Text: Exodus 4:1-5 (12/2017) “And Moses answered and said, But, behold, they will not believe me, nor hearken unto my voice: for they will say, The LORD hath not appeared unto thee. And the LORD said unto him, What is that in thine hand? And he said, A rod. And he said, Cast it on […]

Preface . Prior to addressing the subject of Biblical Faith from an Orthodox Christian Frame of Reference, there are two areas that need to be considered, that of motivation and perspective. . Motivation Concerning motivation; we should keep in mind the difference between simply reading God’s Word and that of adequately studying God’s Word.
