Romans 8:29-30 gives us that order. “For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.

Concern for the Young People

Brummel’s review of the Life and Mission of William Carey by Timothy George in the June/1994 issue of the Beacon Lights.             Mr. Brummel has failed to show the errors of the Baptist religion.
