LESSON THREE INTERCESSION
LOVE IS "WAR"
History tells us that for hundreds, even thousands of years, mankind
has been plagued with a warring nature. Neighbor has risen against
neighbor, country against country, and nation against nation. A war
may be fought for a "cause" so worthy as the protection of home
