December 11, 2018 - We live this day in a world filled with violence and hate.

You shall not bow down to them or serve them; for I the Lord your God am a jealous God," (Deuteronomy 5:7-9) This is the very first of the Ten Commandments of God, for without upholding this the first, there is no need for one to try and keep the rest.
