HatAt the end of the day… after everything is over… what do you believe?  What are the things you will not budge on regarding your faith?  What are the things you will hang your hat on to sustain you through life?

Below are seven things I believe that I will not negotiate.  These truths about God are not open to debate or discussion.  After each truth is a personal application that I have settled on after much reflection, thought, and prayer.

Seven Things To Nail Down Before All Hades Breaks Loose
