How Shall We Then Live?

Answers from 1 Peter 4:7-11


This world is not our home. If we live by God’s values, we see that truth becoming clearer every day. The world is growing spiritually darker, which is why anti-Semitism and anti-Christian sentiment are growing stronger. These are the last days. How shall we then live? First Peter 4:7–11 has some answers, and they are the subject of this issue of Israel My Glory. We hope you enjoy it.
IMG In Depth: Our radio host, Chris Katulka, interviews Steve Herzig about his article, "No Place Like Home" in this issue.
