FIVE TRULY HORRIFYING MOMENTS FROM THE BIBLE. 

The Passion What was at first horrifying became glorifying for God through Jesus Christ at Calvary (Isaiah 53).

As for you, you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good, to bring it about that many people should be kept alive, as they are today(Gen 50:20). Bad things happen to good people just as good things happen to bad people. In this day and age what used to be deemed good […]
