If people understood what sin in and how it is an offense to our holy GOD they would know what it is they need to be saved from. For the child of GOD, it is necessary to understand that Satan is a defeated foe -- with only as much authority in the believer's life as is freely granted. Sin breaks GOD's heart - and as a result, should also break the heart of the believer. These studies are designed to build us up in our most holy faith. Lord willing, we will continue this study of the great epistle of First John, a short, five-chapter book of the Bible that is packed full of some of the most extraordinary teaching concerning the Gospel and the doctrines of Christianity. I would heartily invite everyone to join me as we begin this journey which will surely bless your heart and your life. This study is based on the book, "God's Truth Made Simple" written by Mrs. Paul Friederichsen, written in 1966. The book is now out-of-print and is posted in order to preserve it in an on-line form.
