Sin

John, Abortion is many things, but at its worst, it is a sin. My sins, your sins, and the sins of the entire world are what crucified Jesus Christ... ...and are the reason for this week -- the week that changed the world. Sin is not a popular…

DAY 37: From Columbine to 40 Days for Life

DAY 35: They hate this
