Vows, Oaths, and Speaking the Truth in Love

By Joshua Spurlock How do people know that you’re trustworthy? Do you need to promise to do what you say? Or perhaps “solemnly swear”? Is a handshake necessary?

Be Zealous for the Promises of God

By Joshua Spurlock Did you ever know someone who just wouldn’t quit?
