Your past

Let’s take a step back. To Paul’s BC (before Christ) days. Paul was a fanatical Jew who blindly persecuted the church of that time and who defended it with everything he had.

Just do it!

Paul was a very interesting character. He was one of those people who lived at full speed. When he was a soldier, he took his job very seriously and left no stone unturned to find and imprison Christians. The same was true of his life after he repented. He gave his all to do everything […]
