I deny a Trinity of separate persons in the godhead…. Does thou in good earnest think they [Catholicism] were one in judgment with Sabellius, who only rejected the imaginary personality of those times; who at the same instant owned and confessed to the Eternity and godhead of Christ Jesus our Lord. It is manifest, then that though I may deny the Trinity of separate persons in one godhead, yet I do not consequentially deny the Deity of Jesus Christ.
William Penn (October 14, 1644 – July 30, 1718) was an early …

The following quotations are excerpted from a book published in 1834 and written by
Joshua Leonard, a Presbyterian minister who was a member of the Presbytery in Cortland, New

Jakes responds to Christianity Today article, “Apologetics Journal Criticizes Jakes.”
By Bishop T. D. Jakes

A Fresh Glimpse of God’s Glory
There comes a time in every life in which we need a fresh vision of God.  Our walk with God can become stale and routine.  We may begin to doubt if the continual struggle against sin and self is worth it.  We may become so caught up in working for God that we forget the importance of our relationship to God.
The prophet Isaiah had such a need.  The familiar comfort of having King Uzziah on the Throne had been taken from him.  In the year …
