Perhaps you, like me, have often wondered at the severity of some of the comments Jesus made during His ministry. They seem to stand in stark contrast to the loving, gracious, caring, compassionate God as He is often represented. I believe this is because of a concept that has been eroded from the mindset of our culture.
Steve Stutzman and his wife Dorcas are currently serving in ministry at Strait Paths Foundation. They are based in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, and much of their outreach is focused around Biblical mentoring, teaching and training; they offer personal and group sessions with a heart toward discipleship and leadership that is Biblically founded and Christ-centered.
