Written to a people who were being persecuted because of their Faith: The Book of Hebrews brings words of encouragement to Believers globally, who need as much encouragement at this time as they did then. The Hebrews were in danger of turning away from the Christian Faith, because of the persecution they were facing from […]

Your first point of reference when you talk about FAITH should be Hebrews Chapter Eleven. The book of Hebrews holds the famous, “Faith Hall of Fame,” (Hebrews 11:1-40). Here you have Abel, Enoch, Noah, Abraham, Sarah, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, Moses, Joshua, Rahab, Gideon… just to mention a few, both men and women, in remembrance of their Faith extraordinaire!

These are not faithful friends. A faithful friend will be more concerned about the condition of your soul, leading you to Christ, and not away from Christ.
