let him speak for himself and tend to his. We always
want to give the benefit of the doubt. The liberals
would love to silence conservative voices and take
every opportunity they could.
I want to add one matter of prayer that I think
we ought to pray about. We have in our fellowship some
wonderful Christians who are of Arabic origin. They
are Arab believers. Some wo ...
