12/3/2017~ Sunday’s Sermon by Nick Perez

Christmas at the Movies; How the Grinch Stole Christmas – John 8:44; You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks out of his own character, for he is a liar and the father of lies.
