WHAT BABYLON IS NOT
At this point, we need to spend some time further defining spiritual Babylon-the "great city" and the "great harlot." With zeal, we must avoid a view of Babylon that makes us sectarian, or that provokes us...

THE PLUMBLINE OF GOD’S WORD
Let two or three prophets speak, and let the others judge. 1 Cor 14:29 NKJV
How do we decide what is right or wrong, good or evil, truth or error? Is truth subjective, in other words as being defined by the feelings or temperament of the subject or the persons thinking? Or is it objective, meaning to be a fixed standard apart from the whims or temperament of anyone? If right or wrong, good...
