When I was listening to the HAVEN Today broadcast with Charles Morris that aired on April 25th I heard something new.  There are some people that think Shakespeare may have influenced the King James translation.  Here is why.   Open your KJV to Psalm 46.  Shakespeare was 46 years old when the ...

John argues that ...

"Without a right understanding of origins there is no way to comprehend ourselves or understand our humanity ... If we cannot believe what Genesis says about origin we are lost as to our purpose and our destiny."
