5 Things You Think are in the Bible That Really Aren’t

Part of me really hates doing blogs about the Bible.  I have friends who are not Christians and I know I’m leaving them on the side of the road on these.

I found two specifically called “great gifts for brothers in law”.  One had nothing on it under $100.  Who is spending… Read more »
