  • What do you remember about the first Apostle, Andrew?
    Without some research, I personally can’t think of much about Andrew. He is one of the lesser known Apostles, and mentioned only briefly in the Bible.
    However, his message goes deep. John 1: 41, “The first thing Andrew did (after he had met Christ) was to find his brother Simon and tell him we have found the Messiah.”
    Then, in John 6:8-9, Andrew introduces the boy with five small loaves and two small fish to Jesus who then fed 5,000.

  • Does a person who claims to be a Christian have to attend a church?
    I have encountered numerous people who say they don’t believe in organized religion or that they have “church time” alone at home. I do not buy into this line of thinking, but let’s remove my opinion and consult with the inspired word of God.
