The wiser way says, “Do not say, ‘I will recompense evil;’ Wait for the LORD, and He will save you” (Proverbs 20:22). The best way to treat an evil-doer is: “If …

QA: Does Grace Cancel Out All Sin?

QUESTION: Grace cancels out all sin, including wilful sin, right? - October, 2020

ANSWER: WRONG! God's grace does NOT cancel a person's sin NOR will it save on the Day of Judgment. Here's why: 1.

ANSWER:  Simply, preach the Word  (2 Timothy 4:2).  Don't be distracted  (1 Corinthians 2:1-2). ...
