The Secret Battle of Ideas About God with Dr. Jeff Myers

A virus has been spreading across America. Chances are you’ve already been infected without even realizing it.

Coexist Biblical Comand

Along with my regular blog here at seanmcdowell.org, I am now featuring occasional guest posts from some students in the Biola M.A. in Christian Apologetics that I personally had the privilege of teaching. This post is from my friend Tim Stratton, who has an excellent and growing ministry of his own. I simply asked him to write anything on his heart and mind. Check out his ministry and enjoy this post!
