Part 7: Holiness and the Challenge of Scripture
Series: Life, Liberty And The Pursuit Of Holiness
Stuart Briscoe
John 17:6-19

Guy King wrote, "In such an age as this, when there is abroad so much loose thinking, lax living, and lopsided teaching, few things are so important as that Christians should be men and women of the Bible-stayed on it, and steeped in it." That was almost 50 years ago, but Jesus and Paul said similar things almost two millennia ago.
