Studio Update 23

By: Gabriela Yareliz Today, as many Christians around the world, I spent time deeply reflecting on the cross.

To me,Continue reading “Studio Update 23”

Liberation

By: Gabriela Yareliz Sometimes, life feels like some weird social experiment. Have you noticed? People seem to get less caring and crazier, by the minute. And by crazy, I don’t mean funny-cute-wild, but reckless-not appreciating-consequences-and-mental-health-issue crazy. Life on this sinful planet can make us a bit crazy.

It had been Satan’s purpose to divorce mercy from truth and justice. He sought to prove that the righteousness ofContinue reading “Expression of Justice & Mercy”
