Reading:  Mark 5:1-17, 7:24-37

When we read the how Jesus went to the land of the Garasenes, many things stand out. There is the fact this encounter took place in a graveyard, that the Demons were named Legion, that these demons went into pigs, and killed the entire herd of pigs, and that when they saw the formerly demon possessed man healed and in his right mind, they were afraid and asked Jesus to leave. 1,197 more words

Empty Words Won't Save You

“Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God.” (I John 4:15)

Despite the apparent simplicity of this verse, one should be careful not to take it in a woodenly literal fashion, as a minimalist means of salvation: just confess that Jesus is the Son of God, with no commitment of your life to Him, and you will be saved. 320 more words
