In Part 3 of the Devoted series, we are looking at Core Issues. The Bible doesn’t address every particular issue, but it does give us a solid moral framework and key life principles to help us apply God’s moral code to the most challenging social issues we face. Together we will learn what God has to say about some of the hot topics facing our world.
