                                               While subtle lies they are dangerous lies.                                                                                                     We are reminded in I Peter 3:15                                                                             to always be ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account                                                                        for the hope that is in you…                                                                                                                 that is the hope of Christ Jesus alone.

                                                                          Not in us…

He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation.  For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities-all things have been created through Him and for Him.
