If you are on vacation and your destination is a cabin in the Smokey mountains you better have clear directions as to how to get there! I live in Florida, I am a flatlander! Which means….. many times my family has been lost in those mountains! Funny isn’t it – many people today intend to arrive, when their times comes, in heaven. But they have no idea how to get there!

Deadly Gospel Disconnect #2: Knowing the Gospel Factually. Before reading today’s post, please take a minute and please read: “What’s A Gospel Disconnect”. This will help you better understand today’s post.
So, as you read in the last post, I am no electrician! But what if I was an electrician and what if I had electrical knowledge?

The Gospel Connections blog has developed due to convictions I have largely gained from preaching God’s Word. I have had the incredible joy of preaching at Trinity Community Church for the past 17+ years. I love this church! And I love the community this church happens to reside. (Titusville, Florida)
