THE OLD TESTAMENT STILL MATTERS! Part 3 WARNINGS FROM SCRIPTURE Pastor Ladena Bough, Stockton MO

At the Independence Church we don’t do sermons on Sunday mornings, we simply study the Word of God. We also get into some very heavy discussions about Scripture and how it is impacting the world around us today. That is really what started me on this journey to get others looking at the warnings, etc., that are contained in the Old Testament.
