Will Man Displace God as Creator
Jesse M. Hendley
Romans 1:25. We want to think tonight about the subject "Will man displace God as Creator." You know the Bible is such a wonderful book. Some people make it an old-foggy book relegated to ancient times but not very up-to-date. I am going to prove to you tonight that the Bible is more up to date than the latest newspaper.

That's a ridiculous, crazy idea that has just emerged in this crazy world that we are living in today. If you think I am silly in saying that may I remind you that the Bible said that madness is i ...
