Certification of Bible and Theology

"Such things were written in the Scriptures long ago to teach us. And the Scriptures give us hope and encouragement as we wait patiently for God’s promises to be fulfilled."
— Romans 15:4
Practical problems have theological answers. So the question is not whether or not you’re going to be a theologian, but what kind of theologian you’re going to be.

I do not regret the day I decided to study theology with axx, the lessons are beyond any reasonable doubt an antidote to heresy and misinterpretion of scriptures.
