Fearing God

Other than Jesus, the wisest man who ever lived, Solomon, came to this conclusion: “The conclusion, when all has been heard, is: fear God and keep His commandments, because this applies to every person.  For God will bring every act to judgment, everything which is hidden, whether it is good or evil.”    Eccl 12:13-14 We […]
