A Daily Study in the Scriptures with Pastor Ray Viola

Weekdays at 6:30 PM on WZXV - The Word

The Shoulders Of Jesus

Legalism places the burden of responsibility upon the shoulders of men. God never intended that we carry this heavy weight around. The government of God is to be placed upon the shoulders of Jesus Christ. This was beautifully typified in the Old Testament picture of...

The Corinthian Test

The Church of Corinth was among the most gifted recorded in Scripture. However, as charismatic as they were, they were equally carnal. What was one of the manifestations of their carnality? Division within the visible body. There were social and economic divisions...
