Because of Sin

RR-November 16, 2016     Sin is the most hideous act that anybody could commit in the sight of God, and God sees all, and sin can also be called universal treason against all of creation. We read in 1 John 3:4, “Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of…
