Scripture Depot - The Natural Man

10.27.18 | by Pastor Barry Fredericks

Scripture Depot - The Natural Man

Once we become a Christian we need to see where we were and where the unsaved people are now. Pastor Barry made this scriptural list to help you to see where you were, why you had the difficult time you did and what now you are to avoid. We also need to help others avoid these scriptural pitfalls.
