will attempt to answer from a biblical prospective tomorrow. These questions and issues have come out frequently in the history of the church and our nation. We should be knowledgeable and prepared to answer them with a biblical prospective when necessary. Please don’t forget your spot in Hebrews 3:7-4:13. We will return to this passage again. Continue to review it so that it stays fresh in your mind.
