2:303 – The Law And The Doctrine #faithbites #faithjourney Doctrine Before we start, I want to apologize if this offends anyone. This isn’t meant to do that but rather to open a dialogue of searching, questioning, and growing in faith. These also are my thoughts and don’t reflect the belief of my denomination or church.
