“From Jerusalem to the Uttermost Parts of the Earth” – Have we Misunderstood Acts 1:8?
A missionary comes to your church to speak, and you absentmindedly turn to Matt 28:18 or Acts 1:8.

Is the devil out to get you?
A friend from Costa Rica writes in: I seem to be everywhere running into people who are debating different aspects of spiritual warfare.
