Things done in secret lead to a profession of faith that Jesus was the Messiah to the Jewish people. Moeshe does the unthinkable. ... Absolutely Fascinating!

Billy Graham in Quotes

Billy Graham in Quotes

On 6/26 flaming-sword wrote: I have seen many books of late where there is such a weak proclamation of right and wrong, let alone the Gospel.
