Free from people’s approval

Free from people’s approval

Are you being stretched?

Are you being stretched?

The Bible says, ‘In Adam all die.’ Why Adam? He was called to be the head of the first family, therefore he was responsible for what happened in the home. As people, husbands and wives are equal under God. But in marriage each has a different role. What happened in the first
