One thought on “Biography

  1. I just listened to your interview on the Blaze. I enjoyed it very much, you certainly have some eye opening views about the Bible. I agree with much of what you said. I am a Mormon and “we believe the Bible to be the word of God as long as it is translated correctly”. (Our 13 articles of faith).
    I look forward on following more of what you have to say.
