Word for the week

Should churches have stringent requirements for membership? The New Testament does not appear to require much. Say you believe in Jesus and you’re in.
When the people were gathered at the foot of Mount Sinai, Moses gave them the word of God. “He took the book of the covenant and read it in the hearing of the people” (Exodus 24:7).
