That’s why when a child of one…

Are the King’s Expectations Too High?

Many in this country don’t think they are that bad. They might say they are just fine. I guess that may be true if you don’t believe in absolute truth. What is right for you doesn’t mean it is right for me – especially when it comes to spiritual truth. If there are no standards…
