“For the Perfecting of the Saints”
Ephesians tells us to “put on the armor of God”; how do we integrate the principles of truth, righteousness, preparedness, faith, salvation, and the Spirit into our life? This eloquent work also urges us to fill our lives with goodness so that we can use our time well and become our best selves. The teaching on husbands and wives requires challenging however.
P.S. does it matter if the author lies?
