Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com)  One thing I like about the Bible is that it is self-explanatory.  I do not understand why people say that the Word of God is so confusing.  Whatever God wants you to know, He explains it to you right there in the Word, just as simple.  Every time I go to the Word, it lays itself out, line upon line, precept upon precept.  If... [Read more...]
