Scripture Alone

We began our series on the Five Solas of the Reformation on Sunday. We started with Scripture Alone from 2 Timothy 3:10 – 4:5.

But, what does it look like if we are to strive together or partner together for the Gospel’s advancement? I suggested that Philippians 1 reveals four ways to assess
