    One of the most famous miracles of Jesus is the only one recorded in all four gospels–the multiplication of the loaves and fishes.

    Parable of the Wheat and the Tares - the Church as a Hospital for Sinners

    Parable of the Wheat and the Tares - the Church as a Hospital for Sinners

    The parable of the wheat and the tares or weeds is Jesus’ response to those who want to cleanse the Christian community of the impure and imperfect.  The Church, in this world, is more a hospital for sinners than a club for saints.

A magnificent view of the Mediterranean is afforded by several places along the top of the ridge, especially from the northwestern tip or head of the ridge.

When The Church Was Young

Were this fascinating book read by a “few more people,” Protestantism would be decimated. What an appreciation D’Ambrosio gave me for the first several centuries of the Church’s history!

For those raising families in today’s society, you MUST listen to this!

Dr Italy is a terrific storyteller and presents some very profound truths in such practical and easy-to-understand concepts. I really enjoyed learning while listening to his words! I hope to take what I have l learned from his teachings and apply them in every aspect of my life!
