Importance of Your Foundation – Part 2

I remember it well.  I had just developed a series of diagrams using various relationships between the sun, moon and earth to illustrate some of the truths found in passages of Scripture such as 1 John 1:5; Matthew 5:14, 16; John 15:5; and 1 John 2:15.  I had developed these diagrams having read Romans 1:20 […]

I entered school in the 50s. Since that time, a lot of changes have taken place in education and these changes have made a significant difference in the lives of children.
