Excerpt

ho presents that which Christ has commanded; should he preach otherwise, he is not a messenger of Christ, and therefore should not be listened to. But if he does this, it is just as important as though you heard Christ himself present.

To the strangers scattered abroad. This epistle was written to lands which were formerly Christian but are now subject to the Turk, yet it is possible some Christians might be found there even at this day. Pontus is a large, broad region, lying on the sea. Capadocia is in the same neighborhood, and borders on it. Galatia lies back of them. Asia and Bithynia border on the sea--extending eastward--and are extensive regions. Paul also preached in Galatia, and in Asia; whether in Bithynia also, I do not know. In the other two he did not preach. Strangers are such as we call foreigners. He names them so because they were Gentiles; and it is a thing to surprise us, that St. Peter, inasmuch as he was an Apostle to the Jews, should still write to the Gentiles.

Author of the Day

C.A. Huggins
C.A. Huggins has always been a big fan of the sci-fi, horror and post-apocalyptic genres but always wanted to create his own universe with a different take on your typical heroes and villains. He did exactly that in Scattered Screams. As our author of the day, he chats about familial relationships and why they are so important in this book and explains why he added pack attack coyotes to the mix.
