5 Key Connections: Luther, Superman, and more

October 31, 2019

Here are 5 key passages from recent Christian content around the web, including one on how reading Luther can encourage today’s Christians, and another on why Superman can’t share the gospel.

Luther Taught Me to Have Faith Again Today (Lianna Davis, Unlocking the Bible)

God knows I am not perfect; I am not to approach Him as if I were. He knows I am not made to stand independently of Christ; I am never to approach Him as if I could. I come before the Father in Christ with faith—yesterday, today, and until faith becomes sight.
