Defiance Has Limits – How Far Will God Let Us Push It?

by David M. Carollo – A People in Defiance Once Again Reading and hearing biblical stories growing up Catholic, I would look at people such as those in Sodom and Gomorrah as well as the masses in the time of Noah and think of them as “they” – the poor people who chose evil and […]
