What's New

This week (19 Oct), we introduce the parallel exhortations in Matt 6:19-7:12, which give another perspective on our duty to God and to other people. Charts on the study are also available.

A number of friends have been accessing the Cyber Chapel from the area of Sao Paulo, Brazil. In the will of the Lord, Van and Anita will be in Sao Paolo for business from Nov 1 through Nov 7, staying in the Santo Antonio district, and would like very much to make contact with believers in the Lord Jesus. If you'd like to meet, please email Van at the link on the "About" page of this website.

Van's book on divorce and remarriage, Except for Fornicationis now in print, and available through  both Amazon and Barnes and Noble. The Topical Studies page now includes a link to a separate page on the subject of Divorce and Remarriage, which will support materials associated with this book, and Van will discuss questions on the blog.
