The Christianization of War and Violence Pt. 3

This entry is part 3 of 5 in the series Christianization of war and violence

As you look out into the eternal vastness of outer space and contemplate the unique and unusual idea of—truth–to come to any definitive conclusion as to the reality and materiality of truth can seem as far away as a distant Nebula and as concrete as a massive cloud of gas. One primary area where truth […]
