WELCOME TO GARRISON CHURCH OF GOD
As Christians we are often told that we are following fables. Many view our culture as post-Christian. Popular atheists have claimed that Christians are self-deceived and gullible. In their view the resurrection is a myth that only foolish people would believe. Peter, however, facing death could have easily avoided execution by denying the truth of the gospel, yet he maintained the truth of the gospel. Clearly Peter didn’t believe he was following a myth.
Pastor Alan will share a video sermonette for today on the Garrison Church of God Facebook page and YouTube channel: Please use “Garrison Church of God” in the search to get to this page.
