Show Notes

Dr. Godfrey is back on AGR, and the topic today is sometimes a controversial one: the Book of Revelation. He and Pastor Chris Gordon discuss the amillennial, postmillennial and premillennial interpretations of Revelation, and look deeper into the book’s theme of good versus evil and the clear distinction between the two. They pinpoint the main goal of Revelation and agree it’s there to help believers face the suffering of this world through perseverance, faith, and hope in the victory of Jesus Christ.

The New Reformation Catechism On Human Sexuality
by Rev. Christopher Gordon

The New Reformation Catechism on Human Sexuality, authored by Rev. Christopher Gordon, is a new biblically based catechism giving clarity on critical issues concerning human sexuality.

"May God bless you richly as you grow in Christian liberty. May this book help you hold fast to the truth and better understand how the full counsel of God speaks to the godly priority of human sexuality."
