How Jesus' Views on Marriage Proves Yahweh's Laws are NOT Absolute OR Jesus is Mistaken

Posted on May 17, 2013 at 10:00am 3 Comments

Hello, hope I can read your books one day, there should be more books on that subject. Religion still has somewhat untouchable status in the world and that should change.
