All neighbors are included. (pg. 202-203, Conservation and Local Economy)"

Author: Wendell Berry

Today's Quote

The doctrines of original sin, election, and effectual calling, final perseverance, and all those great truths which are called Calvinism – though Calvin was not the author of them, but simply an able writer and preacher upon the subject – are, I believe, the essential doctrines of the gospel that is in Jesus Christ. Now, I do not ask you whether you believe all this – it is possible you may not; but I believe you will before you enter heaven."
Author: Charles H. Spurgeon
